Yep, hearing about players tearing it up on the training track really is not particularly enlightening.

The men's coverage when in season will be far more than we see of the women now, and the women will largely disappear when the men are playing. This is just the way it is.

I agree that our women's team are not playing great footy at the moment, they are definitely behind the 8 ball in trying to catch up with the better teams. But some of the good women's teams are playing far better footy now, it is developing fast. The game is improving so quickly it will be a lot better to watch in a year or two.

Hopefully we will become more competitive too - maybe we are a decent chance for a win this week - here's hoping.

Agreed.

I've actually been watching a bit and going to games.

We're much better this year than last. Unfortunately/fortunately so is the rest of the competition.

Our showing in round 1 would have won in round 1 last season.

Somehow I think our chance of winning this week just took a dive. Collingwood have a very good AFLW team, which is even more of an irritation given we were going for a licence at the same time and somehow missed out.

Not a huge issue for me given the time of year, but then I'm not a big RFC website visitor.

AFLW inevitably eats into media coverage of the pre-season and dampens anticipation of the real thing.

It's a simple solution just don't jumble it all on the main page. A simple two button click through front page would solve plenty.
Hate having to wade through a plethora of AFLW stories to find info on the men's team. Let us choose what we're interested in instead of shoving it all together.
But it's all about wanting us to embrace the women's game isn't it..

50/50 today Olds.

I reckon rfc read your thread

Not to downplay TOO's influence but it could also be that in the past few days the coach has been in the media, the promo for the Amazon doco has been released and there was a training camp so there is actually some interesting content for the men.

I'll pop this here for the sake of brevity.

One area the RFC has been absolutely deplorable in is the coverage of the intra-club today.

This time last week I was watching a very slick production of Port Adelaide's game, a live stream with commentary and interviews throughout. I've seen other clubs doing similar, or a live blog or even at least a notice of the game and the opportunity for people to have a look live.

To run a live stream from Punt Road today would have been more or less a zero cost exercise. It really is quite pathetic and leaves us a long way behind the industry standard.

100,000 plus loyal members deserve much better.

Agree 100% , still doesn’t seem to be anything on the website.
There better be a stream for the dees match , though at least I will be attending that game wether it’s open to the public or not.
