Okay here it is. A place for us Aussies and others who have seen the light, to discuss the greatest game on earth. I agree with CureTheSane about how inappropriate the opening video to the "Pat McAfee gets it" thread was, so I'll start this thread with something more fitting. I'm looking forward to posting many great Footy videos here. Go Pies!

Hey mate, not sure I understand. You want to discuss the NRL? In an AFL thread? I'm confused.

We suck on the hearts of St. Kilda supporters. One of the only teams I haven't seen win a premiership in my lifetime. 😊

The NRL. Basically, hold a football and run as fast as you can into a brick wall. Yeah, huge skill levels involved in that.  😆

The Gee is uneven, that would bounce would fall straight in Milne's hands, GOAAAAAAAL he would kicked.

I would never forgiven  Shaw that smoother he done on the Roo in goal square

Don't worry mate. Unfortunately, when it comes to Grand Final heartbreak over the years. I think we have you beat.

Meh. The season is a shambles. I've almost lost interest.

Most of my Collingwood friends feel the same way. :)

Guarantee if you win the flag, it will be 'a hard fought win in a harder than usual season'

Hard to watch as a Swans fan.
Solace in that we had such an inexperienced team out there who were in it all game.

I need to make more of an effort with this topic. I was reminded over the weekend of this amazing one man effort during the 2005 AFL Finals. The Swans would go on to win the Grand Final (Superbowl) on the back of this performance. 

I'm sure CTS will appreciate this one.

Gee, would Collingwood love have him back in black/white.

The season starts now.

I was watching as it happened.
Amazing, come from behind.
Still don't know how we got there, I still get nervous watching replays.
I was at the 2005 GF and it was amazing.

Glad we lost on the weekend.

Last two rounds we lost to two top 4 teams by narrow margins, with quite a few injuries.
Our best forward (Franklin) , our best backman )Rampe), our best ruckman(Naismith), and our best mid-forward (Heeney) among others.

The loss on the weekend means we finished 3rd bottom instead of 5th bottom, which is great when draft season comes along.
We will get the 4th best player in the draft, then two academy picks where we match the other clubs selections.
So basically 3 first round picks for the price of one :)
Look out next season.

Also talk of Moore or Degoey coming to the Swans, that would be fun Coliingwood supporters. :)

I thought i'd edit this original post and include an AFL tutorial video. Remember, it's Aussie Rules, not Rugby.

These aren't the greatest Long Bomb goals, as the title suggests. These are all relatively recent, but you get the idea.

BTW, when the commentators refer to distance, such as 50, 65, 70, they're talking metres, not yards.

    • I hate threads like this. My expectations for this are so high they will certainly drop when I hear it. Then afetr more listens it will surge I;m sure, but there is no way it can come close to what i am expecting lol
    • Album out now... this ROCKS!!!                         https://gbdeclaration.org/
    • AWESOME!!! Song...   https://gbdeclaration.org/
    • going to play today at some point. expecting a cheesefest but in a good way 
    • I've never seen that before on Spotify - says full album available soon. it's not clear if they've held in back or there's been an error uploading it 
    • From what I understand, Pete and Steve are extremely pissed at Mark "Gus" Scott. https://www.madrock1025.com/trixter-members-go-public-with-feud/ In an argument that’s gone uncomfortably public, Trixter drummer Mark “Gus” Scott has fired back at his disgruntled bandmates, claiming he only wants what’s best for the group. The feud began when Steve Brown and P.J. Farley told interviewers Scott was on “the sh*t list beyond belief,” comparing him to disobedient dog. Now, in a new interview, Scott says the band’s problems go well beyond just one dissenting member. “I don’t know if the ‘bad dog’ is the best analogy and the best manner in which to visualize what’s happened with Trixter,” he says. “I think there’s been different ideologies within the band for a very, very long time. We’ve been together over 30 years. So I think there’s always been — I don’t wanna say a ‘rift,’ but more recently, if there was a rift, it was certainly becoming more and more exponentially grown.” While not naming names, Scott says his issues are with the band’s “leadership,” adding he refuses to be “led by ignorance.” Ouch. How long will it be before Trixter either calls it quits or parts ways with Scott? Have the members of Trixter been together too long?
    • What's the story there? I recall a couple videos between the two "new" albums that portrayed them all as good buddies. 
    • A magnificent hidden gem from Ted Poley.    
    • Ok, so they did shoot a video for "Breakdown." I fucking love this song!!
