Football Nation’s roving reporter DANIEL PAPROTH gives us his take and his picks on all the games of Round 9.

IT’S been a tough year and a rough week for the Essendon Football Club. And it just took another bad turn with the club announcing today that their CEO, Ian Robson, has resigned from the club effective immediately. In a statement that Robson released via the club’s website he said that this is not the
WELCOME to the latest instalment of Football Nation’s unofficial AFL injury list as we approach Round 9 of the 2013 season.

Unsatisfied with Melbourne’s ridiculous parking prices, I stopped the car outside an old unit somewhere near Albert and Hoddle st. It was a fair walk to the Yarra to see the Moomba festival, but I didn’t mind. It was still better than giving in to the absurd rates that Secure Parking charges despite having no guarantee or warranty that your
THE Essendon Football Club has released a statement confirming that utility Nathan Lovett-Murray is recovering in hospital this morning after receiving a knife wound during an altercation last night. He will require minor surgery to repair the damage and is expected to make a full recovery from the injury. According to the club Lovett-Murray, 30, was defending himself
ROUND 9 marks indigenous round for the AFL and the AFL has come a long way in 20 years since Nicky Winmar’s famous stance for his identity. On a cold autumn’s day in April 1993, Collingwood played St Kilda at a vocal Victoria Park. The day will be remembered for Nicky Winmar standing up for

WESTERN Bulldogs midfielder Jackson Macrae has been rewarded for his efforts against the Gold Coast Suns last weekend with the Round 8 Rising Star nomination.

YET another busy day today for the AFL’s Match Review Panel after the incidents came through thick and fast from the weekend’s games and especially the halftime melee that marred the Richmond vs Melbourne game. On the basis of their review the MRP have laid the following charges: West Coast vs North Melbourne: After
THE ever growing injury list at the Fremantle Dockers has claimed another big name with news today that star forward Michael Walters will miss the next three to four weeks with an ankle injury. The gun forward injured his ankle during the third quarter of Fremantle’s draw with Sydney at the SCG on Saturday night.
WHILE the second expansion team, Greater Western Sydney, continued to struggle, the powers-that-be at the AFL can take some delight from the performance of the first true expansion team since 1995, Gold Coast.
In each of the Gold Coast’s first two seasons they won three games: against Richmond (twice), Port Adelaide, Brisbane, GWS and Carlton. In eight rounds this year, they’ve already won four – and have added St Kilda, Melbourne and now the Western Bulldogs to the list of teams they’ve beaten
AFTER losing their first seven games of 2013, South Fremantle joined the winners list for the first time this year with a 15 point victory over Peel Thunder at Fremantle Oval on Saturday afternoon. The Bulldogs lead at every change and despite a spirited effort from the Thunder were able to hold on and register
NOT only did North Adelaide win for the fifth time this season, to move clear in third spot on the SANFL ladder, it came from behind to beat a form team in the Eagles, to demonstrate its credentials as a legitimate premiership contender.

