Lol your jealousy is laughable
We are international .
Not very big at all internationally ..no one claims that .
Yet compared to afl internationally we are in different universes.
Over 100 years of test history between Aust ...England & Nz ( you know Aust old enemies in many sports) says your rants are the hysterics of a jealous fool
RL internationally has nothing to do with RU ..yet that's your standard rant .
laughable
We, by far the majority of Australian Rules fans, don’t care our code is not international, don’t even think about it, just the name, Australian Rules should give you some idea...you Chuckball people keep bringing up 2 things consistently, SOO and international games, because that is all you’ve got, Chuckball domestic comps are crap, NRL is the best of a bad lot and still you lose a lot of your best players to other comps. When your major broadcaster says teams need to go....join the dots...

AFL fans don't care because they accept AFL can't grow outside Australia. They know it is not an internationally marketable sport like Soccer, League, Union etc..

No other nation will ever take seriously a game with 6 goals and played on a cricket field.

Again.... we don’t care. You care, I get that, but maybe that is something you should work out as to why. Is Aussies love our footy ... our Australian Rules Footy .... our nations very own game.

Let's be honest. You can't call AFL a real sport when they play on another sports field.
Real footy does not get played on a cricket ground.

Real football does not give you a point when you miss.

There needs to be so many adjustments before AFL can be recognised as an actual sport.

Is there any game in the world where the ball gets thrown in backwards by a ref when it goes out? :lol:

Which bright spark thought that would be a good idea? :mrgreen: =D

Let’s be honest, yes Australian Rules Football is a real code of football, the first to be codified in fact.
And kicking the ball is a major part of the game.
You must be running out of things to post.
You have used this theme before.
Just because you keep saying it doesn’t make it true....or rational.

I use the theme again because there is still no evidence that AFL is a real football code.

You play on a cricket ground. That's like adding goals on a baseball ground and saying yep we are a new sport.

And no other country recognises AFL as a real football code. Hence the reason AFL has nothing professional outside Australia.

Gridiron is played professionally throughout Canada and USA with their own grounds. Hence being a real football code.

Sorry, but AFL is not a propper sport.
No real sporting ground, uses a cricket field.
Points when you miss a goal.
Allowed to drop the ball as much as you like.

All these things are what makes AFL lose recognition a real sporting code.
