    If an AFLQ employee instructed him to enter the arena and stop the game (as reported here) then you can hardly ping the president at the AFLQ tribunal for doing so!

    Then again, it IS AFLQ...!

    Yes, just commenting on what is reported here.

    PRevious posts suggest the President called AFLQ. The AFLQ employee instructed the President to blow the sirem, stop the game and enter the field of play.

    If he has done this, I find it hard to believe he could get penalised for it.

    If there is more to it than that, then so be it. I can only comment on what was reported here.

    I was at that Pomona vs Pine Rivers GF a few years back - took the young fella along for a bit of local frivolity. The extra man had been playing for a good few minutes before it was recognised. And the scores were not taken back to zero.
    Not sure people recognise that not ALL afl rules are followed in suburban comps to the letter.

    Well this rule is obviously followed here mate. And the umpires at this game knew the rule. Thats all that matters; I dont give a toss what variation of rules apply elsewhere in country. I reckon some of you blokes ought to come to grips with the fact that Caloundra f*cked up and there is a heavy price to pay for it.

    Clubs no doubt will acknowledge ANZAC Day this weekend

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
    We will remember them.

    Have a good game gents

    I highly doubt an AFLQ official informed a club official to storm the game and stop play. Imaginations are running a bit wild.

    just basing it on what was said in the above posts.

    I wasn't there, so can only rely on those who were.

    Great game at weyba rd today. Tigers 40pts up late into Q2 but a 10 goal 3rd put maroochy in front by a couple at 3/4 time and they held on in the last. Great pre match by Noosa to recognise Anzac Day and as always a good crowd to watch 2 pretty good sides go at it.
    Caloundra knocking Mayne off makes it an all Sunshine Coast affair in this comp to date.

    Hornets by a "bees" today. Back to back premiers without a win to date. Very even comp...not ideal with the number of teams but everyone should be happy with the competitiveness with all involved.

    I always said Mayne would fall off the other side quickly. Very reliant on a small band of gun players the last few years.

    Daly gone to O&M. Housego and Faulkner semi-retired, but not contributing. Heffernan-Roper has another single season at a club, wins a flag and then dissappears.

    Caleb Brown the only true gun player left thats not over the hill

    Well might as well book the holidays already...I think there is a long way to go yet in this season...6 team comp top 4 QFA North is a farce as has been discussed by all but it probably suits veteran "guns" just two months of good footy will jag a flag...17 of the premierishp 22 still on Mayne's list lets not go to early on the doom and gloom...

    Yeah agree Tigerhawk - and who knows what the time before June 30 will bring - occasionally a ral good player just rolls on in to a footy club too.

    yes, you are probably right.

    Given the nature of this comp and only having 6 teams.

    Mayne really only have to beat the 2 stragglers to get into 4th and can just roll out their side late in the year and win it on the back of Housego, Faulkner and Brown.

    No Daly or Heffernan-Roper will make it tougher though, some serious midfield grunt gone

    Interesting to see that Nambour dropped down to the local Sunshine Coast division I had thought they had just folded. But currently 0-4 coming down from what I would expect is a stronger division than the Sunny coast league I thought they'd dominate. Kind of worrying to see the standard they are at you can see why they struggled in this comp.

    Dominate with last years group (maybe), nowhere near it when at least 50% of that team leave. T

    The rules are stated very clearly in the afl and aflq. I'm not sure what more you want. The umpires handled it correctly and the aflq made the final decision. The only reason the game continued was because the Aspley coach talked with the caloundra coach and agreed to continue the game and let the hieracy figure the rest out later. At that stage the Aspley coach just wanted to win the game on it's merit.

    If this was to happen again then the same procedure would happen except the game would be stopped i would assume now everyone is aware of the rules.

    Seems like the competition is leveling out a little with just about every game being competitive. On the Aspley front, there are some very exciting young players that have come through the system that are combining with the others that have been in the system for a couple of years that have gotten stronger and matured as footballers. Got within 2 goals of maroochy at the weekend although some poor kicking probably costs Maroochy a bit.

    Yeah to a degree Dinga but credit to Aspley - they played the game out better than Maroochy and were very good. At nearly 8 goals up at 3/4 time it would have been expected that it could have ended in a 12-15 goal drubbing. But it didn't. You are right - the comp has eveneddd up a bit.

    Some interesting results over last couple of weeks. Looks like if you off your game just a little then you get beaten.

    A win at Noosa on the dung heap is always a good win for anyone

    Which is the silver lining to a 6 team comp. Just as good as having 8 teams that have 2 really uncompetitive sides. Think all 6 sides will be very much part of a revamped comp in 2017. No one looks like forfeiting games in this comp. Gee, Aspley have knocked over both Caloundra and Noosa in the past fortnight.
