Not a massive AFLW fan (maybe go to one game a year at Whitten oval as local)
But I feel an opportunity missed not to bring back FITZROY in the AFLW.

Fitzroy compete in the VAFA, and it's not likely the club could afford to compete for a licence and then afford the staff, players, etc required to run a club.

It's a nice idea for the romantics among us, but not going to happen.

This is the Fitzroy youth club.

While he's allowed to have a beer with them, Jack Irish isn't old enough to join the youth club, he's just allowed to visit coz his dad was a bloody good footy player.

The Fitzroy youth club if it provided an AFLW team, would have Beryl, Mavis, Edna and others. Some of them are on a second hip replacement and might not appreciate being tackled to the ground anymore (though the pool cleaner at the retirement home is pretty cute)...

There have been whispers the past couple of years that they would push for a VFLW team. But fizzling out of the VAFA A grade to be in the B Grade may have put paid to that for a while.

Never say never though.
