Rohan Connolly’s top five unforgiven AFL feuds

The Age‘s Rohan Connolly has complied another top five list for his chat with Francis Leach on SEN Afternoons on Thursday, this week choosing his top five AFL feuds that never ended.

Connolly has trawled back through the past 30 years to find five of the biggest feuds in the AFL, with the people involved ranging from coaches to players, and even assistants.

5.  Tyson Edwards v Andrew McLeod

This particular feud didn’t necessarily involve both players, but more so their partners.

The pair’s wives were best friends until a dispute in 1997 saw them have a falling out, which resulted in Edwards and McLeod avoiding each other everywhere but the footy field.

“Bottom line was that they stopped speaking to each other except when they played together for the Crows on the field,” Connolly said.
