Facebook makes a page like suggestion for the Australian Extreme Gridiron or AXG Facebook page, “What the hell?” I ask.
After the LGL and LFL joke I am thinking what is this crap, someone else trying to cash in on Gridiron is Australia.
The below is direct from the AXG facebook page.
“Australian Extreme Gridiron or AXG
Is an exciting new sport adaptation. We are a fast paced 7 a side variation of American Football.
AXG also brings another exciting twist to a traditional sport we are all used to viewing.
Whilst Australian Extreme Gridiron is still going to deliver full contact, exciting collisions and tackles. It will be done with no helmets and no shoulder pads.
Think of it as American Football being played The Australian way. Just a mouth-guard and a No Worries attitude to playing one of the toughest sports on the planet.
Australian Extreme Gridiron is launching a full National Competition through Spring/Summer of 2015/16
This will be introduced with an exhibition game between our West Coast and Adelaide franchises March 21st at Intiga Stadium, Inglewood.
AUSTRALIAN EXTREME GRIDIRON – AXG
AMERICAN FOOTBALL, THE AUSTRALIAN WAY.
The exhibition has been run and won but will this version of Gridiron take off…. probably not but we will see
