thats nice. Me I like details.
I would have posted them if I had them, however here is an article from which I've cherrypicked this claim:
On 2019 lists, there were roughly twice as many (about 105, up from 53) players in the AFL from NSW, Queensland and the ACT compared to 1996. The major gains were Queensland contributions doubling in number and recruitment from Sydney and coastal NSW increasing significantly.

The actual numbers escaped a quick read.

Really good information in that attachment. Puts to bed the myth around dilution of talent.

Not to me.
I watch and enjoy the WAFL. There's plenty of talent there and it's not bogged down in defensive tactics.
I don't watch so much AFL now because of the way many teams are coached.
Thankfully teams have realised that the only way to combat defensive tactics is to attack
and that chipping the ball backwards and even switching allows teams to prepare defenses.
That encourages me to watch more AFL.

Talent ? If an AFL player has talent then they put a player on to nullify the player.
Today, a player has to be an absolute superstar to beat the opposition.
