Welcome back to the on the board podcast. This is another episode of the greatest podcast in Australian history. Were here again to chat about AFL. FIRST AFL one in two weeks, I think. Didn't do one last week and then the two before that were, you know, bit different. Wasn't all three of us. So we're back finally as a trio. Thanks Boys, for holding the Fort Down a little bit on the road. One by himself and you boys did one without me as well. Well, I got my exams done and went to Tazi and stuff like that. But we're back now and we will be doing weekly episodes for the rest of the year, I assume him, unless something goes horribly wrong, but will. Well, I don't do we need introduce you boys. Now you have we can you can say how you doing. Well, when we get into the winners and loses. So where doesn't loses? Let's get straight into it. Rowy, who were the first winners and how are you going? I'm gone right, my it's good to be back after a bit of a week break. Just went off enjoy the sunshine away from the PODCASTS. Now I was no, it was good to Um have a bit of times my self over the breaker, recovering from Uni as well and a potentially failed exam. So sort of spend a bit of time and attention to myself. But anyway, so the first we'd it was obviously Gold Coast against the tags. That was the probably the upset of the year. It was look all fans of AFL, apart from Richard Fans, of benefiting from this. It was awesome to see, especially likes of took Miller, who is just running around is actually everyone's favorite player. Outs also see and get some recognition because he's he's been a pretty good player for a while but now he's turned into an absolute bull. He's probably top five minutes in the Colm right now. So in mass steady, six touches, seven marks, seven tackles, and I remember he was on about six touches in the first minute. He's an absolute machine. But yeah, in general, Gold Coast obviously have had their traveling woes in the past or just about their entire lifetime of the AFL. So it was good to see them Tuk Cup victory again. It's a similar crowd. That would get a metricn at marvel. But yeah, it's especially against the rain premiers it was awesome and for all fans of the AFL to see that happened show that Richmond are well and truly mortal against so I'm that there's no doubt. I'm not sorry. I've got no doubt the tags in a bounce back in some form of way, but it was great to see gold coat skin on the wing list. Couple of others. I'm going to mention GEWS against the day's. I think a few might have seen this is a potential upset, but most people went the day's way. But it was great to see the giants get up, considering their loss to Hawthorne the week before that at the G so proved that they can play there, indeed, contradicting themselves from that two thousand and nineteen grand final. But it was great to see that the day's aren't immortal, as Betty thought the start of the year when there were lossless, if that's a word, because yeah, it's great to see that all teams this top a are relatively even. Anyone can beat anyone on any given date, any given grounds. So it was awesome. Seed giants there, Josh Kelly and massing a huge game there. I'm turns of Twenty Nine touches, seven tackles and a goal. Probably the main stat here of that game, and the other big winner was obviously the Swan's over ninety point victors over the eagles. I was down at GMHBA. That was ridiculous. I'd to be honest. I didn't set that coming. I did tip the SWAN's. I think I was on the Eagles to the last Middleb I thought Swan's appointed bit better form eagles a bit up and down. So I'll back the swan's, even though on paper it's still a bit hard to believe that they're actually as good as they are. But yeah, they just play with such confidence and I just I can't remember seeing a team, apart from the Richmond that we all know in the last sort of four or five years, play with such confidence, and I mean that turning all these sort of be grade players into guys to contribute everywhere around the ground. You know, the players like the Sam Weeks, George Hewitt's, even guys coming in like Joel a mardy kick to and conjumiting in the Rock and had twelve touches. So not to mention the likes of, you know, the consistent forms of mills and Franklin and all them, and our favorite Tom hikey's. So yeah, the swans were deaf mely a winner from one. Touch on the Eagles and the losers, because they're definitely in there. But yeah, it's the way this one's were abol to go about it. Absolutely kill another member of the top eight and show that they're definitely a force we reckon with. Yeah, a hundred percent. They were my three written down as well, pilch. How you go, mate, and do you have any other winners you want to add? Yeah, good, thanks, mate. Yeah, three absolutely elite results that rolly just touched on. There couldn't ask for a better week of footy, to be honest, as a port supporter, especially for more reports. Our Man Kelly Clarkson was absolutely huge in the gws game. Then you're ten coaches...

