dam im disapointed, she really fitted in and love being part of the club. My daughter loves here may turn her back on footy now my last hope lol. oh well onwards and fowards interesting with all the clubs in what the shake up will be
Mo is terribly over rated on field imo but certainly worth keeping just for the PR stuff if you ask me. Kids look up to her for some reason and she could have been a huge asset.
She stood at the side of the field and put up with my daughter singing My Little Pony songs to her for longer than anyone else and laughed, enjoyed it and encouraged her the whole time. She's worth it to the club for that attitude alone if we're trying to build support among kids.

That's awesome. Does make it seem a bit stranger when we had put so much promotional and branding responsibility on her shoulders.

Edit: Tweet was deleted, possibly due to a typo.

Kearny basically said "I said that it was difficult choosing to move to North, It wasn't, It was the easiest thing in the world to decide to do. North Melbournes commitment to womens football going back years makes it an incredible place to be. North Melbourne is like a second family"

I don't think anyone was surprised that Bruton outpolled Duffin in the back half of the season, especially as Jess struggled a bit under the weight of a heavy tag from the Adelaide game onward. What I didn't see coming was that Jenna had it in the bag more or less after the first 3 rounds.

What was it, four or five AAs in the team this year, and it's the one that doesn't make it that wins the BnF. Goes to show how valuable her role was this season.

A worthy winner is Jenna.
Had a chat with Jenna pre count and she is lovely but didn’t think she was a show. I told her to prepare a speech.

It looks that way. Will be interesting to hear her side of the story.

From the outside it's hard to understand what a player in their twilight years in a 7 week season semi-pro sport based on 1-year contracts would've expected in terms of 'player welfare' that hasn't been provided.

Will wait and see. She seems unlikely to go unheard.
She’s got a decent profile off field. Seems like a bit of a moth.

Considering he output for Collingwood, this year has been mutually beneficial. She’s retained he profile and North/Tassie have used hers.
