    Default AFL (aussie rules)

    Being a Melbournian this is a sport I love, and also have trouble avoiding .

    Are there many other Australians, or overseas people on here who are into the aussie rules? Who do you guys support? What are your thoughts on the competition this year? Who are you expecting to be a threat in September? Which outside chances do you think might come up and be a surprise?

    Love it, love it, LOVE IT and this year is AWESOMETASTIC!!

    Ps I'm a Saints supporter


    For those who give a shit but don't know what that means;

    St Kilda est: 1873

    Bottom of the ladder finishes: 26 times. The eternal underdog.

    Premierships: 1 in 1966. Yes one premiership in 135 years!


    But then... 2009 season so far:
    19 wins
    0 losses
    163%
    Top of the ladder and lookin' pruddy.

    . Saints are on fire at the moment. Saw last week's win, and it was clinical.

    I'm a Geelong supporter . So I'm hoping we get back on track and give you a good fight for it. Been looking forward to a Saints v Cats showdown since 2004 when we both almost got there as young teams.

    Hell yeah. Seems destined to be Cat v Sainters final atm.

    Wouldn't mind a Crows v Saints final though, I have a soft spot for the local team... as long as they lose

    ahh footy

    I just have a top 4 preference,

    Melbourne Demons
    West Coast Eagles
    Western Bulldogs
    Sydney Swans

    Whoever does well enough is okay, am nonchalant about the sport though. WB's seem to be doing well this time round.
    Yes most likely a saints and cats final.

    I've tried to like it for most of my life. I've really tried. But I just can't get into it. Even when the local team (West Coast Eagles) were doing well. Cricket was a breeze to get passionate about, and more recently rugby union has made a spirited grab for my heart. But AFL? Meh. Maybe if we had some international competition I'd be able to muster some interest. And before you bring up International Rules take a good hard look at yourself.

    It's really just robbing a significant portion of our sportsmen of the opportunity to represent their nation.

    Sports progress OhJivinOne, they progress!

    The wonderful men who invented AFL took the best on offer from rugby and soccer and created this magnificent bastard child called footy. We owe them much!

    Why is the favourite lift among AFL players the barbell biceps curl? Answers anyone?
    That's all I want to know. I prefer league.
