September Bound Eagles Gather Steam

By Barry Kennedy, AFANA Reporter in Melbourne
 
St Kilda entered the Telstra Dome on Friday coming off a commanding 103 point belting of Richmond last week. The Eagles had their own cause for optimism even after shocking the football world with a 82 point thrashing of the Adelaide Crows last week. This match like many to come in the next few weeks loomed as a mini Final. For the Eagles this game was big chance to ensure a top two finish and the benefit of two home finals. For the Saints a win was imperative to keep ahead of fellow top four aspirants Sydney, Collingwood and the Western Bulldogs.
 
The opening quarter was a rugged affair with few gaps to be found and sporadic scoring.

Crows To Reassess "The Best"

West Coast Stun The Crows

by Tim Stone, reporting for the AFANA @ Subiaco, WA.

A game that saw West Coast go in as underdogs at home for the first time in 2 years, has had bookies reshaping the odds for the premiership as the Eagles blitzed the flag's favourites and ladder leaders in Adelaide by an astounding 82 points at Subiaco Oval.   A game that most supporters in the West had already conceded, turned out to be anything but a write off as West Coast produced the game of the season in the top of the table clash in round 17.

West Coast, who would have lost 2nd place with a defeat,

Demons Outrun The Dogs

The MCG has fast emerged as an unhappy venue for the opponents of the relentless Melbourne Football Club in 2006. The Demons have won 8 straight at their spiritual home. On Sunday it was time for the Western Bulldogs to take on the tough Demons. Many thought the Bulldogs' distinct style of game, combining exceptional foot speed and slick foot skills, honed under the roof of the Telstra Dome might be the type of game to stretch the Demons.

That was not how the game panned out.  Melbourne laid the foundations for their day with four of the first five goals. Neitz was at the end of a centering kick from Davey before 250-gamer Adem Yze found the ball on the ground and sent it through. Matthew Whelan and Aaron Davey added others. Davey’s goals are usually pulsating and this was no exception,

2007 Schedule
With a new software program in place, the league now has the ability to plan a more equitable schedule based on the Round 22 standings and the finals, rather than basing it on team standings as of Round 15. Currently each team faces either three or four teams twice that were in the top eight at the end of Round 15 the previous season. But with the final eight often changing between Rounds 15-22, that has led to situations where some clubs were advantaged or disadvantaged in terms of their draw for the following season.
 
A case in point was Essendon this season,

Fraser Rubs Salt In Eagles Wounds

The West Coast Eagles had come off a trying week for the match against Collingwood at the Telstra Dome. Former top draft pick Michael Gardiner provided an unwanted distraction for his club and left his own football future in limbo after crashing his car while driving drunk. His subsequent indefinite suspension by the Eagles hierarchy allowed opposing ruckman and fellow number one draft pick, Josh Fraser, free reign to control the game. Collingwood capitalised on this advantage and created many others to carve out a convincing victory.

Swans Revival Begins As Tigers Disappoint

Sydney have put a controversial fortnight behind them to put their 2006 season firmly back on track and remain in the top Eight with a convincing 48-point victory over Richmond at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday night (AEST).
 
Two weeks after coach Paul Roos dismissed his side’s chances of defending their Premiership following a loss to Adelaide and the subsequent fall-out of Nick Davis’ demotion after that match, (which has since dominated the Sydney media), the Swans returned to some semblance of the side that won them last year’s flag, playing committed, uncompromising football to rip the Tigers apart in the third quarter on their away to a 14. 17 (101) to 7.11 (53) win.

CBA First, Clubs Second
The league will not commit to the annual dividend sum for the 16 clubs until negotiations are concluded with the AFLPA over the new CBA, which is now expected to be a done deal by the end of July. It is believed the clubs were pushing for a $32 million disbursement, but may get half or less that sum.
 
As for the CBA negotiations, it is likely the AFLPA will get the pay raises it wanted over the next 5 years. The pay raises will be incremental with a 7% raise in 2007 and 2008, then 5%, 4%, and 4% over the following 3 years. The players' retirement

West Coast Scrape Home, Again

by Tim Stone reporting for AFANA @ Subiaco, WA

It may have been a small consolation, but West Coast have inflicted the knock out blow to Sydney in the much anticipated Grand Final rematch in Round 15, in front of a packed house at Subiaco on Saturday.
 
And didn’t they get their moneys worth...
