James Hird returns to prepare for 2015
James Hird's return to Essendon has been confirmed by the club, although the currently-suspended coach will take up a limited role for the remainder of the 2014 season.

ABC Sport reports: Hird, who has spent time overseas since receiving his AFL ban in 2013, will not be present in the Bombers' coaching box or at training for the remainder of 2014, and instead will be tasked with preparing for the 2015 season away from the playing group.

Essendon chairman Paul Little expressed his delight at welcoming Hird back to the club from August 25, but stressed the parameters of his return.

"We have all agreed that when James is eligible to return to the club on August 25, James' focus will be entirely on the 2015 season – he will not be in the coaching box or have an active coaching role at training.

"In that time period between August 25 until our final game of the season, James will take the opportunity to begin planning the upcoming pre-season, list management, recruiting and preparation for 2015 away from the club."

Bombers appoint Xavier Campbell as CEO
Essendon also revealed 34-year-old Xavier Campbell had been promoted to the role of chief executive at the club.

Campbell had spent time working as the club's chief operating officer and general manager of projects and partnerships, and says that his new appointment is an honour.

"We had an extremely talented and experienced group of candidates from a range of different business and sporting backgrounds to choose from, but as a club we felt Xavier had displayed the necessary qualities and business acumen to make the step up to the role of CEO,” Essendon chairman Paul Little said.

“Xavier has been an integral member of the club’s senior management for the past five years, and over the last eight months has shown tremendous leadership, work ethic and vision as interim CEO.”

 

 

 

Friday, July 25

The 1948 VFL premiership flag missing from the Melbourne FC has been found in southern New South Wales town Moama on the Murray River opposite Echuca.

The flag surfaced on eBay this week with a starting price of $80,000.

ABC Sport reports: The pennant was awarded to the Demons after defeating Essendon by 39 points in a rematch after the league's first ever grand final draw.

Acting Superintendent Michael Tranby said the grand final icon was seized at a home in Moama on Wednesday.

The flag was officially listed as missing in 2000 but it was not known exactly when it disappeared.

Police were investigating how the flag came to be in NSW and have told club officials the pennant would be returned once the investigation ends.

Ruckman Tom Hickey on Thursday became the seventh St Kilda player to be ruled out for the remainder of the season because of knee tendonitis.

Hickey, 23, has played six games in 2014 for a career total of 30.

Beau Maister (shoulder), Eli Templeton (arm), Arryn Siposs (shoulder), Tom Lee (shoulder), Daniel Markworth (hamstring) and Jimmy Webster (foot) also won't play again this season.
Last-placed St Kilda have a 4-13 record and have a bye this weekend.

The GWS Giants have suffered a fourth season-ending injury in little more than a week, with luckless key defender Tim Mohr requiring a left knee reconstruction.

Adrian Warren of AAP reported: The 25-year-old Tasmanian was hurt against Geelong last Saturday and became the sixth Giant ruled out for the rest of the AFL season.

Last week, gun young midfielders Lachie Whitfield (shoulder and foot) and Stephen Coniglio (thumb) were ruled out.

On Tuesday, the club announced star forward Jeremy Cameron would sit out the rest of the year and undergo knee and ankle surgery.

Mohr is the third Giants key back to suffer a season-ending injury after Aidan Corr (shoulder) and Nick Haynes (ankle).

Two other defenders – Heath Shaw and Curtly Hampton – are also out injured, with the Giants never being able to field their first-choice back six this year, following early-season injuries to Mohr and co-captain Phil Davis (kidney).

Hampton (shoulder) has missed the last six games and is likely to be unavailable for two more.

The Giants don't have the option of promoting their one remaining rookie list player, midfielder Sam Schulz, as he is sidelined with a rib problem.

The expanding injury toll shouldn't get any larger this week, as both senior and reserve sides have a bye.

Brisbane has reportedly appointed Greg Swann as the club's new CEO.

Fairfax Media reported on Thursday that Swann would be announced as Malcolm Holmes' replacement as soon as Friday.

Swann stepped down as Carlton CEO in June after seven years in the role.

Thursday, July 24

Suspended Essendon coach James Hird arrived back in Melbourne on Tuesday following recent months in France at a business training school.
It has been reported he has engaged in talks with Essendon officials on his return to the game when his AFL suspension is completed at Round 23.

Kane Cornes will play on into a 15th season following signing on with Port Adelaide for 2015.
The 31-year-old has played 285 matches and is Port's games record-holder.

