This was the second repair in less than a year for the tenacious defender, who dislocated her right shoulder in the championship game win over Brisbane. Anderson was never re-signed by any AFLW team after the Crows delisted her prior to the 2018 season.

Anderson‘s pink helmet made him something of a cult icon. She later said that she did this so that her blind mother could find her on the field.

According to a 2017 interview with Mamamia, Anderson said, “She hated watching me get smashed and she couldn’t actually see me play in the field.”

She would joke, “Maybe if you spray painted your helmet pink, I’d come and watch you play.” because I detested pink and all things girlie.

That’s why I joked that “Now that I’ve got one, you’ve got to come to watch me play,” and promptly bought one from a sporting goods store. Where it went from there is unclear.

Anderson has served as a medic in the Australian Defense Force in addition to her time spent playing AFLW. Immediately after Anderson’s death was announced, tributes began pouring in.

“Words cannot reflect the great pain among the AFL and AFLW community at this time,” AFL head of women’s football Nicole Livingstone said.
