It is great to see the Ammos excited about international footy. It seems to
me that for countries like the US that are moving in the direction of
developing a large local amateur competition (rather than in the direction of
developing AFL talent), that the future is with the Ammos and not necessarily
with the AFL.

Carna Revos!

Ideally all working in together would be best. The ammos providing exchange programs and touring teams of appropriate level, the AFL supplying some corporate clout / contacts, occasional elite exhibition games (preferably NAB Cup or main season) and pathways for elite juniors. The wheels are slowly turning, it's a matter of getting these things bedded down and regular so they don't disappear when there's a change of staff or whatever.

Your interview on Day 2 of the US Nats with the guy from WA was very encouraging.

very interesting "Export Product".

That's very interesting. I don't know enough about trade and finance to understand that fully.

re. the Ammos. For some time yet, they offer a perfect resource - especially at lower levels - of footy for fun, a perfect environment for travelling 'internationals' to develop a network and drop by to train for a few weeks and perhaps play in the magoos.

I still hope to instigate some form of (at least initially) VAFA D3/D4 '9s' style lightning premiership - - something that could slot into the international calender of '9s' tournaments - and perhaps in between IC's, that a Euro, or Asian, or Nth Amer squad might jet into Australia for a run at such a tournament.
