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

Grundy Steals The Show On Debut
Frank Ienco reporting for AFANA from Sydney
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

For the first time, one of the AFL’s most controversial, but little-known story is finally told in this gripping and extensive account.

Hurt Dogs Into Top Four

Carlton Blues and the Western Bulldogs have both produced seasons that are out of the norm for their respective clubs. The Western Bulldogs, originally Footscray have never been a top team, winning just the one Premiership. Their style of play has often been labelled ugly, not the fluid white-hot running of the 2006 version. Carlton has traditionally been a league powerhouse with 16 flags to their credit. The current Blues side is a world away from a Premiership threat.

The Bulldogs started the game in a fashion you'd expect a fifth ranked side playing fifteenth, with three quick goals. Daniel Giansiracusa kicked the first after finding space before Rohan Smith converted. Matthew Robbins took a trademark strong mark on a full pace lead for the Bulldogs third. Barnaby French got on the board first for the Blues, before Whitnall took a great one handed mark while holding off an opponent. Big name forwards Brad Johnston and Brendan Fevola scored a goal each for their respective  sides to finish the quarter.
