Dear Gillon,

In regards to the AFL's recent consideration to include a VFL/AFL Museum at Etihad Stadium (or any other Venue/Location).
I strongly advocate for the inclusion of the VFA in any potential exhibit.

The Victorian Football Association enjoyed a proud, rich history stretching more than 120 years until its demise in 1996.
It served as the basis for VFL foundation clubs, and remained a strong competition, once their breakaway was complete, for almost a century that followed.

Several VFA champions are icons of the game, including Fred Cook (Port Melbourne), Jim "Frosty" Miller (Dandenong),
Bob Bonnett (Port Melbourne), and VFA president Alex Gillion, known as the pioneer of Sunday football.
The former four should also be considered for inclusion in the Australian Football Hall of Fame, for their contribution to the game.

There is still strong interest in the VFA and associated memorabilia, as can be seen on its Facebook page, and the contribution of the VFA to our wonderful game is surely deserved of recognition alongside that of the VFL/AFL.

Sincerely,

Shane Wilson
