Can’t be true, surely.

If by some obscenity it turns out to be true, can just imagine how sooky sooky Mo will handle any criticism of the decision.

I disagree, Erin Phillips would be a very worthy nomination. She has achieved an extraordinary amount in the game in 3 years.

BTW John Coleman played for just over 5 years, didn't stop him from been made a Legend.
Pretty dumb comparison

Coleman won 5 VFL goalkicking awards, played in 2 premierships and then coached 2 premierships. He was inducted nearly 30 years after finishing with the 2nd greatest goal kicking ratio ever.

Yet he got in over Coventry, Wade, Lockett & Dunstall who were all ahead of him on every other metric.

Premierships played in counts for stuff all, by that logic Grant Birchall is twice the player Wayne Carey is because, you know, 4 > 2, but since you went there, Phillips has played in two premierships herself and played a major part in both.

Goal kicking ratio counts for stuff all too, Allen Jakovich reached 100 goals before any other player in the history of the game , should he get in Melbourne's Hall of fame over Garry Lyon because he got to 100 goals quicker?

My point wasn't to compare them, but to show that even with their short times in the game that they left a huge legacy.

Heard a rumour that the AFL are keen to elevate Mo Hope to 'legend' status which is the precursor to a future Hall of Fame nomination.
WHY ?

She's done nothing!

Delisted.

There's so many better options around. Erin Philips, Dana Hooker, even Tayla Harris are all much better options
Abbey Holmes deserves it more ;)

She didn't even know how to play football. She is only "known" because the AFL are stupid and decided for her to be the poster boy for the AFLW not because she could play but because she had skunk hair and scribbled some **** on her arms.
Mick Malthouse made her look like a fool :D

Or, you know, maybe Collingwood signed her as a marquee player on the back of her being one of the greatest ever goal kickers in the VWFL ?

She's despised by every VWFL/AFLW player more than Aker and Damien Barrett put together and has done nothing for football

This thread is basically just deliberately bullying someone. There's obviously zero substance to this rumour at all, and the whole point is just to give people an opportunity to tee off on a decent human being.

Go do something decent with your life OP.
I havnt seen anyone teeing of on a decent human being in this thread. People are only teeing off on Mo Hope

She was the leading goalkicker in the VFLW for 5 seasons.

A few bad seasons in the AFLW when she's 30/31 and everyone here thinks she's garbage.

Need to look at her whole career, she's done very well.
