To boldly go where no sport has gone before :)

Seriously though - it is typical of the AFL. Look at their expansion thus far in the men's comp - could have played it easy as she goes but took on the bold and dangerous - yet rewarding if successful - path.

I wouldn’t say it is simple. The NRL took a decidedly different root with a reasoned arguement as to why whereas AFL took a different root to expand the comp quickly. Time will tell which was better. The afl also expanding into western Sydney was a gutsy move too. I use this to illustrate the afl move with women’s comp was typical of there willingness to take on high risk strategies. They could have played it safe, put another team in Adelaide for AFL for instance but they choose the tough route. Same with wonen”s comp I feel.

sorry i will reframe my point, as it was poorly written..

it is easy to tell what AFL are doing...

AFL are going hard out early, to capitalise on markets
by making it the premier women's comp in Australia.
on many different aspects,

Meanwhile in the NRL
