Just having a quick glance at the rules and regs, and this stands out to me.

Any person with some real size about them is pretty much ruled out from playing by this rule. Sensible. Some of the players are quite small, so a behemoth that was born a man playing against these smaller women would be really risky.

Thank god I don't watch AFLW. In fact, they should put AFLW on a separate website imho. I don't want to see this Non-Binary thingy as something that should be glorified in our sport, I mean why should this sport be a playground for the social/political sciences. I think Putin was right about using some common sense about rejecting some of this social science stuff that's coming from US/Canada. Some of the woke people on here might be offended with my views, but tbh, its last time I talk about it. The main thing is they should remove a lot of this political stuff from the sport. Sam Newman warned about this a while back.
If Vescio has female-only genitals, XY chromosomes, then she shouldn't cry/stress over Non-Binary, that's my view. Last word on it! Promise!

I think we should also back Putin's ideas against the 6-6-6 rule

Are there some people with XY chromosomes attempting to play in the AFLW?

Serious question, BF and afl.com.au provide my only footy related information, as I'm in the States.
Sorry, I made a typo. I meant she probably has XX chromosomes.

Was good to watch a game of football and have knowledgeable commentators rather than dumbfu**s going "BOY OH BOY WOWEEEEE".
Or deadshit boundary riders.

Its also good to see the Saints womens team want to continue to add spoons to the trophy cabinet.

Probably be a while since I've seen the Women go at it but it looks a level above last time I saw it.

They go in hard alright. Almost go in harder than some past footballers but it's their lack of penetration in kicking and overall power which is hard to get use to.
On call back radio, somone rang up and mentioned they could look at making the field shorter. I think there's something in that as it would also see a lot more goals scored in the process.

Yeah maybe, but I remember the same kicking penetration thing being mentioned a while ago and at the time that couldn't kick over a jam tin. Now it seems longer, more direct. I think just give it more time. Reward the progress they've shown

And yeah, they certainly crack in. Can't fault their endeavour

Yeah totally. If you look at the scoring of the first years of the VFL, it's comparable. Players and teams will develop with time.

Kicking penetration is better, these were meant to be two of the poorer teams and Brennan and the Hosking sisters have big kicks on them. First goal was scored from 50m as well for the Saints.

That said, they get a handful of games per season and are semi-professional. Can't expect too much when the AFL doesn't give them the environment to thrive.

I'll reply with a quote from 2019 and the added comment that the Tigers are continuing with a proven method.

The tackling has been gr8, so glad to have Rocky back in the team. Purcell is a 'bit special' & a couple of other 'kids' in Van De Heuvel & Clarke have put in.

Congrats to Sophie Van De Heuvel on her 1st goal.

The Hosking girls only know 1 way to play & that's hard. Could almost qualify as 'hitmen' but that isn't restricted to them.

The Hoskings girls looked bigger in AFLw than they do when they play Netball though. Unless they have put on some size recently. Guess I will find out if the local leagues go ahead.

Where are you going with the comment they look bigger than when they played nettie? Not much regarding your post makes sense to me.

Size has nothing to do with it, they (Hosking sisters) have always played hard.

Doesn't matter which eye you look out of, this AFLW game featuring Melb and Dogs is awful.

Im saying I saw them playing nettie the other year, and they looked bigger physically against St K. I am therefore suggesting they have put on muscle in the last couple of seasons.

So from the feedback or lack thereof I'm guessing there isn't an alternative to the AFLW thread.
