The ones who are vocal deserve extra danger money. I made the mistake of checking replies to a Chloe Molloy tweet the other day - so many Neanderthal opinions. I don’t get it. There are many sports I think are kind of silly but I don’t chase players all over social media to tell them so - each to their own.

This probably isn't the place to say I live and die by the underwater hockey results every week.

Yes I saw that thread. Chloe is brilliant in the way she disarms these idiots by engaging with them non-confrontationally. It's the last thing they expect. And the last thing that they deserve.

I quite like the way the north site just cite players going to an 'expansion club'.
Crows did the same when they announced Erin Phillips was leaving. Felt extremely pointed in that case, but it looks like a bit of a general agreement that it’s up to the new clubs to manage their own announcements.

I thought that one was kinda funny as everyone knew she would go to Port but they just couldn’t bring themselves to say their name.

There's a little bit of head office in this though - the clubs were told they couldn't make any contract announcements until the season was set and the CBA in place and the whole draft and trade period underway. Basically, they were saying that no contracts are legal right now so you can't announce anything. Saying that a player is leaving seems to have been okay but they were frowning upon clubs saying that they'd signed any new players because technically, no-one had signed anything.

You've taken the fun out of it.
