I got the first six games right and then Carlton and Port Adelaide lost <_<
Hawthorn's Cyril Rioli (hamstring) will be sidelined for at least 3 weeks while Brad Sewell (knee) will miss 4-6 weeks.

----------

Western Bulldogs forward Justin Sherman has been banned for abusing an opponent.
Gold Coast first-gamer Joel Wilkinson, who is of Nigerian descent, is understood to be the player Sherman racially abused during Saturday's match.
Sherman will serve a four-game AFL suspension, making him the first player in 12 years to be banned for breaching the league's racial and religious vilification policy.
Sherman will also donate $5000 to a charity of the Suns' choice and must attend an education program.
The punishment was agreed after AFL-moderated mediation between the players.
It was agreed Sherman can play in the VFL during his ban.

Perth’s new multi-purpose stadium would be built on the Burswood Peninsula and is scheduled for completion in 2018, WA Premier Colin Barnett has said.
The new Perth Stadium will have the third-biggest capacity in Australia and will be the second largest AFL home stadium.
It will have a capacity of 60,000 seats with provision for future expansion to 70,000 seats in the style of Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium, with similar views, amenities and comfort.
The Premier's announcement followed an exclusive report in The West Australian today that Cabinet had approved the plan yesterday.
Mr Barnett today said that the Burswood Peninsula was unconstrained by surrounding development and Government-owned, "which will allow us to achieve the vision of a world-class stadium precinct".
“The new stadium will be the centrepiece of an emerging eastside precinct at the gateway to Perth and is within walking distance of a range of potential transport options including footbridges, ferries, and trains," he said in a statement.
“We want people going to the stadium for an event to catch public transport. The new Perth Stadium will deliver a high quality, state-of-the-art facility all West Australians can be proud of.
“To help us achieve this, there will be an international design competition to attract the best ideas."
The 2011-12 State Budget allocated a total of $13 million over two years for planning of the new stadium.
The final cost will be determined after the design process has been completed. However, the current indicative cost for the stadium is approximately $700 million, excluding costs associated with upgrades to transport infrastructure.
The design will not include an underground carpark.
The Premier said geotechnical problems will be solved by anchoring the stadium to 30m-deep pylons driven into bedrock.
Lighting will be in Eagles and Dockers colours, depending on who is playing.
The stadium will be linked to East Perth by a footbridge.
A four-platform train station will be built so that every train line can come directly into the stadium.
Sport and Recreation Minister Terry Waldron said a steering committee would be established to oversee the project and will be co-chaired by the executive director of the Office of Strategic Projects Richard Mann and director general of the Department of Sport and Recreation Ron Alexander.
The West Australian reported today that the plan was endorsed after ministers were convinced the Burswood site was stable and the arena was affordable.
No geotechnical testing has been done at the site near the Graham Farmer Freeway.

That's interesting but I fear they are aiming too low. Why not spend a bit more and give it a larger capacity? A 20k upgrade (from Subi to new stadium) worth 700 mil? Aim higher folks.

I also think 60,000 capacity for a new stadium is too low. Currently Perth's population is 2 million and expanding due to WA's mining boom. Given the Eagles and the Dockers both have large memberships, a 60,000-capacity stadium won't be enough to accommodate them all during the derbies. The state government should aim for minimum 70,000 capacity.

The AFL Players Association sent a strong message to the AFL by staging an historic mass meeting over a pay claim, but the players stopped short of threatening strike action.
About 400 players attended a 90-minute meeting in Melbourne and another 300 were involved via video links in Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Perth and Adelaide.
"I want to emphasise that strike action is the last things on players' minds," AFLPA chief executive Matt Finnis said after the meeting at Crown Casino.
"Players very clearly indicated to us their commitment to securing a partnership agreement with the League whilst continuing to play football for their fans.
"The players want to be dealt with fairly and with respect."
The players were required to vote on three resolutions during this evening’s meeting, and voted unanimously to resolve that the AFL’s proposals to date - which included a yearly 3.2 per cent salary increase - "fail to address the key objectives of our claims".
The other two resolutions saw the players throw their complete support behind the AFLPA in "pursuing a new CBA through continued negotiations with the League" and if unsuccessful in its negotiations, instructing the AFLPA to "explore and … utilise the rights and processes available to players under the Fair Work Act".
However, the players did not discuss possible strike action, with Fremantle captain and AFLPA board member Matthew Pavlich all but ruling that out from occurring down the track.
"That type of industrial action is not something the players would like to engage in," he said.
"I can almost 100 per cent guarantee that that will not happen. There might be some other subtle things that we would look to do but certainly not that type of industrial action."
It is understood players would instead refuse media interviews and not attend corporate appearances.

