    Maybe it's got to a stage that the market for afl has become so small on the nth side that it doesn't warrant a strictly singular northern competition anymore. Maybe the only answer is to put Mayne and Noosa back into qafl, Maroochydore and Caloundra into QFA and Aspley 3rds and Moreton Bay into qafa a. It's not the perfect solution, but it's better than the current situation. Let's face it, if Moreton & Aspley go through another poor season, they're not going to want stay at that level either ( like Nambour ) and the result will be players leaving those clubs for another club with a better chance of success. Under the current model, you could then end up with 5 or even 4 sides in the nth comp next year. I, for one, really feel for you blokes who love your footy up there, it's a mess, and from what I see, not of your making.

    Agree.

    Kedron finishing 3rd, then dropping down 2 divisions for a flag, then miraculously having enough for 2 teams 12 months later is an eye opener...

    At the end of the day though, footy is simply stronger in the southern suburbs of Brisbane, so the regionally based system was never going to work, especially in what is supposed to be Div 2 footy.

    Div 3 and 4 should be the regionally based comps, not Div 2.

    Honestly QAFL_Fan you have some good info and make some good comments but Kedron really?
    Would have thought you'd recall what happened last year??
    They made no secret of mass exits but trying to regroup and move up

    Depends who you talk to.

    they asked to move from QFA North to QAFA A originally. Which is obviously not a numbers issue.

    When they were knocked back from going to QAFA A they spat the dummy and dropped to QAFA B and claimed it had always been about numbers.

    You don't ask to move from a regional 2 team comp, to a lower level 2 team comp with signficantly more travel because you don't have numbers...
