If they are going to bring down league players who have nowhere else to go, to play in the reserves competition, it is hardly an "academy" side is it?

There are so many inconsistencies and incongruities in all this, I just don't no where to start any more.

Can you even still bet on Port and Crows games?

And i read on a facebook page the hard done by Port fans complaining about the RULE they must play 17 fit AFL liste players . They agreed why complain

The seconds team was a class above the Eagles Summerton number 1 for port certainly had no issues getting the ball

Eagles look likely to have the perfect season Port couldnt beat them with a full side no other SANFL side will get near them dont rememberte last time a team went undefeated finals included.

Chambo,
totally correct. Their player can play where the Crows player go when not needed. The academy side should only be U18 with 1 or 2 mature aged players. Most SANFL side are just that anyway.
Why does Port even have an academy side in the reserves. Do they pay for this side and what function does it serve other to deprive SANFL sides and amateurs players. They can not priority draft them.
My conspiracy theory is that some of their management are SANFL and they set decisions in place during their tenure there. Evil or Very Mad Laughing

i think the whole concept of wearing a now defunct magpie jumper is just to appease the old time Port supporters, ther than that it serves no real purpose, they should be wearing a Power jumper of some description, i know there is a registration of afl jumpers by the afl but they could have a variation as do the Crows for sanfl football....unless my memory is incorrect the ''academy'' team well it WAS supposed to be only for a year or two

I've just had a look on the Magpies academy list http://www.portadelaidefc.com.au/football/players-and-coaches/academy-players.
Pardon my maths but there are 47 player on it. 26 of them must have not had a game in the 2's on Saturday. What game is port playing? No players under 20 as I see so what is going on. The crows have 27 and most are ammos or country listed. I cant see any marquee type player on that list.

I think initially, it was for the purpose you've mentioned, but also the clubs and SANFL were worried about future generations bypassing support for SANFL clubs altogether (ie, following the Centrals but also the Power at AFL level).

Don't think it matters now and the Magpies might aswell revedrt to the Power.
