that looks good man, also the same with the national rugby league, that aint national lol, should be like the state of origin, that should be the real national league of 7 states, and maybe co-exist with new zealand & even P.N.G in both football & rugby, to me only the a-league and the Aus Soccer League is the real national league,....
anyway that looks kool, i reckn if thats were to happen, and forget the money greedin' bigots, all teams all over the state, in any sports should play at their own home ground (like queensland & nsw do), and new footy grounds would be awesome in the country side for vic country and central state, while south melb along with other suburban grounds would get an upgrade along with the mcg, and west melb would have a new ground in the west suburbs, meanwhile id say Vic Metro Power would play its home games at Docklands, while Mildura Suns would have a stadium metricon in mildura and a stadium at port philip bay where the dockers would play, thats an awesome alternative universe
SUBURBAN GROUNDS:
Hawthorn at Glenferrie
St Kilda at Moorabbin
Richmond at Punt Rd
South at Lake Oval
Bulldogs at Western Oval
Dees at the MCG
Magpies at Vic Park
Blues at Princess Park
Kangas at Arden St
Essendon at windy hill

Rivalries
Metro Power Vs County Lions
Bulldogs Vs West Melbourne Giants
Melbourne Vs North Melbourne Vs South Melbourne Vs West Melbourne (when playing each other its always a rivalry, not 4 together but 1 on 1)
and some other regular rivalries like Magpies Vs Essendon Vs Carlton Vs Richmond Vs Geelong Vs Melbourne Vs Hawthorn... (not at the same time)

2004 Newspaper, would say after the vfl Grand Final, Vic Metro POWER end Vic Country Lions change for record equaling 4 in a row achieved by the Magpies in 27-30 and the Essendon team in 1891 to 1894 though the front page would say South Australia win the 2004 A.F.L Premiership, then the news of other state number 1 competitions premiership grand finals

that's normal isn't it? Carlton only has 1 good player? Usually teams has 4-5 good players and the rest are average
yeh, but sum of the WA players and SA players would stay in there home state because a comp of 18 teams based solely in a singular state wouldnt get the same attendance and tv rating (and thus money) as a the kurrent national comp

The Night Championships could've continued as a Pre-Season Knock-out from 1976 to Present, and also:
West Coast (1987) & Fremantle (1995) enters W.A.F.L
Adelaide Crows (1991) & Port Adelaide Power (1997) joined S.A.N.F.L
Brisbane Bears (1987) & Gold Coast Suns (2011) joined Q.A.F.L
Sydney Swans formed their own side (1982) and joined N.S.W.F.L....., G.W.S Giants joined the same league in 2011
Fitzroy Lions (1997) moved to the V.F.A levels, along with South Melbourne (1982)
V.F.L has 10 teams, with 2 divisions with what is the new V.F.L...... and that State of Origin could've been the bigger League, 7 States, play twice, and N.R.L in 1995 could've copied them....
Wouldve been awesome watching 2 awesome State of Origin Football Seasons in Winter, similliar to N.F.L and E.P.L which is a State Comp, thatd look wickd awesome

yep, and club football an every day of the week non stop. Probaly wouldve paved the way for "footy 24" a 24 hour round the clock channel dedicated to live footy matches as they happened, 6 matches per day at four hour intervals.
finishes work, head home for sleep, set the alarm....."my team is on at 4am" says clive....."ill see you later then" says pete his team is playing at the convinient 8pm slot

Origin wont be far away come 20 teams & a certainty at 22 games, the number of top level players doesnt cut it with 18 teams,
Was only really relevant until Adelaide joined the national comp, then the rot set in.

An intriguing question might be, if you re-designed football from scratch and determined that 12 clubs is optimum, with each playing each other twice (22 games) plus a final five only, which 12 clubs would you devise?

You might decide there’s no old clubs but fresh new teams from different parts of the country.

Melbourne as oldest club would have to stay. Then Carlton, Essendon, Collingwood and Richmond. Tasmania would get a team. Either their own brand new one or relocated Hawks. Sydney Swans and Brisbane Lions would stay to make sure northern states at least had one club to follow. SA and WA would have two clubs each. SA grab Port Adelaide Magpies and Norwood Redlegs. WA I am less sure, maybe East Fremantle and Perth or West Perth. I would probably get rid of a National Draft and either have State based drafts for clubs from each state or each club gets a zone from their state like we had before draft system came into being. If we did the zone thing, each club would have a proper football progression from under age to seniors that used to be the norm of under 19's from your zone playing for club under 19's, Reserves grade and the seniors.
