Word has it Glasshouse also trying to get a team up for Div 4. What's the lights situation at their ground?
That would be a great result if they can - magnificent venue. Just not sure if hinterland and GH both try to then there is 60 blokes sitting around wishing to play that level of footy on a Friday night. Take in the fact that maroochy already have a Div 3, Northshore a div 4 then we are looking at a stack of games on a Friday night for a smallish region. Would make more sense for GH to align selves with Caloundra and look for anyone not getting a game in their Saturday teams, same as Nth Shore with Maroochy 3rds / 2's. Even Hinterland. Great opportunity for clubs to work together rather than against.

might be time for a Div 5, or a Div 4 north and South

Certainly AFLQ will be looking at a north south option. I am not sure how other clubs feel especially those that have to travel quite a distance but at this level the competition should be promotions and relegations, Div 3-4-5 and keep the games competitive. The question really is would your team rather travel 100+km for a close hard fought game or be closer to home and expect a big win/loss. I think a competitive competition is more appealing to players but like I said I don’t belong to a club that has to travel week in week out.

Yeah something will need to be worked out if there ends up 3 sunny coast teams + bribie in the same div. Unless it becomes a half-Saturday league

My understanding for next season is that there is or at least was potential for 18 teams.

pac pines, Mt G, Coorparoo, Beenleigh,Ipswich cats, Alex Hills, Redland/Vicpoint, Rattlers, Coomera, UQ, Ferny, nth Shore, bribie, Hinterland, GH, Kedron, Aspley, Marcellin.

it seemed as though the general consensus was a north/south comp with 16 rounds, finals, then a Nth v Sth GF. This is assuming clubs get accepted and there isn’t more that requested licences.

Actually split at the river too! I think that would be a really good outcome if it worked out.

Assume Collingwood Park have to/want to go up?

Wonder if any of the Brisbane teams would crack up at potentially 3 away games at sunny coast on a Friday night?

I think the idea was to split at the river. It looked like a Brisbane based team would have to travel 4 times which while not ideal, isn’t really that bad.

I’m not sure about Collingwood Park, I would also assume they would be going up.

would make more sense to combine Div 3 and Div 4 and break them into 3 regions.

Yes, division 3 is far stronger at the top end, but these things would even out over time.

if there are 18 teams in div 4 and 10 in div 3, just Div 3 North, Div 3 Central and Div 3 South would make much more sense and minimise fighting traffic on Friday nights on the M1 or Bruce

28 teams across 3 regions.

Great idea - teams fond their own level and if we think that any comp in Australia is "even" then we are kidding ourselves. Fri night footy I would have thought is generally about logistics, not whether team A would get trounced by Team B

I think there's a job at HQ for someone with common sence.
