My biggest concern with Sam is if he has a successful season in 2021, he may get given a godfather offer to coach in the AFL in'22.
Very impressed with his dictation to the young fellas there.

Don't suppose anyone knows if these rules brought in for 2020 will apply to 2021?


Summary of VFL rules changes:
  • VFL clubs will have a development list introduced, made up of 19-year-old players.
  • All clubs will be required to play 23 players per match, which will include 1 x 19-year-old development player and 1 x under-21 player (i.e traditional 23rd player).
  • List structures for 2020 will be as follows:
    • Non-AFL clubs can list up to 46 players, including 40 x primary listed players and 6 development list players.
    • AFL aligned clubs can list up to 36 players, including 30 x primary listed players and 6 x development list players.
    • AFL clubs can list up to 30 players, including 24 x primary list players and 6 x development list players.
  • An additional rookie list of two players is available to all VFL teams which will include NGA players and players who meet the AFL category B Rookie criteria.
  • A father/son rule will be introduced in 2020 which allows a club to list a player whose father played 100 games or more for the club (including AFL and AFL aligned clubs). These players will be listed on a club’s development list.
  • Aside from current finals eligibility rules, no other playing restrictions will apply in the finals series.
VFL lists will need to be larger if anything, to account for the AFL side's reduction.

it is completely false economy all these changes. AFL Footy dept cut by 30%, but when did you ever see six or seven coaches at box hill (happy to accept if I’m wrong)
