International clubs in AFL by 2032?
Authored by: Brett Northey on Monday, July 04 2011 @ 08:29 pm ACST

As for the push for Canberra to get an AFL side, I'm just telling you what I've heard about it, which is not much.  Perhaps within Canberra's bubble it is better known.  Like I said, you'd better get out there and push it so the rest of the country knows.

Perhaps rather than focusing on why others do not deserve an AFL team, perhaps we can look at why you think Canberra does.  In terms of heritage (how old are the leagues, where have they stood in interstate comps, what are the great clubs), what kind of population base is there, what kind of allegiance do they have for footy versus other sports, are there local businesses like Ford at Geelong or what are the other options (these days most AFL clubs are indeed not geo located with their sponsor), has local government talked about supporting the long term goal, etc.
