Ever get the feeling some awards are a sad joke?

Best Captain:

Let's start, no offence to Daisy Pearce but she won best captain with a 4-2 record in season, and barely crawling past GWS in a final.   Best bit by far Kara Antonio not even in top three!  

MVP: 

Again the team that never lost a match - nothing, narda, not a sausage.  Not even a nomination.

Best first year player: 

Repeat - nothing. If with a straight face the people in Victoria can overlook what  Mim Storm did this season - I'm worried for the game. A first year, a 18 year old did all the ruck work, all of it. Good that she got nominated, but ridiculous not recognised for what she did. 

And  finally 

Most Courageous:

We have a winner, the wonderful Kiara Bowers. Mind you if you read this, she only go it becasue someone better was injured.

But the thing that really sticks in my craw,  any team on the east coast with the dockers record would be covered with awards. But it's the dockers, and until they wipe the floor of all opposition in a grand final - they will get no respect from the east coast. Even then, it will be a begrudging as all hell. 

6-0 in season and a handing out one hell of a hiding in a final mean absolutely nothing. I hope the Girls realise this, and use it as motivation next year. The only way you will get any respect as a team is if you beat all those smug, up themselves east coast teams.

You won’t have to worry about corona killing AFL/AFLW the clowns running it are trying their hardest,seriously if you didn’t love the game you would just let the Victorian muppets just pat themselves on the back and carry on like no one outside Victoria exists,it’s such a shame they have so much power over the competition.
guess they will be all nice wanting all the money from SA & WA over the next few years to prop up the east coast teams 🤬🤬

Absolutely agree AK.  There were some seriously dubious decisions made there.  As you said anchor, we’ve come to expect this crap.  It doesn’t make it any easier though!  We all know that the ladies would be showered in ongoing accolades over east if the team was from  there.  

I’m still trying to accept the fact that they were so cruelly robbed of a Premiership by this pandemic and that they have been so easily dismissed by the AFL and the media.  All this after the year they had, and the contribution they made to the AFLW competition making it a viable and well supported proposition in the West.    

It’s terrible 😡

Then there was the All Australian team, Just *sigh*.

I never thought I'd say this but the Eagles were robbed. Why the hell was Dana Hooker not in the all Australian team?  OK she made the 40, but for the love of the game, she made the Eagles competitive, and was instrumental in their first win.  Week in and week out she did the hard graft, bloody well.  At least the journalist Sarah Black naming Hooker no. 4 on her list of the top 30 players in the AFLW.
