    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...

    Help a Canadian out....

    Hey guys! Could someone send me a copy of this week's AFL Record with the Gaz 300th cover on it? I can't get it here in Canada but, if someone could send me a copy, I'll gladly pay you for it! PM me if you can!

    Naive Question

    hello folks. Looking forward to the Grand Final today! I have been a fan of this great game for 4 years and there is something I have always wondered: what is the bump on the back neck/shoulder area of the jumpers? Thank you in advance!

    2nd Annual AFL Weekend

    Hello all, I am in my second season as an AFL fan and, I absolutely love the sport. It provides the kind of action and excitement that the modern National Hockey League fails to deliver on so many nights to this Canadian hockey fan. I just completed my 2nd annual "AFL Weekend" where I watch...

    A few questions about this great game....

    Hello folks, a few of you may remember me from last season - the newbie Suns fan from Canada asking a lot of newbie-type questions. Last year, I asked many of them in the Introductions board but, now that I have been here nearly a full year, it doesn't really seem right putting my latest...

    Sydney...

    Hello folks, I live in Canada and am a Suns fan but, I wanted to make a comment here. I was watching some of the Major League Baseball coverage from the SCG over the last couple of days and they showed a lot of shots of the city. I have to say Sydney is one of the most beautiful cities in the...

    New Rule????

    Hello gentlemen, I am very happy that the new AFL season is upon us but, I am confused. Last year was my first season following the AFL and I understand that goals and behinds make up a team's score. What is the new column - it appears that there is a 9 point item. What is this? Is it a new...

    Photos?

    Hi guys, I live in Canada and, as you can imagine, you cannot purchase AFL merchandise anywhere in this country. I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction. I am looking for a Gary Ablett Jr. 8x10 photo in his red Guernsey or a Suns team photo - at a reasonable cost. eBay...