isn't that Etihad's one though Johnson?

Etihad Stadium's capacity is around 53,500. The new Perth Stadium is aiming to be Australia's third largest stadium after the MCG (100,000 capacity) and Sydney's Olympic Stadium (82,000).

Port Adelaide has been guaranteed $3m a year for the next three seasons in the joint AFL-SANFL revival package for SA football announced today.
And the Crows are also beneficiaries of the deal, with the chance to make an extra $1m a year for three years from 2012.
The debt-strapped SANFL will have access to $1.5m from the AFL's treasury for the next three years.
This is a loan that does not have to be repaid until the Crows and Power move to the new Adelaide Oval in 2014.
The SANFL today also confirmed plans to move Port Adelaide's season finale against Melbourne from AAMI Stadium to Adelaide Oval in early September.

The AFL has extended its partnership with major sponsor Toyota Australia for a further three years in what league CEO Andrew Demetriou has described as likely "the largest sponsorship for any sport in this country".
Toyota has been the league's premier partner since 2004 and the extension - announced on Friday morning at the Australian International Motor Show in Melbourne - will see the relationship last at least 11 years.
While the league didn't disclose the exact value of the sponsorship deal, Demetriou said the arrangement was a "very significant".
Toyota Australia senior executive director David Buttner said the carmaker was committed to providing a further $1 million through the 'Good for Footy' program for things like ground improvements and clubroom renovations, and equipment, uniforms and medical supplies.
He also announced a vital expansion designed to protect the health of young footballers with all players in the program over the next three years to have access to baseline concussion testing.
Grassroots players will be able to utilise the same testing that AFL footballers are exposed to measure cognitive brain function after they suffer a concussion.

Essendon had a shock 4 point win over Geelong tonight, ending the Cats' 13-game winning streak. Interesting notes though: the two previous occasions Geelong won their first 13 matches in a VFL/AFL season (1953 and 2009) they went on to win the flag in that year.

Adelaide midfielder Richard Douglas will miss the next four to six weeks after being diagnosed with a high ankle sprain today.
Douglas, last year's Crows' best and fairest, injured his ankle while tackling Sydney's Tadhg Kennelly in the third term at AAMI Stadium on Saturday night.
"It's normally a four to six-week injury and the doctors are suggesting that it won't be any better than that so he will miss between three and five games," Crows operations manager Phil Harper said.
"He didn't miss a game last year and hadn't missed a game this year.
"Whilst his form has been a little bit up and down this year in comparison to last year, he's a vital part of our team because he can not only play midfield but do some damage when he goes forward."

Collingwood key forward Chris Dawes has broken his knuckle and will miss up to six weeks of football. The Magpie was subbed out of his team's comfortable 41-point win over Hawthorn yesterday, and reported continuing discomfort this morning.
He underwent surgery this afternoon.
Magpie General Manager of Football Geoff Walsh told SEN radio this afternoon that scans this morning confirmed the break, saying it would probably sidleine Dawes for a month, but "with those sort of injuries, hard to tell from day one."

http://www.theage.co...0704-1gy4e.html

Hawthorn's dreadful run of bad luck with injuries has continued, with young forward Jordan Lisle facing surgery on a facial fracture.
Scans have confirmed what Hawks' medicos had suspected after yesterday's defeat by Collingwood: that the 20-year-old Lisle has a depressed fracture of the cheekbone. He is due for surgery on Tuesday and will miss an unspecified period of football.
