Here is what they said
Boffin 1: These sheilas have done us proud. What do you reckon? They’ve made us look good, forward thinking, inclusive and all of that bullshit — and we’ve been able to add two months to the footy season because of them.
Boffin 2: You’re on the money there!
Boffin 1: Beauty. And think of the bonuses we’ll get because of them. Aspen, here I come!
Boffin 2: Don’t do that. They’ll think you’re a Melbourne supporter.
Boffin 1: Yeah, you’re right. Better off going to Brazil and checking out some of the local talent.
Boffin 2: Yes. Great soccer players over there. Should be some who will be okay at footy.
Boffin 1: Not that sort of talent I’m after.
Boffin 2: Yeah, I’m with you.
Sexism is alive and well and lives in Adelaide.Women playing top-level AFL just doesn’t look right says Graham Cornes http://t.co/opMVz9aod5— Vicki Watson (@ScorpioGCoast) August 22, 2015
Boffin 1: Fucking great. 14 goals. 14 fucking goals.
Boffin 2: Fuck. Are we at the A-League awards? This is footy, not soccer.
Boffin 1: Still, it makes the AFL look good. We’re years ahead of them.
Boffin 2: Did you see the grand final? Shit game.
Boffin 1: But so are half of the men’s grand finals.
Boffin 2: Yes. But at least we don’t give a standing ovation for a chest mark in the men’s league. C’mon!
Boffin 1: Yeh, they do make the guys look light years ahead of them. That’s good.
Boffin 1: Great. Son of Greg Phillips, a Collingwood star. Makes us look good. AFL players are good sires.
Boffin 2: What the fuck! Did you see that?
Boffin 1: Fucking no way. Two sheilas pashing on, on the lips, at an AFL function. This isn’t a laptop venue. Makes us look bad. Mind you, they’re not bad looking sheilas.
Boffin 2: This is bad. Real bad. Makes us look really bad. Fucking hell. This makes them look light years ahead of us.
Boffin 1: Think. We’ve got to come up with something so we don’t look like fuddy-duddies with our heads in the sand believing there are no gay male players.
Boffin 1: Great thinking. And, we’ll change the name of the best and fairest award to the Frank Thring Medal. What do you think?
Boffin 2: Good idea. And create a new award, The Oscar Wilde, for sustained, journalistic excellence.
Boffin 1: Fucking brilliant. I doubt any sheila could come up with ideas as smart as those.