THE Melbourne Football Club may not have won but they at least played well enough for fans and the media to ease up on the pressure that they have piled onto the club as Richmond notched their fifth win of the season with a 34-point victory in front of 39,148 fans at the MCG.
Indeed while the Demons walked off the field with a sense of having achieved something, the Tigers were less than enthusiastic about their own performance as they struggled to put away their surprisingly feisty opponent
CARLTON coach Mick Malthouse admits the Blues remain very much a work in progress after grinding their way to an 18-point win over a disappointing Port Adelaide at Etihad Stadium.
Carlton won a scrappy game 16.13 (109) to 14.7 (91), with captain Marc Murphy kicking three goals playing mostly as a forward in his 150th match, Jeff Garlett snaring four and Heath Scotland slotting two majors in his 250th game
WEST Coast defender Mark Nicoski got through unscathed in his first game in 14 months for Subiaco reserves in the WAFL on Saturday. Eagles coach John Worsfold said there was no time line on his AFL return. “He obviously had an extremely serious injury that needed full-on surgery to reattach his hamstring,” West Coast coach
ADELAIDE’S 40-point win over St Kilda at AAMI Stadium on Sunday was an important one as it levelled its season at 4-4 after eight rounds.
The Crows, while not as dynamic as last week against the Giants, still managed to run the Saints off their legs. Tom Lynch kicked 10 goals last week for the Giants and against the Saints, he finished with 2-1 but perhaps may have enjoyed the win better given he was a former Saint
HAWTHORN coach Alastair Clarkson says the scoreboard “flattered” his team in its 83-point win over Greater Western Sydney at Aurora Stadium.
And while the result was largely a comfortable one, the most important factor to come out of the round for the Hawks is that they are flying on top of the ladder after seven straight wins. After round one, the Hawks appeared to be questioning themselves after the round one loss to Geelong
THE Western Bulldogs, who have won just the one match for the season and that was in round one, are in desperate need of replenishing entering their nine clash against St Kilda on Saturday. After the disappointing loss to the Gold Coast Suns, the Bulldogs could look to Nathan Hrovat for a recall after he
ESSENDON’S father-son selection Joe Daniher is expected to be in the mix once again to make his AFL debut after another impressive outing for the the Bombers VFL team in in their 12-point loss to Port Melbourne on Saturday. Daniher kicked four goals and looked lively for much of the match and with Michael Hurley
HAWTHORN youngster Jed Anderson has made a successful return from a hamstring injury with three goals in the Box Hill Hawks’ 60-point win over the Casey Scorpions. Anderson has not played since round three when he was the AFL Rising Star nominee. Hawks development coach Damian Carroll said Anderson’s return from a hamstring injury was
COLLINGWOOD veteran Alan Didak continued to push for a senior recall after a dominant second half for the Pies in the VFL against Geelong on Saturday. Pies VFL coach Dale Tapping said Didak had shown that he’s ready to play AFL again and is ready to be called upon. “Didak has been pretty good at
WITHOUT doubt the biggest change has come about with Geelong’s first loss of the season. In coming up just one goal short against Collingwood, the door was opened for Hawthorn to seize top spot on the ladder for the first time this year. Geelong hasn’t fallen far, after all they’ve only lost one game, and
IT’S ironic that it was Collingwood that was the first team of the season to beat the reigning premier Geelong by 13-points at Victoria Park on Saturday. It was only last year that the Pies also broke Port Melbourne’s famous winning streak that included its 2011 flag. But perhaps almost more ironic is the general
FORGOTTEN Hawthorn defender Will Langford, the son of former Hawthorn champion defender Chris, could be on the verge of finally making his AFL debut according to Hawks development coach Damian Carroll. Carroll said that Langford has improved out of sight and is a great story given the injury problems he has had to face in

FREMANTLE and Sydney played in this season’s first draw on Saturday night at the SCG despite the Dockers trailing by 27 points midway through the final term.
Fremantle had plenty of opportunities early in the game to hurt the Swans on the scoreboard but inaccurate kicking in front of goal cost the harbor side dearly
IN a game that even their most loyal followers thought would be beyond them, the Collingwood Football Club demonstrated a toughness and resilience that has silenced the chorus of naysayers.
In front of an MCG crowd of 66,768 the Magpies handed Geelong their first defeat of season and in doing so re-invigorated their 2013 campaign
IN a massive upset, the Brisbane Lions headed to Melbourne, expected by many, except their most ardent fans, to lose but instead they upset the number two placed side and came away with the points.
Simon Black started the match in his second game of the year after being the Sub last week against West Coast. He found plenty of the ball with 12 first term touches and all of them were silky and effective.
A SEVEN goal to one second term has placed the Northern Blues back on the winners list, recording a 44-point win over North Ballarat. The Blues were dominant after a tight opening quarter, and never looked back infront of a home crowd at Visy Park. Carlton ruckman Shaun Hampson recorded over 60 hitouts, feeding the

Vlastuin’s efforts in the the Tigers’ 41 point win over the Power included 23 disposals, 11 marks and one goal. Vlastuin was the ninth

ST KILDA and Carlton have produced another thriller in their annual Monday night clash, with the Saints victorious by nine points infront of 34,000 at Etihad Stadium.
The Blues had a horrid start to the match, losing Michael Jamison (shoulder), David Ellard (hamstring) and Chris Yarran (hamstring), on top of the late withdrawal of utility Andrew Carrazzo (calf) and the absent Jarrad Waite (suspension) and Bryce Gibbs (hamstring)

