    Australian Rules Football

    Currently watching the Sydney Swans, it is half time and the Swans are massively ahead and on a really strong run where they have won 8 of their last 9 games. It will never ever replace watching City for someone like me, but it's really growing on me. The top flight has 18 teams, and 10 of them are from Melbourne, with the other 8 made up of 2 from Sydney, the Perth area, the Brisbane area and the Adelaide area respectively. The Adelaide Crows are currently top of the league. Very family friendly and no problems having beer in your seat in the ground. A great day out is to be had watching this stuff

    I used to watch Aussie rules on the tv when I was younger and loved it - the Essendon Bombers were my team as they played in red and black.

    Ditto, although my team were St Kilda, because their kit was quite ECFC as well.
