    Will we get the number 1 or 2 draft pick since we’re going to be one of the new teams / expansion clubs?

    Melbourne and Carlton have in perpetuity top 2 picks in recognition of their incredible contributions to women's sport.

    Melbourne because the MCC now allows women to accompany men - and Carlton because Richard Pratt had long term relationships with not 1 but 2 women concurrently.

    Is there any chance of having this particular topic shifted to a different thread? I’m not saying it’s not an important issue, just that I come on BigFooty to discuss North Melbourne with likeminded people, and not to read several pages of people’s impassioned tirades about hot button political issues.

    If not then I might just avoid this thread until next year when our women’s team joins the league.

    I would counter that the AFLW is a political issue. In fact, it wouldn't exist if not for politics.

    However, I agree that two separate threads may be a better way of managing this matter.
