You think new hypothetical league is knocking back the drawing power of 3 or 4 of Essendon, Collingwood, Richmond, Carlton, Hawthorn, Geelong?
I think you’re really really really over-estimating how much people give a ■■■■ about fairness and what name is on the competition, and conversely underestimating how much they care about continuing to support the side they’ve always supported.
And no administrator or investor would want to knock back any club who could draw a 70 or 80k crowd- why would you?
A new fantasy league would start with the 6 biggest VFL clubs, or it’d eventually fail.
Like it or not, more people watch footy in Melbourne than outside it - total and average. If/when that changes, we can have a chat about their being equal footing between WA/SA $ Vic.
