NT Thunder to join SANFL, apparently a preliminary forecast has been done n sent to QAFL clubs by the league?
I think it suggested Southport, Aspley & Redlands to join newly constructed VFL which would be the old VFA when VFL had reserves
Ablett, I did hear that earlier in the year and got howled down when I suggested QLD NEAFL Teams may go back into VFAon the QAFL chat room.

Be interesting to see which way it pans out mate

Harder round to tip this week with a few cracking games
Beenleigh over Coomera by less than a goal
Pirates over Coolly
Roos just against Victoria Point
Bond easy against Kenmore
Morten just over Alex Hills

Well done to Coomera today, they took opportunities and got us with strong running in the last quarter.
Must admit we are pretty disappointed at the support we have had from visiting sides having a beer at the end of the game. The Buffs make sure they stick around at each club when we are away but that yet is reciprocated.

Good job by the half wit that punched a hole in our away box.

Plenty of coomera blokes hung around and put money over the bar but it’s unfortunate for you guys who have your can bar in the worst spot on the ground, though at least you moved it outside the cricket nets so it doesn’t feel like your sinking tins in a prison.
Hard to beat a nice deck with a great view of the game(and scoreboard) and $4 schooies.
Double edged sword for you blokes with the sports club being a sponsor.
Senior game was a cracker but Buffs inaccuracy in front of goal probably cost them in the end.
Glad to see the goal posts have been fixed

Sounded like a good game of footy Old Buff. We have found most teams are supportive of hanging around for a beer at each club. Robina were definitely the best thus far with Beenleigh and Moreton having good numbers. I think Coomera had 2 or 3 players come over which I suppose is still some form of representation.

We have made a club rule that we all go in for at least a beer, I know it's hard with some clubs having functions to get to or players with other commitments. But it is sometimes the difference of having a good day or bad day with the alcohol sales.

Strong support for AFL Reserves comp to be reinstated from both AFL and VFL clubs. This would obviously impact current NEAFL format.
Heard yesterday that AFL still want NEAFL competition and the licenses signed this year were 5 years and AFL will insist they stay in tact.

Appears Lions and Suns also keen to stay in that competition. Only Melbourne Clubs looking to extend their lists to get the old VFL ressies competition up and going.

Pretty reliable sources so not sure what that means for QAFL.

Interesting concept.

So if the VFL Ressies gets up, given there are 8 interstate teams that don't have true ressies, it will be a weird and wonderful structure in Vic!

Agree can't see how it can work without the old VFA Teams like Port Melbourne, Williamstown, Werribee etc.

Be interesting to see how it pans out mate.

Whys that mate? 10 teams will have 2's - that's a pretty good comp imo. The non aligned AFL teams will drift back into a premier comp imo that will be like the old VFA but not the same clubs. Think there will be the best clubs from metro Vic in there and be incredibly strong you would think and a fantastic club based competition as well.

more that I thought they were pushing for AFL wide reserves comp, played as curtain raisers etc.

Not possible with 10 teams obviously, and scheduling would be hard - especially when the 1s are interstate etc.

Your maybe right, be a good game
Bond just a bit to good in the end but our boys lost no admirers. Can't give good sides 40 points start at half time and expect to reel them in.

Inaccurate kicking again was difference in the end. I'm sure will be equally good game on the return bout.

No mate we just didn't finish off in the manner we should have. Think we kicked 3.9 in third quarter and most of those misses were set shots.

No excuses mate. Good to see you boys get on the board today mate.
Nah. I just thought the scoreline suggested one end had a majority of the play.

I umpire and got smashed last week by a player.
One of those things that happen.
No red card just a you all good from both of us.
Must have been pretty deliberate to card him.

He gave away a free and then he showed the umpire what he did and touched him and then the ump pulled out the red

What's the deal with red cards these days? Once upon a time it was an automatic 2 weeks, then not so long ago 1 week with an early acceptance. Is that still the case or has it changed again?

I might be wrong according to the letter of law here.
But I believe umpries need to harden up and understand that players get excited and emotional sometimes.
Sometimes when a player gives me a bit of a spray you have two choices.
Penalise him or politely let him know that's once.
I suppose that's a point of view from an old bloke who's played a bit of footy and reads the game as well as umpires it.
