AFL

Some random moments from Round 18 of the AFL

“Their season’s going to end in a three goal performance for the second year in a row” – Bruce McAvaney on GWS

On that note, here’s an out of context Maccer bird flipping towards Brian Taylor, Wayne Carey and Hamish McLachlan when he was rattling off positives about St Kilda’s season.


Please enjoy the sensual sounds of Gary Ablett Snr’s Sexual Sin playlist

I’m thoroughly impressed that for a bloke who is about 23 stubbies short of a carton upstairs, Gazza Snr can A) Create a YouTube channel, B) Produce a 27 minute video, and C) Correctly insert an apostrophe into a video title.

And he talks about the return of Jesus Christ being imminent.

Clearly he was referring to Gary Jnr making his comeback against the Swans on Sunday.


I like how David Rodan keeps smiling every time he signals for a goal

I hope the AFL randomly go off the boil one day and let a former Dancing With The Stars winner showcase his true talents as a goal umpire.


Scott Pendlebury now holds the Collingwood games record on 314 games.

Collingwood are the Magpies.

3.14 is Pi to 2 digits.

I dunno why I mentioned that, but it’s classic.


No wonder Melbourne nearly faded out in that 4th Quarter

Jayden Hunt was trying to impersonate John Hopoate on Christian Petracca.

Not a great time to use that freakishly long middle finger you’ve got, Jayden.


A compilation of every goal kicked by Ben Stratton in his career

Goal 1, in game 17

And Goal 2, in game 202

I’d like to thank the people that made that possible:

Alastair Clarkson for throwing Stratts forward with a sense of occasion, which he ironically didn’t have in the Buddy vs Fev race to 100 goals in 2008.

Jack Gunston, for giving up a shot at career goal 400, which he probably would’ve converted.

And the umpires for generously paying a kick that went a conservative 12 metres as a mark.


The other farewell goals

Paul ‘The Poo’ Puopolo taking the piss out of The Chief with an arsey dribble kick in front of his family, who formed most of the Adelaide Oval crowd

And of course, Kade Simpson with a vintage run Inside 50, in the slop, in the long sleeves, making us wonder why he’s calling it a day.


Jy Farrar’s first goal on debut for the Suns

This will probably get lost in the sea of emotion about Stratton and Puopolo, but this was a genuinely fantastic debut goal:


Eddie Betts did a good job keeping Daniel Rich to 2 goals

The only problem with it was that Eddie was obviously playing as the small forward, and Richy off halfback.


Was that Steven or Daniel Motlop kicking a big banana at The Gabba

So this was Daniel producing an all-time banana from his big bag of tricks in Round 11 2007:

And here was Steven’s big banana from tonight.

Runs in the family.


Leon Cameron seeing Josh Battle on Friday night


Just what was Marty Gleeson doing here

Completely missing the ball and allowing Alex Neal-Bullen to kick the easiest goal he’ll ever kick, that’s what.


Apparently this isn’t an unrealistic attempt

Jake Stringer was lucky to even get a fingertip to the ball, he completely stops Pig Hibberd from impacting the ball, and to cap it off, Devon Smith goes in and snaps a goal to spark another Essendon run in the last quarter.

That was as unrealistic as the Dons’ expectations of winning a final.


This guy passed Tony ‘Godra’ Modra for the most goals for the Adelaide Crows

Congratulations, Tex.
