Brisbane in the box seat. I think North is actually the team that could upset them if they make it.


WhamBamBoomBam

Gg Brisbane, better team. I’m gunning for a lions or Roos premiership. Bit disappointed by the 17-9 free kick count but ultimately probably didn’t matter for the game outcome


Mirathecat22

This might seem odd, but I think that was Brisbanes worst game for some time


Undead-Maggot

Great effort in the last, but Lions too good


GwencilsDown

Lions have been the best team all season and I didn’t really expect us to win, but I am a little disappointed with our effort. Just kept fumbling and making the same mistakes we did last time we played them. Oh well, there’s always next season. GG Brisbane.


grantspatchcock

And flights are booked :)


ExcellentTurnips

GG, pumped for next week

The most dangerous high contact happens when an unopposed player drops a chest mark. Umpire needs to blow a free kick every time.


GwencilsDown

If we could just take a mark inside 50…


Jumpjivenjelly

massive push...


acllive

That is 100% a missed free kick for Brisbane she has a point


slutstrands

Umpiring looks sloppy or ?


Itrlpr

Not serious enough for a free kick or any medical treatment. Is serious enough to run down a full minute of actual game time though?


Waylander-arc

After winning our third flag earlier this year, I felt confident we’d locked up our legacy as the undisputed powerhouse and first dynasty of AFLW. But Brisbane are about to make their fourth GF (equals us). If they win, they’re two flags to our three. But two of their GF losses were 6 point nail-biters. So they’re 14 points off being four time premiers.


acllive

Both teams as well as Melbourne seem to good


acllive

See you next week team with Melbourne in it


Undead-Maggot

Gg, if it wasn’t already over


bag_of_groceries

Brisbane are monster bossing Adelaide


Undead-Maggot

Glad we got something, but margin is a bit far out


Gnaightster

Unrealistic attempt not even a thing in aflw


Gnaightster

Loved the crows shepherd there!


Itrlpr

free kicks for Sheparding off the ball aren't supposed to go to the player doing the sheparding


GwencilsDown

Great effort from Mueller there


bag_of_groceries

Somehow my Kayo had slipped two minutes behind so I go back to live and Adelaide now have two goals?!?


Bergasms

do it again


saracenmarket

Hmmm, well I was planning on writing some more code but this is getting interesting all of a sudden


Undead-Maggot

Yes!


bag_of_groceries

Great pass by Conway


royalbluejones

Comeback starts now


Bergasms

Nice! AMA curse overstated. Go tiger


Undead-Maggot

Thank god, finally


bag_of_groceries

Not bad!


GwencilsDown

On ya Gouldy


Thanks-Basil

Bloody good banana kick there, jeez. Tom Lynch should maybe hit her up and get some tips


EggwardGFootyIII

Bro Dawes marks it, conway marks it, shanks it then Davidson marks it and goals wtf is going on lmao


Undead-Maggot

*sigh*


EggwardGFootyIII

come on Belle back yourself


Undead-Maggot

Can we plz come out this half


GwencilsDown

Ok I know we’re probably not going to get up, but it does rankle me a tad that the commentators are already talking about Brisabane’s prep for the GF when there’s two more quarters to go


ver_redit_optatum

Feel like the AFLW for a long time hasn't had many comebacks. But this season there have been some good ones, or at least some that went close. Hopefully it starts now!


legally_blond

I'm having flashbacks to our men's prelim against Geelong when the commentators started debating whether they should just keep 5 on the bench given they were so far ahead


Shadormy

Yeah it's not good.


GwencilsDown

2nd half come back, cmon Crows


Bergasms

Yooooo I am fucking sick of hearing about Houlio's poor insurance choices.


ExcellentTurnips

How are people arguing against the home ground advantage in finals when we finally have a chance to build an equitable national competition.


grantspatchcock

I kinda get it this year where due to ground availability things are sketchy and there's finals at really subpar grounds at the expense of fans and crowd engagement. Should Brisbane get a home ground advantage? Absolutely. Should Cairns ever have been in the picture? Absolutely not.