...votes and pretty much put the side on his back. I'll quickly just give my poor boys and mention most emotional big occasion for the hawks. To be honest, they didn't really turn up, even though they should have, but port came down away from home one comfortably, and Zach butters is returning this week for the Melbourne game. So was very pleased with this week. Premiership contend to eating a bottom to team thirty, but that's right. I appreciate it. I saw your antics on twitter. Check them out. If you haven't, you were. I thought it was quite unnecessary, but you're ripping into awthor. Fair enough, I guess what your best they deserved it may yeah, fair, strange man. Any any loss? You want to touch on pilch? Yeah, so Richmond and west coast, especially to massive loss. It's getting to the point now where Richmond are in serious danger of not making the eight. I know hey mh has been had them at like a seventy percent chance to win the flag or year and probably still does. But they are seriously struggling at the moment and they're gonna have to turn something around. And then West Coast, one of my most disliked teams in the COMP was. I absolutely loved seeing them lose by hundred and hopefully they don't make the eight. But we'll see what happens when they get back to optus. They'll probably win every game it optus. Yeah, happily see them miss out over gws or Freeo, but not sure if it will happen. We will get to your top eight predictions in a SEC. Yeah, I don't think my richmond thing was ever at seventy percent, but yeah, it was definitely still more or less. Mate, there's definitely still the favorite till last week. I think this is the first week. Well, I can see that they're probably into about third favoritism for me now. But yeah, row he any loses, or do you want to touch on those loss more now? I piached sod up pretty nicely there. Tigers. Look, I've still honestly, it's like my super coach team. I never, ever, ever, can completely rule someone out from, you know, being a good player, until I not, not don't get them in, and then they obviously explored. I don't have a feeling Richmond's going to do the same. You know, I'm if I once I write them off, they're going to, you know, obviously make finals. They're going to be this there richmond selves. But yeah, but like obviously there are big loser this week and this is the first week that I think all eyes are on them now. The last few weeks we thought all this usually happens during the richmond year. By by they have a few losses, but this one was different. I think it's fair to say. So all eyes will beyond them this week against the pies. They will be a huge match and obviously, yeah, west coast was a big loser this week just, you know, scoring twenty six as a top eight team against a team on paper you're a you are better than I think on paper. No one's really going to argue with that. And at a neutral venue you can't be losing by that much of a utual venue against a team that you're probably better than on paper. But another big loser actually, just to quickly touch on them, was free I. I actually went to this game free of Carlton. Obviously a very winnable game for them. If they wanted to be making finals, they needed to win this one. Carlson, look, you could, they could have easily beaten them. It only really good it got to that last quarter. Sorry, and it just got to the point where free I just didn't look like scoring. So at that point I knew look, carton got this in the bag. Luckily their fans haven't all sort of come out and said they're making finals, because that's what they usually do when they win. But yeah, it's just it's just another disappointing result for them. Happens a lot. It's sorry it's happening more and more recently now for them and it is getting to the time in the JE have to start winning these sort of close games against likewise oppositions. So, yeah, another disappointing result for them. Hopefully they can bounce back, but it's yeah, it looks like their seasons probably done. They probably won't make finals now and next season we kind of have to be expecting some bigger things from them, or else a few more eyes are going to be on them. Yeah, I was pretty shadow with that result, I think. I think I had an awful week in tipping now that we're going through these results, like I don't reckon told have been lucky to get for. But yeah, I also want to touch on Melbourne losing to gws. I know Gwus a pretty solid team. I'd say they're well that they're now and they I believe. But before, when the top eighted been the same for like six weeks, there they were the best of the rest in my opinion. But I think Melbourne now, if you're a top four team in finals, you a hundred percent want them, like if you're another top four team, just thinking they're by far the easiest match up in finals, and we've been joking about it for a long time, that they've got straight sets written all over them, and I feel like some of their results in the last month a sort of suggesting that's going to be very, very likely. I don't...

