I did not know this existed.
Here is the ending with the play by play lol!
Explain. Then attempt to defend your yourself.
Any sport where the hot nubile girls roll around on top of each other can't be all bad.
All shots MUST be taken INSIDE the 16ft shooting arc. There is no dribbling.
The "defender" has to give a 3 foot barrier to allow the shooter to shoot...lol
Now I'm imagining myself at the bottom of that pile - seems an okay sport to me.
I don't know. ..
There's another one ....
This video is essentially how basketball first looked - especially the way they catch a pass and had to stand still:
Dr. James Naismith's Original 13 Rules of Basketball
But as basketball developed it actually went through a really violent phase - and it's why you sometimes still hear basketball players referred to as "cagers"
1900: The Trenton cagers
tl:dr - "When introduced, the cage made pro basketball a rough sport as players engaged in hockey-style body checks against the wire. Frenzied fans would stick hatpins and lit cigars through the cage and into opposing player's flesh.
Violence was common between players, too. Bill Himmelman, who lives in Bergen County and is the NBA's official historian, said he heard all sorts of bruising tales when he began a project of interviewing turn-of-the-century players.
"It was an absolute sin to allow an opponent to score a layup," Himmelman said. "The way it worked was this: if a guy got past you to score, you would lay into him and send him to the floor. If he did it a second time, you would use what we'd today a call a karate chop to his nose. With this going on, every player had a broken nose."
They should call this thing 'Down-hill rag-dolling.'
Okay, what's the appeal of this one?
I have absolutely no idea....
But, it draws thousands of both spectators and contestants annually..
It seems the winner gets to keep the wheel of cheese, along with the accolades and injuries that go along with it.
Mmmm, nubile women. Yes, I am a dirty old man, lol
Looks like the original rules basketball
Netball's a great sport. It's fast and quite physical - having coached both that and football in school sport for many years, I can tell you, the smarts needed to be a good player are pretty high - certainly higher than in football. All about movement, awareness and footwork. My daughter plays and she loves it.
That clip, by the way, was a massive moment for us - Australia are like the NBA of netball. To win it was spectacular. Very proud of our girls!
Can't defend it beyond that - you either like it or you don't!
To be fair, the balls are only slightly smaller than a basketball, but the hoops are three inches in diameter smaller, so your shots have to be more accurate. And there is not backboard to play off of.
Just giving you a hard time.
Yeah, why the gripe about it? Hot babes playing a sport they are into? Works for me.
So it’s basketball for pussies?
No. It’s basketball without a back board.
Would you mind if we send you Beth Mowins on a permanent basis to do your net ball play-by-play?
