    If we can keep our best team on the park for a good chunk of the season we'll finish above North Shore. They have lost some quality players and they don't have the amount of good young players coming up through the ranks we do.

    He will be in West best 22 easily. Will end up wasting his prime there for extra cash. Like Symes and Moreland before him

    Symes and Moreland were selected in the GFL squad playing for West, hardly wasting their prime.

    He can't have been on much if you think he'll be getting all this extra money at West.

    Don’t know what he’d be on. I know what those other players were on and it’s a lot more than other successful GFL clubs were offering at the time.
    They played inter league and Vic country yes.how many finals they play? How many wins even?
    Just saying would rather see a GDFL player try at a decent GFL club than take he cash and walk into a cellar dweller like West. But that’s their choice and their right to do whatever they want.

    Dalton has a family connection to west. I think his dad played at west. It was part of the reason to go to west

    Might as well make it a 5 team league then if that's the attitude.

    Now that preseason should be well underway for all clubs, anything worth noting from clubs so far?
    I heard that Apollo Bay are chasing Barton and Addie, while Thomson had around 50 on their first night.

    Everyone wants to get on the gravy train at Thomson, only 22 still picked game day means their 2s should be competetive

    Matty Tyquin off to Ballan too, clearance lodged, get on Ballan Sportsbet for the flag, so do they have a cap and points in that league??? with the Inva boys.....
    My mail is Werribee slipping under the radar with points to burn due to juniors and some handy higher WDFL pickups.....
    North will be stronger too, could be an interesting year, gotta love the silly season.

    Isn't Addie still captain at BPH? Be a bit of a shock if he left.

    Very exciting. Will be a good crowd. 5-6 years ago I would have said GDFL to win but there’s been a huge change with money and big names able to go to BFL compared to GDFL. Reckon BFL won by 8-10 goals unfortunately.
    Hope GDFL can put its best team out there

    Tough to answer at this stage of preseason when there are a number of recruits not yet announced 'officially' that would be in contention for interleague

    The GFL is 10 goals better than the BFL.
    And the BFL is 10 goals better (being very generous) than the GDFL.
    Let's face facts, the GDFL is rubbish.

    Travel outside of Geelong and you’ll see plenty of country leagues that are much more rubbish than the GDFL.

    The GDFL have had great buy in from the coaches and players for interleague in the last few years.
    The BFL have a lot at stake as they are expected to win the game. The GD really have nothing to lose.
    With players like Gillies, Bouman, Donohue, Ellis, Westwood, Stirling, etc coming into the competition I think the GD will field a very strong side.
    And that’s just the guys we know who are coming into the competition at this point.
    Club versus club I agree the competitions don’t really stack up all that closely but 22 versus 22 is another story.
    Personally, I think the game would be a very tight match up.

    How much are coaches getting paid these days across the Geelong leagues? Obviously there would be some variance, but curious if it is similar to, or more than the highest paid players.
