With the AFL bye before finals, can we expect some good size crowds for the Richmond v Collingwood and Essendon v Footscray games?

 

The Bombers normally have a good following come September in the VFL, and with them squeezing into the AFL finals this year there should be plenty of interest... Same goes for Richmond!

I will be at Williamstown on Saturday and box hìll on sunday. Hoping for the old vfa firm to win and progress to the preliminary final. Williamstown should beat casey at home by a few goals. Port Melbourne to replicate their win at box hill 2 weeks ago with another win. No interest in the other 2 all afl reserves games. Want a vfa grand final willy v port a true vfa flavour. That would really piss off the vfl grim reaper and co and all the afl head honchos. The 2 games at port with all afl reserves teams will get decent crowds though. Agree on that north port.

Do me a favour George. Press the edit button and change your Port prediction. I don't like it when you predict Port in finals, the last time you correctly predicted a Port finals result was probably 2011 !

37 times Grand finalists
16 times premiers
21 times runners up - THE MIGHTY BOROUGH!

I'M PORT MELBURNE BORN,
I'M PORT MELBOURNE BRED,
I'LL BE PORT UNTIL I'M DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Willy should but a much harder gig for Port at Box Hill esp as Box Hill/Hawthorn seconds get a lot of players back who have played in the 1st this season I think we will most likely end up with a Willy/ Richmond v Box Hill GF

Noted as usual the VFL (sic) have dropped the ball on the AFL free weekend with the usual lack of publicity when apart from a couple of bullshit AFL TV sponsered games - the shelias game and the hit and giggle whitten crap there is NO real footy on .

Both of which will most likely out draw the entire VFL finals games this weekend! = just sad.

Box Hill only get one player back, Ryan Shoenmakers. From the previous meeting 2 weeks ago, Jones and Switkowski will probably be missing due to injury. Port are a chance. Hoping to see Willy do a job on Casey. Not convinced about the Dees away from Casey Fields.

Hopefully Fortburn Oval is packed for both elimination finals.

I would not watch one second of the Whitten game plus the women's game. No interest whatsoever. There is plenty of good local footy all over the state. It is not all about the AFL.
I will be at Williamstown on Saturday and Box Hill on Sunday. Williamstown will win against Casey and will win quite easy. Casey Melbourne seconds will be like their senior counterparts no heart. Williamstown are travelling very well and at home are even a tougher nut to to crack which will be beyond Casey. The seagulls are very well balanced all over the ground and will get revenge on a bad loss to Casey in last years final series.
Box Hill will get some players back but the VFL team that have seen their AFL teams not make the final series have not quite got that momentum and spirit. Port and Box Hill do have a ripper rivalry in recent years. Chris Jones will be a big loss as will Switowski as Burraburger stated. Shoenmakers will be handy. Port will be very eager to progress to the Prelim and even at Box Hill reckon they will repeat the dose from a fortnight ago.
Richmond v Collingwood and Essendon v Footscray will both be packed. Both games are very even and hard to pick. Collingwood pipped Richmond at Punt Road recently and will no doubt have Kayle Kirby back after his debut last week. Interesting to see which players play for Richmond. Essendon v Footscray toss of a coin as well. t least 2 of the AFL teams will be eliminated and hopefully the 2 VFA teams are in the Preliminary Finals after the weekend.
