Notes[edit]

  • Port Adelaide appeared in their first ever finals series in the AFL
  • Richmond and Adelaide played in torrential and stormy conditions at Football Park in round 9. Under new laws that were introduced following the power outage which interrupted a game at Waverley Park in 1996, the captains met in the centre to decide whether to call the game off at three quarter time (accepting the progress score as final), due to the thunder and lightning having put out two light towers during half time. At that stage, Adelaide led by a point, but the captains agreed to carry on with the game. Richmond ended up winning by 9 points.
  • Two weeks later, Richmond once again played in heavy and unrelenting rain at Football Park, this time against Port Adelaide. Port Adelaide won by the score of 4.8 (32) to 3.12 (30). It was Port Adelaide's lowest score (giving them the unique distinction of recording a victory with their lowest score) until Round 10 of 2010 (which, coincidentally, was also against Richmond at Football Park in wet weather). The match remains the last time a team has won with four or fewer goals, and remains the fifth-lowest winning score since 1912.
  • Brisbane's half-time score of 21.5 (131) against Fremantle in round 20 set the new and enduring record for the highest half-time score in VFL/AFL history.
  • In their round 12 game, Hawthorn trailed St Kilda by 63 points early in the second quarter before recovering to win by thirteen points. This set a new record for the largest ever comeback in a VFL/AFL game, a record which would stand until 2001.
  • The start of the Round 22 game between Carlton and Richmond at the M.C.G. was delayed by about half an hour after the scoreboard at the city end caught fire ten minutes before the scheduled bounce down. Players returned to the rooms, and much of the Ponsford stand was evacuated onto the playing arena.
  • Tim Watson became coach of St Kilda, and Leigh Matthews became coach of the Brisbane Lions.
  • Collingwood lost 13 games in a row following on from the end of the previous season. They finally won against Fremantle in round 8.
  • Port Adelaide's percentage of 90.12 remains the worst of any team in VFL/AFL history which qualified a team for the finals (excluding WWI affected seasons).
  • Waverley Park and Victoria Park both hosted their last senior AFL games in Round 22 --- their absence would be replaced the following year by Colonial Stadium. Waverley Park hosted its first football match in Round 3, 1970 (Geelong vs Fitzroy), and was designated for over twenty years as VFL Park. Collingwood had utilised Victoria Park as its home ground since 1892.
