How seriously do you take football?

Won't go watch my team play so I can switch channels in between goals and breaks to watch the other game on Fox Footy.

Yeah. Not that serious.

Enjoy talking about footy and watching footy very much.

In terms of seriousness, when I was young a loss would make the weekend/Monday at school disappointing compared to the high you got after a win.

I've found since becoming an adult I don't get the thrill after a win but couldn't care less after a loss. I guess that's perspective in life.

Not so seriously any more. Used to yell and scream my lungs out during games but just dont care so much. Nothing to do with the state of the game or any bs like that. More to do with feeling like ive seen the best Eagles teams ever during the 90's and 00's. Similar to cricket. After experiencing a golden era of Warne, Gilchrist, McGrath, Ponting, Waugh, Clarke, Hayden, Langer, Lee, etc its hard to get excited about the next batch coming through when you know you've probably seen the best Australian cricket team in your lifetime retire.

Im not sure if the Eagles will ever be able to beat the 90's of Matera, Kemp, Sumich, Heady, Worsfold, Jackovich or the 00's of Cousins, Judd, Kerr, Cox, Glass, Waters, Embley, Wirrpanda, Chick. I miss the old days :(
LOL!!!!!


Well a premiership wasn't bad now was it!

I do but do the AFL? I mean with a player climbing the post while a guy setting up to take a shot , with international sports followers wondering what the hell is going, they must think it,s a tactic. They,ed be asking , why doesn,t he have step ladder?

I thoroughly love AFL football. It is my favourite thing in life (after my family) I do not follow a team and have always followed players, since 2007 it has been Gary Ablett junior. In the past; Robert Harvey, James Hird, Gary Ablett Senior, Malcolm Blight and Robbie Flower. I genuinely do not care who wins the game, would rather see a great player than a team performance. I love football but do not take it seriously at all, it is just a game.

I used to, back in the days when it was an actual sport. Now I just treat it as the joke it has become.
It's WWE now. Should be AFE instead as they've demonstrated many times, they'll put money ahead of integrity.
