Cam, bushfire devastated areas will bounce back with rain. Football devastated industries will bounce back with money. The likelihood of rain rejuvenating bushfire areas is not assured but much more likely than money returning quickly and in the same volumes to football industries.

As with any problem there are multiple layers to an issue and this crisis is no different. Amateur clubs within Australia will probably bounce back because they hire rather than own. Amateur clubs overseas will experience a probable loss of momentum depending on how long they have been in existence or what measures they are taking to address the situation. The professional AFL has a number of assets. The simplest measure being touted is a loan against Marvel stadium. The second tier leagues and semi-pro clubs are going to be severely hit as they have lost revenue streams to cover capital costs.
It would help if the AFL could sell the U.S.A. sports networks on the idea to replay the 2019 AFL season or similar. The Yanks have been shown to like the (fanless) game and are seeing it for the first time so replays are not an issue.
