    I don't understand why they don't shorten the length of the ground for it so there are more goal.

    There's a button on your remote that prevents it being on TV, try that next time.

    I actually thought it was a good contest.



    The standard is improving.

    I have, but It's a bit like saying. Don't listen to the news of the war in Syria, that way it isn't happening

    It doesn't work that way. Ramming a half baked unfinished product down our throats helps no one and insults all. This thing needs 20 rule changes at the very least, halving the size of the ground is obvious step 1

    Much much better.

    As long as you're managing your expectations of the standard of something in its very early days, it's enjoyable.

    As a girl who grew up being told I wasn't allowed to play footy, my parents sent me to basketball instead of being allowed to do Auskick with my brother, being told at primary school I couldn't play footy for interschool sports and forced into the netball team, and who had no avenue to play the game outside of interschool tournaments until the last 5 years, I think it's great that it's an option. If you don't enjoy it, don't watch it, but it's so disrespectful the way I'm seeing people talk about this on socials.

    Who's ramming it down your throat honestly. Turn your telly off, scroll past it on your news feed. Have some respect, what if your daughter wants to play AFL? Are you going to tell her she can't because it's pathetic and boring?

    Respect and news feed time is a finite resource really. It should go to the W-League, WNBL. These sports are of s good standard. This however simply is not

    I won't let my daughter play AFL. Much like I won't let her join the UFC. Basketball/netball/soccer will be okay

    I mean the NBL or A-League doesn't get the coverage it 'deserves' its not really the AFL's fault.

    I do think the AFL had a problem trying to compare the Womens AFL to mens which was a bad idea from the start.

    however you can see clearly see the game has become more professional and I think if they focused on more about saying 'watch us evolve and grow' I think the product would do a lot better.

    I think if the AFL build the comp slowly I think it could actually do really well and have more of a chance in the future (maybe in 10 years) to be self sufficient and have its own identity.

    I actually agree with this aspect but the counter point would be to actually develop a product to answer this problem and not what they've done by forcing "this" into the public eye.

    AFLW is just a terrible standard of football, your average D Grade team would beat any of these teams and I don't see anyone clamoring to have them broadcast for all the guys who weren't good enough to play AFL.

    Create a genuine grass roots AFLW product so women can play the sport if they choose but this product is genuinely worse than AFLX and has no place being in the media or taking away broadcasting minutes from much worthier products. All that money being spent promoting the horrible AFLW product could easily be redirected into developing genuine grass root products for female football.

    The AFL rams it hard, I'd have no problem at all if the clubs/AFL would stop using the AFL affiliated media sources to promote it. Create an AFLW app instead of spamming the AFL app with the crap. Create an AFLW twitter for all the clubs instead of spamming the AFL clubs. Yes I just scroll past it but I don't want to have to waste my time doing that and I don't want to have to disable notifications on the AFL app for example.

    If the product is worthy (my opinion obviously is it isn't but that doesn't matter) then it will survive and flourish on it's own and let it do that, stop force feeding it down peoples throats with your existing product, keep them separate.

    If they're not willing to develop separate apps, at least add a filter to the existing one so it isn't spammed with it.

    I actually think women's football is a fine idea, just think they've gone about it ass backwards and are harming the product by braodcasting such a truly awful spectacle.

    Yeah the AFL is the issue here, not the girls trying to live out their dream playing footy. Happy to criticise the execution of the competition rather than the standard. It's not a comparable product to the mens, rather an option for the women. Would much rather see money invested into state comps that run as proper seasons over winter and have junior teams through there, still have the resources of the affiliation but the way they have done an 8 round competition over summer is just unfair to the girls.

    My main gripe is the heroes on social media making comments, here's a sample from one post today. Why these people felt the need to comment, aware that's all of social media but have seen much nastier than the below as well and if it was your daughter / sister running around trying to get a kick you'd be pretty upset with people mouthing off like that.

    As there was no option for Aussie rules when I was joining a Saturday team sport, I'm pretty committed to my outdoor soccer team and can't do both. Still considering making the switch though.

    I'm so good at burying my head in the sand I've hardly seen anything AFL-X related.

    Yeah I find the AFLW stuff much more pervasive than AFLX, AFLX is just the AFL and a few of their bought and paid journos trying to push it and then hilarious "no one gives a fuck" comments.

    AFLW is pages of crap.

    Im not sure myself. I think it is one of those things where I was born with a crop of awesome and then I have kind of watered the gardens, tended to the farm and created this farmable mass of fantastic brilliance. I have so much to give and share out but just not enough hours in the day to give it all out.

    Its hard sometimes

    Why should you not be able to do something perfectly legal and have a friend take a photo/video of it? Like saying if you went bungie jumping you should make sure no one films it or you drink a pint at the pub that no one gets a photo.

    This is textbook AFL media trying to create a shitstorm that shouldn't exist and the perpetually outraged jumping on the opportunity to be outraged.