...know how you would feel pilch of pulled rolled into them in the second week of finals, but I'll probably fancy my chances against them. Personally, just saying I actually I talked it's about this few weeks ago when, and I've caught it for everyone, I said that Adelaid would upset them and I copp an absolutely earbashing at twenty one, froom was and all them. But no, it's like say, predicted this, not downfall, but I predicted this sort of coming back down to worth. And Yeah, yeah, well, well for it, I was. I'll sign the all graphs later, but yeah, carry on. Yeah, so I think we've touched on most of the wins and loses. There there's a couple other games they're really need touch a. well done to the saints, I Guess Rowe got the job done. Turns a good win into a shit win, but yeah, win outside. They know it's yeah, if we'd won that, that Adelaide match and that, I mean you can say that's been every team. If you won this, if you want this. But yeah, if we'd won that, Adelaide and Sydney, both of those ones we should have won, would be in there. But yeah, I just we've got a very hard, fixed coming up. There's no no point even mentioned the word finals. It's not going to happen. But next year, last little attempt at their reverse jinks. Yeah, fingers crossed. But yeah, but looks like the ditching the hoodies helping. But we'll see what happens. To put that back on, predicted top eight time boys. Will Start with you, Roy. Who Have you got in your top eight? Well, I gave the top a arrest couple of weeks ago because I just want to have a week or two to restart, because it seemed like I just sort of kept on the same thing over and over again, switching one another. Bet I'm gonna locky in the dogs at the top, followed by the lines and a close second. I think the lines will leap from the day's. I think they're fix is very easy lines. I don't think they'll get. I think they need extra two wins to overtake the dogs. I don't think they'll get that. So I think I reckon they might finish on the same amount of points the dogs in the lines, but I'll have the dogs finish on top. I'll have the D's in a third. So and so they'll be a line D's qualifying file at the GABBA. Total smashing that. I reckon. Cats in at fourth. Unfortunately pill took up port in a fifth, and Sydney and it's sixth, lining up against West Coast again, but this time at the seg that could be two hundred points. And then I've Yeah, look, like I said, I'm not ridding them off until I see him out of the ace. Came the end of around twenty three. So I'm going to still have richmond in there. Still think I just can't put Richmond out of the eight when they've got dusty, they've got, you know, Lynch re well, they've got grimes, they've got lost, they've got all these guys, obviously, that have all one premierships. I'm not putting them out of the eight until like literally, even if they game and forty percent behind, you know the eighth before round twenty three. I'm still going to have them in at eight. I just can't see the missing until they are out. So I'm going to leave them in at eight, but would love to see them slip out. Yeah, I wouldn't rather them off just yet. And I tell you what, I'd be bricking it as a port fan. Come out against the tags and weak one and elimination fo yeah, that would not be not be fun, especially when Sydney and West Coast to chilling and the other one, which. Who's your top eight, mate? Yep. So I've also got the dogs in it. First, they're already first and they look like the most dangerous team in it. Brizzy second as well, to Lolong. Third, above Melbourne, I think. I think Melbourne are dangerous because they're for and no against top five teams, I believe, which is actually pretty insane. But they're just prone to that's still inconsistent, prone to dropping games to shit teams. Yeah, port fifth. I was tempted to check them at first but didn't want to get I didn't want to get roasted. Put Him at fifth, swanny six, Richmond Seventh, and then I've actually got gws in an eight over the eagles. I've gone with my heart over my head on that one, jet but they're I think they're hitting form and they've done it before, so would not be surprised. Yeah, make up for some spicy second week finals action, I reckon, because I'd be back in Richmond over the SWANNE's and I'll be back and poured over the giants. That's got me tell you. I hope lines come against the caps in week one. I reckon. I'd be a sick match at the gather. Yeah, I reckon. There's a soul chance. I feel like they're long playing a lot of really, really good Games, but it. Yeah, no, to be fair, probably being a little bit harsh on Melbourne, but yeah, you are right. This week it's going to be a big test. After say, if they beat port and Adelaide, can't really keep slandering them. So'll be interesting to see how they go or are. Time for my favorite part of the episode, will the only part where I really share my thoughts. Redrafting time. Boys, we're down to the two thousand and eleven...

