The AFL Laws - the official rule book for the game. We recommend this only as a reference.  It is not designed to be used to learn the game but rather for officiating and governing the sport. (Would you teach someone how to understand baseball or basketball by handing them the rule book? Probably not. However, since we get many requests for this, here it is.)

(For those interested in the history of the game and rules we have a FAQ on that: From The Past: Origins Of The Laws of Australian Football )
