No. #AFLW is code & culture changing. Can’t overstate its significance.
* @aflwomens players with “sense of entitlement”?
Fitting. Women deserved @AFL backed comp way before 2017.

Women must say no when the AFL refuses to play fair, as tennis players did in the 1970s
Kate O’Halloran reports on the proposed changes to AFLW. In addition to a second article accounting Susan Alberti’ response, O’Halloran compares with the response of women’s tennis in the 70’s and that we may need to go backwards in order to break new ground.
Some men might think scoreboard is more important, but what I see [in AFLW] is belief, and people feeling a sense of belonging and community.