...draft. We're getting to some end of career type stuff here, lads. We're probably only got a few more year, while probably only got a few more seasons in me before I have to start calling it quits. But I think I'll start us off as usual and you boys can correct my blunders. I will say I've got two blokes who were eat like one year mature and I've just included them. So I think. Well, I'll say it when I get to it, because I worked on a spoil it. Some Honorable Mansions go. This was a great draft, by the way. Excited to see your orders. Honorable Mentions go to Caneleo, sever Ross and Jadwitz, who was one of those one year mature players. All three very, very solid club players, but weren't good enough to make this pretty esteemed list for me. and number ten quite comfortably the worst player in the list, I'd have to say. But he's his list of achievements pretty impressive. Brand Ellis two premierships with the tags. He came second in a Richmond Ben F I think. I feel like he's gone missing at Gold Coast, but he's like still elite, but it's just because he's at the gold post sons. No one talks about him, but like pretty sure he was top five and there being f this year and our last year and he's had some really good games this year. So he's one. Number ten, he kind of came out of the blocks as a youngster. Brand Ellis stagnated a little bit throughout the dominant phases but was still a very good part of that premiership side. Number Nine I've got tail Adams. Things a bit of unsung hero when Collingwood were top for side and you know, lost that granny and stuff like that. They should have want a premiership in that era but they fucked it and he got an Australian last year. I believe one a collingwood best and fairest in around that time. So yeah, unfortunately hasn't how much luck with injuries in the well this year and a few years prior to the last season. But yeah, hopefully he play some injury free footy soon and get back to his best form. Number Eight, I've got Sam Docherty. This was for me. He was a hard one to place, so obvious see Mr couple seasons three injury, but he's want to come best and fairest and he's also been an Australian player. Still got a fair few years ahead of them as well, but it's going to be interesting to see how the rest of his career affairs because they've obviously got some gun halfbacks now, so he's sort of been shifted to a different position, so will be interested to see where he ends up on the ground. Number seven. This was another hard one to position. I found chadwing guard came out of the Blox in his career as a an absolute weapon and he's been decent at hallform but certainly hasn't been the player he once was. Sort of a change of roles, I guess, but yeah, he's bit more mythical these days. I don't really know how he's gone in his life, but to Australians in his career one port best of Ferris as well as a very, very young player. So yeah, he's achievements so far deserve a top ten spot but in terms of current ability and potential probably limits his ability to be a top five candidate. Number six. This is one of my other players who were a year but sure he was tough for me. At one point I had him at number three and then I looked at the guys belom and I thought he had just hadn't wrapped up enough achievements and maybe hadn't played enough games. But that's Nick Haines, one of the best tool defenders going around in the League right now. Made all Australian appearance and yeah, I just think hopefully in a couple of years I think this gws defense has the makings of one of the best defenses in the competition. They've got a lot of young talent. He can sort of be an experienced member there, but I think he's already like twenty nine, so not sure how long he has left in his Homi's and stuff are starting to challenge him, so we'll see how he ages. Number five I've got Elliot Yo's won a premiership with west coast, also on the West Coast Best of Therriss that year, to Australian appearances, one other west coast being F as well. Just been a very, very solid player throughout his career and well, hopefully he can be a big reason why they make a late season sort of run at finals this year. Another for weird guy to play, similar to Chadwing Guard. A lot of his successes early in his career. But I've got Brad Hill, controversial because he's nowhere near the player that, like Yo Haines, are right now, but he did win three premierships at Hawthorne. He also won a free Oh best and fairess, so I thought he did deserve his spot and although right now he's performances are heavily criticized, every now and then I just think he's a body of work. Is Good enough to be a number four pick. Then the top three for me were a fair way above the rest. I've got Tommy Chawlt number three. He's obviously one. One brandlow metal to all Australians is how to Players Association player of the year to Hawthorn best and fairess. He's absolute beast too. It was...

