Re: Season 2020

I think the proposed cup/conference system is a sensible way to play some football in a hugely disrupted year. It strikes the right balance between being practical, achievable with the constraints and engaginf for players. It also reduces risk of spreading virus if there is a second wave in mid win...

Re: Season 2020

with FFSA press release today Community football can start June 19 that gives an extra 2 weeks. If this allows for a 16 week rather than 14 week then only 2 midweek catch up games are required. Surely a real season can be had. Heard today of a non competitive season without promotion etc. This woul...

Re: Season 2020

Can’t agree more must be a competitive season even if we can’t fit 18 games in - for teams like Port Pirie rather than midweek they could have 2 - 6 point games drawn randomly - 1 home, 1 away so for example we could play them in Pirie for 6 points and they could play Raptors away for 6 points if yo...

Either a season is finished or it isn't? Until something is mathmatically certain then you can't award a winner. 2019/20 SPL Winner - seltic* If clubs and associations agree otherwise you can. If they decide to finish the season now, it's legal and that's it. May not seem right and will give people...

Re: Season 2020

Subject to not having a second wave, whatever happens this season will certainly be treated as a one-off. To maintain reasonable fairness, I suggest initial prelim phase over 9 rounds i.e. play each other once. In Premier leagues, top four then play off to decide the year's champion. Bottom two and...

It's important to see what clubs are thinking. Having come across from the UK, I've always admired how 'professional' the Amateur League was, but sometimes this can become elitist. I've played for Taxi Teams and Pub teams and you turn up and play often twice a week and in conditions that quite simpl...

Re: Season 2020

The association need to start being creative, to allow an 18 game season to be completed. Yep no cup - agree! However, let's take Sunday Div 1 for example. You have PHE, Vale, Gardens, Ghan and West Beach?? who have cricket at their complex. Now, why can't the league structure the fixture list so t...

Re: Season 2020

what would you suggest? Already made a suggestion, look at earlier posts. Not trying to belittle other ideas by the way, just think if the competition is to have credibility, it has to be played on merits of a proper season, ie home and away. If it's shortened to anything less, I can see that the h...

Re: Season 2020

Why settle for 9 or 18 matches as the only binary options? If an 18 game season is not possible, then why not take a leaf out of Scotlands book, with a split after each team has played each other once. Top 5 play each other again (reverse not being able to drop below fifth), bottom 5 play each othe...

9 games, may as well not bother at all. Player does a hammy and misses half a season or more. Forget cricket requirements - you can use alternative pitches if and when needed.

I agree that a full 18 game league season should be the objective...but I don't think that's realistic for several reasons: - we are unlikely to be able to kick a ball in large enough groups to train (let alone play) before June 1 (at best) based on NRL plans for NSW community sport - which are the...

Re: Season 2020

Could also look at playing mid week games, so 2 games a week to get all 18 games in and not have to play too late into the year. Start mid June could play 18 games (no cup) by early October.
