Third coach sacked
Rodney Eade and Bulldogs split

The Western Bulldogs announced on Wednesday that coach Rodney Eade will part ways with the club at the end of the season.

ABC Sport reported Eade confirmed his contract would not be renewed at the end of the 2011 season at a Whitten Oval media conference attended by club president David Smorgon and chief executive Simon Garlick.

He becomes the third AFL coach to be sacked in 2011, joining Adelaide's Neil Craig and Melbourne's Dean Bailey.

After reaching the preliminary final in each of the previous three seasons, the 12th-placed Bulldogs will miss out on the September action for the first time since 2007.

In addition to his seven years with the Bulldogs, Eade also coached Sydney for six-and-a-half seasons, highlighted by leading the Swans into the 1996 grand final, which they lost to North Melbourne.

Eade, 53, would likely be considered to fill the head coaching vacancies at Adelaide or Melbourne next year.

Widely seen as a career coach, Eade said he had yet to decide on his preferred next move.

His coaching record of 314 matches (1996-2002 and 2005-11) brings a success-rate of 54.45 per cent, 169 wins, 141 losses and 4 draws.
__________

Our regular contributor John Novak notes that Eade in round 22 is scheduled this weekend to equal John Northey's coaching record of 315 matches without a premiership.

Northey coached four clubs, Sydney 1985, Melbourne 1986-92, Richmond 1993-95 and Brisbane 1996-98 for a totals of 157 wins, 154 losses and 4 draws.

As Greg Denham notes in his piece today in The Australian, Collingwood legend Bob Rose coached the Magpies and Footscray in 282 matches without capturing a premiership – the Pies under him were runners-up in 1964, 1966 and 1970.



Lyon hits back at fans who baited Stephen Milne
St Kilda coach Ross Lyon on Wednesday hit back at Collingwood supporters who baited Stephen Milne during last Friday night's AFL clash.

Yahoo! Sport reports a section of the crowd chanted "rapist" at Milne, in reference to a police investigation in 2004 where he was cleared of allegations made against him.

"He's fine ... there's a media bubble forming around what happened last week," Lyon said.

"As a representative of St Kilda, I will talk about what Stephen Milne means to us – he's an incredibly consistent performer, really valued around the club, he's a life blood of the club.

"He contributes not only on but off the field in a lot of endeavours for the club, he's a wonderful family man and we value him incredibly highly.

"It says more about the people who are levelling those sorts of chants than it does about Stephen."

Lyon added the club was supporting Milne and would not be distracted by the issue.

Swans rally to help orphans of couple killed
The Sydney Swans have rallied to support the young children of two supporters who were killed in a car accident in Melbourne last weekend.

Karen and Fernando Marino had travelled from their home near Wollongong to Melbourne together to watch the Swans play Richmond at the MCG on Sunday.

It was a belated birthday treat for Mrs Marino.

AFL.com.au reported they were hit by a car as they crossed the road in Carlton on Saturday night.

Fernando, 32, died shortly after the accident, and Karen, 29, died in hospital on Tuesday night.

"We feel deeply for the family and friends of Karen and Fernando. As a club we'll endeavour to do what we can to support the family and their two young children," Swans chief executive Andrew Ireland said on Wednesday.

A bank account has been set up to accept donations for the children, aged two and five, and numerous fundraising activities have been organised.

Staff of the Sydney Swans will donate to the fund, with supporters encouraged to do the same:

BSB: 641800

Correction to a correction
The attendance to the Melbourne-West Coast match in round 21 played last Sunday at Docklands has been adjusted again. The *official* attendance for this match is 15,740, not 15,709, nor 15,739.

The progressive total for the premiership season is now: 5,729,111.

MRP – Round 21
Five players take early guilty pleas

Geelong forward Cameron Mooney accepted a one-match suspension for a high hit on Adelaide's Graham Johncock, putting his place in the Cats' finals campaign in doubt.

ABC Sport reports: With Geelong having the bye in round 22, Mooney will miss the penultimate home-and-away round clash against Sydney on August 27.

He then faces a tough task to force his way back into the Cats' best 22 as they push for a third premiership cup in five years.

Mooney was reported in Sunday's clash at Football Park which the second-placed Cats won by 11 points.

Because of his poor disciplinary record, the 31-year-old Mooney could not get the penalty reduced with an early guilty plea.

Adelaide defender Shaun McKernan and Richmond forward Tyrone Vickery accepted reprimands for respective tripping and rough conduct charges.