...killing it late near Sydney career as a bit of a tager and then he went to Hawthorne and had the was given the right to find his own footy and his impact is questioned at times but he has an unbelievable knack to find it and he's been a pretty important cog in that Hawthorn midfield in the last few years. Number to controversial, I've got lucky neal. He's got one brownlow metal under the bell to Brizzy Best Stin Ferris. A coach has player of the year which is a pretty big award if the coaches think hill of highly of you a players association play the and to all Australians, was an absolute beast back in these days at Freeo, but was sort of under the shadow of a few of the big dogs. They're like Monday and fife and stuff, and then he transitioned over to brizzy and he was the main man and now run probably sees how good of a players he's obviously improved since then as well, but hopefully he'll be able to add a premiership to his list of achievements in the next few years. And my number one. I don't know if people would have in this high because his achievements are as impressive, but for me right now he's a top five player in the competition. I don't think there's many plays if you take him out of there. Not many players have as much impact on their side as this man does. Toby Green, he's only got the one Australian appearance and he's only got the one club best and fairest but, as I mentioned, in terms of current ability, right now for me he's the best player in this list and I can't see why I can't do that in the next three or four years as well. And also, as I was talking to you boys before we came on are did not know he was an absolute beast inside midfield or when he came to the League, which is a bit that was news to me. He was like the top disposal winner in their normal season as a rookie or something like that was it's pretty strange. But yeah, he's an absolute gun up in the forward line and yeah, he's a frequent of my favorite players. So not everyone's consensus number one artist shoot, but for me is the number one pilch. What's your top ten night? Yeah, I've mine is quite different. Actually. I will say before we start that I've taken team success less into account for this and I've kind of just gone who I think is the most valuable top ten players or most talented. So at number ten I've got row. He's man said Ross a lot of the players on this list, I feel like peaked pretty early. There's quite a few of them, and he was one. Used to be a very good midfielder. Now it just kind of does his job like I don't really know much about him, to be honest, but I know that he was a very good player and still is a good player for the saints. Number Nine, I've done the same as you caught. Well, I've included him in. That's jared wits. I know he was a mature age draft pick but he's been an absolute weapon of a Rapman, arguably a top five Rahman over the last few years and also a huge leader for the sun's number eight, Stephen Conelio. Cops a bit of criticism, but the man is a gun. Has Been through quite a few years, huge ball winning ability and can keep goals to. Number Seven, Sam dockerty. Unlucky with injuries but was probably the best halfback flanker in the comp a few years back and huge leader as well. Provides the blues with some valuable experience down back. Number six, tailor Adams. I think this blokes pretty underrated. Gun midfielder and, Yep, just talented player. Number Five, very similar to Taylor Adams, but I've got Elliott. Yeah, to be honest, they were. You could put them five or six however you want. They're pretty similar, but yo is probably a bit more versatile and he does have the premiership under his belt. Number four, slightly biased, but arguably the most talented play in this draft. Chadwing guard. He came on to the scene, he was just an absolute weapon for a good four five years and then just made the stupidest decision of his life, went to Hawthorne, became an Absolute Myth, just dropped off the boil. He's still a very good player and probably underrated because he's at Hawthorne, but he was an absolute freak of port and he was just starting to move into the midfield before he left. So dumb decision by Chatty, but gun play. Our number three, I've got toby green. I will say there's definitely a tear break. The top three are a lot better than the four, tore and ten, but I've got green at three, Tom Mitchell at to and locky kneel at one. They're very fair list. They're mate. Surely chatty's looks have been taked into account there as well? He's probably broken...

...a fair few hearts across three cities. Is His life? Multiple per night, mate, Ross. If interested to heat or ten, they right. Yeah, I'll kick it off a few honorable mentions. So jared wits, brandon, Elvis, savy Ross, couple premiership players there. Joe Hammling as well as a premiership player. Obviously a bit of a myth there. Jack nuns after the sirens, specialist and jetpuse. Just chilling there, but we'll kick it off. Number Ten, what Stephen Canelio? He's one of two players in this top ten that hasn't made the Australian but it was obviously being a very consistent contributor for them in gws's lifetime. Obviously Capta at the moment, so he'll fit in nicely there. But everyone else ahead of him just has better regimes and I think, just slightly better players. Number nine, Taylor Adams. May The Australian year last year. Actually forgot about that. Also one of best and fairest but also, most importantly, I think, our best finals player in two thousand and eighteen, obviously the year they just miss you on that premiership. So if only for maybe the umpire had called that blocking decision against I think it was Lem Ryan on May night and all that and Adams, I think, would be higher on this list. But in saying that, obviously who's a very good we say was a very strong reason why they made it that far. Number Eight, Nick Haynes, obviously Gune not made of Australian last year also gws is best and fairest. Just a huge inset player, very important from them down back and hopefully continues to play down there, given I've just brought him into the super coach. Number seven, dockerty obviously started at Brisbane, had done mark but moved over to Carlton. All Australian best and fairest Col and Co captain. I think more really needs to be said. Just one of those players the cult and fans can rely on and there's not many the cold fans. There's not many