Sydney seek legal opinion to lift trading ban
The Age reports the Sydney Swans remain hopeful of appearing before the AFL Commission in December in a bid to have their ban from trading in players next year overturned.

Fairfax Media has been told the Swans have even sought legal opinion about the recently enforced ban, should the AFL not seriously rethink its move.

Jon Pierik details: The Swans have officially written to the AFL seeking to have their case for a reversal heard and continue to plot counter arguments.

The Swans were stunned when told they would be banned from trading in players – unless they were delisted free agents – during this month's trade period. The ban stands for 2015.

Gerard Healy, a commentator and the Swans' 1988 Brownlow medallist, took aim at the AFL's decision, claiming league chiefs may have been "spooked" and decided to act amid speculation the Swans had been chasing Melbourne free agent James Frawley, who would ultimately sign with Hawthorn.

"What emerged was the worst piece of vindictive bastardry legislation that I have ever seen from the commission," Healy said on 3AW.

"There has been silence from head office ever since its inception because surely no one on the commission is going to admit to fathering and nurturing this legislative tripe.

"Not the chairman, Mike Fitzpatrick, despite his anger over the Buddy defection, not Gill McLachlan, who has to implement it, and surely not the AFL legal man Andrew Dillon, who must have questioned its legality. He would expect to need to defend it in court if it goes to a second year" – more ...

Harvey is Hird's No.2 – where does Bomber fit in?
The future of Mark Thompson at Essendon remains unclear following Wednesday's appointment of Mark Harvey on a two-year deal as assistant coach.

Thompson had a successful stint as interim Essendon coach this season while Hird served a 12-month AFL suspension.

Thompson made it clear at Essendon's best and fairest function that he did not want to return to a senior assistant role.

He is back from an overseas holiday and Neil Craig, who is Essendon's head of coaching development and strategy, speaking on SEN said Thompson had spoken to chairman Paul Little and chief executive Xavier Campbell.

Craig was hopeful of a decision in the next few days.

AFLPA says players will not respond to notices
Lawyers representing the bulk of the players caught up in the Essendon supplements scandal have told ASADA they won’t respond to show-cause notices.

The AFL webpage reports: The move puts the ball back in ASADA’s court and should expedite the process, which has already taken 21 months.

“The players do not intend to respond to the show cause notices,” AFL Players' Association chief executive Paul Marsh confirmed in a statement on Thursday – more ...

Brisbane bring back the old lion
The Brisbane Lions on Tuesday unveiled their guernsey for season 2015 and beyond, officially marking a return to wearing the club’s guernsey, that was designed at the time of the 1997 merger and was famously worn by the club during its three-peat premiership success of 2001-02-03.

Club Vice-Captain, Tom Rockliff, was on hand to launch the guernsey which not only represents the most successful period in club history, but also the first 13 years after merging with Fitzroy.

Throughout the Lions combined 128-year history – made up from Fitzroy, the Bears and the merged Brisbane Lions – the Club has worn a variety of different guernsey designs.

The only other guernsey that you could argue has been engrained with such ‘greatness’ as the original guernsey, is the one worn by Fitzroy at the beginning of the VFL competition, which was a canvas lace-up style and reaped a total of four premierships (1898, 1899, 1904 and 1905).

For years, Lions supporter groups have passionately campaigned to revert to the original jumper, with 71.4 per cent of 3000 survey correspondents last year requesting the strip worn in the three premierships, between 2001 and 2003, brought back.

The jumper will make a welcome return to the field in 2015, after members voted overwhelming in favour of a change back at the Annual General Meeting held at the Gabba last year.

VFL and WAFL telecasts set for Seven Network
The VFL and WAFL are set to follow the SANFL onto the Seven Network.

The ABC after being told to rid itself of outside broadcast vans were unable to commit to broadcasting state league matches next year in the midst of savage government funding cuts.

The AFL webpage reported: "The ABC has always indicated that it was unable to commit to new seasons until the current budget situation was resolved and indicated it would not stand in the way of those respective leagues looking elsewhere," an ABC spokesman told AFL.com.au.

Being on a commercial network will enable both the WAFL and VFL greater exposure for their respective sponsors.

Channel 7 this year successfully took over televising the SANFL, South Australia's state competition this year, with improved ratings, a promotional boost and enhanced production values on one of its digital channels.

Chris Pelchen quits Saints
Chris Pelchen resigned on Tuesday as St Kilda’s head of football.

St Kilda and Pelchen parted ways after a comprehensive review of the Saints’ off-field operations after they finished with the wooden spoon identified an increased need to focus on high performance. List manager and chief operating officer Ameet Bains will temporarily head up the Saints’ football department until a replacement is found.

ASADA issues 34 new 'show cause' notices
The Australian Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) on Friday issued new 'show cause' notices to 34 former and current Essendon players.

