Time for a Channel 9 virtual crowd.

One of the worst semi-finals crowds in a long time.

The reserves game crowd was about this in size.

Hope there's an improvement tomorrow.

Casey had a red hot go and never gave up when all was lost. They fell just short.

Casey Scorpions 3.1 5.5 6.6 9.6 (60)
Northern Bullants 6.3 8.6 10.7 10.11 (71)

Terrible conditions today for football. The first quarter went for about 37 minutes. Casey gave it a red hot go in the last but the damage was done. Casey did have a number of kids playing for them today with a few having played less than 10 VFL games.

Crowd... hmmmmm

Last year's Collingwood semi drew 1,850 and the Port v Box Hill final 1,500.

The semi-final today drew under 1,200 I'm told!

Last weeks game wasnt much better and it wasnt pissing down.As I said before the VFA thirds used to get bigger crowds.I went past Chirnside Park today and the WFL had a very good crowd.

Certainly not the coaches fault. The Scorpions just flatly refused to follow Brad Gotch's instructions not to play pretty football.
The Bullants set the win up in the first quarter by kicking the ball as long as possible & not relying on short hand passes & kicks, even when they were a remote chance late in the game the Scorps still messed around with the ball.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green
