No guarantee Rohan was fit enough to play anyway.

Richmond Tigers vs Geelong Cats: AFL preliminary final forecast

Average age of list is such a useless and often misleading stat. Some teams have a bunch of 18/19 yr olds on the list but they aren’t getting any games so why even count them? It’s who is getting games, who is influencing games and who is nearing the end that matters, not unblooded teens that may or may not end up being something.
If Ablett and Taylor retire (both possible) this year, Cats average age will drop half a year or more. Only takes a couple outliers to pull it up or down.

The Eagles' uneven premiership defence ends without much fury

“Cats finished on top of the ladder with one more win (16), but with a much lower percentage.”

Cats had the highest percentage of anyone. Almost 20% higher than the next best.

As they say: It’s all fun and games til someone loses an eye.

Why the AFL's case against Toby Greene is set to fall apart

He has already admitted to tampering with his sample. That isn’t gossip, that is fact. The penalty for sample tampering is 4 years.

Willie Rioli speaks out after ASADA suspension

What he took or may have taken is completely irrelevant. He tampered with the sample he was supposed to give. That’s akin to cheating on a test.

Why tamper with your sample if you have nothing to hide? Tampering with sample is worse than just hoping you don’t test positive.

Why couldn’t Collingwood wear white shorts? It is one of their two colours also.

Hoops versus bars … what is there be confused about?

Dangerfield 'hungrier than ever' for elusive flag

Danger took LESS money to come to Geelong. He isn’t even the highest paid in the side. He could have gotten way more if he was open to going anywhere.

Facts … they matter.

MCG and marvel are both in Melbourne and Richmond is a Melbourne team. Geelong is not a Melbourne team. They are from Geelong.

'The system's wrong': You'll never guess what Chris Scott is complaining about again

I still make time for going to the footy. Only thing that keeps me sane sometimes. But no time for reading and commenting much.

Gold Coast player facing four-year ban after testing positive to cocaine on game day

Selling house, moving, working 6 or 7 days a week and various other things I won’t get into here but suffice it to say I have had little free time lately

Port plays all their home games at Adelaide oval in Adelaide. Richmond plays all their home games in Melbourne. North plays in Melbourne and Tassie BY CHOICE and because they GET PAID to play there.
Wanna try again?

Why would a Geelong team play its home games in a different city?

Cats will wait on Cameron next year 😉 Good luck to Hawks with Patton.

Giant Patton's AFL season over: Cameron

Can’t help but wonder who kicked him in the jewels.

Why should free kick counts be ‘even’? It makes no logical sense to expect they would be.

It's now or never for Leon Cameron's Giants

I’ll go out on a limb and prognosticate that GWS will finally sack Leon Cameron after meekly exiting finals in week one and Ross Lyon will end up driving the Ferrari like its a Yugo.

but then you’ll just complain that the 6th last round was fixtured wrong. Stadium operators are not just going to hold the entire footy season open for whatever day the AFL deems worthy of using the ground.
