Notes

* The leading goalkicker was Kelvin Templeton of Footscray with 91 goals
* The Brownlow Medal was won by Peter Moore
* The record for greatest winning margin was set twice during 1979.
**In Round 4, Collingwood defeated St Kilda by 178 points, breaking the record set sixty years earlier, in the 1919 VFL season by South Melbourne.
**Collingwood's new record was broken only three months later in Round 17, when Fitzroy defeated Melbourne by 190 points, a record which has yet to be broken at the end of 2007.
* Fitzroy's score of 36.22 (238) in the same game also set the record for highest score in a VFL/AFL game. This beat the record set by Footscray in the 1978 VFL season by twenty-five points, and remained the record for 13 years (i.e., until the 1992 AFL season).
