4 team comp, Potentially 5 if a struggling Tumba can scratch a side together..., I genuinely don't see the point.

Yes the region and more importantly the youth need some Football/Netball during the winter months but they will get tired of playing the same team every 3 weeks real quick.

About time they started thinking outside the box a little. Why not hold a pre season type of Carnival between the 4 sides, say 3 weeks of Football/Netball and a 2 week finals series, That way you could pull some players from TDFL/Hume etc then release those players after the carnival to go and play for there TDFL/Hume league club. Gives some football in the area, Eliminates the issue surrounding player shortage, Low cost as minimal games played, Will lift the standard and would generate some interest when there is not much else on apart from boring old Cricket...Just a thought.

I agree. This is where I think that the realisation that a merger was imperative will really hit home.
Massive disappointment the merger didn't happen, as usual small minded local thinking. My tip is in 5 years time they'll be no football left and a bunch of whinging old netballers complaining they don't have a club to play for.:mad:

Totally agree. Clearly they are a proud bunch but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to tell you that some clubs forfeiting at senior level, no reserve grade, juniors playing with minimal number etc that there isn’t a long term future and I actually think the decision to continue in the current form is selfish because it will be to the detriment of footy in the Upper Murray.

100% agree with the sentiments on here. I just don’t know where we go from here. Do locals who supported the one vision club keep supporting their current club? Do we all just wait for the league to collapse and say I told you so? Or does the league get a new lease on life with some new ideas after staring extinction in the face? So many questions..

my opinion was that it would have been the perfect time to transition into something that would have been exiting for the next generation.

Any. chance that you’ll be merging with Corryong Kenny? Maybe merge with Wales and get a very strong club if the does eventually fold 🤷‍♂️
Can’t see it happening imo Johnny. But I could be wrong. Corryong are an interesting one. We’re genuinely 50/50 on the proposal from what I’ve heard. Could be a fairly divided club going into next season with some lifetime supporters fully behind one vision.
