DD they can dock them future points like the SANFL did to North Adelaide when they played 19 men in a final. They docked them 8 points for the following season. But on current non AFL assisted form the Crabs could go years without the penalty taking affect.

Winless and less than 50%. They should be encouraged to fold. Instead they will probably get a bunch of concessions.

something does need to be done about it; expansions have always failed: WAFL, SANFL or VFL, which given, such a history in three states makes the decision in 97 all the more ridiculous.

Hawthorn and CD have had a lot of resources thrown at them, Footscray were going to be thrown out of the league even with a warpped draft system to help it. Woodville did atually fold despite producing Malcolm Blight.

Most sensible thing for Peel to do and the WAFC (whatever that is) is for Peel to remain aligned with Fremantle for one more year which I think is what they are agreed to anyway and take their whack with premiership points deduction and maybe a 20k fine which won't hurt them too much going forward.

They will have probably have around 1.5m in the bank even after they finish paying their loan to the WAFC and they can hit the ground running the following year (2022) with targeted recruiting and a clean slate. By then Peel and Fremantle will go their separate ways.

The donkey's at the WAFC wouldn't be able to work that out. They are not capable.

To be honest DD I can't see Freo staying aligned next season given all AFL clubs will be reducing their lists by about 6 I understand to cut costs.

Get rid of the Crabs, they cant even be bothered to make the effort to field a ressies team. Split their zones between SF, EF and Perth, while adjusting all other zones to suit. It's a totally failed experiment, Freo no longer give a shite as theirs and WC's leftovers will go back to their clubs of origin or into a WAFL draft. Need to clean off this stain on the WAFL's history and get back to 8 clubs, 3 rounds of 7 games and a final 4.

How so DD?

They couldnt even field a Reserves team this season when you would think blokes from Mandurah/Rockingham/Pinjarra etc would be falling over themselves to get a game down there with no Freo interference at Peel this season?

I’m sure there was an article written that stated Peel benefited similarly to EP from the alignment. Because they still owe the WAFC doesn’t mean they are broke, they are taking the time they were given. I guess they felt it was too short notice to suddenly field a reserves side. I assume that will change next year or they will be in default of their license obligations as a WAFL club.
