Title: AFLW 2020 - Elimination final - Carlton vs Brisbane - Sunday 1:10pm
Post by: kruddler on March 19, 2020, 10:57:03 AM
So new finals system is out and we are now playing Brisbane on Sunday 1:10pm.

All 3 other games are on Saturday.

We have an unchanged lineup over the past few weeks but now we have the option of bringing in Van Dyke who has recovered from her ankle.

Hopefully Harrington pulls up ok.

I doubt any other changes are likely.

I guess some team has to play on the Sunday, but I do feel we are being disadvantaged in playing last. Nichevo. Hopefully we can win and rub it in their faces.

It does seem a bit weird, especially since we were initially scheduled to play on Saturday against West Coast.
Other teams were going to play on Sunday initially.

Dockers vs suns, both played on Sunday last week....now its a 6 day break each.
Giants have 6
Us vs Lions, both have 8 days break. Huh?

Q1 all Lions.

Like our boys, our (only) goal coming from a free.

Hope they can wrestle back the momentum. Lions not giving us a mm.

Go Blues

Convincing win by the girls after a frustrating first quarter. 

Solid effort by everyone and it will be hard to pick three players for votes.

Hopefully Maddy’s ankle will come up for next week.

It’s worth watching the girls just to see them sing the club song.  I know that the blokes haven’t had too much practice but some of the passion and enthusiasm shown by the girls wouldn’t go astray .

Really feel sorry for the girls. All that effort, made it through to a prelim and the season gets cancelled. Couldn't be prouder though with how the girls have gone about it this year. More enjoyable to watch than the men at the moment

Watched the game with my 5yo boy.

Its the first game that he has ever taken a genuine interest in.

I taught him about how they do the score.
I taught him about how the quarters work.
I taught him about "#4" and how she hurt her ankle....and he was able to pick her out from a crowd.
I taught him about Georgia Gee and how she kicked 3 goals. She is now the first ever player he can recognise by name (male or female).
I taught him about finals and how special they are.
I taught him about how we are matched up against the Kangaroos, and if we win that we are into the Grand Final.

He cheered every goal, and even got excited for every behind and was looking forward to next week match.


.....and now its all for nothing.  :'(

He deserves heaps of credit, I think the next draft / trade period should also be postponed suspended.

I felt from his media demeanour he had the inkling this was on the cards, really off-field things had to go extraordinary well for this not to happen.

Have you taught your little bloke about replays Kruddler?

If not, there's some super AFLW games on the record.
Might keep the momentum up for a while.

Welcome to the passionate Bluebaggers club little fella 👊

I'll have to get him to watch some other stuff soon.

I noticed on Kayo that they had the 2008(?) State of origin/all star game which fev won the medal on. Might try that one and point out how its the best of the best playing....then show him some other Fev and Eddie games and let him see how good they were and how much fun they have playing for Carlton. Then slide in some AFLW games as well.

From the votes thread:

Does anyone still doubt what AFLW can deliver, in a year or so all games will be at that intensity and standard!

The intensity of the first 5-10 minutes was frenetic.  I didn’t think that they could keep it up ... but the intensity hardly dropped off at all.

The number of dropped marks and fumbles was understandably higher than usual (but still less than in previous seasons) but players generally hit their targets.  Our ball use was particularly creative and especially when we got it to the outside.

Ive taken him to games, since he was 10 months. But he is usually not wanting to be there.

He is like me, stubborn, if he doesn't want to learn something he won't.

So i've held back, and now he has decided that he wants to learn.....finally!

Anyway, bravo to Harf, his coaching team, the club and above all... the gals. To a person, you're bloody champs... and premiers in our eyes.

Indeed!

Harf’s coaching was brilliant and perfectly matched the team.  A coach with the emotional intelligence to pull that off should enjoy success at any level.

We were able to absorb whatever the opposition threw at us, tweak the game plan to gain the ascendency, then power away, thanks to good coaching, shrewd list management and excellent player development.

You won't get any disagreement from me, the sure sign of a coaching hack is the bloke who has a formula! Sure the formula might be successful once or twice in a long career, but generally the key to their tenure is the ability to sell the formula to clubs and players, not how good it is!

That is why some successful coaches, at least in my opinion, seem to be way way way ahead of others!

Has there been any news about the Tayla Harris report?

I thought that Harris actually stopped her ‘sling’ and it was the other Brisbane player’s leg that did the damage - mild as it was.  There were two other sling tackles that were more forceful and dangerous.

Agree. I can only assume that the umpire was blindsided and couldn't see that the opponents head actually hit a team mates leg.

Oh definitely. But thats why the AFL has tried to take 'reports' out of the field umpires hands and do it all in the MRP.

It was a report....but also a free kick. Should have even been a free kick or was it a free kick because it was a report?

It was wrong in any event
Title: Re: AFLW 2020 - Elimination final - Carlton vs Brisbane - Sunday 1:10pm
Post by: DJC on March 24, 2020, 10:07:17 PM
I think the free was there; the tackle continued well after the ball had gone, but it shouldn’t have been a free for a dangerous tackle as was paid.

Tayla certainly threw her weight around, and with good effect.  She seems to have an instinctive awareness of when to tackle and when to bump, and she executes both very well.

Perhaps there’s a role for as tackling/bumping/boxing coach for our blokes 🙂

Mrs DJC doesn’t often watch the footy but we do watch the AFLW together.

Georgia is her favourite player and she is amazed at the great strength packed into Georgia’s minute frame.  I had my doubts about whether Georgia’s small stature would be up to the rigours of AFLW but she has certainly proved me wrong!