The AFL has warned clubs not to comment on potential Match Review Panel or Tribunal matters in a way that might affect the case in the wake of the Brian Lake-Drew Petrie hearing.
Peter Ryan writes on the AFL webpage: The AFL wrote to all clubs to reiterate that it was important to be cautious when asked about incidents that the MRP might assess.

Port Adelaide legend Warren Tredrea has been appointed as an All Australian selector, AFL general manager of football operations Mark Evans confirmed on Wednesday.
The nine-man All Australian selection panel consists of Gillon McLachlan (chairman), Kevin Bartlett, Luke Darcy, Evans, Danny Frawley, Glen Jakovich, Cameron Ling, Matthew Richardson and Tredrea.
The panel, along with Kevin Sheehan, also chooses the winner of the NAB AFL Rising Star Award.

Surprise packets
Since the half-way mark of this season, there have been nine matches where a side has been defeated by another side six or more places below it on the ladder at the time they met.

This is a relatively high figure given there have been just six rounds beyond the half-way mark.

The figures for recent seasons for a full quota of matches in the second half of the season are as follows:

 

2014

9 to part way through Rd 18

2013

2012

5

2011

2010

2009

2008

2007

2014 so far

Nine different teams have inflicted the damage. Port Adelaide (three times, in consecutive weeks) and North (twice) have been multiple victims.

In Rd 15, Adelaide 11th d Port Adelaide 1st
In Rd 16, Essendon 10th d Port Adelaide 2nd
In Rd 17, Richmond 12th d Port Adelaide 3rd.

In Rd 15, Brisbane 17th d North Melbourne 7th
In Rd 18, Carlton 14th d North Melbourne 6th.

Previous seasons

In 2013, Geelong was the victim three times, while North inflicted damage on two occasions. The Cats still managed to finish second on the ladder.

In 2009, Essendon was the victim three times, but still managed to cling to eighth place and a finals spot.

In 2007, West Coast was the victim three times, and Brisbane was the spoiler on three occasions.

Summing-up

Instances of lower-placed sides springing surprises are not rare, but 2014 may end up being a year when they are more frequent than usual.

Hawks take on Swans for Club Champion crown
This weekend Hawthorn take on the Sydney for the title of "Club Champion"

After Hawthorn relinquished the title to Geelong in Round 5 it was then won by Port Adelaide in Round 6 before Sydney defeated Port in Round 13.

In three of the last four matches Sydney have conceded exactly 7.9-51 v Rch R14, v WCE R16 and Car R17 – more ...

 

 

 

Wednesday, July 23

The Williamstown club has become the first multiple winner of the Foxtel Cup after crushing West Perth by 63 points in the Grand Final held at Kardinia Park on Tuesday night in chilly conditions of five degrees.

The AFL webpage reported the 10.11 to 1.2 victory added another trophy to the Seagulls' cabinet to sit alongside their 2011 triumph, the inaugural Foxtel Cup season. The win also boosted the club’s coffers by $100,000 to help with their 150th anniversary celebrations.

It was a significant achievement for Williamstown in its first year back as a standalone club in the VFL since 2000, following alignments with AFL clubs Collingwood and the Western Bulldogs – the latter ending last season.

It was also the second Foxtel Cup triumph for Williamstown coach Andy Collins, who led West Adelaide to last year’s title over Claremont.

MRP, Round 18
Robinson takes two weeks; Adams a reprimand
Carlton's Mitch Robinson has accepted a two-match suspension resulting from an incident involving North Melbourne's Leigh Adams during last Friday night's match at Docklands.

ABC Sport reported: Robinson was charged with engaging in rough conduct with Adams during the first quarter of the Blues' upset 23-point win.

It is Robinson's third suspension of the season and he will miss the Blues' upcoming fixtures against Fremantle and Gold Coast.

Adams was also cited by the MRP for striking the Blues' Simon White and accepted a reprimand.

Tribunal – 2014

Steve Trigg moves to Carlton as CEO
Steven Trigg today announced he's quitting the Crows to move to Carlton to replace Greg Swann, who resigned as the Blues' chief in May this year.

Steve Larkin for Yahoo! Sport reported: Trigg, who will depart Adelaide in four weeks, returned to work in July last year after being suspended for six months by the AFL in 2012.

He was also fined $50,000 after pleading guilty to three draft and salary cap breaches related to the re-signing of Kurt Tippett in 2009.

The Crows were also fined $300,000 and barred from the opening two rounds of the 2012 draft for the breaches while Tippett, who moved to Sydney at the end of 2012, was fined $50,000 and banned for 11 games.