St Kilda midfielder Nick Dal Santo and Port Adelaide first-gamer Tom Jonas accepted $900 fines for umpire contact.

Code of conduct breach
Patrick McGinnity fined and suspended
West Coast defender Patrick McGinnity will miss the Eagles' key clash with Essendon after he was suspended for allegedly vilifying Demons forward Ricky Petterd's mother.

ABC Sport reported the incident occurred at the start of the half-time break in Sunday's match at Docklands which the Eagles won by eight goals.

McGinnity was heard to have made derogatory remarks about Petterd's mother, which the Demons forward quickly relayed to an umpire.

The 22-year-old Eagle was charged under the AFL's code of conduct regarding respect to women and could face suspension and a fine.

McGinnity also copped a $2,500 fine for breaching the AFL's respect and responsibility policies.

He will also apologise to Petterd for the remark.

"I deeply regret the words I used in a verbal altercation on Sunday," McGinnity said in a club statement on Tuesday.

The West Australian reported the AFL chief executive Andrew Demetriou when speaking at Parliament House in Perth where he was meeting WA football officials and State Government ministers about the planned new stadium at Burswood, said McGinnity was clearly in the wrong.

"We take these issues very, very seriously, there is absolutely no place for that sort of language or commentary on the football field, let alone out in the community," he said.

"There’s going to be sledging but you’ve got to be very, very careful about which areas you delve."

Demetriou congratulated Petterd for coming forward with the complaint and said he didn’t feel he would become a target for his decision.

Port dumps Kane Cornes
Ashley Porter
of The Age details the turmoil at beleaguered Port Adelaide deepened last night with the revelation that three-time – and reigning – best and fairest Kane Cornes has been told he will not be required at the end of the season.
     There are also strong moves by past players and businessmen to oust club president Brett Duncanson, replacing him with club great and 1975 Magarey medallist Peter Woite.
     The Cornes fallout – in the wake of Port's record losses to Collingwood (138 points) and Hawthorn (165) – will cause further unrest among the club's supporters.
     The Age understands the 28-year-old was told after the loss to Collingwood that he would not play any part at the club next year, despite having two years to run on his contract. That was just one of a string of bruising meetings between the club's leadership and senior players preceding Saturday's abysmal showing against Hawthorn – more ...

Demetriou: "no worries, Port is here to stay"
AFL chief executive Andrew Demetriou has told Port Adelaide fans not to worry about the state of their struggling club, declaring the Power have a bright future despite their dire financial position and woeful form.

ABC Sport reports Port Adelaide has become the AFL's basketcase this year, with the club's multi-million dollar debts coinciding with its worst run of on-field performances since entering the competition in 1997.

However, Demetriou was confident the league's multi-million dollar assistance package and Port Adelaide's move to the more profitable Adelaide Oval in 2014 would ensure the long-term survival of the club.

"The Port Adelaide Football Club has challenges ahead of it but (supporters) shouldn't worry about ... their financial position, because the AFL and the SANFL have put together a financial package that secures Port Adelaide's future," Demetriou said in Perth on Tuesday.

Malthouse and McGuire at odds on crowd issue
Collingwood's two most powerful figures remain opposed on the importance of crowd behaviour.

Sam Edmund in Melbourne's Herald Sun reports Magpies president Eddie McGuire said he was determined to launch, by this weekend, an advertising blitz featuring Pies players in a bid to stamp out abusive and offensive fan behaviour.

But club coach Mick Malthouse on Tuesday dismissed the problem.

Malthouse questioned the importance of crowd behaviour as an issue, saying abuse of players was widespread and little could be done about it.

Malthouse's view flies in the face of the planned Collingwood initiative that McGuire said would stand as club policy – more ...

Round 21 –
Luke Dahlhaus
(Western Bulldogs)
                  

Western Bulldogs' Luke Dahlhaus has been named the round 21 AFL Rising Star nominee after a sterling performance in his side's 49-point loss to Essendon at Docklands Stadium.

Yahoo! Sport reported: The rookie-listed small forward played his best match for the Bulldogs on Saturday night, tallying 19 disposals and kicking two goals.

The 18-year-old played a major role in a stirring third-quarter fightback by the Bulldogs and has now played nine consecutive AFL games since making his debut in round 12.

Bulldogs coach Rodney Eade said the livewire forward, who averages 13.9 disposals and 4.2 tackles per game, had been a revelation since making his debut.

