    Holeeeeee crap we suck. This is really hard to watch.

    Clearly you didn't read my entire post. I am and will always be a Suns fan.

    AFL Alienation

    In Canada, I find that most people leave the town they grew up in. I certainly did and, have no intention of going back. Different culture, I suppose.

    Seattle loves the NBA. I reckon they would sell out.

    If there was some benefit to doing so, I would have. Being overseas, buying an AFL Global TV package and Suns gear from the club was a better investment.

    That makes it difficult to support a club, I suppose. Perhaps Gold Coast was a more calculated risk with a more concentrated and larger population. The idea was to expand the game to new markets...

    That suggests to me that they aren't as passionate about footy as many believe. if my city didn't have a club and the AFL was coming to town, I would definitely be there if I was a fan. People show their passion with their wallets.

    Yes, the Suns have made some bad decisions but, the AFL does let players dictate where they would like to play. That tilts the league in Victoria's favor. They need to adjust how trades are handled and provide the clubs with more control.

    Agreed. Are you suggesting I am leaving the Suns as a fan? No, that is not correct - I am still a Suns fan, I just won't be as active as previously. The Suns are my team.

    I rephrased that. He still did ask to leave, though.

    I felt it best to choose a new club as I was a new fan. It was the Suns or Giants and I went with the Suns.

    Why do they not fill the stadium when the Hawks play in Tasmania? Too small of a population or, is the passion for football not as much as we think?

    AFL Alienation

    Hello all. I really discovered the game of Australian football back in 2013 and have experienced six full seasons of the AFL. It's hard to believe, 6 years of staying up late here in Canada to watch my club - the Gold Coast Suns. Some of you may have spent five minutes to read my post back...

    Autopsy Suns vs Pies, Sat 30th June @ Metricon

    I expect to lose this one by about 10 goals. In fact, when I look at the ladder and see us 15th, it shocks me that we are not lower. It has been ugly. Love my club but, it has become hard to watch. I would love to see a win ( our first win vs Collingwood a few years back was epic) but, it...

    Autopsy SUNS V Geelong.

    Weller...I call him the invisible man. I expected a lot more from him. It’s getting tough to justify the late nights here in Canada. I will always be a Suns fan but it seems I put in more effort than many of the players some weeks.
