Haha reckon you will come across him as one of those guys who you know by a nickname. He’s definitely training there. He told me so himself...
spent 2 years playing with a guy at maroochy in the late 90s, churchie, and didn’t know his real name until 18mths later. Thought his last name was church. Stupid me...
I actually dont know many of the players. Know the coaches well enough. Also coach one of the junior teams. So, who are we actually talking about?

Yeah must have the name wrong Bernie will know when we play them as mentioned earlier the port boys knew of him and spoke pretty highly of him bud 63 might b able to fill us in some more
I haven't been to training yet this year NB, maybe this Thurs. I'll look out for some old Crows socks running around. Funny time of year with players; lots of gunna's out there who were stars in their native land. Just ask them.

Good to hear mate. I know UQ have picked up Quick from Broadbeach, few good uns fallen into Roos, Burleigh have picked up a few from country vic apparently, caloundra a couple of good ones too but lost a few thru retirement/travel but confident a decent group will come together. Be very young though.

how much does the average div 1 qfa player get paid per game ? and whats the standard of footy like ?
An average player doesn’t get paid.the best player in the competition would get between 300-400 bucks a game and there would be a fair few blokes running around getting around 200-250 bucks a game some clubs have good cash awards and also pay say 50 bucks per win to contend the top two clubs of the past 5 years would be spending around 50k.the standard is similar to Murray league in Victoria however the three sunny coast teams and Mayne from a few years back could definitely compete in higher standard country leagues

How are panthers going for colts numbers smy? We are really struggling at Noosa with only 3 top age under 16s coming up and two of them played colts last year also.its a pretty difficult age and our priority is always of course to have them we just don’t seem to be able to hold on to them for more than 4 or 5 years.had them in 2014 only to forfeit heaps of games and pay several fines,didn’t have them in 2015 and have had colts last three years with 2017 also a massive struggle.plenty of top age 16s coming through next year and tbh the 7 or 8 really committed colts we have this year will relish playing both reserves/seniors

Colts numbers good as we have forged a relationship with Kawana but struggling with seniors! Any spare blokes send down please mate.. :)
I thought as much smy with u guys and Kawana very smart and should have some quality there as Kawana juniors very strong.no overflow of senior numbers here either mate we have a good quality list of around 30/35 consistently getting to training

Have heard Park Ridge has had to drop out of Div 1 and go all the way back to Div 4. Seems like a huge slide. Unable to field 2 teams apparently. What will that mean for Div 1. Will Yeronga come back up? or the runners up from div 2? or a 9 team comp with a Bye?. Few decisions to be made only 4 weeks or so out from round 1.

Geez, if they hold onto half their list - they've just killed Division 4 completely. Surely they're meant to go to Div 5 though?

AFLQ being a bit stubborn here by the sounds. Inconvenience about 15 clubs to effectively punish 1 club.

Weak reserves Div 2, promoted to Div 1 where Reserves level much stronger. Imagine 3 x annual drives to the Sunny coast to get hammered probably saw a few blokes opt to change clubs instead, such is the nature of club loyalty in the lower reaches of QFA footy.
