-Further develop and execute the AFL’s China strategy to ensure AFL growth in relevance and audience for the people with Chinese descent living in Australia.

Lol
This statement is beyond stupid .
It's outright fucking bizarre.

So by playing an afl game in China suddenly the Chinese population living here who are exposed to afl every week in the season will suddenly say
Hey I'm going to follow that sport ..even if I've never had any interest ...just because they played a game in China .

Whatever drugs this bloke is on he needs to get off them .

Let's apply this thinking to RL .

Let's say S.korea
The Nrl take a game over there ..mild if that interest .
Then some nrl bloke comes out & says the same rot .
He would be rightly ridiculed .


Tell me ..when the NFL bring a game over here do any Aussies living in The USA suddenly take an interest in NFL because a game was played in their native country ...even though it's right there in their face in the US.

I think it’s a little more complex then that and I would try and explain it in more easier terms but, not yo be rude or condescending, unless you have some business knowledge that is based around sociological understanding, particularly the Asian, and more specifically Chinese, markets you are probably not going to grasp this. In fact, I think it is a very wise thing to include in a job description, as those who apply will need to get this aspect in spades ... in fact I am sure that would form n integral party of the interview in what he or she understands of this task. The AFL are a very very big business and employ people and pay them big money to do put people in positions that know what they are doing. Needless to say, maybe best you don’t put an application in.

Here's a kiwi's take on why the AFL will never expand in New Zealand despite massive efforts and Gilty's boast that they'd eventually have a team in the top comp. I particularly like reason sux........the games a mess lolololol!!!!!!

the only way there will be a AFL team in NZ>> if 1000's & 1000's of Victorians immigrate to N.Z over a 15- 20 year period.

They like it significantly less than you lot do. Not sure even a 50 year period would help.


Never realised quite how much hate there was for AFL from our Northern friends.

Despite the perception of our RL friends, Victorian rules was well established in both Queensland and New Zealand in the early days of football. Petty politics reduced its dominance in Queensland with the help of a very powerful NSW figure and New Zealand Australian Rules never recovered from WWI when it shut down for the duration. The most dominant football club in NSW’s for many years was the Waratahs which played by Victorian rules.
Below is on of the many examples from the press in those days


Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald and Advertiser
Tuesday, 10 September 1878

“FOOTBALL.
The annual match of the season was played last Saturday on the Hamilton Oval, Brisbane. As the battle was to be waged a la Victorian, an exciting
contest was anticipated, and, indeed, spectators and players alike agreed that no closer fight had ever been witnessed in the metropolis. The game commenced precisely at half past 3 o’clock, Roberts, the captain of the Stripes, kicking lustily towards the eastern end, and in a very short space of time it was evident that, rules or no rules, both sides were determined to do or die.
Ipswich men, carefully placed by their commander, took the ball well forward, where Ransom, tipping a little mark to Stafford, caused first blood for the Reds as the latter player sent the ball neatly between the posts.
Quickly kicked off, the ball, taken along the southern wing by Mandonald, was returned by Scott, and the Brisbane team, leanving only two men in their places rallied forth en masse and sorely tried Booker's and Baines's enduranoe; but the former eventually ran off to the aide and deposited the sphere of contention about the half-way post, where the play continued with varying fortune till M'Grath, dodging opponent after opponent, steered his course for the enemy's rearguard, and with a light drop kick scored No. 2 for Ipswich by as dazzling a piece of play as has been seen this season.”

Further description of the game followed and then:

“Full time gave Ipswich the victory by two goals to one, the general consensus of opinion being that the Victorian rules were, superior in developing smartness together with judgment, so the Athenians were not to be compared to their hosts as regards weight and strength.
Our representatives were entertained during the evening at the Hamilton, and the speakers generally took she opportunity of making their remarks eh
cathedra. Among other points it was elicited that all the Grammar Schools in the colony played under Victorian rules, rejecting the Rugby. as South Australia
and New Zealand did before them, thereby affording a strong suspicion that the English game must sooner or later succumb to the charms of its colonial daughter.”

Tis taking us a little longer than expected.


There are lies, damn lies and ratings.

You are actually correct here pal. And fumbling was also popular in Sydney with Dally Messenger having played the game.

At the time they were competing with Rugby and soccer. What changed everything was the introduction of the 13 man Rugby code in NSW in 1907/08 and shortly after in Qld.

The new exciting code immediately blew the other sports out of the water dominating player ranks, crowds and the media.

So the people of NSW & Qld had a choice back in the day and overwhelmingly voted with their wallets and feet for the greatest game of all.

And in NZ they had the choice of AFL but got smashed by RU......ever heard of the All Blacks. Whilst RL got a foothold in Auckland & other areas of NZ. Meanwhile fumbling disappeared. Banished. Thrown outta town. A bit like what happened in Wellington a few years ago. Sad but true lolololol!!!!!!!

Yep, started last but immediately dominated in NSW & Qld. By 1910 AFL had almost disappeared and RU was on its knees.

Yep
If you listen to some afl zealots ..Aflol was very entrenched in the northern states & even NZ .
I read years ago ..think it was a WIKI( lol most likely written by a zealot) that there were 153 clubs ...not teams ..clubs in NZ pre WW1
Lol
The misinformation spread about this abortion of a sport would make the N Korea propaganda dEpt blush .

So when it's pointed out that Rl came along decades later & was the game of choice in te Northern states & RU obliterated AFL in NZ suddenly the conspiracy theories come out .

Jesus h some fumblers just can't accept that there's plenty who's have no interest in their fumbling mess .

Interesting how The AFL had first shot and lost it..
after decades of being in the northern states..

Give it 10 years, if League plays it's cards right, Union could be even lower than they are.
