I severely doubt any women would be capable of playing at AFL level with the physicality and pace of the game. It wouldn't matter how good their skills are - I have no doubt there would be some women that would be great kicks of the ball.Yes but we aren't feminist gender studies professors. We don't understand why it doesn't make sense because we are ignorant fools, or something . If some women can play better than the men in the afl I say let them in! You want the best players in the top league.
Gender's are split in most sports for good reason - because of the physical advantages men have which we all acknowledge. There will never be a day where you see men tackling women in AFL footy. It won't happen. I can't even imagine the uproar if a player like Mumford went after a woman in a match - we'd be hearing about it for years.
On the flip side the interesting thing for me is the gender separation in sports/games where there is little evidence that physical attributes would be an advantage eg Shooting, Ten-pin Bowling, Chess (has a weird separation that's not worth going into on here) and Video Games. Even something like table tennis could probably have joint leagues.
