But yeah, why was this?

i've asked around before. apparently it's up to the timekeeper and nobody else to tack on however long s/he sees fit to ensure a the full amount of time was played.

I'd answer but I don't know where you got the 1:15 from in the first place.

Did the quarter run 31:15 or something?

I missed the final 10-15 minutes unfortunately cos I went out, but I watched most of it and shit it was a great game of football. If Rough did his achilles in the final that's why it went over, but I don't get why you're asking... there is no "overtime" in AFL. Whenever there's a stoppage, goal scored or injury the clock stops running.

According to the playclock on the computer it did, so right there it might have been incorrect

I do hate how Channel 10's coverage counts up for the last five minutes of the final quarter and just shows actual time elapsed (not accounting for stoppages) rather than counting down from 5:00 to 0:00. Much prefer watching Channel 7 just because they keep an accurate count for the last five minutes.

Though I do still sometimes get thrown off when watching either channel because I'm used to rugby counting up. When I read, say, 17:21, I assume that is time elapsed, not time to go. I notice that in The Age's live coverage of AFL games, they count up with time elapsed, not counting stoppages.

Every quarter in every game runs a different time because of stoppages, goals, injuries.

Never want to take any games for granted, so I'm thrilled with Carlton's dominating victory over Brisbane. 19 goals, 10 behinds is fucking efficient kicking, and with Kreuzer back, hot damn. Finally passing up Hawthorn feels good too.

Next round's Sydney match poses a significant challenge, but I see no reason to fear them right now. If Carlton is worthy of a premiereship (I believe they are, although many seem to think them a little soft), we've got this.

Sydney have kicked 17 behinds thus far, with only 5 goals to show for all 22 scoring shots. Mad.

Carlton should and probably will beat Sydney next week.

Hahahahaha 5.19 now. If Sydney manages to lose this game, they should be banished from the top 8 for the rest of the season. Don't want to reflect poorly on the league now.
