If we can help Hird, we will: AFLPA

THE AFL Players’ Association has offered its support to James Hird in the wake of his overdose.

The Essendon great was taken by ambulance and treated for an overdose at the Cabrini Hospital last Wednesday night before he was transferred to a specialist mental health treatment centre.

Association chief Paul Marsh confirmed on Monday that the players union has contacted “someone close to” Hird and, like for all former AFL players, is on call if needed.

MCG car parks closed again for weekend

Demon despair, stray Dogs, Crow a show Callum Twomey and Romy Stephens bring you all the latest news on Footy Feed

YARRA Park will be unavailable for parking for this weekend's Carlton-Sydney and Geelong-Collingwood clashes at the MCG because of ongoing wet conditions.

The car parks were also closed for the Essendon-Collingwood blockbuster on Anzac Day because of rain.

The Melbourne Cricket Club is manager of the car parks, and has decided that the majority of the park would risk damage if used widely for vehicles this weekend. 

“We understand that the loss of parking near the MCG is inconvenient for many patrons, however we have made this decision as early as possible to ensure fans attending events this weekend have sufficient time to adjust their transport plans,” said MCC spokesperson Prue Cichello.

A limited number of spaces will be made available for disabled permit holders,...

'They'll be coming right at me': Mumford

AFL 2017 Round 05 - Sydney v GWS Giants

Shane Mumford was outstanding against the Swans

SHANE Mumford is preparing himself for a huge physical test against the Western Bulldogs on Friday night, and it's hardly surprising that the Greater Western Sydney star can't wait.

Mumford, who is coming off a best on ground performance in last week's Sydney derby against the Swans in which he amassed 62 hit-outs and won the Brett Kirk Medal, will have mobile big men Tom Campbell and Tom Boyd to contend with in Canberra, with help from Rory Lobb.

The Giant should have far more physical presence than the pair of Bulldogs, with his contested work around stoppages one of his great strengths, and it's an area in which the 2014 club champion is always aiming to dominate.

"You always hope to be able to find an advantage somehow and that’s (my physicality) what I've got, so we'll see how we go, you can let me know at the end of the game," he...

Veteran Boyd to miss as Dogs set for changes

AFL 2017 Round 04 - North Melbourne v Western Bulldogs

Matthew Boyd will miss Friday night's clash against the Giants

THE WESTERN Bulldogs will make at least two changes for Friday night's clash with Greater Western Sydney after veteran Matthew Boyd and premiership teammate Shane Biggs both failed to make the trip to Canberra.

Boyd, a noticeable absentee when the Dogs had a light training run in crisp conditions at UNSW Canberra Oval on Thursday afternoon, has been rested, while fellow defender Biggs has been axed for the second time in three weeks after struggling for form so far this season.

Captain Bob Murphy, along with deputy Easton Wood, Jason Johannisen, Josh Dunkley and Fletcher Roberts, were all on light duties doing stationary ball work, but don't look to be in any doubt to face the Giants.

Premiership midfielder Caleb Daniel and youngster Bailey Williams are the two likely inclusions, with Bailey Dale also on the track as...

TEAMS: Swallow, Thomas axed; Cyril hurt

- North loses patience with Andrew Swallow and Lindsay Thomas
- Hip injury forces out Cyril Rioli from clash with St Kilda
- Eagle Sam Mitchell returns for his first Western Derby

NORTH Melbourne has made a statement at selection as it seeks to turn its winless start to the season around, with stalwarts Andrew Swallow and Lindsay Thomas dropped for Saturday night's clash against Gold Coast.

Swallow, a former captain and three-time club champion, and Thomas make way for midfielder Shaun Higgins and half-forward Jed Anderson in a bombshell selection.

The omitted pair has played a combined 414 games for the Kangaroos, but both have been desperately out of form this season, with Swallow averaging 16 possessions and Thomas booting just two goals from five games. 

"Both are outstanding professionals and they will respond in the way we’ve come to expect of them," coach Brad Scott told the...

Calvin's Fantasy captains for round six Our expert is back to pick the best options for double points in Fantasy this week

AFL 2017 Round 05 - St Kilda v Geelong

Aaron Black brought up a Fantasy ton last week and should be high on your shopping list

YES, IT would be nice to cut some of the under-performing premium players, but sometimes we just need to stick to the plan.

So what is the plan?

Every week we seem to be thrown a curveball or two when the teams drop and there is a forced trade that upsets the plans we have had in place all week.

Thankfully it has been a short week and those trade ideas had 48 hours less thought than other weeks.

Fantasy's new dual-position players

Looking across a lot of teams last week, despite it being a high scoring round for many, there were a lot of DNPs featuring in squads. Benches are sparse and as a result, cash generation is still looking to be quite challenging this season.

