This is an old chessnut that has been brought up several times. I will only say that it is not as simple as having a Hills association. It involves football associations virtually state wide, due to the need of all association boundaries to be re drawn to allow for another association. That's if it even gets that far.
At least with a Hills comp, Hills teams might win some Premierships. They are a majority in our Association as we get told so often and yet they will only be Minor Prems in 5 of the 20 Division one competitions. Interesting.
Is it about winning premierships or more simply a matter of logistics and common sense.
I dont know you tell me. As others have said and as FootballNSW have said, it will only be considered as part of a total redistribution of NSW Football boundaries, that was 5 years ago and aside from the occassional cursory glance it gets no more attention. Theres no money in it so its low priority.
All we need now is curveball and his carbon footprint argument and Alex to pop his head up with his made up facts and statistics and high school research techniques to continue the journey.
FNSW need the agreement of all stake holders. Then, everyone needs to agree on the redistribution boundaries. If anyone here believes that Associations will willing give up clubs and therefore revenue to another Association, then I have a bridge you need to buy.
Any opinions expressed here are mine alone and not necessarily indicative of any formal Referee's body unless otherwise stated.

Will never happen all the other association have to agree to it and they won't , who would agree to letting players go so will never happen, was at state meeting approx 15 years ago when it came up and the vote was 33-2 against so either put your hand up to help change or play afl
