Like, before the finals series they were legitimately favourites for me. Port vs Richmond will be interesting after Port beat them in the 2017 GF

Liston:

1. Mitch Hibberd
2. Callum Searle
3. Patrick Naish

Fothergill-Round-Mitchell:

1. Jake Riccardi (shoe in, seriously)
2. Marcus Lentini

Don't think they announce 2nd, 3rd etc do they?

Not sure on the make up of the TOTY, but from Essendon and Coburg I expect Heppell, Lentini and Lochie Dickson to be around the mark.

Bit late to the party but Jake Riccardi has been named Fothergil - Round medalist.

From the backline, Jack Charlston (WIlliamstown) - Hugh Beasley (Richmond) - Daniel Coffield (Richmond)
Leigh Masters (Williamstown) - Nick Coughlan (Weribee) - Harvey Hooper (Port Melbourne)
Eli Templeton (Port Melbourne) - James Munro (Casey Demons) - Mitch Hibberd (Williamstown)
Sam Fisher (Northern Blues) - Jake Riccardi (Weribee) - Anthony Scott (Footscray)
Mitch White (Casey Demons) - Jordan Lisle (Port Melbourne) - Sam Fox (Sandringham)
Nick Meese (Williamstown) - Tom Gribble (Weribee) - Alex Woodward (Collingwood)

Internchange a collection of the who's who, who didnt make the 18;

Michael Barlow (Weribee) - Marcus Lentini (Coburg) - Josh Newman (Frankston)
Jack Henderson (Weribee) - Shannen Lange (Port MElbourne) - Jake Corigliano (Coburg)

You would expect quite a few of these guys to get drafted. Coughlan a smoky to get another go. Hibberd to get a go. Riccardi ad Scott. Fox as well.

NPO is the home of VFL football. Also don't think they'll last beyond week 1, both Werribee and Geelong are better sides than them comfortably. As for other grounds, most of them have been booked by other comps for finals due to the VFL not using them during finals.

I think it's the right move to go back to Suburbia but go with North Port. The home of the VFL.
I agree but the Borough cop 3 home finals for finishing 7th. Massive, massive advantage at this time of the year and the comp loses even more integrity.

VFL not interested in finding who the best team actually is.

Thankfully Willy have avoided the dreaded home final at Port this year (so far).

They have Essendon at NPO next week. But the way we played against the Bees makes it hard.

Come on Willy.

Is that 8 prelims in a row?

Can that be matched in any State League in the country?

Great consistent, stable, stand alone club on a little peninsula away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Melbourne.

Whatever happens on Sunday (Tiges are favourites, rightly so), great respect.

Very proud of Port Melbourne to push the very best team in the league all the way, and even be leading halfway through the last.
Being one down on the bench certainly didn't help matters, but absolutely no excuses and a very fine season from the Borough boys.

Well done Willy.

Totally outclassed in the first quarter, the gulf between full and part timers looked massive and I feared the worst at quarter time.

Just worked our way back, started getting our hands on the ball and winning contests. Defended really well after quarter time. Right in it at 3/4 time and in the end should have won it.

Right behind both Wheeler kicks, the first went straight at the post and was always going to hit it. The second, off the boot going through the middle and I thought it was home.............

Opportunity lost.

Good signs from all of the stand alone sides this season. Port and Willy around the mark as usual, Werribee are certainly on the right road and signs of improvement, if not wins on the board, with Cobug and Frankston.

Ikon Park is in decline unfortunately, under the stands is dingy, dark, cold and uninviting and $8 for a can of beer topped off an unfortunate day.

My VFL 2019 Grand Final video on YouTube - last quarter games scenes and after match celebration. If you watch between 8:00 - 9:50 minutes you]ll see the two incredible posters from Williamstown - great crowd reactions and excitement. Willy were brave and unlucky to not win in the end but what can you do.

Had a look and the only posters I could see where the Richmond cheer squad ones...

Also, did you have permission to video the game? It was broadcast on Channel Seven under broadcast rights.

Interesting decision. Wonder if other clubs will do the same with the likes of Darebin?
Darebin won't do that, they want to be in the AFL their self but with their refusal to welcome males into the club means they wont get an AFL Licence. They wont form an alignment because the AFLW teams have a male branch too.

Paul Amy suggesting that VFL clubs try to push for more 18/19 year olds as a means to push the young talent on VFL lists.

In the same tweet Pa also suggests that VFL lists may be reduced in size. Mind boggles me really.
