VFA/VFL 2022. What will we see?

I'm not ruling out two divisions being introduced next year if all the interstate sides (exluding Aspley) continue on next year.

Will we see Tasmania re-enter the competition?

Will we see a Northern Territory side?

 

Given the complexities and cost of running this competition, my opinion is that we should push clubs back to their state leagues and (with the exception of Tasmania) go back to an all Victorian competition. 

Thoughts?

Reckon they will persevere what they had this year with addition of Tassie devils.

Who knows what these knuckleheads will come up with,my mail is the Afl sides will form one comp and the standalones with Tassie will form another.Surely its time for the old vfa sides to stand up free of afl domination,why not i say,there grounds and facilities are first class now,we shall see what plays out

The AFL must now realise that expanding and making a multi state competition in the middle of a pandemic was the height of stupidity. Whether they cut their losses or push on is anyones guess.

I knew this would happen,the person who oversaw the new vfl comp has been promoted to something like head of commercial growth,and cop this Tristan Salter says he was happy how it all came together!!!Could only happen in the Afl/Vfl

CGull the ongoing saga of jobs for the boys rolls on. !

If that's Scott's title ? What are his credentials ? Surely there are plenty of aspirants with degrees & business acumen capable of managing this shemozle as it is the moment !

 

 

 

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

21 sides 23 rounds - (1 bye plus a general bye) is the plan at this stage

My guess is that until all AFL clubs are out of allignments the current comp will stay as is. Swans, Lions and non Vic AFL clubs dont want to go back to a NEAFL set up and the AFL will accommodate them in the VFL along with Southport that deserves to be there. With Tasmania pushing to be in the AFL theirs every likelyhood that the Vfl will be used as a test case. 

With life expected to be back to (somewhat) normal next year the Chinese virus will be less a deterant to keeping the league state based - but who knows this time last year i thought this year would have a lot more normality than what we have seen.

The year 2022 ?? Who knows. The last few months are the worst since the covid started. Lots of anger out there. Not making predictions for 2022. No idea what the year 2022 will bring to us. Lets pray for some sort of a normal life watching VFL footy. I wont hold my breath though.

Think Robbo's prediction of 21 teams looks likely. Maybe 22 teams if Tassie come in ? Would like nothing better than watching a VFL game live having a few cold cans and catching up with mates in 2022.

The answer is in our own hands/arms if you want some sort of normal life including the footy next year GET VACCINATED! Im already double dosed.

Whilst i agree that vacine is our best solution (im fully vacinated) what my concern is that it really isnt as great a solution as we first thought. Israel has shown that the vacines lose a lot of effectiveness after a very short time and illnesses in their country is on the rise again.
