AFL Canberra on LiveJournal clones

This entry was posted by Laura on Wednesday, 10 February, 2010 at

AFL Canberra is a local Australian rules football league based in Canberra and affiliated with the AFL.  The teams in the league are Ainslie Football Club, Belconnen Magpies, Eastlake Football Club, Queanbeyan Tigers, Sydney Swans Reserves, and Tuggeranong Hawks. Some of the players in this league have been called up to train with AFL teams and one team is officially affiliated with the Sydney Swans.  The league’s core audience is centered around Canberra, though Wikipedia says the audience has decreased as other sports have grown in popularity.

Given the small size of the potential fanbase for the league and the small size of the communities on LiveJournal clones, the assumption is that the potential interest in the league would be tiny to non-existent.  For Dreamwidth, DeadJournal, InsaneJournal, Blurty, Inksome, CrazyLife and scribbld, this is true.  There are zero people who list any of these teams as an interest on those services.  The single exception to this lack of interest involves a Belconnen Magpies fan on JournalFen. That individual last updated 302 weeks ago and is from the ACT.  They were born in 1975.

    Thank you for doing AFL Canberra.

    What are the other sports increasing in popularity? I was supposing rugby and soccer.

    (And there is a womens' basketball team known as the Canberra Capitals).

    Canberra has a hue number of netball courts. When I was there in August, lots and lots of people playing there. The presence of the Australian Institute for Sport probably contributes to some interest dilution on one level… Wikipedia cites rugyby and soccer if I recall.
