    Cancel final series and if we are in lockdown until October 10, let the 3 clubs Jaffas Maitland and Edgy play their last 2 matches. It would mean playing 5 games , say October 23 and 30.
    You don't have to play all games , just get the Premier sorted. All 3 clubs would be in the same position preparation wise
    Round 17
    Maitland vs Broadmeadow
    Jaffas vs Charleston
    Edgeworth vs Adamstown
    Round 18
    Edgeworth vs Broadmeadow
    Maitland vs Jaffas
    Could you imagine the crowds at the round 18 games
    Where is the incentive for Charlestown and Adamstown to play one game? Even for Magic to play two

    They don't need an incentive, they are in a comp that goes for 18 rounds and if Northern deemed those rounds to be played the clubs play or forfeit , but I think they would play.
    All academic anyway after today Goats, I agree with your earlier post, we aren't getting out of this anytime soon enough to finish the season

    Well Northern have cancelled it now and awarded Premiers on a points per game basis.

    Though I note "Lambton Jaffas president Scott Douglas said clubs fully respected and supported the decision to end 2021 Premier Competitions seasons." Bit poor to include the Lambton President considering his team are declared Premiers because of the decision to announce Premiers. I'm sure his club is very supportive of that decision.

    Could've had the Vic Chairman of the standing committee make the comment.

    Believe the idea is to bring new Lambton into the comp next year which will further polite the comp, when they do it will be interesting to see where clubs like valo, Atown finish with 2 new NewFM teams in the comp.

    dilute? Maybe, but it could also give opportunity to others to find success.

    Relegation is a good thing if there is a chance to bounce back next year. If theres a 5 year wait it's just stupid.

    They should but also have the chance to be promoted when earned.

    To be honest, most grounds are shit.
    The jets don't even have 1, so should they be relegated. The issue isn't the grounds, it's the lack of improvement, or initiative from clubs, and the governing body. It's ground hog day every year, same predictable garbage.

    E.G Lakes blew all there money on pensioners, and still failed to improve ,cooks hill will do the same with DT's pensioners brigade in 2022. Valo and buds have been equivalent to pub teams the last 5 years +, and finished last and second last. But hey the grass isn't green enough. F me what's the focus here, quality of football or Hunter Valley Gardens as facilities

    Just a flat pitch would be nice. And another artificial complex in Newy somewhere.

    It isn't necessarily the clubs, the councils don't want clubs to improve the grounds. Plenty of NewFM clubs have stories of how they want to improve their grounds and even had the money to do it yet councils say no.
