You will also be hoping that your prediction is wrong.

Sorry but I dont really care anymore the comp is so compromised does it matter who wins? For a half decent crowd at the GF the VFL(sic) would want the two AFL seconds teams there.

Just to blow the myth that this is First reserves GF footscray reserves yes aka Footscray VFL won the AFL reserves premiership in 1998!

So much anti Afl sentiment from this forum - I personally like playing agianst the big boys and defeating them (most of the time). Considering the major anti AFL sentiment is it time to break way and play our own VFA competition ?

Barracking for the VFL team isnt the same thing as wanting the AFL sides thrown out. Watching Port play at Windy Hill this year was really good.

But the McEvoy situation was a farce. As a saints supporter in the AFL perhaps it grates a bit more.

I think this weekend we've seen the struggle. Both VFL/VFA teams highly competitive, but couldn't quite win the big moments. I'm not sure what they do about it, given we've seen that both Port and Willy have very good sides as it is.

hmmmmmmm interesting point. I just think this weekend (in my humble opinion) it was not the stand alone teams day. We hit a couple of posts, kicked inaccurately. Had those two posts gone in and our kicking slightly better then perhaps we would be commenting on next week for POrt instead of next year. Williamstown was strong all day and got ahead and fought them so hard. Put up a great fight indeed. It realy could of gone ether way. I think that if this weeks fixture was played again this weekend - it could easily be 2 games to the vfa clubs and 0 for the afl big boys. Not a criticism to yourself but every time a stand alone Vfa side does not win the competition people cry out - we were robbed its too hard - but we have agin showed this year (with 2 of the last 4 teams being stand alone vfa sides) that it can be done.

Having said that though - I think it is fair to say that it will always be up to Port and Wily to hold the stand alone flag high as can't see the other stand alone teams being competitive in the finals.

Thank you Paul. I would love to be proven wrong on that one. I'd like to see a very competitive Frankston and Coburg. I think the league needs a competitive Frankstonand- if you believe the reports from Frankston then they would probably be the best supported club if they were strong on field.
