The AFL in 2010 is a footy supporters nightmare, unless you support Collingwood that is. The Pies are on top, and worse than that for the rest of the competition, they appear to be the real deal with depth that surely cannot be sustainable in an environment of salary caps and two new clubs entering.

After 25 years, Australian Olympic legend, and all-round top bloke, James Tomkins, is packing away his oars. On the day of his 45th birthday, he thought it appropriate to make his announcement on Melbourne Radio SEN.
It was back in about 1982 that Ron Barassi and Barry Richardson headed to Ireland for what became known as the ‘Irish experiment’. They were seeking tall players who might be able to ‘convert’ to Australian Football.
And so the games have been played and won, with Tasmania taking out Division 2. The South Pacific and World XVIII squads showed something, and they weren’t entirely humiliated. So what’s next then?
With the last month of the home and away season upon us this week, the run home for the clubs in contention is all important. At the top of the table, Collingwood and Geelong look pretty safe to secure first and second and ensure Melbourne based ‘home’ finals in week one.
