    I sort of go along with her sentiment, but not the way she’s putting her case here…

    Super Netball: #TeamGirls Cup and legitimising women’s sport https://www.sportingnews.com/au/netball/news/super-netball-2019-team-girls-cup-preseason-tournament-australia-netball-league-brisbane/bu1bpsslv29z1dojqllp0xz7d

    Team Girls campaign is not meaningful to me but too bad for me.  I like the point that its women who play at the top level.

    This may be the inaugural official pre-season for SSN, however concept isn’t new; used to be ANZ preseasons

    I feel shes got it round the wrong way, rather than seeing it as womens sport not being respected due to the language we use, the language we use is a product of womens sport(and women) not being respected. It’s a bit nit picky, but I agree that team girls sounds childish but that’s who they’re trying to inspire, if the campaign were aimed at women getting back into sport later in life I would hope the branding would be a bit more serious.

    Super Netball: #TeamGirls Cup and legitimising women’s sport https://www.sportingnews.com/au/netball/news/super-netball-2019-team-girls-cup-preseason-tournament-australia-netball-league-brisbane/bu1bpsslv29z1dojqllp0xz7d

    My back is up.

    I think we will forever tiptoe around what we use in terms of gender reference in Sport.

    Typically the prefix or suffix ‘W’ get thrown in the latest round of sports hitting Fox.

    Does this legitimise the sport. Can the Qld U16 boys cricket team beat the Southern Stars. Or the Matilda’s – not the cricket boys but the Qld U-16 Football boys. At what point to you vindicate legitimacy.

    Much more than the influx of quality female sport, I personally legitimise Netball. Netball is a self sustaining business. Is the AFL-W supported by the AFL? The Football W-League by Soccer Australia, The NRL-W by the NRL etc etc.

    #TeamGirls Cup. I personally love it. Never gave it a 2nd thought. Give it a name and play. That’s a key piece of marketing targeting the next generation. That’s a key part of your business – succession. It’s credible. That is a serious business! It’s a great opener to the season, to the main course – SSN.

    It also showcases Government spend on a stadium built just for Netball. Write an article on that.

    I live and breathe sport. I see Netball as a serious sport. To get a bit picky over #TeamGirls lost me a bit. It was hard for me to read this article by the writer who is a young woman who lives and breathes netball. Yet in a forum read by many, minimalise’s or name shames a quality marketing initiative.

    Lucie referenced the NRL not being able to boast sell-out crowds like Netball. So the NRL is a sport that is legitimised. But there’s a thought in my mind that things get buried under ‘boys will be boys’. They’re not advertised as boys because they’re men right?

    Netball has so much over the NRL. Their players have respect for the game and Brand. Each player knows their obligation to protect the game now, and for the next generation. You see it. You hear it when they’re interviewed.

    Here is what brand protection looks like in the NRL. Players who fought to be in partnership with the NRL and the game.

    Greg Inglis was charged with mid-range drink driving offences (reported as 0.085). He was pulled over at 2.15pm after driving for around 2 hours or so. The obvious question is what was his BAC when he started the car?

    Don’t get me started on the cost to this Australian Captain compared to the Australian Cricket Captain. That sand paper wouldn’t have killed a flea.

    Ben Barba? In 2013 he was alleged to have punched his GF Ainslie Currie in the face. In 2019, in Townsville, he is charged with punching Ainslie Currie and receives a life ban.

    We all know there are more examples. I would rather pay to go to #TeamGirls Cup then to pay to watch ‘men’ like this play serious sport.

    Lucie, Netball is a professional, serious sport. It is played by serious sports people. You’ll find that people on the Street talk Netball and take it seriously. :close_tema:

    I get the article’s point about #TeamGirls, but that hashtag isn’t aimed at me, a middle aged woman (ouch!). It seems more aimed at my 7 year old niece, who is a fanatical firebirds fan after being a member last year.  Watching her get excited about meeting the players (who are such great sporting ambassadors and very generous with their time for their fans) and excited about the upcoming season is a breath of fresh air. When I was her age, I had started playing netball but I never saw it on TV, it was never promoted in the press. “Sport”, as far as following a team, was limited to football teams and the state cricket team. It never occured to me, or probably anyone, that netball was a sport that could be followed as a “sport” and not just a fringe activity. So if #teamgirls gets the attention of the teens and pre-teens over the next couple of years and builds momentum, then it is a good starting point. After all, the fan power of teenage girls has been well known in the pop music industry for decades.

    Also we went to the new stadium last Sunday and it looks great. Even has ” new stadium smell”.

    No news regarding captaincy for a few of the clubs. You’d think Kim Green would lead the Giants and Gabi Simpson captaining the Firebirds.

    Langman for captain of SCL possibly?? Wood/Pretorius maybe. Pitman looks likely for Thunderbirds captain, Shimmin might be a chance.
