Since this years game has been cancelled due to the corona drinking virus it will be interesting to see if this venture continues. I wouldn't be surprised if it peters out like the NZ attempt.

Peters out is being kind .
There was very little interest .
Lots of propaganda but very little interest .

Lol what was the quote from the NZ bloke
There's more interest in cycleways to nowhere .
:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

So it's a perfect opportunity for fumbles to end the China experiment ..lol if they do the propaganda will be great reading .
Something like
Regrettably have to end this very very successful venture
We had sell out crowds
The Chinese really took to the game
Blah blah .

The NZ thing was always contingent on support from Wellington Council, when that was dropped so was the game. The china thing has a little more support than just a local city council and the AFL.

Im genuinely surprised that Canberra were never able to get the blessing of the NRL to have a game in Hong Kong and if done properly no doubt others would have joined in just like they have for the AFL.
During the Superleague period, it was planned that games would eventually be played in China.

In 2012 it was reported that Canberra was talking to Manly about playing a match for points in Hong Kong, but that match never eventuated. Club sponsors, including the Raiders sponsor, Huawei, were keen for a game to be played in the home country, but plans were abandoned when support from the NRL was not forthcoming.

In 2013, Channel 9 and the Chinese Government were reportedly supportive of the match happening, and the NRL had appointed an independent consultant to look into it further.

In August 2016, Fairfax reported that Canberra conceded that it was probably never going to happen.

In 2015 it was reported that the NRL supported a concept to take the game to China as put forward by former coach Paul Broughton. Under the plan , half a-dozen athletes, hand-picked from China’s 1.35 billion population, will be brought to Australia and placed with NRL clubs, while some coaches will be taken to China to expand the game there. However, a year later, Fairfax media reported that Broughtons was more or less being ignored by the NRL hierarchy, however shortly after the report the NRL evidently gave its approval to the plan.

Lost opportunity for AFL to showcase game in China this year so Chinese fans will be eager and hungry for more great football in 2021
Now is not the time to drop the ball ( pun ) on this overseas promotion of AFL, but to focus on getting a local grass roots, youth or school competition up and running to complement the venture.

Are they protesting in the streets of China because the multitude of fans can't watch their fave new sport .

Maybe they should just show reruns of games
Keep the ratings on an upward trajectory .
Apparently some afl fans can't even tell the difference between games ..so the poor Chinese would have no hope .

Thanks .
Although it was about 14 yrs ago the fact that 50k fumblers watched the 2005 GF on fox while the 2006 GF was being played & couldn't tell the difference is still hilarious .
I suspect the poor Chinese would be in the same boat .

I can hear the Chinese GOVT trembling from here .
How dare Mick Milkshake threaten to deprive the million upon millions of Chinese fans of watching a game of fumbles .
What about the poor catering tent workers .
Their busiest day of the year ...no more

Then again tough love might teach them a lesson .
