    You must play reserves in the qafl Gazza? Noosa and Maroochydore would easily account for any qafl reserves team, and to say its a blight on your club if older guys running around is an arrogant out of touch comment. You do what you have to do to put sides on the park each week and if some 'older' guys are prepared to help out then bloody good on them. This isnt an elite high quality comp we are talking about here, only equivalent imo to a good vic country comp at best. You have obviously never had a coaching or support role within a club to understand the challenges faced from week to week!

    Not a chance.

    Every Div 1 senior side other than maybe Yeronga would beat every single QAFL Reserves side out there.

    My son played juniors on Sunday at Mt Gravatt. I couldn’t get over the awful state of the field and the facilities for a QAFL team. Is this a fair comment or not?

    Was there with PBC on Saturday and a number of players commented on how hard the ground was.(most grounds in qld are hard!) and that there is no where to warm up for players.

    Would be one of the poorer grounds in terms of qafl clubs compared to the others

    Do we expect too much? Warm up areas, hardness of the ground? MtGravatt was resurfaced in last 18 months at a cost of over $100k. In general grounds and facilities have improved dramatically in passed decade. Maybe we are getting too precious

    That quote I disagree with ... yes the top 4 sides in div 1 would most likely beat the top 2 AFLQ reserve grade sides,, but thats about it ,,,, is a huge step up in levels and most people dont realise this.

    Most Div 1 Senior teams would easily account for QAFL Reserves teams. I don't think thats really in dispute is it?

    Disagree - the top 3 or 4 reserves teams would easily defeat anyone under 3rd place in div 1

    Maroochydore, Noosa and Coloundara should join forces and create a qafl super team and enter the competition next season.

    The thing that everyone is too precious about is the competition named qafl.i wish it could be changed to the allied Pickford cup or the ikea cup so as it is not referred to as Queensland’s best football comp and god forbidden compared or talked about in the same vein as the sanfl,qafl or vfl.the Neafl comp has Queensland’s best 5 sides in it and until
    They come back and align themselves with the other strongest sides in Brisbane and the goldy facility and playing standards should b accepted for what they are In this non dominant Afl state

    I don't think it is genuinely in dispute and not sure of the relevance in discussion anyway. Most of the dominant two's players at QAFL level would be solid at div 1 but definitely not game changers.

    More importantly this weeks games - massive opportunity in Surfers v Morningside - big leg up for the winner.
    Cats v Maggies an interesting one as well.

    What's "Standard"?? Think you need to get out more and have a look around at facilities in some Vic metro and country towns. Much better facilities in the main in Qld.

    They got flogged nearly every game. I think Southport who were winning every by 30 goals that year. Put 300 on them

    Siders put 300 on them in 1990, I remember it like it was yesterday!

    We kicked nearly 300 in 88 against Kedron, but fell short despite having 65+ scoring shots. Southport has never cracked 300.

    Our Reserves are 6th, but its fairly even this year and we beat 2nd and 4th.

    All due respect to our 2s, but they wouldn't beat any of the top 8 Div 1 Senior sides. Maybe Burleigh and would probably beat the Devils (sorry Longy!)
