8 out of 18 teams are based in Melbourne and one is based in Geelong(About 75km from Melbourne) Everything when it comes to footy is generic because of how crowded the market is..
This kinda leads into another question I had. Is there any Saints focused media? Like over here all the teams will have local radio that has game broadcasts and post game call in shows and what not, and of course local papers will report on the local team. I'm just not sure if the same would be true of the AFL with so many teams based in the Melbourne Metro area.
Basically Melbourne runs off football and as the great Mike Brady once sang "football' such a part of this whole town"
Radio wise 3AW, Triple M, SEN, ABC and KRock in Geelong all broadcast the football.
SEN is only the pure sports radio station and does pre and post game talkback.
Perhaps the most famous call from SEN is Richmond supporter Mario from Doncaster who famously microwaved his membership:
