    ANZAC Day Hawks vs Carlton

    So I hardly watch tv live... Today... for some reason... decided to watch Melbourne 7. Realised an afl game was about to start... the anthem and pre-game stuff was quite moving.. Then the game started... I had no clue about the rules and the oval shape of the pitch and the camera angles didnt help woth my confusion... Zoned out every now and then during chores... but i caught the last 12 minutes... by gum it was a frantic game... I still had no clue... but it was exciting!!! What a sport... Now i need to learn its rules
  2. I really hope Parleys post this morning wasn't an omen for the Pies. We did it last year so hopefully we can do it again this year. Come on let's sing along:wink: [YOUTUBE]78HOOmEIYo[/YOUTUBE]
  3. :idea: Hi all is anybody thinking about watching the AFL Final in a pub somewhere? My wife (allieinoz) & I were thinking of going to Sanctuary lakes Golf club to watch it but if there's a few going elsewhere would be interested in tagging along? Let us know guys please Steve
  4. [WRAP]http://i1012.photobucket.com/albums/af245/rob_williams_photo/afl.gif[/WRAP]One of the members has suggested we should have a footy tipping competition, which I thought was a good idea, so I've created AFL & NRL footy tipping competitions for PIO members at oztips.com Once you've registered an account at oztips.com, join either or both of the following competitions: Comp Name: PomsInOz AFL 2010 footy tipping comp Comp Number: 223522 Comp Password: (PM me for password) Comp Name: PomsInOz NRL 2010 footy tipping comp Comp Number: 223524 Comp Password: (PM me for password) [WRAP]http://i1012.photobucket.com/albums/af245/rob_williams_photo/nrl.jpg[/WRAP] They're free to enter and we'll award prizes of $300 to the winners of each competition at the end of the season. There may also be an additional prize for the winners, but we're still working on that at the moment.

    footie (afl not soccer)

    Does anyone go to the footie, I've picked me side - Richmond (got to love an underdog). From what I can see they play their home games at MCG, does anyone know the score with matches - can you just turn up and pay at the turnstile or do you have to buy tickets beforehand or do you have to 'join the club' . Also is it an appropriate place to take young 'uns, as my boy is nearly 5 and I've been dying to take him to sporting events for ages.

    AFL - who wins the flag in 2009 ?

    Iam on a roll , i tipped HAWTHORN from way out last year,when everyone thought Geelong were nailed on . This year my instincts tell me COLLINGWOOD .........( a bit of "mystic meg ")......usually my tipping is suspect to say the least

    AFL - whos your team ?

    To me its the greatest game in the world , loved it when i was over there in oz, and still follow it now. Played in a few pre season friendlies when i was over there ( younger and fitter ). Pommie soccer players tend to do well, if they can take the physical side. Watched the Sydney v st kilda game recently.....brilliant By the way i follow our football , yes i go down the match. Most of the players are bone idle , overpaid drama queens . GO THE BOMBERS !!!!!!!!

    Any Poms following AFL

    I am! My girlfriend's a mad Carlton fan (who look awesome this year by the way) so i've been roped into following them. Not sure what to make of the 'Footy' in general though, i'm not 100% on all the rules and there doesn't seem to be any fouls. And is it just me or does it look really easy to score a 6-pointer? Also; anyone else think The Footy Show is terrible, it's so unprofessional (maybe that's the point) and it goes on foreeeeeeever.

    2009 AFL Footy Tipping

    Ok sorry its late but the footy tipping Comp will start from tomorrow night. It will again be Sponsored By Andy Thomas but more on that soon as my people are still negotiating with his people. Prizes won't be huge or life changing but its fun to take part. This year we are using the Herald sun footy tipping so if anyone does stand out with there tipping they have a chance of winning the $10,000 prize over the whole site. Please go to AFL Tipping - Herald Sun SuperTipping and register. Make sure you tick the box saying you want to join an existing league, it will ask for the name of the league, this is 632447. Take 5 mins to join up & enjoy the fun over the season whether your in UK or Melbourne. Good luck all.

    AFL v Soccer

    Hi, Now this isn't going to be a question about the sport itself but about the fans. In light of another big english final tonight in Russia.....were no doubt there will be some trouble despite the strict russians........ I was wondering if AFL fans behave in the same way as english soccer fans do when then their side doens't win. Im referring to the riots after the FA Cup...does this type of thing go on in oz???? Im just interested to know, its not going to change my mind about moving to oz but was just wondering..... Thanks, Mandisfam
