and im shit out of luck...

Licensing rules prohibit non Aust IP addy from use.

AS clearly there is a massive contract breach and licensing issue of VFL coverage outside Aust :rolleyes::drunk:

FFS.

I read on their website they were hoping to stream through the GFC website at some stage. Would that bypass that issue if it was to eventuate?

in theory yes....

I have some ninja moves left if still goes pear shaped but the fact that the license forbids oveseas IP access when the % of market would be less than 2% probably makes me laugh.

Noticed this advertised on Facebook.



Don't think it is affiliated with the club, but it'll be awesome to have something like this so those who can't make it to the games or who live in areas without TV coverage can keep up to date with what is happening with the VFL/VFLW sides.

Here's the link to the site: https://gofooty.live/
Thanks gofooty, this is an improvement but I still have an issue trusting any commentary that I don't actually see myself.

Not like commentators slant it in favor of their favorite players/teams, ie: Ch7. ;)

The following is from an article in today's Geelong Addy that is focusing on Dean Gore's return from ACL injury (going really positively), but it also discussed a couple of other VFL players and where things are at:

“He’s really comfortable with where his body is at and he’s raring to go, so he’s basically one of our new recruits, along with (Dan) Capiron and Benny Reid — to not the same extent — but they’re three guys that we’re glad to get back in our system as mature-aged VFL players.” O’Bree said Gore would be an asset in whatever role he was given.
“Gorey’s got good flexibility. He can play halfback, he can play inside mid, he can play outside mid as well,” O’Bree said.
“They’re our most valuable VFL players, the ones that can play multiple positions.”
Capiron failed to get on the park in 2018 after suffering debilitating hip complaints, but has also featured in the two trials, while Reid and Campbell Floyd have also returned to full fitness in a boost for O’Bree’s stocks.
“Campbell’s done all his rehab and recovery and he’s just getting up to match fitness now,” O’Bree said. “He hasn’t done any AFL training sessions, but he’s done all the VFL requirements at training so hopefully Campbell will get a few games against AFL-VFL listed teams in coming weeks.
“Dan’s played the two trial games against the local clubs, he’s running really well, looks bloody fit, just needs to get a bit more match practice into him after missing a year of footy.”

GEELONG’s VFL team will make its first appearance on the MCG in more than a decade when it meets Essendon ahead of the Country Round AFL clash between the Cats and Bombers on May 5.

It is among three curtain raisers Geelong will feature in during 2019, with meetings against Sandringham on July 13 and North Melbourne on August 10 to be played at GMHBA Stadium before the AFL Cats take on St Kilda and North Melbourne respectively...

2019 VFL CURTAIN RAISERS
GMHBA Stadium
VFL Round 15 Geelong Cats v Sandringham on Saturday, July 13, 3.45pm
(curtain-raiser to Geelong Cats v St Kilda)
VFL Round 19 Geelong Cats v North Melbourne on Saturday, August 10, 3.45pm
(curtain-raiser to Geelong v North Melbourne)
MCG:
VFL Round 5 Essendon v Geelong Cats on Sunday, May 5, 11.50am
(curtain-raiser to Essendon v Geelong Cats)


I think krock has things slightly wrong as the round 5 match is our home game, so surely we should be named first.

Otherwise this all sounds good

Thanks to Krock for the following:

GEELONG has released 45-strong initial VFL training squad ahead of next week’s start of pre-season.

To again be coached by Shane O’Bree, the Cats will have eight sessions at Deakin University’s Elite Sports Precinct in Waurn Ponds before Christmas.

Twenty-one of those invited are new to the Cats, including Geelong Falcons trio Baxter Mensch (son of ex-Geelong forward David), Zac Knights (son of Cats assistant and former Richmond great Matthew) and Titit Nyak.

Geelong has also opened the door to six fresh faces from the GFL; Newtown & Chilwell trio Alex Cincotta, Ned Harris and Jy Lane, Colac big man Adam Garner, St Joseph’s ruck Josh Hovey, and St Mary’s young gun Harry Ling.

The Cats will announce more additions once the AFL draft period is concluded.

Thanks winty for posting the fixture
Not many from TAC U18s 2018... Although we do have a lot of young players on the Main list, so I can see a good 10-12 developing players each week from the Main list playing VFL, assuming no major injuries ofc.

I still think returning to the AFL list isn't wholly out of the question for Black and Gore. But even if it is, I'm hopeful they can have a positive impact on the kids coming through.

I totally think the same - be interesting to see what happens come mid-year and if we have an open spot on our list (season ending injury) and we decide to partake in the midseason draft, would it be one of those guys we may target ahead of someone from totally outside the club?

Gore, Tsitas, Black, Floyd, Keras is a decent core for the VFL.

Add Reid as a Key Defender, then the AFL listed players. I am not bullish, but we will have a good group there to help development.

Being at the VFL this afternoon sounds like a dream when compared to my plan of working followed by the long commute home to hopefully still catch the AFL.

Hopefully the Twitter feed can provide some comfort.

I hope to be there.

I have heard so little of Kennerley and Jarvis, it will be interesting to see how they go.

Also keen to see how Buzza goes down back and whether Cunico, Parsons, Abbott, Jones, Simpson ( two years in )are showing more. This is where the push needs to happen if we are going anywhere.
Could you post through a few reports if possible?
Also Kyle Reid is he playing?
