The Cats’ magnificent era seems to be over

The Cats' magnificent era seems to be over

3 days ago

It has been done regularly over the past couple of years and it would be folly to write Geelong off and say their magnificent era is over, but there were signs in the loss to North Melbourne on the weekend that it might be for real this time. Geelong won 16 games and a win […]

Essendon and Richmond made brave runs in the 2014 AFL season, and they did well to make the finals. The Tigers had nine elimination-final dress rehearsals in a row before the real one against Port, while Essendon again had to deal with issues surrounding the controversial supplements scandal, which has lasted more than 18 months.

Despite the Essendon issue still bubbling away, let’s talk about what we really want to talk about – who will make the eight, take home the Brownlow and secure the Rising Star. In past years, the composition of the top eight has been signed, sealed and delivered going into the final round with the order […]

It’s late August and the mathematical possibility term is being wheeled out as usual with the AFL approaching finals time. Collingwood have 10 wins and are out of the eight on percentage, by a hefty one mind you, but can still make it if they beat Greater Western Sydney this week and then Hawthorn next […]
