Aussie Rules football is the gridiron of Melbourne in terms of popularity. My first response witnessing the sport back in 2002 was, "Wait... they don't wear pads?" Outside of my job today there was some shoe company promotion thing happening which wasn't very exciting, but what was exciting was seeing players from the Collingwood Magpies wandering about.
