Major problems for season 2015.
You can't read the bloody thing.
PRINT FAR TOO SMALL.

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

I agree with digs as above. Full team lists not supplied, eg Number 40 for Roosters.
Match day lists need to be bold and clear.

Radio list needs clarification as to when RPH stations are broadcasting VFL matches. They did not broadcast on Sunday as claimed.

I mainly buy it for the team lists, but print is too small and the space they give to record goals is ludicrously small. They dont need to include the players previous club.

Someone needs to group these concerns and send them to the VFL before the loonies fully take over as has occurred with the put out crap like the unreadable fixtures etc. of the last few seasons. This is despite numerous complaints-- the nuts there still went ahead with over-colouring waste card and paper, fit only for recycling.

I didn't get the Round 1 Record, but as far as Round 2 is concerned:

- No tipsters
- Development league scores stuffed up

I thought there was a lot less content than last year and all in all a disappointing drop in standard.

I posted this to the VFL Facebook site:

G'day VFL. Regarding this years VFL Footy record, I have a couple of comments to make that I hope you will take on board. Overall the Record has been really good however: The current team lists layout is terrible! The traditional layout used in years gone by is far more useful. As it currently stands, it looks like a quick copy and paste of an excel spreadsheet. There is only enough room to mark a couple of goals in the box. For the Senior game, you only need Number / Name / Goals / Behinds. All the other stats cango on the clubs full list (Which I noticed was missing in this weeks record). I arrived in time to watch the Development League match, only to find that the majority of those playing weren't listed at all. (At the Port Melb v Carlton game). The other issue is that the font is far too small to easily read. I realise that space is an issue to try and fit everything in, but perhaps the font could go up a couple of sizes to make reading it easier.

A big improvement in the team layouts this week looking much more like a traditional list for marking down goals. Good to see the VFL responding to feedback.

Yes, they replied and said they would try improve the layout. They made a minor change the following week, and a major revamp this week.
