MRP & Tribunal – Round 5:
High hit by Douglas draws two-game penalty
Adelaide argued vehemently that Richard Douglas was not responsible for Callan Ward's concussion, but on Tuesday night the AFL Tribunal took a different view and gave the mid-fielder a two-game ban.

Rob Forsaith for AAP reported: The merits of the bump were thrown into further doubt, with Douglas' hit on the Greater Western Sydney co-captain deemed to be reckless, high contact and high impact.

That would ordinarily result in a four-match suspension (425 demerit points), which could have been reduced to two weeks on account of Douglas' good record and a guilty plea.

The case had been referred directly to the Tribunal, who agreed a penalty of 250 demerit points (two weeks) was just.

Douglas will in effect miss three weeks of football, with the Crows' bye coming in round eight after clashes with Western Bulldogs and Melbourne.

COLLINGWOOD v NORTH MELBOURNE
SCOTT THOMPSON (NM) charged with striking TRAVIS CLOKE (Col) in Q1.
Thompson took the early guilty plea and a one-game penalty.

SYDNEY v FREMANTLE
HAYDEN BALLANTYNE (Fre) charged with striking RHYCE SHAW (Syd) in Q2.
HAYDEN BALLANTYNE (Fre) charged with misconduct (kneeing) against RHYCE SHAW (Syd) in Q2. Ballantyne took the early guilty plea on both charges and accepted the MRP penalty of a one-match suspension.

Note: Where a player is charged with multiple offences during a match, under Tribunal rules the points for each offence where the player accepts a penalty are added together. For each amount of 100 points, there must be one match served as a result.

ESSENDON v ST KILDA
ADAM SCHNEIDER (StK) charged with striking MARK BAGULEY (Ess) in Q2.
Schneider took the early guilty plea and a one-match penalty.

WEST COAST v PORT ADELAIDE
DARREN GLASS (WCE) charged with rough conduct against CHAD WINGARD (PA) in Q4.
Glass took the early guilty plea and a one-match suspension.

ADELAIDE v GWS GIANTS
RICHARD DOUGLAS (Ade) charged with rough conduct against CALLAN WARD (GWS) in Q2.
The matter was directly referred to the Tribunal for its determination and Douglas cannot accept an early plea on this matter.
The Tribunal on Tuesday night determined the hit on Ward by Douglas was reckless, high contact and high impact. His unblemished record worked in his favour and the Tribunal along with his guilty plea suspended Douglas for two matches.
TOBY GREENE (GWS) charged with striking RICHARD DOUGLAS (Ade) in Q2.
Greene took the early guilty plea and a one-match penalty.

AFL-NAB Rising Star, Round 5
Adelaide midfielder Matt Crouch, who turned 19 on Monday, has won the round five NAB AFL Rising Star nomination after his standout 28-possession effort in the Crows' win over Greater Western Sydney on Sunday.

The midfielder joined the Crows through last year's draft as a renowned ball-winner and was headed for an even bigger breakout game before being subbed at 3/4 time with hamstring cramp.

A premier performer in the TAC Cup last year for the North Ballarat Rebels, where he averaged 37 disposals an outing, Crouch joined his brother Brad at the Crows. However the pair is yet to play a home and away game together after Brad's leg fracture in round two.

Brad Crouch was one of four Adelaide nominees for the NAB AFL Rising Star last year, alongside Sam Kerridge, Rory Laird and Luke Brown.

Easter firsts

(Dates quoted are Easter Sundays)

1968    15 April. Full round of matches on Easter Monday as agreement defining seasons did not permit play on Easter Saturday.

1973    22 April. Round 3 scheduled. This was the first time that a round other than Round 1 or 2 had been played at Easter.

1987    19 April. First Easter Sunday game. Bri 16.18 v Fit 20.9 at Carrara.

1989    26 March. The most recent year when no VFL/AFL football has been scheduled during Easter.

1994    3 April. First Easter Sunday game in Melbourne. Rch 20.14 v Bri 11.6 at the MCG.

2000    23 April. Round 7 – the most advanced round to be played at Easter. The programming was early that year to fit in with the Sydney Olympic Games.

2011    24 April. Round 5 was staged across five days, starting Thursday and ending Tuesday 26 April, that day proclaimed as a public holiday because Easter Monday coincided with Anzac Day. On 26 April Gee 17.15 v Haw 15.8.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

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.

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.

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".

Tasmania: exploring the improbalities

Letter to Editor Kevin

Most of Footystats fans, being largely Mainlanders by nature, inclination or geography, may be quite unaware of the latest nonsense down here about “AFL in Tasmania”, much of it, sadly, seemingly deriving from a sense of entitlement to a “team of our own”. The Hobart / southern based Mercury has launched a ‘One Team [sic] One State’ push for a Melbourne-based AFL club to play eight  -  yes, eight, as in the “8” / “VIII” / :::: kind of eight  -  ‘Home’ games in Tasmania -

http://www.themercury.com.au/sport/afl/afl-says-it-prefers-one-team-playing-here-as-afl-tasmania-officially-hands-over-the-reins/story-fnj4f7h7-1226885378006

Now you fellow Footystats subscribers are canny folk, and not easily deluded by nonsense such as this, which you’ll have already worked out will entail a Melbourne CEO saying something like this to a future AGM: “Next season, or maybe the season after, your team will be playing eight Home games down there in Taz-zee, which gives our great club a more poly-situational branding and an exciting new demographic to . . . [speaker flees in terror under a hail of shoes and other items]”.   Equally, you can easily imagine how this will be more generally received, remembering, as you would, the ructions of the 1996 Hawthorn-Melbourne merger proposal, particularly the magnificent Marlon ‘Friends! Romans! Countrymen!’ Brando-esque performance of HFC 300 gamer Don Scott.

The kybosh could not have been quicker, and it came from those who should know from experience, from the leaders of the two clubs which actually do play Home games here, as spoken by North Melbourne CEO Carl Dilena's "an eight-game model would have some serious challenges with [a club's] membership base", and Hawthorn CEO Stuart Fox's "[club boards] would probably be kicked out by their members" -

http://www.themercury.com.au/sport/afl/hawthorn-and-north-melbourne-both-reject-afl-plans-for-one-team-to-play-eight-games-in-tasmania/story-fnj4f7h7-1226887131428

Which means that the One Team [sic] - One State urgers have to find that one ‘courageous’ Melbourne-based AFL CEO who reckons this proposal will not be rejected by the club's members, and who is confident of not being kicked out by those same members.
