    Australian Rules Football - AFL - 2019

    Anyone else enjoy Aussie rules; perhaps some Hibees who now live out there? I'm not into American sports, such as NFL and baseball, but I've really gotten into Aussie rules in the past couple of seasons and have adopted St Kilda (perennial underachievers with one title in their history) as my team . Tremendous sport which demands skill, fitness and courage.

    New season kicks off in a couple of weeks time - BT Sport has live games

    Looks like I'm the only Aussie Rules fan on .net . Grand Final next Saturday, live on BT, Richmond v Great Western Sydney Giants. It's the Giants' first Grand Final; they will be big underdogs, but I hope they do it.

    I enjoy it. And used to follow it weekly back in the day (30 years ago, jeez) when it was first in Channel 4.
    Obviously Hawthorn were the team for me - HFC all the way.

    I rarely catch it these days, sadly.

    Though now that I think of it I'd STILL say it's my second favourite sport behind the real HFC.
    Go Hawks!

    I posted on the other thread! Iíve seen Richmond live, playing against Collingwood. I was supporting Collingwood but I think they are maybe like the Rankgers of AFL. Also had a liking for West Coast Eagles.

    I have BT so might make more of an effort to catch games in the future.
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    I watch it every week mate - the Collingwood v GWS semi was a cracker.

    Itís a pity BT scrapped the highlights show this season as Iíve not got the time to watch 3 or 4 live games every weekend but I make sure I watch the finals in full - amazing games.

    Iíve not got a team as such - I just enjoy watching.

    Sorry I missed this post!

    Iím a West Coast Eagles fan. Was at two games in May and was lucky enough to see Liam Ryanís mark of the year right in front of me.

    Was disappointed how we went out but it was a fun season to get into the sport (although obviously I look like a glory hunter after last year... both my sisters live in Perth though.)

    Iím actually moving to Brisbane in 3 weeks so will be able to enjoy next season at the Gabba... Iíll still be an Eagles fan though.

    Wow, bon voyage, mate. Why are you also making the move? Brisbane to Perth is only 3000 miles

    I know right! An opportunity came up with work so I thought I should take the chance to live down there for a few years! Plus I suppose a 5 hour flight to see the rest of the family is more manageable than the 17 hour flight just now!

    Great, that will be some adventure. The weather will be a bit nicer in Queensland!

    Anyone setting the alarm for the final?

    Iím just going to record it and watch it later in the afternoon or maybe even on Sunday. Fairly easy to avoid the score.

    I better go to sleep now actually!

    I got up in the middle of the night to watch it; certainly the most one-sided Grand Final I've watched. I felt sorry for GWS; they were beaten early into the second quarter, then it just kept getting worse. A shame the biggest game of the season wasn't competitive.
