You could look at it the opposite way to what has been posited here.
If other teams failed before they were deemed to have at least one reason why they shouldn't be in the league. Whether it be facilities, supporter base or otherwise.
You might say they'd be then facing an uphill battle rectifying those shortcomings, at least anytime soon.
We on the other hand are applying "fresh" and have just as good of a chance to be accepted as those who were granted licenses the first time around.
Top 3 clubs by supporter base. Arguably (is it arguable?) best facilities in the league (with space for Africa). Home ground provisioned (not really unique to us I guess). Financial clout (presumably, given we've applied). We've obviously put a lot of work into our pitch/application. Hell, the Michaela Long story would just about be the biggest in the league instantly and bring untold publicity and interest.
Not saying it will happen. But there's two ways to look at everything
