Let me start by saying this, I’m an AFL person. I have always been an AFL person. My allegiance to the Broncos in the NRL is more to do with it being tied to my birthplace than any hardcore support like that I reserve for my beloved Carlton.

The AFL’s billion-dollar television deal is the equivalent of a big bang for Australian sports – a cosmic explosion that will redefine the landscape. With the AFL’s deal with Channel Seven and Foxtel locked in for 2012 to 2016, other codes most now jockey for their own deals from what’s left.
