The NBL made headlines after announcing their plan to add new teams to the league, backed by AFL and NRL clubs. Larry Kestelman started the media frenzy after pointing out that Fremantle would make a great spot for the ninth NBL team and that multiple AFL and NRL clubs were showing a keen interest in the model.

Topics discussed on the show include;

  • What's in this for the AFL? (2:00)
  • Is it a mistake to think that AFL paying members would easily translate to NBL paying members? (9:00)

  • Which AFL/NRL teams would be the best fit to enter teams into the NBL (14:00)
  • How would sponsorship be affected (18:00)
