Since springing from out of nowhere late last year, YouTube has come to hold the leading position in online video with 29 per cent of the US multimedia entertainment market, according to the latest weekly data from Web measurement site Hitwise.If you've got Broadband and you haven't tried You Tube yet, it's immense. However obscure your obsessions, there's bound to be some easily downloadable video clip to match your appetite and enthusiasms.
For example -- and I know you'll all be very excited about this -- You Tube also has clips of all the best moments of AFL, the world's most libertarian sport. Have a look and see why:
- Short intro. 'Shoot to thrill!'
- AFL never has nil-al draws. See: Here's the best goals of 2005. And some classics.
- AFL has rules against the initiation of force ... while anybody's looking: The best hits of 2005.
- Too many highlights to mention; here's the best from 2004.
- No "Top Ten Marks of the Year" -- and you know you want to watch the big men fly -- so here's a whole slew of spectacular screamers, and the top ten marks from Essendon for 2004. And watch God fly right here.
- And while we're talking religion, watch Muslims at the Mecca of football, the Salam Cafe crew at the 2005 AFL Grand Final at the MCG: "A very religious event, this Grand Final... I hear you guys worship AuSsie Rules. What kind of religion is that?"
