Hi all.

Aucklander and I have had a couple of runs through recent posts in this thread and removed a few unsavoury comments.

The usual griping and gossip is par for the course, but some posts go overboard.

Site rules are here:


People who do not abide by them will have accounts blocked from threads, boards, or banned entirely.

If you see such posts, please report them so they can be attended to. We don't and can't read every post, and mods may be absent for periods around this time of year when people are busy or on holiday.

You can always contact admin here if anything is urgent:

Appreciate the current news as always. Interesting developments - well done.
No probs. There was a meeting last night. The club has apparently decided to stick out the season rather than fold. They will struggle with the loss of players. Word is a money man/player was paying players out of his private account which affected the salary cap. SFNL looking into it.

Big doings at SFNL club St Kilda City. Mass walk out . Players not paid 2 days before clearances close. Dale Swan gone to Pines. Major sponsor pulled pin. Just a bit of news outside of VAFA.
Dale Swan, is any relation to Dane Swan ????

SFNL looking into it. !!!!!!!!! That will go no where, i'd suspect they have allot more pressing issues to be worried about such as legal proceedings pending!!

If they shared some players with other clubs they may not be in the same position😱😱.

It is getting harder every year to get reserves teams together during the European summer. It’s just a fact if life.

Considering the two promoted teams just lost by 150 and 120 points respectively, it’s probably not the best idea.
Also factor in that uni sides are so different year on year. They have limited visibility of the players who will be playing for them apart from the former students.

You want to know the best way to kill off a footy club? Get them to lose by 200 points each week.
I think one of the biggest issues when some clubs have an extraordinary number of sides. When these players in the past would have arrived at other clubs in the area. Which would assist is keeping as many as possible viable.

Currently rumours exist around Ivanhoe and parade to the northern league, St. John’s to southern and queries around the return of old mentonians and also old Westbourne. Will be interesting off season for sure…

Could we see some mergers? Jocs and doveton eagles getting back together, or jocs and masala? Eley park and BHN could be another…
