Didn't say they wouldn't?

I said I couldn't comment on the SAAFL because I won't go and watch any of it because it has absolutely no atmosphere and barely any supporters. GSFL, HFL(both divs) and RMFL I watch a fair bit of because they all have big crowds and good country footy atmosphere!!

I think you'd find Mount Compass, Hahndorf and Meningie would all give the best div 1 sides a fair shake!

Sorry scottyroo, I have seen a few games here and there when I can, but not enough to comment on the standard of the whole competition.
And not having juniors follow, not many grounds have decent parking. A long with what I have heard from recruits from div 1 amateurs to the country I have spoken with all have said exactly the same thing, that country footy leagues atmosphere is what draws them out to these leagues. Obviously div 1 standard is excellent, and probably the closest thing to SANFL footy. I'm not having a dig at the standard, but you can't beat country footy atmosphere in my opinion.

Independent footy is about C3 these days, I suspect.

Yet Waikerie would match it with any of the top teams in country footy IMO
So you've seen everything have you?

Seems like they were far ahead of everyone else this year. Possible.

Brighton are the best test case at the moment, obviously dominated Div 3 as expected, next year will be interesting in Div 2, I suspect they will make the finals but dunno if they will be in the top 2-3.

I believe Div 1 would be the best under SANFL, the top 10 players in country v Div 1 teams would be very similar in talent/skill. Div 1 would get the top country teams in depth though.

Just noticed this thread, I'll throw my two cents worth:

1. SAAFL Div 1
2. SAAFL Div 2
3. HFL Div 1
4. GSFL
5. RFL/RMFL
6. SAAFL Div 3

We all know money plays a role but tend to agree with him.

Having watched a fair bit of country footy in the last year the atmosphere and culture of country footy is a million miles ahead of amateur footy imho.
