What is the criteria?

 

I'd love to see China field a team and of course Hong Kong. But 2017 is rapidly approaching.


In Topic: Ch 9 Selling Saturday Nights?

Dave Smith was dead right that we need Saturday FTA...

 

Even if we dont make as much cash, the exposure to new fans and sponsors is enormous.

 

For god knows how long, at least since the 1990s we have offer an absolute clear path to AFL.

 

They then put on the Brisbane Lions on Saturday nights and the Sydney Swans.

 

We can't allow it. Slam the door shut!


In Topic: Great atmosphere today

Great to hear about the atmosphere and that there was a drum.

 

Mexican waves are lame and disrespectful, especially in tight games. Glad it didnt get going.


In Topic: RLIF meeting in Paris

Why on earth would we take a RL tournament to the Asian part of the earth?

Of all the RL test matches since 2008 how many in what is considered RL territory have sold out and of those how big were the stadiums?

I'll tell you, sweet FA.

In a time when we are calling out for more test matches between top nations, some people want to take it tournaments to HK or Dubai. If we are trying to bleed the game of money, then this would be like cutting an artery all in front of empty stadiums.

RL does not have the international profile yet to host a financially successful event in Asia.

Hey buzz kill, Im talking about Nines (Which I qualified by saying "We could even one day host it.") or an Asian RL tournament. I didnt say the Intercontinental Cup, I said Fed Cups would be a hit with the Asian Nations. That means Japan v HK v Thailand v Philippines vs new Asian RL nations.

 

Relocated NRL games or even World Club Series would be viable in Hong Kong.

 

Maybe you should read posts before jumping in to be negative. Back in your box.
