Meanwhile Basil Zempilas makes dick jokes about an exposed Adelaide player in the changerooms live on-air, and there are no consequences. Gil McLachlan blames male players when their nude photos are leaked and it all blows over. At least in the AFLW it's just internet trolls.

“Just internet trolls”.

meanwhile the comments were unprintable.

“the worst cannot be repeated they are so objectionable,” Herald Sun head of sport Matt Kitchin said.

Whilst it's fair enough regarding the obscene comments, and maybe the ones that are straight-out sh*t canning it, one of the losers out of all this is AFLW.

Now it lives inside some kind of bubble (at the HS at least) - exempt from reasoned criticism and casual observations. Improvement and feedback only comes from within the AFL's self-invested think tanks.

It's a shame that the idiots who posted the garbage forced this to happen. I'd love AFLW to improve but if the only people whose opinions are listened to are those with paid commitments to promote it, then I'm not sure it will ever connect to its audience.

Not actually Richmond
Small minded (and likely smelled dicked) bigots ruining it for the rest of us. Nothing wrong with level headed and reasonable critique of the women's game, but them comments are often vitriolic.

I would love to hear about the actual players in the Hun rather than more whinge pieces from Hope.

What kind of comments were made?
The Tayla Harris photo last year for example, there were comments about seeing her genitalia and what they would like to do etc etc

You may expect it from a group of teenage boys but these were guys in their 20s and 30's making comments.
