Interesting taste in movies old boy . Care for a narrative ?

On the topic however , I am not against females playing football just the money and exposure ahead of better football to watch.

Just to throw my two bobs' worth in as a teacher: AFLW is creating a lot of interest in football from our female students. We are now seeing a lot of young ladies kicking the football around on the oval and also participating in the actual sport. This is also developing more of an interest for them in the actual AFL (men's) as well.
Interest amongst older people is somewhat less though: as an example, our AFL Football Tipping Comp gets about 40 participants whilst only 5 signed up for the AFLW Tipping Comp - a pretty fair indication, IMHO, of adult interest in the game.

Cheers

That can only be a good thing.

Many posters on here have enjoyed the great things that football and its clubs can bring. Mateship, the joy of playing our national game, a sense of achievement, pride, physical and mental fitness, and, dare I say it, for some, a bit of cash. Why would you want to deny them the opportunity?

I don't have any real passion for Ice Hockey. So, I don't watch it, read about it or seek out the scores.

Those who play it do not take any skin off my nose.

The Championship and College sports are National the SANFL is not.

Fair play to those who still support AFLM and those who follow AFLW, your choice. I find them a piss poor imitation of the genuine article and a joke. Don't miss it, refuse to watch it and I'm sure the pittance I and those of my era used to put in in comparison to the new 'fans' means it will make a negligible difference to the bottom line of Gill and his cronies. Which is all they genuinely care about.

The simple equation,if the AFL are serious is have the Womans league play a season aside the Mens league. I am sure the marketing machine will ensure no Mens trials soon as it crosses over. Its not that hard to comprehend.
Many have got sucked into this whole political correctness stuff but just tow the line .

A fair enough point, only reason I hadn't scrapped the AFL team off was laziness. Haven't watched them for years, only watch SANFL these days and am quite content. Why does it upset you so much that I don't like something?
