Luke’s Look – Round 10, 2012 – Best! Round! Ever! I’d go as far as saying that round 10 was one of the best rounds in recent memory, from my point of view anyway. With so much happening throughout the weekend, seemingly in every match played, let’s get straight into it with the recap of [...]
Round Review – Round 7, 2012 It’s staggering that we’re already 7 rounds into the 2012 AFL Season. This round was a much more difficult week to tip a winner, with upsets seemingly everywhere, so let’s take a look at the events from the round just gone. Round 7 started in conventional style, with Hawthorn [...]
Round Review – Round 2, 2012 In contrast to the sensational opening round last week, the Easter weekend of AFL didn’t exactly deliver on expectations.

Specifically, what player has been the best pick-up by your club? I’m focusing on Season 2000 up to present day, as anything prior is essentially irrelevant to the [...]
Following the excitement of last week’s hypothetical ”Equalisation Draft”, we’re back to a more traditional format this round - with a look at the most recent form of the AFL’s finals contenders. Plus, more random statistics than even Bruce McAvaney would know what to do with! So let’s get straig . Collingwood 1 <NO CHANGE> . A business-like performance, but would Mick Malthouse be happy with the Pies being unable to out-score the Suns in the second half? I'd think not, but they still managed a 54-point win against the new boys. The Pies are travelling very well, on top of the ladder. [...]

In a mouth-watering (yet cruel) exercise, this week I’ve taken the liberty of drafting a player to every AFL club – from a rival team – to help bolster their stocks.
