Lemon’s winners and losers, AFL Round 18.1

Lemon's winners and losers, AFL Round 18.1

5 days ago

Bye, bye, boilover. Get the spuds off the heat because the pan is frothing. There were upsets galore across the AFL, and we only had half a round. The north end of the table changes by the day. No top side has avoided a big upset. Only the Swans got theirs done early. Port lost […]

Lemon's winners and losers, AFL Round 17

14 Jul 2014

No doubt: Round 17′s biggest losers were Port Adelaide, followed closely by Port Adelaide, Port Adelaide, and the teal-and-black boys from the Power. Next were any teams historically associated with magpies. Jesus, what happened? Earlier this season Port were reminding me of the Cats of 2007 – a young and unproven team with plenty of […]

Lemon's winners and losers, AFL Round 15

30 Jun 2014

Last week I said Adelaide’s AFL season was done. In Round 15 they extended a middle finger in my direction, at the same time reshaping the prospects of the top four. Forget the biggest win of the round: the Crows pulled off one of the biggest of the year, downing local rivals and ladder-leaders Port […]

Geelong on the brink, seeking hope in the stars

Geelong on the brink, seeking hope in the stars

28 Jun 2014

As entertaining as their win was on Friday night, Geelong Football Club are standing on the edge of a muddy slope, unsure whether they’ll slip. Right now, their stars look faded. As the television commentary pointed out, Jonathan Brown’s retirement this week left only seven triple-premiership players in the AFL. All of them took the […]
