Im all for the current status quo as this is the same competition renamed only but it would make more sense only counting the AFL flags than adding flags from a totally different competition.

Celebrate then for what they are VFA flags
I'll celebrate them as flags won by my club.

Well we were in it for a start.
I'm glad you mentioned that as it's one of my main concerns, look how relatively poor Geelong have been since joining a known top tier competition, only 9 flags in 120 years makes your 7 in 30 years look as if the competition was possibly less than top tier?

That is already the right of every club as it should be and as is recognised by the AFL since 2016, they are a part of Geelongs and the VFA's history.

What they aren't a part of is VFL/AFL history.

Lets leave things as they already are for once.

We still cant determine that it was a better comp than the SAFA.

Recognise them in their correct context as other clubs do, 7 VFA flags 9 VFL/AFL flags, dont forget history just keep it in its right place.

I have, not a lot written about that period all I can find is that it was the premier football comp in Victoria not necessarily Australia

No matter it is not the VFL/AFL competition so should not be included as such, celebrate your wins for what they are VFA flags, dont rob the VFA of its place as the original competition.

If the VFA had of folded the year all the best teams left them it would be much easier for people to understand and accept those flags as part of the official tally.
However they continued on and became the second tier league with the minnow teams not worthy of invitation into the new big league.

Lol, remember Richmond, you timid little minnow club. You would have no flags if Geelong didn't spank you on the bottom and tell you to grow up. Now sit down, be quiet, and be good!

Keep telling yourself that. We are not claiming your minnow flags, just reminding your minnow fans that your minnow club would be playing Mornington were it not for the mighty Cats.

Every single flag, you owe to us. Every single one. How does that feel?

It feels like you are a little triggered.

I know of of a couple of flags we can thank you for.

1967
2017

With our vastly superior record against you in finals there are probably more, thanks anyway.

It all makes so much sense now, why they're so obsessed with Richmond as well as the mighty Hawfies. The September trauma runs deep.

yes 8 v 2 in finals against us and we all know the damage Hawthorn did to them in the unloseable 2008 GF and so many other finals series, they do have trouble letting go at Geelong, so now that they realise they will never be a big club by winning VFL/AFL Grand Finals their embarrassing CEO has proposed we let them count their VFA flags as well, sad.

You seem genuinely upset, don't worry I did see a positive post in favour of Geelong from a supporter of a club that is close to the Cats in status, Norf.

You could merge and become Norf West Melbourne once you give up on that crazy oblong at Goombah, that will solve your problem with lack of flags as well, win win.

Sorry m8 but we have too much respect for ourselves to seek help of others to fight our fights.

We would never claim to be a big club and then combine forces with another outgunned minnow force.

I would assume you're smart enough to not even think about claiming to be a big club?

I was just matching you with a like sized team.

You should actually read a post before responding to it.
No need I read it correctly the first time.

"We would never claim to be a big club and then combine forces with another outgunned minnow force"

The bolded part by adding the and makes it ambiguous as to your meaning, as my response stated "I would assume you're smart enough to not even think about claiming to be a big club? seems my assumption was correct:thumbsu:
