AFL is a non contact sport now that i've cleared that matter (jokes) It will be a great day on Tuesday to go to the Beach and celebrate a great day. if any Lebs play up on Tuesday i say remove them back to Lebanon (Only Lebs who can name the Current Kangaroo Test team can stay).

Depends what state you live in to be honest. If you were in Vic/SA/WA and said that then they would think it's Aussie Rules.

I don't know if I could name the current kangaroo test team it changed so often in the Four nations. and bloody Sheens taking Hodges off after 30 in the final for the hack Gidley was so bad...

It's football...not soccer. Hence why the governing body is called "Football Federation Australia".

I'm pretty sure the name 'Socceroos' came from a journalist before the 1974 world cup as a bit of a joke and it since stuck as Australian national teams have nicknames.

These days the name 'Socceroos' is basically a brand name, that is recognisable and is known by many even non Australian football fans. Even with the move to call 'soccer' its true name football in Australia, the name 'Socceroos' was never going to change.

Fox Sports header for the A-League is
A-League - A League Soccer, A League Results, A League Live Scores ...

Herald Sun has it under 'Soccer' as does The Daily Telegraph, The West Australian, The Courier Mail and The Age

They also have all the codes down as AFL, Rugby and NRL. So therefore none of the codes should be called football in this country.

For those of us who call it "football", let us call it just that. I'm sure Europe, the Americas (except USA), Africas and Asia would back our choice.

That's a pretty simple way of having it, but NRL and AFL are not sports or codes Cool
