oddly enough, I used to sit down and watch AFL here in the states growing up ... I think the old HSE station out of Houston used to carry it, then Fox sports did for a while.

Sorry about posting in a long dead thread, but COLLINGWOOD JUST WON THE PREMIERSHIP CUP FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE.

Estimated time until I stop dancing: 2 hours.
Estimated time until I stop grinning: 2 weeks.
Estimated time until I stop rubbing it in the faces of everybody else in Australia: Until we win again next year  ;D

We'll hopefully change that Happiness in to soul crushing angst on ANZAC day.

Only if Hirdy recontracts himself as player-coach.

For those who don't know who Collingwood is, they're the team that everyone in Australia hates apart from their own supporters.

One of the first things I learned when I moved to Oz. Damn Pies...

We're also the biggest team, richest team, and most historically successful (depending on which stats you look at). I suppose you could say we are the Yankees of the AFL world. And the other teams should be loving us up, particulary those of them with financial troubles - the money they get each season from Collingwood supporters turning up to their home matches against us represent a significant boost to their income.
