[quote="bullants"]I'd presume the only reason the Bendigo final is Friday night is due to the ground being unavailable over the weekend? If this is the case then the VFL is breaking one of the guidelines that they set out in the footy record two weeks ago.[/quote] I'd suggest that it was always going to be a Friday night because that is the road Bendigo is tring to promote. They will probably get a thousand more theatregoers heading home from work or the shops on the Friday night, and they view is probably that if they can get them, they will come back.

Dont know that I missed the point at all Dolphin . Think you might have missed mine though. I was simply trying to point out that matty had every right to feel DISAPPOINTED at the clash of the game with his AFL side's game. I know you cant get your head around the concept of anyone being interested in BOTH compettions , but it happens mate...it happens. As for the VFL decision to have Werribee playing in Bendigo after finishing on top , we're actually on the same side on that one. I have never supported the concept of 'best fit' finals venues as practised by the VFL .....even in the past when Box Hill has benefitted and I'm on the record as saying that at the time.

No Richo, I'm happy that he has a right to be dissapointed. My point was simply that the clash alone was not a reason for the Bendigo thing being wrong. I actually have an interest in 5 competitions, but if they clash, then I too might be dissapointed but I can't expect it all to fit for me all the time. Thats all. Just pointing out that there are much bigger reasons for the fixturing sucking than a minor clash between differant competitions.

Some could say the VFL is a joke, this is getting out of hand. So now i pay the same price as i would for a final to see Werribee 2s play but dont get to stick around and watch a really good vfl final.

You might want to ring your club to confirm that, but normally Reserves fixtures played on a seperate day to the seniors is normally a gates-open setup.

Can confirm that ons , no charge for entry to the Werribee - Box Hill game on Saturday at Chirnside Park. And bogan , for what it's worth I think every VFL supporter feels for you guys this weekend.
