Gold Coast Roos

July 14th, 2006 · No Comments · AFL

North Melbourne Football Club, the Kangaroos, have announced that they may be relocating from Melbourne to the Gold Coast in Queensland, which is somewhat of a surprise as they had been pushing into the Canberra market. I am sure Queensland could handle another team, but there must also be a place for one in Canberra. If the expansion of the Melbourne teams continue as expected, I can see a team in Canberra eventually, and one in Tassie too, it is just a matter of time. I always feel sorry for the fans of a club that gets up and moves interstate, it must be tough losing a local link to your team and not being able to go to watch a game every other week. For the Kangaroo players, the Gold Coast is a great place to go to and I don’t think they will complain too much. The fans too may enjoy an occasional trip up to sunny Queensland to see their team.
