Charlie Murphy said it best.
Whenever I bring up my dislike for Delly’s play style, I’m met with, “quit your sooking and man up! It’s a contact sport.” – “he’s not dirty, he’s just clumsy” or, “he’s Aussie!”
I understand and respect Aussie camaraderie.

However, in a sporting context a “falcon” is a term used for an accidental knock to the head with the ball.

Hello again folks! First up: trick plays in sport normally involve doing the unexpected – lining up in a different formation or getting certain players to play different roles. Normally, however, it doesn’t involve simply walking through the ENTIRE team, but hats off to this team who pulled it off quite nicely.
Last week, we had fun bringing you the 10 Greatest Sports Commercials! This week, we are doing the complete opposite.
There are tonnes of terrible sports commercials out there that try too hard to be funny, filled with puns and stuff that doesn’t make sense. Then there are those that leave you standing there, wondering where your brain cells went. Well, we sacrificed our IQs to go through and rank ALL of them. Ok, not all of them but the 10 worst sports commercials we could find.
Otherwise, Enjoy Yo’self!
Commercials and sport are enemies, right? We hate ads during the game. And yet sometimes the creative advertising folks actually get it right. The right mix of humour, sincerity, inspiration and sport.
We’ve literally studied every single sports commercial ever from a philosophical, historical and meta-theological perspective to bring you the definitive compilation of the Greatest Sports Commercials ever made.
We know there are heaps of them out there and we tried to mix up the sports as much as we could so feel free to disagree (even though you’re probably wrong).
Leave comments on ones that you think we missed and we will amend the article if we happen to agree.
As always, Enjoy Yo’self!
