Just wondering if by any chance you are able to get a video of the first 5 minutes of the Australia v Ireland International Rules second game, when that dog ran onto the field and was chasing the ball?! (I still can't believe he was on there for 5+ minutes!). I'd LOVE to be able to download a version of that ...

No luck with any video, Richard, but here’s an update. Dog goes home!

Try www.ifilm.com. Click the "viral videos" section. They're like the Daily Recycler on steroids, when it comes to offbeat footage.

So you're saying that the non-American version of football is going to the dogs?

it was appropriate that doggie was on the field playing 'football' because it underlined what a total joke that 'international rules' game is. it's an embaressment.

What concerned me most was how much better the dog was than most of the Oz players. I look forward to seeing Brock Burn in an AFL jumper next season.
