BRING IT BACK!!!!

Postby swannee » Sun Aug 28, 2016 3:36 pm

Like many of us I guess, I have been watching AFL for a long time now and am very familiar with its well established traditions and customs.
This brings me to a very sad observation that others too may have noticed.

I refer to the sad demise of the once familiar and traditional method of approval, congratulations or best wishes in our great game, ...namely the "BUM-TAP".
That particular action has a LONG history in AFL but now it seems to have largely been replaced by the head rub. Players race up to a mate who has just kicked a goal or has done something equally as commendable and rub the hell out of his hair ....or bald head should he be follicularly challenged.
Despite the current danger of dis-arranging the ever expanding plethora of elaborate damned man-buns, this has now taken over from the more intimate, ...and FAR preferable in my opinion, man-to-man contact of the bum-tap.
Is it the fear of being perceived as "gay" now?
Hopefully not, .....men did this in FAR less enlightened times with no fear of it being interpreted as in any way homosexual.
Whatever the reason, one of the great traditions of our game is being lost, and I think it has a lot to do with the prevailing all-pervasive bug-bear of Political Correctness that is hog-tying our current society.

BRING BACK THE BUM-TAP!!!
I tried being "normal" once......worst two minutes of my life!!!

You have a keen eye Mr Swannee and indeed I suspect you may me right, however I have noticed something different yet again that is creeping into the game that maybe I am putting a tad too much emphasis on but it makes a boring game more appealing to watch :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: .

It's the penis on penis rub to celebrate a goal!! :yum: The one time bear hug with no hip contact now seems to have morphed into a proper embrace...good to see....should be more off it.

Its sad seeing the H & Away season coming to an end.

There I was looking at the BIG heads, ...when all the time the best action was down below with the little heads! :lick:

Just like at the nudist wedding, I guess the team knows who the "best man" is!
Although, as this picture clearly demonstrates, the action does require the players to be of roughly equal height.
If Buddy and Ben attempted such a celebratory manoevre, I think we just might see some on-field PORN! :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

There has been another phenomenon in AFL post goal celebrations, ...and that's an exhibition of vigorous Same-Sex Dancing!
Full Ballroom position too! (Some going in close and getting VERY intimate!)
See below:

And just like back in the 1920's, a dance marathon can involve one of the partners needing to be held upright.... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
