Mayo vs Meath Brawl

If you are Irish(and at least 24) you remember it:)
If not, this was the All-Ireland Senior Football final in 1996.

Gaelic football is great entertainment, although I'm still not sure about the rules. It's a crazy game and is huge in Ireland. Another one is hurling, which is hockey, baseball, rugby mix.

Interesting....Did anybody notice how the fans are caged off? And a rather stout one at that. If that fence had not been there I think it's "game on" . How cool would that have been to see?

They could have stopped it if someone had yelled, "Hey, you guys just spilled my Guiness!"

#7 Rules: the ball can be carried for four steps, but in between must be bounced or kicked (like a keep up, from hand to foot and back again), you cannot bounce twice in a row though, so bounce/kick/bounce/kick etc...the goal looks like a rugby goal, if you score over the crossbar (like rugby) you get 1 point and under (like football) you get 3 points, you can use your hands/fists or FEET to pass or #9 this is NOT rugby, it is Gaelic FOOTBALL..The FOOT being used more so than anything else...(unlike American "Football" where the hands are used more) (in this video notice the ball being bounced or kept up while running, and the players kicking the ball at goal or to each other)
Hurling has similar rules, except a rounded stick is used with a small ball (Great game)

#9 Badboy007. Did you see the shape of the ball that was dropped? Please google the word 'Rugby' yourself and then 'Gaelic Football' as you obviously have no clue about either.

To all those saying this looks like rugby...the ball is not in play, this is JUST fighting, but it happened during a Gealic FOOTBALL match. The very first thing you hear is the referees whistle, calling a stop to play. You are not actually watching the game being played.
But ye, this type of football usually does involve striking the ball with the foot, in fact you cant score a goal from your hands.
Even rugby was originally called "rugby football", "rugby" being the area in england where the game was adapted from regular football(soccer).
Apart from soccer, this form of football is probably the closest one to the literal meaning out of all the variations, it also predates most other countries(Australia and the US anyway) that have developed their own form.
