Play in a simulated football league - find great movies and TV shows - play Werewolf - play video games (try our Minecraft server) - argue about politics - listen to music - keep up with science news - play board games - just gasbag - discuss true crime - and so much more.
It certainly was a boost for a competition which was fast becoming completely stale and uninteresting for most supporters to watch given the totally lopsided nature of the SFL in recent years.Good to see all the games were fairly close. Has been some big margins the last few seasons, hopefully it continues
Yeah New Norfolk lost about 15+ players over the Summer period after Matthew Smith was appointed coach up there apparently.Wow New Norfolk 0 2 could it be the end of an era.? Notice there ressie and u18 are in the same postion. While not good for the supporters of the Eagles could be a close and interesting season. Maybe Claremont early season favourites.
Norfolk took their 18's out of the SFL last year and put them in the STJFL comp. Pretty pointless thing to do so they brought them back in this year.Yeah New Norfolk lost about 15+ players over the Summer period after Matthew Smith was appointed coach up there apparently.
They lost a lot to St Virgils, Bothwell etc and barely were able to scrape up enough numbers to field a reserves side and had to bring their STJFL team up to the SFL colts to be able to field three teams by all reports.
Looks to be a very even competition this year, after three rounds there are six teams locked on two wins, Dodges Ferry, Sorell and New Norfolk are down the bottom winless so far but Dodges have had two narrow losses, Sorell have had a narrow loss and two other losses of five and seven goals.
It'll be interesting to see if New Norfolk improves throughout the season or will they stay down, at this stage Lindisfarne looks to be the form side of the SFL, especially having smashed both of last years grand finalists by over ten goals in their first two matches.
Claremont don't appear to be anywhere near as strong as in recent years either.
Hobart are looking much fitter than they have done in many years and have picked up quite a few good players, they let Brighton off the hook in Round 1 and got punished for it, ran all over Huonville Lions (touted as a possible flag threat this year) and had five out today and played poorly against Dodges Ferry and managed to get their noses in front in the last quarter and hold out the Sharks by 4 points.
It's a very open race for finals spots that's for sure.
What people dont understand is yes Sandy Bay juniors is a big club, but how many actually live in the area. Most of the players come from Hutchins school and these students live in other suburbs.In today's "Mercury" an article about raising Sandy Bay from the dead and putting them is the SFL, Next year it is twenty years since they last ventured on the football field at senior level.
Would it work? personally i think the last 19 years of there existence they struggled apart from a couple years under Andy Bennett. I suppose they have a junior set up in place though, however if Scott Wade is in favour I immediately have doubts.

I thought it would be the case with there Juniors coming from all other the greater Hobart area, it would also be the third SFL/SWL club in the Hobart City Council Area and with pressure on there southern area from The TigersWhat people dont understand is yes Sandy Bay juniors is a big club, but how many actually live in the area.

spot on,I thought it would be the case with there Juniors coming from all other the greater Hobart area, it would also be the third SFL/SWL club in the Hobart City Council Area and with pressure on there southern area from The Tigers
Hobart football club started so well this season but, in recent weeks, have fallen away. A loss to Cygnet by 120 points yesterday has sparked talk around the club about outing the coach. There's been a lot of talk around the club all season about how disgruntled players are with the coach. Maybe the Tigers board need to act before they start losing players.Probably about time we updated and posted a current SFL thread given that the previous one was nearly five years old.
The SFL Season starts on Saturday 2nd April with four matches at Cygnet, Sorell, Dodges Ferry and the TCA Ground with Lindisfarne having the bye.
East Coast Bombers, which was mixture of Triabunna and Lauderdale Reserves has ended its partnership with Triabunna deciding to resume as a stand alone entity and play in the ODFA from this season.
