Notable events[edit]

  • Following the release of the Crawford Report, prepared by insolvency expert David Crawford, the clubs voted to make significant changes to the administrative structure of the AFL during the 1993 season. The AFL Commission was expanded from six members to eight members, and was given the power to make most administrative decisions relating to the league unilaterally; this replaced the previous system under which decisions required ratification by a vote of club presidents.[1] The clubs retained the right to veto any Commission decision by a 75% vote; and, as several clubs were worried about their long-term viability at the time, a stipulation was included such that any decisions relating to the expulsion, merger or relocation of a club required ratification by a simple majority of all clubs and the agreement of the club in question.[2]
  • At the conclusion of their Round 4 game against Collingwood, St Kilda's Nicky Winmar responded to two hours of racial vilifications from the Collingwood cheer squad by declaring, "I'm black and proud of it!" while raising his jumper and pointing to his skin, an image which has since become famous. This was St Kilda's first win at Victoria park in two decades.
  • North Melbourne and Brisbane Bears both set club-record high scores in this season. North Melbourne's 35.19 (229) in Round 6 was then the fifth-highest score of all time, and Brisbane's 33.21 (219) in Round 8 was then the tenth-highest of all times. The opponent in both of these games was Sydney.
  • In the Round 8 game, Brisbane Bears set the record for the highest score at three-quarter time, 27.17 (179). This remained the record until 2007.
  • In Round 18, a piglet with the word "PLUGA" and the number four painted on it was released onto the Sydney Cricket Ground during the match between Sydney and St Kilda; play was held up for two to three minutes as it managed to evade capture from trainers, security guards and players. The idea to release the pig had been devised by a small group of Sydney supporters and players the previous week, and was intended as a tactic to put dangerous St Kilda full-forward Tony "Plugger" Lockett off his game. As it happened, Lockett missed the game with injury, but was reportedly enraged when he saw the incident on television.[3]
