AFL

Post by Bek on Sun Mar 01, 2009 4:52 am

Now, most people won't know what this is, lol.
Australian Rules Football, one of only two sports invented in Australia.
So, to those that do watch it.
Favourite team?
Mine is the mighty Essendon Bombers!

Who's going to win the premiership?
As much as I'd like the Bombers to, I think Hawthorn again, maybe Geelong.

Who's going to win the wooden spoon?
I'm hoping either Brisbane Lions or Carlton, although I think Freo will probably take it.

I support Carlton and they WILL NOT be wooden spooners.

I think Geelong might win the Grand Final and Melbourne might finish on the bottom!

Where does that hate come from?

The team is looking real good and I'm so pumped!

If Essendon play Brisbane at the GABBA, do you go? Are you excited about the new Queensland teams?

It's just that Bombers fans aren't allowed to like Carlton at all, lol, plus my Dad's a Carlton fan, and when they do happen to beat us, I cop a lot of shit from him.

Yep, going to the Bombers vs Lions at the Gabba! Can't wait.

Well, I'm excited to see the sport is growing in Queensland, but I don't really think they should be putting it on the Gold Coast, because it's only an hour from Brisbane, which means, it's really only going to be accessible to those in SEQ. I'd be more for putting a team in Cairns or Townsville, or at least giving it more exposure up there, because, I'm not sure about Cairns, but T'ville is very much a Rugby League city, I'd like to see the balance evened up a bit.

I think it's silly to be putting teams in Queensland. One team is definitely enough. It's a rugby state, even thought Aussie Rules is much better than Rugby League (Union smashes League).

If anything, we should be getting rid of the teams that can't even afford to be in the league. I'm looking at you North Melbourne. And you Western Bulldogs. I don't care how good the teams are, its unfair having them get funding from the AFL to keep their team afloat. If you can't pay, piss off imo.

And I hope Crows can actually win a finals match this year Very Happy.

They will be funding the new sides, why can't they fund older sides? There are a lot of disappointed people around because of the lack of funding their teams are getting.

But why should teams get funding. And if they do, all teams should get the same amount of funding. Seriously, if you can't afford to play in the AFL, go back the the WAFL/VFL/SANFL.

Well, why don't you seriously call the AFL and tell them that then?
