You can lose ALL your points for playing one too many people in Aussie Rules football | Weird Rules
- Published: 27 June 2019
- The simplest mistakes can have the biggest consequences. No, I'm not talking about why I'm here in the first place, but an extremely weird rule that can wipe out your entire score if you have just one too many players on the field. What's more is in this sport, there are already 18-players on each side, so honestly how big of a difference is 19?
In Aussie Rules Football, if you field one extra person - whether by mistake or a substitute coming on too early for an injured player - the umpires can knock you all the way back down to zero. It's like that kid you played games with growing up who would get frustrated and make up a rule that started everything over. And no one likes that kid. I hope you read this, Tyler.
