Adult Football League 2 (AFL2) 2018


#186

It time to start deducting points from teams that give walkovers


#187

Agreed. Even O’Tooles with the year they’ve had fulfilled all of their fixtures.


#189

only 3rd and 4th play off.


#190

No point docking points. Fines are they way to go, pure lazy not getting a team togeather to fulfill a fixture


#191

I agree, a points deduction doesn’t affect them whatsoever but if there are fines for walkovers it might change


#192

There are fines for Walkovers.

€200 per game conceded.


#193

Obviously not a strong enough deterrent, make it €500 and 4 points deduction as well.


#194

Seems excessive when most teams will try to field and simply cant due to player shortage.Will you just end up teams moving from accepting the need to give a walkover to fielding ineligible players to avoid WO or clubs deciding not to enter a lower league team for financial risk of having risk of 2 walkovers?


#195

Some water boarding perhaps …


#196

Big difference between afl2 and afl12, lads at the lower end just want a match and it’s not overly serious, but giving walkovers at the business end of the league seriously warps results. I’d wonder was it couldn’t field a team or couldnt be arsed.


#197

I know plenty from the club and I doubt very much it was a case of not being arsed…I do know there’s a wedding of one of the players over the weekend so possibly as a small club couldn’t get enough together from both teams??


#198

Mary’s have given towers a walkover


#199

My jaysus, thats another farce, Fins would have to be seriously pissed off with that too


#200

If Fins beat Na Fianna, they are promoted


#201

Yes I know, but now they have to win, whereas they didnt have to if Marys got a result against Towers


#202

Sure Fins are getting the same from the Ballyboughal game so it’s swings & roundabouts really.
Irrespective of promotion permutations, walkovers simply should not happen at this level, end of story.


#203

Pity Fins v Na Fianna couldn’t be fixed for this weekend, then promotion playoff could have been played on the bank holiday weekend.


#204

Pretty sure it’s just pushed back no?


#205

Says on hill16 it’s conceded by Mary’s


#206

Possible solution, grade the punishments for walk overs …

€750+ for clubs 1st team conceding
€500 for their 2nd team conceding
€250 for 3rd or 4th team conceding
