State representative footy - Big V

Are we any chance of seeing the VFL (VFA) represented again? The SANFL and WAFL are continuing the tradition but it seems like this competition is A) not competitive and B) too disorganisdd.

I'd like to be proven wrong.

Last time it appeared that we didn't take it seriously. I think that it won't be coming back any time soon. I'd rather have a knockout interstate club competition, like the ffa cup. 16 sides with 4 teams each from vic, wa, sanfl and 4 sides from the rest of Australia . Win 4 games straight be crowned best club in Australia outside the AFL !

I like the idea MegaA.  The Foxtel Cup was an interesting concept, but there were very mixed priorities when it was being played during the home and away season.

Excellent crowd, we must be doing something wrong, last state match was only in the hundreds and from some reports not much more than 200 !
