It appears that the league has lost quite a few players and clubs are struggling to replace some quality they are losing. Based on no one giving too much away apart from Ky and Tat recruits are we in for a weaker season with what appears quality out and not alot in?

Did hear that Mansfield have picked up a few but its always the rumour at this time of the year. Doesn't appear to be an influx of big names at this stage.

2015 wouldn't have been rated as a strong year in the leagues history either would it? But your right its looking weaker.

Not a fan of it personally, will be interesting to see if there are many games this season as the league have left it up to the clubs to work out with the opposition if games are played at night , pretty sure Echuca has one first up , KY are obviously keen on night games as they are a big money maker , not sure many clubs are keen to play them at night though .

Saturday Night in the first few weeks of the season is working well it seems and the Sunday games ive been too get a good attendance with people in the area involved in other leagues or games on the Saturday able to go for a look. I actually think it would be worth clubs fixturing 1 Sunday game a Season.

Yes more than happy with a Sunday fixture ,lighting is not very good quality in the GV for games.

Mate Mansfield pick up a few every year and last year they were pre-season world beaters based on signings. Didnt equate to wins and have lost a few as well so i wont be jumping on the M Train until I can see some steam.

Ky make good coin when they play local teams. Echuca or Rochy under lights will make them a buck but they wouldnt even attempt it with a few teams. Sundays are always good but no social aspect to the game after its over as everyone has to work the next day so gate increases and food sales up but alcohol sales down and dead after the game is over.

Clubs don't hold functions after every game these days so on one of those they would be better off with an extra 100 to 150 paying to get through the gate plus cashing in the extra canteen and Bar sales.

One other problem with night games is that it's also usually cold which restricts the crowd and definitely restricts drink sales.

Twilight could work with after match entertainment to keep everyone around? Could enable u/16 games to be played on the same day; 16's @ 12, 18's @ 1.30, ressies @ 4 and seniors at 6. Would need to be first 6-7 rounds.

Ky could be without tom Sheldon this year as he may be going back to pursue his punting career.
