“THE appalling crowd attendance at the Sydney AFL elimination final between the Swans and the Kangaros clearly demonstrates that AFL is not a football code that belongs to Sydney, and never will be. Sydney is forever the heartland of rugby league, and rightly so. The AFL’s plans to create a second team in Sydney is therefore ill-advised and an arrogant disregard of Sydney’s overwhelming rugby league culture.

As Collingwood coach Mick Malthouse once said of the suits in AFL House: men in suits always screw men in footy boots, rank and file footy fans in both codes included. “

John Bell Lyneham, ACT, letter to The Australian.
