VFL 2nd Preliminary Final Preview: Collingwood vs Footscray

With the VFL Magpies into their first Preliminary Final since 2009, the duty falls to me to write what passes for a preview. And when I say duty, I do so rather sarcastically. Besides, the blog’s due for another thread, wouldn’t you say? I readily confess that I was a bit pessimistic going into the …

VFL 2nd Qualifying Final Preview: Collingwood vs Williamstown

Before I begin, a quick word of apology. At the start of the year, it was my intention to bring more VFL content to this blog, as a way to pitch in and help keep the joint ticking over as much as helping influence conversation of the state of things generally in 2016. For a …
