    The Coach of the year is the Premiership coach.
    You don’t give medals to the team that finished 3rd do you

    It doesn't really matter whether he's paid or not - that would be his choice because Broady have clearly spent money this year. Not sure its a great model to have a volunteer coach. Good thing with Broady though is the stability under their coach. From all reports he has progressed as a coach and they have been steady in their progress and having a real crack this year.
    Coach of the year - premiership coach? I think that is an archaic view on who is the best performing coach. Winning being the only measure of how good a job a coach has done is ridiculous - especially in a competition like the QAFL.
    And to say that a team wins because they were outcoached in the box is equally ridiculous - much smaller game day than we think. It is also a slap in the face of the players. Coaches most important work is Monday to Friday or at least an even split with game day.

    They came to noosa and gave us a touch up in the qualifying final and we had a pretty good side. Mind u surfers did the same the following week...☹️

    From my understanding BA has put a few good assistants around him this year which is smart thinking. Makes him capable of narrowing his focus a little bit and no doubt coach better. Coaching in eRly 2000s would be different to coaching now, especially as a non playing coach. Im sure he has adapted! GC footy pretty strong atm, kids being drafted, the 3 of the 4 qafl clubs going well with labrador just having an off year, the neafl side going well, burleigh is competitive and their ladder position isnt a true indicator in my mind. Probably should be mond you with the number of ex southeners and population but all the same, good to see.

    So, My Broady defeat The Vultures by 15 points in one tight struggle .
    Morningside inflict Palmys first defeat of the season without 3 of there guns be it Kinch, Logan and Weare.
    So the Panthers have now knocked off the top 3 sides in the past 4 weeks.
    I mentioned on here some 5 weeks ago , that the Panthers are surging and looking dangerous.lol..

    Would've liked to see the young hawks get the points today. Ryan Thompson plays for his junior club and they win in my opinion. Jordan Harding turning into a genuine A grade midfielder. Well done young man.

    From what I've seen, Mt Gravatt and Surfers to make way for Morningside and the Magpies come finals time.

    Surfers will make the finals , which would make a lot of teams nervous, as they could repeat what the Western Bulldogs achieved in 2016.

    Haha - let's hope so.
    2 weeks ago thought 8 wins would be enough - now it looks like 9 wins will be required.
    Magpies need 4 wins out of 6 games
    Surfers will need 2 wins
    Mt G need probably 3 wins due to their percentage
    Morningside need 3 wins and they should beat Grange, Lab and Hawks at least.

    Based on the ladder they should all achieve that. Mt Gravatt cannot afford anymore injuries and need to get a few back.
    Some good upsets over the last few weeks has made it interesting. Seems like some sides match up better against certain oppositions.

    Yes it’s got very interesting. I reckon only PBC are locked in for minor premier and cats should make top 3 given % and games against bottom sides still to come.

    But the matches between maggies siders demons and vultures will be very interesting to follow as throw a blanket over them all and one will be top 3 and 1 will miss out completely and the other 2 will go hammer and thongs in the elimination final. % could be telling.

    And Lab will pop up and upset someone at some stage too.

    With such a even competition within this group , a lot will depend on injuries, players being elevated to NEAFL level, players coming back fronm NEAFL level and acadamey players coming in after there season comittments
