Stab Kicks ...

April 30: Carolyn Wilson in The Age on Saturday notes – Matthews was his typically blunt self and his question was as uncomfortable as it was provocative. "Do you really want a team in Brisbane?" Because if not, Matthews reasoned, his board might as well hand over the keys. In debt to the tune of some $13 million – roughly $8 million of that owed to the AFL – the once-mighty Brisbane were also suffering from a bad case of relevance deprivation –

April 26: Telstra Broadband brought Footystats details to a halt for most of Sunday, Monday and Tuesday – still picking up the pieces, so please excuse the bare spots as we move through catch-up mode.

April 26: Sydney Morning Herald sports story by Dominic Bossi on Tuesday was headlined – AFL sparks turf war over grass height -- and the AFL’s refusal to have the 28mm high grass cut at Adelaide Oval before the Saturday afternoon Crows-Fremantle match on which Western Sydney soccer club refuse to train on as the grass is 3mm longer than “football standards” rules require, The grass will be cut to suit soccer before their Sunday match. In the meantime the Sydney visitors “will be forced to conduct their last training sessions at Hindmarsh Stadium (aka as Coopers)”

April 25: A hefty 85,082 turned out at the MCG on a fine and sunny ANZAC day, the highest tally surely when teams ranked 15th and 16th have met ... a highlight was the debut of Dallas-born Mason Cox, a former basket-baller and Oklahoma State University graduate who ranges at 211.4cm (according to Fox Footy's Sandy Roberts) as the tallest man to play our Australian game – the 25-year-old who first met with Australian Football at an AFL draft combine held in Los Angeles in 2013 capped his first senior game with Collingwood's first goal of the match; he also finished with 10 disposals ...

April 23: Hawthorn have signed coach Alastair Clarkson to a three-year extension until the end of season 2019.

April 22:
Eleni Glouftsis is just a hamstring away from becoming the first female field umpire to officiate in an AFL premiership match.
Sam Edmund reports in the Herald Sun that Glouftsis, 23, was named emergency umpire for the St Kilda-GWS match at Docklands on Sunday.
The schoolteacher impressed when given a chance in a NAB Challenge match between Essendon and Carlton on February 28 at Princes Park.


April 19: The Washington Post reports: A federal appeals court Monday upheld a settlement that calls for monetary rewards estimated to reach nearly $1 billion for many former NFL players who have suffered concussions playing professional football and enhanced medical testing for current and future ones.
The current settlement calls for generous payments for former players suffering from debilitating conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS. The agreement also mandates NFL owners dedicate $75 million to baseline assessments and $10 million to educational efforts. Barring further appeals, Christopher Seeger, co-lead counsel for the large group of former players said players in need could begin seeing money within three to four months of the case’s finality – more ...

April 19:
The AFL Commission will no longer use a replay for a drawn grand final going instead to a period of extra time, split into two five-minute halves with sides changing ends during a break between the two halves.
ABC Grandstand Sport noted the AFL said if the scores remain level after the second half of extra time, the siren would not sound, with play continuing until the next score from either team.

Reminiscing – Past seasons in review since 1950
Here’s some nostalgia, musing on past campaigns in a very different era.

Going to the footy in Melbourne in 1965 was still like it was pre-war, with run-down facilities at most grounds, and the most basic provision of comforts, frightful loos, a maelstrom of bodies and hands to buy food and drinks. Food = pie or hot dog (a burger was too hard for the provenders). Drink = beer. Most patrons got to venues by train or tram, although more and more were using their cars. Parking was often 20 minutes walk away from the ground