Adelaide's dual premiership player Nigel Smart, currently the club's chief operating officer, is being touted to replace Trigg but Crows chairman Rob Chapman said the club would look at external candidates.

Dean Cox – West Coast champion retires
West Coast champion Dean Cox has announced he will retire from AFL ranks at the end of the season.

Cox has played a club-record 286 games during his glittering 14-year career. He made his debut on April 8 2001 against Sydney at Subiaco Oval.

Cox's retirement means he will finish just short of the 300-game mark. If the six-time All-Australian plays the Eagles' remaining six games, Cox will finish on 292.

West Coast skipper Darren Glass already announced his retirement on June 11 due to hip and ankle problems.

Collarbone surgery for Joe Daniher
Essendon forward Joe Daniher "could be back within three weeks" after deciding to have surgery on his fractured collarbone.

ABC Sport reported Daniher suffered a small crack after Cale Hooker fell on him at training, and missed the Bombers' seven-point win over the Bulldogs on Sunday afternoon.

Essendon doctor Bruce Reid said the surgery would shorten Daniher's time on the sidelines. “Joe will have a plate and screws inserted to strengthen his clavicle,” Reid said.

“It’s not invasive surgery and the positive news is it will shorten Joe’s recovery period. I would say Joe could be back within three weeks.”

Daniher will undergo surgery on Tuesday.

The Bombers have a bye this weekend before facing the Swans on Friday night August 1 at the SCG.

MRP from Round 18 (first part of split round)
CARLTON v NORTH MELBOURNE
MITCH ROBINSON (Car) charged with rough conduct – negligent, medium impact, high contact – against LEIGH ADAMS (NM) in Q1. Even with an early guilty plea, due his previous poor record the MRP imposed a two-game suspension.
LEIGH ADAMS (NM) charged with a Level Two striking offence – intentional, low impact, body contact – against SIMON WHITE (Car) in Q1. An early guilty plea and a five-year good record will draw a reprimand and added demerit points.

Other incidents assessed –

JAY SCHULZ (PA) for striking LYNDEN DUNN (Mel) in Q1 – force used was below that to bring a report.
PAUL STEWART (PA) (Mel) and NATHAN JONES (Mel) in Q1 – the MRP viewed that Stewart's contact with Jones was caused by circumstances outside the control of the Port Adelaide player. No further action required.
BERNIE VINCE (Mel) and KANE CORNES (PA) in Q2 – force used was below that to bring a report.

Tribunal – 2014

Back of guernseys to remain without names
The AFL will not introduce player surnames as a permanent feature on guernseys, with the lack of space available on jumpers presenting "practical limitations".

Nathan Schmook for the AFL webpage noted: Fans reacted positively to a round five trial of the concept, but the League has decided not to change the traditional look of AFL jumpers.

General manager of commercial operations Darren Birch said the concept was good in theory but the trial earlier this season highlighted hurdles in making it work.

"The unique cut of AFL guernseys restricts the size of lettering that can be used and this in turn limits the legibility of the player names for fans at the ground, and to a lesser extent, for those watching on television or via other media channels," Birch said.

"There is only limited space available on the back of match day guernseys for suitably sized names due to player numbers, club acronyms and sponsor logos.

"The trial demonstrated that while the concept of player names might be a good one in theory, in practice it does not work as well as we would like."

North made an art form of choking last season. This year they have made an art of erraticism. Around half North’s results this year have flown in the face of “form”. In the past month the situation is more marked than ever.

The table outlines what’s happened. It is my interpretation. Others may view North’s “form” a bit differently, but the overall intent is the same.

AFL top of football ladder
Peter Lalor, The Australian, July 18:

In a federation of states that couldn’t agree on the railway gauge it was inevitable that there would be an even more passionate divide over sporting codes. A survey conducted by The Australian, however, points to an emerging consensus and a worrying trend for rugby union.

The AFL is recognised as the national code by 55 per cent of respondents. Perhaps a parliamentary majority at best, but it’s more than the other three combined.

The survey asked: “Which one of the following do you think can best claim to be Australia’s national football code?” The brand they call the indigenous game was well out in front of rugby league (23 per cent), soccer (12 per cent) and rugby union (5 per cent).

The AFL seems to be doing a better job recruiting new audiences with 60 per cent of 18-34 year olds seeing it as the national code.

Thanks to Leonard Colquhoun for nominating this quote.

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".
