Lol, lol, and lol some more. 7 of the marquee players for other 7 clubs clubs were from WA, along with 6 priority signings. If anyone 'grabbed all the best players', it was everyone outside of WA - examples include Emma Swanson and Renee Forth (GWS), Emma King (Collingwood), Sabrina Frederick (Brisbane), Chelsea Randall (Adelaide), so if anyone was grabbing all the best talent, it wasn't Freo.No but we’d long been preparing for the AFLW putting a lot of time into it, all we needed was the licence. Freo swooped in, snapped up the licence and all the good players that came with it.
My original comment was in response to how hard it would’ve been to build a list. As with the rest of the powerful teams in the women’s.. it’s not that hard to literally grab all the best ones when there’s 8 teams in the league. Going on like the list was built over 5 years in a very advanced setup. Compensating for the failed belief in the men’s “rebuilds” over all those years perhaps?
