For complete lists of what is left to do, see the following sub pages or the links to each club's full player list or the lists of players by year of debut.

  • ToDo for a list of AFL/VFL players who played in multiple seasons & do not seem to have a page (long, over 3500 names).
  • ToDo single season for a list of AFL/VFL players who only played in a single season & do not seem to have a page (long, almost 2800 names).
  • ToDo counter, an infrequently manually updated count of how many players remain without pages.

For players from the early years of the VFL who didn't play many games, nor win any awards, it may be preferable to only list them on disambigation pages or only as a redirect to the list of club players, rather than creating individual player pages. The current preferrence, however, is to still create dedicated pages for each player.

Article naming[edit]

Where there is already another person of the same name with an article, the preferred disambiguation method is:

  1. John Citizen (footballer), unless there is another footballer (of any code, even rugby) with the same name
  2. John Citizen (Australian footballer), unless there is another Australian footballer of any code with the same name
  3. John Citizen (Australian rules footballer), unless there are multiple Australian rules footballers with the same name
  4. John Citizen Jr. and John Citizen Sr., if that is the common way of differentiating between father and son with the same name
  5. John Citizen (footballer, born 1900), unless there are multiple footballers of the same name and birth year, then (Australian footballer, born 1900) or (Australian rules footballer, born 1900) should be considered
  6. John R. Citizen, middle initials should only be used if they are well known (and commonly used), or all other options remain ambiguous.

Using (AFL footballer), (VFL footballer), (Collingwood footballer) or similar is discouraged. If in doubt, ask at the project talk page.

  1. The Approx # of player articles created and % Complete columns use the pages in category function, which may include lists, representative teams or junior players, that aren't included in the number of actual players, hence the approximate nature of the count.
  2. # of players is correct as of the end of the 2017 AFL season
  3. Players who played for more than one club are counted multiple times in the above list
