8 October 2018 8:22 AM Klemke sees both Demons and Angels in AFL mid-season draft

Canberra Demons coach Kade Klemke is torn. Super excited for his players, but not excited at the prospect of trying to replace a key player mid-season.

7 October 2018 4:36 AM FFV lobbying government for election spending on soccer infrastructure

"Access to better facilities means more people coming into the game – it will address the current, unsustainable situation where thousands of people (12,500 this past season alone) are unable to play the game. "Based on population increases and continued participation increases to 2026, particularly growth from women and girls, Victoria will need up to 420 full size equivalent 10

4 October 2018 10:30 AM AFL draft combine snub powers Richardson to realise dream stateside

But the Dickson College student expected to feel a few nerves when he gets to the combine. Probably not as nervous as he will be when the draft rolls around on November 22, when he'll also be in the middle of his year 12 exams. "I'm very excited. I was disappointed not to make the national combine. I always thought I was a possibility to make the state 5

The doubt was still there as September rolled along, with even Melbourne — who the Eagles smashed by 66 points in a preliminary final — favoured more to win the flag before that clash in Perth, despite playing in their first finals series since 2006. An inaugural interstate club in the AFL, the Eagles weren't favoured to win the 2018 grand final, despite 10

2 October 2018 2:27 AM 2018 AFL Grand Final: Fox Footy host 'ridiculous' to suggest umpires robbed Collingwood

"I just really hope that is not that narrative and the story, the last free kick of the game,” Simpson said to Fox Footy's On the Couch on Monday night. "It would be really disappointing if that’s what people focused on. It’s not the number one thing you take out of the grand final. "There were so many special moments and I think we need to celebrate 9

1 October 2018 6:01 AM AFL trade rumours: Is Tom Langdon joining brother Ed at Freo?

With the football season proper done and dusted for 2018 after one of the greatest AFL grand finals in recent memory on Saturday, the action begins off the field as the 18 clubs look to improve their lists through the trade period and national draft.

28 September 2018 11:31 PM 2018 AFL Grand Final preview: Battle of style and resilience at MCG

Add the significant ankle setbacks to Jack Darling in his best season of AFL and prolific midfielder Luke Shuey, plus the Andrew Gaff suspension fiasco in round 20 that briefly rattled the club and its brand, and it seems a miracle the Eagles even made it this far. Long injury lists expose a club's depth and, left with no other option, West Coast went to the well early 7
