    Ha ha ha.

    Just out of curiosity, do the Melbourne media report on any misbehavior by the AFL players or is that sort of thing off limits? There was a period up here where rugby players, league and union, were making the headlines every day.

    Admittedly some of the things that occurred were terrible and the players involved deserved to be held accountable. But some of the stuff was minor and it seemed like a footy player couldn't fart in public without it ending up in the papers.

    G'day Shrek,

    Hell yeah. Player A gets done for a pub brawl (or mele s.p?, if you're an AFL follower afficinado) and player B gets done for an alleged rape then you have a full 1/2 of the news filled up.

    Nothing else happens in the world when it's AFL season, WWW 3 wouldn't even make the news.

    Watching the box in Adelaide you wouldn't even know there were other clubs around, same goes for W.A. If AFL is a religion in Vic then it has serious Cult memberships in the others mentioned.

    Huge Brumbies/Wallabies fan with a slice of Edinburgh Gunners/Scotland on the side. Since moving to this civilised country 5 years ago I've got quite into League too and will watch big games of Aussie Rules (Dockers for my sins, well, Perth was the first place I lived in Australia and West Coast were a bit too up themselves at the time). Hate soccer for much the same reasons as Waldo can't be doing with AFL - I grew up in Scotland where obsession with the round ball game is on ecilpsed by their complete and utter inability to play the game. Doesn't stop it being force-fed to the punters though.

    Beats me, don't remember and footy clubs by that name? Might be in a country league or something up bush?

    I've been to an FA cup at Wembley - an international at Twickenham - state of origin in Melbourne and they were all fantastic but the biggest thrill has always been a Grand Final at the MCG.

    OK I'm a native of southern climes but I would rate an AFL Grand Final above F1,
    Bathurst, and the others above, perhaps because of good fortune but I've experienced a lot of them and give me Aussie Rules anytime
