Was just thinking. .... if the criteria in the AFL for a father/son is 100 games and the AFLW father/daughter, 1 game.... What is it for mother/daughter and mother/son?
Somewhere down the track it's going to happen and it'll be interesting to see how they come up with a number given how few games the girls currently play.

interesting to see who the first mother / son player will be. Any of our female players have any kids?

Picking star footballers from breeding stock is a bit like racehorses. There is some sort of correlation but it’s by no means a certainty.
How many Brownlows did Shane Martin win?
Shane Tuck and his brother Travis would have been the best bred footballers ever. From a Tuck and an Ablett :LOL:
Maybe that can be a new thread? Best bred footballers ever !!

Fathers who have lean muscle mass have a tendency to father daughters.( urban legend that seems to have some merit)

We need to tell players to father their kids after they retire. (they are too fit)

That theory has not worked so well for Richo and The Tuck boys were pretty much all born whilst dad was plying

We need to invest in a gender selection lab at Punt Rd

I believe Brad Ottens is soon to have a boy (they already have 2 girls).

I assume he'd be eligible for both Tigers and Salties under F/S?
