/ Chicks Talking Footy / AFL / It’s time to talk AFL footy with the chicks


Motty, Fi and Rachael dissected all the round 6 AFL games and booing gate on Anzac Day got a good run.

Nick Edwards an Old Geelong FC committee member in charge of women’s football at the club came in to tell us about footy at the grass roots VAFA level in Melbourne. Did you know that 53 of the 77 clubs now have women’s teams? That’s awesome.

Dinner table included footy topics as usual, but we momentarily branched out into cricket this week. We discussed the James Faulkner he’s my boyfriend/he’s not my boyfriend social media storm. We included some commentary from Dr Ryan Storr; lecturer in Sport Development at Western Sydney University, co-founder and director at Proud 2 Play and amongst other things he was also the chief investigator for a funded evaluation for Cricket Australia and Cricket Victoria entitled “Exploring LGBT Inclusion in Australian Cricket”.

And as always, we found a way to make our love for footy shine through.
