Did commercial concerns overshadow footballing ones in the search for pre-World Cup opponents?

So our only game in May is versus the Kiwis.  Which I don`t think is a bad thing.  We should beat them.  It creates a different kind of pressure – a game against a heavyweight can feel easier as you are expected to lose.  And they don`t like us.  So it should be a good game.

But our Kiwi cousins have been in the thick of things.  While we, aren`t.

Most media reports have said “We asked team X, Y and Z and they said no”.  Ummm, minnows like NZ travel for their games.  No-one will go to NZ.  We are also minnows.  And we are also very far from most other countries.

Did teams X, Y and Z say no because they wanted a bigger match fee?  Did we not consider playing abroad because the FFA wants/needs the money from Australia based home games?

I don`t get the feeling that the full story is out there folks …
