    I just suggested Melbourne as they have current set up but I actually think a South Australian entrant in GRR wouldn't be the worst idea. Melbourne by proxy of being the centre of the AFL universe...

    I'm not going to argue development because it's certainly something RA has failed to do at any real adequate level but let's be 100% realistic here. We have the current 5 teams drawing primarily from...

    I agree. Might be a little too far to start. A bit far fetched here. But the Sth American Pro League is kicking off next year. Could be a future link in with that in say a Cup competition.

    Saw that. Issue is, changing the season puts it in direct conflict with GRR which could cause issues with any prospective existing club participating.
