The VFL salary cap is $185,000 so I'm not sure what you would consider overpaid? That wouldn't even cover Wojinskis wage for the season. Blokes don't play VFL to get rich, sounds like a comment from a sour Williamstown fan..

Even in SA with double the cap blokes can earn more in the amateurs or country

West Torrens formed 1895 (merged woodville 1991)
Port Melbourne formed 1874

Too many handball turnovers by Port.
The ABC tv totally ignored the TAC GF.

Very high standard game...good crowd...lots of noise...congratulations to Geelong...and to ex Sandy player Mark Corrigan getting a winners medal...Port Melbourne can hold their heads high after that performance...when you kick badly as Geelong did, you wonder if it would come back to haunt them, but 13 scoring shots to one on the last 1/4 snuffed out any chance Port had..

Geelong too good on the day. Congratulations to the them, thoroughly deserved, I thought they were terrific and if they had kicked straight could have won by about 10 goals.

Full credit to Port for battling it out. It wasn't to be, but the players stuck at it and can take plenty out of it for experience in years to come. We struggled against the talls of Geelong, who got first use of the ball. Our backline did a remarkable job considering the pressure they were under.

Bentick who missed out last year was prolific early and was Port's dominant midfielder. Quite a few skill errors from the Borough but that is in part due to the pressure the Cats put on us.

So our rebuilding starts again at Port. We need a 200cm+ ruckman, as Skipper and Bonaddio were clearly outgunned, against a 206cm Dawson and 201cm Stephenson.

Great to see so many get back to the club after the game and all very upbeat about the result.

Lots of changes off-field at the Borough with the redevelopment starting in just 2 weeks. Hopefully we keep the core of the group together and just add to the deficiencies that will be identified in 2012.

Go Borough!

It was hard but used my favorite method and smuggled 8 stubbies into the game today.

You could see why Valenti didnt make it at AFL level he is only a very good VFL player and Ive always thought the the VFA/NOW VFL GF is about the same pressure of a normal AFL match but under that sort of pressure today he was found wanting on a number of occiasions and looked pretty slow.

On todays result Geelong were just the better/fitter team with Port just hanging in there for 2/12 quarters.

One would think that some of the older Port players will hang up the boots so they will need to do some good recruiting over the summer.
