The ACT may be split between the Rugby codes and Aust Footy yet NZ is being touted and even mentioned in the same breath as the ACT by some as an AFL elite demographic, despite its obsessive Union culture and NO Aust Footy pedigree whatsoever.

I certainly don't apologise for exposing this sort of incredulous ignorance.

Rory now you're replying to "Mark" when there was no such person in this thread?

I guess you feel you're losing the argument when you resort to comments like the recent ones, about Canberra vs NZ.  My point that Canberra is split between codes is very relevant.  A small population that will always be split versus a whole country that you only need to get a niche in to get both a decent size following and the economic/business support necessary.

So, again, it isn't ACT vs NZ, it's ACT having issues that make it not particularly attractive for its own AFL side.  Why so obsessed with having an AFL club anyway, what's wrong with your local footy?  Why are you so stressed that NZ could have 1 AFL club oneday, when Melbourne already has 9?  Why aren't you hammering away demanding less teams in Melbourne?  And funny how you seem to want to sledge people that don't agree with you, dropping in little slights here and there about ignorance when you know damn well all along that it's a matter of difference of opinion not knowledge.
