More physical and moving at higher speeds?

Mate, I think 99% of our male GL population would get absolutely hammered by any of those professional women tackling you, be it at 20 km/h or 0 km/h.

Have you seen their legs?!

That's like saying women UFC fighters don't hit as hard as the men. In pure energy wise you might be right, but pretty much anyone is going down after a direct hit by any pro.

I wish men's footy would take notice


To be fair, though, mens' football is more physical and tackles occur while players are moving at relatively higher speeds, thus increasing the likelihood of serious injuries. Don't get me wrong, it's admirable that the women don't go down as easily. I don't doubt that they generally have more pride than male players, in that respect, but I daresay they are at a lower risk of getting rugby tackled by the Akinfenwas and De Jongs, and I don't believe diving is exclusively about winning cheap set pieces Laughing


Some truth there- but we all have been watching men's footy enough to know that many times these players are barely getting nicked and they go down.

In women's football its much less common from my experience.
