Just looking at the VFL Fixture, what a joke.

22 Teams, 19 rounds , play 16 games & have 3 byes each.

You would think that you would play as many of the 21 opponents as possible yeah, 16 games so don't play 5 teams at all.

No, we & I assume others have double ups & we play Brisbane, GWS & Sandringham twice & don't play Carlton, Coburg, Port Mel, Gold Coast, Southport, Aspley, Sydney or Footscray at all

*smile* joke

VFL tickets available now, Intix is following in the steps of Ticketek & Ticketmaster in providing shite service !

Took my 25 minutes for my barcode to work & then when I got the tickets I printed them & see they have the start time as 3pm, this is clearly incorrect , start time is 2pm
Says 3pm on one page, then 2pm on others. Says 2pm on the confirmation email I got then further down under match details is says 2.10pm.
edit: the email says the ticket will be in my Richmond Football Club Account (they haven't come through yet) but it is also attached to the email and says 3.pm. what a mess

I used my barcode - seemed to go through smoothly for me but then I find I've been charged...

Yep what's with that? Is it a lack of grounds? Or umpires? Makes no sense. Why merge nsw and qld with vic if you're not gonna play everyone? Why have 3 byes? Bizarre.

So we have a bye next week - along with 7 other clubs.

WTF is that all about when the season just started?

Not enough grounds? Not enough umpires? Or security guards to keep us Covid safe?

Makes no sense.

This new "VFL" competition is rubbish.

Very good question but nothing to do with Covid, it's been happening for years. This year we have byes in rounds 4, 19 & 16. The last VFL season in 2019 we had byes in 3, 12 & 21. In 2018 it was byes in 2, 12 & 20.

It's a good question to ask someone at the club or the AFL /VFL.

I have sent emails out asking what's the go with this, I think it's stupid as well, how do you keep players fit to come in for other players missing now as subs for maybe 5 minutes a game (Patrick Naish on the weekend having to play two games in 16 hours), concussion players out for 12 days, etc.

Let U know when I hear something :)

It is a genuine disgrace what the AFL suits have done to this once proud comp.
Could be time for a break away and include Tassie....

VFL Media Release:
Update to VFL Premiership Season


The AFL has today announced an update to the 2021 VFL Premiership Season.
As a result of the evolving COVID-19 situation across the country, previous interruptions to scheduled games and an extension to the Victorian State Government lockdown, the 2021 VFL home-and-away season has finished. The league has confirmed the match ratio system has determined the final ladder positions ahead of the 2021 VFL Finals Series starting on Saturday September 4, 2021.
The finals will retain the top eight clubs but in an elimination format should they be able to start on the weekend of September 4. The AFL has put a contingency in place should there be any further delays.
AFL Head of Talent Pathways and State League Competitions Tristan Salter said the VFL community continues to navigate its way through a challenging year for sport and although the conclusion to the season looks different, it was the only system to reward a Premier.
“The 2021 season has been a challenge to everyone connected to football. The AFL is very proud of how all VFL clubs, players, officials, supporters and corporate partners managed through a difficult year and kept their communities connected,” Salter said.
“All 22 clubs continue to play a vital role in keeping their suburban and regional networks engaged. We acknowledge the importance they have played as pillars of their local communities and remain so important to growing and nurturing our national code.”
“We’ve seen 107 exceptional games of football this season with the engagement in the VFL in 2021 highlighting how important football is to so many people across Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. The VFL maintains a strong presence in the football landscape and the role it plays in the growth of our game should never be underestimated.”
“We have witnessed a very even competition so far and the compilation of the top eight presents an exciting Finals Series ahead. We will continue to make changes that best manage the current environment, progresses our season and protects the health and safety of those in our game and the wider community,” Salter said.
While COVID-19 continues to impact the community, the health and welfare of our players and the community remains the priority and all matches will operate in a safe manner anchored in the advice of respective governments, public health officials and medical experts. Strict protocols will be in place to protect players, officials, staff and the wider public at all matches when they return.



2021 VFL Premiership Ladder – Match Ratio Formula
Position Club G W L D Win % Percentage
1 Footscray 10 10 0 0 100 169.74
2 Southport 10 9 1 0 90 180.72
3 Box Hill Hawks 10 8 2 0 80 167.7
4 Geelong 9 7 2 0 77.77 167.3
5 Casey Demons 9 7 2 0 77.77 166.6
6 Williamstown 9 6 2 1 72.22 136.41
7 Collingwood 9 6 3 0 66.66 92.68
8 GWS Giants 11 7 4 0 63.63 94.35
9 Werribee 9 5 4 0 55.55 147.49
10 Frankston 11 6 5 0 54.54 103.79
11 Richmond 10 4 5 1 45 103.4
12 Carlton 9 4 5 0 44.44 101.28
13 Sandringham 9 4 5 0 44.44 94.13
14 Gold Coast Suns 10 4 6 0 40 76.8
15 North Melbourne 10 4 6 0 40 56.95
16 Coburg 10 3 7 0 30 95.08
17 Brisbane Lions 10 3 7 0 30 65.71
18 Northern Bullants 10 3 7 0 30 62.61
19 Sydney Swans 10 2 8 0 20 88.9
20 Essendon 10 2 8 0 20 64.41
21 Port Melbourne 9 1 8 0 11.11 67.42
22 Aspley 10 1 9 0 10 73.01


The 2021 VFL Finals Series will revert to a full knockout competition, with first playing eighth, second v seventh, third v sixth and fourth v fifth in the first week. Week Two would then see the four winners matched-up in the VFL Preliminary Final.
A further reduction that only allows a two-week finals series would mean teams 5-8 are eliminated and it will be first v fourth and second v third for a spot in the VFL Grand Final.
VFL Finals Games will continue to be shown with broadcast partners the Seven Network, Foxtel and Kayo.
As the only interstate team, the AFL is continuing to work with Southport to explore all possible arrangements to have them play in the 2021 VFL Finals after finishing second.
The AFL will explore all options to investigate ways to get fans back to the footy as safely and as soon as possible.
VFL and VFL Club digital channels will have all the ticketing information for fans as each weekend’s games are released and fans can return to matches.

Weren't Tassie supposed to be joining VFL in 22 or 23 ?
