VFL vs. SANFL '08
Do we know the dates yet? I noticed tiger airlines had some $10 flights with $19 return on a particular weekend the other day, if we knew the date we could start to have a look for a good deal!

But can not be confirmed until either fixture comes out. The VFL fixture is still a month away.

Well I think you guys will be in for a shock you aint playing it at football park or Adelaide oval. State footy being played at a suburban ground this is one for the books :lol: .I will be there barracking for the mighty croweaters . And I wonder how many expats will be playing for the reds this year :wink:

You guys will get a shock when you watch footy at norwood oval :lol: :lol: Just be greatful you didn't agree to play SA at Elizabeth Oval :wink: cheers

Not my favourite oval in adelaide to watch footy .Three sides of the oval are surrounded by Grandstands One of these sides is the boundary .Have watched guys run into the brickwall of the members stand over my years of watching footy The fourth side is all concrete and bitumen. And on a cold winters day a place not to be.If it was at night its so much colder due to the hills in the background. The last time SA and Vic played each other was at Adelaide oval .the ground is perfect at Adelaide not so at places like norwood be even worse after another year of drought and water restrictions. At least you aren't playing SA at Alberton or Elizabeth then you would find out the meaning of FERAL FOOTBALL FANS. Cheers And enjoy the loss :wink:

What I was trying to say in a very long winded way is Norwood oval or coopers stadium is a HOLE . Plus trying to get at you guys :wink:

i don't know what mickyj is on about (too much wrestling), i like going to norwood oval to watch footy, it has a great atmosphere, great food (better than most other ovals) & it is similar to port melbournes oval as far as size goes & for you blokes over there it is about 10 minutes from the city, it'll be hard to find a car park space with shopping etc on that day & you miss out on the talent parade you get at a night game because a lot of girls go to the footy before going out it is great viewing :wink:

Cold weather....feral fans....the VFL won't stand a chance!!!...we play in warm sunshine every week and the fans here politely applaud when the opposition scores a goal Maybe we could get a few of the lads from the hill at Frankston to get along to Norwood...
