    What have you thought, “why is there all this fuss about something so silly?”

    But also – sometimes there was an issue that wasn’t taken seriously enough.

    I’m going through a heap of very old games – Orioles v Kestrels (thanks to Sebastian) in 1998, and something I didn’t know, Di McDonald (at this point she was the coach of the Orioles) kind of disappeared for a week before the last match of the season. She literally didn’t attend training sessions and Michelle Wilkins had to step in with no notice.

    I think that this was JUST before universal use of mobile phones. I don’t know what happened but the commentators focused on it a lot. So what was the issue?

    I like that we now talk about mental health issues and family responsibilities. It’s so much better that we don’t expect athletes and coaches to be perfect.
