I've noticed that Australia is pretty unpopular with some folk here

I think it has  to do with all the Oceania Olympic places it very.easily gets ??

It does gives Australia a huge Olympic team .

Ironic that when they do compete for a much harder to gain Asian place they are again complained about

It's the difference between Europe and Asia. Europe tends to benefit from a combined Asia/Oceania (the old Oceania quotas will go to the overall pool which is usually won by a European nation) while Asia will be hurt as you are essentially adding an overall top 10 nation (plus New Zealand) into the mix.

 

The lose/lose scenario is what we have in football where Australia adds more competition to Asia while Oceania still retains its quota. Well, everyone loses except Australia who made the move to AFC so that it can be exposed to more talent.

I believe Australia mainly switched to Asia to make their WC qualification path easier.

 

Olympics were very much an afterthought, which is unfortunate for their women...