THE heat remains on embattled Melbourne coach Mark Neeld and while some key media personalities from Melbourne’s major newspapers the Herald Sun and The Age were calling for his head today, it appears likely that Neeld may well see out at least another week. The Demons’ hierarchy are reluctant to sack Neeld this week despite
SOUTH Australia continued its State League dominance on Saturday with a resounding 82-point victory over NEAFL at Richmond Oval, for its 12th win from its past 14 interstate games, dating back to 1996. The victory was hard earned after a spirited fightback by the NEAFL in the second quarter, with a dominant second half squashing
THE Herald Sun has published a story this morning in which it reveals that Gold Coast Suns defender Nathan Bock is being investigated by both the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) and the AFL for the possible use of banned peptides. Bock, 30, is alleged to have self administered the banned peptide CJC-1295 in December
AFTER losing Taylor Walker the question that hung over this Adelaide Crows team was who would step up and provide the team with it’s target in the forward line.
After handing the GWS Giants a 135 point loss, the Crows would seem to have found the answer to that question with Tom Lynch having a career day with a 10 goal performance.
Lynch, 22, was traded from St Kilda to Adelaide after the end of the 2011 season as part of a three-way deal with Richmond, which saw Ivan Maric go to the Tigers, and with the Saints getting the Crows’ second-round draft pick

MARK Neeld is not the only AFL coach in jeopardy with Brisbane Lions coach Michael Voss also facing the axe according to former coach Leigh Matthews. The question for Brisbane folk is can the Lions beat any of the following Essendon, Carlton, Collingwood, Fremantle, Geelong and Hawthorn and fellow struggler Gold Coast? Because that is
DIRECTLY after its 135-point shellacking to the hands of Adelaide, Greater Western Sydney coach Kevin Sheedy has criticised Melbourne-based AFL clubs for not having the “guts” to trade some of their experienced players for draft picks. It is understood that the Giants were after players in the ilk of Collingwood’s Dale Thomas, Carlton’s Matthew Kreuzer
COLLINGWOOD faces a season-defining fortnight after its disappointing 27-point loss to Fremantle on Saturday night. The Pies face Geelong and reigning premier Sydney over the next two weeks and at 4-3, it is forecast that it may very well be 4-5, heading into round 10. Coach Nathan Buckley questioned after the match whether his team
THERE are murmurings from senior media officials that Mark Neeld’s tenure as coach of Melbourne could be up as early as Monday with Melbourne set to lose to the Gold Coast Suns. Neeld, who has been under increasing pressure since its start to the season, has struggled to help some of the key Melbourne brigade
HAWTHORN’S forward line appears to be working overtime to prevent any conscious reliability on Lance Franklin this season. Despite Franklin’s goal-less fortnight prior to the win against the Swans on Saturday night, coach Alastair Clarkson said he was happy with Franklin’s output up forward which allowed for other goalkicking contributors. Jarryd Roughead, David Hale, Jack

VICTORIA’S 17-point loss to Western Australia in Northam on Saturday was the first time the Vics lost to WA since 1991.

THE Western Bulldogs continue to languish in the bottom four after another spirited but ultimately unsuccessful outing against North Melbourne on Saturday evening.
But it is fair to say that most will remember the game for Majak Daw’s efforts. The former Sudanese refugee kicked 6.4 to light up Etihad Stadium in a performance that won’t soon be forgotten

Griffen, 27, injured his knee mid-way through the first quarter of the game against the Magpies at Patersons Stadium last night during a
IN what was a classic crossroads game for Richmond, the Tigers reversed their three-game losing streak with a much needed road win over Port Adelaide at AAMI Stadium yesterday afternoon.
The Tigers had begun the season with three straight wins before dropping the last three and had settled into their all too familiar ninth place spot on the ladder and a narrow loss to Fremantle two weeks ago almost demonstrating how in spit of improvements the club was not quite there yet
HAWTHORN has overcome its tough start to its season with a 6-1 record after its 37-point win over Sydney at the MCG on Saturday night.

THE effort was there but the Brisbane Lions came up short today in an entertaining game against West Coast at the Gabba.
Both teams are down on form in 2013 and it was the visitors who controlled the early tempo of the game with Josh Kennedy kicking the opening goal.
