Will International footy reshape Australian Football?

I think the T20 comparison is a good one. 9 a side is fast and furious as you don't get a rest because you're never more than a kick from the action. Why not develop different variants of the sport like cricket? There's no reason why 9 a side and 18 a side can't survive in the same towns/leagues, just like cricket has test matches, one dayers and T20s.

Regarding a visual example of tournament based 9s is played in Europe, I've uploaded the entire webstream from the main field at the 2008 EU Cup in Prague, Czech Republic here (RAR torrent):
