This is boring. I can’t get into 4 goals in a half in perfect conditions.

Men, Women, Aliens, doesn’t matter... boring.

I watched three quarters of last nights game. There was only 5 goals in total for whole game.

At present it is not as good as surburban reserves.

How does this quality get TV coverage?

because at the moment it's as good as it gets?

it's a female spin-off of the biggest sporting competition, and it's in modern times

i guarantee you the quality of football in 1898 was probably lower than this

in 130 years i'm sure our offshoots of offspring will be marvelling at the skill level on show

(but yes, it's borderline unwatchable...like watching the male dees circa 2007-2013)

Thanks for that DA I have Been trying desperately to forget 2007- 13.

The difference is that during that period one of the teams in the contest was good and watchable. In Ladies football they are both crap.

my question still stands how come this is on National TV?

Go Pickles Cranston !!!!!!  What a great last half. 

With Daisy, was the match winner for us.

They had a real physical crack in the last too.

I enjoyed that. Stuff the lower quality skills, the Dees had a WIN!

Because it directly appeals to a huge portion of the population.  Women and girls get to see people just like them doing something that that may now aspire to do.  They, in turn, buy jumpers, membership and merchandise; they attend matches and join local teams; they get more involved in the men’s game when winter comes along.  The AFL isn’t doing this out of the goodness of their heart- they’re going to make a lot of money out of this brand of football.

 

On top of that, this was a great match and we have a really good win!  Get on board!

That game was so much better than the rubbish last night. 

Great to see the Demons get better later in the game. 

So often the girls run out of energy in the 2nd half

Great win girls! 4 goals from free kicks to the orange mob. I see the AFL love fest is alive at all levels of footy.

We should [censored] both of them- our ball movement is a class above.

I'm not the greatest fan of AFLW  (as a spectacle), but our team wears red and blue, and that's enough for me!  I even found myself yelling at the box this afternoon, and cursing at the umpires on more than one occasion.  I must be warming to it!  Well done Demons!

I thought Erin Hoare was fantastic today.

Well done Dees, I feared for a while GWS have become our "Norf" in the ladies game....but that song at the end. Ahhhh!
