True - form Sydney anyway - where I think the divide of RL and RU has continued along such lines and AFL has stepped into much of RU area and support. Of course, in traditional Aussie Rules states, for the most part, there has been no such divide - it is aussie rules or nothing - even if you follow soccer you'd still have an AFL team.
Sydney is kind of next level.. you can draw on a map of where each code is most popular per district :lol:

Union being in dier straits has actually effected Rugby League and Helped AFL.

Yes, agree. Rather than "lower" themselves to RL they have moved across to AFL as it likely aligns more to their way of life so to speak in sydney.

Clueless Fred is at it again!! He follows a sport that has systemic generational racism. A sport where the exec's are bonking the junior staff at headquarters. A sport that that unleashes anti sematic insults on a 17 year of kid. A sport that runs one of it's greatest Aboriginal players outta the game.......cause he was black. A sport where they chase the richest, whitest kids, from the most expensive schools in the land to play the ugly mess.

Yet he has the temerity to bag RL. If the rich, whitey, private school boyos in Sydney want to play Fumbleball I say good riddance to the pissant, ignorant flogs. The game suits them. And they suit the game. A match made in heaven. Flogs playing a flogs game!!!!!

Well done Fred. You've done it again ya dill!!!!!!!!

I'm not so sure about that, I see a lot of soccer fans with no interest in AFL. Especially first generation Australians from places like South America, Europe & The Middle East.
