For once you and I are on the same page SD...I enjoy elite international women's netball, hockey, gymnastics and so on but why push huge $ into something which is currently and always will be rubbish...the AFL would be far better of putting additional funding into grass roots and community based footy including development programmes for players, coaching clinics for junior coaches and better infrastructure for suburban teams instead of this crap.

Why is footy like this in Australia. The powers that be think up a dumb idea and make us look like dicks for objecting. Somehow momentum starts and can't be stopped. There was nothing wrong with WAFL club management of the colts - look at last year's draft. What was the problem that needed fixing? There is nothing wrong with the colts-reserves-league set up but the powers that be won't stop until they've messed with it.

How about the AFL gives every club great lights and women's footy is played after the league match?

I happened upon the Brissy v Adelaide game a couple of days ago - being shown live on the Australia+ network - and must admit I was pleasantly surprised by the standard.

Ended up watching, and enjoying, for about 10 minutes.

They are, BC - into development of the women's game. My 13 yo grand-daughter is currently part of an intense, and well resourced program being run out of Subi oval. She is well over 6ft already, and built more like John Nicholls than Matthew Burton. :)

They are fair dinkum crap...plenty of endeavour and they're not afraid to have a go but the skill level, decision making and execution were at about under 14s level...and that's probably doing a disservice to the under 14s. I'm with you Bazza...I used to get at the ressies around half time to see how they were going but now I'll rock up after the women have finished.


Yeah BC , didn't watch it ( and wont) but from all accounts its was a total farce.

apparently they are expecting 40k this weekend at 2 bucks a pop, hope it gets better because at this rate it will be consigned to the dust bin of history once they start charging full entrance fees.

So much money wasted on this rubbish , while WAFL and grass roots footy sinks in the manure.

I hope some big grants are coming the way of WAFL clubs to alter al the change rooms. I guess Freo oval is not so bad they have SFFC plus the defunct dockers building to use.

Yep agree 100% , Im keen on womens Hockey and Netabll Soccer esp at Olympic and Commonwealth Games level , its great to watch and women are 100% suited to it, but as for pumping millions into something that will never be any good fair dinkum idiots.

Confirmed by who Bazza , I hope you're not using Hackdorn for a source , there's only six women's teams anyway so that means one game won't be affected so I don't know how that will work.

There is already 9 WAWFL teams - all aligned to the WAFL clubs

The Ressies compshouldnt be bumped for the women’s fixtures, as someone suggested theyd be better playing after the league under lights

At our AGM last Thursday it was stated that the number of women's teams under the auspices of the WAFC would be 6 and we would find out around May of this year.

My contempt for the WAFC continues to increase. To dislocate the current structure of the women's competition (juniors, reserves and league) on a Sunday and similarly the men's competition on a Saturday, it is so self-evident will damage both structures. It wasn't mentioned at the AGM but if one has the ability to add 1 and 1 and get 2 for an answer, the next change will be to remove the colts from their usual time slot to play all 4 games a centralised venue.

The proposed changes are nothing more nor less than the WAFC trying to provide a reason for their existence once they have DESTROYED the WAFL competition.

True blood Australian Rules football , in it's pure Saturday afternoon form , died over 20 years ago

Since that time - it has been twisted & contorted into an almost Frankenstein-esque parody of Basketball , Waterpolo , Gridiron , Soccer.

A national female's league shouldn't surprise , the Victorians have turned a once great sport into a grotesque neon ablution block of drug addicts , criminally associated & influenced slime , conflicted by interest & bigotrised pile of shit for idiot masses via television

Football once ruled each weekend - now the weekend is ruled by dickhead self-appointed "superstar" nobodies , advertising wankery of the highest order and deceit

When some ridiculous poofter fantasy competition takes importance over nursery state leagues you just know the real game itself has been extinguished
