Ladies Lounge / VFLW Coaching Staff 2022
An interesting appointment made to out coaching staff today: Shaun Hampson. Hope he can do the job and make our new talls winners.

Robert Heatley Stand / 2021 Review: What have we learnt about our team?
With us failing to make the finals again, and failing to to win a premiership for the 25th year, I was wondering we thought of the season. Was there anything we learnt about our future? Are we headed in the right direction> What haven't we learnt from 2021?

I am sure there will be a lot to say. I know I have a bit on my mind.

Robert Heatley Stand / Jim Park Voting: AFL Rd 23: Carlton vs GWS
I'm hoping for a better turnout of voters. The last few weeks there haven't been many, not even for our wins.
I also hope the guys can do enough to deserve a few votes. It would be a nice change from last week's debacle.

Voting is as usual: you have 15 votes to award pretty much as you will, with the following provisos:
[1] 15 votes in total, no more, no less.
[2] No more than 10 votes for any one player (even Sam Walsh)
[3] Three players at least must get a mention.
[4] A grade for the game, A+ (what I want to see) to F-.

Someone has to play well.

I have let things go a little lately. I was hoping for late voting. But that is about as likely as Teague keeping his job for 2022 at this point.  I will tidy things up soon.
As to who has won, well that is also a certainty. Sam Walsh could no more lose than we can win this year's premiership. Doesn't mean the minor places are not close. Your vote this week could make all the difference.

Robert Heatley Stand / In Game Action: AFL Rd 23: Carlton vs. GWS at Marvel
Our last game for the year is set for a 19:40 start. We are not on TV. Wish I could be there to cheer on Eddie and Levi for the last time. Probably David Teague as well, but we won't find out until Sunday about that.

We are anything but favourites. After last week we'd be lucky to get within ten goals of them.

Robert Heatley Stand / Jim Park Voting: AFL Rd 22: Carlton vs. Port Adelaidet
Not looking forward to this.

Voting is as usual: you have 15 votes to award pretty much as you will, with the following provisos:

[2] No more than 10 votes for any one player (even Sam Walsh)

Ladies Lounge / New AFLW teams
I was very disappointed the other day when the AFL decided to add 4 new teams to the competition. Granted that the game is booming at the lower levels, but these 4 new teams are going to want to competitive from day 1. That means stealing players from existing teams. The Victorian teams are going to be hurt more than any other, as 3 of the 4 new teams are Victorian.

I am glad to see Port Adelaide though: their existence will help balance out Adelaide's dominance, ridding us of the worst anomaly in the comp. But the rest ... I would have waited a few years, myself, until the Adelaide issue was behind us.

I have no idea who we may lose, but we will probably lose somebody with negligible compensation.

Robert Heatley Stand / Jim Park Voting AFL Rd 21 Carlton vs Gold Coast
I hate it when we are supposed to win well and we muck it up. Last time it was North Melbourne. I just hope it doesn't happen again!

Voting is as usual: you have 15 votes to award pretty much as you will, with the following provisos:
[1] 15 votes in total, no more, no less.
[2] No more than 10 votes for any one player (even Sam Walsh)

Robert Heatley Stand / In Game Action: AFL Rd 21: Carlton vs. Gold Coast
The game is set for 13:45 on Saturday at Marvel and probably will go ahead with no fans, like last week. Not optimal, but we have a little more idea than some of the other clubs did.

The questions;
[1] Can our injured guys come up?
[2] Is jack going to be our full time ruck again?
[3] Can we bring the same intensity as last week?

We'll find out those answers by 16:45 on Saturday.

Robert Heatley Stand / VFL 2021 This weekend?
With Lockdown #6, it is unlikely that our 2's will play this week. Unfortunately, that is exactly what we don't need. Whichever of our emergencies doesn't get a game is going to need to play. But ...