Trengove breaks silence over pub altercation

AFL 2017 Round 05 - Port Adelaide v Cartlon

Power utility Jackson Trengove

PORT Adelaide utility Jackson Trengove has spoken for the first time about an altercation where he was punched in the face coming to the aid of a young woman.

The incident occurred outside the Moseley Bar and Kitchen in Glenelg – owned by Power teammates Travis Boak and Robbie Gray, and former Adelaide defender Ben Rutten – at 12.30am on Sunday morning.

Trengove was at the bar with other Power players celebrating the 21st birthday of Port Adelaide academy player Teejay Halkias.

"It's one of those situations you don't want to get yourself in," Trengove told Triple M.

"In my defence, I was thinking I was doing the right thing and I think I was doing the right thing.

"I was down there for a friend's 21st, was with all my family and I had my daughter's christening the next day.

Thomas hopes demotion 'is just a one-week stint'

AFL 2017 Round 04 - North Melbourne v Western Bulldogs

Lindsay Thomas has been dropped for this week's clash against the Suns

DUMPED Kangaroos forward Lindsay Thomas hopes to be back at AFL level by next week as he prepares to play his first VFL match in almost two years on Saturday.

Thomas, 29, played his 200th game in the inaugural Good Friday clash with reigning premiers the Western Bulldogs, but has failed to kick a goal in four of his five games this year.

Coach Brad Scott lost patience with him and former captain Andrew Swallow, a triple club champion, after North Melbourne lost by five points or fewer for the third time this season last week.

"I have (been told why I was dropped) and obviously I'm disappointed that I don't get to play on Saturday with the boys," Thomas said on the Marngrook Footy Show on Thursday night.

"I know what I have to do to get back in the seniors and along with Andrew, we'll go back to Werribee on...

Eddie Betts' 10 best goals, and how he kicked them

Eddie's top 10 goals, ranked by you Here are the 10 best goals of Eddie Betts' brilliant career, according to your votes

AGAINST Richmond in Sunday night's blockbuster, Eddie Betts can become just the fifth active player to reach 500 AFL goals.

Ahead of the milestone, we presented you with the unique challenge of judging Betts' very best.

The results are in the video above. Click to watch and enjoy the cream of Eddie's goals from 10 to 1, as ranked by you

To toast Betts' milestone, here we take a statistical look at one of footy's most brilliant forwards, and the free agency move which transformed his career.

To join the 500 club on Sunday, Betts needs just two goals (Tiger Jack Riewoldt, on 497, can join him in the same game).

That's a touch above his career average of 1.9 goals per game, but short of the rate at which he's been banging them in since switching from Carlton in...

In the mix for AFL round six

Forward Josh Jenkins will have a fitness test on his injured ribs to see if he returns for Sunday's twilight blockbuster with Richmond at Adelaide Oval. Jenkins has missed the past three games with fractured ribs and cartilage damage sustained in the round two win against Hawthorn. If Jenkins returns, utility Andy Otten could return to the backline with key defender Daniel Talia set to be sidelined with a hamstring injury. However, if Jenkins fails a fitness test, it could open the door for mature-aged recruit Jono Beech to make his AFL debut. Beech was the Crows' player of the year in the SANFL last season. Beech could also come into the side if Riley Knight is ruled out with a hamstring injury. In his first game back from an adductor injury, veteran midfielder Scott Thompson had a team-high 21 possessions for the Crows in a 54-point loss to Central Districts in the SANFL. Defender...

Control your temper: GWS warns Greene, Shaw

AFL 2017 Round 05 - Sydney v GWS Giants

Toby Greene and Isaac Heeney have words during the Giants' win over the Swans

GREATER Western Sydney coach Leon Cameron denies his club has a discipline problem, but has told hot-headed All Australian stars Toby Greene and Heath Shaw to control their aggression.

Greene and Shaw were involved in two incidents during last week's win over the Swans which have taken some of the focus off the club's first blockbuster Friday night game in Canberra.

The Match Review Panel cleared Greene for his headbutt on Sydney's Isaac Heeney, and Shaw came under criticism for an inappropriate sledge on Tom Papley, for which he later apologised.

Cameron revealed he had spoken to both men about their onfield behavior over the past two weeks, in particular Greene, who has come close to attracting the attention of the MRP on more than one occasion.

"He's such a competitor (but) he's got to make sure that in...

AFL 2017 Round 05 - Gold Coast v Adelaide

Daniel Talia remains a chance to face the Tigers on Sunday

ADELAIDE defender Daniel Talia remains a chance to overcome a hamstring injury and play against Richmond in Sunday's clash of two unbeaten sides.

