SCG HONOUR FOR PAUL KELLY
PAUL KELLY, the man from Wagga Wagga has been given an honour alongside the greats of Bradman, Noble, O'Reilly, Churchill and Walters.

Yesterday, the SCG Trust named part of its real estate, the Swans players' tunnel at the SCG, the "Paul Kelly Race".

A commemorative brass plaque was unveiled on Wednesday to acknowledge Kelly's 12-year career with the Sydney FC and a permanent place in Sydney's sporting lore.

Early Tuesday afternoon I received a request from the Swans for some specific information on Paul, in which something was mentioned about a *race tomorrow* – without explanation I thought, they must have named the 3.20 at Randwick after him ...

Together with the incredibly efficient AFL master statsman COL HUTCHINSON, the Trust were delivered with information that Paul Kelly –

<> played 234 career matches (1990-2002) of which 108 were played at the SCG.
<> of his 200 career goals, 116 were kicked at the SCG.
<> he played in six AFL finals, in which he kicked five goals.
<> in his Brownlow Medal winning season of 1995, Paul played in all 22 games when the club won 8, lost 12, and finished in 12th position (of 16 clubs) on the League premiership ladder.

RAMANAUSKAS HAS LOW-GRADE CANCER
The popular Essendon player ADAM RAMANAUSKAS has been given an encouraging prognosis on being diagnosed with low-grade cancer in the neck and shoulder.

Adam had an operation last week to remove a lump, but specialists elected not to proceed..

ABC Sport reports: He will begin a six week course of radiotherapy next week but doctors are confident the cancer can be treated and Ramanauskas will be able to resume playing next season.

EAGLES AND PORT FACE DECISIONS
Port Adelaide selectors will face a tough decision today on which players will be cut from the team which defeated Carlton last Sunday. NICK STEVENS (ankle) BRETT MONTGOMERY (back) and DARRYL WAKELIN (ankle) have proved their fitness while PETER BURGOYNE is available following three weeks suspension.

The West Australian reports that at Subiaco, CHAD FLETCHER, ASHLEY McINTOSH, DREW BANFIELD, JOSH WOODEN and DARREN GLASS all took part in full training yesterday while MICHAEL GARDINER completed an arduous series of 400m sprints.

McCARTNEY JOINS BALI LAW SUIT
Former Kangaroos AFL player JASON McCARTNEY has joined a class action aimed at bringing down the financial backers of the Bali bombings last October.

ABC Sport reports: McCartney joins 70 other Australians in the international law suit, which also involves people from New Zealand, the United States, Korea and Sweden.

MIKE FITZPATRICK JOINS COMMISSION
Two-time Carlton premiership player and former chairman of the Australian Sports Commission MIKE FITZPATRICK has replaced GRAHAM SAMUEL on the AFL Commission.

Fitzpatrick will sit on the Commission for the next eight months before formally seeking election at the AFL Annual Meeting in March.

JOSH FRASER, RHYCE SHAW SIGN NEW CONTRACTS
Collingwood pair JOSH FRASER and RHYCE SHAW have re-signed with the club for a further two seasons.

Round 19 – Tribunal
Tim Fleming suspended three games

Though clearly remorseful for his offence, the season has ended abruptly for Richmond's TIM FLEMING. Last night the AFL Tribunal suspended him for three premiership matches for striking St Kilda's NICK RIEWOLDT.

Fleming in advance of the hearing, had written a letter of apology to the St Kilda star.

Fleming pleaded guilty to the video report laid by umpire MATTHEW HEAD and the tribunal in confirmation, found the incident of striking Riewoldt with a raised right elbow during the second quarter as reckless, unnecessary, late and could have seriously injured his opponent. Riewoldt was assisted from the ground but returned later and kicked three goals in the last quarter.

RICHMOND v ST KILDA
From video, TIM FLEMING cited for striking NICK RIEWOLDT (StK) during the second quarter. Fleming pleaded guilty to the charge and was suspended for three premiership matches.

MCG double-century for Sheedy

Essendon's KEVIN SHEEDY will coach his 200th match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday when the Bombers play Richmond.

A thorough check of the AFL statistical files by master statsman COL HUTCHINSON and his team of CAMERON SINCLAIR and STEPHEN WILLIAMSON has confirmed this milestone.

Overall, it will be Sheedy's 541st match as senior coach of the Essendon FC.

Speaking yesterday with STEPHEN RODGERS (another member of the worthy community of statisticians), the search is just another segment of the wonderful history being revealed by the talented team at AFL headquarters.

Sheedy has long passed the record of 179 games in which NORM SMITH led the Demons (and briefly South Melbourne) at the MCG, while the Richmond, Collingwood, Geelong and Sydney coach TOM HAFEY did so in 173 matches.

The records also reveal that the legendary JOCK McHALE was in charge of Collingwood in 328 matches at Victoria Park during his term from 1912 to 1949. Another coaching veteran DAVID PARKIN did so at Princes Park on 202 occasions.

