it being free might have something to do with it...

Also it has been marketed to death, i can honestly see no one coming after the novelty wears off. The AFLW is riding on fans of clubs that are pre-existing. No one really gives a single f*** about the AFLW but many people care about there CLUB ie people care about Geelong F.C so they will go and support the club regardless it is called building a fan base. 

It is what a suggested the HAL do with the W-league the W-league should of been implemented after 30-40 years of the HAL onces clubs has strong established fan bases.  

The AFL has done a good job with the AFLW so far but i dont think it will last because the quality of football is terrible 

Funny thing about the AFLW is that they've gone for a conference system, in order to have 10 teams (this season) but only run a 7 week season.
If ever you wanted to see why conferences are a bad idea (at times people have mooted them for the A-League), take a look at this seasons AFLW.
3 weeks in, the 5th placed (i.e. bottom) team in conference A has a better record than the top team in conference B...
It will be interesting to see if it starts to balance out a bit over the course of the next 4 weeks, or stays so lopsided.

I think AFLW conferences are based on position from last year not geography. So it would make sense for one conference to have the better teams...

Didn’t realise their season was that short and didn’t know they had conferences this season. Interesting.
Do the teams play in their state leagues as well?

In that case, they would've been better just having 2 divisions.Play each team in your division home & away = 8 game season, and the final ladders actually give a decent representation of how good each team is. Play the grand final between the teams that finished top 2 teams in division #1.
That would give a season the same length as the current setup, but (IMO) a much better competition.

Add P&R so the top 2/bottom 2 swap each season, and it might be the kick in the arse that FFA need to see that P&R can work...

how will it work next year when 4 more teams are added? they will either have to start earlier or extend into the AFL season. I don't think they'll wanna start earlier because of the tennis and BBL.

I dare say the AFL themselves don't know, and will just cobble something together in November. I'd say it's a very low priority for them.

Remember, if the AFL has to make a choice between protecting/promoting their brand and running a legitimate sporting competition, they will always choose the former. That said, there's no denying, it's working for them in terms of metrics (viewers, attendances, sponsorship).

people have totally misunderstood the context here. The statue has nothing to do with Taylor Harris, but its a statement against online trolling. its an incredibly innacurate article.

Lol, you think they'd create and insert a statue in one of the most prominent places in Melbourne just to give the finger to online trolls? Wow...
The statue is a joke. Why should a moderately talented athlete get one in such a prominent position? Maybe if it were in her local neighbourhood it would make more sense. Fed square should be reserved for Aussie icons, not complete nobodies.

my understanding is that its only being displayed in fed square for the AFL finals then relocated to a new location. and its privately funded, not taxpayer funded. I don’t understand the fuss tbh.

I just think its another AFL promo opportunity. nothing more. The trolling thing is just a clever back story. Smart though.

Too bad FFA doesn't have the money or foresight, or media backing, to do something similarly attention grabbing.

Don't follow AFL at all but don't statues normally get done of dead set legends of the game years after they retire?

Bizarre.

The same NAB that is a major partner of the AFL, the AFL which is in the middle of its showpiece month. 
The whole premise that the statue is built because of sexism is crazy,  if someone is building a statue because of this reason then there would surely be far more prominent events or people that a statue could be built of.  It's not coincidence that this has an AFL player as the subject. 
Publicity stunt.
