AMERICANS have got their sport fix through Saturday's AFL match between Essendon and Fremantle.
With many sports in the USA postponed due to COVID-19, the match beween the Bombers and Dockers was shown on Fox Sports 1. Every game can also be streamed internationally via Watch AFL.

Enjoying some AFL on FS1 right now (and let's go Essendon -15.5 points "for recreational purposes")... It's actually really badass, despite pretty much being the only sport in the world on...— Shaun Bummer (@shaunbum) March 21, 2020
I also LOVE the finger pistol signal the umpires show when a goal is scored. pic.twitter.com/dKzYClrd83
I have now resorted to watching Australian football on FS1. I have no idea what is going on but it’s quite possibly the most entertained that I’ve been in days.— Trenton Cody (@TrentonJCody) March 21, 2020
