That statement completely baffles me.Have put this article here to reduce the number of topics and threads on this section of the forum.
Yes, it's about the AFL sourcing some players from outside Australia.Well it is International and the AFL is involved in getting these players.
"We" ? IMO there are a number of developments with possibilities with N.Z. and China being at the top.We think a 20/30 year time frame for the game to develop Internationally to enable semi-pro leagues to form is possible.
If those players were potential AFL players then Yes.So the NFL code is attracting punt kickers from our game to their code - Is that poaching or as above being offered contracts.
IMO Australian Football overseas will receive the biggest boost when Australians become informed on the extent of Australian Football overseas.The tumble weeds are everywhere on most threads, and the care factor for International Footy on here is low also.
There is very little reason to do so. People involved in Australian Football overseas are too busy running and promoting their own club.Nobody is posting here anyhow at this time.
They must have some sort of set up because in the recent match NZ Falcons against the AFL Academy side at Marvel Stadium saw them pick some???? players who were playing in Australia. How extensive and current their info is do not know.Well, that's not entirely right, but yea, he has a say.
I do get your point though.
Does the NZAFL have a register where Kiwi players can let them know they exist?
My thought is "good luck". There are thousands if not millions of people who all have opinions on what the rules should or shouldn't be, so good luck mucking about in the mud with them.Some time ago I proposed the need for an independent body to help advise the AFL on matters pertaining to the organic growth of Australian Football.
One issue to for Australian Football to agree on a uniform set of laws under the same circumstances like reduced size and numbers etc.
That's what I was implying - representatives from around the world.I don't think they need an independent body, I think they need a unified body made up of the football bodies in each nation.
That's called "play on". Is the fullback still penalised if he kicks to from within the "square" ?Oh yeah, and the fullback is not currently penalised for kicking it out of bounds since they brought in the ability for the full back to run out of the square without kicking to themself - at least the league I am involved in anyway.
The AFL has made changes and we as Australians understand them as we have followed the history of the changesYup. That's collateral damage from the rule change, same as the umpire calling play on and the fb moves the ball over the goal line, it was a ball up on the kickoff line but is now just a rushed behind.
