I have mixed feelings about this AFLW season. Obviously I want us to win, but it would also be pretty rough on Daisy for us to miss out on the grand final by percentage two years running and then do it when she's having Daisy Junior.

Nope because to me it means we are still reigning premiers

Good write up, only qualm is you mixed up our finals, it was the one against Geelong that we went 5-0 in the first and basically stayed at that distance, hawthorn was more of a grind with help from their inaccuracy

Real glad we picked him up. So now we need replacements for both Docherty and for Bugg, nearing the end of pre-season.

The Crows women seem to have an abundance of players who are good at getting to the ball but have absolutely no disposal skills. All they're good at is winning it and blindly bustling it forward, regardless of whether a teammate is there to receive it or not.

No, this is pretty much the only sensible thing about the whole of AFLX. If you break someoneís face in AFLX you should be serving a proper suspension.

AFLX with players being selected by team captains and at the end of a pre-season shouldnít ever be taken that seriously. Thereís a reason there arenít major injuries in the NFLís all-star game, and itís because the players know itís for fun.

Which makes it even worse if some lunatic breaks someoneís face while everyone else is having a laugh (and getting paid more than aflw players)

If you are playing AFLX so angrily that you punch someone, or even if you care so much as to put in a tackle high, hard, and/or dangerous enough to injure someone, then for sure you deserve to lose regular season games.

But to do that you would have to be so dumb, and so much inflicted with "white line fever" that the good blokes(tm) who are the captains would probably not pick you on their team. Luke Hodge notwithstanding

Our generationís Jeffrey Dahmer, Andrew Gaff, was also selected

Yeah, this was my conclusion too. Every time a new club gets added to the comp that isn't Port, the Crows' position in the comp becomes relatively stronger since our draft pool remains the same as before while the other clubs in the new club's state all become weaker..
