    Re: Western Region Football League team

    sunline's tips for the round.

    ALBION V SPOTTY (spotty should win this, but albion have to win one sooner or later)
    ALTONA V HOPPERS (we should come home with the points, but we deffinately wont be taking it easy)
    PARKSIDE V YARRAVILLE (parks to be angry with a bad loss last week and to thump a depleted yarraville)
    COLTS V STALBANS ( Colts will win this)

    Seems like an easy round to pick, but so did last week?????.

    Deffinately not true, I played in this league 5 years ago and went to the DVFL and am back now and the only difference between now and then is the top 5 is more competetive and the top 2 are alot stronger.

    Re: Western Region Football League team

    the facts are people don't rate wrfl until they get on the park and experience this league first hand, and our comp might not be as strong as others, but it's not far off
    this league had 12 teams in division 1 up until 3 yrs ago which made an uneven draw and a lot of one sided results which reflects badly on the league, now it has 10 teams an even draw and besides a couple of teams the comp is starting to even out
    if glenorden come up next which they have been preparing for now for a few years and altona build on what they have started this year a strong wrfl division 1 will be a really good competetion

    Re: Western Region Football League team

    yeah good points about the 12 becoming a 10 sick of mates from EDFL always going on about how there comp is the best and that sh it please really each leauge is better than the other at something weather its physical, skill or professional its anever ending argument that rears its head every 2 months and fires everyone up, what would be the best way to settle it, l know Rock07 has a good point and a proven one where he says most not all players from so called better leauges come and play in the WRFL and dont have the same impact and then some that have played in the WRFL go to other leagues and play real well.

    Maybe a well paid big 2 week FA Cup style Carnival with no injuries and every player avaliable(in a perfect world)

    Maybe some of the powerhouse clubs could bankroll a super league with the best two sides in the higher rating leagues making a new competition called the super league. I know it will never happen, but it would be a fantastic concept.

    Apparently Sun, there was talk of it a couple of years ago, but the biggest problem is how to promote and demote.

    Re: Western Region Football League team

    On this point. pies you are pretty right with what your saying. Being from the Bush everyone up home still rates the WRFL lower because of years gone by. Even when I first come down here the standard wasn't as good as it is now.

    By the same token, I think that your right pies in that until you actually play in the league you don't realise the standard. After playing in the bush on big grounds in good standard leagues the WRFL looked a little lacklustre. But once you get on the ground, because of the smaller grounds, the physicality is much more intense, and the game is not as free flowing. (Which suits a little fella like myself)

    The problem is, its hard to compare the leagues because of so many factors, mainly the size of grounds. Two different types of football. Hope this made some sort of sense.
