Oh my,

It is understood that Seven has reached out to the NRL to express an interest in gaining the rights as part of an attempt to capture greater market share in Sydney and Brisbane, in a move that could end its long association with televising the AFL.

Yes, We have 7,9 and 10 all wanting to sign Rugby League. Also that link reaffirms that the NRL could produce there own matches.

While down South we have 400000 pissed off Asian camera men dazed & confused.

wonderfully vague and unsourced. If we posted shit like this about the NRL youd say the same thing.

I reckon the AFL could afford to expand to 22 sides.
22 teams.
22 games.
23 rounds with a bye for each side
Each team plays each other once, alternating home and away, 21 games.
An extra rival/derby round each year, 22 games in total.

Prime expansion teams.
First 2:
Tasmania: home games split between Hobart and Launceston.
Canberra/Albury: GWS should play all home games in Western Sydney if they want to establish a following in Western Sydney

3rd
Northern Australia Nomads, home games split evenly between Darwin, Townsville, Cairns with one game in Alice Springs, the other alternating between Rockhampton, Mackay and Port Moresby.

4th expansion team out of
Newcastle
North Sydney
Wollongong
WA 3
SA 3
Sunshine Coast

Take it easy for goodness sake, the football code doesnt have the talent to have that many teams yet, the only way any of the codes could be as big as that would need to take over the whole country and that isn't about to happen any time soon. The standard of the football whatever code would be absolute garbage. It's alright to have these codes wars and stuff, but be real about it. The AFL really needs to remove 1 of the vic clubs if it's going to expand again so soon, expanding again now would be a disaster and the game will take a massive hit. There just isn't the talent to do it esp for the afl as they dont have another pro comp to pillage. The other codes could but they don't have the money. Just look at whats happened to Rugby Union out here.

This is a pipe dream. The league might get to 20 teams - where that 20th team ends up ive no idea, but its probably Canberra or perth. But anything else is ridiculous.

The Northern thing will not work. I think when you consider expansion the afl I think should steer clear of medium regional areas. I think they are too big for this. Geeking and Gold Coast are major cities. I think a third Sydney team is a must given the huge market there ... not regional team but sydney. I think they may explore Newcastle though. I think if that happen you may see a tassie side come in but this is not a decision based on good business but more sentiment I feel and to complete national coverage. A Canberra team is also needed and see this as more of a priority over Canberra as it is a growth market. Somewhere down the line a third south aussie team and maybe wa team but these are more icing on cake rather than required. Cancers and Sydney are the growth markets.
