Would be curious to see just how trigger happy the mods are on the aflw threads.

In the interests of equality surely you’d have the same standards across all threads on bigfooty.

Mods arent a hive mind. If someone specifically registers an account as "awfl" and then posts only in AFLW threads in a troll like fashion, im pretty much assuming its a troll.

If he had created an account called Miss Ogyny and focused on underlining what a pathetic little male he was, we may have let that one go.

So a normal account pointing out just how poor and abismal the AFLW is would be okay?

So easy to throw out misogyny and ignore that the standard of womens afl is so bad as to be embarrassing at times when they went to be full time professionals.

In fact Australia vs Ireland women's AF would definitely be a competitive game.
That's what we were talking about - women's football.
I think we're all clear about what you're saying. It's just wrong.

You couldn't name an Irish 21 with all players vaguely lined up in their typical position, so why would anybody take your opinion on the matter seriously.

Quite enjoying the footy today.
We've got 18 clubs in the AFLW, no other team comp in Australia, men or women can manage it.
It's an enormous achievement, and I reckon it's fantastic.
Go watch the soccer if you don't like it.

To my knowledge there are at least 22 AFLW players from Ireland.
Today there are very few distinct positions in AFL and it hasn't stopped representative football.
If you formed an Australian AFLW side then they'd most probably be playing "out-of-position" as well.

If each AFLW team had two Irish girls playing week in week out, maybe, but even then, I would still expect the best of all the 18 teams to give them a bit of a touch up.

I would expect Irish national pride to make up a lot for the lack of depth.

Well done to Port.
It was always going to be a tough debut season, so to get an average of 6,739 for the whole season is a pretty good achievement.

The last mens game ever held at Arden St only got 4,000.
Once again, the 2 Sydney crowds were pretty good (sorry, just realised the Swans actually played at Geelong).

Just how big an achievement is open to discussion.

I found an article this afternoon that says it might be between 5000-7000 but Austadiums and other articles still have it at 10.

Even if it's slightly more than 5000 it seems odd that so many that bought tickets wouldn't show. I wonder if they just thought this morning "well we're not going to sell many more tickets anyway, so may as well just call it sold out and make it a good news story".
