The Year of Un-innocence

Peter Baulderstone shares a review of 2013 in sport from Brian Phillips at the US website ‘Grantland’. Cynicism and naivety are the staples of sports fans globally. Enjoy.

2010 – The Year of the Tight Tiger

The title above does not refer to the Richmond, Glenelg or Hull City Football Clubs nor to a constipated Siberian in Melbourne Zoo but more so a poor/clumsy alliteration on what has been one of the closest run years in sport (& politics) for a long time. So what will 2011 be like in comparison?  [Read more]

Another year over…

by Josh Barnstable Wheeling the orange bin over to my locker, I carefully squeezed into the small space along with the bin, in front of a tower of lockers. I opened the top locker on the right, next to the greystone wall. Cobwebs had covered my locker, and a few Daddy-Long Legs had occupied a [Read more]


There is something amiss, something not quite right. 2010 was supposed to be a very balanced year. It is a lovely even number is 2010. No rough edges, nothing sticking rudely out like “1997” for example with all those tails and hard angles. But 2010 has confounded me. It started early in the year. There [Read more]

Season Review: Adelaide Crows 2010

Highlights: Not a lot of highlights in a dark year for the Adelaide Crows, but the Round 11 game against the Fremantle Dockers sticks out as perhaps the moment of the decade for Adelaide. In Tyson Edwards 321st and last game, the Crows came up against an in-form Freo side at AAMI Stadium. It was [Read more]

Season Review: Port Adelaide 2010

Highlights: Port Adelaide started the season in a bright manner, winning the first two games against North Melbourne at home and West Coast at Subiaco Oval. The match against the Eagles was full of fight and courage, with Jason Davenport scoring four goals in the final quarter to lift his side to a narrow three [Read more]

Carlton 2010: Patience is a Learned Virtue at Princes Park

Assessments of a season are hard to separate from the expectations held going into it. In Carlton’s case, the departure of a certain erratic, ego-centric full forward had the Blues widely written off. Lost in all the Fevola fluff was football’s forgotten man, Nick Stevens, who’s forced early retirement confirmed he lacked that most essential [Read more]


2010 is finished. What can your team learn from it and what needs to be done? 2011 starts this week.

Roos season that was

Here’s my take on the season that was for the Rooboys: Season highlights: Our best win of the season came against Carlton in round 12.  Friday night, big crowd, season on the line.  I sat with a couple of typically arrogant Blue mates behind their interchange bench and rejoiced with every Lindsay Thomas goal and [Read more]

Geelong season summary

SEASON HIGHLIGHTS-  The 11-goal 3rd quarter against Port in rd 4 was history making, and very amusing. The rd 20 game against the Bulldogs was good, as Daniel Menzel debuted (He’ll be my next fave player when he starts playing the games he should be playing), and we beat them after they looked like having [Read more]


By Howard Kimber A wise man once said, “there is nothing as over-rated as bad sex, or under-rated as a good shit,” and while some may argue the truth in that statement it none the less seems to perfectly sum up Richmond’s 2010. While Collingwood, St Kilda, Geelong and the Bulldogs are seen as clearly [Read more]
