Before the loss to the Rams I would have said yes. I'm torn because I want to be all in with them, but the largest margin that they've won a game by is 7. Every game is super close until the last minute. When they start putting teams away in the 3rd and 4th quarter then I will say they are for real.
Zim, you're correct about rugby being the most insanely violent thing people do to each other which isn't illegal or banned by one of the ten commandments. Personally though I'm not just about violence, I love the open play of AFL.
