I know I should know these VFL teams and I have heard of them but for the life of me I don't know which AFL team most of the VFL teams are affiliated with and I don't know which VFL teams are strong and which are weak.

I feel like that’s normal. Back when most teams had a more direct link with their VFL side, and us with Port, I followed it most weeks and that’s when I first watch Adam Goodes play.

All I know is
Box Hill is affiliated with Hawthorn.
I think Northern Bullants was associated with Carlton.
Casey Demons = Melbourne
Sandringham with St Kilda?

Yes. The audience is limited, so there isn’t any money in it. Only a couple of games are televised each weekend in Victoria.

If they can justify it for NEAFL games you'd think they could get something up for the Swans and Giants VFL teams.

Even just a single camera stream on YouTube would be OK.

Can we change the title instead of this immature heading . It's about the Swans reserves
It is the first two words of the title, also it is our way of having a small protest against the Victoria centric nature of the decision to have this new competition called the "VFL"

Yes, but the competition is called the "VFL", as in the AFL actively decided to setup a new competition involving a lot of teams from places other than Victoria and yet they still called it the VFL because of "tradition".

Quietly stoked we might be getting a game down the road at Casey Fields. Looked at the calendar and we play Melbourne that weekend. What's the chances of it being a curtain raiser and not reserves and seniors played 50k's apart on the same day at the same time?

The seniors and the ECFL side double up for every remaining game in Melbourne (except of course Richmond which is before the ECFL season starts) except for the North game in Round 22 as the ECFL side is on a Bye. Only our match against Coburg in the last round sees the ECFL side travel to Melbourne alone and not jointly with the Seniors that is one to look forward to as it should be played at Coburg City Oval.

Only Geelong have got a curtain raiser so far so I think we might have a bit of travel on match days between grounds
