AFLWomen's - No Bombers still


#682

700 posts on and people are still clamouring in to lie about how good it is…

same coin different sides.


#683

A close game of footy is good footy, skill level be damned.

If some measure of skill level is more important than a head to head battle then I would suggest watching surfing or gymnastics or something like that.


#684

Go watch some u10s. can see 6vs8point losses.


#685

Bomberblitz: do you care?


#686

Yeah nah if you knew how into women’s sport I am you’d know this is a really bad idea


#687

See? It works.


#688


#689

You’d hope that all coaches will give that the “suggestion noted” treatment


#690

Was just about to post the same thing.

Final confirmation that the AFL is putting on a show, not a competition.

Why don’t they change the rules of the competition instead of offering suggestions? Are they really inviting a situation where the umpire will not bounce the ball until the 5/6/5 formation is in place? I hope a team lines up any other way and stares the umpire down.

Far out.


#691

Don’t you know the AFL’s advertising slogan for this comp is “Dare to create” (Which is a WTF slogan anyway).


#692

They’re doing the out of bounds rule wrong.

if team x is the last to touch it before it goes out, y gets a free handpass in. not a kick because no one will go along the boundary line.


#693

Wow. I hope they get told to fark off.


#694

What a cheek to ask them to play a certain way!
Winning is what they would like to do before putting on a theatre show for the spectators to suit the AFL.
Suck it up AFL!


#695

I wonder which club(s) leaked it to Fox.


#696

Are there any actual rule changes this year in AFLW?

It wouldn’t be the worst thing to modify the game to suit the skill level and speed.


#697

They added the last-touch-out rule to increase congestion in the middle… Forgot to mention that in the memo, for some reason.


#698

Fark Carlton is one I believe and on his radio show a couple of days ago Ricciutto was talking about it so being a board member of the Crows I’d say he “let it slip”


#699

Does anyone doubt that these little memos also make their way to the umpires department during the season?


#700

If ever there was a form of football requiring a smaller, rectangular field and modified rules, it’s aflw


#701

There’s modified rules in U18’s right? What’s the justification there?
