AFLW is still AFL. The’ll put Magda Szubanski up as the face of the game before they’d put a non-Victorian up.

Erin Phillips.
Strong football family.
Instrumental in winning two premierships for her club in the fledgling league.
Best player award twice (IIRC) by a country mile.
International representative in Basketball.
Professional basketball career in the US.
Has a young child and in a same sex marriage.
Veteran of the league.
Physically fit, skilful, determined, with incredible leadership qualities.
attractive, intelligent, and media savvy.

I mean, seriously, that’s some impressive political gymnastics to NOT have Erin as the face of the league.

But nah... Taylah did a kick once that flashed her wan.

The AFLW Vic-centric ignorance is an extension of the AFL Vic-centric ignorance. The non-Vic clubs haven't helped themselves nor each other either.

Magda Szubanski, aka Sharon Strzelecki, would have to give netball a miss to play AFLW.

Lol. 1 goal 7. Must have been localised torrential rain and gale at the Parade. Aren't the Crowetes meant to be one of the better teams?
I pretty much agree with you on the standard of AFLW. I think it's pretty poor.

So do you know what I do about it? I don't watch it, I don't read about it, I don't constantly post about it. Maybe you could try that sometime.

I'm tagged in this thread and I just help myself. I don't watch it or read about, but it's still gets an undeserved run on all the news networks so it's unavoidable.

I hate it because it is just so undeserved, because it has the corrupt shitbag organisation that is the AFL pushing it down our necks and the complicit media playing along, It is beyond sh*t teir.

Yep top side.

The Dees/Norf game makes it tricky to see who exactly the contenders and pretenders are. Before this weekend I would have thought Docks (who haven't lost in their last 10 games now)/Norf/Cows, but now it's getting harder to ignore Melbourne and Collingwood.

Brisbane sit undefeated too but haven't played anyone of note yet.

Why stress? As every season once the men's is up and running it'll be lucky to make page 14 of the sports section of any paper (or the front page of any website). The only annoyance is Port doesn't have the paid for advertising/funds for upgrades/etc. of a women's team, that benefits the club as a whole, that almost every other club does.

Crows have won two flags and have the league's best player by some margin.

I'm not able to mash the lol react over one bad game, especially when we don't even have a team.

Any football broadcast to a 'professional' level is like any port in a storm. AFLW is that port and summer is the storm. Being better than nothing doesn't mean good. I'd rather have a sh*t beer than no beer. West End still wets the tongue after all.

Sure I could watch the NEAFL on NITV but I'd get a better quality breaking the old VHS tapes of Broken Hill grand finals from the 90s.

It seems so simple doesn't it.

The AFL does a lot of really horrendous corrupt and self serving sh*t, but supporting women's sport is not that at all. Do these people not have daughters or neices who they can now dream about winning a flag for Port one day? Complaining about the standard of a fledgling league where most players probably didn't grow up playing footy extensively is dumb. It'll get better because girls will watch this and then go and join their local club.

Until we get a team, I don't have much interest, but i'll be very interested when Port are playing.

Na, I had no idea there was a game in Adelaide yesterday but there’s something therapeutic about reading about a crows thumping over my morning coffee.
