Frankston to play Big V SCM and SCW in 2014

Any truth to this? The board has been split and Nathan Jolly dead against it.

Their Men's Youth Championship team will likely drop a level, but their SEABL men and women won't budge.

Finally some other SEABL club other than Knox for anonymous heros to pick the crap out of and spread unfounded damaging BigV rumours about.

#435858 - you a Hamlet fan? I feel you "doth protest too much"...!

First, Frankston have been copping some flack here for some time so its not case of finally at all - there has been a lot of Frankston sniping going on. I have seen no evidence to say it is warranted but it has been occurring - which at least suggests quite a few disaffected people.

Second, it turns out much of what has been said about Knox has been pretty on the money and not unfounded or damaging necessarily. They appear to have done a reasonable job over the last couple of years of self inflicted harm if what we have seen from their President and in the media is any indication.

It looks to me like Tex has heard a rumour, possibly from a Board Member, and is seeking confirmation. Its not as though he launched on here and claimed Frankston was broke, couldn't afford their venue and were about to call in the liquidators... Tex is guilty of sensationalizing the topic header but not much else.

Frankston won't play Big V....it would hurt the club and they would loose alot of players in the U18's to the other clubs in the area

Tex sounds like he knows a little and is just putting something out there, at no point does Tex bag the club like plenty of other people do to clubs on this forum. I do know that there has been a few people in key psoitions at Frankston differeing in opinion.

Interesting that Jolly is against it seeing when he coached in the Big V he was saying how SEABL clubs didnt realise how good Big V actually was. Very interesting. I wonder why he has changed his tune.

Why not? How would Big V Championship look if Knox, Frankston and Albury all went there, those 3 teams along with the top 4 from Champ this year who were SEABL quality and all of a sudden the gap closes and Big V present a much more affordable top tier option, possibly for teams like Dandy and Sandy to come back?

with the NBL going alone the BA plan to develop the new tier below that seems to be dead. This doesnt sit well for SEABL as they were going to be that new underpinning league for the NBL. I can see SEABL struggling if only from a cost view point, so we might see SCM get a few more inclusions now. With the DL merging with the big V YL it makes it more achievable. If I was the new Big V CEO I would be very agressive in my talks with the Vic Based SEABL clubs right now.

to become a strong comp like that, with those 3 new clubs, do gain respect the BigV would have to drop all the terrible sides out - IE, the sherbrookes & werribees.
and definitely not let sides like McKinnon come in

(like you said melbourne boy, the top 4)

Its great to hypothesize about those three clubs going into BIG V but it wont happen. Big V needs to focus on its existing member clubs and stablizing them.Then go and look at some potential expansion clubs in the growth corridors.Corio Bay was a great example of that.

How would including SEABL clubs in Big V take anything away from stabilizing the existing clubs? All it does is make the top division stronger.

Big V needs to focus on its existing clubs to make sure they are all financially viable.The three clubs mentioned have made no formal approach to Big V about transferring across.

Nice disinformation attempt HD!

"The three clubs mentioned have made no formal approach to Big V about transferring across."

Does not mean they have not discussed it in depth locally, at Board or executive level. It is pretty clear it has been canvassed at Knox at least.

Melbourne boy.

If you really thing any of the big v champ teams are SEABL level you have just lost all credibility.
Corio Bay won the Big V and are one stud import and a high quality Aussie short of being SEABL level.

Ballarat had only 7 wins and Canberra 8 wins from 28 games in SEABL would both be stronger than Corio Bay. And Lets face it both were barely SEABL level this year...

How do you see Corio Bay going against the seabl top 8, Dandenong, Mt Gambier, Bendigo, Nunawading, Geelong, Hobart, Sandringham, Kilsyth... ?

Even SEABL teams who missed the finals are ahead of Corio Bay. NW Tasmaina, Brisbane, Frankston, Knox and Albury would all account for the Big Vs best.

Cost of SEABL entry is going up by 12% across the next 2 years. Clubs do not like the idea of an expensive comp becoming more expensive.

As much as it sounds simple, some current SEABL clubs would be stupid if they did not consider a move to State Champ.

I know Ballarat have discussed it but are afraid of what would happen if they lost the status of being a SEABL program.
