I'm also not against it. e.g Our Kangaroos moniker getting exposure in the US could be good for us, the "Aussie" team for American fans.I’d like to see this develop. Would have no issues with Collingwood playing away in this fixture.
That's just creating a bigger load of new problems. And playing in Melbourne during the AO really isn't a problem, nevertheless they've already figured out a simpler and cheaper way to avoid it.Personally, I'd like to see the US experiment with an AFL Women's game being played there first for premiership points.
Could even do it as a double-header women's fixture in mid/late January - avoiding the problem of playing in Melbourne while the Oz Open is on.
What size though. Australia has huge (by world standards) cricket grounds only because of Australian Football. I would imagine that cricket grounds (for Indian and Pakistani ex-pats mostly) would be on the small side, and unsuited to the AFL.All sports. I visited syracuse in upstate new york in 2012, and they had a cricket field, with grandstand (similar set up to your local VFL ground)

who could forget "the worst 47 seconds in footy"!Didn't you guys do the same for years up at Cairns?
So the following was a silly comment considering we haven't gone there yet.Why dont you tell me 'richmond fan'
we played 3 years in a row but im pretty sure 1 was a legit suns home game
already failing and looking to sell home games for money...
Which is much smaller than the field needed for an AFL game - or any adult 18 a side Australian Football game. You could fit an American Football field in pretty much any major cricket oval in the world (except maybe Auckland's Eden Park); but that doesn't mean they are anywhere near suitable for AFL level footy.They're big enough to have a gridiron in the middle of it
I don't agree. The US is a completely saturated sports market. China isn't. Even if the odds of China ever latching on to AFL are remote, they're still higher than footy ever making a dent in the American market.I don't mind it. Much better market than NZ or China.
