Another view on things ...
The National Premier League NSW is about to embark on a significant growth in 2019.

Football NSW recently announced “a landmark broadcast schedule for the NPL”, where fans would “see an astonishing 445 matches broadcast, live and free across various platforms in 2019.”

There seems to be a lot of positivism coming from the 2nd tier of the game. IMO this has been required for a long time. It's all well and good for that level to demand change and inclusion, but until lately the level appeared very amateur and I'm sure there is a lot of people in power that would require convincing they can sustain a professional model. The changes coming in the NSW and the very ambitious news that FFV are aiming to build their own boutique stadia certainly highlights that they are working towards a more professional model. The facility at Kilburn suggests West Adelaide are heading in the right direction as well.
I think the saying "You've got to walk before you can run" is accurate is this scenario and I believe some parts of the game at that level are really finding their feet.

When Flores joined Juve and Carrusca donned the blue and white stripes of Hellas I was straight back into it!

On HAL expansion, it seems rather likely that the NT isn't going to be getting a side in either the HAL or a second tier anytime soon. Should AUFC be investing more time in promoting itself as a club that the NT can follow given the history between NT and SA? Perhaps with an expanded league and more games we could move one fixture a year to Darwin.
