Australian Football 24.live

Australian football is different than any other type. To appreciate the variety and multiple skills involved in the game, it is best to see it 24.live. You can get close ups of each player’s skills, physical clashes and umpire decisions by watching the game on television. Replays also allow you to see highlights right away. You can even see the time clock running down to zero, especially in quarter three.

It is important for Australian Football to be noted that it is played on the longest oval of any other football code. It is the longest football game and has thirty six players. The National League game is managed by nine officials.

A 24.live game allows you to appreciate the oval’s size, the speed at which it is played, the amount of running required by the majority of players and the game strategies employed by each team. When you sit comfortably, you can watch players who are so good at reading the game that they know where the ball is going and how to move to intercept or attack it. You hear and see the crowd’s reactions. You feel the emotions of the crowd, as well the reactions of the players.

Different spectators prefer to view the game in different places. As a kid, I loved to stand behind the goals to view the full forwards’ high marking. Others prefer to look near the fence to witness the physical clashes. As an adult, my preference is to sit up high in the area around the oval. This allows me see the entire game unfold at each end of my oval. (The stands are high enough to see the coach’s boxes.

As someone who has umpired the game as both a field umpire and as a goal umpire, I get to observe them doing their job. I can see their positioning and agree with or disagree with their decisions.

You can see the time clock when the game is in its last quarter.

You can also sing the winning team’s club song at live games. After the game is over, the winner’s team’s club song will be played many times over the public-audience system. It’s always thrilling when our team wins. This is a great way of ending the day at the “footy”.
