Quote:

In USA you have these incredible athletes who are no longer able to play professional sports, who have got phenomenal talent that could athletically transfer across the AFL. I think that's something definitely worth exploring.

"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. "
