Ben Graham will play some lockout football


Plenty of football players are spending the lockout doing plenty of things other than playing football. One football player -- to the extent that punters are football players -- will be playing football.

To the extent that punting amounts to playing football.

Per the Herald Sun, Cardinals punter Ben Graham will represent Australia in International Federation of American Football world championships in July. Graham’s team has been assigned to Group A, with games against the United States, Mexico, and Germany.

Given that the U.S. typically trounces its opponents in these events, it’s safe to say that Graham will have plenty of chances to punt when he faces the Americans.

The other countries in the tournament are Japan, Canada, France, and host country Austria.
