Here's one for any aussies on the board who follow soccer.
The thrill of an A-league match is way better than seeing the rugby league,
especially when you're right behind Dwight Yorke at the game.
Any Fans?

Rugby League shits on the A-League. Hell, I even prefer AFL over it. I was at Telstra Stadium last Friday Night watching the Tigers cane the Dragons and it was fucking awesome. Australian soccer is dogshit, except of course for the excellent world cup qualifier. That was good.

You've just betrayed your country. I hereby demand that you cease and desist from imbibing tea in any form other than iced, and hand over all your crumpets to an appropriate authority.

Simply so people don't get it mixed up. I find if you say "football" in any company other than 100% English you get confused looks.

Dave... not quite - in fact, as far as I know, only Americans use 'soccer'. frenchies invented that sport and they call it 'football'.

So do the Dutch. Except it's a translation to our own language. Funny enough it's pronounced exactly the same. Most of the time I refuse to use the word 'soccer'.

Good for you! I usually do too. If I get those confused looks that Dave mentioned, I simply explain that I am referring to REAL football, not the incredibly boring crap they play in the US and laughably call football.

KILL YOURESLF. go play soccer you pussyThis is an incredibly stupid comment because it is quite a known fact that soccer is the No.1 sport played by youngsters in Australia. I used to play soccer, and many people I know played it too. You don't even have to like it much, it's just a very easy sport to get into playing.

Dude I totally agree.
Ok, so most people like league here, but you cant say that Australian soccer hasn't drastically improved over the last couple of years. Sydney FC are playing Juventus after the World Cup, so that must mean something good.

However, I just prefer League, and I think overall most Australians would prefer to go to a League or AFL game than to an A-League match.
