    Well ,, at the moment we know they have lost some, but gained some good players from Southport ,,,, must say they will be the ones to beat ..

    Palm Beach and Broadbeach i believe will be the teams to beat, Palmy have lost [ well Heron and Dawson got Drafted ] Graham will be with the academy and play NEAFL when available, and McDonald has gone to southport. Those boys where all very important players on Grand Final day, and people will tell you Jack Crowley is the coach and brains behind what happened at the lions this year, and I've heard he is not around this year [ this might hurt the lions]. In my eyes Crowley and Croad are the good players they have picked up. Broadbeach have picked up a few good players but really have lost no one to my knowledge. Labrador have lost a few and have not picked anyone up so I'm expecting them to drop from the top 2 for the first time in 5 years. Wilston Grange would be everyones smokey i would think, and no disrespect to the tigers but it will be good to see two other QAFL teams competing for the 2018 cup, a very even season coming up. Broadbeach v Palm Beach in the Grand final ,how good would that be both hate each other even more over the Derrick incident this year , i will drive to Brisbane to watch that.

    Nutting getting drafted to the suns would hurt the cats kicked 5 in the preliminary final against labardor.

    Grange no chance, will be competitive for first 5 rounds and then predictably drop away. It will be all Gold Coast, Magpies maybe with a young list and Ryan Hardwood. My preditions at end of premiership rounds in order

    According to labradors Facebook they ain't done with recruiting just yet.
    Already got one from Ballarat. Couple more to come.

    The same person also said the new football manager has rubbed a few boys up the wrong way already, seems he's out on the track yelling out and giving directions during drills. He might just need to stick to the job he was employed to do....Football Manager and leave the coaching to the coaches..

    Broadbeach v Palm Beach GF. A local gold coast rivalry with the potential to have a huge crowd (3k+) if hosted on the gold coast instead it will be in Brisbane and have 500 people. Well done AFLQ.

    Always thought Crowley was made a scapegoat at Southport after the 2010 season

    Come on Gazzaa the season hasn't started yet, should we cancel the season now as you have booked in the 2 team playing off on grand final day. Lets at least wait until round 15 before we blow up about where the grand final is.

    Unless the GF is at Broadbeach Gazzaa will likely blow a fuse.
    I’d say there is a good chance of some ladder movement in the QAFL this year which is a good thing. Don’t be surprised if WG, Morningside, MtG or the WM are playing deep into finals. Just because the coast clubs are spruiking lots of recruits means nothing.
    There’s nothing like getting ahead of yourself in January hey Gazzaa??

    As a long term Cats supporter , I’m definitely not counting any chickens...

    We have lost a few and gained a few, and no longer can fly under the radar like we did a bit last year. Hopefully the players handle the expectation of being one of the early favourites, but agree there’s no guarantees.

    And agree there’s 7 clubs that can realistically play past the first week of finals, it would be boring if the result was known

    Must agree 2010 Premier ... it all comes down to the actual results come game day ...
    I see The Grange have lost 2 guns in Trewalla and Brittan ,, but they were at the end of the careers anyway ,, the Aspley players they have recruited will more then cover these 2 retirements ,, and they have good depth with their reserve grade side and its results in 2017 ... I feel they will be a very good side this season

    Any word on how the mighty Hawks are traveling? New coach is highly regarded in development circles.

    You’ll find that the senior coach asked him to introduce a few drills into training. Nothing to worry about except your nose growing Pinocchio .

    Interesting to see some praccy games vs neafl sides. And games scheduled that require trips up and down the M1 during comm games?

    Seems odd. Id have thought during comm games you would try and get teams of close proximity to play

    Without knowing what he meant I would suggest he's saying you are just throwing darts everywhere and hoping one sticks.

    I'm sure every club is queuing up to get your football knowledge, since you have a opinion for every club
