Eade's appointment as coach of Suns confirmed
Rodney Eade is officially the Gold Coast Suns' new coach for the next three years after Collingwood on Thursday confirmed they had reached an agreement.

Yahoo! Sport reported: The Suns had hoped to make the announcement earlier this week but were delayed due to Collingwood's claim of compensation for their former director of football Eade.

After three days of talks the clubs agreed on an undisclosed sum but there is speculation that it was as high as $50,000.

"Confirmation of the appointment followed meaningful negotiations as Rodney had an employment contract in place with Collingwood, however, a mutual agreement was reached between our two clubs, and we are now extremely happy to ratify Rodney as our new senior coach," Suns chairman John Witheriff said in a statement.

A veteran of 314 games as an AFL head coach, Eade, 56, takes control of his third club after guiding Sydney to the 1996 grand final and three straight preliminary finals with the Western Bulldogs.

Collingwood chief executive Gary Pert said he would oversee the club's football department as they searched for a replacement for Eade.

"'Rocket' has been a great source of support to our coach, Nathan Buckley, and his experience, industry knowledge, football IQ and personality made him an outstanding person to have at our club," Pert said of Eade who had been Magpies director of football for the last three years – more ...

There's always another story ...

COMMENT
Beautiful irony unfolds
Rodney Eade has made a bold move to sever ties from Collingwood and become the coach of a prospective new force in the AFL, the Gold Coast Suns – we wish Rocket the best, with the expectations he can go one further than the grand final of 1996 when the Swans under his coaching finished runners-up to North Melbourne.

The irony which has followed Eade's judgement will bring a smirk to the face of many followers of the Sydney Swans as the morning breakfast presenter on a Melbourne radio station, who is also the loud-mouthed head of the Collingwood club, is claiming "compensation" for the loss of Eade.

Perhaps he should cool his temper with a long swig of cola.

Pre-season draw released
The AFL continues to overhaul its pre-season format, ditching the 18 games in 18 days experiment for a four-week schedule under the banner of NAB Challenge.

Roger Vaughan of AAP for Yahoo! Sport notes next year's series will start on February 26 and run until March 22 – the full detail of the draw is in the right-hand sidebar.

The League will then have a week off until the regular season starts in early April.

Each club will play three pre-season games, spread over four weekends.

Regional and other non-traditional AFL venues will again feature heavily in the pre-season fixture – Blacktown (NSW), Mandurah (WA), Burpengary (Qld), Townsville (QLD), Fremantle Oval (WA), Coffs Harbour (NSW), Morwell (Vic), Shepparton (Vic), North Ballarat (Vic), Lavington (NSW) will again host pre-season clashes while Drummoyne (NSW), Norwood (SA) and Port Lincoln (SA) get their first taste of AFL football.

Sydney challenge the Commission
McLachlan says the Swans "can't have everyone"
Sydney Swans chairman Andrew Pridham has confirmed that the club will front a specially-convened meeting of the AFL Commission on December 15 to contest the restrictions which have banned the club from trading players.

The club's decision on Monday night came just hours after AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan publicly urged Sydney to accept the ban saying, "they can't have everyone."

AFL powerbrokers imposed the ban earlier this month, preventing the Swans from trading until the end of the 2016 season unless they abandon their cost of living allowance – a bone of contention for other clubs during Sydney's recent era of on-field success.

The ruling also stopped the club from signing up any restricted or unrestricted free agents for the coming two seasons.

Rodney Eade set to coach Gold Coast
Gold Coast have presented Rodney Eade with a belated chance to fix the one glaring gap in his outstanding AFL career.

Roger Vaughan for AAP reported: The 56-year-old will take over from Guy McKenna as the Suns' coach, with the appointment expected to be made official by the end of the week.

Of the 19 men to coach 300 or more matches in VFL-AFL history, Eade and John Northey are the only ones not to have guided a team to a premiership.

Eade has gone close, with Sydney making the 1996 grand final and the Western Bulldogs playing in the 2008-10 preliminary finals – more ...

Mark Neeld joins Bombers
Mark Neeld, the former Melbourne coach (2012-13) will return to the AFL, joining Essendon to head their player development.

The appointment was made Tuesday a day after the Demons also appointed newly-departed Western Bulldogs coach Brendan McCartney in a development and strategy role.

Neeld will report to football department boss Neil Craig, who succeeded him after he was sacked from the Demons after round 11 in June 2013.

The Bombers said Neeld will concentrate on working with their first- to third-year players.

Demons latch onto McCartney
Brendan McCartney has found a new home with Melbourne.

The Demons pounced to secure the former Bulldog coach as a development and strategy coach just a fortnight after he resigned at Whitten Oval.

The appointment is one for the long-term, with Demons' coach-in-waiting Simon Goodwin seeing McCartney as the ideal offsider and confidant for his tenure.

Goodwin was appointed in September as Paul Roos' successor as head coach from 2017.

Demons football operations head Josh Mahoney suggested McCartney was a superb fit to nurture Melbourne's young list – more ...

Hawks to elect Newbold for another three years
Hawthorn president Andrew Newbold will remain at the helm of the Hawks until the end of the 2017 season.

Newbold will be elected unopposed to the role at the AGM on December 11, with nominations to lead the premiers closing without an opponent emerging.

By design or coincidence, Newbold has seen Hawthorn play off in the grand final in each of his three years as president winning the 2013 and 2014 premierships.

A new record crowd was set on Saturday night for the Adelaide Oval when 54,115 saw The Rolling Stones in concert.

ASADA waits on Hird appeal judgement
ASADA has denied a request from the AFL Players' Association to speed up the anti-doping case against 34 current and past Essendon players.

Roger Vaughan for AAP reported in Yahoo! Sport: AFLPA chief executive Paul Marsh had announced on Thursday morning that there would be no response to ASADA's show cause notices.

The association called on ASADA to speed up the process by taking the matter to the Anti-Doping Violation Panel within seven days.

But ASADA is unimpressed with the association's request and has written to the players' lawyer to remind him that the demands are inconsistent with the mandatory provisions of the National Anti-Doping scheme and as such, ASADA is unable to agree to them," the anti-doping body said in its statement.

"ASADA also reminded the players' lawyer that a number of their demands for fast-tracking the process were within the control of the AFL, and not ASADA.

"The CEO of ASADA does not have the power to direct the AFL to expedite anti-doping cases before its tribunal."

ASADA issued original show cause notices in June to 34 current and past Essendon players.

Essendon and coach James Hird then launched Federal Court action against ASADA.

After those legal challenges failed, the anti-doping body went ahead earlier this month with amended show cause notices.

Hird is appealing against the Federal Court finding, but the club has accepted the verdict.

"It was appropriate for ASADA to delay the delivery of evidence in these matters until a judgment was handed down," the anti-doping body said.

"In the normal course of events, the comprehensive summary of evidence provided to players in the amended show cause notices in October would have been available to players back in July.

"ASADA is as keen as anyone to finalise these matters, but it will not risk the proper consideration of these serious matters for the sake of speed."

ASADA added the players have until October 27 to respond to the show cause notices.

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".
