    This is very easy to check manually given both those margins are in the top 20 of all time: https://afltables.com/afl/stats/biglists/bg5.txt

    The uniqueness of North's 150-point smashing at the hands of the Lions yet finishing top in 1983 will take some matching.

    And Essendon just 14 months after their 160 point hiding at the hands of the Hawks on 1/8/92 were holding up the Cup!!

    This Sunday will see Brisbane Lions, coming off a 93 point thrashing, hosting Gold Coast Suns, who copped a 80 point drubbing.

    Has there been a previous instance of two teams meeting the week after both losing by 80 points or more?

    Goes to show that any side can just have an off day, when no one turns up to play.....It's copping those hidings consistently where it's more difficult to recover club confidence, that says more about your club's culture.

    Mind you....The Roys in 1983 were a most impressive side offensively, & almost dragged back a 52 point half time deficit against us, out at the Junction oval in round 1, to get the chockies that day.....and would have, were it not for a 60 meter torp Friar Tuck special from out of the middle.

    In 1992 we were a side on the decline, even though we played finals....But occasionally we'd still put one together that mimicked the 80's....Dunstall, Langford & Platten were also still at their peaks then....I was there at the Gee that day, As I was also for the Salmon/Gablett doble-figure goal tally special; & the Bombers remarkable turn-around against the Crows at half time in the 1993 Preliminary Final....Strange year 1993, with only 20 H&A games played.

    By no means claiming this as a definitive answer but Geelong's last roster game of 1953
    apparently featured players wearing 1 to 12
