The Port Adelaide Football Club has been informed that an Australian man who has died in Las Vegas is believed to be one of its players. At this point, the club is unale to confirm the identity of the player involved in this tragedy as family members are still being informed.

It couldn’t get much worse for Melbourne in 2012. The death of Jim Stynes, the Aaron Davey-Mark Neeld-Jason Mifsud racism scandal, EnergyWatch, the Liam Jurrah issues as well as a terrible year onfield all combined to produce one of the worst rides for supporters of any side in recent history. What’s worse is that sitting [...]
It’s been a tough ride for Guy McKenna and Gold Coast in 2012. Questions have swirled about McKenna’s coaching ability and questions about a contract renewal. There have been both stars and underperformers in 2012: Gary Ablett is surely a Brownlow contender despite playing in a side which finished in the bottom two. Harley Bennell [...]
Before the start of the 2012 season, this writer tipped that Greater Western Sydney would go winless. A bunch of near-retired players, a few younger uncontracted players, and then kids? Nearly no rucks to speak of? It spelt for a long year for the AFL’s newest side. But I was wrong. Despite the challenges they [...]
GEELONG 4.3 7.5 12.7 17.10 (112) SYDNEY SWANS 4.5 5.8 7.12 11.12 (78) A four-goal haul from Tom Hawkins and an all-round team performance were the hallmarks of Geelong’s 34-point victory over Sydney. After a tight opening half where Sydney managed to take the lead, the Cats were able to pull away near 3 [...]
ESSENDON 4.3 7.3 9.7 10.12 (72) COLLINGWOOD 5.5 7.11 10.17 14.20 (104) Travis Cloke has signed… with someone. That’s the best conclusion I can come to. Travis Cloke was everywhere. Cloke took 16 marks, contributed 7 inside-50s and kicked 5.4 to put Collingwood into the top [...]
WEST COAST 2.4 6.8 11.12 15.17 (107) COLLINGWOOD 4.4 4.9 6.9 8.10 (58) The stats don’t lie. Collingwood played like a bottom-four side on Saturday night as they went down to West Coast by 49 points. The Magpies only managed 33 inside 50s, less than half that Carlton managed during their simultaneous loss [...]
RICHMOND 3.3 8.5 14.8 20.12 (132) BRISBANE LIONS 3.2 4.9 7.12 12.12 (84) Brett Deledio’s 33 touches and a superhuman performance from Ivan Maric saw Richmond win their first match in a month at the Gabba. The Tigers had to overcome a late comeback from Brisbane to surge home though, running out [...]
