    Australian rules football, who watches this? I have been in australia 7 years and watch bits an pieces here and there but just can't enjoy a full game.

    Am I ignorant, because I am in Australia do I have to appreciate this?

    Thoughts?

    Adelaide here. No seriously a great game between traditional rivals at the MCG is a must.

    I played Australian Rules back before my son was born. I loved the sport although coverage here wasn't always easy. And I haven't had time in at least 5 years to even keep up. But it's a great game. The Demons backed our club so that is who I have always followed closest.

    Ahh the Demons. They are not travelling well at the moment. They are a proud club and its sad to see where they are at now. They remind me a bit of Forest to be honest!

    Forget AFL and watch the NRL, much better to watch.

    I love it. Watched a few live games when I was over there and I still really get into it on TV here.

    My Aussie family all support Richmond, whereas I follow the United of AFL.

    I used to watch it, when Hawthorns were dominating, I'll watch it, if it's on TV but I'm not going to seek out coverage on the internet if it's not.

    NRL for me as well but that was because I spent all my time down under in QLD.

    I hate League and am much more of a Union fan. I hate Leeds Rhinos and their fans with a passion so that might have something to do with it.

    Big Geelong fan here, 3 out of 5 and this year looking pretty good as well.

    As long as we play Hawthorne in the GF its in the bag.

    My Mrs likes Geelong. I put it down to the cat on the old change jersey and the fact that she fancies Hawkins.

    Has become a reasonable footballer, scored the winning goal after the siren one game.

    As for AFL I'm a Perth boy born and bred, I'll take my mighty West Coast Eagles to the grave with me.
