If there's been no risk of coronavirus infection so far and there has been none deemed for the men, what makes it different for the women? The only thing I can think of is they still work day jobs?
No risk is not the reason why they are starting the Men’s season.
There is a very real risk that someone will contract the virus at some stage which is why it is now only a 17 game season.

Is it? The AFLW is already playing with no crowd, there's less games to complete to finish the series out legitimately - and less games per round anyway, and if they're cutting games while the men's season starts this weekend then they already intended to run two leagues at the same time anyway.

Money to charter flights, book hotel floors, etc.

And yeah day jobs

yup, just waiting for official announcement

If they were to play a similar finals series to the men, I reckon we will more than likely play Collingwood again.
Up here, maybe at Hickey Park again?
Or would they play it at a the Gabba?

Imagine if we played at the GABBA without people! The girls would be so frustrated after our Gabba GF was sabotaged by Mitchell.

Don’t want to see it happen, but will be interesting* to see what happens if an AFLW player in a finals team tests positive.

*Interesting isn’t exactly the word I want, but can’t think of the appropriate word.

Cost of playing at Gabba would rule that out.
Just hope the girls can improve on last weeks effort
One thing we should have learned this year is anything is possible
