Good read by Kate O'Halloron.


In the background, the AFL has been busy making a number of changes to its underage competitions to facilitate the growth of future stars of the women's game.
In Victoria, this includes providing girls with greater access to full-time staff who work across both girls' and boys' programs.

But according to one Fox Footy article this week, not all clubs or players are happy with the changes.

This includes one AFL list manager, who is quoted, without being named, as saying that the AFL has "ripped the heart out of the pathway system".

The article alleges that nine clubs are unhappy about the changes, stating that "most felt boys programs have been disproportionately disadvantaged by the growth of female competition".

It's a bizarre sentiment given girls and women have been marginalised and excluded from the game for centuries.

Wonder if its being streamed.
Yep!

Crowds will be permitted at all matches in Round One unless otherwise advised but limited crowd capacity will be enforced at all venues. Matches will be streamed through the VFLW digital channels.

This will be good:

VFLW and VFL double-headers will be a feature during the season and will be released following confirmation of the VFL fixture. These double-headers will be dependent on Government protocols.

Yep!

This sounds good from the article...

Hopefully even an occasional triple header with the AFL playing later.

Aliesha surely has to be selected then? Bit awkward if she doesn't get to play, being the only indigineous girl on our list.

Need to done something in the Practice Game as done nothing in her 1st 2 Games except get Suspended.

We don't have any other Aboriginal Person to go up for this Interview
