Round 10

Bloody hell.
1/2 time in Adelaide and the Crows have had 27 scoring shots to the Muppets 3. If they had kicked even remotely straight it would have been 100 points in front by 1/2 time. Has that ever happened?

Fairly sure Brisbane had a 100 point lead over Freo once at the Gabba at half time back in the late 90s....

Yes, round 20, 1999 -half time was 131-18, so 113 point margin. Oddly enough, Brisbane only won by 114.

Yeah, I wouldn't be laughing too hard. At least they got smashed by a top team and not an 0-4 team that couldn't get within 14 goals of the GC Suns.

A question for the experts then.

Ross Lyon has now coached his first 100 point loss. Has he ever had a 100 point win?

I ask this because normally I would expect a coach of 250 games to have done so. But, given the way he coaches (super negative; who cares if we only kick 6 goals as long as the opposition only kick 5 etc.) it is possible it hasn't happened.

Yes. Freo's last 3 wins of the 2013 season were by 113, 95 & 74 points respectively.
