Participation rates of Football in aus are high, but the draw of Aussie Rules football is higher. Much easier to get to a decent level and earn a decent income.

I also think that Australian teams in the A league are not doing enough to grow the game. They are out of touch with suburban football and there are still deep roots along historical identities.

Cristian Volpato is potentially a huge player coming through for Australia but he might also choose to play for Italy.
