It’s actually quite a tricky topic, with many different opinions circling through my head.
Let me share them with you.
My first reaction was, well of course girls should be able to play AFL with the boys.
Then I thought, hang on, some of these AFL blokes, and we’re talking top grade here, are big and oh so very strong. And whether we girls like it or not, it’s a proven fact the mostly men are stronger than women.
So would we really like to see a chick take a hit from some big AFL dude? No, I don’t think I would actually.
Then someone on Sunrise made a very good point about women’s sport. If women were allowed to play with the guys how would that jeopardise women’s sport? Good point – I think it would actually take away from women’s sport, downgrading it even further than it already seems to be.
What do you think?
