Wednesday, April 16

Long-time AFL coach Neil Craig and former players' association boss Rob Kerr will share the management of Essendon's overhauled football department.

Roger Vaughan of AAP reported: Sports lawyer Michael Abrahams will also join the Bombers as their integrity officer.

Essendon have made the appointments in the wake of their disastrous supplements scandal, which resulted in the club being excluded from last year's finals series and the 12-month suspension of senior coach James Hird.

With Tuesday's three appointments, the only senior position yet to be filled at Essendon is their chief executive. That is expected to happen later this year.





Wednesday, April 16

Luke McDonald has wasted little time repaying North Melbourne's faith at last year's draft, with the young defender claiming the round four NAB AFL Rising Star nomination.

The Kangaroos' father-son selection delivered an assured defensive performance in North's 43-point triumph over the Sydney Swans on Sunday.

McDonald collected 20 touches, including seven contested, and held five marks in driving rain to help the Roos to a third-straight win.

Tuesday, April 15

Player names on jumpers could become a permanent feature in the AFL as soon as next season if reaction is positive to the concept to be trialled across Easter in round five.

The AFL webpage on Monday noted all 18 teams will be part of the test, with every player to have his name printed above his number on the back of the jumper.



Tuesday, April 15

Match Review Panel from Round 4 –

DALE MORRIS (WB) charged with tripping WILL HOSKIN-ELLIOTT (GWS) in Q1. An early guilty plea will result in a one-match suspension. On Tuesday morning Morris accepted his penalty under the early guilty plea provision.

Match day reports against ROBERT WARNOCK (Car). LANCE FRANKLIN (Syd), NICK MAXWELL (Col) and TRENT COTCHIN (Rch) were assessed and no further action was taken.

Tuesday, April 15

Attendances: Round 4 at 271,667 as detailed in *Match Review*.

Progressive tally for the season is 1,160,823.





Monday, April 14

The Eagles on Saturday night at Geelong were goalless after quarter-time – the last time this occurred in a League match was at York Park in 2006-R21 when North were 4.2 at the first break and ended the match 4.12-36 to Hawthorn's 7.16-58 ...

Recent records –










Monday, April 14
Unbeaten after five
93 per cent chance of finals action

5-0* and 4-0-1
Based on data from 1994 (first season with a top eight) to 2013, teams that are unbeaten after five matches have a 93 per cent likelihood of playing in the finals. Of the 28 teams that were 5-0 or 4-0-1, 26 made the top eight. Six of them topped the ladder, and 19 finished top four. Seven finished in positions 5-8.

Those that dropped out were Geelong in 1999 and Collingwood in 2000. Remarkably, in consecutive years, after winning their first five games, each dropped the next nine. The Cats finished 11th; the Pies finished 15th.

* For statistical purposes I have included Essendon in 2013 as a top eight team.

4-1 and 3-1-1
Forty-two teams have been either 4-1 or 3-1-1. Thirty-four (81 per cent) have been finalists. Five were top of the table, 19 were top four, and 15 finished in positions 5-8.

Eight teams failed to make the finals. The greatest declines were by Richmond in 2003 and Brisbane in 2010 who finished 13th. In recent seasons, in 2012 Carlton and Essendon fell to 10th and 11th positions, while in 2010 Fremantle fell to 11th.

Now to the tail end of the table.

0-5 and 0-4-1
Twenty-four teams have been winless after five matches. Of those, 11 picked up the wooden spoon, and 19 finished in the bottom four.

The highest finishing position by a team on 0-5 was Melbourne which were ninth in 1995. In the same season, Collingwood on 0-4-1 rose to 10th position by the end of the season.

1-4 and 1-3-1
Forty-six teams have been 1-4 after five matches, and another seven have been 1-3-1. Eight teams on 1-4 have finished last, and one of those on 1-3-1 finished on the bottom. Thirty-two of teams on 1-4 have finished bottom four, and four on 1-3-1 have finished in the bottom four.

There have been a few heady rises by teams on 1-4. In 1997 St Kilda broke the shackles to finish in top place at the end of the season. West Coast in 1996 and Geelong in 2004 rose to fourth place. Five other teams on 1-4 (Sydney 1999 and Hawthorn 2010) or 1-3-1 (Hawthorn 1996, Port Adelaide 2005 and St Kilda 2011) made it into the finals.

Supporters of teams with only one win should prepare for a rough ride for the rest of the season, but they should also hold out a slight hope of emulating the eight that defied gravity and reached the finals.





Friday, April 11

A federal government administrative bungle appears to have delayed the anti-doping case against controversial sports scientist Stephen Dank.

Roger Vaughan for AAP noted in the Sydney Morning Herald:
According to a media report, the Anti-Doping Rule Violation Panel (ADRVP) could not sit as scheduled on Thursday to look at Dank's case because it did not have enough members.

Four of the seven former panel members have departed.

It is understood that the panel cannot meet unless it has four members in total, even though only three of them are required to review any particular case.

The problem apparently arose when the panel vacancies were not filled in time, either by the appointment of former members or newcomers.

Dank issued a statement on Thursday night to Channel Nine's The Footy Show.

"I'm extremely angry with today's outcome – it just proves the amateurish display from day one," he said.

"This will further accelerate my legal team and I in our legal action".

Adding to the mystery surrounding the Fairfax story, government officials said they could not comment about the panel's activities.

Friday, April 11

The AFL’S controversial new ticket system is here to stay with the League confirming regular season matches will continue to be sold at different prices, regardless of supporter backlash.

Peter Rolfe in the Herald Sun reported: The League ruled out scrapping the new system and returning to its traditional structure, which did not have the complicated pricing bands that depend on the predicted popularity of certain matches.

AFL Fans’ Association president Brian Clarke said the group met the league this week and was told the new system was not a “set and forget” model.

AFL spokesman James Tonkin confirmed the new system would be reviewed but would return in 2015.





Thursday, April 10

In a world first, executives from Australia's major sporting codes made a commitment on Wednesday to rid their sports of homophobia.

ABC News reported all four football codes as well as Cricket Australia presented a united front in Sydney, emphasising the need to end discrimination in sport.

The agreement came ahead of the Bingham Cup, the world cup of gay rugby, with all codes agreeing to introduce policies in line with the new Anti-Homophobia and Inclusion Framework by the end of August.

It marks the first time in all the major professional sports in a country have collectively committed to tackling discrimination based on sexual orientation by way of inclusion policies.




Wednesday, April 9

Attendances: Round 3 is all clear to the total of 327,783 as detailed in *Match Review*..

However, extras have added to the R2 crowd of the Mel-WCE to bring a revised figure of 22,230, not 22,226.

Progressive tally for the season is 889,156.

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".
