I'm gonna grab some popcorn & wait for TBR to respond :)

Not at all, I can just picture it now. The umpires about to run out on the ground when they are called into a room with the lights off inside.

The light of a single candle flickers on a cloaked, hooded figure's face, the evil mastermind Ray Chamberlain.

"Before we take the field today, you need to know something," he says. "To umpire, is to be anti-Tiger. It is the sacred vow we all take".

They then say the sacred chant, drink the blood of an endangered Sumatran tiger cub, wipe their mouths on Jack Dyer's first guernsey, and head out on the field ready to screw us again.

I knew you were close to the game but not that close, are you sure you're allowed to let out their secrets like this?

More importantly, do you wear white or green to bed?

Haven't watched much women's footy but watched some of this. Conti is a gun just not a great kick. Mackenzie oozes talent. Brennan looks and moves like a very good player (good overhead) but it appears she doesn't do enough. Kicking for goal was very poor and the gap between skills is huge. Some players don't fumble and can execute both sides with the handball but many have poor handling/handball skills. But the game was much more watchable than what I've seen previously.

For the pies Chloe Molloy looks like an absolute star.

Oh, and Razor's umpiring was as consistently poor as in the men's game

Better effort by Richmond and the umpires but if we didn’t have Conti, we’d lose by 10 goals.
She’s a star.
Fredericks is not

Watched a fair bit of the game, its a much improved spectacle. Some of the players ball handling is super and the players football craft is improving. The depth isn't quite there but you can see the bones of a really watchable game. I even yelled a bit when they ball got loose in the goal square just out of Fredericks reach. With so many girls playing now it will improve in leaps and bounds each year.

Agree on Fredericks, her fitness levels are simply not good enough. She's always too tired to get to the right positions. Brennan looks great in patches but has to do more.

I had to turn it off. The umpiring did my head in. Fredericks should be dropped. She is too slow and unfit for this standard of footy.

Much better game, we were in this right to the end. The standard is improving, our team is a lot better.

Fredericks is not great but my daughter was noticing she gets followed around everywhere on the ground, is she getting a tag? I think she needs to go in harder, has the strength to hurt the opposition.

Great to see a scoreline of 8 goals to 7, pity it wasn't in our favour.

Players from both sides looking knackered at the end, very warm and humid at Princes Park and we simply ran out of time. Good to see we are playing out games to the end, that is an important step in the right direction.

I'm disappointed, they were the better team and should've won. Blues a little bit cleaner with the ball in hand but overall I think the girls let slip a golden opportunity to knock up their first win. 4 goals up in the 2nd, then hosking went off due to that sling tackle and it changed the game, allowed the blues to kick the next 4 and lead by a point at half time.

I love conti and even though she was our best if there is one part of her game she needs to tidy up a tad is her ball use. Mon can tend to just throw it on the boot at times. Cost the team a vital goal at the end of the 3rd.

Fredricks imo the game has gone past her, to slow. Brennan bounces back with a good game which included 2 goals.
Wakefield say no more an absolute gun. Oh, Bec Miller, this girl has done a full circle from last year, she was without a doubt in our best players and held down the backline fine. Used the ball extremely well.

Stahl better than in previous weeks. Molan I'm not a fan, to slow in everything she does, doesn't have the urgency in her game.

McKenzie all class. moves so well, and has good pace. Seymour consistent as usual and Hosking played well, always impressive around the ball.

Overall this team has surprised me, taken it up to the pies and blues in the last 2 games. They have found some speed in their game too which has helped with more I50'S and enabled them to score more.

A few weeks ago we were lamenting that they couldn't score, and that has certainly improved.

At times, I think it must have been round 1, the backline stood up really well under pressure, more early in the game than later.

Now, it is damned hard to build a side from scratch and we are clearly starting from a position where we are well behind the better teams. But geez, if they can get it all working at once they can be competitive and that's what I'm looking for at this stage.

Mind you, the AFL will probably give us a game against North next week, I reckon they would be pretty handy against their own men's team.

Overall umpires weren't to bad but with a minute and 5 secs to go, There were 2 howlers in the space of 5 seconds against Conti, she was taken high twice and no free. Would've easily been in distance to attempt to level the scores.

Just a knee to the head.

Not one but 2 blues players come over the top of Conti and get her high, play on.
