Good post and both those clubs you mention - Hellas and Croatia - should have a chance to play in the A-League if they are good enough (same applies for Hume City and other fast-risers).Yeah I reckon Browny is a legend winning 3 national titles playing in a big market 2000km from Warrnambool.
I reckon the best you could look at is how they do it in Soccer. They have the State premier leagues (Victorian Premier league) with the champions of each state then playing off in the National premier league to then be regarded as national champions at a semi pro level (one level below the A league)
local rivals still get to play each other in local leagues such as Melbourne Knights vs South Melbourne Hellas while also competing for a national title. There is promotion relegation through to lower league just no promotion to the A league
