The Anti-Football League


AFL (Australian Football League) and NRL (National Rugby League) here in Australia are the lamest excuses for sport I have ever witnessed. If I wanted to watch barbaric testosterone overcharged jocks in tiny shorts lunging at each other and groping I'll watch wrestling thanks. And its all anyone can talk about here!

Fortunately I'm not alone:

The Anti-Football League is an Australian organisation that pokes fun at the obsession with Australian rules football. It was founded by Melbourne journalist Keith Dunstan in 1967.

The movement still has a strong band of loyal sympathisers and supporters, and since June 2006, a website. The chief qualification for membership is not an active dislike but a disinterest in football, a desire to spend one’s time and conversation on other things.
