Football is a very physical game, there's no denying it. But as rough as you may think American football is, wait until you see how they play in Australia.

Australian football player Brian Lake was going about his business on the field when he apparently didn't like the way his opponent was playing.

So he threw the man on the ground and began choking him, which seems like the right idea right? Wrong.

Even after teammates from both sides rushed in to help this madman would not let go.

They eventually managed to pull Lake off his opponent, who was suspended for a month a few days later.

Let's just say I'll stick to my American football.
