    Clearances are interesting.
    What is happening at Mt Ev? Last man out turns off the lights? Rumors of a bit of a stoush, but must of been something more in it.
    Lucky for Healesville, who lost a few with not much coming in. Will stay in Div 1 if Mt Ev don't settle down.
    Emerald list is looking ok. Some good pickups. They will surprise a few.
    Wander In doubled their population with 20+ clearances. Hope they can find the ground. Only lost a couple. If they build on last year and raise the cash, they could be smokies for the gf.
    Brookers picked up a couple of quality as did Upwey, with a few others returning, so both will be hard to beat.
    Some very quiet clubs out there.
    Olinda and Monbulk. Very little in or out, but Olinda have a heap of kids coming up. They need a few older heads on the park.
    Woori, with none coming in and losing a couple plus 2 kids to VFL. Witkoski will be back from up north I reckon, but nothing to bring much hope so far.
    Warby lost a couple, gained a couple, so will be much the same.
    Will we see some new sides fighting out the finals and a couple of old rivals battling to stay in div 1?

    Took the kids up the Warby trail on the pushies today, cracking weather and excellent coffee (River a bit cold for mine). Went across to have a look at the Warby ground. Brand new Netty Court and Cricket Nets are all but ready and look awesome, really good job and great to have the Warby Netball finally on sight. Always wondered why the pitch at Warbys ground runs wing to wing ? Was standing out in the middle and I think it'd be better if it ran goal to goal. Just my opinion !

    Bloods off for 1st Praccy at Alex this Saturday, hope the weather is just as good. Unsure of format but think we have a "6 Qtr" match with no U18s, 3 games of Netty to get the girls going as well !

    Just an ideas, but would there be much interest in a Crystal Ball thread?
    Say, a list of predictions for the coming season and a cut off time early in the season. We can then check to see who is the most accurate and monitor progress of predictions throughout the season.
    1 point for each correct prediction
    If there is enough interest, I will try to arrange some prizes for the winner/s

    Example list (you might want to suggest some of your own questions. Just keep it polite!)

    1 point for every correct answer.

    Hey Tees ive seen your name scattered all over the honour board for cricket aswell up at Olinda. But if you had to face Brendan Woods you would be thankful he wasn't pushing off the nets at the top end with the gum trees behind him. And the taunts of give him the 'Goon Ball' ringing through the hills. Beautiful cricket ground though, very picturesque!

    The Goon Ball, what a classic...
    What chance would I be to charge "The Goon Ball" ?
    What is "The Goon Ball" ?
    I don't think I'd be able to keep a straight face facing B.Woods. I did stand there yesterday in a batting stance, imagining someone coming down the hill, fair to say they'd get some asisstance. Hard work for the poor bugger from the other end lol

    correct ....the one at olinda used to run slightly off north South so when you were batting late at training the sun just caught your eye.........when the ground was fixed up i think it was moved slightly

    What a wealth of knowledge the league website is!! Any chance anything can be updated or a new news story of one of the clubs. It's been the same stuff since last year, l'm sure with the season fast approaching something on the starting dates, interleague updates, anything. Come on Mr Walter give us something.

    Did you email your thoughts to Mr.Walter ???

    Stacey Cooper has recently left the YV admin and I'm pretty sure she was website administrator so it may be in the throes of being changed over to someone else to handle...

    Fair enough Tees but when you scroll through the websites of the Northern FL, EDFL, MPNFL & EFL just to name a few you can read for hours all throughout the year where as ours always has a lack of content. Just an opinion & l will email Mr Walter with some ideas.

    No thats fair enough, I regularly look at the EFL website and its latest news link is updated every 2nd day. No arguement there from me !
