Dear Television Production companies, Sports Broadcasters and NFL Enthusiasts,
I am the founder and trademark owner of ‘Aussie-Goal!’ – the organisation that constantly pushes the boundaries of Australian sport to make it more entertaining and more lucrative for sporting teams, athletes, fans, punters and commercial stakeholders.
I am writing to you to pitch my TV show idea for an exciting, never-before-seen Reality TV Show that follows Australian Rugby League, Rugby Union, Australian Football League, and Gridiron athletes from Australia, New Zealand, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, and Papua Guinea (and other Oceanic nations) as they compete to become a Rookie on an American NFL team!
We have been inspired by the many Aussie footy players who have tried to make it in the NFL, and opened the doors for others to follow. We’re also inspired by the number of football fans worldwide who follow football codes of other nations during their own off season. And, for the first time ever, the 2024 Australian NRL season will begin with a double-header in Las Vegas, with the Sydney Roosters facing the Brisbane Broncos, and the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles taking on the South Sydney Rabbitohs on 2 March 2024.

How will the TV show ‘Footy Player to NFL Star’ work?
25-30 contestants will pass through mental, physical and tactical tests in extreme locations, with the top 12 advancing to face challenges set by the top NFL coaches and players, with one player eliminated each week until one winner is left standing!
Along the way, the global audience will get to see locations in Australia and places of origin of athletes (New Zealand, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Papua Guinea) as well as personal stories (as hobbies, family, education, knowledge) of where each has come from and why they want to play NFL.
There will be specific challenges depending on the position as quarterback, wide receiver, tight end and centre. The final three athletes will go to the USA to go through the final challenge to train with a professional team and be considered for a draft pick in the NFL.
The winners will get a College football scholarship or a place in a second division NFL team (subject to feasibility discussion). This is a money-can’t buy experience for young Aussie footy players.
We believe it’s feasible for the USA NFL headquarters to accommodate one winner every year as it is beneficial for the game and promotes it AROUND THE WORLD and influences children to watch NFL, follow their favourite team and one day even become a champion or win the Super Bowl final!
The reality show will have 15-25 episodes. The show will broadcast every year. Any subsequent shows will update the progress of the winners of previous series and have exciting features added depending on the audience demands.
After approval of the show to go ahead, we will announce auditions for potential contenders. We are going to have many athletes to choose every year for many years to come.
I will publish and promote this letter on the homepage on my website www.aussiegoal.com and Aussie-Goal! social media as per copyright requirements.
I am presenting this new Reality NFL TV show series by emailing the direct contacts of the leading American TV sport channels and reality TV production companies to find a way to collaborate with the NFL head office to make this show possible and successful.
The show will embrace a strong relationship between our people and countries, and has the potential to be one of the biggest rating shows in every country that plays rugby (England, South Africa, Ireland, France, Italy, Georgia and Argentina) and will be beneficial for the continuous development of footy in Australia and Oceania. Another aim of the show is to engage more American supporters of Australian National sports competitions.
I am seeking your interest in piloting this groundbreaking original show. If there is anyone from American TV networks who would be interested in such a show please let me know via email or phone.
