Robbo im not doubting your information but could you please post where you found that info ? I looked in the VFL website and they haven't made that public.
VFA regarding Richmond it has been in the media, last I saw it was on the TV. If the competition goes ahead it will be the only time I know of a competition playing without the previous year winner.

Moorabbin VFA premier in 1963 did not play in 1964
It is in the news VFL comp suspended until further notice. It is not gone for the year. Like many sporting events world wide suspended, on hold plus wait and see approach.
Channel 7 , SEN , 3AW have reported it this morning
It is to be expected but what will be the flow on for the stand-alone clubs. They rely so heavily on their football operations to generate the funds needed to survive. But we must all be aware and careful.
God bless all involved as I am sure they have the best interests of players, coaches, staff and supporters in mind.
We do live in challenging times. Stay safe. Be careful
Big challenge for everyone not just the sporting clubs. We've never experienced anything like this before. Spot on seagull90. Stay safe and be very patient. Also stay positive.
AFL more than likely will be suspended by later tonight or tomorrow or the latest by tomorrow. McLaughlan has been slammed left right and centre as pressure mounts. Players association are having talks and likelihood no games for several weeks.
AFL press conference to take place in a hour, I'm going with you VFA, competition suspended, which is the only decision that makes sence considering the VFL cancellation.
To suspend the VFL and allow the AFL to play would send a message that the AFL has more concern in their 2nd tier group and could be seen as favoritism of one group of players over others. Considering that the AFL wouldn't want to be seen as giving preferential treatment to one group, i'm selling my 10 Greek palaces and putting all my money on the AFL being suspended as well.
Afl will cop it world wide especially if they try to cram 5 games in 3 weeks. How selfish pigheaded can they be ? They wont be playing round one. Players association will put a stop to it. The vfl has been postponed since May 31 the afl should do likewise. The main state wide leagues, afl, wafl, sanfl, neafl, tfl, nrl, super rugby have to postponed their comps to may 31. No ifs and buts. Be consistent throughout. Peoples health comes first. As for public transport not sure what should be done as people have to work and rely on it. Some people can work from home.
At a guess you would think that the competition won't resume on May 31 as that will be when the virus peaks. If we are concerned now their should be even greater concern come late May early June.
