Supported league since I was 3 however I follow most sports.
I follow a lot of sports as well (enjoy watching soccer, tennis, cricket, baseball and basketball for example) but for all sports, even if I don’t personally like the aesthetics of them, I can at least appreciate them from an athletic or skill perspective. That is except AFL.
Seriously that game is analogous to when schools give out awards to those at the bottom of the class so they don’t feel left out. It’s the merit or participation award of world sport.
Anyway, besides giving me an opportunity to have a go at fumbleball, do you understand the irony of supporting the AFL and the Swans, in light of your arguments about RL?
