VFL season on verge of being cancelled

Victoria will go into 7 day lockdown from 8pm tonight 

this means no games next 2 weekends and the likelihood of the season being cancelled

Might as well go straight into finals when we get out of lockdown whenever that is.

It won't be 7 days. There is always add ons. More like several weeks.

AFL no chance of finals in Melbourne. Looks like Perth will get finals.

Might as well play all VFL finals in Perth too as well as NRL finals.

Expect this season the be cancelled. As mentioned before the odds are this lockdown will be 2 weeks plus. Andrews said today the benchmark for future lockdowns is now 5 mystery cases, so expect many more lockdowns until 80% vaccinations is achieved. He also said, he is willing to put the state into hard lockdown until 80% vaccination if they cant get the numbers down from this outbreak. That could be well into next year if Morrison is lying again about the number of vaccinations we are to receive,

Not looking good.

This made up unfair comp needs to be put out of its misery!

If we are locked down for several weeks expect all local leagues as well as the vfl to go straight to finals. Teams lucky enough to be in the finals spot now you will be playing finals. Most league would have between 3 or 4 weeks left before finals.

I say play finals with the ladder as it is......I got no problem with that haha

Seriously though, I think if you asked players across the board in the VFL and in local comps, they would prefer finals were played than have a half season count for nothing.

Hundred percent. Enough games played to go straight to finals.

We are no certainty to even have finals. Paul Amy is reporting that the AFL has asked Andrews for an exmption to allow VFL and VFLW matches to go ahead. Pretty sure they have asked before and got knocked back.

Nothing on the VFL official site about cancellations. Maybe they could get an exemption. Highly unlikely but who knows ??

There are only 6 games that would have been played at Werribee, Carlton, Punt Road, Casey, Coburg and Port Melbourne. Only 4 caes in Melbourne overnight which is a small positive if you call it that. At least have been watching the Olympics which gives us something to watch at nights. Even watched rock climbing last night. Didn't even know thsat this was an Olympic sport for the first time. Poor kookaburras lost the final to Belgium. Being so close they were shattered.
