It was well supported by the playing group and vindicated on the weekend with an 11-goal round one thumping of Kingsley.
Maddington started well, kicking seven goals to zero in the first quarter, with a dominant ruck display from returning player Mark Dunn giving first use to the midfield.
Second quarter started like the first but Kingsley fought back well, kicking five majors for the quarter.
The Bulls still went into the half-time break with a handy four-goal lead.
The second half was all Maddington, keeping Kingsley to one goal for the half and eventually one goal in three quarters of footy.
The Bulls said they were happy with the start of the season, but there was still a long way to go.
Better players were Jack Byrne, Nick Kot, King Chenzo (four goals), Gab Denton, Jason Brennan.
