That’s gonna leave a mark. Australian rules football has a reputation for being a rugged sport for a lot of reasons. The most common is that the players tackle one another, but they don’t wear a ton of padding and helmets like their counterparts in American football. Never in my life, however, have I considered the ball itself to be a dangerous weapon. As you can see from the video above, Eric MacKenzie of the Aussie Football League recently found out the hard way that it can be.
The good news is MacKenzie probably didn’t feel a thing — when it happened. Something tells me there was a little swelling a few hours later. Fortunately, it is believed that Eric is going to be just fine.
