is that to help the stand alone teams make money? or win games?

if it is to make money it is probably a good thing.

why are there only 6 games at PRO?

AFL reserves only get 8 home games , 6 @ PRO & 2 @ Beaconsfield

VFL stand alones get 10 home games

VFL / AFL alignments get 9 home homes

AFL Reserves get 8 home games

because of the alignment with Cardinia Shire, we also played twice there in 2017

Cardinia is a growth shire so the club thinks if it gets the kids when they're young then they have them for life.

Same reason Melbourne went to Cranbourne (Casey).
Not dumb at all.
