So who's coming up to Bendigo?

I love the game up there, been a couple of years though after the last one was moved to Windy Hill Mad

BUt hopefully its a better day than the last one I remember, had a mini tornado during the week and there was talk of if they could use the ground it copped so much rain, players were unrecognisable all day except for the fact Willy were the ones with the ball as they won by 100 points Laughing

Always enjoy the weekend up there, but with talk of Bucks returning might bring a few more along?

all roads lead to Bendigo, will make the drive across if Bucks plays, but seeing the boys are as close as they get to home, may make the trip regardless to get a first hand look at the likes of Wellingham, Dawes, Brown & Reid...

The QEO is all of 5 minutes up the road so I'll definitely be there.

I'd say it's fairly obvious the reason why the game has been moved.

All reports are that QEO is in excellent condition, so the state of the ground isn't the reason.

Hmm, maybe it's got something to do with the return of #5!

They report its because of the ground condition, mind you Collingwood would be happy that Bucks will not spent extended time in the car getting to & from the ground.

Personally I hope he plays Richmond not the Bendigo Bombers, not much difference in the standard of the opposition... Laughing

2 years in a row they've shifted the Willi game from the QEO to Windy Hill. To say that I'm pissed is an understatement. This coupled with the TV coverage, or lack there off, is really frustrating.

Dale, I saw the ground on Sunday, it is terrible...

and this in today's bendigo paper....

Quote:
"In our opinion, the ground is in a bad state," Lodewijks said.

There were six matches contested by All Seasons Bendigo Football-Netball League clubs on the QEO last weekend.

"With council permitting training on the QEO this week it will suffer from at least two more sessions," Lodewijks said.

"There will then be three BFL matches on Saturday, a VFL reserves game on Sunday, and then the senior clash.

"We believe the ground will not recover from such extensive use to be at the required VFL standard for Sunday's game."

Lodewijks said the Bombers voiced concerns about the QEO surface in the lead-up to the previous home game against Northern Bullants.

"We have been in constant contact with the council regarding the playing surface of the QEO for most of the 2007 season," Lodewijks said.

"It is hard to believe that this week, training is allowed when the ground is in worse condition."

The Bombers must win their last three home-and-away games to play finals.

No probs Maddie, but I based my comment on what someone said on a VFL board, so they must have the mail also.
