The Australian Football League ( AFL ) is the pre-eminent professional competition of Australian rules football. Liam Ryan's mark might be the most athletic play in AFL history . Yes the towering 'speckie' over Melbourne ruckman Max Gawn was a sight to behold itself.

I went pretty broad with this video. Here are some of the most athletic plays in all of football compiled into one video. Hope you guys enjoyed! If this

Why this is the most athletic play in AFL history© AAP Ryan's stunning fourth-quarter grab left Demons ruckman Max Gawn floored in the goal square Another round of thrilling AFL action is in the books with the AFL ladder finally beginning to take shape.

Round 9 began at Optus Stadium on Friday night with the Eagles overcoming a gallant Demons side, the highlight being Liam Ryan's hanger, more on him in a bit.

Saturday provided some pulsating contests with the never-say-die Swans pulling a rabbit out of the hat again, whilst Essendon held on in a must-win game against Freo.

Sunday saw some of the league's premiership contenders flexing their muscles.

Harvey Keitel to play Meyer Lansky in gangster biopic

Harvey Keitel to play Meyer Lansky in gangster biopic Veteran US actor Harvey Keitel is headlining a new biopic about Jewish mobster Meyer Lansky, who was a close friend and contemporary of notorious gangster Bugsy Siegel, the distributors said Saturday. Entitled "Lansky", the film focuses on the latter part of his life when the now retired-boss of Murder Inc. was in his 70s and living anonymously in Florida's Miami Beach, Voltage Pictures said. When Lansky takes on a journalist to tell his story, played by "Avatar" actor Sam Worthington, the FBI use him as bait to entrap the underworld kingpin whom they suspect of stashing away millions. The film is in pre-production with shooting due to start in August.

In our Tales from the American Football League community, we have a number of readers who either played in the AFL , or grew up watching games. I was thinking the other day, wondering what might be considered the most memorable play in league history .

With all the action complete, here's what we learned from Round 9:

Liam Ryan's mark might be the most athletic play in AFL history

Yes the towering 'speckie' over Melbourne ruckman Max Gawn was a sight to behold itself. But the beauty of what is likely to be this year’s Mark of the Year winner is Liam Ryan’s incredible lead-up work.

Watching the mark in isolation does not do justice to how good an aerobic effort it was from the Eagles high-flyer.

Australian rules football began its evolution in Melbourne, Australia about 1858. The origins of Australian football before 1858 are still the subject of much debate

The play actually starts in the Eagles’ back half before Ryan appears as the release man in the centre of the ground.

Mark Hutchings picks up the loose ball and handballs it to Eagles skipper Shannon Hurn.

Hurn then laces a kick out to Ryan in the middle of the ground before Ryan finds Josh Kennedy about 70m out from the Eagles’ goal.

After kicking the ball to Kennedy, Ryan makes a full sprint and does not stop until he lands after taking the mark.

What’s genius is the fact that not only does he not stop, he arcs his run slightly away from the contest to lose his marker Bayley Fritsch, whilst simultaneously giving himself a runway to sit on Gawn’s head.

Ryan has shown an ability to pull off the unthinkable in his short career while failing to pull off the basics. If he is able to do the easy parts better, the Eagles have themselves a keeper.

Matt de Boer is officially the AFL's giant killer

He has become the AFL’s midfield giant killer this season and in Round 9 GWS Giants tagger Matt de Boer added Carlton skipper Patrick Cripps to his list.

Controversial US gymnastics coach gets all-clear Down Under

Controversial US gymnastics coach gets all-clear Down Under Rhonda Faehn is a former international gymnast who was vice-president of USA Gymnastics, but left that post last year in the wake of the infamous Larry Nassar affair. Nassar is a doctor who is now serving a long jail term for abusing athletes. Faehn raised concerns about Nassar internally in 2015, and testified against him last year, but was criticised by triple Olympic gold medallist Aly Raisman, among others, for not going to authorities earlier. In January this year, Faehn was hired by the University of Michigan, but after backlash was fired the next day.

At just 24 years of age, Cripps has become one of the more dominant midfielders in the league, with his 195cm frame hard to stop inside, but the midfield bull was held in check by de Boer in the Giants’ 93-point drubbing of the Blues.

The Carlton skipper is often quite mild-mannered and refuses to get flustered at the best of times but lashed out as a result of being held to just 12 disposals by de Boer.

You can add Cripps to the list of midfielders nullified by the Giant which now includes former Brownlow Medallists Dustin Martin and Nat Fyfe.

