thought exactly this at the timeThe more I look back on it now, I can't believe how blatant a rip-off of West Torrens the West Coast Eagles were. The only thing changed was the word "Torrens" with "Coast," and then of course the wings.
But the colour and name, my word.
Yeah, by all means use the colours OR use the name, but not BOTH for cryin' out loud.thought exactly this at the time
The 40 year anniversary version is quite a way off. I’ve done I think 8 out of around 36 teams as I’m not sure who merges, dies, relocates or survives and how many new franchises there will be. I reckon it is about 1 year off being released, hopefully quicker though.When will the 2018 version be uploaded?
Not sure about Melbourne Bitter on the Geelong West jumper!DIVISION 2 CONTINUED
Some more VFA teams made their way into the league. With Port Melbourne earning/buying their way into Div 2, the league had 2 more vacant spaces. 3 VFA clubs were vying for these 2 spaces. With Geelong West having a regional background as well as giving the Cats a local rival, the Roosters were an easy entrant to the AFL.

However with the final spot being contested by the 2 Northern Suburbs clubs of Coburg and Preston neither club was a standout. Preston attracted stars and Coburg had a large stadium with expansive terraces. However, at the 11th-hour officials from both clubs met to propose a merger. The new team was to be known as the Northern Bulls and would split their home games between Preston City Oval and Coburg City Oval. Everything about this team was a compromise however it ends up being better than how both teams fared IRL.

And with that my portfolio is now complete. Thank you for staying patient and I hope you enjoyed every design. Stay tuned as I may make a sequel to this portfolio in the near future.
I’d imagine it’d start with rivalries being very similar to what they were in state leagues, however when part 2 rolls around we may end up seeing some very different rivalry as the teams will have had 40 years worth of clashes to base it around. And yeah fixturing would be something crazy, I reckon Friday night will probably be saved for div 1, div 2 and 3 can get Thursday night games for their “blockbusters”.Awesome idea man, wish it'd happen, what would the rivalries be? if port adelaide power came in 1997, then the port adelaide magpies vs port adelaide power would be an awesome game if theyre in the same division. and would fitzroy still merge with the brisbane rockets?
itd be an awesome weekend watching the footy. 3 friday night games with 1 each division, same with saturday nights, man that would be epic, well at least st kilda can have a division premiership eh lol
Tbh not 100% sure on how I’m going to distribute premierships for part 2, may end up ruffling a few feathers with it given there’ll be 40 years of premiers to decide.Fascinating proposition.
Would certainly put an interesting spin on the flags-discussion that dominated earlier in the season.
Tbh I can’t quite remember how I came to the outcome of giving them Melbourne Bitter as a sponsor, I may have seen them playing a game and it had Melbourne Bitter sponsorship on the side of something.Not sure about Melbourne Bitter on the Geelong West jumper!
