That's really sad if that's the case.

Personally I'd just like to pass on my unqualified admiration for the 16 squads who have made the effort to come out.

Alas, most AFL fans still seem to have just no idea. Glad though to see even people like Mike Sheahan down last Wednesday and then reporting positively on the day.

It's ironic, that, given the self interest of many AFL fans who care more for their club than the 'good of the game' - - it's hard enough to 'sell to them' investment and expansion in QLD and NSW, let alone internationally.

It's kind of expected though (the booing). Aussies will always give Yanks, Poms and Kiwis a bit of a stir. It's probably not optimal and I forgot to ask anyone today whether they took offence, but I wouldn't get too upset or serious about it just yet.

But yes, do agree it's still a hard slog to get the average AFL fan on board.
