Yes would not miss a footy record, but do miss the old style when the teams were lined up together on a oval and you could place every player then. Of course not now possible as teams don't know who is in and who is out right up to the last hour and sometimes less, but a shame as it made interesing reading also how many times each team played and high and lowest scores by Marc Fiddian. Every club should put in their social or players notes weekly even if your team is down the ladder ,supporters still want to know what's happening at your club.

Ive kept almost all of mine since the late 90s. Someone else here will have a decent collection of footy records going back many, many years.

Great to read over old footy records and have many from 50's 60's 70's 80's.
Would not mind if records went up to $2.50 if more news and interesing articles re vfl were in it.

One of the issues with the VFL record is that for a real depth in content you need multiple writers. I'm pretty sure that there is really only a couple of people who work on content for Record these days.
