Mark Harvey declines Fremantle invitation
Former Fremantle coach Mark Harvey has turned down an invite to attend the Dockers' 20-year anniversary dinner, claiming he doesn't feel comfortable returning to the club just yet.

Justin Chadwick for AAP reports: Harvey was left shattered after being axed as Dockers coach at the end of 2011 with a year remaining on his contract.

Fremantle sacked Harvey in order to parachute Ross Lyon into the head coach's role.

Harvey said his daughter's birthday celebrations meant he would be unable to attend Fremantle's gala dinner this Friday night.

But it seems the lingering pain of his dismissal is the driving force keeping him away from the club.

"I just think I've got to keep my distance for a while," Harvey told Perth radio station 6PR on Wednesday.

Rollercoaster rides
In the last couple of decades some teams have experienced big jumps and falls season to season.

Essendon’s 1993 premiership was flanked by finishes well outside the finals. Melbourne’s finals appearances in 1998 and 2000 were flanked by very lowly finishes. Some of the most marked contrasts include:

Note the mirror images of Melbourne/Brisbane in 1997-99, and Port Adelaide/Western Bulldogs in 2006-08.

If there is anything to be learned from all this, it is that anything is possible. Don’t be disheartened with a sudden tumble to the lower reaches of the ladder. Don’t think that a sudden rise to the top positions will be sustained.

Wednesday, July 30
Essendon board confirm their support of Hird
Essendon's board on Tuesday declared it is united behind exiled senior coach James Hird following strident comments in The Age by Caroline Wilson.

Michael Warner in the Herald Sun Online wrote: “As a result of ongoing inaccurate and mischievous reporting by Fairfax Media the Essendon FC board wishes to re-confirm its position relating to James Hird,” the club’s nine directors said in a joint statement on Tuesday.

“The board is unanimous in its support of James and the strategy in place relating to his return to the club. To suggest the board is split in its support for James is simply not true.

“Given the testing time our club has been through over the past two years, the board is immensely proud of the resilience of our players, coaches, staff and supporters and have no doubt that the ongoing loyalty of everyone at Essendon will continue to galvanise our club.

“We are united as a club and the Essendon board will continue to make decisions in the best interest of our players, staff and members.”

Bomber chairman Paul Little said on Friday the decision was made “in the best interests of the club and, most importantly, the players” as the team head towards September.

Tribunal
Vickery suspended for four matches
At the Tribunal on Tuesday evening Richmond's Ty Vickery did not seek to contest the MRP gradings and pleaded guilty. The tall forward did not give evidence.

The jury of Wayne Henwood, Emmett Dunne and Wayne Schimmelbusch took seven minutes to allocate 495 demerit points to Vickery, ruling him out for four matches.

He will carry the 95 carry-over points on his record for the next 12 months.

Vickery's hit knocked West Coast's Dean Cox out and he was substituted out of the Eagles' 17-point loss last Friday night at Subiaco Oval.

He had an existing bad record of 43.75 demerit points, which were taken into account when setting the final penalty.

Tribunal – 2014

Essendon will play Carlton at the MCG on Saturday afternoon, with Sydney hosting Richmond and Fremantle welcoming Port Adelaide on the same day.

Sydney will play their round 23 match at the Olympic Stadium at Homebush, where it is likely to host any home finals –

West Coast's Luke Shuey and Mark LeCras have both accepted $900 sanctions for engaging in misconduct against Vickery in the same match.
Sydney's Jeremy Laidler has accepted a reprimand and 70.31 points towards his future record for striking Hawthorn's Jack Gunston during Saturday night's MCG clash.
Tribunal – 2014

West Coast ruckman Dean Cox admits he's not the "best of mates" with Ty Vickery, but is grateful to receive an apology from the Richmond big man.

Justin Chadwick for AAP reported: Vickery is facing suspension after hitting Cox in the jaw with a roundhouse blow during Richmond's 17-point win at Subiaco on Friday night.

Cox, who was knocked out, has little memory of the game – and none of the incident itself.

The retiring Eagle didn't suffer any structural damage but remains in doubt for Saturday's away clash with Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.

Vickery publicly apologised to Cox on Sunday and he also gave the Eagles legend a telephone call to express his remorse over the incident.

Melbourne has confirmed Paul Roos has extended his contract as Demons coach through until the end of the 2016 season.

