Tigers Claw Victory Over Magpies

Brook “Boris” Kilpatrick Reporting for AFANA from the Melbourne Cricket Ground

A beautiful Melbourne afternoon greeted fans of Collingwood and Richmond as they headed in droves towards the mecca of Australian sport, the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Under enormous pressure after three losses in a row and with a tough draw ahead, Richmond coach Damien Hardwick was in desperate need of a win to avoid another week of speculation about his tenure at the helm of the Tigers. The late withdrawal of small forward Shane Edwards, arguably the Tigers' best player of the season to date, was a cruel blow to Hardwick and Tiger fans prior to game time. Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley would have been feeling confident of victory with the Magpies holding a winning streak against the Tigers that went back as far as Round 19 in 2007.

On the morning of Tuesday May 12, the Australian Rules Football world woke up to the surprising - but not totally unexpected - news that the World Anti-Doping Authority (WADA) has decided to appeal the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) verdicts in the Essendon Bombers' supplements case. The world body will take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), which is based in Lausanne, Switzerland (with courts also located in Sydney and in New York). A statement released by WADA Director-General David Howman said "After a thorough examination of the evidence ... WADA has decided to lodge its independent right of appeal ... As with all pending cases, and adhering to the proper and normal respect for the integrity of the legal process, WADA will refrain from commenting further ... until a decision has been made by CAS."

Note to US Viewers: AFL Coverage on FSP Affected by World Cups
admincms's picture

Note to US viewers of AFL coverage on Fox Soccer Plus: with the approach of the FIFA U-20 World Cup and the Women's World Cup in that round ball sport, the repeats of live AFL matches on FSP will dwindle dramatically over the next few weeks. At this point, you should not expect any repeats from Round 9 through 14. Coverage should begin to return to normal after July 5th. Once the events are underway many weeks have no repeats at all (although FSP have added some additional live matches). Accordingly, we encourage fans to check the TV schedules frequently and make sure you have the correct games and times programmed to record should you not watch live. Do not depend solely on your on-screen guide! DVR, cable, and satellite guides are not updated as often or as accurate as our listing. As is normal, we will be updating our TV schedule page several times a day and we will make sure that any last minute changes are posted as soon as possible. We will update this post if necessary.

Reigning champion Hawthorn traveled north to take on the up-and-coming Greater Western Sydney Giants at Spotless Stadium in Round 6, with all but the staunchest of Giants' fans expecting a Hawthorn victory. Despite losing team leaders Luke Hodge and Jordan Lewis to suspension, the highly skilled Hawks were expected to comfortably account for a Giants team that had been smashed by the West Coast Eagles just a week earlier.
