  1. Hey Tim Fixture distortion indeed. The VFLW Season 2024 fixture featured Sydney and GWS for the very first time. It gave these teams the opportunity to play some competitive footy heading into the AFLW season. The 5 game ‘experiment’ took place against AFLW-aligned clubs from Rounds 3-7. The Victorian-based VFLW opposition sides fielded just a handful of AFLW players and unsurprisingly 80-point thrashings resulted. One exception was Collingwood who won by 2 points as they played 15 AFLW players v 19 from Sydney. The two NSW coaches were disappointed that the opposition clubs did not field more AFLW-listed players. The tragedy is that percentage counted in these ‘incursion’ matches which hurts Casey who lost to the Swans by 85 points. On the bright side the Swans and GWS AFLW teams won’t be playing any more VFLW games and no finals appearances for them either.
  2. Was she a left footer? If tall and a forward it could have been Georgia Gall. Pissano is not tall. There was recent photo posted of the team’s pre season team camp at Wilsons Prom and it appeared that Grace Beasley has joined from US college basketball. She has some impressive moves.
  3. Kev, don’t you mean Pissano? Her highlights reel suggests all of the above. Jordi Ivey has been delisted.
  4. A generational talent is Reid, amazing.
  5. Need some help with a couple… Sitting down in order: Russell Robertson, David Neitz, Dr Andrew Daff, Andrew Leoncelli, Anthony McDonald, Travis Johnstone, Daniel Ward Standing up in order: Nathan Brown, tall guy?, Guy Rigoni (his daughter Gemma has just been recruited to our AFLW team), ??, Brad Green, Alistair Nicholson, the reverend Neil Daniher, Paul Hopgood, Ben Dutchy Holland, Bring Back Stephen Powell, ??, Rod Grinter.
  6. Hopefully not punching them, just pinching. Nice conspiracy theory DS, Libby and Daisy are close. Time will tell 😎.
  7. Good question. On the recent AFLW Tagged Podcast, Ruby Schleischer also raised this issue. Expecting movement. Gold Coast are chasing our defender Charlotte Wilson and along with speedy father-daughter selection Jemma Rigoni joining us, there's 2 changes already. Gemma Bastiani has written a piece here highlighting some of our weaknesses. List management will inevitably result in some existing players moving clubs this offseason but hopefully none of the untouchables. A big-bodied midfielder and a strong key defender would surely be on top of our shopping list.
  8. Great post @Dees_In_October 100% concur with this particular statement. Blaithin Mackin certainly one exception who has improved and Aimee looks a keeper. Agree on Goldie too. Our Irish contingent really stood up these last 3 ordinary weeks.
  9. Thanks @Dees_In_October Rhi comes straight in if she’s cherry ripe. We really miss the run of Casey and Lampy. Cats will be a serious challenge this week.
  10. Nah 😎let Brisbane defeat Adelaide at home this weekend while we knock off North on Saturday to go top of the ladder. Then in round 10, after beating Freo in round 9, we defeat Brisbane to become minor premiers, McLelland trophy winners and first dibs on a home grand final at Ikon….
  11. 6. Edo Z, was incredible with 5 marks, 5 goals and a poster. BOG? 5. Gay, Maddi was strong all day and led our defensive group 4. Goldie, incredible energy and matched the Crows’ strength at the contest 5. Hanksy, was in everything trying her best against the Crows’ behemoths 6. Hore, moved into the middle by Mick to counteract their mid strength which reduced our forward power Special mention to Lize Mac with 2 fantastic running goals.
  12. Dying moments of last season’s Grand Final, Captain Kate intercepts Brisbane’s last foray and kicks to VC Tyla for a game saving mark. On field leadership. Great choices.
  13. Yes, those Ikon evening vibes have been an enjoyable experience for Dees fans. Winning helps! The Season 8 opener against the Pies on Friday September 1, with Bri Davey and Brit Bonnici returning, will be a cracker. Will they run a practice game double header like they did last season? Hope so.
  14. The tragic passing of Adelaide senior coach Phil Walsh.