Yahoo! Sport reported: Roos, who coached Sydney to the 2005 premiership, had been appointed on a two-year deal and has decided to take the option of a third season in charge.

The Demons sit in 17th place on the ladder with a 4-13 record.

Richmond forward Jake King announced his retirement on Monday.

The 30-year-old has played just twice this season, stranded on the long-term injury list at Punt Road with foot and toe injuries.

King will finish with 107 games for the Tigers and 79 goals.

There's always another story ...

AFL-NAB Rising Star, Round 18
Jonathon Patton (GWS Giants)
Former No.1 draft pick Jonathon Patton has entered the race for this year's NAB AFL Rising Star award.

The AFL webpage noted: The Greater Western Sydney big man catapulted himself into the running after a strong aerial display in the Giant's narrow loss to Geelong in round 18.

Patton hauled in a career-best nine marks and booted two goals from 15 possessions as GWS fell seven points short against the Cats.

It was a clear sign of big things to come from GWS and Patton, who becomes the Giants' 13th Rising Star nominee in less than three seasons.

A ruptured ACL wrecked his 2013 campaign but he's finally getting continuity in his football and it's working wonders.

The 198cm Eastern Ranges product has booted 21 goals from 16 games this season and is averaging almost 12 disposals and five marks playing a variety of roles.

James Hird returns to prepare for 2015
James Hird's return to Essendon has been confirmed by the club, although the currently-suspended coach will take up a limited role for the remainder of the 2014 season.

ABC Sport reports: Hird, who has spent time overseas since receiving his AFL ban in 2013, will not be present in the Bombers' coaching box or at training for the remainder of 2014, and instead will be tasked with preparing for the 2015 season away from the playing group.

Essendon chairman Paul Little expressed his delight at welcoming Hird back to the club from August 25, but stressed the parameters of his return.

"We have all agreed that when James is eligible to return to the club on August 25, James' focus will be entirely on the 2015 season – he will not be in the coaching box or have an active coaching role at training.

"In that time period between August 25 until our final game of the season, James will take the opportunity to begin planning the upcoming pre-season, list management, recruiting and preparation for 2015 away from the club."

Bombers appoint Xavier Campbell as CEO
Essendon also revealed 34-year-old Xavier Campbell had been promoted to the role of chief executive at the club.

Campbell had spent time working as the club's chief operating officer and general manager of projects and partnerships, and says that his new appointment is an honour.

"We had an extremely talented and experienced group of candidates from a range of different business and sporting backgrounds to choose from, but as a club we felt Xavier had displayed the necessary qualities and business acumen to make the step up to the role of CEO,” Essendon chairman Paul Little said.

“Xavier has been an integral member of the club’s senior management for the past five years, and over the last eight months has shown tremendous leadership, work ethic and vision as interim CEO.”

The 1948 VFL premiership flag missing from the Melbourne FC has been found in southern New South Wales town Moama on the Murray River opposite Echuca.

The flag surfaced on eBay this week with a starting price of $80,000.

ABC Sport reports: The pennant was awarded to the Demons after defeating Essendon by 39 points in a rematch after the league's first ever grand final draw.

Acting Superintendent Michael Tranby said the grand final icon was seized at a home in Moama on Wednesday.

The flag was officially listed as missing in 2000 but it was not known exactly when it disappeared.

Police were investigating how the flag came to be in NSW and have told club officials the pennant would be returned once the investigation ends.

Ruckman Tom Hickey on Thursday became the seventh St Kilda player to be ruled out for the remainder of the season because of knee tendonitis.

Hickey, 23, has played six games in 2014 for a career total of 30.

Beau Maister (shoulder), Eli Templeton (arm), Arryn Siposs (shoulder), Tom Lee (shoulder), Daniel Markworth (hamstring) and Jimmy Webster (foot) also won't play again this season.
Last-placed St Kilda have a 4-13 record and have a bye this weekend.

The GWS Giants have suffered a fourth season-ending injury in little more than a week, with luckless key defender Tim Mohr requiring a left knee reconstruction.

Adrian Warren of AAP reported: The 25-year-old Tasmanian was hurt against Geelong last Saturday and became the sixth Giant ruled out for the rest of the AFL season.

Last week, gun young midfielders Lachie Whitfield (shoulder and foot) and Stephen Coniglio (thumb) were ruled out.

