Ahh its League making the bold statements. Beat that drum....
Seems a bit defensive from the NRL. To declare a desire to be number one is one thing, to achieve it quite another especially with such a conservative approach to shore up your own backyard.
A bold statement is not backed up by bold action.
The two new AFL teams in NSW and QLD clearly front of mind eh Dave?
5 years is a long time away, does Dave think the AFL will stand still waiting for the NRL to catch up or will they be thinking about how to stay ahead?
In the end does it matter?
Personally I couldn’t care less if the NRL gets stronger in NSW and QLD, makes no difference to the AFL match day experience at the mighty MCG.
A massive reduction in barriers to entry via the internet has meant there is a vast source of information available which is mostly free to access. Many sites dont even payt for content but compete against those that do. Very few sites can actually pay their contributors anything meangingful.
