Our girls can’t kick or take a mark but hey they can run all day.

The sad part is that they can't even do that. Melb ran all over them in the last - we were the ones who were spent!

I'd love to see the amount of time Duffy spent on the ground compared to some of the Freo players who had worse games than her. And then compare their fitness levels. There's no substitute for a footballer in the game of football - we've got 3 or 4 max imo.

If we were any good this year we’d be one of those 6 top teams.
That's true but we lost more players than came in.

Here is a list of players either lost, not playing or injured:
Ebony A
Kara A
Houghton
Duffy
Cain
Morrison
Sharp
Stewart
MacLachlan

In the WA draft the eagles had the top 3 picks plus the 4 mature age players.

If we had Ebony A we would most likely beaten the Dogs and Blues which would have given us a 3-3 record.

The AFL excluding us from a draft in completion essentially is nuts. Can’t believe the Eagles had such access, mature players and the best young talent. Not that it would have mattered today.

If Scanlon signed with the dirty birds making the 5th mature age player it would have been worse.

We need to go fully Collingwood from here on out. Play on, play on, play on and play on some more. Swarm the ball and the opposition, lots of hard running, tackling and ferocious attack on the contest.

Say it all day and every day ending with a y, skills is a furphy. It's decision making that's the issue. We have a lot of inexperience and that tells over 4 quarters. But simplify the range of decisions they have to make and weighting the decisions driving the gameplan towards direct and fast attack will help inexperienced players get it ingrained faster.

At this stage, I wish they got her

Hasn't exactly lit up and doesn't have as much scope for improvement
This is an insane take for a first year player. Generally fits in the category of perceptions and expectations being totally out of whack for AFLW players.

She's 21, but a newcomer.

Fingers crossed she improves then but she has been arguably the worst of our pickups so far

Maybe Mulholland behind her

Mulholland comfortably worse in my mind. Who seriously drafts a 29 year old? Trent taking the piss with that selection.

They should tank this year. Get the best kid in WA, steal some players from the top teams and reset for 2023.