MARC BULLEN – RISING STAR OF ROUND 19
A young man from Congupna, north of Shepparton, MARC BULLEN, is the latest nomination for the National AFL Rising Star Award of 2003.

Bullen is now reaching his potential with Essendon and has been a key contributor in the midfield in recent games against Port Adelaide (20 possessions), St Kilda (17) and Sydney (16). Last weekend's win against the Western Bulldogs was his 10th-straight match of the year when he kicked two goals from 12 kicks and took seven marks. His perseverance has seen him overcome surgeries on his ankle, cheekbone and knee, which kept him out of nearly all of season 2002.

DARWIN DEAL EXPECTED TUESDAY
The AFL are expected to sign off a deal in Darwin on Tuesday that will take League premiership matches to the Top End in 2004, spreading the national competition to every state and territory.

The Western Bulldogs and Port Adelaide are expected to play the AFL's first premiership match as a night game at Marrara Oval in the middle of the year at the end of the split round. The break which follows will enable players of both clubs to recover from the expected heat and humidity.

The West Australian reports the NT Government confirmed "money would be involved" without saying how much it would offer to stage the match.

The Tasmanian Government pays about $300,000 per game for Hawthorn and St Kilda to host home matches at York Park in Launceston.

RAMANAUSKAS DECLARES: MY LIFE IS NOT IN DANGER
The Age reports: Essendon coaches, players and officials gathered for a two-hour lunch yesterday at Docklands to speak and catch up with ADAM RAMANAUSKAS. It was the first time many of the players had seen their 22-year-old teammate since he had surgery last week for a recurrence of fibromatosis, a rare growth condition that manifested itself as a tumour in his neck.

Adam assured them his life was not in danger, however, his career remains in jeopardy.

He is expected to start a course of radiotherapy in a few weeks.

HUNGRY JACK'S STRENGTHEN DEAL WITH EAGLES
The hamburger chain Hungry Jack's, has agreed to becoming a major sponsor of West Coast. Its presence as co-major sponsor, with SGIO, will become evident when the Hungry Jack's logo appears on the playing guernsey for Saturday's match against the Cats at Geelong.

The West Australian reports: Hungry Jack's will have its logo on the club's away guernsey and home shorts, while SGIO will retain its presence on the home guernsey and the away shorts.

Hungry Jacks' have been a sponsor of the Eagles since 1991.

Record crowds, by the non-Vics ...

The ever-alert LEONARD COLQUHOUN from Invermay jogged my memory on Monday when he pointed out, the crowd of 61,868 which watched the Collingwood-Brisbane match on Saturday at the MCG was the biggest home-and-away attendance to watch the Lions play anywhere in their history of 385 games since 1987.

Heritage Round 19
Tim Fleming cited

Richmond's TIM FLEMING has been cited for striking St Kilda's NICK RIEWOLDT in Saturday night's game at Docklands Stadium.

The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday night and is the only case so far arising from the weekend's Heritage round.

GARY AYRES TO SET CLUB RECORD
The Advertiser highlights the fact that GARY AYRES will take over the mantle as the longest-serving coach of the Adelaide FC when the Crows play Collingwood on Friday night at Docklands.

Ayres will coach the Crows for the 91st time, passing the 90 matches of which GRAHAM CORNES, Adelaide's inaugural coach set between 1991 and 1994.

Adelaide's other coaches have been ROBERT SHAW (1995-96) and MALCOLM BLIGHT (1997-99).

Ayres also coached Geelong in 186 matches (1995-99).

WAFL – FIRST GOALLESS TEAM SINCE 1916
Before Saturday afternoon, East Perth were riding in second place on the WAFL ladder and on track to win their fourth consecutive premiership.

The Royals are still certain finalists, but as every club learns, down the track there is always a "Bad Day" – East Perth suffered it against age-old rivals West Perth in the match played in atrocious conditions caused by heavy rain at Arena Joondalup.

Their scoreline for the day read – 0.1, 0.5, 0.6 – 0.9-9 – to become the first club since May 13, 1916, to be goalless. West Perth won 7.13-55 to 0.9-9.

It's an old chestnut, but I love recalling what happened in VFL footy in 1970.

Carlton on a high of eight successive wins went to Victoria Park in Round 19 where they were monumentally thrashed by Collingwood by 77 points, 13.23-101 to 2.12-24, the lowest score of the season.

Seven weeks later on Saturday, September 26th, Carlton defeated Collingwood at the MCG to win the 1970 premiership.

THOMAS ROACH IS RICHMOND'S FATHER-SON CALL
The Tigers have announced it will take THOMAS ROACH, the son of Michael Roach in November's national draft under the father-son rule. The 17-year-old is 181cm and still growing. Michael played 200 games for the Tigers (1977-89) and kicked 607 goals.

Thomas has shown enough playing for Carey Grammar and the Oakleigh Chargers in the TAC Cup to convince Richmond he was worth the price of a third-round draft pick.

It just doesn't get any better than this....

What a finish to the season. And what a round we have just had!

