Werribee, Willy, Port and Coburg for the top four. These four will be miles ahead of the rest. Hard to judge Frankston, going with kids again ths year and on paper may not be quite as good as last year. Box Hill to be competitive but Sandy and Casey will really struggle.

Think you are spot on with the top 4 Bearsman. Werribee definitely team to beat. Port and Coburg to battle for third spot. I think the dolphins can win some games and get to fifth spot. Been a while since Frankston have beaten Box Hill. This year they will break the long drought. Hope it is played at Frankston where the locals can enjoy a rare win over Box Hill. The 3 aligned teams will struggle a bit and a lot depends on who they recruit to fill in for the squads. Since the EFL and NFL are not going ahead there must be some local players hanging out for a game. They could unearth some surprise packets that are up to the standard. Looking forward for the fixture when it comes out to see who plays where and work out what games I will attend. Will have to wait for Mr Andrews to give the all clear to go to the footy so I can join a few beers.

I think it is way too early to say how the teams will finish.Its a season like no other that any of us has experienced and I expect some shocks along the way.Maybe they should go back to 16 a side like the womens game.

 Best suggestion I've heard yet Billy!

Standalone VFA teams with no AFL and if we can get a 16 a side comp will seem like the good old days of the VFA..
Reverting to 16 a side definitely won't hurt.

Does anyone know for sure if the VFL will have the shortened quarters this year? I'm guessing we will but havent heard anything.

For that matter does anyone know the reason for the short quarters?

Robbo

Yes there will be shorter quarters. 
 

fixture will hopefully be known by end of next week

The Richmond v Collingwood game last night was very ordinary. The short quarters are trash.
Not sure if the VFL will have short quarters as well. No reason why they should.
In fact I haven't heard anything about the length of the quarters at local footy level either.
Chelsea has pulled the pin on the MPFL and now placed a big doubt on the whole comp.
Some clubs and numerous players whose leagues are not playing are very eager to have a game of footy.
I see Waverley Blues who play in the EFL are desperate to play and might join another league as EFL pulled the pin. Think Blackburn are in the same boat.

Bearsman that Sheila yesterday who was commentating (don't know her name) said that the shorter quarters are just in case theirs a outbreak of the virus down the track as they believe it to be safer to play a shorter amount of time. I know, doesn't make sence to me as well. 

Looks like crowds will be returning with Scomo saying ticketed sporting events can have up to 1,000 people attend. The conditions are fans to be seated, ground venues to not exceed 25% of their capacity, and the 4 square metre rule is in place. This news while not a perfect scenario is good news for fans and gives hope of further easing of restrictions.
