Australian rules football is a sport between two teams of 18 who move an oval ball by kicking, handballing and running with the ball. A distinctive feature is the mark where a player who catches the ball from a kick is awarded possession. The original rules are attributed to the sportsman Tom Wills to form a "football club with a code of laws" to keep cricketers fit during winter. The earliest recorded match was played on 15 June 1858 between Scotch College and Melbourne Grammar School.

VALE JACK DYER    To mark the passing of club legend Jack Dyer, the Richmond cheer squad went out of its way with a giant banner that included the likeness of the great Captain Blood. The words accompanying the picture read: “Heaven’s football team can now take the field because your captain has arrived. Jack Dyer, 1913-2003.” It was a fitting tribute to one of the greats of Australian football.
