I'm not registered for American Football yet but the team I'm going to play for had a win today in the 2nd game of the season. They are currently 2-0. https://www.facebook.com/sdgc.oilers/

I'm not registered because I haven't paid the fees- it's different to rugby /rugby league where my fees and travel expenses were covered by the club.

whoa.  :wowthatwasnutswtf:

It's cool seeing you respect the sport too (for so long). So many rugby fans i've seen, hate american football etc, which is annoying to me, both sports are incredible. Most American Football fans don't even know what rugby is I imagine, lmao. I'm sure they'd like it though. Americans love contact sports.

Interested to see what your thoughts would be after playing it in a league like that (if you do).

I imagine you'd be a good offensive weapon (WR maybe?) :D :ibrunning: Also good on defense in something like safety etc. There's alot to learn in the sport though, probably easier to come in on an offensive role. Defense is crazy complex.

Yeah I've been to two training sessions so far. On Monday the session is focused on defence and on Wednesday the session is focused on offence. Apparently there are 29 defensive plays they run but I got told that they only used about 8 of them in the first game because those 8 players were working well.

On the offensive side on Wednesday they had me playing as a WR on the right side (X, Z or Y I can't remember) and it was fairly overwhelming. Since I'm not registered they haven't given me the play book but one of the injured receivers was mentoring me through the drills telling me what route I had to run when the QB was calling out the plays. Most of the noobs also have a playbook on their forearm as a cheat sheet but I don't have access to that either. I remember there was like 10 routes but 4 of them are ones most common e.g. hitch, pocket, rocket. I got told you run 75% speed until you make the cut and that's when you burst 100% and instead of thinking about it in yards it's better to think about in steps. Like if the route is run 12 yards straight and cut to the outside on a 90 degree angle you take 6-7 steps @ 75% then cut hard @ 100%.

My favorite route (once again I can't remember the name) is the one where you run 5 yards straight and then cut in at at a 45 degree angle to the middle of the field. Every time I was easily able to beat the defender but my hands let me down because my catching skills are poor + no gloves and a wet night.

It's a weak league but in my team there are a couple of players that have represented Australia Outback (the national team) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gridiron_Australia and a lot of others that play state. We have a couple of American ex-pats that play as well including the RB who is an African-American who ironically used to play JUCO for Ellsworth, which is one of the teams Indy plays against in Last Chance U. I did google his name but I couldn't find anything on him.

Edit- This is his fb page of the RB. https://www.facebook.com/sean.stewart.581730

I don't understand the hate for rival sports. I don't play table tennis but doesn't mean I hate the sport of table tennis it's just not something I'm interested in. I always see comments on facebook of rugby players making comments about American Football saying it's a soft because of pads and vice versa American Football supporters bagging the athleticism of rugby players. To me they are two different sports but I respect them both.

This is cool. If you can get around the waiting you'll love the game. I played a season when I was 15 for the Sherbrooke Saxons. Disappointed I couldn't continue but it just clashed too much with basketball.

Yeah I haven't played a game yet so I haven't experienced the waiting but I"m sure it goes quickly once you're there on the day. Do the Sherbrooke Saxons still exist?

Haha actually it doesn't. I played WR, cornerback and some special teams stuff. It was great fun but I remember having to be there an hour before the game for the warm up and then the actual game lasting over 3 hours. Makes for a long day when you're used to basketball being done in 60 minutes.

*edit- this is the scene in Melbourne now. Couldn't find any source for the Saxons although we are talking over 20 years ago.

Dude that sucks!

Time to get swole then. No better excuse to go beach body than a torn hammy.

Defs!

I'm going to have a week off though as I can't even walk up or down stairs atm without holding onto a rail! Experienced this today at the train station it was agony. Lucky I have an office job!

That is awful :( :( :(
Heal good and fast man, and make the best out of it as coges said, don't let the no-sports make you a couch-booze-potato ( talking from personal experience in the past ).
woot

Bench-
barx12
60x3 this was absolutely killing my right shoulder.

My shoulder injury occurred on the 22nd July over 2 months ago but is still causing me issues.

DB Bench-
I tried doing DB bench as I know dumbbells place less stress on your shoulders.

10x12
20x8 still too painful on my right shoulder. The weight feels weak but the pressure was just too much to handle.

Chin Ups-
7x3

Treadmill-
Walking 125 calories

Chin Ups-
7x3

Pull Ups-
Used a machine and set the weight to 19kg, which made it 19kg easier to do a pullup.

Treadmill-
Walked at 4.6km/h and burnt 200 calories.

My shoulder is slowly getting better and I'm not experiencing as much pain doing chin ups now. Still felt a bit of pain in my collarbone doing the chin ups though but it's getting better week to week.

Tomorrow I've got a physio appointment booked for my hamstring but I might get them to also have a look at my shoulder as well, although my hamstring is definitely my main priority so that I can run again. It'd also be great to be able to do squats again, which I haven't been able to do for the last 7 months!!!

Physio-

I went to the Physio after work and got my hamstring examined. I thought they were going to do scans and massaging etc. but it was different then I expected. The physio asked me about how I injured it and took some notes down on his computer. He then got me to lie down on the massage table and got me to lay down on my back and stomach in a few different positions testing the flexibility of both legs and then the strength of my legs.

After that we went to the gym and he showed me a few exercises that he wants me to do every couple of days. The exercises were romanian deadlifts, hip thrusts, calf raises, squats, and another exercise where you bend over with a DB and stretch your leg back and up. He also wants me to do some running and said he'll email the program to me.

After the gym I asked if there was any stretches he wanted me to do but he said that the literature isn't supportive of stretches and the gym work will be adequate. I asked about the massage and he said when I come back in a couple of weeks he can do some.

I have a rugby league tournament on the 27th of October so I'm hoping that I will be able to play in it but he said it's unlikely as it will probably take 6 weeks to recover and I should focus on the off-season for next year.
