VFL Development League - competition to finish



Recommended Posts

The Vfl is the AFL's reserves. Tne VAFA is not the next strongest comp,the EFL is based on the fact a combined EFL side beat the combined VAFA side las year. The VFL sides should have the same name as their AFL teams in Victoria and be referred to as the reserves. Country/Suburban clubs should be the bridging gap between the AFL and VFL and TAC teams. A player in the country/suburban league (capped number of players) should be able to  play AFL football. A draft like system get to pick which coutry/suburban side it will affiliate with.( possible to occur with more than one side),The existing draft system applies ********. 

The current draft system needs to be overhauled,what is ironic the dees with get a higher draft pick for 2018 and yet the HAWKS who have won three premiership in row will get a lower draft pick. What I would do is to give the worst performing placed team over the past past three years the no.1 pick followed by the next team. Brissy get no.1,Dees no.2,gc no.3 etc .

Get rid of free agency and clubs trading out their 1st draft picks.

Is this your job application for Simon Lethlean's position?

This is very interesting.  It means VFL clubs essentially will need to work with Local clubs for top up players.  I wonder if this will see some local clubs forming strong relationships with VFL clubs to get them to direct players that miss out to them.  An example could be a strong Premier club in the eastern suburbs, Casey has 10-15 players on their list they can call up, assuming clubs will still want their players playing together rather that scattered across Victorian leagues.

Good article on the AFL website:

http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-07-27/afl-victoria-dumps-vfls-development-league

"The fear among clubs, especially those with AFL alignments, is there will be too few playing opportunities to encourage footballers to pursue the VFL pathway. VFL clubs will have to foster a strong feeder system with grassroots clubs, where the increased leftover players will filter to. "

Also reports that Saints and North look like fielding their own VFL clubs next year with Frankston a possible additional team.

If there are three more teams one hopes that the seasons are more closely aligned (length wise) and that byes are used sparingly.

I have a bold solution.

We go back to playing under 19's,Reserves and Seniors in the same competition and have corresponding curtain raisers when possible.

Draft the Under 19s from agreed zones but make these players able to be drafted at draft age.

This is a legitimate fear although the money players can earn in local footy is out of whack and a good player that has the ability to play VFL could make $1000+ a game cash playing local footy.  AFL clubs will still need 10+ players to top up so kids that miss the draft still have a chance to play at an AFL reserves side and the stand alone VFL clubs.  You would have fears though for the financial viability of a number of these stand alone clubs.

It would be good for AFL Vic to form a Metro Premier League that sits under the VFL.  This will not only provide a better path way but also help level out local competitions through out Metro Vic.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.
