    Australian Bills Fan

    Hi Guys ,I'm a Australian from Melbourne, have been a Bills fan since I was 10yo when we first got NFL on TV. I work for Geelong football club in Australia which is were Ben Graham (In my Avitar) The current Jets punter played football. I'm mates with him and wish him the best of luck in the NFL except for two games a year.

    This year I will only see 3 Bills games live which I hate! i've watched @New England, Vs Panthers and will get Vs Broncos. This website and the ability to chat to other Bills Fans will make my Bills love grow! Look forward to chatting with you Guys!!!!

    I'm dissapointed, they used to have a show on here every week in Canada showing AFL highlights.

    Hope you can make it next year!

    Not really, I used to follow the sport more.
    Ever since they took it of the air, I miss watching it.

    Is Geelong a good team?

    Geelong will be one of the teams in the hunt to win it all next season. Geelong also lost 4 Grand Finals(same as a Superbowl) in the 90's. I think Bills fans will understand Geelong fans well.

    I guess Geelong fans & Bills fans are a perfect match!

    I love when the umpire points when someone scores!

    Re: Australian Bills Fan

    Looks like you guys love it down there!
    Is it comparable to the NFL in terms of fan base and popularity?

    Re: Australian Bills Fan

    Its the biggest team sport in Australia, We have bigger Stadiums than NFL. Geelong can get 30,000 to a game but at the MCG it's not rare to get 60,000. At the Final which is always played at the MCG we get 100,000.

    That was a Final, we lost it with 10 seconds to go. The Sydney Swans beat us by 3pts and then went on the Win the championship. I have some good friends at the Swans but it hurt like hell. I was relying on Buffalo to have a good season to ease my pain! AFL starts again in March.

    Re: Australian Bills Fan

    Here's my other team!
    www.ticats.ca
    Canadian Football League
    It's pretty much the same as the NFL but with a few different rules and a bigger field.

    I can't wait, season starts in June, we just got a new QB!

    The Bills are another story.
