    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

    There is too precious and then there is just shit facilities- Mt Gravatt oval, coaches boxes and changerooms are not standard- not the only club

    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!)

    Gazza,,,, correct ,,, this was a one off 2 years ago where we were decimated in all grades with injuries ,,, is the only time its occured ,,,, our depth today in all grades is strong as indicated in our positions on the ladder in all grades. So these comments from fellow posters are so off the mark ... I have seen quite a few division one games over the past 2 seasons and only the top 3 sides may defeat most AFLQ Reserves sides ... there is a big gap in standards from Div one to AFLQ ...

    Looks like Sam was in and out of their seniors. Bit like when he played at palmy, but he definitely had a good year at the vultures and knows where they are.

    Interesting round ahead I’m tipping Morningside to get over a gallant Demons,

    the cats to get it done just v Maggies.

    Palmy too strong for Sandgate despite helping Suns neafl with Woolley and

    Vultures to pummel Wilson Grange who seem to have an injury crisis every year like the GC Suns ( how many times in a row do you get unlucky before you question what is happening?)

    An excellent round that will shape the 5

    Few more than that stuyd my mate played and he was nearly 55!
    Not a criticism, just a comment to this guy Gazza who overrates qafl 2s and shows a lack of respect for clubs who (like u 2 years ago) are doing it a bit tough numbers wise.
    Qafl sides are no different to most other clubs around Aust, will have good and bad years personnel wise. Broadbeach did 2 years ago and would have played with 16 blokes in a 2s game if not for a few old blokes putting hand up, at the ground mind u, not selected prior.
