Aussie Rules Football is not for the faint of heart. During a recent showdown between West Coast and St Kilda, Eric MacKenzie showed one and all just how dangerous this sport is when made the ill-advised decision to block a Rhys Stanley kicked ball with his face. As you would expect, he got knocked out cold for his troubles.

Check it out:

On the bright side, West Coast won the game by 33. What’s one potentially life-threatening hit in the head in the grand scheme of a massive rout like that?

Note: That's not him in the photo. It just paints a good picture of what happened here.
