Adelaide's Draw Drought continues ^. We have the next longest active drought (we had 2x in 2003 but none since), the other teams apart from GWS/Gold Coast (who have yet to play in a draw) have played in one in the last 10 years. 2012 and 2013 only had 1 draw apiece.
I have a good database on draws in the AFL and the second tier state leagues going back to the introduction of modern scoring of 6 points for a goal and 1 point for a behind. What’s fascinating is that 2004, the last season with no draws in the AFL, was the first peacetime season with no draws in any of the VFL/AFL, VFA/VFL, SANFL or WAFL since 1907 (1918 also had no draws but the SANFL was in recess).
