Re: Saturday and Sunday in 2024. Why?

I understand the history of how it started, but is it still necessary to have split leagues on specific days? Could they not come together by now and increase the standard? Have three divisions then split north/south below? Merge Collegiate? I’m not OCD but man I’d love it all to be neat and more p...

Re: Sunday Div 4a Cove FC v Maiwand FC Ugly Finish

Re: 2024 season

Saw a cracking game in Div 2 yesterday, Ghan v Adelaide Eagles. 2-2 draw. Decent standard displayed by both teams, great end-to-end football.

BeNatural wrote: Mon May 06, 2024 1:58 pm Why so many forfeits in the Challenge Cup this weekend?
Greek Easter, low div teams not being that excited about Cups, illness outbreaks, and 2 Saturday clubs being asked to play on a Sunday were probably all contributing factors.

In my experience there is a handful of 'good' people at that club, and a lot of, the other kind. They're a strange club.

Re: Nothing to see here.

We should rename the A League, which google constantly confuses with me looking for "a league", with something more descriptive, say, Australian Football League, AFL for short.

And we could call the SAASL, the Adelaide Football League, AFL for short.

Yes but that's just caused by the poor performance of their A grade through the season, not the review of this C grade game.

Re: Intra State Association Series

Saturday 2-4 Sunday.

Hopefully next year they do it at the end of season as a round robin. Maybe CSL were in the same position but I know both Saturday and Sunday had player availablity issues, as players were either away or focused on winning their leagues.

Agree that the Liverpool v Arsenal game was a great match to watch, it was loaded with skill, tackles and some top class saves.
