AFLW Round 3: Carlton vs Brisbane at Ikon
« on: February 10, 2018, 03:25:34 PM »
Next week the Blue Belles, Blue Sapphires, our triumphant girls, will face Brisbane next Saturday night (17th Feb) at Ikon Park. Entry is free - I believe that games at the new Optus Stadium in Perth are NOT - and the guys will be there before the game.
This game is being broadcast on TV even with Channel 7's Olympic coverage.
I am hoping to go: it will depend on my 15 year old daughter who is doing some part time work. If she is up to it, then we will be there. If not, then we watch it on TV. How slack! Not the performance of a true fanatic at all!

Given Brisbane's recent form, I do not expect us to pound them. We will be missing Bri Davey for certain (and probably for the season): we played particularly poorly last year when Davey was injured. Whether Tayla Harris gets up for the game is also questionable.
Unfortunately, AFLW does not yet have the depth for us to cover someone as good as Bri Davey. It is like trying to cover for an injured Judd: not as task that can be done easily. Harris may be a little easier to cover, as we do have some taller girls, but considering some of the marks she has been taking lately it is not a task I would feel comfortable in us being able to manage.
Live Long and Prosper!

Still no Arnell or Keryk. That's disappointing.

How old is Keryk?

I know arnell is the wrong side of 30. Just wondering if that has anything to do with it.

I need to make a correction on my original comments about AFLW.

I originally compared it to under 14s....well after watching this first quarter I was clearly wrong.

Itís much closer to under 12s.

Sorry but I tried to give it another go but just canít watch it, even if they are wearing carlton guernseys.

AFLX is amazing compared to this rubbish.

You're  obviously watching it every week so it can't be too bad. You have a remote control.

Oh itís bad mate. Itís very bad. Come on, surely you canít argue about the lack of skill.

I canít help but laugh at times watching this, as they are non existent. Simple chest marks dropped every second, and one pass in 10 hits an opponent. No wonder they canít score and the afl will never be able to charge entry for this rubbish.

Over a quarter and a half and 2 points combined scored.  ::)

And your right I found the remote and just used it  ;D

Giorgia Gee off for the remainder of the game.

Not the best half I've seen. 28 i50's for a total of 10 pts. We seem to be on the back foot and unable to get any run. Our defensive pressure is unquestionable but we need to get our hands on the ball.

Go Blues

The female tv commentator is very poor just to detract further  :-\
