I'm so confused by the clock management...they let it run just long enough for the Cats to move up another 6 to make it 45-7. Quarter time immediately followed. Sounds like bullshit on paper, but I guess I just don't know how it works.

There are two different types of time: time on and time elapsed. Each quarter is 20 minutes long. That's it. No extra or injury time, just 20 minutes of time on. But that does not allow for clock stoppages during those 20 minutes of time on; time elapsed, by contrast, counts up each quarter and shows the total time elapsed between first bounce and final siren, including stoppages. Hence quarters tend to run for around ~30 minutes of time elapsed.

Clear as mud?

Thanks, Ax, I've got it now. That's a delightful summation of the nature of AFL rules right there.

And I guess I better stop reading this thread for the next few hours? Carlton vs West Coast is the game on telly today here and it's being broadcast on delay.

For your sake, you'd best avoid. I tend to running diary Carlton games. Been giving out a lot of highs scores to them lately, but we're due for a Brokencyde at some point. This could be the night.

If you're referring to me destroying the thread verbally then don't worry! I'm not even watching and I'm past caring at the moment.

EDIT: Oh wait, I completely missed the point.

I should also note that it is possible to score after the siren. Ordinarily, play stops immediately when the siren goes, so if you're running with the ball getting ready to kick a goal, too bad for you. However, if a player takes a mark BEFORE the siren goes and is lining up to take a shot on goal, then the siren goes, they are still allowed to take the shot. I believe there is even a Wikipedia entry on games decided (either won or drawn) by kicks after the siren.

As for today's game, I expect Carlton to win comfortably, but I'd love to see West Coast take it to them like Sydney took it to Collingwood last night. I'll be cheering on Bonnie's side today.

Well done.

Are you just looking forward to the 15th of July, when you'll probably knock off my Bombers? I'll be sharing your pain next week - after ripping the Crows a new one today, the Cats' next game is against Essendon!

Extremely even first quarter. Not that I was able to watch it...AFL.au wouldn't update for anything, so it didn't show the score until 26 minutes in.

Ugly so far. We're completely outsized. Adjustments need to be made to emphasize our speed.

West Coast can't hit the broad side of a barn though. 8 behinds already?
