I can only assume the AFL umpires have gone back to just doing the blokes games because the umpiring standards this week have been abominable. Some genuinely perplexing calls.
FWIW I thought the NM-Richmond game was well umpired. More willing to call frees in contests to keep the ball moving, favoured the girls playing the ball. Probably missed a couple here and there but the vibe of the thing was fine.

anyway back too the footy

from what I watched, no lack of effort from the WC girls
2nd half was better - but we were very sloppy in the first. Simple skills not executed at all.

We’ll get there, but we’re right at the bottom of the pecking order for sure

It was hard to tell how close SLT was in terms of applying pressure, but either way it was a brain fade by McMahon. Third match this weekend ended by an apparent lack of scoreboard/time/match awareness, or whatever you wanna call it. Even if she didn't get pinged, making no effort to keep the ball in play is what cost Geelong the chance to win.

Probably not the best way to have a decent conversation with someone whose team is flying and a genuine chance I would’ve thought?
Gutter trolls aren't interested in "decent conversation", Biggie. It's a real shame that AFLW threads are now being infected with his unhinged vitriol.

On topic and I still can't believe Collingwood's monumental improvment, they really did dominate for lengthy periods yesterday against a much more fancied side and probably should have won. Good little wakeup call for Freo after two reasonably easy games to start off with. Can't afford to take the Saints lightly next week that's for sure.

No it didn't. Putting it through for a point was the right thing to do, except she should have made it less obvious that was her intent. Then she could have played on, kicked it down the guts and hoped for the best. If she had kept it in, the Geelong players ahead of her were off their feet and too far way from her and Adelaide would have scored anyway. They would have lost either way, so called it a brain fade is off the pace.
Hold on, do you realise the margin was 5 points before she took it over the line?

Tell you what, they liked very impressive didn’t they? BUT your mob got the 4 points and that is a telling point in itself.

Red hot chance to go all the way

Crows two wins probably down to sheer experience against newer teams - No Phillips the easy thing to point to but I think Randall is the bigger out -
Carlton and North next two rounds will tell us alot

Goal of the Year

The best goals of the round were clutch set shots like Greiser's nomination, or Howarth's non-nomination...

But this in a one-on-one with the reigning AA fullback has gotta get a mention too:

Mark of the Year

Harris took a bigger pack mark on the wing that I would've had in over Bella's.

Match Review
Shierlaw (StK), Bates (Bris), Eva (GWS) and Cox (Adel) offered reprimands. Rough conduct for the latter three, general rambunctiousness for the former.

Not to mention another 14 tackles for KB.

Nah everyone knows defenders don't win these types of awards. It was fair enough that the Pies dominated the coaches votes - Freo's performance was a pretty even one - the 'stars' were way too inconsistent whereas the Pies' stars stood out. Not sure I would have picked Brazill or Layton though.

I really wish AFL and AFLW commentators would move beyond rating a performance purely on a player's number of disposals though.

Fair but I don't think you can justify listing 4 or 5 of your best 5 from the game as being from the losing side.
With the defender balance I agree but then Bowers shouldve been up there.
