Great idea! If they ring you back about the membership bundle, you can tell them I'm in.

I'm tempted to get the Women's Football Foundation Membership, but it'd be a $115 donation. There's not much on the list of member's benefits that I don't already get. And it'd take a few pay days with nothing unexpected for me to afford it. It only takes the junior footballers in my house to grow out of their freaking boots (again)...
$79 if you are already a member but yep gets harder and harder to find the cash for everything.

For anybody thinking the highlight reel on the club website was maybe a little bit lean, here's a few extra clips to whet the appetite:
Brennan is a star. One of the most skillful if not the most. Only knock is she would probably have to find a yard of pace to get more midfield time. The girls are getting quicker and quicker and like in the mens game speed kills.

Loved the Conti to Brennan play at 0:57 in the vid. Welcome to Tigerland. :p

Sounds like her team mate is a done deal also...

Conti's the best of all our signings. Huge if we land her. 2nd and 3rd round picks wont even get it done so I imagine the league will make up some compo system out of thin air to facilitate it

Other than a player for no compensation, wouldn’t happen , afl would step in behind scenes
Crap compensation is basically no compo, and Conti doesn't get what she wants. To be honest I'm a bit over AFLW now, so don't really care what happens. 2 years in a row the team has been gutted.

Unfortunately for you guys probably the disadvantage of being a foundation club of the AFLW.

2021 sees the rest of the AFL have their own AFLW side doesn’t it or is the expansion due to continue past that?

It sucks for the foundation clubs that they're getting raided but that was always going to happen when the league expands and adds more teams. It's just happening now rather then later.

It is a negative of being a foundation club but lets not forget they've enjoyed some positives from being a foundation club too. They got to watch and support their own team so far, had first crack at premiership glory and played in some of the more historic moments of AFLW.
