    If I was a Stockton player and my game was called off today and then another club comes along tomorrow and gets to play on my ground. I would be up in arms and having harsh words with my committee thatís for sure.

    Hard to find referees for 8am kickoffs

    My sons best mate plays there so as families we talk quite a bit about our sons experiences.The dad told me the week before their home game against Magic was washed out but Magic organised Speers point to play on even though it was a Rosebuds home game.The Rosebud kids and coaches all agreed to play the catch up even though they could have taken the point from the washout.He said they knew they would get beat but everyone agreed the only way to get better was to play as many games as they could.He has a lot of thoughts both good and bad of whats going on over there but my sons club has issues of their own so its probably more about how you go about fixing them.He is a big fan of the new youth system proposed as it will suit a club like theirs.

    Plenty of clubs up the top of the table happy to have draws too if we're being honest.

    I couldn’t imagine a washout draw helping the buds anyway. In fact, any team that is happy to take a draw rather than play a game doesn’t have the kids best interests at heart. Good on the buds for playing the game.

    True. But it's all about Magic winning remember. They couldnt give a damn about the buds.

    So looks like any club can scramble for playable ground

    Or instead offer club trial instead.
    That way every gets to play which is most important, right? and worry less about points

    Can you blame them though?They are competing for 1st place,and its clear they arent the only club who have the same mindset.

    Theres still a bit of confusion regarding this.Our club is under the impression that all games washed out (whether they are already catch ups from 1st round) will NOT be replayed.Ive been told otherwise by other parents though so who the hell knows.

    No issue with any club finding alternate arrangements to get the games played. The issue will only be with clubs who pick and choose which games they relocate based on the opposition

    um. point 2 is directly related to point 1 so overall it's an issue

    So no problem with bottom club refusing to change ground at short notice to deny said winning team? If one club wants to win at all cost then it must be ok for any club to deny them. Pick your poison

    Yeah thatís northerns fault but if clubs are going to pick and choose which games they move heaven and earth to play and which games they cancel 2 days out, then thatís on the clubs

    How is playing a game winning at all cost? Finding a way to get the game played should be commended and if it means that the club give up their designated training night at speers point to play a catch up game then thatís exactly what should be happening. Itís literally what northern suggested clubs do.

    The game was never going to be a 0-0 draw as it was a round 1 washout catch up game. I too have a friends boy playing at the buds

    Im not interested in the blame game in any of this.Luckily results wont matter for my kids team this year.He wants to play every game possible and wants to test himself against the best.His team is building towards something and a trophy or a spoon wont change that.Im confident the team that wins the premiership and grand final will deserve it no matter how it unfolds.
