Women who love women who love footy
It’s a Wrap for the craziest AFL season ever!
The Chicks reviewed the crazy 2020 AFL season and Bec and Rachael (almost) admitted that it was good that it went ahead despite their cries for it to be cancelled mid-season. We talked about the dramatic events in the first quarter at the Gabba, whether a night grand final worked and how Richmond keep winning!
Mini Pod – Richmond Tigers president Peggy O’Neal
Richmond President Peggy O’Neal had a chat with us about the rise of the club over the years and how they have managed the strangeness of 2020.
Peggy is the first woman in Club history to serve as President and in June 2019, she was made an Officer of the Order of Australia and we always love talking to her about her passion for the Tigers and how she is preparing for the big dance this week.
It’s Footy Christmas, but not as we know it
It’s AFL Grand Final week and the big game between Geelong and Richmond will be held two states away from the G in Brisbane. Things are most certainly different this year but like all footy followers we will still watch the game, eat pies and celebrate. Because it’s what we do.
The Chicks Talking Footy picnic in the MCG car-park on Grand Final day isn’t going to happen, but as soon as we can we will be meeting and talking about – you guessed it – footy.
Richmond President Peggy O’Neal had a chat with us about the rise of the club over the years and how they have managed the strangeness of 2020. Super Cat Dave Beckett and our resident Tiger Breeza dissected the Grand Final, Fi and Motty are simply looking forward to 2021 when the Bombers and the Hawks will rise again.
