Old news but it was deemed official in the last week. Has beem some talk about it, mostly from AFL types spitting the dummy thinking we were "stealing" their name. can only say one thing to them-----> :finger:
Well they're running scared all over the place. Last week the chairman of the West Australian Football Commission was speaking regarding the Super 14's and the A-League and how they may impact on AFL. He just spat some bullshit which all wasn't true, one such comment was that Rugby and Football were trying to steal AFL juniors.
At the end of the day, globalisation is competing with AFL. With the advent of cable/satellite TV more and more people are exposed to both football and rugby and subsequent generations will consequently take up these games rather than Aussie Rules. It'll take time though.