The extent to which Cripps has dominated the entire league is what makes de Boer holding him to just 12 touches all the more incredible.

The last time the Blues skipper was held below 12 touches was in Round 16, 2016, a game where he was unable to finish after breaking his leg.

De Boer is the perfect compliment to the Giants’ silky smooth midfield unit, a unit that saw Lachie Whitfield, Josh Kelly and Tim Taranto all finish above 30 disposals each.

Beware of the Collingwood goal avalanche

Depending on which side of the coin you look at this, it can be considered a major flaw or a major weapon for the Magpies.

In two consecutive weeks, facing lesser opponents, the Magpies have flirted with danger for three quarters before blowing the opposition out of the water in the final term.

It was a seven-goal final term against the Blues in Round 8 that led the Magpies to an eventual 19-point win, and the Pies incredibly topped that effort in Round 9.

The Saints have been one of the biggest feel-good stories of the season and in the absence of Darcy Moore and Jordan de Goey, the Magpies appeared to be heading towards a shock defeat.

However, the Magpies turned on the afterburners once again in the final term, kicking an incredible six unanswered goals before the Saints even scored in the final term.

A late consolation goal to Josh Battle blotted the Pies’ score-chart, but incredibly over the final two 4th quarters, the Pies have outscored the opponent by a whopping total of 64 points.

The Pies’ incredible finishing abilities come after they spent the early part of the season blowing teams out of the water in the first quarter.

In Australian rules football , a ruckman or ruckwoman is typically a tall and athletic player who contests at centre bounces and stoppages (such as boundary throw-ins and ball-ups). The ruckman is one of the most important players on the field.

The AFL's great sleeping giant is slowly waking from its slumber

There could be a no more intimidating sight on Sunday afternoon than Dustin Martin running riot at the MCG while Seven cameras showed Tigers skipper Trent Cotchin on the sideline.

What Richmond has been able to do in the early part of the season after losing All-Australians left, right and centre has been nothing short of remarkable.

After consecutive drubbings at the hands of Collingwood and the GWS Giants, the Tigers made the daunting trip to Adelaide to take on the Power sans Rance, Cotchin, Riewoldt and Martin and somehow pulled a win out of the fire.

Since then, the Tigers have lost Riewoldt for a second time, while Cotchin and Rance are yet to set foot on an AFL field, with Rance unlikely to do so for the remainder of the year.

Great teams in any sport find a way to get a result and that is exactly what the Tigers have done over the past month.

Outside of the Aaron Naughton-led Bulldogs onslaught two weeks ago, the Tigers have slowly gotten back to playing some of their best football.

Central to that resurgence is the return to form of Dustin Martin, who was outstanding on Sunday against the Hawks with 37 touches and two goals.

Despite the spate of injuries, Richmond sits in equal third position and is well and truly in contention to secure a top-four spot.

Round 10 presents yet another opportunity for a statement game: the Dreamtime at the ‘G clash against Essendon on Saturday night.

Don’t be surprised if the Tigers put the Jekyll and Hyde Bombers to the sword with a commanding win.

Geelong is the most potent attacking team in the competition

Geelong’s forward line overhaul over one summer is undoubtedly one of the more remarkable things we have seen in recent years.

Comparing this year’s Cats bunch to the side that limped out of last year’s finals series is like chalk and cheese.

Gone are the days where Tom Hawkins was the sole hope up forward with Chris Scott’s only change-up being sending Harry Taylor up the ground to clunk some marks.

Nine rounds into this season, Geelong is the only team with three of the league’s top 15 goal-kickers.

Despite the addition of Gary Rohan and Gary Ablett into the forward line, Hawkins has lost none of his potency, sitting second on the AFL goal-kicking table with 23 majors. Not far behind him are Rohan (20) and Ablett (18).

Why this is the most athletic play in AFL history© AAP Gary Rohan's addition to Geelong's forward line has made for a nightmare for opposing teams

Geelong has also shown a ruthless level of efficiency when going forward, averaging just 10 behinds per contest as opposed to 15.2 goals per game. Simply put, get them in front of the big sticks and you’re at their mercy.

Having a number of forward line targets has meant that defensive units have been unable to key in on one player, leaving the Cats to score at will when they enter into the forward 50.

Geelong score on a remarkable 55.5 percent of its Inside 50s per game, a number which was on full show against the Western Bulldogs on Saturday as the Cats mustered 29 scoring shots on 50 Inside 50s.

Keep that sort of ruthlessness up and this unit is going to be mighty hard to stop come September.
