    Might be a women's only club by then.

    Geelong & Tasmanian Kangaroos in 2019
    Richmond, St. Kilda, West Coast & Gold Coast in 2020.

    I imagine Gold Coast will take a decent portion of our players, so Lions got to make the most of next 2 years!

    I suspect that once people have to pay to get in, attendances will drop off considerably...

    Gold Coast have actual Facilities. Wonder if this dilutes our bid to the QLD government to support the women's game in anyway, they've already got a women's team on the Coast for PR if they want that now.

    Two teams in Qld, one team in WA and SA??? Coupled with the inevitable poaching (and extra money) from Victorian clubs spells disaster.

    Pretty sure I remember Breanna Brock mention that they felt within 3 to 4 years they were on track to be able to have list made up of 100% Qlders. Whether that is a necessity as a result of this announcement. Only time will tell. But with GC coming in that will stretch it pretty thin.

    "We don't like how this Queensland team almost won a premiership. How did we fix that last time?"

    Two teams in WA. West Coast and Freo. But just one in SA.

    If the Crows go on to have another big year in 2018 I wonder if the AFL will think about fast tracking the Power's entry, assuming they're interested. If Adelaide are the only club with no competition in their backyard you'd think they'd have a real advantage over every other team in the league.

    Can't remember back to the applications for the inaugural year but Port (and Sydney) definitely didn't apply this time around

    Gotta start making it a professional competition to attract enough talent to fill all these teams.

    Saw a short clip of the national footy carnival in the 1930s and it seemed a similar level to women's footy now.

    The Irish GAA just had its a women's final. Tickets not free. They got 48000. Unless Aussies like footy less than Irish like GAA, it will be fine

    WA will have 2, and Port haven't applied, so SA cannot have 2.

    Why would you screenshot a retweet from someone but crop out who retweeted (and commented)?

    SCG cannot hold a woman's team yet so AFL advised them not to apply this time round.

    Port said they are focussed on making China work, so did not apply.
