100% Zacstars, I hope that Wattle Park do well in D2.
Also they are out of the bottom grade which isn't always as easy as it looks.
Canterbury should not have been asked the question by the VAFA though in my opinion.
It sure is, it's bloody hard getting out of the bottom grades and they were gifted a golden opportunity to do so.
No guarantee of a flag either, all it takes is for a side to recruit really well and who knows.
When it boils down though they should not of had a say in it.
Not if you are unaware of this rule though, did you know this rule applied ?
It doesn't seem deliberate to me, I always thought that if you doubled up it was okay and these were added to your games tally?
It appears so billyboi, I feel for your club as I don't think this is a case of blatant cheating.
Surely there is a way of finding this out when team lists are input before the game rather than after ?
This story has been confirmed to me and FWIW I don't think they should be punished to that extent of missing a grand final, surely a fine would have been appropriate in this circumstance ?
By the way how many club officials would be aware of this rule ?

FWIW I think moving to these other leagues is a no brainer for most D4 sides for the exact reasons you have mentioned previously.
I 100% agree with your comments Johnny, previously I thought that the gap between D3 & D4 wasn't great but judging by the scores I doubt there would be many wins for the teams promoted at the end of this season.
It would be great to get the thoughts from people still involved at clubs that have...
Hey GIA I've read previously that you either played at North Brunny or were involved there ?, they were a bit stiff to go down this season and hopefully can bounce straight back up.
We (Manningham) had a great rivalry with them and although the games were competitive the after games were always...
Don't miss out on the headlines from Local Footy. Followed categories will be added to My News.
VAFA division two clubs Yarra Old Grammarians and Manningham Cobras have announced they will merge next season pending on general meetings to be held by both clubs in early September.
I was there and I thought the siren went just before the ball hit his boot as did everyone that I spoke to after the game from both clubs.
The Canterbury players didn't complain and I though they took the loss rather well considering it was a shattering way to lose.
Canterbury can consider...