The Heritage idea was fantastic seeing the old guernsey's. It was great to see the old Fitzroy jumper going around the MCG on Saturday afternoon against Collingwood. - Seems like old times! Melbourne recorded their 100th scoreless quarter - a milestone of an event which happened very frequently in the early history of the competition.

The emotional finish at the Docklands when Burkey with his battle scars from his 323 game career, did a lap of honour and passed his number 3 guernsey on to Xavier Clarke. The Hawks triumphed over the Swans at the SCG for the first time in 9 years. Lloyd broke many records, including the club record, the first to kick 6 in a quarter since Jeff Farmer for Melbourne against Collingwood in Round 14, 2000, the first to kick 10 since Round 6, 2001 and the highest tally since Scott Cummings in Round 4, 2000.

Did you know? That Collingwood and Fitzroy never met on the MCG on a Saturday in a home and away match. They did however meet on 16 occasions in finals....1902-SF, 1903-GF, 1904-SF, 1905-GF, 1913-SF, 1915-SF, 1916-SF, 1917-PF, 1917-GF, 1920-SF, 1922-SF, 1922-GF (the last time the Fitzroy Lions defeated the Magpies at the MCG), 1952-PF, 1960-PF, 1979-SF & 1981-SF. The two actually met in an Elimination Final in 1984 - the first Final to be played on a Sunday!

Swans' Team of the Century
Bob Skilton captain, Paul Kelly his deputy

A selection panel embraced 129 years of history of the South Melbourne-Sydney club when a squad of 25 playing members was announced at a glittering function for 2000 guests at the Sydney Convention Centre, Darling Harbour, on Friday night, August 8th.

Triple Brownlow Medallist BOB SKILTON was named captain, with the recently retired PAUL KELLY as his deputy.

In a worthy selection, the powerful ruckman-defender VIC BELCHER, the only man to have played in two premiership teams for the club, in 1909 and 1918, was named in the back pocket.

Players of all eras were considered with BOB PRATT, BILL FAUL, HERB MATTHEWS, HARRY CLARKE and LAURIE NASH named from the exciting 1930s, while JACK BISSETT who coached the Swans to the 1933 premiership, and to successive grand finals in 1934-35-36 was named Coach of the Century.

Of the 10 players who have won a record 12 Brownlow Medals for the red and white, nine were named in the team.

The team was selected from a list of 66 nominees, all of whom played at least 75 games during the history of the club since 1874.

The only current player to be named in the distinguished group is DARYN CRESSWELL.

The Swans Team of the Century has been added to our TOTC file.

Rick Quade:
Team of the Century Chairman of Selectors. Played 164 games for the Swans between 1970-1980 kicking 111 goals, Best and Fairest winner in 1976, captain 1977-1979 and coach from 1982-1984.
Bill Jacobs:
Former Sports journalist for 3AW and one of the selectors for the AFL Team of the Century. Former Manager of Australian Cricket team and Sports journalist for 3AW.

FURTHER SURGERY FOR RAMANAUSKAS
Essendon midfielder ADAM RAMANAUSKAS will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery on Thursday to remove a second tumour from his neck and shoulder area.

The Age reports: The delicate operation, performed over several hours yesterday afternoon, not only ended the premiership player's season, but raised doubts about whether he will be able to return to the field. Essendon doctor Bruce Reid conceded, in a statement released by the club yesterday, that the Bombers were unsure what the long-term ramifications were for Ramanauskas's future.

Essendon has been devastated by the news, Ramanauskas only having returned in round 12 from his first bout of surgery for a similar growth. He was slow to regain his form after his initial lay-off, which began after round three, but had returned to close to his dashing best in recent weeks, particularly good in the Dons' win over Melbourne less than a fortnight ago.

Ramanauskas has requested that his and his family's privacy be respected while he recovers from the surgery.

FOXTEL AIMS FOR ALL GAMES LIVE
Pay TV telecaster Foxtel are aiming to broadcast every home-and-away game live beyond 2006.

CAROLINE WILSON in The Age reveals: At present, the Fox Footy Channel has the rights to show three of the eight weekly games exclusively and live but cannot screen the remaining five until they have been shown by its free-to-air consortium partners Channels Ten or Nine.

And in another significant twist certain to prove more costly to football fans, The Age has learnt that the AFL has forwarded a submission to the Federal Government to give pay TV the exclusive rights in future to as many as four finals each year, including one preliminary final.

The Foxtel move has obvious parallels with Premier League soccer in Britain, where no games are shown live free-to-air ... more ...

HERITAGE ROUND CURTAIN-RAISERS
The celebration of this weekend's Heritage Round will feature two important curtain-raisers.

Before the Melbourne-Geelong match on Friday night, Scotch College and Melbourne Grammar will be featured – recognising a link dating back to 1858 when the schoolboys met in a game of football on the Yarra Park land where the MCG now stands.

On Saturday afternoon, also at the MCG, prior to the clash between Collingwood and the Brisbane Lions, a curtain-raiser will have the Fitzroy Reds from the Victorian Amateurs playing West Brunswick. The Reds still proudly wear the colours of the Fitzroy club.
