It's hard to have any enthusiasm about these games. Let's hoping the competition is better (and not bigger) in 2023.

I agree and they are being played at shit grounds with no atmosphere or crowds.

Very unfinals like but then again it is an oversized unwieldy shit comp made up for the convenience of the senior AFL clubs!

The Carlton v Collingwood game at Vic Park last Sunday looked OK from what I saw but these games in QLD look ordinary - the ground Brisbane v Carlton is being played at today looks like it's being played in the countryside somewhere and the crowd looks dismal but there are a few people on the opposite side of the ground and they are making a bit of noise as Carlton mounts their comeback.

wow, what an amazing last quarter in the Brisbane v Carlton game - the Blues had 29 inside 50's in the last quarter and kicked 3.8 while Brisbane had just 2 inside 50's for two goals - at the 29 minute mark and the 31 minute mark - looked like extra time for sure but the Lions got up by two goals - poor old Carlton, pipped on the post yet again :-)

sorry, 24 inside 50's to 3 in the last quarter and 16 more for the game to the Blues who still managed to lose ;-)

Yeah I watched a bit of today's game at Blacktown. No atmosphere and it looks like an unloved local ground. 

I watched the last quarter of the Essendon versus Carlton game.

Excellent crowd and the atmosphere was a hell of lot better than the VFL finals this weekend.

Today watched a ripper game powelltown v kinglake grand final at healesville. Powelltown last flag 1989 v kinglake last flag 1994. Very good crowd and fantastic atmosphere. Powelltown won by 10 points. Yesterday went to Moorabbin to watch Cheltenham v Cranbourne in 2nd semi. Next Saturday will watch east ringwood v mooroolbark at boronia in gf and next Sunday south belgrave v ringwood gf at Mitcham. I will go to the vfl gf as long as southport are in there. It could be an all QLD grand final if Casey loses. Enjoying the local footy finals something we have missed in last few years. The vfl gf will no way have the atmosphere and vibe there was in today's outer east gf at healesville.

The VFL GF should be at Port Melbourne, the atmosphere would be brilliant and the game would be physical and tight, how you want a GF. Unfortunately, there is an AFLW game scheduled there on that Sunday so it was never an option.

Sad that there aren't VFL finals at Port this year, that has very much been the September identity of the comp for a long time, and the size of the ground and the atmosphere has really helped make those finals series.

Hopefully with the increase in salary cap, and another year removed from being shut down by the govt (which has been the biggest impact on stand alone clubs) there will be more Vic representation in the finals next year. I think there will.

Brisbane Lions edged out Carlton in the Smithy's VFL 2nd semi-final at Red Rooster Park on Saturday. Here's my match report, as well as last week's teams announcement and match preview.
