Think Freon have a female coach as well.

Unfortunately with her job, that makes it a little difficult and I am pretty sure she is contracted to the Eagles for this season in the SANFL.
Agreed definitely feels like an edge. Very lucky to have her.

They do, the one who is considered the best coach, Michelle Cowan.
In answer to part a); Its very big and exciting and they have trained hard for months to get to this point.
part b); yes, they are passionate but if you rewatch the Crows mens side in the first few fames ever they were just as excited and passionate after a game. Give the girls 25 seasons I'm sure the body language after a win will be the same as the mens side. Right now, its all like one big grand final for the girls. Once the realisation of normality hits and the bigger picture they will tone it down. But for now I hope they keep doing what they are doing, its awesome to watch and they are the poster girls of the competition.
At 21 she would have been the best female footballer in the country by a factor of 10.
At 31, it will take some time for the rust to fall off but she is the true elite athlete in the entire field and she has kicked a ball since she could stand. She had to become a world class basketballer. She just is a footballer.

Why has it taken so long to get Bec's Presser from last night on-line ??
It seemed like the umpires were very quick to blow the whistle last night. I think this is an AFL directive to try open the game up and create more goals.
I think the passion of all the players is what is making this league so enjoyable for me.
Even late in the last quarter, when a team is well-beaten, they just keep cracking in. They are just loving the contest. Not like some of the men's games when a team will drop its bundle.
Yes i thought the 2nd game was more open, and the girls appeared to be more relaxed than the first, where they were obviously emotionally wound tight
Thought we saw with the Crows give more handballs to players on the move ......whereas in the first it was all about kicking only and the handballs were generally to stationary players, but i put that down to nerves and dealing with a higher level of pressure
Yes most losing sides in the AFLW have never given in .....and i agree, that it appears different to mens teams who conceded .......or the Aust Cricket side, who start organising golf tee times on the 3rd day of a Test Match
I know this will sound strange - but I hope the AFLW doesn't become too professional too quickly. A couple of years of this semi-professional community level comp would be fab. I know it will have to evolve and go professional eventually, but I hope we can really enjoy it as it is for some time.
Surely not for that long though? Can't see how it would be safe especially considering the sorts of body blows you see in contact sport.
That's what I was thinking. This is a high body contact sport. Any woman would be CRAZY to play when pregnant.
We still had like a 4:1 kick to handball ratio haha
Huh?! That's definitely a bus! That'll be fine to Melbourne but to Perth and Brisbane?
It's a bus to the airport
Did you miss the bus and then the airplane emoji? Our men's players are always on a bus travelling to the airport, which is exactly the same as happening here.
Round 2 1996 - D & A Jarman kicked 14 goals between the two of them
I mentioned in another thread about the Crows having on of the most boring club songs... but maybe it's just the way the men sing it
the girls killed it with their rendition
See the emoji - Bus and Plane
Jenny, you always jump on others for judging unfairly so I'm gonna do it here. Nikki was talking about a woman who had the ok from her Dr, you know, a medical professional. Who are you or we or anyone to judge that? She's done her due diligence and made a call.
Sure you don't have to agree with her, but calling her "crazy" in big shouty capitals isn't on IMO.
It's obvious they are, but the circumstances are slightly different. These girls are pioneers who'll all probably go down in the history books. Most AFL players are just footnotes at best at this stage.
Kellie Gibson and Sarah Perkins after the game. Guess who prefers the glacier freeze Gatorade, and the other the berry.
