Women who love women who love footy
Grand Final Week and shattering news from the Hawks!
It’s AFL Grand Final week and we bought Gabby in from Cats Pride (LGBTI supporter group of Geelong) to co-host alongside Fi to bring in the supporters perspective. We also caught up with Sarina from Rainbow Swans for a balanced view.
The dinner table was an emotional segment this week with the news coming out of the Hawthorn Football Club that morning. There’s been shockwaves and heartbreak right through the AFL community and Clarko and Fagan have stood down while investigations take place. Our love goes out to our First Nations brothers and sisters.
It’s footy finals time
Motty, Fi and Sash talking about what they know best – finals, footy news, trade talk and Motty debuted a fascinating new segment called See Saw. Port Adelaide‘s Tessa Doumanis jumps on for a really interesting chat about so many topics, not just football. Oh, and if anyone knows the origin of the term Lazy Susan, let us know. It will make sense when you listen to the pod.
Finals Fever, score reviews and the AFLW indigenous round
Fi, Sasha and Rachael celebrated the feast of AFL footy finals games and the fact that Melbourne is once again alive again with finals fever. At the dinner table they dissected the arc score review system that ultimately sealed the fate for the Richmond Tigers finals hopes and that mysterious bag of white powder that Wayne Carey was carrying at the casino in WA. Fi and Sasha also caught up with Sarah Hartwig from the Bulldogs AFLW team ahead of the indigenous round.
AFLW Footy news and views and a bit of AFLM too
Three of the OG chicks Bec, Fi and Motty did their best to cover all the footy topics of the week. Fi had a spiritual experience watching the AFLW and there was finally something positive for the Bombers – a win over the Hawks in AFLW round 1. Dr Kasey Symons joined us for a chat about her new research paper on AFLW fandom and culture. Footy was the winner once again.
AFLW Season 7, sledging and those Bombers
Sasha, Fi and Bobby were a little excited about the start of AFLW Season 7 starting! Fi was so excited she nearly did a 2 metre spew (you’ll have to listen to find out what that reference was) The Chicks also dissected the Zorko sledge and how the Bombers literally bombed out of the year in a spectacular way.
We also caught up with Bailey Hunt from Western Bulldogs AFLW in the lead up Round 1.
AFLW Pride Round – Felicity Gaylard from Carlton Pride
Established in 2017, Carlton Pride is the official LGBTI supporter group of the Carlton Football Club and Northern Blues.
Carlton Pride aims to provide a safe and inclusive environment for our members and allies. We caught up with Felicity Gaylard from Carlton Pride to talk about their group, what Pride Round means to their group and how they celebrate.
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