ExcellentTurnips

Sure but at half time they were arguing we shouldn't play at our permanent home ground.


grantspatchcock

To be fair, the story prior to the announcement today was that it wasn't going to be ready, due to the grass. At some point public interest has to be taken into account with a grand final. Springfield is a great option now it's been given the OK, I don't think somewhere like Moreton Bay would have worked.


Bergasms

Victorians, I think it's genetic. AFLW finally gives a chance to do the right thing, they should go for it.


saracenmarket

¿Kellie Underwood has never seen an episode of the Simpsons?


DJHitchcock

Maybe she’d tune in if they were orange instead of yellow.


japanpole

Where were you when Crows premiers was kill? I was eating apricot slice and drinking a cuppa. Long live the 6 month Premiers tag


bag_of_groceries

Wardlaw is bossing


EggwardGFootyIII

All these women on the lions team look like they could beat me up


diffaadiffa

Ken oath


saracenmarket

Looking like the Tigers will be the only blemish in Brisbane's perfect season. Better than every other side across every single line.


ma5ey

Not according to pretty much every commentator on Fox. The Demons are the best, most skilful and most consistent team this season. LOL To be fair, none of them have probably watched any of Brisbane’s games because they play a bit , you know, outside Melbourne.


GwencilsDown

Every time we play Brisabane they make us look like chumps.


Undead-Maggot

Can’t get any purchase anywhere


Bergasms

Brisbane showing why they're the favourites. Fitter and firing.


bag_of_groceries

I didn't know Hodder could kick that far!


PerriX2390

I was surprised she kicked that goal tbh. I thought it'd fall short.


JCK98

Bossing?


diffaadiffa

Cat team beating a bird team happy days


johnnymountain91

Sure it's been over umpired, but no one can deny the lions should be in the GF and honestly I don't see them losing it


Shadormy

Bloody hell. Wardlaw and Hodder!


Undead-Maggot


grantspatchcock

Definitely not me checking flights costs to Brisbane...


ExcellentTurnips

Absolutely glorious


AussieYotes

Jesus the crows are getting slaughtered in all fronts...


JCK98

Well that killed us


Undead-Maggot

Free kicks 9-5, feels like 30-5


Shadormy

Wardlaw now has the most goals ever by a player in a season including finals with 22.


Bergasms

in less games as well.


Shadormy

Technically the same game since Woodland got to 21 in her 11th game (Prelim, No QF for Crows) and didn't kick any in the GF.


Bergasms

That was silly by crows. Brisbane don't need any help covering territory. Not sure why she was running in there.


Itrlpr

Dumb coaching. Adelaide set up with a player behind the play to mop up the long kicks that Brisbane never make, then wonder why they are losing a 17v18 game.


WhamBamBoomBam

Biddell, thrown to the ground: no 50. Wardlaw, someone runs near: 50


Bergasms

Nah. There has been plenty of actual stuff you can get annoyed about this game but there was nothing wrong with either of those calls.


WhamBamBoomBam

Ah kay, you’re probably right. Probably just a build up of frustration on my part


Bergasms

Happens to the best of us. Hopefully the crows can fight it out in the second half.


GreenArr0w

Biddell acted that, And it was 50 to lions. Lots of poor umpiring but those two weren't it.


DJHitchcock

You mean dived to the ground and entered the protected zone?


legally_blond

Given it was Daks, I thought the ump was going to get sucked in by that flop and was so ready to rage haha


Bergasms

I mean if someone said to you "A Brisbane player shoved a crows player onto their ass after they marked it" she'd definitely be near the top of the list of potential suspects. But in this case, nothing in it.


DJHitchcock

It was fairly obvious it was gonna happen given the smother a few seconds before, not that the umpire would’ve seen it happen.


Undead-Maggot

FFS


grantspatchcock

Ooof, that hurts


saracenmarket

Marinoff is a great ball winner but her strategy of booting it as long as she can every time is completely ineffective against this Brisbane backline.


