The women's league has made giant steps forward in it's short existence and it concerns me that the MFC are
not aware of the fact we are falling behind and I put this down to our coaching staff. Coaches learn from their previous coaches and
in the early stages of the competition, coaches from 2nd and 3rd tier sufficed but now the game needs people of a higher calibre.
Not one of our coaches has experience at a high level of football; for example look at the bio of our development coach
"The brother of senior coach Mick, John Stinear works as a Development Coach with Melbourne's forwards as well as a match-day runner.
Stinear has been involved with the club since the inaugural 2017 AFLW season and has a playing background at Southern Football League side, St Kilda City, where he was part of back-to-back Premiership sides in 2009 and 2010."
and you wonder why we can't kick goals.
The team list is probably the best in the competition and deserves better coaching; they need to be taught how to
handball properly; there is only a handful of girls that can use handball effectively
clear congestion with kicks off the ground
stop the opposition getting the ball away when tackled
So for the rest of the year i suggest they get Mark Williams to help out once a week. It couldn't hurt
but it might iron out some problems.
Most of the other clubs have better game plans than us but inferior lists; that is because they are new to the competition
but give them time and they will be better than us.
As one of the formation clubs we need to advance instead of stagnating.
We won't win a flag the way things are now. Ever.
