Thread: AFLW

  1. #49
    An aggressive expansion of the AFLW announced today.

    My thoughts are that the quality will drop substantially in 2020 when we go from 10 to 14 teams but that the appeal of the competition will be largely unaffected.

    The massive expansion increases elite level investment and provides a much more robust competition. And a much bigger media and broadcast presence.

    Any dip in on field quality will be short term as the huge pipeline of young girls starts to flow through.

    So with Port entering the SANFLW next year we become the only AFL club without a senior Womens team.

    I'm still ok with that.
    Still have big reservations as to the medium to long term viability of the AFLW.
    I'd like to see where it stands after some of the wow factor dissipates.
    I hope, however, that it continues to grow and develop.
    The difference between insanity and genius is measured only in success.