players can fans can rely on, but he's certainly one of them. So that he's obviously very much loved down there and I know many blues fans really appreciate the work he does. Number six bread, he'll the other player on this list it hasn't actually made in all Australian team but has got three premiership medals around his neck, is the most of any player on this list. has also want to be an effort free? Oh, he's obviously not. You know, he's got some attributes that just about no one else in the League has, or at least he did. Obviously lining quick down that wing, huge stamina and another elite kick. He's obviously been questioned this year but I think he's done enough in his career and that number six spot now at number one of my up to number five of actually got Chad Wing Guard. Obviously we've gone up or and if he had stayed there would have been higher up in that list. Obviously hugely talented to all Australians and a being F and also led ports goal kicking twice. So it was obviously a huge players at junior also highlighted, but his awarding of the Gavinwangana Metal Best I think junior player at Port Adelaide in that season. But however, a number four, I'm actually got a different top three of you boys and number four, Toby Green's actually made it in here just obviously the lack of the regime and hasn't one a Brandlo or a premiership. So He's unfortunate to stick there. Obviously had his injury troubles and suspension troubles. It's difficult to for him to play twenty games in a season. However, he is hundred percent agree with you and I say that he is one that they're obviously the most valuable player, but one of the most valued players at their respective club in the competition. Of that makes sense. I think he's the one player that judo's can't really do without. If they play finals, they're going to need him in there. So he's got that uncanny ability to just make them better and he is one of the best players to watch in the COMP however, and number three, I'm actually going to have Eli Yo. He's obviously a B smidfielder. He's got pace, he's got tackling abilities, got ball winning ability and goal kicking ability. Is made the all Australian team twice. He's won to Bing F but also, most importantly, I'd argue, was a pivotal role in that Eagles Premiership and the finals leading up to it. He's obviously an absolute animal kick that awesome goaling from about forty five fifty out. You know, piople roll the game wrack up one thousand nine hundred and twenty touches gateway fire free kicks. It's kind of put a damp on these performance that day, but if not for that and maybe a couple more touches, would maybe have been in contention for the best on ground. But nonetheless, I think he's absolutely awesome midfielder has got a few more traits that other, you know, a gray midfielders don't have. Hence why I'm going to keep them in there. Number two, I've got Tom Mitchell for me. If you win a brown low you're automatically up there. So teaches brown low. Also the awarding of the Lee Matthews Trophy. So best player in the year one at to Australia are to being our sort of speed from cells. Obviously he's impact his question, but I think people don't like people's definitely undervalue ball willing, a...

...ball winning ability. People do overvalue but also undervalue it. So yeah, if you can it. There's not many people that can go around and win fifty touches if they try really hard. So teach for that reasons in there. But obviously number one of a Lucky Neil. Obviously don't even need to wist off the amount achievements he's got, part from the fact is one for BNS and two all Australians and a brownlow. So he's obviously like it was great to have another draft of the best player comes after pick fifty. So that was a nice little surprise. But yeah, definitely the best player this draft. Lucky nil. There's been a gun at both teams, not just one or the other like a few players on this list. So probably the most consistent performer. And Yeah, it just definitely the best flower. Yeah, we're as you both just mentioned, we are getting into the stage where there's some blokes have had like a gun four or five years and then the turn Shit. So it's kind of hunter judge those blokes. But yeah, I have to say, brother, he'll being another fours, probably probably at he's probably lucky man there. But yeah, probably a value the three prems. But he can cop row question, Rowy, you just set me thinking there with the ball winning ability. How many touches would rory lad have for the halvery third's football team? That wovery thirds for pull team like is because it mean that we're talking about this in Tasmania. Is there a limit of how many you can have? I think it's almost impossible to have more than like sixty. But do you reckon he could legit have a hundred? I reckon you could all right in a third's team. Or can yeah, if you can rack up fifty, like look, lad can rack up forty. Easily. If you do that against, you know, afl players, you can easily get an extra. You know, forty. Cheep, he's Oregon against an extra sixty. Yeah, exactly, exactly, against basically kids, and you know, is it just run every one off their feet. So, yeah, I reckon. If you if you're going with the Tom Rock cliff mindset and literally set out just to get as many tough as if you can, then I reckon he'd be a sniff for it all. Yeah, hundred. If he's trying to actually impact the game, then he probably wouldn't have a hundred. But yeah, I guess you could like run past every free kick and just get them up. That's a foul. Be So difficult. Pretty hard to prevent him getting the nut. And he'd like be way fitter than everyone as well. Yeah, I don't know, I