Watch­ing women in daggy footy shorts run around dur­ing the in­au­gu­ral sea­son of the AFL women’s league re­quired very lit­tle get­ting used to. In just a few months it’s be­come so nor­mal that I’m em­bar­rassed to ex­plain to my daugh­ters, aged 8 and 11, why the league hasn’t been around since, like, for­ever.
