AFL / Re: Hannah Mouncey not eligible for the draft
« Last post by Menzel Washington on Today at 12:36:30 AM »
It depends what team you play for though- I play for the Sydney Uni team and they're *generally* speaking pretty open minded lads (albeit, I don't know anyone at the club who's gay). If you go out to the western suburbs though though it's a completely different culture.
Which division did you play in? Wondering if I played against you this year...

AFL / Re: Hannah Mouncey not eligible for the draft

As much as I'd like to se her get a go. I think it's fairly irresponsible by Hannah given she did play elite sport in mens competition, then wants to play as a woman, just seems a little selfish to me, given she knows how strong she is and having represented Australia at an Olympics as a man. Nothing against this topic other than the fact I think she is being selfish

I just wonder what some of the smaller AFLW woman would think if Hannah went to tackle them. Nothing against her size at all, I just find it a little bit irresponsible of Hannah to think she has every right to play a full contact sport against woman given she played elite sport as a man

She has every right to and I'd like to see her play, but maybe not a full contact sport like this?

Gibbs is elite Trinda, and all class. Adelaide won't regret bringing him in, especially when it can help take the attention away from Sloane. He's durable and an elite ball user. Even as he ages they can shift him to halfback and he'll be super effective there.

Adelaide still have 2 first rounders next year so giving up the 2 this year wouldn't hurt their age profile either (even before the CCameron trade).

Definitely worth it imo
Really with the three stars we had in there, Sloane and Crouch Bros', Gibbsy adds huge versatility to what was fairly one dimensional. I'm pretty happy also to have CARLton's second pick hopefully 19-22 next year :P 
      So we'll have picks 14, 18 and 20 :P  But that will hardly be enough to nab those elite SA boys next year. I think Adelaide still hopes it can force their way into that top 10 or even top 5 in 2018

Gibbsy can for sure help fill the void when needed at H/B without Smithy, hopefully Seedsman, Cheney, Kelly and Doedee can step up and keep Gibbs forward of centre more often than not!

I'm pretty excited also about what Gallucci can bring, he did look funny in that G/F sprint, so small :P  but with another pre-season for Milera and Jordan Gallucci I am hoping both can step in and cover for Charlie!

Also really looking forward to seeing J Edwards develop and I think he could almost play early in 2018, just his skinny frame might hold him back but a lot can happen to an 18yr old in 6 months with elite training! I am still miffed at Jackson not being touted as a top 20 draft pick :o  He almost looks like his old man and just as classy IMO, surely someone with those type of skills goes early? ???  Strange to me, but good for us 8)

here is an interesting one. What do you think would be the case if a Transgender person born a female wanted to play in the AFL?

I'm all for giving it a crack if they're good enough. I doubt we'll see anyone even attempt it in our lifetimes though- there's never even been an openly gay AFL player... tbh footy clubs can be a really toxic culture like that.

That being said, that doesn't really have anything to do with my views on transgender people,  I also think that women should also be allowed to be able to have a crack at mens comps in general if they're good enough. We'll never see that happen either- might have been a shot in the far future if AFLW hadn't happened :P

We've got a gay guy at our footy club and he fits in pretty well, typical bloke, young dude only about 25, but he comes out for beers with us all the time.  Prob helps his personality is pretty loud and outgoing and doesn't take life too seriously.  No ones ever caused him grief at the club, and our clubs got all sorts, everyone respects him and treats him like part of the team.

I played footy with a gay guy and he used to play it up by getting overly excited and saying "ok boys, let's hit the showers" and stuff like that. Was pretty funny!

that's pretty funny. I think you have to own it.

I've heard a flower ton of homophobic shower on the field, mostly from opposition players. That being said, I've been called a faggot in training (albeit in a semi joking manner) for wearing a yellow tshirt with a smiley face on it... wouldnt make me feel nice if I was gay, considering that's the first thing a bloke thinks of to try to put off your shot at goal.

It depends what team you play for though- I play for the Sydney Uni team and they're *generally* speaking pretty open minded lads (albeit, I don't know anyone at the club who's gay). If you go out to the western suburbs though though it's a completely different culture.

I'm going to hold because I can't justify a hit just to change keepers, and Brady -> RLC just to change my E1 isn't really doing anything so I may as well wait a week and have 2 to use next week

ASC still looking for a coach if anybody's interested - elite team, 2014 2015 2016 2017 grand finallists, 2016 premiers.

Pm me and you'll probably get the gig

Edit from Nige: http://forum.fanfooty.com.au/index.php/topic,108020.0.html Team is Boston, second team listed is the second post in that thread
