As promised last week, it's an all-positive edition of the Notebook, featuring Richmond and Liam Baker, the Suns and Izak Rankine, along with Brisbane's favourable matchup against Port Adelaide.
How Daniel Rich found so much space is on the agenda, along with what Sydney's win over Richmond means and a few mini-thoughts about Melbourne, Geelong and West Coast.
First things first, an apology for no post last week. Thankfully there's a post this week with plenty to discuss both from a team and individual perspective.
Halfway through FootyMania, there's plenty to take in as we approach the home stretch building towards finals.
