International football is much more manly than American football. There’s no helmets, shoulder pads or any other protective gear; it’s just a matter of one man’s brute force against another. Lance “Buddy” Franklin, the hottie from Australia’s football team, most definitely exemplifies what it takes to handle this sport (not to mention he looks great in the skin-tight uniforms).

The 24-year-old superstar has made quite a name for himself in the land down under. The cool tats on his left arm depict an Aboriginal kangaroo and elder, dedicated to his indigenous Australian heritage dedication to helping out indigenous youth programs. Yep, he’s a sweet-heart, but can also take down a stampeding athlete with his bare hands.
