Proposed Rendering

Presumably very similar to football (soccer) or rugby fields.
maybe we could use the four goal posts on some sort of icon, that would be very distinctive and unique?Myfanwy 03:10, 3 January 2008 (UTC)


Please add your opinions here.

  • Sounds sensible - I've just tagged Subi Oval with this. --CameronPatrick
  • I think aussie is too informal. I think AFL, or Australian Rules Football --inas 23:34, 12 August 2007 (BST)
    • I think "Australian Rules Football" too, AFL is too ambiguous when used internationally (See Wikipedia:AFL) Justcameron 17:06, 21 September 2007 (BST)
      • afl!=australian rules football. afl is the name of one of the aussie rules competitions played in australiaMyfanwy 03:10, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
    • Surely sport=football and football=australian_rules would be better, all the footballs can be classed under one tag. Bruce89 20:36, 21 September 2007 (BST)
      • well, there's really not much similarity between all the codes, and introducing a sub-tag adds complexity while improving nothing. i am very doubtful anyone would want to search for 'a football ground', not caring what code it is for, and that is the only benefit i can see from doing thisMyfanwy 03:10, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Thought: lesiure='sports gorund' and a secondary sport=arf tag, would cover this but allow flexibility ShakespeareFan00 23:41, 22 October 2007 (BST)
    • I agree this that thought, because the lost of theese sportsfiels als in multiuse. but this would be hard to realize , I'm afraid. sport=football and football=australian_rules would be the best way to realize. --Cbm 09:22, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
  • I can't see why we would pick Australian Rules Football to start using tags and subtags to classify a type of playing field. Why make this change now? Its just a new sporting field, and should be no different to any other sporting field. Lets just add it in the same way. --inas 03:22, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
    • In principle I agree with this, why treat it any different. However, the football tag is pretty useless without either local knowledge or more information. In different parts of the world it can mean soccer, US football, Aussie rules, Rugby league, Rugby union. I live in a place where it could be easily be several of these. We need to either specify that it covers all the above (in which case why do we have the soccer tag?), pick one (I don't want to get into the fight over which), start sub-tagging it, or deprecate it and use more specific tags.

  • IMO we want to steer the fine line between being too formal and too informal. We should use an unabbreviated, grammatically correct English version of the normally-used name for the sport, avoiding the generic term "football" as being too ambiguous worldwide. So sport=soccer, sport=american_football, sport=australian_rules_football, sport=rugby_union, sport=rugby_league and so on. Gerv 12:29, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
    • well said. technically, soccer is actually called association football, but that's probably too formal. and don't forget canadian football and galeic footballMyfanwy 22:58, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
  • I think that sport=aussie_rules is a bit too generic - could be anything. What about sport=aussie_football or sport=australian_football or such? -- Ulfl 22:52, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
    • that's looking the best so far, if there's nothing else come up by vote time, i will change to that Myfanwy 01:09, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
