There are some listed in the 2s that may not be the "best" and yet we are almost obliged to play them at the level. Begley, Clarke, Ridley, Mutch, then there are the new rookies.
In particular, when VFL captain & Vice Captain are appointed, they will not be an AFL listed players. I believe it will be NOB, / Ben McNeice, as such they will have to play.
For example, the VFL B&F, from last year, HeppA doesnt get a game in the 2s ?
Nick O'Brien not good enough and yet he is the first player announced on the VFL list ?
Ben McNeice trains with Essendon AFL players and doesnt even make it in the VFL side?
It raises some interesting questions re the way the VFL side is managed, as regards VFL players. Do we just bring in top ups from local feeder clubs when our listed players are injured ?
I dont want to even start talking about injuries to AFL listed players , but if we dont have many ( 4 is great, 8 is about average, 12 is a disaster ) then we will have problems selecting the VFL side
