    Good Friday football should be played in the WRFL, I went and watched gisborne vs kyeton today at gisborne and it was a huge crowd. $10 to get in and there was collectors and raffles all day for the children's hospital.
    The 2 teams who are game enough to do it could be sitting on a good earn over the bar. Gold coin donation to get into clubrooms that goes to the appeal because we can't charge at the gate. it's the most boring day of the year so I believe a few would turn up to watch, thoughts?

    Agree. May be a bit tough next year with Easter in March, but certainly when Easter falls late there are no excuses.

    Small step this year with an Anzac Day game in Division 2, and St Albans starting the Division 1 season on a Friday night against Deer Park but the league and clubs need to get more creative with the fixturing no doubt.

    Agreed but would have to become accustomed to changing direction mid lead to chase passes that are more than a metre wide of him. On the other hand, he'll probably appreciate only getting reprimand for left hooking all the tools out there trying to rough him up to make a name for themselves. May even play for $4,800 a game.

    They Say. The boys at Hoppers looking at shifting coz all the money's going into the wrong pockets? How dare they? They play in the WRFL, money going to the wrong players is actually a clause written in all WRFL registration documents. The loyal ones should be banished from the league by questioning such a clause. Fools.

    What's happening on the footy front this weekend? Anyone want to have a stab at who will win all games this weekend? Heard St Albans have a few missing including some of the new recruits due to injuries!
    Alot of sides struggling with depth as not enough numbers in twos as many have moved on due to clubs not looking after locals! Here's my predictions
    Deer park by 8 goals
    North footscray by 13 points
    Spots wood by 70 points
    Sunshine by 4 goals
    Altona to beat a top heavy colts by at least 7 goals

    Deer park by 35 points (who will stop Condos - no one is my answer)
    Hoppers by 100 points (North Footscray will be battling Heights for the spoon)
    Spotswood by 30 points (Albion too many outs, Spotty too many in's)
    Sunshine by 150 points (Heights will be lucky to field a team)
    Altona by 50 Points (At Altona, BIG ground, will too fit and will run over an under prepaired Colts)

    Deer park by 3 goals - condos will be very hard to stop. Stalbans may be under manned?
    Spotswood by 6 goals - list just keeps getting stronger. Albion will be there abouts, but massive losses.
    Sunshine by 4 goals - will bounce back after a couple unlucky years, will be fighting for a finals spot. Sunny heights lack resources.
    Port colts by 5 goals - will be back to their old best, with quality ins. Although, Expect altona to surprise people.
    Nth footscray by 10 points - alot of changes, and from all reports up and about. Hoppers have picked up, but i dont think its enough to mix it with the power sides.

    My finals prediction

    Spotty
    Port
    Altona
    Albion
    Deer park


    Goodluck to all this weekend. Shut up weapons.

    TIPTOPTHOMMO am i missing something here? two people have tipped North to beat Hoppers. North have lost allot of player from last years average at best season and have included minimal stocks, yet Hoppers have lost alot of players but have replaced them with alot of players with massive qualities. also you said to mix it with the power sides? I wouldn't be thinking North are a power side. Can someone explain why North will be a better team than Hoppers this year:confused:

    How will Colts be under prepared ? Started their preseason in November :confused: May miss one or two players from their best side as Altona probably will and most clubs do come Rd 1, but underprepared No. Altona may get the points first up with the home ground advantage but Colts beat them there last year and also played some quality footy during finals at Chirnside Park on a big deck,with a far inferior lineup to the one that will be on display this year.

    Hoppers will be a better team this year (have looked OK in practice matches) good chance to get the 5th position on the ladder, while there will be improvement in North Footscray also mainly to Rock's attitude and influence plus a couple of pick ups. Hoppers should win by 4 -5 goals.

    Sunshine will win but lucky they are playing Heights who sound like they are struggling big time. Can't see Sunshine making the five.

    Spottie will be too big and quick for Albion who wont be able to cover their losses but still will be in the fight for 5th. Spottie definitely better than last year, just McGhie alone is massive inclusion

    Colts and Altona will be match of the round, both will be fighting for top three over the year, but I think Altona at home on the big ground will be too quick and win

    Deer Park and St Albans will give a good site as to how both these will go for the year. Deer Park to win based on their recruits and the opposite with St Albans based on the players they have lost. Playing at St Albans will make it closer than expected.


    Ladder:

    Spottie
    Altona
    Colts
    Deer Park
    Hoppers
    Albion
    Sunshine
    North Foots
    Heights

    I'm sure Nth will be a lot better than last year, once we have a our full squad playing we will have added 12 new players 3 will probably missing this week.
    We have good speed across the ground may just lack a little bit of height against the top sides.
    We will give it a fair crack this week a very young list hopefully we can sustain our effort for 4 quarters this week and if we do i'm confident we can have a great win first up.

    Other games
    Deer Park over Stalbans by 4 goals
    Spotty way to good for the cats
    Sunshine will account for hghts easily
    Altona Colts will be match of the round, i think the colts will get over the line with there key fwds dominating when ball gets in to there fwd line.
    Colts will certainly get better as the season goes on.

    Great to have foot back!!

    I dont think you are missing anything. Rocks influence will make a difference, and they wouldve improved from last year where they showed glympses of talent throughout the year. I wouldnt say their losses were massive besides maybe one or two. Yes hoppers got carey, and a couple other quality recruits, but it will take more than that. As for my 'power sides' comment. Meaning the likes of spotty, port, altona, albion. Based on facts, and my own opinion. I cant say why nth will be better, i just think they will be an improved unit. And lets face it, who likes hoppers? Lol

    Fair enough, just don't see how Nth will bridge the gap and add to it.

    I will be going to the Friday night game and think it will be a great specticle for the league, looking forward to seeing the new recruits on show for DP and watching a freakish talent in T.Jenkins, I really don't think he can be stopped, he could be a One man show unfortunately.

    You don't need to see it, it's your opinion and your correct....

    Timmy is an out and out gun but like gazza in the afl, it's a team game no matter how good anyone individual is you need an even spread of contribution!

    (good to see people backing the parkers)...will be massive if we get up......i believe st albans being a div 1 finals contender will have too much grunt through the midfield going forward.......a few of the st albans boys were down watching our praccy v macleod and if im a good judge the st albans coach should use the same game plan macleod did to break down deer park.......will be interesting to watch how he goes about it........like wise deer parks game plan playing against the big boys!!!!

    my tip......draw

    tiptopthommo go back to the riff raff........

    Quality post with no substance, you must be spot on.

    Good luck to all you boys running around, at least footys back and we can finally look forward to playing instead of punting away our money.

    Enjoy.

    Yeah i expected that, no substance, no clue really. Just formed and opinion on what ive seen and heard.
    I guess the results will speak for themselves this week tige.

    Punting away on players? Or on the tab? Lol. Good luck this weekend to everyone up in the big smoke.
