Mega has just bought a 2020 South Melbourne Hellas season's ticket.
VFL will revert back to VFA in 2020.
Camberwell Cobras, Northcote Dragons, Yarraville Eagles, Sunshine Crows, Caulfield Bears, Dandenong Redlegs, Prahran Two Blues and Brighton Penguins have reformed and will be part of VFA second Division.
Round 5 will be known as the Phil Gibbs retro round where each club will nominate one player that will go toe to toe with his counterpart as soon as the siren starts to begin the game.
Each televised game will feature at half time the Norm Yemm Dandy Dollar Dash.
The Footscray Hyde street band will perform at Skinner Reserve and Yarraville Oval in 2020.
Hawthorn have changed their name for 2020 and the AFL team will know be known as the Box Hill mustangs effectively being Box Hill reserves.
Carlton will also change their name for 2020 an known as the Preston Bullants and be part of Preston seconds. The former AFL team Carlton will wear a tiny Carlton emblem (the size of a one cent piece) on the large bullant emblem.
Melbourne AFL team will change from the Demons to the Fuschias.
The former site of the Jolimont Railway yards will be ready for the 2020 season and be called East Melbourne CG and a replica of the ground from the early 1900s. Docklands will be bulldozed and turned into a vacant playground.

You can read this in Saturday's pink Sporting Globe as well as Friday's Herald. Listen out to the newspaper sellers outside Flinders Street with the catch cry HERALD FINAL EXTRA

Gillligan would go well as Pinnichio. Perfect fit LOL. If he was old enough would have been in Mike Williamson's show 'Tell the Truth'. It was on Ch7 back in the 60s.

It's fair to say that the changes will once again affect the stand alone clubs a lot more than the AFL / aligned clubs. Nothing positive to come out of the news.

Bullants yes thats one of the two major changes that will be introduced next year. Most VFl clubs last year used more than 38 players, Port used 46. Making it tougher every year for the stand alones.

The biggest change for 2020 will be Comeng who will be on the Williamstown FC board and will get rid of his I hate Williamstown badge and will promise to wear I love Williamstown badge, seagull beanie, scarf and top at all matches.
LOL

The biggest change will be that when Port once again gets the nod for VFL finals hosting, people will finally come to their senses and realise it's the best decision that could be made and will send emails to AFLVIC congratulating them on their great decision making skills.
