Sydney and Melbourne criticise each other, and fight over who is the best. But face it Sydney...Melbourne is the best. ...
Capital city of NSW, Australia. Very inferiour to Melbourne, capital city of Victoria.
Sydney has become very infatuated with AFL since its rep team, the Sydney Swans, won the AFL's highest team honour, the Premiership Cup. Previously, Sydney hated AFL. Could only get its own football team when one of Victoria's couldn't make a enough money to keep going. got draft and trade concessiond, like Brisbane, to keep going. That is why both teams are such powerhouses (or former powerhouses) when it comes to football. We've just gotta wait a couple of seasons for a victorian team, (eg Melbourne, Collingwood, Richmond, Hawthorn) to show them exactly where the games real supporters are.
Basicly, Sydney is a complete rip-off of Melbourne. They are fake football supporters!
Capital City of British Columbia, Canada.
Like the stoned younger brother of Vancouver, Victoria is the kind of place for people who aren't into the go-go lifestyle of big city life.
Victoria is sooo much nicer than Vancouver
The Commonwealth of Australia is a country in the Southern Hemisphere and is the world's smallest continent and the largest island with a number of smaller islands in the Southern, Indian and Pacific Oceans. Australia's neighbouring countries are Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and New Caledonia to the north-east, and New Zealand to the south-east.
The continent of Australia has been inhabited for over 40,000 years by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. After many visits by European explorers and merchants from the 17th century and onwards, the eastern half of the continent was claimed by the British in 1770, and officially settled as the penal colony of New South Wales on 26 January 1788. As the population grew and new areas were explored, another five largely self-governing Crown Colonies were successively established over the course of the 19th century.
On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated and the Commonwealth of Australia was formed. Since federation, Australia has kept a stable liberal democratic political system and remains a Commonwealth Realm. The current population of around Australia is around 20.4 million and is concentrated mainly in the coastal cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.
Australia consists of six states and several territories. The states are New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia. The two mainland territories are the Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory (ACT); the federal government administers a separate area within New South Wales, the Jervis Bay Territory, as a naval base and sea port for the national capital.more...
most of the territories work similarly to the states, but the Commonwealth Parliament can override any legislation of their parliaments. By contrast, federal legislation overrides state legislation only with respect to certain areas as set out in the Constitution; all residual legislative powers are retained by the state parliaments, including powers over hospitals, education, police, the judiciary, roads, public transport and local government.
Each state and territory has its own bicameral parliament (unicameral in the case of Queensland, the Northern Territory and the ACT). The lower house is known as the Legislative Assembly (House of Assembly in South Australia and Tasmania) and the upper house the Legislative Council. The heads of the governments in each state and territory are called premiers and chief ministers, respectively. The Queen is represented in each state by a governor; an administrator in the Northern Territory, and the Governor-General in the ACT, have analogous roles.

Australia's number one city in pretty much everything.
Especially in sports and entertainment.
Melbourne is the capital of Victoria, with currently 3.8 million people. It is set to overtake Sydney as Australias largest city in 2028.
it is so much better then Sydney, which is so congested and full of homos (literally - its got the most homos of any other city in Australia). Sydneysiders often bag Melbourne for being 'wet' when in fact Melbourne has less rain then sydney - its true!
"Melbourne is the coolest city in the world!"
"Adelaide is such a hole... i wish i lived in Melbourne"
The Capital of Victoria that is actually quite diverse with lots to do. However most of the definitions of Melbourne on Urban Dictionary are by Sydneysiders complaining about Melbourne being a hole and that Melbourne people always try to say how much better Melbourne is then Sydney when the Sydneysiders are doing the exact same thing by trying to say Sydney is better in the example
Sydneysider: Your city is a hole and ugly and you all play GAYFL. Sydney however looks beautiful and is so much better then Melbourne.
Melbournian: And you complain about us saying our city's better, wanker.
The wannabe capital of Australia.
All they do is talk themselves up and bitch about Adelaide and Sydney. Every good thing about Melbourne is stolen and copied from elsewhere, yet they claim full credit. This city has delusions of grandeur.
Melbourne is akin to a person born ugly, talentless and boring who then has non stop plastic surgery. Then lies, cheats and steals personality traits and life stories from others. All for the purpose of wanting everyone to think they are "the shit"
Its just a sad wannabe city...
It wants to be Adelaide but bigger and hipper than Sydney with a clean river like Perth.
Vic: Melbourne is the best, Adelaide is a hole.
Ad: Thats why you copy or steal every single idea and creation Adelaide comes up with, right?
Vic: Fuck you. Sydney is too big and overrated, Melbourne is more laid back and beautiful.
Syd: Thats why you are trying to BE us, always nipping at our heels, right?
Vic: Fuck you. Hobart sounds like fart.
Hob: You are running on empty.
Vic: Fuck all of you, we invented football.
Brissy: You Corrupted football. Theres only one real state of origin now.
Vic: Fuck rugby. We have Rove.
Perth: Actually, thats our fault.
