Yeah I remember the Hawthorn-Western Bulldogs 2001 game being talked about at the time as having an epic quarter. Given the Hawks were still on a streak at the time, the game was followed fairly closely. Not surprised that it was put in print as the longest quarter up until that point in 2005.

Another one from my memory. I was watching a vfa game where Big Bob Johnson was playing and the quarter went on and on because the commentators were going off because the siren wasnt working. I cannot find any info on the game but i do remember the commentators going off. It would have been around 1971 or 72 when i was 6 or 7

The last quarter from Sydney vs Geelong, Rd 6 1993, when Osborne got knocked out and the ambo had to drive on and pick him up. I timed the quarter from siren to goal umpire signalling the last shot after the final siren and came up with 41:35.

Some others I have timed:
North Melbourne vs Richmond, Rd 5 1989, last quarter - 36:56
Brisbane vs Geelong, Rd 7 1992, last quarter - 37:28
