Is this counting VFA/VFL/ AFL, VFL/AFL, just AFL, just as Western Bulldogs, or with Footscray as well?

Progression of most career games.

During our first season in 1925, two players, Col Laidlaw and Vic Samson, played all 17 games. I have thus started my table from round 1, 1926 onward. I have then concentrated on the point at which a player's games total was equalled, and then overtaken. After this, I have then updated his totals to the end of each season, otherwise I would have hundreds of rows. Hopefully the table is easy enough to understand. It's just meant to show who our games record holders have been.

I knew those two at the top were our longest official quarters.

The one against the Hawks was the same game Todd Curley made contact with a field umpire. The conequences of that being a four week suspension. It also came at a time we had all the momentum, and that momentum was killed off with a free kick to the Hawks.

The game against Carlton was a disaster. An 80-point loss after we won the previous week by 91 points.

The one against the Bombers is when Moorcroft took the mark of the year.

The one in 2005 against Brisbane is when Matthew Robbins took a screamer over Chris Johnson, Cooney went nuts with his career best game to that stage of his career, and Simon Black threw his lunch up.

The 2006 game against Brisbane may have been when Brian Harris took 22 marks.

And of course the Saints game in 1978 is when Kelvin kicked 15.9 and we kicked our career high score of 213.

The one in 2005 against Brisbane is when Matthew Robbins took a screamer over Chris Johnson, Cooney went nuts with his career best game to that stage of his career, and Simon Black threw his lunch up.
Cooney got a rocket from Rocket at 3qt and tore the game up in the last quarter. The highlights are here and it's a tantalising glimpse at what could have been, week-in-week-out, without the knee:
