Printable version of the website (in place of a footy record)

Just wondering if people thought it would be worth doing.

Basically it would print all the weeks articles and maybe some more mature forum threads out as a footy record.. It just would need the playing lists as a centre page.

I think the legality of reprinting articles might be an issue. I'm not sure.

But would it be of interest to any of you out there?

Good idea North Port.
We could produce a proper record from this site with a few contributors.

(1) Team selections for all clubs which is done anyway.
(2) Ladders
(3) Goal kickers
(4) Seasons fixtures
(5) Blast from the past column, plenty of contributors there. We can go a long way back as well.
(6) Previews and selections. Maybe use Robbo's preview and we could all have our selections with a quick summary.
eg Box Hill v PORT. Borough should be able to sneak over the line to make it back to back wins. Maybe just like Paul Amy does,a quick sentence summary.
(7) Club News. Plenty of contributors as I think all clubs would be covered.
(8) Any photos taken from the previous round to be added on with the results from last weeks round. Easy to send/email jpegs.
(9) Weekly guest from ex player/coach from the old days. Contact an ex player with a small write up on career in VFA/VFL and memories of yesteryear. I think between the lot of us we should be able to muster at least one guest per week for the remainder of the year.
(10) VFL tipping results to be added as well. Easy to do this North Port once I send the results.

VFLfooty weekly football recorder

Stuff the official record we could do a better one online between the lot of us.

Any thoughts ? I know I can easily send selections, old VFA blasts from the past and email any photos that I do take from vfl matches from the previous round.
Is this worth a shot ?

Once compiled it could be easily printed. I don't think we would be breaking any rules as we are not selling anything.

It does sound like a good idea, however, the problem will be the time involved.

You can print the team lists from the online record and read the online articles on your phone at the game.

You would have to ask them as they don't read this site. If they did, they would know that the Record is considered rubbish by VFL supporters.

And if they did read this site they would also know that VFL supporters dislike the way the competition is being run down. Yet it would be so easy for it to be properly run - by people truly interested in promoting the league in its own right and not subserviant to the AFL.

Really, if we did our own Record they would not know about it.
