"We didn’t hire Daisy because she's a female. We hired Daisy because of her qualifications as a student of the game, as someone who has been involved in it for a really long period of time," Dangerfield told womens.afl.

"You listen to Daisy when she commentates, and she nails it, it takes some of the commentators half a game to catch up with where the game is actually flowing, and she's picked up on that immediately. We'll look to draw on that.

Abbie Holmes is great as a special comments commentator not sure why she wouldn’t get a full time gig.

My Friday Forecast -

* Selwood is not well received by the City end
* MT had enough of 4 umpires before quarter time
* Mitchell gets a lot of it, does nothing with it
* Geelong mids dominant
* Cats get it done by 21pts
* Attendance 88,446

Absolute rabble.

Huge disadvantage to the clubs playing on the G this weekend, will be injuries galore.
I'm just glad our home ground is at Geelong......

Seriously when are they going to stop these morons trying to bounce the ball?
Just throw the ******* thing up!

Then he undoes his good work by his lack of spoiling on Rohan.

Looks like a couple of significant knee injuries to Stewart and De Koning?

The quick ball movement to set up Rohans goal before half time was great to watch.

Talking about bad commentators
Dwyane Russell, let's not call it a Snap kick like everyone else has for years, but it's a Hook kick :shock:
