Round Review – Round 18, 2011 – The Adelaide Woes, Air Walker, and 10 other quick-hit thoughts from Round 18!

Adelaide are in trouble I’ve said enough about Port Adelaide and their woes in my time as a contributor here at AFL Space so, seeing as they had the bye, I’ll give them a reprieve. Not so lucky, though, is the Adelaide Football Club. In what was easily the least-exciting round of season 2011, what […]

A few issues will be looked at on the weekend, but with the Pies playing the Dees on Queens Birthday Monday with players out/in doubt already (Beams injured and Swan/Jolly going to the US for rehab), Dale “Daisy” Thomas could be in trouble after throwing a forearm in a pack situation at the Saints Clinton […]

Round Review – Round 9, 2011 – Revival Round for Richmond and West Coast, while Carlton’s giant mistake cost them a victory

Round 9 could not have begun and ended with more differing story lines. Kicking off Friday night at the MCG, the Carlton Blues took on the Geelong Cats and proved why they are a legitimate top four threat in 2011. The Cats and Blues fought out a spirited battle, with the Blues being a wobbly […]
