Hawks and Swans crowd swells the heart
The crowd of 63,319 who went through the turnstiles at the G on Saturday night raised the memories of times faded now from most of our minds, when the Swans had moved to Sydney and went through times of 26 games without a win and the Hawks were a breath away from merging with the Demons.

How quickly the pattern changes and a re-match of last year's grand finalists can swell the MCG with the sixth-best crowd for an interstate side in home-and-away matches to see our great game at headquarters —

72,768 — 2014-R18, Haw v Syd
72,130 — 1999-R22, Haw v Syd [at Waverley]
69,237 — 1996-R21, Ess v Syd
65,306 — 2013-R9,   Col v Syd
63,842 — 2007-R21, Col v Syd
63,319 — 2015-R8,   Haw v Syd
62,957 — 2012-R13, Col v WCE
62,866 — 1998-R11, Ess v Syd

Stab Kicks from Round 8...
Geelong had a 77-point win over Carlton – just one-point shy of the 78pt-best posted at Docklands (162-84) in 2007-R2 when Cameron Mooney kicked five goals and on debut Travis Varcoe kicked a goal with his first kick in League footy ...

Hartung: Rising Star and "beep test" records
MWB notes Hawthorn's Billy Hartung who is the AFL-NAB Rising Star nominee from Round 7 is reported as having one of the best “beep test” records in the world (16.06) – not just the best ever result at the AFL Combine.

From the AFL Combine, Hawthorn’s Brad Hill has the second best ever recorded result of 16.01 . 

This list is from http://www.topendsports.com/testing/records/shuttle-run.htm

There is an unconfirmed report that
Robert Harvey ex St Kilda AFL (1988-2008) recorded 18.5 and 18.8 in the late 90's

AFL remains 4th-best competition in the world
The Age Online reported Wednesday that the AFL has retained its standing as the fourth-best attended sporting competition in the world, despite the addition in recent years of two expansion teams in states which historically favour the rugby codes.

The average attendance for AFL home and away matches in 2014 was 32,436 – bolstered by the huge crowds drawn to the refurbished Adelaide Oval.

The two Adelaide sides and three of Melbourne's most popular clubs – Collingwood, Essendon and Richmond – all attracted an average of more than 43,000 fans to their home games in 2014.

Ten of the 18 AFL clubs pulled bigger home crowds than NRL pacesetters Brisbane, whose average attendance at Lang Park Stadium was 33,354 last year.

In contrast, six of the 20 English Premier League teams in the 2013-14 were based in London, while half of the AFL's 18 clubs are in Melbourne, with Geelong also just an hour away down
the Princes Highway.

 

 

Thursday, May 21

MWB notes Carlton are the 9th team to be in 18th position on the AFL ladder and will most likely be the 6th club to be there for more than one round.

GWS – 34 times (longest streak - 20 rounds)
Brisbane – 12 (8)
St Kilda – 11 (11)
Melbourne – 8 (3)
Gold Coast – 7 (6)
Carlton, Collingwood, Geelong, North Melbourne – 1

Carlton’s longest streak in last place is 19 rounds 2002-R6 – 2003-R2

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".
