We asked multiple times to go down, but the league are firm on their decision.


Id love to hear the leagues response to that comment, I’m certain there would be very good reasoning why you’re still in D6. Without intentionally being too harsh I personally believe the league has done pretty well to make allowances for 4 clubs to only field an A grade side as in years gone by you just simply wouldn’t exist. Fielding a single senior side in a C grade competition isn’t the answer to returning a club to multiple grades. If it does succeed history shows they become cellar dwellers in lower grades/leagues long term. Post Covid has thrown up many curveballs

When did you ask though?

I'm not on the committee, so I can't comment on exact dates/times. I just know its been multiple times.
Obviously one of those times was after they told us we have to play A grade, so probably a little late at that point.

Back to the original question though, If you need multiple seasons with only 1 team in a c grade division then your days are numbered (in any competition across SA - Excluding Riverland Independent’s for obvious reasons).

As I mentioned a few posts above, anyone that comes back from that find themselves battling in the lower divisions long term. There’s nothing wrong with battling clubs in the lower divs, however it’s far from ideal and realistically it’s not a viable option.

Agree its not ideal, but if the club has a plan and needs time to execute on it then surely its better than letting the club die? Or is rationalisation what the AdFL want?

Adelaide is small, footy community is small.. people talk - people probably know more about what’s going on at clubs than the league at times.

Aaron Sorre to kick 38 goals and single handedly hold off a rampant Eastern Park. :lol:

Seriously, you'd have to give them a 150 point start to make a game of it. :lol:

Nah in all seriousness: Eastern Park should win by a stupid amount, Lutheran will make light work of the units young team, Ingle Farm are huge flag favourites but I actually think Fitzroy knock them off by a couple goals this weekend, Houghton suck so Salisbury will win easy and the last game is irrelevant but Rosewater to get up at home by a few goals.. They are my proper predictions :)
