In superior code news: Richmond defeats Adelaide in a match scarred by backward-kicking possessionism (ugly new word for ugly new trend). One radio commentator: “Richmond got the first goal, and spent the rest of the match running down the clock.”
Collingwood by ten goals at halftime against Geelong. Footscray now in front against Sydney after trailing 32-0.
