WAFL split of AFL alignment

Posted by: Tom Atkinson | 31 October, 2012 - 11:28 AM
7 WAFL clubs left furious with the WAFC

The alignment of  West Coast with East Perth and Fremantle  with Peel has disappointed the remaining WAFL clubs Hear from Eagles Trevor Nisbett, Peel's John Ditchburn, WP's Brett Raponi and head of WAFL Presidents Hayden Raitt.

 

 

 

Eagles CEO Trevor Nisbett joined Sports Today.

 

 

Peel President John Ditchburn spoke on Sports Today.

 

 

Meantime Chairman of the WAFL Council of Presidents Hayden Raitt told Steve Mills the Eagles and Dockers have got their way - after the WA Football Commission approved alliances with two WAFL sides.

West Coast will join with East Perth - while Peel will link with Fremantle - from 2014.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Serves the non-aligned clubs right. They bled East Perth dry with tiny recruiting zones and then stopped us recruiting from the east. Suck eggs. Go the Mighties . . .

  • All of you complainers, take it to your clubs AGMs move motions for your club to have a vote of no confidence in the WAFC, enough people do it, in enough clubs things may very well happen, check with your own WAFL clubs constitutions as you will probably need to put a motion in writing in a time frame before you can do it.

  • This is a disgrace.
    All those young kids that play juniors like my son that eventually go through`Development squads will no longer get a look in, My son has given his guts to east perth, he might as well just give it up because The draftees will be pushed to play because West Coast are keeping the club a float with big $$$ ,and who do you think they will play??Money changes verything ,RIP East Perth, your dead to me.

  • I am a west perth fan and feel Brett thas done a great job. Feel very sorry for EP fans. Cooper and Walton are pathetic

  • I cant believe the arrogance of the WAFC, why dont they engage with the true WAFL stakeholders... the MEMBERS!! Frank Cooper has a lot to answer for in pursuing this. I am West Perth member & I feel for the East Perth supporters who are having their tradition compromised.... leave the WAFL alone!!! What is wrong with the AFL listed players being spread throughout the comp, they then will play against each other and get truly tested.
