North Ballarat beaten by nearly 200 points in the VFL today by Richmond. It's fucking sad what has become of a once-great competition. The AFL has completely ruined it.

What the fuck.

How hard can it be to run a proper, competitive feeder competition that isn't compromised by higher leagues. Other sports do this quite effectively; the AFL has no goddamn clue.

This is a very poor quality game of football.

It fucking stank for a while there, thank goodness we've kicked away just in the last little bit.

Adelaide/West Coast/GWS the best teams for mine, in that order. Dogs you can't write off for obvious reasons. Richmond, too early to call. We'll be up there but can't see us winning on the last Saturday in September. If Sydney are able to make the eight no one will want to play them.

Hawthorn had the best forward line only two years ago. Look at it now. Absolutely hopeless, can't score.

Geez this isn't much of a game is it. I came home early from work to watch this?!

Hawthorn have completely given up on resembling anything like a competitive football team in the last quarter.

I reckon Clarko/list management might go a bit of a trading spree end of year. I'm talking trying to offload a Gunston for a 1st rounder etc.

I want to cry I'm so happy. It really is alarming how much Hawks have dropped off.

Yeah, I never thought Hawthorn could win, but there's nothing like a heated rivalry to spark a team and create a good contest. I assumed this would be entertaining. Now it's hard to believe the Hawks got within 14 early in the third.

Little over a fortnight ago they kicked 6 against us in the first quarter ...

It's a staggering drop off from supposedly finishing around 9-10th to being a massive chance for bottom 4. I can't comprehend it. Clarko's going to have to do a full rebuild and if anyone should be given a full licence to, it's him.

I'm starting to think we have a chance against Hawthorn. What a season.

this following the off-season ejection of Frankston and the erasure of the legacy of Springvale Scorpions. Port's struggles.

It could have been so different had it been managed appropriately as a feeder to the AFL.

If one of the current Victorian AFL teams were no longer able to continue (or relocate), there isn't really any place for these fans to go, and we're talking about 30,000+ members.
