I am a bit football illiterate. I think I barrack for Collikilda.....I have it noted down somewhere. But in Melbourne, knowledge of football is unavoidable. This one grabbed me.
An AFL footballer (insert name so that he can be googled, Chris Judd) has been accused of eye gouging at a football match. I would have thought the term eye gouge was pretty obvious, but correct me if my idea of the deed is wrong.
You stick your fingers into someones eye socket hard and try to gouge out their eye. They end up with a sore eye if they are lucky or blind. The aim must be to damage the eye in some way. What a marvellous thing to do to another human. Very sporting.
