TAMPA, Fla. -- Aussie Ben Graham, the Arizona punter, says despite his four years in the NFL, his Cardinals teammates still give him grief about his Australian Rules Football past.

"I wanted them to accept me for who I am, not who I was," said the 6-5, 235-pound Graham. "But gradually the DVDs on my Aussie day made the rounds. They YouTubed it. They gave it to me about the tight jersey and little tight shorts.

"All of these guys grew up watching late-night ESPN with these guys in white hats and white coats going like this (thrusts both arms straight out in front of him) wondering what the Aussie game was all about. Now I have that go like this (thrusts arms up in a touchdown signal). I like that better."
