Great to be here, alive and well to talk about football on this football forum. And this thread is about the BEST kind of football: Round 1 AFLW action, omg.
Channel 7 are covering the Friday night and Saturday night games, along with North Melb. v St Kilda and Brisbane v Richmond on Sunday arvo. As usual, viewers outside of Victoria will have a couple of those games subbed out from free-to-air TV in exchange for their local teams.
Sydney v GWS is probably the most intriguing match-up of Round 1 for mine (would've said "definitely" if not for the early-season absence of Montana Ham). Carlton v Gold Coast and Hawthorn v Essendon are also really crucial matches for the teams involved. I'm going to try to wait until the lineups come out on Thursday week before finalising my tips.
Some stuff from today's season launch:
AFLW players will share in almost double the prizemoney after the AFL confirmed it would offer equal amounts for the men's and women's competitions
