Austin Still on Top, Upsets Cause Mass Scramble

So it seems that I included a Game of Thrones spoiler in my first poll recap of the season last week.  Of course, I was under the impression that it was common knowledge, much like the fact that the Austin Crows were going to be the unanimous #1 ranked team to begin 2016.

For that, I apologize, and I’ll try not to do it again.

Lady Magpies, Demons, Jills Head North of the Border

The opening chapter of the story that was New York Lady Magpies’ 2015 season was written on a muddy, rough patch of field in downtown Montreal nearly 365 days ago.

On that day, the Lady ‘Pies brought their brooms with them, and they swept aside four tough Canadian club sides to become the first American team to win the AFL Quebec Women’s tournament.  It was the first indication of a season that would turn out to the best in club history.

Austin Begins 2016 on Top of First Poll

This has been a week of unsurprising revelations.

Jon Snow came back to life, Ted Cruz proved to be the most awkward man in America, and the Austin Crows were voted as the #1 team in the country in the first USAFL Top 20 Poll.

Our panelists had little hesitation about this decision, as the Crows swept all nine first place votes to attain a perfect score of 180 points.  The same occurred in the first poll last year, when the New York Magpies accrued the same score months after lifting their second John Harrell Cup in their own right.

2016 Season Preview - Women's West

We all know that the sun sets in the West, the last rays of each day reflecting off the carmine hued boulders of the Rocky Mountains, through the orange and cool colors of the desert and into the navy blue expanse of the Pacific.

From a women's footy standpoint, however, the day has been long and everlasting.  The brightest point being the Denver Bulldogs, who have come out on top in each of the last six Nationals.  But the pack that is chasing the top dogs is led from out West, with two clubs in the northern part of the great Californian republic nipping at their heels.

Kickin' with Klatt: The One at the SCG

As I sit here on my 14 hour flight back home, listening to Spotify and trying to get some sleep, it all keeps running through my mind. With sore muscles serving as a constant reminder that I just played an entire game of footy with no rest the day before, it's hard not to keep thinking about it. Add to that the fact that I just played on the historic Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) in front of what got up to an estimated 6,000 people before the GWS Giants and the Sydney Swans took the field, and you can see why it's all still racing through my mind.
