    Too much self glorification at club and League level.
    Folk more interested in their life membership and and awards than the betterment of football in the region.
    Add in a series of dud AFL Q managers and you have the recipe for the current disaster .

    The interesting thing will be how will the Magpies players that have been there the last few seasons, especially their Juniors, feel about Downesy recruiting multi players from other teams, pretty sure he would've promised all the recruits a game in the ones!

    They don't have much option after your club took half their senior team.

    Do they have any senior players left?
    Not ideal but better then them folding or getting belted by 40 goals each week like a few years ago.

    Bakers are going to smash the 2s this year. But there wasn’t much they could do when they lost 4-5 of their top notch players from last year to Magpies. I’m looking forward to seeing how the year progresses. Think there is a few teams with a great chance of taking the comp out. Magpies recruiting has clearly gone well (with the stand out being Downsey, a great coach) but they recruited some stars last year that didn’t perform so only time will tell. I don’t really think people should care if they pay players or not, it doesn’t change anything. I hope it’s a closer year than Whitsundays dominance last year. I don’t know who the sleepers will be this year probably the saints who narrowly missed out on the GF last year.

    So wasn't there a rule that if you had enough players to fill a team that they had to play in the highest grade playing ( eg A Grade ) ?

    Was at our home ground on Saturday playing host to the hawks for there intra club practice match...
    They had a few swift movers for pre season and a few returning faces in decent looking shape. Notably Stow, Waldron, Berts, Liam wade, heath brown(back at his home ground)& patty curtain.
    A couple of has beens but they looked fit and keen

    I’m thinking Whitsunday will take it out, hope the magpies recruits crash and burn like they did last year.

    Eagles by 2 goals over north Mackay in the gf! Magpies player payments for the second consecutive year fails. Over all looking like a even competition across the 5 team seniors comp

    As a whole the carnival was a great day, good to see how the teams are looking, Whitsunday will be hard to beat this year, North Mackay had some good recruits. Swannies held their own, Magpies looked good but should have been better, Bakers did well under the circumstances and Hawks played hard tough footy. Gonna be a great season ahead!

    Most teams looked to have picked up a couple of handy recruits, which club do we think had the best preseason recruiting drive.

    Hard to say, guess we will figure it out when the real season starts.

    Wait until round 1 in a couple of weeks! Most teams had players missing..
    Great to see Nathan Peters yelling abuse at his own team mates during the game... Some things never change..
