Just watching the Crows vs GWS, it has become pretty obvious that the lady Crows like to throw their heads back to draw free kicks any chance they get.

A suggestion for the television director:
Try and stick with the camera that has a clear picture, the avant-garde thing with rain covered lenses doesn't work.

I like 7mate’s synopsis of the game:

“The Eagles will be facing The Dockers clash at Western Dobby.”

Channel 7 mistaking Bowers for Haynes. Kelli Underwood trying to ride the Eagles home.
You can sense the disappointment in the Ch 7 box.

There's nothing like calling the game from Melbourne even though you can't pronounce 'derby' properly and don't know one player from another.

But we didn't lose it.

Surely this is the longest winning streak in the competition?

Nine in a row. I think that equals the best streak by our men’s team.

There look to be some quality teams this year if percentages are anything to go on. I know that it’s only two games but Brissie and Norfs have got off to flyers.

We certainly had the short end of the stick playing the OOFTIT"s in a monsoon. It really halted our ability to win and maintain the ball, blunting our forwardline. Fingers crossed that's the last of the wet games for our girls.

Probably was a good game to have Katie-Jayne Grieve's aggressive physicality rampaging through the middle!
Nathan: When did you get balls?
Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.
Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.

The level of skill has improved enormously the past couple of seasons, even in yesterdays terrible weather the skills were on the display and the teams played well. The game is no longer the scrum it was a few seasons ago, it is open with good running and some great kicking skills.

Good to see the AFLW embrace Pride Round this week.

I’ve always felt the Fremantle Football Club let itself down by not joining the AFL and half the AFL clubs in supporting the ‘Yes’ campaign during the 2017 marriage equality vote. I understand the intention of keeping the club apolitical, but when you know you have players in same sex relationships on your list, know how hard the lead up to the vote was on same sex couples, and are supposed to be representing one of the more inclusive communities in Australia, I thought it was a bit gutless.

I thought it was again telling Freo were one of the few clubs not to recognise Pride Week on their guernsey / socks on the weekend.

I quite enjoyed this article. I must admit, I never thought about the effect inter-club and intra-club relationships and breakups would have on a team.

Whilst the acceptance of LGBTIA players in AFLW is laudable it is sad that not one male player feels they are empowered or supported to come out. I cant believe that there is not one male LGBTIA player in the AFL.

But then why would they come out, you look at the moronic comments our indigenous players get, imagine the keyboard warriors if a brave soul did come out.

We still have a very long way to go before the AFL represents the broader community on this.
