Not connected to the league but they should keep Div 3. Really if you have 6 teams in it that is enough. Without Div 3 how does glenordan get going again or how does a new team start up?
If they want to get going and start up again, they need to put in a sustainable plan and stick to it. Not just try win a flag and fall over again and again.
Division 2 will still be competitive next year outside of North Sunshine. (If they don't change their fate)
It's not that big of a jump. Reckon Suns vs Newport or Wyndham vale would be a good game, and half the div 3 sides would flog North Footscray and Braybrook.....
Division 1 integrity needs min 10 sides (18 rounds and play everyone twice). So it's a great thing that for the first time in a long time, the tail isn't wagging the dog.
Division 2 couldn't just function on 4 teams, and catering for underperformed clubs, is ridiculous and probably the reason the league has underperformed itself in growing (in a growth corridor mind you).
Sounds like there is some stronger and considered leadership now. Jump on div 3 clubs, get better or die on the vine
