just checked, its half-way between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast - isn't Southport on the Gold Coast?
With today’s results next week will be first time ever all finals will be played outside in Victoria in 145 year history of the competiton.
what if the GF is played between two interstate teams at Princes Park? Unless one or both of the combatants has their AFL side here in Melbourne contesting the finals, I'm predicting a very sparse crowd. And if Southport make it then the crowd will be even smaller as their supporters didn't even bother going to today's game at the Moreton Bay Complex judging by the size of the crowd on the livestream - this is looming as a major embarrassment for the VFL/AFL and if it's a cold, wet day ......
Go Southport sharks. Hope they smash the afl teams. Good win against Brisbane. One win away from gf. Stuff all the afl teams. No reason why Southport can't go all the way. Even if they get a poor gf crowd as long as afl aligned team loses I'm happy. I'll go to the gf If Southport is in it. I went to a local game today south belgrave v ringwood at Mitcham. Good crowd and good game. Local footy again next week and the week after.
If you are on the Southport bandwagon George, maybe you could enquire about their creative use of the salary cap ALLEGEDLY
Glasshouses and stones.
Errrrr Williamstown's salary cap breach was miniscule in comparison to what is alleged to be going on there
Southport have a lot of money so I suppose they need to spend it somehow!
I assume they have the same salary cap rules as the rest of the stand-alone teams
No idea but reckon they would be spending much more than the vfa teams. Probably not restricted to having 6 players under 23 either. Never been to the Southport club or ever seen them play. Seen a bit of their highlights on YouTube and look like a tough strong bodied team that move the ball quick. I wouldn't say I'm on their bandwagon but would rather them win this year being standalone. Reckon the neutrals would support them if they made it to the vfl gf. They were $6 to win flag on sportsbet this morning. Those odds would be halved now.
