For the second time in three weeks two teams with the same total of points have had their percentages rounded off to the same number. After round 7 Western Bulldogs and Hawthorn were both on 12 points with percentages of 100.2, whilst after round 9 Brisbane Lions and Richmond are both on 24 points with percentages of 103.5.

Brad Scott now retires (for the time being) as the coach with the third-highest tally of games without a draw, having coached 211 games consisting of 106 wins and 105 losses, placing him behind Malcolm Blight (250 games, 139 wins, 111 losses) and Ted Whitten (228 games, 91 wins, 137 losses).

The ending of the 2018 SANFL season was highly controversial, with the North Adelaide Roosters winning a close Preliminary Final over the Eagles after having 19 players on the field at one stage during the match. The Eagles protested the PF result but it was to no avail, and North were allowed to play Norwood in the Grand Final, where the Roosters upset the hot favorite premiership favorites the Redlegs to win their first premiership since 1991. Ironically the 1991 Grand Final was also marred by controversy, North's 75-point win over West Adelaide notable for the many fights that broke out during the game.

The SANFL punished North Adelaide for the 19 player debacle by deducting 4 premiership points from the Roosters starting total in 2019. This equates to two wins as the SANFL awards 2 premiership points for a win, rather than 4 seen in the other leagues around Australia. As at the time of posting the Red and Whites are having a hard time defending their premiership and the Roosters are languishing at the bottom of the ladder with just one win, and negative two premiership points for the season, threatening to emulate West Adelaide's fall from premiers to last in 2015-2016, and NEAFL team UWS Giants which went from premiers to wooden spooners in 2016-2017.

If North Adelaide fail to win another match for the season, we might well see the first instance of a team having a negative premiership point total for the season. From an interesting trivia/statistic perspective, I hope so.

It was in 1981 when St.Kilda were penalised 8 premiership points (2 wins) when Doug Cox was apparently playing when incorrectly registered or something like that. It reduced the side to just one win after a bright start (by then St.Kilda standards) earlier that season. However on appeal the penalty was rescinded and they finished with 5 wins and 17 losses that year.

Reversing a match result because of a 19th player is harsh and ridiculous. A 2-game penalty because of a 19th player is harsh and ridiculous.

How hard it is for a league official to keep count of how many players each team has on the bench?

Geelong's 11th last win was 13 games ago (P13 W11 L2) - phenomenal
Brisbane's 11th last win was 20 games ago (P20 W11 L9) - improving
Carlton's 11th last win was 66 games ago (P66 W11 L55) - stagnant

or

Geelong's last 11 games (W10 L1)
Brisbane's last 19 games (W10 L9)
Carlton's last 65 games (W10 L55)

Carlton are flying high with a new coach and a winning streak. They have 10 games left to play this year.

But will recent history repeat itself?

Carlton's last 10 games in 2015: 1 win, 9 losses
Carlton's last 10 games in 2016: 1 win, 9 losses
Carlton's last 10 games in 2017: 1 win, 9 losses
Carlton's last 10 games in 2018: 1 win, 9 losses

Good article on the AFL site today about players at the highest number of venues: https://www.afl.com.au/news/2019-06-15/which-current-player-has-played-at-the-most-venues-in-history

Jack Hombsch (GW, PA, GC) today played his 110th game at his 21st distinct venue (Riverway Stadium), extending his own record over that of 19 venues, jointly held by Paul Salmon (ES, HW, 324 games) and Robert Harvey (SK, 383 games).

I dug into Hombsch's records a bit (using afltables.com), and found that he played his first 10 games at 10 different venues (remarkable, compared to Alan Didak (CO), 218 games at only 6 venues in total). Hombsch equalled the record of 19 venues in just his 90th game (when he played for PA vs HW at York Park in R11, 2018), and set the outright record with his 20th venue in his 95th game (when he played for PA vs WB at Eureka Stadium in R19, 2018). I derived his full progressive list; see below.

Plus I can think of one "current" venue he hasn't yet played at (Cairns; there might be more, but they don't spring to mind). As a GC player, he's a good chance to add it to his list before he's done.
