In a serious blow to the viability of the AFLW, Twitter user @Jase089, announced he’s ‘not interested in it’ and could not be ‘made to watch it by the AFL justice warriors’.
AFLW CEO Nicole Livingstone said the development was significant, as the only reason the league had been put in place was to please @Jase089.
“Obviously, a lot of people poured their hearts and souls into trying to bring this to life, but we need to be accountable and @Jase089’s views are highly valued in the community, as shown by his 14 followers.”
“Without @Jase089 watching, I’m not sure if our ratings are sustainable.”
Perhaps most devastating was @Jase089 groundbreaking observation that AFLW’s skill level wasn’t instantly the same as the AFL’s.
“He’s seen right through us there,” said Livingstone, “we’d hoped no one had noticed.”
“Obviously, if it’s not exactly the same as the men’s version of the game, we should slink back to the fringes where we’ve always been kept and not bother anyone. Sorry."
When several Twitter users attempted to point out to @Jase089 that watching AFLW wasn’t mandatory, @Jase089 accused them of ‘reverse sexism’, effectively shutting down their criticism with the power of his argument.
Titus will be performing at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Sydney Comedy Festival.
