When it becomes more established and mature, do you think becoming an AFLW coach will ever become a pathway to becoming a senior AFL coach, or will it always be too different a league.

So instead of taking a gamble on an assistant coach, the AFL club could take the pick of the best senior coach in the AFLW.

No, but a popular and enthralling thread you have going here though.

I reckon it will be a pathway, at the very least, to development coaches who will be good managers of footballers who juggle work, family and education responsibilities.

If the head coach role is to manage teaching, admin, media roles while knowing a shipload about footy ... why not?

our reserves side so why why not take a big interest in how they play, basically get to see the how the young players and recruits perform under some real pressure ie V Subi
when not playing away a lot of our snr players are there supporting their team mates

You did not convince me to change my opinion.

Once we have retiring senior AFLW players, I like the idea of picking them up as (initially) assistant coaches for the dudes.

Most of my best people managers and strategic bosses have been women.
