Carnt confirm that.Heard that in the game that Gympie were beaten by 200 points this year, best on ground was awarded to a Gympie player. Poor form if that was the case. Unsure how you can lose a game by 33 goals and still warrant a vote is beyond me. Anyone confirm?
I was more saying that people probably think Park Ridge won due to their topliners, when from what I saw they won because they had a bit more depth and a more consistent 25-30 players.Im talking purely top end here. I dont disagree that most Div 4 sides would easily compete in Div 3 - I'm just saying the bottom end of Div 2 is very close in standard to Div 3 - Ive watched plenty of footy in D1, 2 and 3. Hell some of the Woodsmen and Zillmere sides that have been trotted out in the past would play Div 2 finals.
Yeah I agree Fan - the div 1 draw will be 16 rounds I predict (like this year) so you will play 2 sides 3x. I would suggest the ones closest to you.Park Ridge, Maroochy 3rds, Jimboomba and Magpie 3rds you would think would be top end of Div 3. Park Ridge despite dropping a couple of games, a fairly comfortable Premier in the end mainly through depth than top end talent from what I saw.
I'd say they would have likely beaten evveryone in Div 3 as well other than probably Moreton, as would the other 3 mentioned would have been competitive with Ipswich and Wynnum. On that basis, Park Ridge would have to be assessed as a previous year finalist when doing the draw.
However, I suspect AFLQ may base the 2nd round part of the draw on travel rather than predicted or past strength of sides.
Didn't take long mate.Still going through the hoops to get back into Saturday Footy Bucky. But hopefully will be announced in next week or so.
Definitely looking at Northside as when you do the Sums it's about 400klms eachway less travel than Southside in a season.
Any way to find the round by round results?
Has anyone seen the signings/player retentions hinterland has been making? Might be a smokey to go deep in September next year. Birchmore did a great job in his first year.
He did do a great job and has got Danny O’Brien on board for next year who was terrific at Noosa in his coaching roles.Has a very aggressive recruiting strategy which is great for Nambour.As a Sunshine Coast footy person I hope they go well!
Moreton should be back.
I feel their ressies have a point to prove after seeing the seniors hold the cup. Gonna be intersting
I hear the ressies coach from last year at Ipswich has landed the Moorooka gig.Ipswich have their first major signing with head cheerleader Kym Mansell re-signing. They’re in for a huge year if this signing has anything to go by
Should have reported the dickheadCarnt confirm that.
But what I can say is I umpired a ressies game this year and when we did the votes I had a clean sweep to the winning side.
Might add it was a flogging.
I was told by the other umpire that their club told him that no clean sweeps can be awarded.
I disagreed and said your kidding the best 10 players were on the winning side.
Given that it was an away game for me I didn't do the paperwork required.
That means every week a player is taking votes off a more deserving player.
Votes in my view are for the best players not given to blokes because the club wants no clean sweeps.
If this is a thing that clubs do in reserve grade I would think that the medal is out of whack.
To be honest I had several issues this year with other umpires about votes.
Just don't think it's a good system and has too many holes in it.
It's not a participation medal.
It goes to the best players on the day regardless of who your club is.
Tahj Abberley is in the Lions Academy. He went to Sandgate this year to play QAFL. Apparently the Lions wanted to play him in the NEAFL GF, but couldn't as he'd finished the season in Aspley's side (including their two finals).I've heard Aspley have grabbed a couple of youngsters from Moreton, once again making the Lions academy look silly with some of the talent they aren't aware of.
Yes he is and we can’t wait to meet him and the 9 players I believe that are coming with him, my sources tell me that he was the main man at the Eagles pulling all the strings behind the scenes over the last few years and left because he was sick of Mansell taking all the credit. Moorooka top 2 with mansell falling big time all the way to the bottom he has totally wrecked that club.I hear the ressies coach from last year at Ipswich has landed the Moorooka gig.
Might drag a few with him from what I am hearing. That will upset young Kymbo!
Might put you over the cap a bit . Ya crack head !Yes he is and we can’t wait to meet him and the 9 players I believe that are coming with him, my sources tell me that he was the main man at the Eagles pulling all the strings behind the scenes over the last few years and left because he was sick of Mansell taking all the credit.
