Great VFA players who could have been superstars with the then VFL How many ex VFA players would have been great players in the VFL. They had potential to cut it but either did not have the attitude or commitment. Ian Rickman did ok in a few games with the dogs including a 7 goal haul on Keith Grieg as a 17 year old. Spider Shaw only played 2 games with Fitzroy which included a 5 goal haul. Rino Pretto played one game with the Roys but ended up a superstar in the VFA. There are many you could add to this list Fire away and see how many we could add to it. Wouldn't be a bad side either.
