    G'day guys,

    Sorry if this is the wrong sub forum but For English we have to do a Point of view oral presentation about a particular topic in the Australian media. Because I spend half my time on this form I decided to do mine about AFL Expansion because why not.

    For my contention (my opinion on the issue), I chose to say that the AFL should not waste resources expanding the game but rather should focus on nurturing the game where it already exists. (Essentially just the traditionalist stance)

    Anyway, I was hoping that with the power of BigFooty I could get some ideas for arguments which I could use to help my case. What are some arguments that support the idea that the AFL should not expand?

    Cheers :)

    The question of whether or will ever work anyway - Sydney have been there nearly 40 years and still have it tough, Brisbane 30 years and still struggling.

    So is this how people do research now?

    You really should try and find information that is officially documented somewhere. BF is not a source. If you want ideas to get you started - search the dozens of threads already available.

    Adding more teams will only dilute the talent pool, and merging/relocating teams will only piss off older supporters - so there is no feasible way to carry out the expansion

    The expansion of the game by revenue hungry jackals looking to get into the NSW and QLD T.V. markets just so another Sportsbet ad can be seen is an affront to the great game we all love. While Gil was pleasuring himself silly at the sheer audacity and genius of AFLX a youth in Tasmaina chose to pick up video game console controller instead of a Sherrin. The neglect of the fledgling Tasmanian junior competitions is just the first of many in traditional footy heartlands. Soon local councils all across the southern states will make millions selling of the land that used to be used for local footy ovals. In a short time the game will only be played by those who to attend an APS school or are lucky enough to be sired by a former AFL player.

    I hope my perspective was dystopic enough for you.

    I want to be quoted correctly in your Bibliography.

    Never gonna grow the game if you ignore literally half the country's population. Stupid thesis and I'd definitely fail you.

    Rugby is deeply embedded and will take a few generations for that guard to change but it's definitely changeable.

    God you people are harsh.

    Start by researching membership and fried figures of expansion teams.

    Tv ratings in NSW/Qld.

    I disagree with your contention but I’m sure you can find enough to support your claim

    Use the crumbling of footy in north eastern Tasmania as an example of ignoring the heartland.

    It's a bit of an obscure topic imo, mate. It isn't in the media consistently and most English teachers (well mine anyway) don't give enough of a shit about footy to mark something like that with any proper effort. I'd be looking at something with more depth and prominence...that involves major societal issues.

    If you really want to do it though; look at supporter figures, club expenses and revenues, the markets...obviously interstate, etc. Then base your contention on that.

    If all you do is drool on the carpet you'll have passed on the collective knowledge of BigFooty.

    This is a failed economic argument from the outset buddy.

    Pick another issue.
