Following yesterday’s misplaced comparison between AFLW and the World Cup, AFL boss Gillon McLachlan has reportedly decided to hold off on announcing that the women’s competition will now only be held once every four years. While AFLW fans were miffed by yesterday’s World Cup comparison which attempted to justify such a short season, they are expected to be even more horrified by only getting their footy fix once every four years.

One league insider has told The Watsonia Bugle, “Yeah mate, Gill thought he’d test the water with that World Cup comment. He thought it would be a real good one. But since that blew up in his face he’s rethinking the whole once every four years concept for AFLW.”
