And this week, with 4 more, the tally clicks over to 41 games with margins of 60 or more points to equal the 2013 record.
The imbalance in footy continues to grow.
These blow-outs also make it hard to tip and keep your MAE in check. A weekly MAE of 40.1 will probably be the end to meeting the season goal of 30.0 or less.

Tipping wise, it was a return of 7, under the usual tipping competition rules of calling a draw a 'correct tip'. It was also a surprising 71 points under the Monash system which lifts these calculated tips into 10th place.
Now tenth may not seem a great outcome, but this is certainly better than 45th of round 5. And the current score of 1520 is tracking around the goal set at season start.
In the table, three pairs of teams swap places.
Sydney return to 3rd with a win and Fremantle performing almost perfectly as expected.
Port Adelaide sit in 8th after upsetting the Hawks, and Geelong should have done better than drawing with St Kilda. Saints though to their credit played well and deserve their rise to 13th.
