I think his legs are much more pretty than the one from the Box Office.

Wear long trousers if the heat is too hot in the kitchen.

Tayla is famous now , No one would have ever known her had she not advertised.

The speed with which the Jonco Shorts ad was referenced is a little disturbing.

I have hit the nail on the head before but this one was with the big hammer.

I went to a training session around 2 months ago, and watched Tayla just mucking around near boundary line on her own. She kicked from just inside the 50 arc, about 48 metres out, on the boundary, and she slotted 5 out of 7. One hit the goal post, the other didnt make the distance.

Many players cant even kick goals from 30 metres right in front. Different in a game of course, but still,,,,,.

No one is doubting her ability. It's a pity that more than half in the league aren't up to her standard. 

The AFL should have started this project from grass roots and built it up. Instead they took the shortcut and took players from other elite sports codes. Footy is more than just kicking the ball. That's why the chick with the d*ck would have killed someone. He'd played footy before and had footy smarts. The other girls just run around more worried about bumping and crashing into each other rather than going the ball.

The other issue I have with the girls game is they should have taken the game on in their terms rather than  try and play the boys game of defence. Where do you see any other womens sport being played so defensively? 90% of women's sport is played slick and fast. If the women's AFLW had done that and played on smaller grounds for example like Carlton's ground it would have made for a faster game and a scoring frenzy.

When you look at 1930's and 1940's mens footy, I would say its the standard of the womens game today.
So maybe 70 to 80 years behind.
But evolution is evolution.

If you were in 1930, watching the women of today, you would say its unbelievably good.

Its simply going to take time.

There is no problem with the footballers kit.   

There is a problem with those good old boys who can't look at a photograph of a female athlete without posting rapey anonymous messages on the social media.   They are the problem.

I think it is the responsibility of all decent men to speak up and out about this.

Sexual assault of women - of anyone - is not OK.  
Domestic violence is not OK.  
Rapey trolls on the internet are not OK either.  
One thing feeds on the other.

We need to call them out.  It is the manly thing to do.  It is the decent thing to do.

Maybe I am just old fashioned but to me it is a question of civility, decency, respect and responsibility.  Gentlemenly values. 

These are the very things that so called 'toxic masculinity' undermines.
You've highlighted the problem in bold. Why can't we call it for what it is? Why put a label on it? Is it for your own posterity? Is it the password at the woke spa?

The 'toxic masculinity' label was coined to distract from the real issue, knowing full well that the argument would go round and round in circles before any real action was made. It's as valueless in the discussion as 'affable predator'. It's a deadset trap & I would've thought a scholar would know better.

Sermons from the mount, in front of the sponsor's message, aren't worth a pinch of you know what. We're well past the two-and-three-quarters count from mum. 

Doxxing is a legitimate punishment. Get in and find them.

It is terrible to watch and I really can't stand watching the girls play. I'd rather go and watch the local men play in my area. But in saying that if the girls want to play a men's sport let them Thumbs Up. Just don't shove it down our throats like the AFL has and don't ever compare the girl as champions like Gary Ablett and players of that ilk. The media use champion as a throw away line as much as a youngster at the Spring Carnival puts away another can.

Red Hare,   I think you might be over estimating me.  

I didn't understand a lot your post.

I don't know what a woke spa is, even after googling it. Why do they have passwords ?

I don't understand what 'for your own posterity' means.  I don't have children.

I even had to look up doxxing and now I know what it is I agree it would be a good means of countering men behaving badly on the internet... for want of a better term.

I am just not very hip.

I don't understand what the problem is with the term 'toxic masculinity' ....  but it is probably why I keep putting it in quotes. 

I was using it as shorthand for  "the constellation of socially regressive male traits that serve to foster domination, the devaluation of women, homophobia and wanton violence" (Terry Kupers).

Is that wrong ?

AFLW grand final breaks a new record with more than 53,000 attending Adelaide Oval

A new attendance record for women’s sport in Australia was broken on Sunday.

53, 034 spectators descended on Adelaide oval to watch the Adelaide Crows defeat Carlton at the AFLW grand final. The crowd numbers significantly eclipsed the previous AFLW attendance record of 41, 975 at the 2018 final.

It was the Crow’s second premiership in the short three years of AFLW, cementing their position as the competition’s powerhouse team.more....

TOLL ROAD ...   Probably watches Parliament question time to get a look at Tim Wilson.    & his mates.   We are over run with them .

   I like the mob who had near 60000 fans, flock to Adelaide.

Terrific visual stimuli.

A bit like watching chocolates that you can't eat but, Free to hair.
