Why does everyone think Sydney has too many teams
Hasnt been a issue for 111 years
In fact no new teams haveen added to Sydney for 50 years
What was Sydneys population back then ? It was 2.4 mil
How many today 5 mil plus and growing
Technical Sydney can accomodate more teams
Most of the reasons have already been mentioned but another one is it is too easy for players to switch teams. It is too easy for, as an example, Tedesco, to switch from the Tigers to the Roosters. He doesn't even have to leave home. That makes fans sick, it is bad enough when the player leaves your club and moves to another part of the country but when he just moves next door and that club starts flashing him around taking credit for him waving him in your face, people lose interest in the sport over that crap. I am all for relocating several clubs and have the club keep a link to the area.
