    Also the Crushers and the Reds while you're at it.

    Insane that the league hasn't expanded outside of its heartland this century. Say what you want about the two sports but the AFL administration is miles ahead of the NRLs.

    The Rams, Reds, Chargers et al were all catastrophic failures, and the Storm & Warriors aren't much better. The reason why the Rugby League infection hasn't spread this century is because it can't. It has no-where left to go. Rugby League is a pleb sport if there ever was one. Pushed towards people who can't understand Union & think that it's "boring". Whilst AFL is the most popular sport in Australia, & Union is the most popular sport in NZ & RSA, Rugby League is the most popular sport NOWHERE.

    It's been a bit of a shitshow from the RL fans in here so far. All I've seen is a bunch of garbage spouted that it's "quintessentially Australian", when in reality it wasn't invented in Australia & has been rejected by most Australians, plus a whole bunch of useless comparisons to NFL.

    The only real garbage I've seen in here is the ridiculous notion that any sport is inherently 'better' than another. What about you is so insecure that you need to spend your time arguing with people about the sport you like being somehow better than one you don't? Even if by some dark magics you were able to prove that AFL is, inherently, 'better' than Rugby League what do you gain? Some sense of superiority? Who gives a ****. Like what you like and let others do the same. In the end you're sitting on your couch every weekend watching muscly men run around in pajamas, whether you watch footy, league, union, basketball or ****ing kabaddi. It's all the same in the end.

    i love a good pile on aussie sport but the warriors have been a resounding success imo. they have a large, committed core fanbase, they have a pretty solid backlog of semis and finals appearances and their mercurial nature as a club always attracts the attention of wider sports fans in nz.

    even someone like me who enjoys the odd game of league but will always massively prefer union can't help but look when the warriors are playing because it will always be interesting, win or lose.

    edit - the storm are a success too surely? they win like 98% of their ****ing games the soulless annoying ****s

    I actually watch hardly any football as it's the mortal enemy of cricket. However, I wouldn't read too much into the watching muscly men running around thing considering you're a wrestling mark.

    Pretty much sacred ground as far as I am concerned. Would love to go back, went to the Bathurst 1000 as a 10 year old kid and It was an incredible experience

    Been to quite a few races over the years, pretty much every Adelaide 500 since it started, and the inaugural round at Tailem Bend. Been to the F1 at Albert Park, been to a Sandown 500, and went to Phillip Island as well but there was no racing on at the time. Where as I have only ever seen top level cricket live at Adelaide Oval

    I wasn't saying it as a negative. I was saying that in the end that's what all sports come down to, as if any sport has more base merit than another. Arguing vehemently for one sports superiority just shows you as an idiot.
