Pass for me too. No chance whatsoever. The only games I will attend will have to include at least one VFA team Port, Willy, Frankston, Coburg, Preston or Werribee.

I cannot find anywhere online the VFL results for round 2 that has goalkickers and best players. 

Easy enough to find the scores, but goalkickers and best players ??

Haven't checked today's herald sun. Wouldn't hold my breath though.

Wally - Sandringham last played the the MCG  for premiership points on Saturday the 19th of July 1986 and beat Brunswick by 37 pts

The match was part of a VFA double header the other match was Coburg v Frankston h which Coburg won by 19pts

Mark Jacko Jackson who had played a few games for Brunswick and was supposed to be the big drawcard but pulled out a couple of days before the match and it killed the crowd that ended up being only 6253.

So I did go to the other two matches at the G  but I don't have to go on Sunday as it is on CH 7 live and with an 85 in TV it is way better to watch on the big screen for an old bastard like me!.

I was at that game in 1986. Stayed for both the Sandringham v Brunswick and Frankston v Coburg games.

I have gone to a couple of Foxtel cup games at the MCG in recent years. Williamstown v Apsley and Port Melbourne v West Adelaide.

Port Melbourne v West Adelaide was the worst! Cold, freezing night with Port fielding a 2nd side for the match. Great idea from foxtel that never really took off like their foxtel cup soccer comp which is known to bring in the masses towards the final rounds.
