GWS and Brisbane get pick 1&2 in the draft "lottery".

The AFL like making it easy for the conspiracy theorists, don't they?


(we got pick 3)

16 a side

Quote:
WOMEN’S AFL will be 16-a-side after the AFL Commission approved the significant rule change for the inaugural competition.

The Herald Sun revealed last month 16-a-side plus six on the bench was the league’s preferred option for its debut AFLW season starting in late January or early February.

The rule change initially received mixed reviews from players, with some not keen on changing the fabric of the game, but almost 80 per cent of players surveyed from the women’s exhibition match on September 3 supported the trialled rule.

The reduced numbers on the field appeared to open the game up.

AFL general manager of game and market development Simon Lethlean said the rule was signed off after extensive research and consultation during 10 exhibition games this year.

The AFLW competition will also use a size 4 football — full size is 5 — and there will be 15-minute quarters plus time on after goals and major injuries.

The AFL plans a two-month season with seven home-and-away rounds plus finals to run in February and March


the same time as the A league finals - its about encroaching on soccer and cricket...

BEST OF LUCK :donk: :donk: :donk:


Haha...packed house. They've paid their way this season already.

Big difference between tonight's game and the exhibition games in previous years highlights lack of depth which will take many years to fill but outside of NSW and QLDi think soccer would have more to worry about than the AFL.

I reckon Vescio will be gracing ads on TV consistently well before any A-League players (except for those coming back looking to top up their retirement nest eggs)

carlton joining says nothing about winning premierships - just an embarrassing idea from city hall adopted by our compliant board with the AFL's aim to make money (with no assurance that money will be made) masquerading as a political agenda.


We can agree to disagree MF...I thought just a little bit of you would have been pleased that the club had the guts to go through with this. They didn't waiver once. Everything they've rolled out on this has been positive. I'll take small wins like that any day of the week. At the very least - recognise that professional football clubs become a lot more female friendly.



i can see your point but - this decision is an easy political one - not a big ticket idea of building princes park back for example

says to me Carlton is on another lower level orbit/trajectory than the swans hawks geelongs - we are sitting under the shadow of city hall not shining a light and being the antagonist to the afl which is when we are at our best

Foxtel content aggregation managing director Deanne Weir said: “We couldn’t be more thrilled.

“All the games last week rated higher than the A-League (soccer) except for the big Melbourne clash. It’s a new league and everyone is getting behind it. It is bringing new people to the AFL.

“It’s a great beginning and we look forward to it being there for years to come.”


Very interesting indeed!!

Worried about soccer lol

Well it would have been handy if Wayne Deledio and John Lloyd were women.

Wow, anyone that was denigrating Carltons investment in the women's game needs to take another look!!

As I expected, it's been a boon for the club

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/t ... d70b22f77b

Quote:
Women represented only 27 per cent of Carlton’s membership base last year, but that figure is up to 35 per cent and climbing.

Carlton’s AFLW team will financially break even this year, but the greater benefits are a more inclusive membership and supporter base.


AFLW will only grow and with that are opportunities to build a truly great inclusive club supported and followed by a great mix of people.

Yet another tick of approval from me for the current board and the direction they're taking the club in.

Just need to hang tough this year, as I also expect to really bottom out on the field but we will do so playing kids with the eye firmly on the future

Tough Grand Final at the moment. Crows look like they have the edge.

Hmm, so it’s alright for her to smash through the girls/women in the local leagues, but we don’t want her doing it in the AFLW in front of a large television audience.

So what is it AFL, are we pregnant or just a little bit pregnant.

I suppose any place where there is large amounts of money or prestigious awards involved, the AFL has to protect the integrity of the code for its members.

a 6'3" 100Kg person who is effectively a 'man' could easily win the comp B&F year on year.

Good call.

But OK for her to ride roughshod through the local ACT women’s League.

I wonder how long it is before female athletes stop biting their tongue for fear of retribution, and start complaining about "men" competing against them and robbing them of medals/opportunities?
