Agreed, what we need is a team of robots who show no form of personality or emotion.
Personality is fantastic.
That was not personality.
It reminds me a little of Francesco Totti's thumb sucking at the 2006 Soccer World Cup.

Shooshing the doubters who have doubted us since the leagues inception is hadly controversial and if anything gives the doubters a big 'fu** you'.

In the end, I'm glad the girls expressed themselves against a group always counting them out.

After a Grand Final, hell yeah, a big '#### you'.
After round 1, not for me.

I like it. It’s for them, not us.

Sounds like the media spun it to Phillips as though it was a pointed statement to the Crows when it was anything but.

Brisbane has the best win/loss record of any team in the AFLW, yet was still picked as, or talked up as premiership favourites by almost no one.
It was a pretty good response I thought.
I took it as, keep talking everyone else up, we will go quietly under the radar and win it all.

I actually quite like it. I think the less professional AFLW can handle a bit more outspokenness from the players, and I think they have a pretty strong case.

But it's probably worth the club keeping an eye on how far it spreads. We don't want to come across as whingers.

I might need to be educated on Totti's thumb sucking though. Didn't that have something to do with his son being born?

As far as I understand it, IF she wanted to go, any Victorian club would have to trade for her at least.

The only club we can lose players to without compensation is the Gold Coast.
Daja bloody vu. Lions will again be set back by the Gold Coast. Imagine if we are reigning premiers when GC raid our talent - once again we will have to import more out of state players and face the go home years again.

Do Victorian clubs get to raid other teams for free as well or is it just a hit the non vic club policy?

Players will be rated by Champion Data and certain points will be allocated to them. Existing AFLW clubs have to give up "100 points worth" of players to the new expansion Victorian clubs.

I imagine we will have to do the same with the Suns. I'm basically resigned to the fact that we will lose Zanchetta to them, plus some others.

They will still be a couple of years away so maybe she will be entrenched in the side by then and won't want to go anywhere.
Just dreaming?

I suspect they will ask who is willing to go. The issue is, if Zanchetta stays, it just men's someone else of equal value has to go.

You are doing way better than me - I'm still at the annoyed/pre pissed off stage. Lot of big footy posting before I will find peace or resignation with it.

Gonna be stinking hot on Sunday. Now I haven't been out to Strathpine so I can't account for wind chill and such but forecasts for my area say it's gonna be 36 with 50% humidity.
So just stay hydrated if you're going to the game, it's not going to be comfortable
