how bout you fuck off

RL fans aren't the clowns claiming to be followers of our national sport are they ?
unlike many fumblers who have the audacity & arrogance to think theirs is lol

what these delusional half wits fail to see is my point here

would the EPL be on a secondary channel in London
the NFL or baseball ... in New York

no , never
they are true national sports

unlike the fumbles & bumbles
popular in only half of our nation

national sport ?

Peter Rabbit says no :(/ :(/ :(/ :(/ :(/ :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Dave, can you find a Thursday or Friday night game where the NRL in Melbourne, Adelaide or Perth has rated higher than the AFL in Sydney or Brisbane when a home team was not playing :wave:

Wouldn’t it be our national sport based on 1. It’s Australia’s own game and 2. It’s played nationally right across the national in large numbers like soccer but unlike Rl or RU. I think those two factors combined make it nationa and ours. I ageee he should have said Australian Rules and not AFL

Anyway.. opinions are like aresholes... everyone has one.

The funny part LOL, is you people actually think that phrase means something . Rugby League controls much of the East Coast which where everything happens. An our outlook internationally is looking very bright (ie. people who live on the other side of the water. And I'm not talking about the Murray River). Even so we are still the most popular sport in the country. With millions of viewers, sell out audiences for Perth and similar Melbourne & Adelaide.


Australia's number 1 sport RUGBY LEAGUE. Preferred by more Australians than any other :cheers:

No, RL doesnt "control" the east coast. It may be more popular in NSW and QLD but seriously bombs out in Victoria. AFL is far far more popular in NSW and QLD than NRL in Vic going by TV ratings. Crowds even suggest the difference is even bigger.

The NRL may sellout the odd exhibition game in AFL states but the AFL gets regular sellouts and large crowds in all states bar Tasmania. The AFL also rate higher in QLD and NSW during the regular season than NRL in AFL states

meaning neither code has made any real inroads into the others traditional strongholds ... you can't be a national sport if you're only popular in half of that country

so says Peter Rabbit :cool:
