Last vfa game played at Oakleigh was an ABC clash between Springvale v Box Hill in the mid 90s. 11/5/1996 Springvale v Box Hill played at Oakleigh

[quote=digs][quote=comeng]If the reverse fixture is played a TBBO Port will loose a home TV game which I think is unfair. Sandringham should find a suitable neutral ground or forfeit the 4 points. It is not Port Melbourne's fault that Sandringham can't get their ground right.[/quote]

Billy.....Any comments ????

Good teams win at all grounds and in any conditions.

BTW I cant believe the shit condition the Beach Oval surface has become.Who would have ever believed a game could be shifted from what was one of the best surfaces in Melbourne?
Does the club or council look after the maintainence now?

[quote=zebra]Many a great Sandy v Oakleigh (purple people eaters) was played at the Warrawee Park Oval in the past . The Oaks had a very good staunch following then , but we aren't playing them anymore.
Expect this Sandy Port Reserve game to be a good game also.[/quote]

The problem Oakleighs ground had along with many of the old VFA grounds like Box Hill,Preston,Coburg Dandenong,Brunswick and Northcote was that during wet winters they became absolute bog holes.
I dont think the todays players would have a clue how to play in those conditions and maybe wouldnt be allowed to anyway due to current O&H rules.
