Australian football creates online blog frenzy

SINCE the formation of Football Federation Australia back in January 2005, football has undergone massive changes at all levels. This has put football (soccer as it was previously called) on the map with the creation of the A League and the successful world cup campaign for the Socceroos in Germany 2006.

The huge popularity the sport has gained in the last few years can now also be found in the online world. Simply Google the words Blog + Socceroos, A-League or Football and you can find literally hundreds of Australian Blogs and sites on the topic of Football.

Every man and his dog wants to put his views forward on the local game. Hundreds of Blogs and websites come and go almost daily but these Aussie Football Blogs remain active due to the large readership of these blogs.

Another reason for this explosion in Football Blogs is the fact that for many years, football fans (no not soccer anymore) have been starved of proper coverage in the media. Too much attention has been given to the other codes. Fans have taken to the pen and have recorded their thoughts and opinions in blog land.

Below are some of the most popular blogs on Australian Football:

    I’m trying to figure out the relevance of Cassano’s picture. Any ideas?

    I was trying to cater to the needs of our female readers :o )

    I know Cassano is a bit of a nut-job but can you remind me of actually what the context was that he felt the need to take that ‘pose’?

    Germany is my soul team. I hope in 2012 Germany wins the European soccer championship. It deserves that. We need a victory. I want, at least, to see a good result on the next European soccer championship
