A contract, a Crows Crib and a catch-up with a fan favourite headlined a busy week on afc.com.au.

The most popular article was our latest ‘Where are they Now?’ piece featuring 200-gamer Graham Johncock.

The rebounding defender reflected on his early days in Port Lincoln, brilliant AFL career and his current role as a player/coach for the famous Mallee Park Football Club.

We also discovered how close Johncock came to becoming a Hawk in the 2000 National Draft.

Our interview with Johncock kicked off a week of Indigenous Round celebrations online.

Forward Eddie Betts spoke about the significance of the AFL’s Sir Doug Nicholls Indigenous Round, saying that being part of the important round was second only to playing in a Grand Final.

Betts also spoke about his role as a mentor, and gave an insight to ‘mob night’ at his house every week.

We also got a look inside the self-designed home of Richard Douglas in the latest ‘Crow Cribs’ with Sam Jacobs.

Young midfielder Rory Atkins gave fans a mid-week lift by signing a new two-year deal.

Atkins, who has played every game this season, talked about wanting to repay the faith of the Club that selected him with pick No.81 in the 2012 National Draft.


Captain Taylor Walker also brought a smile to the face of one supporter in particular as part of our #CrowsWish campaign. Watch Tex’s phone call to an unsuspecting grandmother, who scored herself tickets to Saturday night’s game against Greater Western Sydney.
