Kinda funny all the campaigners whinging about women’s ball sports being “shoved down their throats”.. most of them are old enough to have lived through the age of the shoviest-down-throaty communications and media....The whole ‘shoves down their faces’ thing though...
Looking at the AFL websitr right now, for example: the first thing that hits me when I load it is a bank advertisement that takes up about half the screen. There’s literally nothing about AFLW unless I click on the Womens tab
Or alternatively, when I go to the HS SuperCoach home page - I get 2 separate advertisements covering 1:3 of the page for gambling websites.
The SuperCoach Facebook page - I’m looking at it now, and I see: an advertisement for the ‘sacked’ podcast (nothing to do with SuperCoach), an article about some country footballer (nothing to do with SuperCoach), etc
No one gets triggered by articles about random country blokes or bank ads. Occasionally there’s a complaint about gambling, but not really - no one gets abusive or angry over it, just a lot of hand wringing.
And yet for some reason the AFLW is what is being ‘forced down our throats’.
Wake up folks what do you think Rupert Murdoch has been doing to you for decades? What do you think the free to air television stations have been doing since the advent of tv? Junk mail every few days... all relatable content you want to read about?
At least AFL W is sports. It’s even the same code, same organisation and half the same sponsors. Same teams, same venues, same fans. Hell its strange how they could even put those two things on the same domain!!
