where footy never takes a holiday!




Friday, December 19

In contradiction of our claim, Footystats in now officially on holiday – our normal service will resume on January 9 – please stay safe and enjoy a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Nathan Jones has inked a new four-year deal with Melbourne expiring at the end of 2019 ...
Brisbane's next chore is to renegotiate a new deal for the Gabba ...
The Herald Sun reported midfielder Toby Greene has re-signed with the GWS Giants for three years (to the end of 2018) — nine days after being fined $2500 but escaping conviction, having pleaded guilty to unlawful assault.
The 21-year-old Greene was suspended by the Giants for five games and fined $5000 — the maximum allowed under rules agreed to by the AFL Players’ Association and the clubs — after initially failing to tell the club of the incident and drinking while injured.
The attack by Greene and a friend on a bouncer happened at Zagame’s Hotel in Caulfield in May.
Richmond assistant coach Mark Williams has responded positively after being diagnosed with lymphoma in November. The Herald Sun notes the 56-year-old is expected to soon resume his duties at Punt Road.
Hawthorn's crack forward Jarryd Roughead, now 27, has inked a two-season extension ending 2018 ...
news filtered through that the Western Bulldogs on Tuesday (16th) announced a profit of $329,945 (2013: $143,090 loss) on a turnover of  $37,538,814 (2013: $34,052,817).

On Friday (Dec 19) ASADA continued to present its case against 34 current and former Essendon players charged with doping offences and will resume when the AFL Anti-Doping Tribunal of David Jones, QC, John Nixon and Wayne Henwood reconvenes on January 12.

There's always another story ...

Interesting fact
AFL conferences and divisions?
Look carefully
Globally, top tier sports competitions with too many clubs for a single-ladder ranking, such as European soccer leagues and US pro sports, have tried two ways of dealing with this: Euro-style vertical divisions with promotion & relegation, or the standard US arrangement of dual conferences and (mainly geographical) horizontal divisions. Each has its potential problems.

Dropping bottom-of-the-ladder clubs down a division risks major stadiums being almost deserted for a season while their tenant clubs are stuck in Division Two: imagine Subiaco Oval with average WAFL crowds for 20 weekends a season after West Coast & Fremantle finished 17th and 18th the year before. Or the same with an 80% empty Adelaide Oval while the Crows & the Power battled it out in the SANFL. Or the MCG not hosting two of Carlton, Collingwood, Essendon, Hawthorn, and Richmond. (NB: no dissing of anybody or any body intended.)

In the typical American sports [Conference + Divisions] structure, their NFL has a National Football Conference and an American Football Conference, and each has North, South, East & West Divisions, with the Division leaders qualifying automatically for Week 1 of the NFL playoffs. Which is normally not a problem, except for this year’s NFL season: with just two regular season games to go, in one Division (NFC South) no team has a winning season, and in another Division (AFC North) every team has a winning season. Which, in turn, could mean that Carolina could make the playoffs with a W5 / L10 / T1 regular season finish, and nine other teams with winning seasons could miss out. ^

Yes, we can learn from foreigners and adopt and / or adapt what they do, but only after due diligence and thoughtful examination. And definitely not because of what 1950s literary scholar and great Wesley College (Melbourne) English master A A Phillips called our ‘cultural cringe’.

(Note that these standings can be viewed by Divisions, according to Conferences, or in a whole-of-League layout.)

^ At least twice, VFL+AFL finals have included teams with losing H&A records: 1995 – Brisbane W10 / L12, in Brisbane’s first Finals series) and 1916 – Fitzroy W2 / L9 / D1, in a unique four-club competition; other Footystats devotees may know of others.

Sydney Swans profit $846,871 on $46.5m turnover
Sydney Swans Limited have announced a profit of $846,871 for the 2014 financial year.

It is the Club’s fourth successive profit and was achieved with revenue growth of just under nine per cent to $46.5m.

Sydney Swans Chairman Andrew Pridham on the club website said by virtually all measures the Club had a great year both on and off the field.

“Whilst we didn’t achieve the ultimate success we finished the home and away season with the most wins in a season ever for this club, we were minor premiers, and we played in two home finals,” he said.

“We exceeded 40,000 members for the first time and we had average crowds of 38,716 watch our home games and a gross TV audience of over 23 million" – more ...

ASADA batting first at Anti-Doping hearing
ASADA has opened its case against 34 past and present Essendon players and sports scientist Stephen Dank before the AFL Anti-Doping Tribunal.

The AFL in a statement on Monday afternoon which contained nothing which was said in court on the day noted ASADA's opening submissions were expected to continue on Thursday and Friday before the Anti-Doping Tribunal adjourns until January 12.

The Anti-Doping Tribunal, is being held without the presence of media or public in the Victorian County Court in Melbourne.

Supreme Court rejects ASADA bid to force Charter and Alavi to front Anti-Doping Tribunal
The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority's application to subpoena two witnesses to appear at an AFL tribunal over the Essendon Football Club's supplement regime has failed in the Supreme Court.

The tribunal involving 34 current and past Essendon players is scheduled to go ahead on Monday.

The ABC Grandstand webpage notes the players are facing bans of up to two years if they are found guilty of taking the banned peptide Thymosin beta-4 during the 2012 season.

The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) had wanted to compel Shane Charter and Nima Alavi to appear at the tribunal to give evidence.

But the Supreme Court on Friday rejected its application – more ...

Geelong re-sign Duncan, Caddy and Lonergan
Star players Mitch Duncan, Josh Caddy and Tom Lonergan have all re-signed with Geelong in an off-season boost for the Cats.

Yahoo! Sport reports: With a year remaining on their current contracts, Duncan and Caddy have both signed three-year deals which will see them remain with the club until at least the end of 2018.

Lonergan, who also has a year remaining on his previous contract, has signed a one-year contract extension, and will remain with Geelong until at least the end of 2016.

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".

Successive wins by 100+pts
Successive defeats by 100+pts
The 99pt club ...


MARTIN WINDSOR-BLACK in 2000 brought to light that only two clubs had recorded 100+pt victories in two rounds, Geelong and Sydney – since added to by St Kilda in 2004 and the Cats again in 2011.

Geelong have achieved this four times, once in three consecutive rounds.
Geelong 1981
1981-R12-KP 100pts 19.21-135 v St Kilda 4.11-35
1981-R13-KP 114pts 26.14-170 v North Melb 8.8-56

1987-R17-SCG 163pts 36.20-236 v Essendon 11.7-73

*

Geelong 1989
1989-R7-KP 119pts 35.18-228 v St Kilda 16.13-109 *

*

* note: St Kilda’s 16.13-109 in 1989-R7-KP
in the highest for a team losing by
100pts or more.
MWB also zeroed in on the clubs who have lost by 100pts or more in successive rounds. It has happened to six clubs—to St Kilda in three consecutive rounds which was a disastrous start to the 1985 season.
St Kilda 1901
1901-R16-AP 102pts 3.4-22 v Melbourne 19.10-124

*

To the end of 2014, there have been 280 games with margins of 100pts or more.
Finally, members of the 99 Point Club — the 19 times of whether they have won, or lost by 99pts —