"Luke has added a lot of life, enthusiasm and talent to our side it's a just reward for the high quality performances he has put in over the past nine games," said Eade.

Dahlhaus was overlooked in the 2010 draft but was signed by an AFL club two weeks later when the `Dogs claimed the Geelong Falcons' player with pick No.22 in the rookie draft.

Match Review Panel – Round 21
Mooney, McKernan, Vickery booked
Tarrant charge dismissed


Geelong forward Cameron Mooney has been handed a one-match ban, but Collingwood's Chris Tarrant was cleared of wrong-doing by the Match Review Panel on Monday.

ABC Sport reports Tribunal regular Mooney can accept a one-game suspension for his high hit on Adelaide's Graham Johncock in the first quarter of their match at Football Park on Sunday.

His poor disciplinary record means no reduction for an early guilty plea – Mooney faces his 18th match suspension from 16 charges.

But Tarrant's match report for what was regarded as a fair bump on St Kilda's Justin Koschitzke was dismissed.

Adelaide defender Shaun McKernan can accept a reprimand for tripping Geelong's Steve Johnson, as can Richmond forward Tyrone Vickery for rough conduct against Sydney's Craig Bird.

But Geelong's Joel Selwood, Port Adelaide's Matt Thomas and Melbourne's Clint Bartram were all cleared.

St Kilda midfielder Nick Dal Santo and Port Adelaide first-gamer Tom Jonas face $900 fines for contact with an umpire.

All players charged have until Tuesday lunchtime to decide whether to fight their penalties at the Tribunal.

Demetriou hints at AFL TV
Jesse Hogan
in The Age reports Andrew Demetriou has floated the possibility the AFL's latest television rights deal, which will provide $1.12 billion over the next five years, could be its last.

The league's chief executive has provocatively suggested that instead of allowing television networks to broadcast matches, and then keep the resulting advertising and subscription proceeds, the AFL could stream matches directly to customers of the national broadband network.

The plan would be in keeping with an AFL strategy to increase its profit margins, which has included creating an in-house media division to offset the profit-diminishing influence of middlemen – more ...



Primus denies Port has sacked Kane Cornes
Port Adelaide coach Matthew Primus has taken the blame for his AFL club's worst season, but denied sacking triple best and fairest Kane Cornes.

Primus also quashed speculation that selection was being influenced by club hierarchy.

Primus said the heat was on many people at the Power, reeling from crushing losses in the past two weeks including their heaviest defeat, a 165-point thrashing by Hawthorn on Saturday.

That followed the club's previous heaviest loss just a week prior, a 138-point thrashing by Collingwood.

But Primus, with just two wins and headed for Port's first wooden spoon, scotched a report on The Age website that he had sacked Kane Cornes, the 28-year-old reigning club best and fairest,

"Kane has a contract here and as of the moment he is a required player," Primus told Adelaide radio station 5AA on Monday.

"He certainly hasn't been sacked or told he has been traded."

Primus accepted the blame for Port's woeful season, saying "the buck stops with me" but dismissed rumours that president Brett Duncanson and other board members were dictating selection – more ...

Dale Morris breaks tibia and fibula in right leg
The Western Bulldogs are confident defender Dale Morris' badly broken leg won't stop him from getting a solid 2012 AFL pre-season.

Guy Hand for Yahoo! Sport reports Morris broke both the tibia and fibula in his lower right leg when he fell awkwardly in a fourth quarter marking contest in his side's 49-point loss to Essendon at Docklands on Saturday night.

Doctors confirmed on Sunday that Morris had broken both bones and his season was over.

But they are confident the injuries are not at the most serious end of the scale.

"Both bones were able to be manipulated in hospital under anaesthetic without the need for surgery," the Bulldogs said in a statement.

"The club expects Morris to participate in the majority of pre-season training as he will be up and running within 10 to 12 weeks."

Carlton's Bret Thornton cleared of face fracture
Carlton defender Brett Thornton is expected to be fit for Friday night's blockbuster clash with Hawthorn after scans cleared him of any serious damage to his face.

ABC Sport reports Thornton was taken to a Perth hospital on Saturday after copping an accidental fist from Garrick Ibbotson during Carlton's 30-point win over Fremantle.

A golf ball-sized lump immediately formed under Thornton's left eye after the fourth-quarter marking contest, but scans showed no fracture and the 27-year-old flew home to Melbourne with his team-mates on Saturday night.

