i didnt mean that everyone in melbourne hates rugby, but lots of people love AFL in melbourne and since NRL and AFL are kinda rival codes (execpt the NRL seems to have given up on penetrating victoria to a great extent, while the AFL goes after NSW and QLD) you know.

I don't think the NRL have given up on melbourne. there is talking on international tri nations games at the end of the year being played there and another state of origin in 2 years

they certainly arnt going after victoria the way the AFL is going after NSW and QLD, besides having the 3rd origin match in melbourne is far more fair than having it in sydney or brisbane, neutural territory--but i spose the NRL has realised they will never be able to beat AFL support in Victoria, the other thing ive noticed about NRL is that the average crowd is like 16,000 or so, yet AFL matches average 25-30,000 attendance

Isn't it great when there's mutual dislike for Australian sporting teams? The Brits hate them, the New Zealanders hate them, the South Africans hate them...
You all hate us because we are just SO DAMN GOOD!!!!!

AFL just shits all over rugby league. God, I cant stand league. I'm going to have a stroke if I keep writing. Best thing about Vic is their brilliant sport. Thank GOD at least one state knows how to invent a decent game.

England Vs Argentina in football is pretty intense.

I've never been happier or more relieved after a football match than when england beat argentina 1-0 in the 2002 world cup
