AFL CEO Demetriou Says Aussie Rules Football Won't Become International Sport
Published May 10, 2013
NO ENEMIES: In Sydney, Steve Mascord reported National Rugby League Melbourne Storm's CEO-in-waiting Mark Evans said that rugby league "does not have to fight tooth and nail with the AFL in Victoria and, instead, sport as a whole should be trying to attract people away from other leisure pursuits." Asked if he was ready to roll up his sleeves and battle AFL, Evans said, "No, I don't think so. I think it's about doing a good job yourself as a sport and competition. If you do that, nine times out of 10 people will come and watch" (SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, 5/10).
