The performance of the Bulldogs’ key forwards, summed up by Aaron Naughton

That was a slice so big, Ash Barty stood up and took notice.


I think the favourite horse of the Magpies cheersquad was ‘Mihgt And Power’

Hunter Clark, the one-man army


Falcon Watch: The clean shot through the back of the head from Marcus Adams

The only thing more painful than that was watching Port Adelaide.


Alastair Lynch gets away with a blatant incorrect disposal


Tom Papley wins the Gary Rohan Cup for the Swans


Surely Matty Nichols could’ve tried to cover his arse and claim the Jeremy Cameron non-mark was touched off the boot instead of the now incorrect Not 15 call


When you kick 1 goal from 5 shots and your team loses by 2 points despite pretty much dominating the game


Well, Joel Selwood does now hold a VFL/AFL record, and it doesn’t involve free kicks


The last time Melbourne ended a round on top of the ladder was Round 3, 2005

To give you an idea how long ago that was, Nathan Jones hadn’t debuted, and the Demons, who defeated Geelong on the Friday night, only had the fourth-longest premiership drought at the time:

The Swans were a few months away from ending the record 72 year drought that began with South Melbourne.

The Western Bulldogs were in the midst of a 51-year drought since the flag of 1954, which eventually ended a mere 11 years later.

And the third-longest drought was their opponents on that Friday night in the Cats, who were in year 42 of the 44-year flag drought, just one year ahead of the Demons, who now enjoy the longest reign of futility at 57 years.


It was great to see a high-scoring entertaining game between two traditional rivals on Sunday afternoon

… And West Coast vs Fremantle

The good news for the Eagles is that they can recycle this Shannon Hurn video for next week



And finally, a demonstration from the Eagles on how to sing a club song with a mask on during these disturbing times

As tweeted by the West Coast Eagles

Well, the slight muffle has actually made their monstrosity of a song sound better.
