    Halfway through this is how I see the ladder finishing.

    1. Maroochydore
    2. Noosa
    3. Cooparoo
    4. Caloundra
    5. Springwood
    6. UQ
    7. Aspley
    8. Mayne
    9. Burleigh
    10. Yeronga

    Top 4 for me are guaranteed with 5-8 to battle for the last spot. Thoughts?

    Woods is the fulltime footy manager on about 70k a year and i think youd be very surprised if you knew what the likes of Norman,dzufer and Ryan were on. Mdore payment system is excellent with contracted players and then decent incentives for those good enough. Noosa would be head and shoulders above all others. In 2015 when they recruited Moloney there spend would have been close to if not over 100k. The thing is they can continually sustain it, are, as well run a club going around and continually put out strong sides. Its no secret however the location is the major drawcard above all else!

    Sorry but in regards to what you all believe Noosa to spend your well off, not even close to well under

    I dont have a problem with what Noosa spend or any teams for that matter. If you can afford to without jeopardizing the future sustainability of the club or overburdening volunteers then go for it as the competition allows it. Does it work, sometimes yes, sometimes no but thats the decision of individual clubs to decide.

    As mentioned heaps of times before,good people make good footy clubs and at Noosa we have been very lucky to have hard working good people willing not only to invest their time but often money too.the footy club and the result of our seniors each week over winter means a fair bit too them and the past players contingent has always been a great strongpoint of the Noosa footy club.to see names like Trompf,laskey,Wallace,boardman,Fitzpatrick,maher,Odwyer,Mcdonald and pettigrove all in the senior group and all Noosa juniors is what’s so pleasing to our supporters in what is usually such a floating footballing population

    Missing about 10-12 since the Springwood game, could be more competitive as others return. Unfortunately the competition has advanced since last year and when you go backwards from the year before, its always going to be a battle.

    Kicked a goal with 30sec left on clock to put us up by 6pts. Roos do a great set play at cb, kick into fwd half with a shonky kick, lands in jack gales hands. Kicks the goal And siren sounds as it goes thru. Was a good goal under the circumstances.
    3 goals down at the last break, really happy with how blokes responded from last couple of hit outs, was always more about their effort than end result and although 4 pts would have been greAt, 2 was better than none, especially as we had 8 changes from springwood gAme.
    Aside from your mob, think its a pretty even comp. mayne will bebetter in the 2nd half of season as will a couple of others imo.

    A great day for local footy mind you, footy club put on an area for maroochy and caloundra old boys to mingle and drink and there would have been 500 people around i reckon. Ripping day a d pleasingly a stack of young sc fellas on both sides playing it out.

    That’s great to hear mate and a really good initiative to invite and have past players at a local derby.just so important for the 3 big clubs if u like to attract a local following both on and off the field.and yes noosa playing a pretty good brand of footy but will be surely tested by away games to mdore and cooparoo in 2 and 3 weeks time.still think there’s a couple to come back in that will strengthen us some more.couple of really promising kids in colts Johnston and pettigrove have been constantly putting hand up and should get a chance I reckon.still a long way to go and most teams seem so much better at home.i agree with u on mayne being big improvers back half of year and I think teams like springwood,Burleigh and even uni can cause an upset at homereckon final five will stay as is but not in order

    Think injuries will count for most clubs outside of Noosa and Maroochy and of course who those injured players are!

    Really looking forward to the Noosa v maroochy game this weekend in a season that just seems to have really flattened out compared to last year.just across the entire competition games have been no where near as even with 3 of every 5 game each week being floggings in one way or another.whilst the interest among the tiger faithful is high due to our ladder position most reflect on a pretty uninteresting first half and a bit of 2018 should b a big following heading down to fishermans rd in the hope of watching a good hard close game of footy featuring the standout two clubs of the competition

    Its funny mate, a few people have now mentioned to me that the competition is better than last year.. Certainly think it is more even from 3-9 anyway. Noosa an outlier in my mind at this point in time - maybe why the faithful up that way are getting bored... :)

    I'm a big fan of the QFA Division 1. This isn't from my UQ hat on, this is from the hat as a goal umpire. Some of the most enjoyable games I've had over the previous 2 seasons have been QFA Division 1 (None in the senior grade this year. Not umpiring any senior footy.). There is certainly a lot of passion from the crowd, the players, the clubs overall but largely the games have almost always been competitive and incredible to be part of.

    For record, I used to umpire QAFL and NEAFL as a goaly. I love every game I'm involved with my maggot shirt on, but the competitiveness of local community level footy is incredible.

    The tiger faithfull not bored anymore smy I couldn’t get to maroochy game yesterday but from all reports Roos far too good my sources told me the score line flattered Noosa and it was more like a 6 goal win.can look like down hill skiers at times the tigers but falter when serious pressure is on.i reckon we have several blokes that are passed their used by dates and apparently it was evident yesterday however no need for panic not a bad time of year to get a reality check and plenty of good colts playing well and putting hand up.have no idea why reed Gordon played in twos he is a walk up start imo to seniors great win by Caloundra mate I thought that may have been a danger game especially with no Rudolph how’d buntain go certainly not setting this comp on fire like I would have thought two years ago rated top 25 players in the state rarely named in best for cooparoo

    Yeah I was surprised mate at Noosa losing and like you said, right time of year to have it happen. Reid in the 2s is very surprising but saying this no idea if he trains well, attitude good. Can’t pick a guy on birth certificate. Gee your colts had a good win too.
    Real soliD win by us yesterday, played very well, could have won by a fair bit more if kicked straight (but didnt). Interesting few weeks for coorparoo now, with Springwood away, then the 2 ladder leaders.

    It was a good confidence boost for the Roos but the loss wont hurt Noosa. I agree about a couple of older blokes that battled to keep up from Noosa. Trompf started in ruck with Simmo running amok until Trompf was pulled and McDonald put where he plays best. A good tussle between those two young ruckmen. I expect the starting lineup for both teams to be different by finals time. Big surprise to see Burleigh smash Springwood. Whats happened there, Springwood were going alright?

    Couple of interesting ins this weekend with Noosa coach Sammy Faure expected back after a 3 month lay off due to hip surgery and I’m hearing maroochy best and fairest Jackson Ryan also back this weekend after a long lay off from knee surgery.two pretty important players for both clubs
