I expect because it's in Olympics, powers that be want to establish it, but correct, no-one wants to play. They've been trying for years with all those cash prize tournaments at the beach, best they usually get is some average social players. Never know, could change based on what plan seems like.
Scott Freer at Woodville has done an excellent job on the boys side, was always going to push shit uphill with the girls. North have just looked and listened to hype, state champs were a disaster. And just looking at their social media it seems coaches must fit in with the program of a couple of experts, bad luck if you don't agree. Have to give kudos in their organisation, just seems like a lot of brainwashing going on. Getting rid of Adam Todd just to favour one coach was definitely a bad decision.
I've lost track with Norwood. They sacked Willie, then Rojo, brought in an Nbl1 GM, have they got someone in charge there, or another one of the Family?
Central's seem to change their mind and vision every year as well as personell. When you have Pero as your boys 16 and 18 coordinator, it's either desperate, stupid, or a bit of both. Apparently he makes Rupert take a back seat at his own training. Obviously no-one there remembers his efforts as North's jdo a few years back when they hit rock bottom.
Forestville girls seem to be going well but their boys program is the worst in competition, and doesn't seem to be getting better.
Sturt have taken a tumble from where they once were the gold standard, now they're down with the rest.
The rest have some good talent here and there. But surely gametime is more important than training so much as proposed. How will club's respond in terms of fees? Still costs as much hiring training venues, but no game carrot at the end. Can see kids breaking away and either finding a good social competition and workout with external trainers, rather than pay fees and glorified scrimmages. Rashad, Joey, KB and the other academy style programs will think their Christmas's have come at once.
Maybe it does have some legs in lower grades if they organise the development side of things well, but 1s and 2s should be exempted from this. Most are already getting extra training, and theoretically have the best club coaches. The kids want to play, as evidenced by the whole covid shutdown. If someone is smart, they could organise their own breakaway "superleague" and capitalise on just creating a non affiliated competition on a Friday night. It's really just there for the taking after this genius plan. Sounds like a lot of stadiums will just be sitting there idle.