On Tuesday, the club announced star forward Jeremy Cameron would sit out the rest of the year and undergo knee and ankle surgery.

Mohr is the third Giants key back to suffer a season-ending injury after Aidan Corr (shoulder) and Nick Haynes (ankle).

Two other defenders – Heath Shaw and Curtly Hampton – are also out injured, with the Giants never being able to field their first-choice back six this year, following early-season injuries to Mohr and co-captain Phil Davis (kidney).

Hampton (shoulder) has missed the last six games and is likely to be unavailable for two more.

The Giants don't have the option of promoting their one remaining rookie list player, midfielder Sam Schulz, as he is sidelined with a rib problem.

The expanding injury toll shouldn't get any larger this week, as both senior and reserve sides have a bye.

Brisbane has reportedly appointed Greg Swann as the club's new CEO.

Fairfax Media reported on Thursday that Swann would be announced as Malcolm Holmes' replacement as soon as Friday.

Swann stepped down as Carlton CEO in June after seven years in the role.

 

 

 

Thursday, July 24

Suspended Essendon coach James Hird arrived back in Melbourne on Tuesday following recent months in France at a business training school.
It has been reported he has engaged in talks with Essendon officials on his return to the game when his AFL suspension is completed at Round 23.

Kane Cornes will play on into a 15th season following signing on with Port Adelaide for 2015.
The 31-year-old has played 285 matches and is Port's games record-holder.

The AFL has warned clubs not to comment on potential Match Review Panel or Tribunal matters in a way that might affect the case in the wake of the Brian Lake-Drew Petrie hearing.
Peter Ryan writes on the AFL webpage: The AFL wrote to all clubs to reiterate that it was important to be cautious when asked about incidents that the MRP might assess.

Port Adelaide legend Warren Tredrea has been appointed as an All Australian selector, AFL general manager of football operations Mark Evans confirmed on Wednesday.
The nine-man All Australian selection panel consists of Gillon McLachlan (chairman), Kevin Bartlett, Luke Darcy, Evans, Danny Frawley, Glen Jakovich, Cameron Ling, Matthew Richardson and Tredrea.
The panel, along with Kevin Sheehan, also chooses the winner of the NAB AFL Rising Star Award.

Surprise packets
Since the half-way mark of this season, there have been nine matches where a side has been defeated by another side six or more places below it on the ladder at the time they met.

This is a relatively high figure given there have been just six rounds beyond the half-way mark.

The figures for recent seasons for a full quota of matches in the second half of the season are as follows:

2014 so far

Nine different teams have inflicted the damage. Port Adelaide (three times, in consecutive weeks) and North (twice) have been multiple victims.

In Rd 15, Adelaide 11th d Port Adelaide 1st
In Rd 16, Essendon 10th d Port Adelaide 2nd
In Rd 17, Richmond 12th d Port Adelaide 3rd.

In Rd 15, Brisbane 17th d North Melbourne 7th
In Rd 18, Carlton 14th d North Melbourne 6th.

Previous seasons

In 2013, Geelong was the victim three times, while North inflicted damage on two occasions. The Cats still managed to finish second on the ladder.

In 2009, Essendon was the victim three times, but still managed to cling to eighth place and a finals spot.

In 2007, West Coast was the victim three times, and Brisbane was the spoiler on three occasions.

Summing-up

Instances of lower-placed sides springing surprises are not rare, but 2014 may end up being a year when they are more frequent than usual.

 

 

 

Wednesday, July 23

The Williamstown club has become the first multiple winner of the Foxtel Cup after crushing West Perth by 63 points in the Grand Final held at Kardinia Park on Tuesday night in chilly conditions of five degrees.

The AFL webpage reported the 10.11 to 1.2 victory added another trophy to the Seagulls' cabinet to sit alongside their 2011 triumph, the inaugural Foxtel Cup season. The win also boosted the club’s coffers by $100,000 to help with their 150th anniversary celebrations.

It was a significant achievement for Williamstown in its first year back as a standalone club in the VFL since 2000, following alignments with AFL clubs Collingwood and the Western Bulldogs – the latter ending last season.

It was also the second Foxtel Cup triumph for Williamstown coach Andy Collins, who led West Adelaide to last year’s title over Claremont.

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".
