Dear B-A,

A question was posed by a contributor to the Sydney Morning Herald's Column 8 
Given that so many AFL teams have bird names as nicknames. eg Hawks, Crows, 
Swans etc. and so many so-named are perched at the top of the ladder, does AFL 
actually stand for Aviary Football League? 

Perhaps some Sherrinologists could elucidate.