It is believed the dramatic swelling, which has since subsided, was caused because Ibbotson's fist struck a blood vessel.

Collingwood captain Nick Maxwell could miss the start of the AFL finals series, and has been ruled out for the rest of the home and away season with a thumb fracture of his right hand.

ABC Sport notes scans have revealed the courageous defender injured the thumb during the final quarter of Friday night's win over St Kilda, which kept the Magpies firmly on track for the minor premiership.

Collingwood said in a statement on Saturday its skipper would be sidelined for three to four weeks, which means there is doubt over whether he will return for a qualifying final on the weekend of September 9-11.

Round 21
Collingwood snap St Kilda's run of six wins

The season in scores and results Stats Update 2011

Collingwood have sent another challenger packing, ending sixth-placed St Kilda's winning streak with a workmanlike 19-point victory at Docklands on Friday night when 46,505 attended under the closed roof to the outside chill of 10 degrees.

After being tested in a pulsating first half, the Magpies slowly ground down the Saints in the second to post their 12th consecutive win this season.

The win keeps the Magpies top of the ladder and plunges the Saints back into a fight to make the top eight at season's end.

Collingwood's Leon Davis had a field day off half-back with 36 possessions, while midfielder Dane Swan was influential with 34 touches and two goals.

Leigh Montagna booted three goals for the Saints and had 24 touches.

Guy Hand for Yahoo! Sport noted the Magpies led by 19 points at quarter-time, booting four goals in a row to end the term and looking likely to make short work of the team they beat in last year's grand final.

But the Saints twice closed to within a point of the premiers during a solid second term, and trailed by just 13 points at the long break. The Magpies muscled the Saints out of business in the third term, pushing out to a 21-point lead.

By the time Swan booted his second after the Magpies had smothered the Saints early in the final term, the lead was out to 28 points and there was no way back for St Kilda.

The Saints got some consolation with forward Stephen Milne breaking the record for most goals kicked at Docklands, booting his 300th at the venue late in the final term.

Collingwood defender Chris Tarrant was reported for a bump on St Kilda's Justin Koschitzke just before half-time. But TV replays suggest he has little to worry about when the match review panel looks at the incident – which appeared umpire overkill.

Shorter matches a chance next year

AFL CEO Andrew Demetriou has confirmed the length of games could be shortened as early as next year, with the League to look closely at reducing minutes played over the off-season.

The issue again came to light this week with Collingwood coach Mick Malthouse claiming long games and the structure of the draw were to blame for recent blowout results.

Jennifer Witham reported on AFL.com.au, Demetriou said on Friday it was on the agenda for the Laws of the Game committee over the upcoming off-season.

"The issue of the length of the game with the stoppages and time ons, it has become a little bit too long … 130 minutes for a game.

On Thursday, Malthouse suggested there was interference from corporates and administration.

Demetriou on Friday morning told radio station 3AW the draw would always be compromised as long as games such as Anzac Day, Queen's Birthday, state derbies and blockbusters between Victoria's big clubs were pencilled in first each year.

Demetriou said factors such as government requests, the scheduling of other sporting events in other states, restrictions on the weekends Tasmania could host games, agreements with venues, not playing on Good Friday and requests from the broadcasters also impacted the draw.

He also said the League was well ensconced in the assembling of the 2012 fixture, having collected input from all the clubs and stakeholders.

"I know [AFL broadcasting, legal and business affairs manager] Simon Lethlean has received all the requests.

"It will be a complex draw next year. There will be 18 teams, there will be nine games in a round, so I know he's looking forward to the challenge" – more ...

Andrew Newbold to succeed Kennett
The Hawthorn board have anointed vice-president Andrew Newbold to succeed Jeff Kennett as president at the AFL club.

The appointment will be subject to a members' vote that will be finalised at the club's annual general meeting.

Kennett, after being president since 2006 will stand down in December.

Newbold, a lawyer and businessman, joined the Hawks' board in 2003.

The club said in a statement that the board recommendation was unanimous.

Tickets to this year's finals series have risen in price by five per cent across the four weeks, however the League has dropped the cost of admission to the semi-finals to ensure the majority of matches are accessible by all fans.

AFL.com.au announced Friday that prices are $36 for standard finals tickets in weeks one and two in New South Wales, $44.50 for a standard ticket in Victoria, and $46.50 for a final in Perth.

