    Well that explains why I love it so!! I'm from North Carolina! And those are the first two territories I'd visit in Australia.

    At first I thought you meant the British Lions. I hate them with a fucking passion. Stupid Lions.

    OK, here's a quick summary. There are 16 AFL teams, most of which are based in Melbourne. The others are scattered interstate and are historically former Melbourne teams who went broke!

    Interstate teams:
    Brisbane (Lions)
    West Coast (Eagles)
    Fremantle (Dockers)
    Adelaide (Crows)
    Port Adelaide (Power)
    Sydney (Swans)

    Melbourne teams:
    Carlton (Blues)
    Essendon (Bombers)
    Collingwood (Magpies)
    St Kilda (Saints)
    Geelong (Cats)
    Hawthorne (Hawks)
    Richmond (Tigers)
    Western (Bulldogs) aka Footscray
    Melbourne (Demons)
    North Melbourne (Kangaroos)

    Pick a team and then we can educate you. Just don't pick fucking Collingwood! LOL

    OH FUCK YES!!!! my team won again!! im excited about footy again, essendon has beaten two sides that both did great last year and two weeks in a row. it could just be luck but we'll just have to wait and see.

    and yes afl=football, we call american football gridiron and english football soccer. i dont even know why you people call rugby or gridiron "football", you use your foot about 3 times a game...wtf

    btw about nsw and queensland, they are probably the better states for a holiday because of weather amongst other things but melbourne is by far the most cultured city with the best nightlife and surburban areas, it just doesnt have many proper tourist attractions like say the great barrier reef in queensland. so queensland is the best for holidays, melbourne is the best to live in. sydney is an overpopulated piece of shit city

    Oh oh oh let's think. Who's broke - not Carlton?!?! The wogs will go crazy. Kangaroos ? So Sydney gets North Melbourne as well as South??? What about the rumour that the Saints will end up in Hobart?

    Edit: Important Disclaimer to the PC Brigade. In the context of Australia/Melbourne/footy the term 'wog' is one of endearment and refers to our Italian/Greek community. There is NO other connotation OK?

    I tell you what A*O......not a bad guess....the removalists are waiting in the wings.....and the scouts are scouting big time.....you can rule Carrara oval and Canberra right out, Surfers is still trying to compete but according to Demetriou....(of fthe record)....there is a MASSIVE announcement coming soon.....Just to cover my own arse though, there could be a dark horse in the race that could make this redundant.........but $$ wise.....at the moment......its Sydney all the way

    If our national symbol is hopping up to NSW I don't think too many people are going to be surprised?? But I won't breathe a word.
