Re: Looking forward sunny days at Brookie. No wonder Melbourne people are always jealous of Sydney.

Sounds like the Gold coast has come of age, plenty of fine cafe options. Fifteen to twenty years ago the big cities had a monopoly on quality hip cafes, not anymore.

Re: HISTORY KANGAROOS V ALL BLACKS

Hybrid games can work well just look at the international rules match between Ireland and Australia, certainly not for everyone, but still has its fans.
All Blacks vs Kangaroos is brave innovative concept that might work, won't know until it happens.

Re: My Kinda Man !

The Sun's have become a development and training nursery for Richmond premiere ship players under McLachlans incompetent administration. How can he stand by and watch them flounder and allow incessant poaching to rip the best players from this expansion club that is trying hard to win new supporters...

Re: Looking forward sunny days at Brookie. No wonder Melbourne people are always jealous of Sydney.

Plenty of AFL on television, real enough for me.
The footy vaults are open I am enjoying some of the great games from the past that have been broadcast and I admit to prefering the cleaner more open styles of play from the past than the excessive flooding and congestion that prevales today.

Re: Looking forward sunny days at Brookie. No wonder Melbourne people are always jealous of Sydney.

I would much rather live in Melbourne. Visit an art gallery in the morning Dine at a great cafe for lunch. Cruise along the freeway towards a real surf beach..... Bells, more than a few feet higher. Bet you cannot do that in Sydney , NFLwelaughat. Oh but you can play in the tiny ripples at Coogee et...

Re: The AFL bogans are at it again!!!!!

Nice try

But the title of this thread just does not stack up !
Bogan is a term that is exclusively used to describe NRL fans.

Re: Toronto Wolfpack

Wolfpack appeal to a small insignificant niche market of buffoon English expats who refuse to embrace the local sports such as ice hockey and gridiron. Rugby league does not even register with the average sane Canadian citizen.and why would it when there are more exciting sports to follow. Much grea...
