There are plenty of Port Adelaide badged Women's teams in other more suited and far more skilled sports with far more storied histories out there for you to support and for your nieces and daughters to aspire to. I totally disagree with this comment..... "The AFL does a lot of really horrendous corrupt and self serving sh*t, but supporting women's sport is not that at all.".... the AFWL is the most self serving sh*t possible. They waltz on in with all their money, steal players from other sports, get massively disproportionate media coverage, for what is a completely sh*t tier product, gain massive Govt grants (for what is the richest sport in Aust by miles) whilst other female sports that have done the hard yards for decades get the scraps. It is a complete farce.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.
