Won’t happen. As you said re afl cities you dont change life’s long cultural,habits quickly or easily, or some times at all.

your argued re league over union is about false as well. League has always been bigger at club level and union at international level in australia. That’s hasn’t changed at all despite unions general failings in its administration.

can a second nz2 be sustainable and even succesful? Hell yes. Should the nrl have a strategy already in place for a nz2 admission at some point? hell yes.
Is nz ready for a second team now? highly debatable.
Will they be team 18? highly unlikely.
Will it be based in Auckland? It wouldn’t seem likely.

He likes fumbleball and hates union. Another opinion somewhat clouded by their own personal predilections.

Btw I don’t think League is at all likely to supplant RU/All Blacks in NZ or fumbleball in Perth etc but it can be a popular and sound alternative to those sports.
That's the reality. Suggestions otherwise are quite ridiculous

I wonder what the crowd will be in Vegas.. a 1 off double header.. bigger crowd than Perth ?
Will that make Vegas more viable than Perth??

Going by dumb arse logic on LU, absolutely lol
let’s base next expansion JUST on event crowds

perth 60k
Vegas 40-50k (maybe if enough freebies are given out)
Adelaide 48k

expansion sorted!

O so now you're anti event crowds lol
You've got more contradictions than the bible.
Only a troll or an absolute dumbass would use an event crowd ALONE to suggest where is ready for an nrl club.
Oh, hello!

or maybe you’re right in Which case the next three cities to enter the nrl are obvious

perth 60k
Vegas 40-50k (maybe if enough freebies are given out)
Adelaide 48k

You're the one that has refenced those 1 off event crowds as a qualifying criteria for a Perth team!
The only time Perth crowds fell out of this criteria was when they had a team!
So you tell me... are you a dumbarse or a troll ???

And not 30 years ago in a SL war?

3 X 20k sellouts
2x 60k sell outs
2 X double headers avg 40k
It took you a long time to circle back to the start of my point lol

I'm guessing your game is to continue that and capture as many people as possible that haven't noticed.

You should consider politics.
