- AFL Club
It's always a bit contraversial to move an existing club to an Aussie Rules heartland state, but then again is that worse than the corporate mcdonalds franchise clubs like West Coast?
I've always believed that the comp should have maintained its suburban roots and the best clubs in the respective state leagues should have been propelled to the AFL through investment, instead of the corporate franchises.
Having defacto state teams like Eagles and Crows mixed with suburban teams makes no sense. You got a club representing the entire West Coast but then you have a club representing a small port city within that coast? Even worse in regards to SA as Port Adelaide is merely a suburb of Adelaide, which is supposed to be represented by the Adelaide Football Club...
So make it happen, up the Perth Kangaroos, you'll have all the initial supporter base who decide to stay with the club, North Melbourne supporters in WA and the new/current fans looking for a new team.
Being that the AFL like to have teams in the same state jumper clash for colours, kangaroos to Perth makes sense.
