It makes sense.... It will be Similar to Gold coast. Canberra is only 654 kms from Melbourne and Only 248 kms away from Sydney.Yes Canberra is the better option here.
Population of 500k in Canberra/Queanbeyan region
Within driving distance from VIC and traditional AFL supporting towns of Albury and Wagga.
More attractive for corporate sponsors/politicians to attend.
Plus it would enable GWS to focus on the Sydney market with maybe the odd game in Newcastle.
It's definitely true.Seeing that Eddie has never had a thought he could keep to himself, is there any evidence of this Collingwood Gold Coast idea from back in the day?
Darwin is a total joke surely - he must have either never been there or spent the entire time in the country’s shittest corporate box.Tasmania doesn't make economic sense and Darwin makes even less sense. Both teams would be financial black holes with very little benefit as there is no room for growth in either market.
The main stadium would have to be indoor and this a brand new stadium. I personally don't think NQ/Darwin can be a combined team.20 team league sounds great but playing footy in North Queensland and Darwin wouldn't be fun given the heat and slippery conditions at night
it sounds more like a way to push north out of melbourne
That would be incredible seeing Tasmania v Canberra this decade!
Not while gws are struggling to draw crowds we won’t Canberra are keeping them afloat at the moment
Northern clubs paying to develop there own players that’s a joke right maybe Sydney but the other three certainly don’t you do realise how much development money has gone into nsw and Queensland since gws and the suns were created don’t youWhat I heard was, give Vic clubs that play in Tassie over the next few years another excuse not to travel beyond their home grounds. Give my sliding magpies more of a chance of making finals by letting most the league into the finals. Make Tasmania pay for the development of kids like the northern states have to despite 20 minutes ago arguing that the Northern states shouldn't be allowed to and ,are them pay for junior development even though Victorian clubs pay sweet fu** all while Vic junior development is looked after. Or am I just being cynical?
You really need to start producing some actual evidence ? for these expert claims you continue to make about clubs not being financially unviable let me guess you don’t actually have anyTasmania doesn't make economic sense and Darwin makes even less sense. Both teams would be financial black holes with very little benefit as there is no room for growth in either market.
