The AFL itself has pushed for anything Australian Football to be branded AFL, pressure being brought to bear even on the SANFL to change a while back I believe. I never played AFL either, it was always Aussie Rules or footy.
Its that Aussie habit of turning every thing into a -----y eg. footy, barby, tinny, treadly, that has prompted Australian football to be largely referred to or called footy in the USA I believe.
