Safe to say that South Hobart will win the B division. No doubt they will be dropping as many as possible to ensure they win something. FFT really need to stop team stacking.

Read the rules, am sure south will have after last years hiccup

The rule is that no one is cup tied until the semi finals. Considering South didn't make the semi final, they can drop whoever they want. Personally, I think that is a terrible rule. The big teams can and will drop who ever they can to win titles

Actual no you had to play one game in round robin to Qualify.

wrong, they chsnged last years rule

I remember Callan Paske breaking a wrist in a futsal game and soldiering on without complaint. Definitely has the heart of a lion. What a specimen!

Its all good and well to play one decent game, but lets start getting some more performances like sunday's together and we will hopefully be on the right track.

ps. yes shakas your goal deserves a mention(20 out on the right peg)and Damo Obriens bullshit goal, chipping boro's keeper from centre circle, raowsers !!


That's kingborough's weak point, the keeper.

#32,are you complaining because you have nothing to stack your team with?For goodness sake play football and stop whining because your opponents legs were longer.If you promise not to interfere with how they use their registered player they promise not to interfere with how you use your registered players
