Playing time

In order to meet the requirements of the television broadcasters, the AFL adjusted the playing time allocated to each of a match's four quarters for this season. Playing time was reduced from 25 minutes to 20 minutes, however some additional stoppages attracted "time-on" allocations; the total reduction of playing time was approximately 10%.

Awards

* The Brownlow Medal was awarded to Greg Williams of Carlton.
* The Leigh Matthews Trophy was awarded to Greg Williams of Carlton.
* The Coleman Medal was awarded to Gary Ablett of Geelong.
* The Norm Smith Medal was awarded to Dean Kemp of West Coast.
* The AFL Rising Star award was awarded to Chris Scott of Brisbane.
* The Wooden Spoon was "awarded" to the Sydney Swans.

Notable Events

* The AFL increases the number of interchange players to three which, when added to the "run on" team of 18 on-the-field players, increasing the standard team squad size to 21 players.
* The "blood rule" was introduced in order to allay fears raised by the threat of AIDS.
* The AFL introduced a third field umpire.
* The reduction in a match's amount of elapsed playing time (see above).
* The Second McIntyre "Final Six" system, which had operated in 1992 and 1993, was replaced by the McIntyre "Final Eight" system. The McIntyre "Final Eight" system operated from 1994 to 1999; it was replaced by the AFL’s Amended "Final Eight" system in 2000.
* The third qualifying final between North Melbourne and Hawthorn was the first ever AFL game to require extra time, after the teams were tied at 91 after four quarters. The provision for extra time was introduced after the controversial 1990 finals series, where the qualifying final between Collingwood and West Coast was tied, forcing a replay the following weekend which gave top team Essendon a second bye weekend. North Melbourne dominated extra time and won the game by 23 points.
