We unpack the recent debate about aggression in footy, and consider current interpretations of the 50m penalty. Finally, we talk to Collingwood AFLW star, Sabrina Frederick, about the impact the uncertainty surrounding the CBA and Season 7 is having on players and their families.

Footy done well.

Have been following since the beginning of AFLW and eagerly await each episode. Love listening to the different voices and perspectives. Nothing mainstream about this podcast. Thanks for terrific nuanced response to past players and redemption. Go Footy.

Such an enriching podcast! Love the thoughtful analysis of footy on and off the field, whilst also having many laughs along the way.
