Go Southport !!! Hope they go all the way. Will be watching local footy this  weekend. Not sure what game though. Will check the match ups. Probably eastern footy league.

As as they say in marketing If you have to give your product away for free you are selling the wrong product.

Even with free entry I expect some pretty poor crowds this weekend!

Melbourne v Sydney seconds  at Cranbourne's Artic park Casey Fields anyone?I cannot believe this match was not played at North Port.

The only match that has potential to draw a decent crowd is the Collingwood V Carlton at Victoria Park depending on the weather.

They can offer me free beers, free entry, a free meal and I still wouldn't go to any of the vfl finals featuring afl reserves. No thanks. As for afl w interest is ZERO.  I'll support local footy finals over the next few weeks.

Crowd size of Melbourne seconds v swans at Casey even with free entry will be ordinary. Even less than ordinary if it a wet cold day. Free entry to Victoria park ? There are no fences which makes it free anyway. False advertising LOL

 A poor crowd at Casey on a pretty good day for Artic Park you would have thought with no AFL in Melbourne this weekend the Melbourne and former South Melbourne supporters would have been out in force. I bet most local comps have bigger crowds.

The sad thing is the AFLW quite often get bigger crowds to their matches at Casey Fields than a VFL final does.

It just goes to show how little interest there is in the VFL comp these days.

And if the VFL had as much publicity and media attention as the AFLW receives then that situation may well be reversed Billy

So true Wally but we all know where the AFLs priorities lay and it isn't with a trumped up reserves comp for the benefit of the AFL clubs and it is the  AFLW which cost the AFL $30 million in losses last season and still get crap crowds!

Just has a look at the two QLD teams and the crowd there is truly pathetic!

just watching it now Billy, there is probably more people there than what i expected - it would take Sydney longer to get from Tulla to Casey than what the flight from Sydney took. Good to see the Swans in their quasi-South jumper.

Blimey, where is the Moreton Bay Central Sports Complex? Looks like it's in the middle of nowhere - not surprising there is nobody there, or maybe the banana benders don't give a rat's arse
