Given the pandemic & the economic disaster, you can forget the ABS projections. Especially seeing Vic is the worst hit economy. Some 80k job losses per year for 5 years is what I saw mentioned.Where I get my information?
I told you the source.
Bureau of Statistics & Tasmanian Government.
I hope this isn't correct, but even if substantially true, the ability to support 10 teams in Vic & a couple of the new interstate ventures must come into question.
TV money must come under pressure & as will club sponsorship.
This is not a good position for the AFL. nor AR in general.
Cutting costs is the name of the game, We'll see a row for the finite money available between AFLPA & all the other areas the AFL currently operate in.
