I always figured LA has the most expat Aussies as it's usually the first port of entry from Oz... Aussie celebs in Hollywood can help promote it tooWhy LA though? Why not in New York or even in one of the southern states like Texas? LA is not a bad option if we were to do this, but apart from its potential social media pulling power, I don’t think it is the best option. Happy for my mind to be changed on this though.
Maybe better to have it in NY or Philly, corresponding NFL fans can easily hang their hat on a sideThe sport isn't even recognised. Most think it's rugby when they see it. No one gives a shit.
Avoid the suburban stuff and go with relatable names I reckon. The Magpies vs The Cats is just terrible.
GWSydney and West Coast sounds good to me. Giants vs Eagles. East vs West. Very relatable to the US market.
I would love to see this happen.
Ah I see that perspective. Aussies would obviously be the most interested in Aussie rules. I just don’t see LA as the place to be for sportsI always figured LA has the most expat Aussies as it's usually the first port of entry from Oz... Aussie celebs in Hollywood can help promote it too
They'd probably reply with "WTF is 'Winter'? ".At least there would be some level of interest from LA. Better than China I suppose. Why hasn't India been looked into? 1 billion people who are madly into sport, just tell 'em it's what cricketers play in the winter and they will be all over it.
