    I am jumping on board the GWS women's bandwagon as I want to support the local Sydney players who were drafted. I feel like women's footy in NSW is a fair way behind some of the other States, but hopefully this kicks things up a notch.

    Most of the local players would probably be Swans supporters, with the players actually playing for Swans aligned team. I imagine that if the Swans had fielded a team, they would have drafted the players that have been selected by the Giants. I agree the 5k isn't a huge amount of money but convinced that these players would have played for nothing, just the honour of playing at the highest level. Even when the state side travelled to Adelaide during the year, they had to put their hands in their pockets which was wrong. I'm sure that the ratings will be OK when the comp starts, as it will be the only footy being played in those months (Feb-March). I'm certainly looking forward to see how it pans out, and think the changes (Smaller ball, 16 aside etc) will benefit the spectacle of it.
