I mean, I'm from Brisbane for starters. Just glossing over the fact that the AFL's season opener is going to draw 5x the attendance of the NRL season opener?
seig heil fumbler..
you or your mo.ng parents moved there from the racistball states at some point,
the only people on the planet who give a rats arse about fumbling missing or throwing bananas at coloured people have their origins down there
Hey "Truth"bomber, sorry for the late reply. Life and stuff
And for starters, I was born in Toowoomba, lived far out in the Western Downs for most of my youth, and currently reside in the Northern Brisbane suburbs. The old man is originally from the Sunny Coast and my mother isn't from Australia to begin with. I support the Cowboys too, general preference is just Aussie Rules. And living in all those different places, IN QUEENSLAND, I've come to find most AFL followers are pretty tolerant of other sports because they don't care about the other codes or follow them with a passing interest.
Rugby League diehards such as yourself though, can't fathom that Aussie Rules presence is growing in Queensland. The Lions and Suns have put a ton of work into grassroots, and it helps that both have become competitive on the field in the last few years. Not to mention their female counterparts leading the way and helping girls' participation levels explode in the South East.
I'm not stupid and I know QLD will probably forever be a predominantly League state for my time on the planet, heck I enjoy State of Origin as much as the next Queenslander, but to ignore the AFL's evergrowing foothold in the state is pretty ignorant.
And a little something extra to ya constant "racistball" comments, it's laughable to say the least. As shitty as it is, every code has them and it didn't take long for fans to get booted from a Rugby League game for, surprise surprise, racist comments.
