VFL v WAFL - Official match discussion thread

How do you feel about the squad selected?

My knowledge is nowhere near as good as most of you posting here, but I'm happy with the selections from Port Melbourne.

 

I think on a ground like Port if we play a physical contested style of game, we will be well placed to knock the WAFL over.  I note that there are less Victorians in the WAFL state side than in the last 2 or 3 times we've played them.

 

I'm tipping a 4 goal win to the Vics.  Looking forward to the game!

Mrs Blackrocker & I will attend. I have no knowledge of the WA form, so I don' t know how the game will flow. I think these interstate games are held too early in the season. Maybe time to consider a different venue, how about a night game at Footscray or Punt Rd.

Gates Open at 12:30pm

No radio coverage by any VFL or WAFL station.

 

I will be there before going to Footscray.

 

LOVE STATE FOOTY

Going by the crowd of a few hundred ( there used to be more at VFA U19 matches at North Port) I was 100% correct about the total lack of interest in the match by both the media and the football public in Melbourne.

I would rather see the VFL spend this money on the clubs or junior football than paying a few hack footballers not good enough for the AFL/AFL reserves getting paid

The vfl was disgraceful in front of a very average crowd. More noise by the wafl supporters. Very ordinary day.

Disappointing performance from the VFL; they did not live up to the claim of "'second best comp"

You cant be the second best when you can only play the third best players.

Its rediculous that the players playing today DO NOT represent the real standard of the VFL week to week

They are claiming a 500 today crowd which in itself is a disgrace - they must have counted them twice!

I just hope AFL Victoria stop wasting time and money on these nothing games.

 

St Kilda seconds are getting a gecent kicking as expected from Footscray/WB seconds at the western Oval tonight about 10 goals down ATM

 Crowd about 1500

that was the most insipid performance from a state team. AFL Victoria need to look at the coach, selectors and all positions.

Vfl were utter trash. One of the most pathetic state games i have seen. Good luck for the sandgropers as they were far better but seriously vfl would have struggled against the eastern football league. A handful of players for the vics were ok and battled hard but overall game by the vics was garbage

Embarrassing. Look I love state footy and Victoria, but when that kind of performance is served up.. On the back of recent poor results it is very hard to watch and does the honour of wearing the Big V no service at all.

If we are going to be competitive the process for state squad selection needs to start during the practice matches and they should be training 3 weeks out, so a game plan and knowledge of team mates is sorted out.

Lucky there was bugger all promotion, because the game did not live up to what should be a bug occasion.

The Vice persisted in a style of play that wasn't working right up to the final siren. A string of handballs and short kicks would end in a shocking turnover, and be countered by one booming kick. The team chosen had no answer to the style of play of a bigger bodied, aggressive team. Where to from here? Better and longer preparation for a match is a must.
Bitterly disappointing!
