So West Coast lose pick 14, next year's similar pick (15-18) & pick 24 for Kelly, one of the top 3 midfielders in the land.

Yeah two first round picks but very late ones.
This has made me more & more confident that we will trade Paps for pick 9 & swap picks 9 & 25 (2225 points) with GWS for picks 12 & 18 (2253 points) & the usual exchange of later picks as a side show.
We will then use picks 12 & 18 as part of a deal for Daniher.

I was at the 2017 AFL International Cup and the world champion Canadian women's football team was playing Fiji
and expected to win quite easily. Eleven minutes before full time the scores were locked tied and remained tied until full time
when the game moved into extra time. It took a further six minutes for Canada to score the winning point.
For 17 minutes the score was tied and the game see-sawed from end to the other.
I have never seen a crowd so exhausted from barracking. That truly was a game of football.

IMO close competition is more important than skill from a spectacle p.o.v.
Nice story. Thanks for your contribution. However this clearly says no oppo posters so please respect our board rules.

Have a nice day.

Just cleansed myself of all the Essendon talk on this board by watching the end of the 2017 on the siren win against them.
Favourite bits of commentary.

Five minutes to play...
Carey: "Well they (Essendon) know what this win means to them, they’ve been through so much. Three years of hell really."

One minute to the siren...
Bruce: "What a mark by Daniher"
BT: "Or was it Leo Barry?"

BT, you sly old fox, what did you know?

Sydney club comparisons

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Quick and dirty, but heres some Sydney club comparison stuff by request.

You wonder with the NRL clubs how much of their revenue is pokies money. Panthers, Dogs and Eels all have large licencesed clubs that fund the NRL teams and junior development. Given all three have barely played in finals in recent year the revenue numbers could reflect the pokies turnover.

Roosters have won back to back premierships buts its revenue is almost half of the Panthers and it has a smaller licensed club.

It’s a huge missing link for Swans in Sydney. These clubs generate huge income irrelevant of ladder position.

However, incomes driven by gambling earnings. There’s no moral high ground to be found there.

Thought I’d accidentally stumbled across the NRL Forum...
Just a discussion of earnings. Most of Swans money comes from membershi/ticketin/sponsorship, it’s interesting to look at comparisons.

But if you want we can talk about the rumours floating about on the Magpies salary cap being filled to the brim and offers flying in to Grundy and De Groey. Ed must be going spare cause AFL are apparently keeping a keen eye on their contracts atm

I’d rather that Tick because it was definitely going in the wrong direction (I like NRL but I’m not here for that).

I think though that it's foolish for certain advocates for AFLW to be starting to cry about narrowing the gender pay gap.

The pay for football is derived from the entertainment value. That male footballers get paid is simply a consequence of people wanting to watch them do what they have been doing, for its own sake, for over 100 years.

It really is very rich for the female players, having had the fame and fortune carpet laid out for them, ignoring the quality of the entertainment product they are producing, to be now demanding over and above what they have already. Male footballers are working harder, and playing harder, in far worse conditions than the AFLW players are for much less reward.
AFLW is as ******* boring as BATSHIT
