Its a soft cap tho, you can go over it. It just costs you.

Thats why hes saying add $1 on to every membership. I think its $1 for every $1 you go over?
clubs are not wanting to do it, even the likes of wce i believe

remember we are all likely to be still receiving less for our memberships next year, just because we wont be able to get as many punters in the seats as we are normally allowed. thats gunna put a lot of pressure on memberships cost-wise, esp after everyone received zero benefits this year

we cannot take the 100k for granted

VFL and AFLW are two completely different soft caps. There's no choosing between men's and women's footy going on here at all.
Maybe not by the club but there is choosing going on at AFL head office. They have set up the separate cap system to ensure AFLW is fully funded and the women players are even getting a pay rise.

They have chosen not to see the VFL comp as being of equal importance and have not given it a seperate cap and secure its future even though those players are committing more time than the AFLW players do.

The way the VFL competition has been disrespected by the AFL for many years now is a disgrace.

When you combine this with the new under 18 coaching structure which has clearly watered down the ability to focus on male player development, we have a severely weakened feeder system going forward for the men’s game.

It’s going to be very interesting to see how this is all rolled out in 2021. There’s obvious positives to female participation in the game but they are playing with the quality of their core product here and it may come back to bite them.

It seems that Southport coach Stephen Daniel has accidentally leaked the list of teams in the VFL next year.

North Melbourne are there tho and they killed their VFL team

Looks like our VFL team has survived.

Intetested to see how the fixture will work. Going to have to be a longer season than normal just to play everyone once.

So happy with this result!
No RFC controlled VFL development of our players would have been a huge step backwards for our club.

16 game season according to this....


Interesting thing will be the alignment with the boys NAB program which will run alongside. So I wonder which NAB Under 19 team we would be aligned with?

"All clubs will have connections to community clubs and pathway programs, including a varied alignment to Under-19 NAB League Clubs for Victorian-based teams."

Very happy that we will have a ressies side.

Shameful treatment of the VFL and Victorian local footy by the AFL. no state level competition for the strongest AFL state in the country.

Pitiful salary caps and ridiculous list rules that are going to force players out of the game, particularly those over 22.
200k is going to have most blokes running around for what, $300 -$400 a game after training/ playing 4 days a week for 9 months a year?

There are going to be some fearful smashings, Frankston for example will get pummelled by 100 every week because the better players down on the peninsula are going to front up for the likes of Sorrento, Red Hill, Dromana, Frankston Bombers, Pines etc.

Why play VFL for 3-400 bucks a game and lose every week when you could head to a gun local team for better money and win flags.

They are talking about limiting spots on the club lists for players over 22. Stand alone clubs will not be able to recruit the best possible list, they will be required to focus on developing kids coming out of the 18's comp, at least I assume that is the intent.

This is what i was talking about with the smashings, if the standalones can't have mature players on their list they will get smacked.
