not sure how an aussie rules football differs from american, but i at least know about a rugby ball


I think we can probably excuse it, I'm sure the artists involved haven't seen a rugby ball before.

if they are like most americans...yeah prob not.
shame really, rugby is a hell of a game, much more fun to watch than american football, and way more fun to play too :twisted:

To be honest except for Handball and baseball/cricket i like see other sports...
So yesterday while zapping i stop at ESP America and start seeing that match... I like the GAME but the downtimes are tooooo much... (And i complain about Football)... but worst was the Cardinal vs someone, i think that the last 7minutes of the 1st part took about 40minutes... :S

That's what I don't like about it either. Watched the Super Bowl last spring, thought "OK, kick-off is at 3AM here, it is a ~90 minute game with a half-hour break for some pop star to fail at miming the lyrics to their songs, I'll be in bed by 5." Oh no, the last 15 seconds of the game took about ten minutes because they kept stopping play every three seconds for a 2 minute advert break.

As I understand it, that's one of the big draws of college, and even in some areas high school, football: there tends to be less 'artificial' downtime (time-shifting for ads) as well as fewer 'let's get all the refs to watch TV for 5 minutes to see what just happened, then argue for 5 more' moments.

No problem. It was really convenient to be able to find that graphic.

Personally, I'd rather play any of them than watch them, though rugby and Aussie rules tend to be more interesting to watch for me because of the flow and I hardly know the rules/strategy used in American football. I'll take rugby over soccer too: fewer people working on acting awards ;)

Well, this is why I hate basketball. There is no other sport where the last 30 seconds can take 15 minutes, and where normally the first 57 minutes of the game are totally irrelevant. Then there's soccer that I can't stand because there's 120 minutes of guys rolling around holding their shins. And why I love baseball, because a team can be down to it's last strike, and still pull it out and win (Here's looking at you Texas Rangers.. :D )

If rugby and aussie rules were available more here, i'd be interested.. heck, I'd even give cricket a whirl. Read an interesting article recently about cricket, and what americans generally don't realize is that watching cricket is more like having a picnic, where you are watching the kids play all afternoon. It's not the massive over-stimulus lightshow that american sports have become. You can go to a cricket match and bring a book.

Ugh, that was one of the worst Fiesta Bowls I've been to :(

Nothing against your Ducks - they played pretty well - K-State just looked like they were sleepwalking the whole game. Not much energy, on either side of the ball. Didn't help that Kline ran the play clock down to like 0.005 seconds on EVERY damn play.

Was really looking forward to this one, too.

New upgraded heirlooms in 5.2 take the old one PLUS the items original cost.
For 5 more levels.

It's just comical when I think about how much time it would take me to grind out all the JP to upgrade those heirlooms instead of just levelling the characters from 80-85 without them.

After the XP nerf it's probably not even worth it. My shadow priest went from 80-82 in like 2-3 hours with just the cloak and helm + guild perks.

Unless you've already burnt your JP for other things, and are saving honor for the next season stuff.

However, doesn't effect me as there's no way I'm going to do another toon in the grindfest Blizz is creating. They really seem intent on slowing down alt progression, even as people are complaining more and more.

Eh, my intent is to get four of my alts to 90, then just sit them at Halfhill. I have no intention of gearing them up and raiding on them like I did in Cata.

I know it's been mentionned - but it's HILARIOUS to gain XP when being MC'ed by Sha of Anger. At least wipes aren't as bad to live through :-p

I managed to break not one but two different mind control mechanics in separate instances while farming for transmog gear on my hunter yesterday.

Somehow got stuck on a cage when I derped on Felmyst and for some reason despite still standing in the cloud the MC kept dropping and renewing until she went to land. Then for an encore my pet got stuck on the statue when I sent him on Kael in P4, got mc'd and just stood there for some reason until the timer ran out.

Wonder how many other ways I can inadvertently break the game.

Wha? How does that work? Do you gain XP from Sha killing players if you're <90?
