Welcome to another season of old farts footy.
Might as well get the ball rolling. Only 90 days till the comp starts!
You blokes better start training now cause it will take you 90 days to warm up for your first comp game ;D
Will CHU scare off the comp? Will man of flaming hands make a return? Will the fatman have gained another 20 kgs? Will it be another 6 team comp or Division 2 get thrown in to make it a 16 team comp?
For answers to these questions and many more stay tuned as all marriages are put on hold for 8 months, The eski's washed out and coin jars are raided to pay for pies, dencorub and a new set of homey peds with cleats
Of course we respect your opinion no matter how stupid it is!
does that mean top 4 from Div 2 get promoted and the same 6 teams as last year play??? I can imagine the protest letters being drafted already....
If it's 10 teams we, as in CHU White will be happy to play 1s again...If it's 6 teams again then Div 2 looks good since we get relegated??? 6 teams last year was a joke and will be more so this year if Granville go against the new policy....
Looking forward to some new opposition next year in whatever division!!
Cream At this stage Toonie will not have a team of Div 1 quality. We lost 3 of our best players from last season and in saying that we were the 1st team eliminated in the semi's.
We would like to play in Div 1 and have a few players that are fringe Div 1 or there abouts and on top of that only have around 12 players at this stage. If anyone knows of 5-6 quality 1st Div players please contact me so we could reconsider our nomination.
Hopefuilly you can find the numbers. Haven't got any good players to pass on.....only Stanley and Notworthy. You will have to put up with the egos but at least they have something going for them - they are both definitely over 35.
As I said, hopefully you can find the numbers.
Stan and The Captain will never achieve Oko status.

Ademon, don't worry, I think the level of "Division 1 quality" should change somewhat this year by having 10 teams. You'll be fine...you could swap the bottom 4 teams of Div 1 (of 2 years ago at least when there were 8 teams) and top 4 Div 2 without seeing much change...
First training hit up last week was fun...and painful...hope the rain holds off long enough to get another run this week.
K/Kolts now have a 2nd side in Div 1 this season. We are seriously struggling for numbers as quite a few havent returned. We need at least 5-6 players who are keen to give it a full tilt. To be honest, we are probably not going to compete for any honours but should prove fairly competitive throughout the season. Generally good bunch of blokes who get along both on & off the field. If you are keen to join a bunch of blokes who still enjoy this game and partake rather vigorously in the esky activities after the game please drop me a line on this forum. Cheers, yours in beer !!!

Was speaking to a lad from baulko today. Apparently their team from div 1 last year is struggling for numbers with only 7 or 8 returning... The 2s lost a load to 45s so what was left joined forces with the 1s. Will be interesting to see where they end up since baulko were a decent div 2 team. Sounds like quite a few teams are in the same boat this year!
We have lost 4 or 5 to 45s but have a few new faces so will be interesting to see how that pans out...very quiet on the Dundas and Greystanes front so far...aj where are you and how are you guys shaping up?
we'll be around with what is looking like basically the same squad. the rain has killed off all our hopes for preseason hill climbs and beach runs, but we've had a couple of kick arounds between showers and getting chased off the field by council representatives. rumours abound about a couple of our players having brown paper bags containing large amounts of cash waved in their faces in an attempt to lure them to the always-promised-but-never-yet-materialised chu O45s squad. but they seem to have been able to resist the temptation.
