We need sackings and a take over.
Can't watch anything wearing yellow and black that keeps on losing

We are close to a win.

Very close.

The result today tells nothing of the story, in which a very Richmondy women's outfit took all the time and space away from a normally composed Collingwood.

Fierce attack on the ball carrier, with other people guarding the outlets? Moving the ball forward with every touch? Giving them nothing on the kick out? Running in numbers straight down the middle? Where have I seen that before?

You can see it starting to click.

Mon Conti is Dusty in tight, but unfortunately Dangerfield with time and space. Jet, with things to work on.

Brennan should play wing from now on.

Gabbie Seymour and Sabrina are a very effective ruck combo, and our midfield beat one of the best in it today. Brancatisano, Hosking, Burchall and Jacques are all good footballers.

Our backline is solid, very unlucky to concede as many as they did today (both through umpiring and the bounce of the ball). Is Cordner the best intercept mark in the league?

Forward line is the big issue. Ellie McKenzie will be a star, but we need to get more speed, and skill in the forward fifty. Absolutely butchered half a dozen free goals.

And why does Razor Ray insist on ruining every game of football I watch?

Honestly, you could market AFLW on the absence of Razor. If you had it.

Not a criticism at all, however does anyone know why ContI is not in the leadership group ?
Missed the pre season due to basketball commitments so club said if you can’t be here for pre season, you can’t be in leadership group . Missed 4 weeks training . She is clearly the fittest player in the entire competition. And easily best player at the club . Very harsh decision. Considering 2 players traded in are in the leadership. . Mon won the B&F last year as well

Yeah, the pressure has improved a lot, big step up in that department.

We still need more speed though.

Better positioning/reading of the game will come with experience. Each game they improve but the worry is what happens when the season ends.

As for the umpiring, TBR, it isn't just AFLW having an impact, the umpiring was woeful at times. I saw a player just about get her head ripped off and it was a ball up. Some of the free kicks were ridiculous, including some we got. Simply not good enough when marginal umpiring decisions have such an impact on the game.

On a serious note, I don't understand why the elite panel isn't doing all the games, instead of just cameos.

I mentioned in our first season I went to a game in Bendigo and they had a local kid join the panel for our game. That's not right and disrespects the competition. I can't imagine the AFL trotting out a 16 year old umpire from the Diamond Valley to join the panel in round 1 for the experience.

I'm not a big Brennan fan but as I've mentioned endlessly we need her more up the ground. She is not a marking forward! How much better did we look when she was moved in the second half!

Love Wakefield. She never stops presenting and is a legit marking target.

Pheobe Monahan seems to have lost a yard of pace. Maybe maximise her power more by giving her a negating role up the ground.

Miller, Cordner and Ross are solid down back even though Ross was undisciplined a few times.

Love watching Mon Con and now McKenzie. Those 2 in the middle at the feet of Gabby Seymour are worth the price of admission (if we were allowed to go to the game of course)

Gabby Seymour is a the real deal.

Stahl is tough but needs to find a way to stay in the game. Flashes in and out.

The new girl Tessa Lavey is a keeper.

We are so fumbly even dropping simple handpasses and chest marks. Other teams look 'one touch' against us.

One thing i noticed from watching other games this weekend is the lack of protection for the ball carrier compared to the better sides.

2 times in the last quarter we had the opportunity to go high into the danger area on top of our two marking targets instead we went low into the pockets. Alas gifted them a free exit from defence.

Valiant pressure all around the ground but unfortunately, another honourable loss.

Hope.

watched this game.

1. McKenzie looked like the classiest player on the ground. Star in the making?

2. Brennan played great up the ground.

3. Love how Conti goes in.

a dreadful fundamental error passage in our defensive goal square after our full back kicked 20m OOTF, then our defender held onto the forward, when the kicker was having a shot for goal, and if she had honoured the lead, it would have gone about 10m and been play on. I didn't mind the game, but that passage was like U12's.

Watched the Crows V Freo and this game looked a league below I thought.

I have written a few times that Brennan would be far better behind the ball. In that last qtr especially she was great and the team looked far more dangerous.

Yeah that was awful game sense because on top of that the clock had run out so even if they passed it the siren would sound before the mark. Literally the only thing they couldn't afford to do was give away a free kick.

That aside though, I was impressed with the performance overall. I think given we were drawing from a heavily spent talent pool to begin with, we are doing a pretty good job of building a side.

Yeah, I don't know, think we may have been able to do a little better, no wins so far.

I reckon the talent coming through now will be a lot better, it will take a little time to build a good team, but the younger players have played more football and the standards are rising quickly. I'd be going for lots of young players to build a side over a few years. McKenzie is a great example of this, although likely a cut above most youngsters she is the sort of player we should see more of coming through the draft.

My main take is how much more watchable it seems to be this year. We're not balanced but a new club, it will take time. I see enough to think it could be a quick ascent up the ladder. Really enjoyed watching it though and have gone from indifference (because the skill level was so low a couple of years ago) to thinking the AFLW is an excellent filler between cricket and footy. It's carving itself a slot in the sporting calendar and growing, which is fantastic.

Worst umpiring I’ve seen since our men’s season last year.
Some crucial, disgraceful decisions directly in front of goals has gifted the opposition gimme goals in all 3 games, highlighted by the fact that most games are low scoring affairs.
At our end it’s play on.
The bias runs deep within the umpiring fraternity
