Women who love women who love footy
Retirements, Awards and Head Knocks
Fi and Sasha were feeling fresh after resting during the Bye Rounds. The Chicks caught up on all the footy news and games – Nathan Buckley retiring, Carlton rebuilding, VFLW and the classic outfits from the Big Freeze. We celebrated the footy recipients of the OAM Bec Goddard, Erin Phillips and Jan Cooper and of course Neale Daniher. To celebrate the awards we played a chat from the passionate and absolute legend, Jan Cooper.
Smashing barriers and milestone matches
Our listeners are in for a treat this week. Sasha and Bec caught up with Penny Cula-Reid coach of WilliamstownFC VFLW. Penny has literally smashed down barriers and changed pathways for girls to play footy, she is the coolest of Chicks and we were delighted to chat with her.
Bree and Sasha, also caught up with Clare Woodhouse, Captain of the Brunswick Renegades Womens Footy team on the eve of her 250th milestone game. These games don’t come around often in Women’s footy so we were thrilled to celebrate Clare and her wonderful career.
Sasha gave an update on VFLW. We reviewed Round 10 and discuss all the footy news of the week (and there was plenty to chat about)

We talked about all the highs and lows of Round and 8, the Prison Bar guernsey war between Eddie and Kochie and Hardwick sticking up for his players in a night club brawl.
It’s also LAW WEEK which believe it or not is great for inclusion in sport for trans athletes. Bec and Fi caught up with trans man Aram Hosie from the Victorian Equal Opportunity Human Rights Commission about trans and gender diverse inclusion in sport. Aram will be speaking about all this at the law week event he is speaking at. https://www.humanrights.vic.gov.au/news/victorian-law-week-17-23-may/

CTF is the only football show you need
It’s great to listen to a range of people speak about the sport we love, and not from a straight middle aged white mans perspective. The cast are knowledgeable, hilarious and very hard working! Good job CTF!
Subscribe to CTF, you won’t regret it!
This is one of two AFL commentary shows I listen to regularly, and it’s no coincidence that both of them feature women as hosts CTF offers diverse perspectives on the game and it’s cultures. Highly recommended!
Love these Chicks! They make laugh every week and are a refreshing change from mainstream media
