Eh, so I was wrong, not by much and still a chance that it will all be shut down again. Also, guess which finger I'm holding up to the screen right now...
Why so negative? Be grateful we’re in a position of improvement. There’s already been enough detriment this year.
Just look forward to having a hit on Saturday with your mates, regardless of how foreign it may feel

I prefer the word pessimistic...and at least I'm rarely disappointed.

So my understanding is clubs are allowed 20 inside, outside 10 allowed in groups, and changerooms still closed for the foreseeable future.
Clubs can set up an outdoor bar pretty easily. In all honesty, on a nice day clubs would be lucky to have 5 people inside at the best of times. Changerooms really the only difference.
Bring on the beers.
 
Well what a great finish to the season.
Don’t think too many would have picked NEW & RES to win their respective grades.
It was a shame to see Bundoora Park collapse like they did yesterday as well, hopefully they can come back stronger next season.
I was able to see the end of the Barclay final. What a contest, and what a finals series.
Bring on 2021/22!

It is an interesting set up at Epping I guess. At the end of the day though, it was only a one day comp this year. DC, Epping, Heidelberg and Lower all failed to make finals. Possibly just didn’t suit the format. Do they all bounce back?
I think so.
Epping have really good depth as shown in their twos and threes winning the flag wouldn't be the end of the world if they lost a few down there
 
Agree. Should shut it down. Offers very little
It needs to be better. Social media is one article/subject at a time so need to search to find what you need. Websites still serve a purpose and if a club wanted to attract a player and they went to the website ... they would see a very ordinary offer and puts all clubs in a poor light. Just run it better. After all we have admin people getting paid by the clubs and clubs are not getting what they pay for.

They’ve managed to post all the award winners from the presentation night PowerPoint, but updated nothing else haha

It just goes to show how backward the powers that be are on the DV board. Time to start fresh and get some more relevant, modern and inclusive people in the major roles. The website and unfair fixturing (obviously not this covid season), is just a small slice of the pie in the grand scheme DV issues.

No predominant multicultural teams accepted or a stand alone women’s comp in the DV yet, how can that be in 2021?

Some people in the DV I’ve spoken to, claim it’s due to the dinosaurs in charge not being up with the times. Some even consider it misogynistic and racist that this hasn’t eventuated yet, it’s hard to argue against them TBH.

We need new people who can get the wheels in motion for those 2 glaring holes as that should have already been done by now.

Cancel culture is up and about, so no better time to cancel those that have been sitting on the DV board for far too long.
 
Womens team I agree, but in saying that DVCA does have a girls comp which is a better pathway to a womens comp once the girls progress through the junior age groups. But given the current success of the Aust Womens Team DVCA need to catch on quicker. Not sure I agree with the multicultural point. Community sport and clubs should be a reflection of the general community and be for all to participate. All DVCA have players from various backgrounds and having those players at any club help break down any barriers that may exist.
But yes the DVCA Executive is an irrelevant group of underperformers that can only organise two things: Grand Final lunch - where they get free drinks and Preso night where they also get free drinks.

You raise great points regarding the women’s league.
However I have to disagree regarding your view on the multiculturalism aspect. I think we possess a fantastic example of diverse inclusion