ABC Sport reported: The amended notices are in relation to the use of the banned substance, Thymosin Beta 4, and come after court action involving the club was resolved last month.

The Federal Court ruled on September 19 ASADA's investigation into Essendon's supplements program was lawful.

The club accepted Justice John Middleton's decision, while recently reinstated coach James Hird's appeal is set to be heard on November 10,

ASADA said in a statement, despite Hird's ongoing legal action, it "has agreed to a formal request by the legal team for the bulk of the players to expedite the 'show cause' notice process".

"Each amended notice is individually tailored and is approximately 350 pages in length (this totals about 12,000 pages for the 34 players)," the statement said.

"All notices include a comprehensive summary of the evidence in support of the case against each player."

AFL Players' Association (AFLPA) chief executive Paul Marsh confirmed the players' lawyers had received the notices – more ...

Staunch defence of Essendon at Canberra inquiry
Taking action against Essendon players over supplement use has been compared to charging a construction worker for getting an asbestos-related disease.

Paul Osborne for AAP reported for Yahoo! Sports! – AFL Players' Association official Ian Prendergast made the comparison while outlining his version of the supplements saga before a Senate inquiry in Canberra on Friday.

The committee was taking evidence, under parliamentary privilege, in relation to proposed new federal laws to align Australia's anti-doping scheme with the world anti-doping code.

In arguing against the tough new penalties and the stripping of legal rights from athletes, Prendergast said Bombers players had received a raw deal and the scandal had affected their mental health and ability to perform.

"Compare the situation at Essendon to what would happen with workers in another industry, say the construction industry, where construction workers were exposed to asbestos through the lies of their employer," the former Carlton player told the inquiry.

"Would we be talking about punishing those workers, or would we be talking about compensating them?

"It's a very similar situation we are dealing with down in Essendon.

"It's already had a huge toll on these athletes and if they are handed penalties then they have the potential to end their careers" – more ...

O'Keefe, Teague added to Adelaide coaches
Former Sydney midfielder Ryan O'Keefe and ex-St Kilda assistant David Teague have joined the Crows in a revamped coaching panel under new head coach Phil Walsh.

O'Keefe, a double premiership winner at Sydney, will be a midfield development coach.

And Teague, an assistant at the Saints last season who previously worked with Walsh at West Coast, will be the Crows' forward line coach.

The Crows said Scott Camporeale (midfield), Darren Milburn (defence) and Matthew Clarke (ruck) would remain as assistant coaches.

The addition of O'Keefe and Teague follows the departure of dual premiership captain Mark Bickley who has left Adelaide's coaching panel to pursue other opportunities.

Trade week ends; Ryder ends up at Port
Essendon and Port Adelaide have brokered a deal to send Paddy Ryder to the Power, as the trading period closed on Thursday at 2pm AEST with Adelaide signing Hawk duo Luke Lowden and Kyle Cheney.

Yahoo! Sport carried the AAP report: The protracted negotiations over Ryder ceased on Thursday morning, with the Bombers accepting Port's draft pick selections 17 and 37 for the ruckman.

Essendon took selections 17 and 37 for Ryder then on-traded pick No.37 to the Bulldogs for 2008 Brownlow Medallist Adam Cooney who agreed to a two-year Essendon deal, while the Bombers also secured GWS ruckman Jonathan Giles for pick No.53.

The Hawks gave up ruckman Lowden, defender Cheney and three third-round draft selections to the Crows, who handed over draft picks No.31, No.50 and No.68.

Adelaide completed a transfer of draft picks with Geelong in the final trade of the year, the Crows parting with No.10 and No.47 to receive No.14 and No.35.

GWS defender Sam Frost, Sydney's Shane Biggs and Western Bulldogs forward Liam Jones also found new homes in the final hour of trade period.

Melbourne beefed up their defence by signing Frost, swapping pick No.23 in exchange for the 21-year-old, pick No.40 and pick No.53.

The Swans gave Biggs and pick No.39 to the Bulldogs, who sent pick No.37 to the SCG.

Carlton gave up pick No.46 to recruit Jones.

Fremantle, Richmond and West Coast were the only clubs not to play any part in trade period.

The Hawks earlier released midfielder Mitch Hallahan to Gold Coast in exchange for picks No.47 and No.49, but it was the Ryder deal that everyone was waiting for.

The 26-year-old had walked out of Essendon and sought a trade, citing the ongoing supplements scandal at the Bombers as his reason for leaving.

Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley said Ryder, who played 170 games at Essendon, was an excellent addition to this year's beaten preliminary finalists.

"We think Paddy can really add a lot to our team, both to share the ruck duties ... and help out up forward," Hinkley said in a statement on Thursday.

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".
