Opinion: Now or never for AFLW call on international women - part one
Authored by: Cam Homes on Thursday, September 21 2017 @ 10:56 am ACST

It's probably worth reminding everyone that the Americans that have managed to get some games in the AFL ( ie. Cox, Holmes, is there one more?) all were drawn from other sports, so it is very questionable how much that has inspired existing players or potential players to take up the game in the USA. Also it makes you wonder how the likes of Katie Klatt and others (busted a gut and spent big bucks to try to get drafted only to see players who had never played Aussie Rules be drafted and play in the inaugural AFLW competition) felt.

I think it is pretty weird that the AFL (world ruling body) seems to think that taking elite athletes from other sports is somehow promoting AFL ( the code) in other parts of the world and inspiring other nations and nationalities to take up the game. DUH !!!!

Brett, you seem even more pessimistic than me about this, is this really a case of the AFL totally missing the bus/train/bandwagon.

DO we at least have a smidgen of hope??????
