Around the Tweets – AFL Round 21

Snowing in Canberra, Low Scoring games, teams not scoring much at all and a good old fashioned pile on for a once-great club.

Round 21 of the AFL was made for Twitter.

We’ve compiled the best that Twitter dot com had to offer from the minds of Footy fans in another epic edition of Around the Tweets! 

West Coast 13-12 (90) def. Adelaide 12-8 (80)

The Eagles got the job done against a gallant Crows (including five goals from the Fog) at home but the general consensus on Twitter is that their home fans don’t know the rules.

In case you’re wondering, this is the rule that most West Coast fans were not aware of.

Playing only his second match of the season, Darcy Fogarty kicked five goals. Everyone was asking – WHY HASN’T HE BEEN PLAYING ALL YEAR?

Richmond 11-7 (73) def. Carlton 9-6 (45)

Nothing fancy in the wet and the Tigers got the job done over the Blues to the tune of 28 points.

Jack starred for Richmond yesterday. Jack Graham, that is.

Turns out former Richmond player Justin Charles is as much of a one-eyed Tiger nuffie on Twitter as the rest of them.

Carlton fans dispute if Jason Castagna marked it before the siren. I guess we could bring up Wayne Harmes?

St.Kilda 10-12 (72) def. Fremantle 10-9 (69)

Johs Bruce has gone mad, Josh Bruce has gone mad, Josh Bruce has gone mad JOSH BRUCE HAS GONE COMPLETELY MAD!

The big Saint put an end to Freo’s finals hopes (and potentially Ross Lyon’s coaching at the Dockers) with a thrilling finish.

Podia from Full Frontal (Eric Bana in real life) was pumped!

As good as a final for these Saints fans.

Sticking it right up Ross and the Umps. Double-dip win.

Such is Fyfe.

Geelong 9-15 (69) def. North Melbourne 1-8 (14) 

The Cats got the job done and Quinton Narkle starred for the Cats but it was North Melbourne’s 1 goal for the entire match that was the talk of Twitter.


A little bit of perspective never hurt anyone.

North had a shocker, as did Razor Ray it would seem.

Essendon 4-9 (33) def by. Western Bulldogs 21-11 (137)

We all know what happened on Saturday night and we could have devoted this entire blog to the game so without any further or do, we are proud to present – the Essendon Twitter pile-on for your reading pleasure.

Even the Wog Boy was filthy.

The lesson is, Never Tweet.

Brisbane Lions 22-12 (144) def. Gold Coast 8.5 (55)

How about them Brisbane Lions? 

Eight in a row, smashed the Suns, gearing up for a massive 1 v 2 clash at the Gabbatoir this Saturday. Life’s good.

For four hours, they were sitting on top and having a laugh.

BREAKING: Charlie Cameron is good at Football.

If this is not an omen, I don’t know what is.

It’s the players the others reject, that makes the Brisbane Lions the best.

Port Adelaide 15-13 (103) def. Sydney 7-14 (56) 

Port kept their finals hopes alive and we’re able to string together two solid wins on the trot in Sydney.


Count yourself lucky you didn’t go to a West Coast home game then.

When he’s not pissing off Ben Simmons, Kane Cornes is singing praise on Connor Rozee.

Melbourne 7-11 (53) def. Collingwood 10-10 (70)

The Pies found themselves out its form slump in a slow, grind of a match against the Dees on Saturday but a lot of the talk surrounded Ben Simmons./

He went there.

Oh yeah, the score review also stuffed something up. What a shock!

There’s a reason Name-A-Game went bust and technology had nothing to do with it.

GWS 4-5 (29) Hawthorn 13. 7 (85)

The only things that mattered in Hawthorn’s upset win over the Giants was the snow.

Who would have thought the AFL would botch up a fixture?

Rain, Hail, Shine, Snow. Normal football weather.

We paid $1.01 someone would make the Dees reference.

Does Shane Mumford go on a skiing trip every year? Is that the joke?

Nowhere near enough snow or long-sleeve jumper talk if you ask me.

Turns out Clarko loved the cold, hopefully not cold enough to deny Roughy a farewell game..
