I best address the football issues one at at time. You see, depending on what state or territory you reside in will determine what you call football/ footy. Now all the football codes are mostly national, back in the day they were not and certain states played certain football codes. Midnight, the footy link you provided relates to Australia Rules football and is played in four 20 minute quarters plus stoppage time in each quarter. If you lived in Victoria, Sth Australia, Western Australia, NT or Tasmania you would have referred to Aussie Rules as Footy. If you lived in NSW or QLD you would have referred to Rugby League as footy and Rugby Union as Rugby or Union. Both are played in two 40 minute halves while the former has been played in four 20 minute quarters during extreme heat or when a knockout competition existed during the regular season competition. Most outside of these two states and also in the USA would refer to both of these football codes as Rugby. Troglodytes! Crispy, it is in fact the All Blacks who are tops in this sport of Rugby and not the Aussies though we have had some success over the years. The 45 minute halves you are thinking of as football we actually call Soccer though the die hards are using the term football more and more to refer to soccer. And yes our soccer is played in two 45 minute halves just like everyone else. Perhaps the reference to 'match of the day' led you to think of soccer. We need a lot more than Cahill to move up in the world of soccer as that is the weakest of all our football codes. The A.C.T. were pretty much divided on their view of what footy was. Baron, you know where I live and all you need to do is look up the footy team called the Dragons and you will have your answer. Also, why do you persist with questions if you know I can look them up on Google. There is no imposter for there is only one night attack, and that is I, he who has been plucking your tail feathers since you arrived. So there you have it, we actually have 4 football codes.
