AFL International Cup Grand Final 2017: Why did the Mozzies win?

I'm glad you commented Rory, because that forced me to do a little research.

Firstly, I don't see why any development should be mutually exclusive. Secondly, we have to acknowledge that every "market' is different. Thirdly, one man's freedom fighters are another mans terrorist. I don't see why the push into NZ schools is seen as a "hard sell' whilst the push into PNG schools is seen as "enlightening". the object is still the same - to benefit community football.

You mention the NEAFL which is a very good point.Why not a PNG side in AFLQ or a NZ side in NSWAFL graduating to an eventual NEAFL side. The NEAFL has no restrictive nationality requirements like the I.C. so any side can be bolstered as required.

Tasmania and the N.T. are not an options - they are regions. Population Hobart 112k, Launceston 86k,, Darwin 142k, Alice Springs 30k. Auckland 1,415k. Port Moresby 400k. Teams play out of cities not regions or even towns.

Of course television growth is an important part of the model.
there are now four AFL teams where were none.

As a matter of interest how would you proceed with PNG ?
