Richmond has a better list.

Let Puke-on Park enjoy their one and only victory over us.
We did.Disappointing start but they will be much better for the run and I think a fair number of the players will now know the level of AFLW. We played a practice match the other weekend but it was against another of the expansion clubs, should have played a practice match against an established club.
Took us to the last to find our feet and play some decent football. Carlton had the game win by then, though, so they may have eased up.Unfortunately couldn't watch the game tonight but will have a squiz at some stage over the weekend. Bad loss but gotta start somewhere though I guess.
If there was any quarter to watch which would be best?
Must have lost your voice. Umpiring was abysmal.Reckon the best players stand out even more in the women's comp than the men's. But even they tend to look a little awkward, as though they're new to the sport. For want of a better description, the athleticism lacks grace. Perhaps to do with the comparative lack of strength.
I'll confess to yelling at the TV early when umpiring decisions went against us.
I loved watching it. I loved the intensity of the team for the most part and I think we have some very good players. Conti is a female version of Prestia..Wakefield was fantastic , so was Monaghan...Chuot did well , she just has to learn to take those Marks. Sabrina Frederic is not the "Superstar" they keep calling her..should be dominating in the air but rarely does. All up a very pleasant and pleasing experience. I am sorry you struggle to find any joy Tigers.Checked out the game & watched as much as I could. I lost interest pretty quickly as I have when I've watched women's footy previously.
I don't doubt the efforts of the girls & think it's great there's an AFLW competition for girls to aspire towards but in terms of entertainment as it stand it's just not for me. Waay too many basic skill errors & so scrappy to watch.
It will get better in time but I don't think I'll ever really embrace the comp.
