This might be the spot to find out where other Demon expats live? Now that we are not crap anymore it might be a good thing to watch a game or two with other supporters who understand the pain and euphoria that Melbourne provides like no other team.  Me Phuket. 

Sa wat dee krup

Not an expat, but my wife still lives in Thailand. Geez Phuket has changed a lot in the last decade...........

I'm in Phatthalung if you know where that is, middle of bf nowhere. Was in Phuket for 9 months a year or so ago, where do you watch the games? Aussie Bar? If I'm over that way around game time I'll hit you up.

Not an expat per se but I spend about 8 months per year in mainland China primarily Shenzhen and Changsha.

Japan in Aichi Prefecture.

I get the AFL pass during the year to watch games. I avoid the ex pat bar in Nagoya as it's like that tavern Obi Wan and Luke went to find Han Solo.

I spent six years in Zambia, DRC and South Africa in the early noughties. 

Back then it was the ‘Toyota AFL highlights’ on DSTV which was essentially two to three weeks delayed telecast of the round/s.

Most of the time, this was preferable over the dial up internet in 3rd wold ‘Efrica’. 

Best thing as to have your own pill on hand and hunt down other Aussie expats who enjoyed a kick.

Hong Kong.

Have a very accommodating local bar that had no idea they had AFL on their cable package until I told them.

Always happy to have it on the big or small screen for us (usually just me and the wife) whilst everyone looks on confused.

I’m in Abu Dhabi and about to move to Dubai. I never miss a match and go to work the Aussies Abroad Grand Final Day every year. Hopefully to watch the dees this year.

I live in a rural part of the north of England. No sports bars here, just village pubs.  I watch games on BT Sports. They do about five a week, and a highlights package. They also cover the Big Bash and Ashes tests. It's not too costly a subscription, especially if you have a BT phone line. I used to use the watch afl service but WiFi here is fairly poor and I got frustrated with constant buffering. If BT are not covering the Melbourne game I listen to the radio coverage. I've always enjoyed that, it takes me back in time.

I had the pleasure of watching a couple of games in Tarporley Cheshire courtesy of watchafl last year. I get what you mean about buffering.

And, if you count illegals, you can probably double that figure!

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
