    Kind words Morro, getting a bit soft in your old age mate.

    I am sure we will have a spare Pirate jumper ready for you mate should you get itchy feet during the year.

    Odd game in the two's with your good mate NP might be enjoyable.

    Morro is officially retired (again) . For now.

    :)

    I'm sure when the clearances start going through there will be plenty of chat happening.

    Round 6 2012, 10 goal loss in the twos and a 20 goal loss in the ones. Can't blame you for choosing to forget that though

    Couldn't blame KP if he did leave the Buffs. They are a rabble. Predicting them to have another long season this year. Should have joined the Suns when they had the chance.

    Why would you have wanted them to join the Suns if they are a rabble?

    unfortunately not, but if I had to guess - AFLQ will do the opposite of what appears to be logical for most... :)

    Will be sad state of affairs if that is the case. Is it because the juniors are not totally aligned with seniors? I thought Tommy would have sorted that out, so is it that or finances?

    Until we hit mid February I am not real sure how our competition will shape up. Bit concerns around a few clubs numbers for 2 sides and finances from what I hear.

    Can't afford to lose any more clubs to Friday night competition over wise it will be overflowing with teams?

    Both Buffs and Cararra have good junior bases to work from so I would be staggered if they can't get 2 teams over the line. I would be more concerned about sides that just recruit for one or two years and when money runs out turns to crap?

    Long time retired Morro, remember that mate. From what I saw last year I am sure you could still get around and sneak the odd sausage mate.

    I thought I told you not to pump morro up . We need to talk.

    A couple of their senior players would have been handy running around in the two's...

    Exactly, so no wonder they decided to remain a stand alone club, besides, you got the better deal by merging with surfers

    Agree.

    AFLQ are taking the piss not offering a Saturday competition for one club teams. Fielding two teams is a big drain on resources, finances, volunteers and of course actual playing numbers.

    Given AFLQ are so quick to grant licenses to new clubs without consideration for flow on effects for the existing clubs nearby, they should offer a solution for the diluted player base that doesn't involve changing their model completely to Friday night footy.

    I said at beginning of last year that more clubs would look at a one team structure. It's getting harder and harder to find 60 players. Not to mention volunteers and umpires to fill all the roles the aflq don't do.
    The cost drops off with one team.
    Saturday afternoon football for one team clubs is a must but I'm sure they won't see that.
    I learnt last year that trying to understanding some decisions made by aflq will drive you insane.
    You have obviously stayed of the crack pipe over the holidays.

    So it seems to me that to many people think they know everything about all the clubs .
    The Buffs wont be playing Friday nights and they certainly are not short of funds .They havent paid any one for 2 years so you would think they are cashed up .The Sports club is killing the area and have been more than helpful to the Buffs .The ground has just had 300k of new lights doesnt seem to be a lost cause .The juniors are going well and strong in all youth areas which is more than i can say for most clubs in this league .All youth teams played finals and did very well .
    The buffs Seniors and Juniors have and always be one club and one constitution .
    I am sure you all enjoy having a chat on here but get it right
    The buffs are far from broke and will have 2 sides seniors and reserves

    Thanks for the chat
    PS here is something to think about i know for a fact that KIWI is back helping the club so lets see what transpires with that should be interesting to see .
