    Watching Tv last night and an ad for the AFL came up "go to PLAY.AFL" The difference between these guys and the frank schilling's is that the .AFL is a vanity thing, similar to .Bmw and .Sony. So we will see some of these pesky New Gtld's around. The Afl will just put the price of chips up to cover costs!!!

    I wonder just how many people watching here in Australia actually understand what the .afl gtld extension actually is when advertised.

    I doubt they'll do anything significant with it, much like BMW launched one .bmw site a couple of years ago and haven't touched this extension since. Once the data came in about confusion I'm guessing those BMW execs ran for the hills.

    At least the AFL are advertising using their extension, they really should put the www. in front though

    In my view doing anything with it is a mistake.

    "coles brand cocaine" now available.................please use responsibly......if not we take all the profits and you can use up the governments help line paid by your taxes or a help line struggling to gain financial support from the community as the government what pay for it.

    note: coles brand cocaine is an offshore company so we also don't pay australian taxes.

    ENJOY your footy whilst we brainwash your children.
