lol like we wont see this a dozen times during the season, I get it they are not as skilled as the men but some of the comments are just stupid.

No we will not see someone running into goal with zero pressure miss someone standing alone a dozen times

Once maybe and that’s a maybe

Huntington and Lochland named on the ground to play on Sunday, Toogood and Moody dropped. Blackburn still in, so must have recovered well :) Bartlett and Brown named on the extended bench.

She was out of the team, but Belinda Smith is also out for the season with a ruptured Achilles.

We won't be winning it this year but I hope we ruin the seasons of everyone we play from hereon out.

Surely there’s no way that Blackburn plays. Her leg was convulsing and she had no idea where she was.
No concussion symptoms apparently. You can get concussion without being knocked out, and knocked out without getting concussion.

That is true, but just because a player doesn’t show signs of concussion when tested doesn’t mean that there a brain trauma hasn’t occurred.
Blackburn looked severely affected by the knock.

It felt like the Bulldog tackles went unrewarded, while Freo’s were always rewarded, did it seem inconsistent to anyone else?
Yes.

I switched the TV off after the play-on call when the Fremantle forward was tackled trying to kick a goal and failed to make any contact with the ball.