Members of the competing clubs will retain the exclusive right to buy tickets to any finals game in weeks one to three on the Monday before the game.

The general public will now be able to buy finals tickets in weeks one to three from midday at the Tuesday, which is earlier than the 9am Wednesday start time used in previous years.

The cost of tickets to the Grand Final, to be played on October 1, is slightly higher than 2010, with prices ranging from $150 for standing room and restricted view ($142.50 in 2010), $170 for standard ($161 in 2010), $254 for prime ($235 in 2010) and $295 for premium ($270 in 2010).


 

Essendon have confirmed that defender Michael Hibberd has been charged with assault following an incident in Mornington last month.
According to the club's website, Hibberd has been officially charged after being involved in an altercation with a woman and another man that happened in Main St, Mornington early on July 31st.
Police have indicated that a man was allegedly hit in the face during the incident and later needed hospital treatment.
As a result of the initial police investigation, the Bombers suspended Hibberd indefinitely on August 3 – Sportal

Round 21 – selected teams
Dockers name Sandilands
Melbourne recall Sylvia and regain Jamar
Port make eight changes


Fremantle at selection on Thursday night have chosen reward over risk, bringing back ruckman Aaron Sandilands from injury in a season-defining gamble.

Sandilands has played just one match in the past 10 weeks because of a serious toe injury.

But with the Dockers' season on the line the giant ruckman will be risked in Saturday's must-win match against Carlton in Perth.

Sandilands' delicate injury affects his right foot – the one he usually leaps off – and his match fitness certainly is in question.

Yahoo! Sport reports Gold Coast have included skipper Gary Ablett for their derby against Brisbane at the Gabba on Saturday night after he missed their big loss to Geelong last weekend with a hamstring injury.

Melbourne have recalled forward Colin Sylvia and regained ruckman Mark Jamar to combat West Coast's Dean Cox at Docklands on Sunday.

Port Adelaide have predictably rung the changes after their feeble performance against Collingwood last weekend, with eight new faces to take on Hawthorn on Saturday.

Forward Brett Ebert is among five dropped for the Power, with Hamish Hartlett (shoulder) and Jasper Pittard (hamstring) out injured and veteran Chad Cornes retiring.

The Hawks welcome back Chance Bateman, Cameron Bruce and Ryan Schoenmakers for Rick Ladson and Michael Osborne (both soreness) and Kyle Cheney.

Collingwood's embarrassment of riches grew with the inclusion of defender Harry O'Brien after knee soreness and midfielder Sharrod Wellingham to play St Kilda at Docklands tonight.

Simon Buckley and Cameron Wood have been omitted.

Other key round 21 inclusions are Geelong stars Corey Enright and Brad Ottens to play Adelaide, and Western Bulldogs midfielder Shaun Higgins returning from injury to take on Essendon.

But as expected the Cats have lost key defender Matthew Scarlett for the Adelaide clash with a knee injury.

Richmond received better-than-expected news on midfielder Daniel Jackson, who has been named in the Tigers' side to play Sydney at the MCG on Sunday – just a week after limping off with a knee injury after a heavy clash with West Coast's Matt Rosa.

Matt White, Jayden Post, Jake Batchelor and Jeromey Webberley have been added to the extended 25-man squad.

Worth attention ...
Hospital to send Stynes home
Scott Spits
in The Age reports Melbourne president Jim Stynes is recovering from his latest surgery, during which doctors decided against removing a tumour from his stomach.

Surgeons will now consider other treatment options for the former AFL footballer and 1991 Brownlow Medallist.

Stynes underwent exploratory surgery at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre yesterday and the Demons said he was expected to leave hospital within the next seven days.

"Jim is now recovering well from the surgery and is expected to leave hospital sometime in the next week. Doctors determined the best course of action was not to remove the tumour and to consider other treatment options," Melbourne said in a statement.

Stynes's battle with cancer was again thrust into the public spotlight last week when he fronted a media conference to announce the club had decided to sack its coach Dean Bailey – more ...

Australian Football
(Official title of the code)

Whether it is called Australian Football, Australian Rules Football,
"Aussie Rules", the VFL, the AFL, Australia's only indigenous football code is officially entitled
'Australian football'.
It has never been officially referred to as 'Australian rules football'. Such terminology has only ever appeared in the form of football journalism, coined by different writers.
AFL refers to the elite Australian football competition known as the Australian Football League.
The insult of "Aussie Rules" equates to an offence of the words
"aerial ping-pong".
