Re: Fight Club - Football Club Memberships

You have to keep in mind that where AFL is played mainly - the really only football code is AFL. Yes there is soccer but even if you followed soccer you follow AFL. So you get a broad cross section in the main. For RL which is largely confined to NSW and Brisbane - and even going back to England and...

Re: Perth Nines a precursor to Perth team? No chance, says V'landys

I think that will be a mistake making it an independent “business” venture with support from the parent company. Who would set up a business in a basically bare market without head office propping it up in the start up phase.... which could be 20 years. Maybe this is the obstacle as nrl likely could...

Re: Perth Nines a precursor to Perth team? No chance, says V'landys

Seems we agree on the general principal of the need to expand Leroy. Understanding the financial constraints the nrl may have compared to the afl and thus different constraints, but I think a team in Perth is the priority .... maybe that does mean a Brisbane team first to get the money to fund a per...

Re: Perth Nines a precursor to Perth team? No chance, says V'landys

I think it is that type of short term thinking that has plagued the nrl and rl in general. Long term option to grow the game in this country outside nsw and qls would be to go to perth. The short term gain would be to chase dollars with a second team in Brisbane but to the detriment to the growth of...

Re: 2020 Battle of the Codes .

Hey. Totally agree afl is not International at any real level. It doesn’t bother me either ... doesn’t impact my enjoyment of the game one bit. I don’t care if it is only played in a small island off Peru for that matter ... again... as long as it doesn’t impact my enjoyment of the game. The cultura...

Re: Minnowbourne storm named best team in Australasia

I thought it was one player but okay 2. As I said the Melbourne Storm have had an impact ... they have certainly created awareness of rl so successful there. Problem is that is where it ends ... a niche market and no one really playing the game ... no kids in steers or schools throwing a rl ball aro...

Re: Minnowbourne storm named best team in Australasia

And points ... rl is minute as a sport in Victoria and they have a team so at least some media coverage. Problem is you just don’t see people playing it casually let alone for one of the few clubs there is . Imagine the scenario in south Australia, and wa and tassie ???? So for facts ... google the ...

Re: Minnowbourne storm named best team in Australasia

After all that dribble rl is still pretty non existent in Victoria. There is 1 league in the whole state. If you live on certain parts of the state you can’t play as no club or league. If you do play for one of the few clubs in Melbourne you are playing clubs across the length and breathe of Melbour...

Re: Minnowbourne storm named best team in Australasia

The problem is that whilst storm are a successful team the expansion of rl into Melbourne has not really happened. I think there has been a change in the later half re focus on grass roots but even then there has been little growth. I think this is the issue for rl in Australia in non traditional ar...

Re: 2020 Battle of the Codes .

Yes you are both correct. I also like how talking about international doesn’t actually address the point made ... re rl bring virtually non existent outside nsw and qld at grassroot level. This seems like a topic many rl zealots refuse to acknowledge or have trouble acknowledging .... they can’t den...
