After VFL's being smashed by WAFL is this the final straw?
With issues with It's VFL stand alone clubs the league has been on a downward path for a while. Was last Saturday's game an indiction the VFL is at the end that we all fear.
AFL don't seem to care about community(state league) football anymore with so much money going to teams like Gold Coast and GWS Giants. Surely it about time the AFL stepped in to help community football like VFL.
It seems with issues at Frankston, North Ballarat and Port Melbourne over the past 12-24 months. AFL Victoria seem to not care about VFL(especially if state game was an indictation). I think it about time the AFL and AFL Victoria need to sit down with all clubs and fix from what seems to be a lot of problems with league to give it a sustainable future which includes state league representation.
Lets try and bring VFL back to where it should be as the 2nd best state league in the country as currently sits probably 4th best league sliding behind the WAFL and SANFL. Just ahead of NEAFL.
I have been around this compeition in some way since it started in 2000. It is sorry to see the competition is in such a state and if it not fixed soon I fear where it could end up in the next few years.
