I can see a reasonable argument for allowing both Spain and Catalonia if they are not able to work together. Obviously it's not the same as having multiple USA or PNG teams - this is an historic issue that goes back to the identity and independence of various regions of Spain. We're certainly not going to "choose sides" of the argument on that issue here. But the AFL can't expect to solve much bigger political issues that go beyond football.

I do agree that two teams from one country should not get extra attention above any other country, such as Finland, but I don't think the AFL are particularly doing that. Don't read too much into "working to secure". Having said all that, I agree the odds are against either Spain or Catalonia making it.
