After a very busy first day of Free Agency things calmed down a bit on day 2, which was more about rumours than action. On top of all free agency talk there was talk of Kurt Tippett leaving the Crows, Mark Blake returning to AFL Football to play with GWS, Sharrod Wellingham moving to West Coast and Brian Lake joining the Hawthorn football club.
For now though lets focus on Free Agency and what we learnt today, we’ll come back to the other news around trade period. (more…)
The AFL Free Agency period begins today and there are already rumours of several deals which are informally done.
Now that Travis Cloke has signed, Brendon Goddard is one of the most talked about players in the league. The strong word is he is heading to Essendon, who are rumored to have offered him a four year deal on superior terms to St Kilda. (more…)

West Coast Eagles supporters must be happy this game is in Western Australia, otherwise this game would get ugly. That’s not to say the Bulldogs have been in earth shattering form but more that the Eagles have been in coach sacking form.
Hopefully for the Eagles supporters the home ground advantage and the pressure on John Worsfold will galvanize the West Coast team and if it does and the Bulldogs come in overconfident they could be a chance. (more…)

There are plenty of people jumping off the Saints and tipping West Coast this week. I guess the logic isn’t too hard to follow; the Saints have lost their last two games whilst the Eagles have won, the game is at Subiaco Oval and Nick Riewoldt is still injured.
When you look a little deeper though you notice that West Coast haven’t exactly beaten the best teams in the competition (Melbourne and Hawthorn) and the Saints have been adjusting to life without Riewoldt, with last weeks game looking closer to the Saints Footy many expect. (more…)

Both West Coast and Hawthorn are sitting at the same win-loss ratio for the season so far at 1-6. The only thing that seems to be separating them is a percentage of 5.01, in the Hawks favour.
By the looks of things both teams are also out of finals contention for season 2010, so can either team gather a few games together to resurrect some pride?
In these two teams previous five encounters the Hawks have won 4 (by an average of 45 points) to the Eagles 1. The Eagles however, have won the most recent match last season at Subiaco by a total of 20 points.
I honestly do not think recent encounters are anything to go by in this match, as both teams are struggling to win games this season, so the match should be a good one to watch.

Those of us in Victoria probably underrate the significance of the WA Derby, it divides an entire state almost to the level of NSW/QLD state of origin rugby rivalry, make no mistake this is one of the biggest rivalries in the AFL. Fremantle are normally the underdogs that come good in these games but this year it looks like the Eagles are the ones in that position, can they make this game a turning point? (more…)
It was the final round of the Home and Away season, and the finals make up wasn’t decided until the closing minutes of the last game. So how did our milestone players go in the last week before September action?
Tim and Jobe Watson – Jobe still wasn’t at his best but was definitely up on his performance against the Dockers. Throughout the day he collected 20 disposals, 5 tackles, 4 clearances, 2 inside 50s and an assist. He should have kicked a goal but sprayed it, and his contested possessions were down on usual with just 5.
David Wojcinski – He had a decent game, but nothing outstanding. 23 disposals for the day with 4 tackles, 3 clearances, 4 inside 50s and 2 assists. 8 of his possessions were contested and in true Geelong style 16 of his disposals were by hand.
Matthew Whelan – Very quiet game really. Only had 4 disposals, and 3 tackles for the game but on the upside he had an efficiency of 100%.
Quinten Lynch – Not a bad game for the big man. He collected 22 disposals, 15 of which were kicks, took 2 contested marks in his 5 total, 3 tackles, 3 clearances, 4 inside 50s and 1 assist. He also contributed 1.2 to the scoreboard, and could have given Chad Fletcher a goal in his final game but decided to go back and have a shot himself.
Ben Hudson – Everyone was expecting Whelan to be the milestone player that didn’t play this week, but Hudson was the only late withdrawal. Yet another one I need to revisit.
Matthew Boyd – He was one of the best for the doggies. He gathered a game high of 35 disposals, took 4 marks, laid 4 tackles, had 4 clearances, 5 inside 50s and 10 contested possessions. His disposal efficiency was 80% which isn’t bad considering how much he had the ball.
