    Any possibility of something like a weekly highlights package on youtube from the league. If you are interested in womens football, its hard to find any to watch, especially from country WA.

    It would be relatively cheap to do, and good promotion if online searches for womens football turned up decent footage.

    I always like to go through any V A F A and any footage that goes along with it. There have been plenty of scores and Updates of late in V A F A section. Would be great To get ANY VWFL.I Wouldn't even know where a listing of Home grounds or Websites may be. Some or all of this may help to.

    Funny you say that because on the big club in the vwfl the East Burwood devils cant even get a home ground for 2012. They were told after 2010 they couldnt play at east burwood because there were not enough change rooms & the old change rooms at the 2nd ground were reserved for a pipe band!

    in 2011 they got moved to a ground with no drainage 3 light towers with flood lights that didnt even reach the middle of the gound, it was only about 40% lit up at best, add to that the club rooms had no heating. The city of whitehorse told them bad luck thats your only ground, then had the nerve to say in todays local leader that we havent recieved any application from the club for a ground after they told the club that there was nothing for them.

    disgraceful really

    Good God-That's truly P***weak. I had attended a few games at Parkdale woman's games and was a good arvo. I don't think they even field a team any more? Not sure. Just wonder if its possible to speak to other clubs ar la Fitzroy or speak with a C E Os presidents of V F L clubs?

    It's going to be a real future challenge for female teams. More and more female teams are popping up and there just isn't the infrastructure to sustain it. Particulalry in some areas of Melbourne. Leagues may have to look at some innovative fixtures. I know they trialled some weeknight competitions in youth girls.

    It's a tough gig for the women trying to compete with multiple junior teams, ground conditions, men's teams, superules teams and a growing number of female participants/teams. I think it's fair to say that the work is cut out for female teams, however it's not going to improve anytime soon if they continue on this path and don't address the problem with consultation of all stakeholders

    The club has been around for over 10 years & had 4 home grounds in that time, i just think its foul play by the council to keep tossing them aside

    It's a worry when a pipe band is taking precedence at a sports facility. Surely they can Send them off to a hall or something?! I was really just highlighting that it is a problem that will only manifest in future years. If a women's team in the top division can't find a ground, there's obviously a big priority issue here.

    I really wish 'em luck, its a disgraceful situation. Women's Footy in Aus should be getting a better, fairer shake than this.

    round robin prac game on the weekend saw VU-St Albans & Eastern Devils play out a pretty even game with only a couple of points in it to the devils i think, both teams missing a couple of key players. Both teams easily accounted for St Kilda.

    Melbourne Uni are playing North Ballart (nth west division) this weekend i think:confused: & Diamond Creek have a game but unsure who it is agianst or where