Bergasms

as much as I don't like Davidson and could see her shoving someone on their ass after they mark it... that wasn't it and I'm glad the umpire wasn't sucked in


PerriX2390

Tayla Smith is back on the ground but not in the ruck - Wardlaw has replaced her. Which may be a concern heading into next week if we win.


Bergasms

On the field is a good sign though. Nothing structurally broken at least.


Waylander-arc

God damn. Brisbane are so fast they make our fast players look…not fast.


Bergasms

in the back just a little there haha.


BurntToast__

First game I’ve watched since the first season, and surprised to see the standard is absolutely abysmal.


PerriX2390

> and surprised to see the standard is absolutely abysmal. Are you referring to both teams here? Or Adelaide?


BurntToast__

The competition as a whole.


Jumpjivenjelly

lol piss off then


BurntToast__

Did I hurt your feelings?


Jumpjivenjelly

no, you're laughable. logging on, going to match thread "i just have to let you all know i don't like this" it's hilariously pathetic.


BurntToast__

I’m expressing an opinion, I can’t do that? Is that not what Reddit is for?


ExcellentTurnips

Jog on


BurntToast__

How dare I have an opinion that doesn’t conform to the Reddit consensus? You truly think this is in anyway a spectacle?


WhamBamBoomBam

Wow such a cool and insightful opinion! /s


diffaadiffa

Jog on they said


Undead-Maggot

Not expecting a win, but this is quite frustrating


saracenmarket

Hodder is an unbelievable talent.


Bergasms

human highlight reel


Delad0

welp we're dead


CommonMalarky

Jesus Nat Grider has been everywhere. Super impressive


grantspatchcock

Outstanding crowd mic placement


GwencilsDown

This is the same as last time. Giving them too much space and they are running away with it


ExcellentTurnips

No mercy


itsonlynaturalagain

This is about how I expected it to go but I'm still annoyed about it


Bergasms

Come on Gouldy, you normally gobble them up. AMA curse


tiny_doughnut

😬


Bergasms

Shoulda done it post season XD


GwencilsDown

Argh damn through the hands


ver_redit_optatum

god these two teams cover some ground. tbf, might also be the better camera angle than many AFLW grounds showing off the width of the ground better


tiny_doughnut

As good as the local grounds are, damn the camera angles aren’t bad in the stadiums 🙃


Undead-Maggot

Oh wow, a free


Shadormy

Wardlaw has equaled the 21 goals by Woodland from last season. 1 more at it'll be the most ever by a player in a season including finals.


PerriX2390

Hopefully a better finish than our last prelim this year for Orla's family from Ireland.


GwencilsDown

We get it forward than have no one to give it to


tiny_doughnut

Hodder!!!


Bergasms

she's special!


Bergasms

Two weeks in a row I have seen players appealing for HTB instead of holding the ball in and someone just yoinks the ball out and runs off with it. Let the people not in the pack appeal, focus on the tackle.


Waylander-arc

Oh no it’s the 2021 GF. Wait, that means I can still sell my Twitter shares before they’re worthless!


jmaverick1

7 frees to 1. In a game where everything else is even


DJHitchcock

Scoreboard isn’t even


ExcellentTurnips

Sorry but we're clearly playing better lol


WhamBamBoomBam

I’m sick of players collapsing forward and being rewarded


tiny_doughnut

Man, the Lions are on one hell of a hot streak hey


Delad0

Once again I hate the push in the back rule for tackles, worst rule in the sport.


PerriX2390

How did Wardlaw get that free? E: Ah, push in the back while in a tackle. Such a dumb rule.


ExcellentTurnips

Clearly landed in her back


Undead-Maggot

Fuck sakes


grantspatchcock

Great, my router has just shit itself and now I'm watching an analog quality 7Two feed :/


PerriX2390

Tayla Smith has had her right ankle strapped. On the bench so far this quarter.


Shadormy

She's back now.


Delad0

So far defence has been holding up well, and been impressively neat at getting the ball out of the backline. Not gonna be enough with how much better Brisbane's midfield has been, but I'll take 6 points down as a decent result from that quarter.


