It's that time again to take a lighter look into yet another big week of AFL.
Here's what's happened this week.
Happy Halloween Footy Fans 🎃 👻
Richmond posted their favourite Halloween films to Twitter and Instagram with their own personal touch to the characters starring in these Halloween thrillers. The films include Edward Scissor Hands, The Silence of the Lambs, A Nightmare on Elm Street and I know what you did last Summer.
However fans believe the club may have missed a few notables, scroll below to see what they suggested!

Nathan Vardy's New Premiership Ink
Inspired by the scanning of QR codes, former West Coast player Nathan Vardy has crafted a QR code tattoo on his foot that links to Dom Sheed's 'iconic goal' in the 2018 West Coast Eagles premiership Grand Final.

Take a look at what fans had to say on Twitter about Vardy's new tattoo 👀
Nathan Vardy’s tattoo won’t be so great when it links to a page that says ‘This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim’

Everyone is missing the footy 🙁
Without the footy to follow each week many AFL fanatics have the summertime sadness... who else feels like this guy below? ✋
Collingwood celebrates the festival of Diwali!
Collingwood celebrated Diwali with Sundar Lyer from the Hindu Council of Australia. Lyer spent the day with players, educating them on the history of the celebration as well as sharing traditional food.
Suns hit the coast for a different kind of cross-training... perhaps the secret ingredient for a potential premiership 🤔
Two days ago the Gold Coast Suns accompanied athletes from the Surfers Paradise Surf Club for a group training session on the beach. The Suns along with three-time Nutri-Grain Ironman Champion Ali Day hit the sand to ramp up the off-season training.