The All Australian backman limped off the ground early in last week's win against Gold Coast but scans have shown no serious damage.

Crows-Tigers not just about Rory v Dusty

Crows high performance manager Matt Hass said the early prognosis was good for Talia.

"He has recovered quite well," Hass said.

"We expect him to do some of the training with the team and we’ll test his availability for the weekend.

"He (Talia) had a little run around today and he's been getting up to pretty good speed," teammate Rory Sloane told reporters on Wednesday.

"That is one we will just assess tomorrow. Obviously he came...

Team of the week, R5: Did we get it right?

RUCKMEN, resurgences and the continuation of three unbeaten runs were the talking points from the Anzac weekend, and are reflected in the round five Team of the Week, brought to you by Accor Hotels.

Three ruckmen made claim to spots in this week's team, with the standout Greater Western Sydney's Shane Mumford for his demolition job against Sydney.

Closely in contention were Richmond's Toby Nankervis and Hawthorn's Ben McEvoy. The big Tiger took out the fans' vote to claim the last spot on the bench.

As far as resurgences go, Fremantle backman Michael Johnson silenced the critics with a general-like performance in the Dockers' thriller over North Melbourne.

As always, midfield depth across the competition made selection tough with Nat Fyfe, Ollie Wines, Rory Atkins, Callan Ward, Dayne Zorko and Jack Steven unlucky to miss out. 

It was also tough for forwards, with Orazio Fantasia and...

AFL 2017 Round 04 - West Coast v Sydney

Sam Mitchell needs to show improvement at Wednesday night's training session

SAM MITCHELL is still no certainty to be ticked-off as a starter for his first Western Derby, amid a concerning injury toll for under-pressure West Coast ahead of Saturday night's clash with Fremantle.

Mitchell needs to train strongly on Wednesday night to be any chance of facing the Dockers after he missed Sunday's horror loss to his old club Hawthorn due to a sore ankle.

"We'll give him until the last minute but we'll need to see some improvement tonight," Eagles coach Adam Simpson said. 

"Medically he was unfit to play last week, we gave him every chance, but deep down I think we both knew he wasn't going to come up.

"This week's a little bit different."

One more week on the outer for Suns' key pillars

AFL 2017 Round 01 - Gold Coast v Brisbane

Steven May will miss this week's clash with North Melbourne

GOLD Coast will be without key defenders Steven May and Rory Thompson for Saturday night's match against North Melbourne, with both ruled out for at least another week.

May (hamstring) and Thompson (quad) have missed one and two matches respectively.

Gold Coast general manager of football Marcus Ashcroft told the club's website the pair were making good progress, but would have to wait until round seven's clash with Geelong to return.

"(They) won’t play this weekend but will be a test for the following weekend’s game," Ashcroft said. 

It's a similar timeframe for midfield recruit Pearce Hanley, who suffered a bruised heel in the NEAFL two weekends ago.

Hanley was playing his first match back in three weeks from personal leave and will now also have to wait a further week to play again, which would likely be in the...

AFL watching 'last possession' rule closely

AFL 2016 Rd 21 - Fremantle v Adelaide

Garrick Ibbotson avoided a free kick being paid against him for deliberate out of bounds in the clash with North Melbourne

THE AFL is continuing to monitor the effect of the 'last possession' rule operating in the SANFL but its preference is to maintain a strict interpretation of the deliberate out of bounds rule in its current format.

The League's football operations boss Simon Lethlean told AFL Exchange that the current rule fulfilled the lawmakers' desire to preserve the ruck and stoppage work from boundary throw-ins.

However, he said the AFL regularly spoke to the SANFL about how the rule was operating and its effect on games so they were well informed if the deliberate out of bounds rule needed further tightening.

The SANFL introduced the last possession out of bounds rule in 2016 which awards a free kick against the player adjudged to have last touched the ball with a clear...

On trend: The stats that matter for your club

The top of the table Crows entered the season wanting to add versatility to allow them to rotate more players through the midfield. This has worked a treat. David Mackay has spent time across half-back, Charlie Cameron's pace has been an eye-catching addition through the midfield and on the wing, and defender Rory Laird has had short bursts on the ball. The Crows are also moving the ball quicker through their backline by hand. Their ratio of kicks to handballs in the defensive half has gone from 1.13:1 in 2016 (sixth in the AFL) to 0.89:1 this year (17th). When the Crows do kick out of defence, they go direct rather than messing around with the short option – 46.4 per cent (second in the League) of their kicks out of their defensive half are long kicks this year compared to 40.5 per cent (13th) in 2016. The lightning-quick ball movement of the Crows has resulted in their...
