    Average footballers can be good coaches . So maybe I should! Very average player I am! I'm stopping commenting on other clubs and I'm going to try comic relief instead!

    not ragging them out, just giving an opinion based on watching a fair bit of footy in most divisions.

    Longy and Tommo have just listed 10+ QAFL standard players running around for them, how many of those getting about in Div 3? not many...

    Comes down to guys with a bit of ability who can't play Saturday end up in this league, which makes it stronger than it nominally should be. If they could play on sat, then they'd still be playing the top stuff.

    Campbell, Stevens, Molan, Woods, Moore, McEvoy etc are all still QAFL standard players, and not just also rans - these are guys that have captained QAFL sides and won premierships, league medals etc. Throw in the older blokes like Hockley, Micca, Longy, Cash, Tommo, Enkera, Fuller, Cashy, Morrissey etc who can all still seriously play and would no doubt be very good senior players at any Div 2 or Div 3 club and the competition is really strong at the top end.

    Mornsingside also had 3 or 4 blokes running around who are former State U/18s players and academy players, hell they had Ben McNeice running around who was nearly drafted only 3 years ago!

    Don't get precious boys, just accept that due to circumstance - Div 4 at the top end is as good as, if not better than the bottom Saturday comp.

    Don't want to compare competitions, but I think we would be very competitive in the Masters comp.

    As would the boys from Zillmere :p

    There are two teams that are consistent at this level.
    Zillmere and woodsmen.
    Zillmere are lucky enough to have most of there blokes coming back each year.
    Put it down to Friday nite or Longy is doing a good job and they want to play under him.
    Take your pick but I reckon both carry weight.
    Would love to see Zillmere climb back up the levels.
    But it was pointed out a lot of work to do off the field.
    Getting ahead yourself when your not ready is a recipe for disaster.
    Give them time and I'm sure Saturday footy is in the future.
    Woodsmen have a few older quality players with a mix of new blokes every year.
    They play for the enjoyment but make no mistake they want to win.
    This shows everytime they take the field.
    You know you've been in a game after playing both sides.
    Premiships are not a given and when you are top of pack every week the opposition are hunting them down.
    This makes them stronger every week.
    A game hasn't been played so a lot of clubs could have changed their list.
    It only takes 4 or 5 quality players to change the team in this division.
    A lot of blokes love bagging clubs for trying to improve or having success.
    But not many of them have had to do it from the inside.
    Zillmere must be top of the pack.
    Well they are the current premier's.
    Good luck to both clubs and I will enjoy watching your progress again.

    I’m not up to date with who people are with their screen names on this wonderful forum. Maybe fill me in on who you are? I’ve been pretty quiet on the Facebook of late, getting old and less interested!

    We are playing Bribie is a trial in a few weeks, good on them for getting a team in, Friday night footy is the hottest item since AFLW! Maroochy on a Friday night will be a mission for us heading up the Bruce, lots of our blokes work til 5pm in the city, will be a tough one to get to for a 6:30pm meeting, should be good though, glad we have more than 6 teams in the comp.

    We play them on a Saturday.

    I thought all their homes games were Sat and all their away games were Fri?

    Why put a Friday night team in only to play Saturdays? Will stretch umpiring fraternity even more than it is already.

    So if Maroochydore home games are Saturdays what is the status of away games vs Jimboomba etc?

    Maroochydoore are happy to play Friday nights, but its logistically impossible for clubs to get up the Bruce Highway on time.

    they were left without a comp to play in, we were happy to support them entering Div 4

    It might be difficult for some clubs but it must be good having more teams in the comp ! Stand alone clubs compared to third grade teams should be able to play Saturday a bit easier ?

    Thanks Ormeau football club for your hospitality last night
    Great game and played in great spirit and the good crowd of spectators proved how good fri night footy is
    Great to see the relationship between cararra and Ormeau strengthening
    This is what community footy is about

    We had a run against Bribie Island last night, was a tough game, their side is made up of a heap of young fellas who all have a crack. Their midfield had 2-3 excellent players, one who would be my tip to win league medal. Game got a little spicy at times but overall played in good spirits.

    I don’t have too much idea of the level of many of the other teams in Div 5 but I’d think they would be a good chance at playing some finals footy.
