Where Bendigo v N Blues?

Northern Blues want "as many supporters as possible travelling up to Echuca when we take on Bendigo."
I hope they stop by the QEO in Bendigo on the way, because that's where the game has been moved.

Thank God it's been moved. Going to Swan Hill was bad enough...

All for the promotion of the game Goldie.
The Roosters went to Morwell a couple of years back for a home & away game, to Tassie a few times & to Perth for Foxtel cup match.

It is around 360 km return trip by car from my place to Box Hill. I did not go there this season. It is around 572 km return trip to Swan Hill, and a lot easier to get to!!
(Mrs Cobrascorer and I spent two nights in a motel in Swan Hill. I was not 'up' health-wise to do the Pioneer Museum or tourist things.)
I also attended the past years' games in Stawell and Morwell, but never got to games in Tassie.

I have watched vfl games all over the place Goldie. Stawell, Morwell, Shepparton, Wangaratta, Torquay, Devonport etc
Nothing wrong with promotion of the VFL comp and great for the country areas watching football at VFL level.
Pity there is no game at Colac or Echuca this year both moved from original fixture. Hopefully these towns will see VFL action next year.

The Foxtel Cup is a complete waste of time.
Going to Tassie for VFL games is also a waste of time and resources.
Bendigo Gold should be playing at the best venue available, and that wasn't Swan Hill, and definitely not Echuca.

You don't forget "Rocker".
The BEST venue was certainly NOT bloody Bendigo !!
Everybody knows what the BEST venue is so it's futile trying to argue.
Tasmania were very good for the competition & I personally miss the trips over there. Unsure of what resources were wasted. Bring them back I say.

Why people went to Tassie for VFL games was not for 'promotional' matches but was when Tasmania had a team in the VFL last decade.
There must be extra costs in playing at a neutral country ground. With the very poor attendances at these places, possibly apart from Torquay, it does not appear to be a valuable move. VFL attendances at home grounds do not increase as a result of visits elsewhere. They still remain well below what the standard of footy justifies.

digs, are you saying Eureka Stadium is the best? Cold hellhole. LOL

Bendigo is the best for Bendigo I meant.
