Are you sure you'd lose that membership status? I'd check that out, doesn't seem fair that you just get treated like a first year Collingwood member every year, just because you want the exceptional perks of being an AFL member. Walk up entry to 40 matches a year is a very sweet thing.

Apparently, AFL members have no special privileges at interstate games, which I find disappointing. I really do wanna go to a few interstate matches, and really need to get myself along to Football Park before they don't use that impressive Waverley-esque looking stadium anymore.
Awesomeness

Possibly. I'm thinking if I have club support it might restart and then each year I am an AFL member with Collingwood support the status stays...I'll definitely be checking that out. Still tossing up to go AFL Membership or HD Pay-TV. Would like to have both I think But 40 games are year is just awesome.

I think some games you can. I saw a few posts on bigfooty about AFL members buying tickets to a game at Subi. The thread was from 2010 though, I believe.

I was just looking at Wikipedia's list of overseas-born AFL players, and I must admit I'm surprised how few Kiwis have played in the AFL. I suppose a lot of Kiwi immigrants go to Sydney and southeast Queensland, which means that in general they keep playing one of the rugby codes.

I reckon Aussie Rules has a good long-term shot in New Zealand if the AFL is serious about promoting it, though. New Zealanders love free-flowing rugby (and don't take kindly to the slower style of play of Northern Hemisphere teams), so that puts something as fast-paced as Aussie Rules in good stead, and there are a shitload of cricket fields around the country on which it can be played.

The main problem, as with everything, is the small population. But then Melbourne has the same population as New Zealand, and across the AFL, NRL, Super 14, and the A-League, it supports heaps more professional teams than New Zealand does. So it's possible.

And hah, I just discovered that I went to the same primary school on the Gold Coast as Nick Riewoldt did. I only just missed him too - he would've been four years above me, but I was only there for 2.5 years.

I think that's the closest I've got to anybody famous coming from any school I went to!

My high school is famous for the Hilltop Hoods.

Ben Rutten and Adam Cooney also went there, however.

I heard that a few years ago (before I was at the school), the students had a petition to bring them back to perform at the school.
