    Yeah, the NRL has got the "100 years" right, but maybe the AFL was celebrating their 100th season instead? Were there breaks for the ways in Oz sport?

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    I still remember that old bloke singing that song during the 1997 AFL season

    "... and I thank you... for one huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuundred years"

    There were no breaks but a lot of teams in the Australian Rules football had breaks.

    The AFL - 1897 was year 1, not year 0. Whereas 2008 is actually year 101 for NRL.

    Nah. 1996 was 100th AFL/VFL season, but they didn't complete 100 years of actually playing until 1997. It depends what they were celebrating. So if the NRL are celebrating the latter they're correct.
