 I heard it said that the AFL put pressure on the doggies to drop the ACT and NT like the proverbial hot spud to explore NZ.

I do believe the AFL are very much pushing the NZ expansion at our expense for ALL the wrong reason and I intend to continue playing devils advocate in this respect.

re suggestions of AFL nudging Doggies out of Canberra.  Even if this is true - the obvious connection to make would be that the AFL want's GWS and Swans to get the NSW and (and by default, the) ACT focus.  That's not entirely unreasonable.  For example - were it that North Melb were still playing a couple of games at year at Cararra, I dare say, we'd've been given the nudge by now.  Slightly different of course, as Canberra won't be the 'home' of the Giants.  However, it's probably verging on the obvious what the preferred strategic structures (in and around ACT) might be going forward - that the Western Bulldogs might not be deemed an ideal fit, ......wouldn't surprise me.
