Quote:

The AFL is quite wisely trying to break international markets, but they're a very different organization to things like the IPL and the NBA. I mean, basketball and soccer have a natural international following. They have deep roots within communities and suburbs and cities in various parts of the world. So it's not this question that you have to sell a strange game to a local population and show them why it's special.

"We're now living in a country where half the people were either born overseas or have a parent who was born overseas. So this is a rapidly changing country and Australian football is going to have to find its way in that changing world. "
