    That's great, they will make NRL more enjoyable for the people who already watch it...

    The point is that the AFL aren't interested in bogans like you who like NRL and have done so from birth. They really aren't trying to influence them to love AFL. The battle is the next generation, and the fact that this generation will grow up in areas where their local teams (Giants and Suns) will be really successful, whereas what are the gaurantees that Titans will exist (nevermind be successful) or the teams in Western Sydney will be successful?

    Didn't say it'd die. It'll be gloomy though.

    Already the fans are raging at someone with some actual business acumen running the game.

    well it's clear you equate strength and dominance to boganism, so for that compliment i thank you. in regard to the suns & giants you've made a leap to them being a guaranteed success hastily on the field and off. the gold coast is a graveyard for all sporting teams because there is so much to do here, being cooped up in a stadium for hours is way down on the list unless the team you actually support is playing them (everyone here is from somewhere else)

    western sydney is more under threat from soccer picking up its game than afl

    Yes I'm sure people would much rather be at the beach and Dream World during winter than watch a game of football.

    They've had unsuccessful franchises because they've been run poorly, not because there 'are other things to do'

    There is apparently nothing to do in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane.

    I would add Adelaide to that, but uvelocity would be right in suggesting there is nothing to do there except watch football.

    I think there's no doubt that the AFL has better managed expansion than the NRL tbh.

    How much inroads have the Storm made in Melbourne, ftr?

    Depends on what you mean by "inroads".

    They've helped develop a rugby league culture of which there was basically none beforehand, union had a far greater following.

    I think the Storm have been a success, but I don't know the financials. Mine is purely from an anecdotal point of view.

    On the whole Melbourne is just ridiculously sports crazy though, so it'd be easier for a non-AFL team to invade there and at least get some traction than perhaps another city like Gold Coast or Western Sydney.
