America has teams where it makes financial sense, they don't hand out teams just so more states can have a team.. get a grip ffs.
The Arizona Coyotes exist because the NHL wants to push their product on the south western US states. The franchise continually runs at a loss, was owned by the league at one point (this is unusual), and at the present time the local council has elected to not renew the arena lease for next season.

Arizona has a population of nearly 8 million, what’s Tasmania’s population again?

Glendale has a population of 200,000.

Are you trying to argue that Arizona and Tasmania are similar economic expansion zones?

Doesn’t one have like 14 times the population of the other?

Population of USA is far greater than Australia. Relative population of both Arizona & Tasmania actually make up 2% of their respective country.

I don't even think the other poster was even arguing this, but how ill informed you are never fails to amuse

And now explain why the fu** relative population matters when a state has 8 million people to sustain a team :think:

..because if each team had a catchment of 7 million (which is population of Arizona) an Australian league would only have 4 teams.

And where the fu** did I say a team must have 7 million people to have a team?

Are you all there? What are you arguing against exactly?

I said it’s ridiculous to compare Arizona to Tasmania then you started saying some dumb sh*t about teams needing 7 million people? Do you have any idea what you’re saying or do you just say it?

You can always use ur brain. Australia's population is 26 million. A catchment of 7 million is a big chunk of that. For example if all teams had a catchment that size, which isn't uncommon for american leagues, then in Australia we'd have 4 teams. American leagues have over 30 clubs.

..& that's why it's dumb to compare American teams & their catchments to ours.
