Not much of a coincidence I suppose, but I heard that Melbourne and Richmond have never been in the same finals series since 1941??

Awesome thread just quietly (y)

My old man pointed out this one to me earlier on Sunday when we new we were playing Port in the final...

In the year 2012, Shaun Grigg had 12 handballs against Port Adelaide in round 6. 2 + 12 = 14
In the following year of 2013, Shaun Grigg had 13 handballs against Port Adelaide in round 7. 1 + 13 = 14
In the following year of 2014, Shaun Grigg had 14 handballs again Port Adelaide in round 16. 16 - 2 = 14.
2014 - Shaun Grigg's total handballs the last two weeks 26 = 1988 (the year Shaun was born)
+ the total of handballs in the first calculations = 42
42 (handballs) - 26 (Grigg's age) = 16 (the amount of points Richmond will beat Port Adelaide by this weekend)
That's actually crazy.

1993 was the international year of indigenous people.

The Michael Tuck medal was won by Wanganeen. Long won the Norm Smith. Wanganeen won the Brownlow. Both played in a premiership side. The last 2 kicks of the game were Long to Wanganeen who slotted the final goal of the season... Coincidence?

What happened in the other games that the team
Scored the most ?
There was an investigation due to Siren Gate. And on another occasion the result was overturned a few days later due to an unregistered player being fielded. Can't remember what year it was, but I think Carlton was involved.

1909, Geelong v St Kilda. The Saints won by a point but the game was awarded to Geelong because the Saints played a suspended player, yet the scores of the game were kept the same for percentage purposes.