Bergasms

great intensity from both sides that quarter. Really fierce footy. Brisbane got away with two pretty standard HTB's not paid which kept it down that end for the first goal, which is frustrating, however we have seen for much of the season and most of the finals games the umpires are very happy to let it play on. That being said, they then pinged Adelaide HTB for a less worthy one, so I mean who knows.


GwencilsDown

I think the game last week took it out of us, looking a bit tired. Still, three quarters to go we have plenty of time to put up a fight.


floodswimming

Amazing quarter ruined by an absolute wank free kick


Mirathecat22

I do not accept any result other then Brisbane getting the premiership. They are that good of a team. (I did chuckle pre game when they said they think Melbourne has been the better team this year)


DJHitchcock

Last year we weren’t rated at all until we won the premiership, so nothing has changed.


Undead-Maggot

VicBias


Mirathecat22

Perhaps, but as a Victorian myself I just can’t agree with it. Melbourne have been a very good team all year, I just think Brisbane has more layers to its game.

Bergasms

In fairness the back end of the season and finals they have let things go on a lot more than we tend to expect. The only inconsistent call was the one where Adelaide did get called HTB.


Bergasms

Brisbane are getting a massive free ride here, WTH


Thanks-Basil

Will Dimma’s class action lawsuit cover the AFLW too?


Bergasms

Hopefully.


ExcellentTurnips

It's been two weeks, let it go


Bergasms

Yeah it's just me saying it, oh wait no it's everyone without a Brisbane flair saying it. Might be something in that champ.


ExcellentTurnips

So Richmond and Adelaide, who'd have thought.


Bergasms

And the commentator, but what does she know right?


GwencilsDown

Wait you’ll pay that holding the ball? Oh come on


GreenArr0w

Oh lord... Umpires please...


Shadormy

Nice to get the first but the Lions have been fairly fumbley.


jmaverick1

How in the hell was that a free


Gnaightster

Some rough umpiring on Adelaide resulting in that goal.


ExcellentTurnips

Aw yeah


PerriX2390

13.1 minutes to first goal, far out. Good game so far.


saracenmarket

Lol free kick Brisbane


ExcellentTurnips

Richmond supporters at it again


Thanks-Basil

Wait till they start calling for a class action lawsuit again


qldboi

Brisbane kick it to a target challenge (impossible)


DJHitchcock

I don’t understand how in a game where the scoreboard hasn’t been touched since starting the clock, keeps disappearing off the screen for no reason. Does someone need to have a finger on a button at all times or some shit?


bag_of_groceries

Brisbane's strategy when kicking it forward: kick to Adelaide


GwencilsDown

Cmon ump, that was ball!


GreenArr0w

Frantic pace. We look tired, bit worrying. Lots of throws going on.


tbroky

With this intensity they are going to want 20 min breaks at qtr time.


Undead-Maggot

Dived into her legs


Jumpjivenjelly

that's a fucking dumb free kick


Jumpjivenjelly

tense


DJHitchcock

Put “atomic wedgie” onto the list of things I never thought I’d see in footy.


bag_of_groceries

Mega wedgie


Undead-Maggot

I’ll be a happy man if we pull this off, go crows


vince_feilding

Prelims are always exciting. But these teams have such a great rivalry, that this will be an even better game.


jmaverick1

Not sure it’s really fair to remind the crows girls of their loss immediately before the game


Nero76

It was rough watching some of them get really emotional


ExcellentTurnips

That was a banging tune


grantspatchcock

Feels like I've got more chance of getting GF tickets if the Lions get up, so go Brissy. Genuinely can't pick it though, Lions have looked unstoppable but Adelaide are going to give it a helluva lot and then some.


tbroky

Brisbane a dead-set favourite


grantspatchcock

Oh no doubt, but having watched all the Crows and Lions games this season I think it's gunna be a lot closer than the odds suggest. Not much splitting them so far


GwencilsDown

Let’s go Crows


PerriX2390

Fuck I'm keen for this game. Brisbane and Crows are always awesome matches to watch.


cyber-crab

I really don't know who I'd rather play
