The EFC job is to win AFL premierships. This is crap, noise, rubbish whatever you want to call it.
And enough of the politically correct BS as well. Would any of you pay your hard earned to watch a women's football match ?
I most certainly would. The women's game I saw on TV was one of the most entertaining matches I have seen in a long time. Far better that many of the men's matches that have been on in recent years.
I'd hazard a guess and suggest either the rules were slightly different too, or else the umpiring was far superior.
It was a cracking match. I'll be looking forward to the lady bombers.
Slower game makes umpiring a lot easier
Again though, if Pazza says the women's is the same quality as Div 3 men's; why would you (presumably) pay more to watch the gals over the guys?
Aligning with an AFL side will definitely boost numbers, but let's not kid ourselves into thinking a women's game is going to even half fill Etithad as a stand alone game
Games need to be played as a curtain raiser, or out in the burbs somewhere
