    A Third Team In Sydney - It's Only a Matter Of Time !!

    Auskick, like most things AFL, is a rebadged Victorian program - VicKick - which began in 1985. And in 1985, in Victoria, no one was seriously worried about a soccer takeover. Worried they might grow broke sure, not not worried about a soccer takeover.

    AFL overtaking NRL in QLD

    Lions ratings in brisbane in 2008 were occasionally reaching that 100k mark. I dont have records before that, but imagine during the successful years and leading up to the 2007 Grand Final, the ratings would have been ok. Sustained periods of success are necessary for any team in Queensland.
