    Shame,
    (Slightly harshly), beaten by France in the WC,
    Beaten by the Irish in the egg chasing, and looking good for England against them in the cricket,

    I'm sure there's a few tinnies being sunk in misery over there at the moment....
    Played really well against France and unlucky to lose. No dramas over here.

      How the **** would you know? AFL is the #1 sport in the nation. It dominates the sports media during the winter season.
      Unless a lot has changed in the last 10 years that's only true in Victoria. NSW and QLD go more Rugby League and (to a lesser extent) Union, ahead of the AFL. There's a good reason why the majority of the teams are Vic teams in the AFL.

      Victoria 10 teams. And then 2 each in NSW, QLD, SA, and WA. And some of those non Vic teams were historically Vic teams (e.g. the South Melbourne Swans -> Sydney Swans).

      It's AFL season. Between that and obviously the world cup the other two sports are hardly spoken of in this state.
      Because of the results...

      This. Today's Rugby Union was played in Melbourne in front of 30,000 people but no one in Victoria will be talking about it
      It's probably nice to be Olympic champion. Like winning Gent-Wevelgem or something.

      And South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.

      Australian Rules is huge in those States and Territories.

      No, because the most popular sport is AFL. The interest in Rugby Union is very minimal in the AFL states.

      Not in Footy season.

      I don't think you realise the blanket coverage and attention the AFL gets in all forms of media.