was just thinking about this in the car. Do you talking in a RESI's ones? Games obviously different, but bearing in mind, obviously dominate. But yeah, I think if in a thirds game he'd get over, bearing in mind there's three hundred thousand three hundred, sorry, three thousand three hundred points to go around and there won't be any fourth quarter scaling, because it'll be a blowout. Will would laird get three hundred super coach? Yes, yeah, because, all right, he would. Yeah, well, I reckon he could turn every touch into a goal. In the thirds footy. I think ten running downslute, if physically going through touch. Yeah, I think any like twenty five year old professional athlete could run through a third team. Like, I think you'd have to gang tackle like three in the tackle, something I don't thank you. Imagine if it was danger on. Yeah, no one's tackling him. Maybe Brownie without cracker and could get bulldozed. Yeah, there's probably been. If you name drops in last minute that. If you don't know us, you have no idea. We're talking about that coat. Nolan would start a fight before later, I can. Yeah, coop, coop would stuff. Yeah, I was gonna ask. I was gonna ask how many AFL players do you need to like, turn my footy team into a winning team? But you guys don't know how bad we are, so maybe we'll save that chap for one day, Jack and one. I reckon three. It's ready for your music. A lackman inside me. That key forward. I reckon just Dickson, just charge weeks and grandly, you know you need some going to get it up there and then you just Wen. There's an air, a little fullback. So we haven't got the defense ordered. We just need it. All you need is danger. You just get it in the middle, heat sprints down, kicks it from fifty. Yeah, I reckon. I write. That's BOP, though, because like they could just have it to themselves and Corney. Yeah, anyway, that's absolute drouble from the boys. But time for some super coach chat. And I have to say, boys, I haven't checked my super coach. Why? I don't want to know it. I don't want to know. You know. No, I know, I don't want to know. I know what you got made. So I saw common vines got five and Jaff Buckley got zero, and I saw the Jack Buckleys zero and said I'll take thought. You Traded Buckley? Nah, because I decided I want my five injury trades, not three. So held him. So I've decide I'm not checking till tomorrow afternoon. So that's going to be a disgusting surprise because I know I did shit, but I don't want to know. Okay, so there's not going...

...to be any suit got chat about me this week, but because all I know is I had those two schools and I'm absolutely that they cut about it. Five light, five points from two players. It's not not a good start to the week. But Boys, how did you do? I because I haven't open super coach. I'm actually interested to hear how you got and know Piach did well. Show me you went well, rolly. How did you go? No, I did shit pills. gave me an absolute bath in one of the leagues. I hadn't. Yeah, look, it all started with her common Jones Five, and then a captain in bonds of Peli for eighty three. Also did that. Just a few, yeah, few fairy Shit S as well. Carl Langfood is going to go on my never again hat like hated, most hated player in the COMP. Tayl Daniel and they clich sorry, inclusion a few weeks ago. Sixty eight. And then, to top it all off, I had code, he's a hundred and fifteen, on the bench when I could have had it on field for common Jones is five. So lost a fair amount of points. Luckily didn't drop too much in rank. I dropped. Well, I'm drop seven hundred and thirty two but still in Justin the just outside the top two thousand, but brought in Bailey Dale and the canes for Dockerty and the other force trade I can't remember, but Dale Nicely got a hundred eleven for me. So hopefully can continue for the rest of the year. But yeah, it didn't go superbly but came to bounce back, hopefully. But yeah, seasons when I was really done in terms of trying to get the highest rank. I can well at least try trying to get in such or the top thousand that that dreams weren't truly done for trades left. That's just not going to last, but we'll see how we go. Hopefully bench can keep on playing still at the likes of high or Bianco, newcoman warman and all that. So hopefully they can continue to chalk up some games and hopefully can upgrade my last up. I'll be waitman to hopefully around a five hundred K forward in a few weeks times before finals. But I assume I'm going to have about eight long term injuries come over the next few weeks, so that point won't happen. But we'll see how we go. Yeah, yeah, still a very good chance to win our league, and that for sure. Apart from Hoodie, Hoodie whod he's flying cot. He's friends to think you like to six hundred or something. But apart from him, you're the next best bet. Pilch, how do you get heard? You had a good week. Yeah, had a good week. Scored to five, two, three, back into the top thousand and I got danger field, which was huge. That seemed to be an absolutely massive just moment in the general super coach season for everyone. I kept common Jones, but luckily loop hold him, so he was on the bench. But I did burn my last two trades last week, so I'm full premium, but zero trades left. Already got us. Already got a sniff of some injuries with locky Neil. Had Him on the bench this week and Travis Boke went in for some scans but I think he's playing rain. But yeah, basically I'm just I'm just praying I don't get injuries. I'm trying to go huge these next couple weeks and then hopefully get high enough that I don't drop too much when my play start going down. So I'm fucked for lead, but we'll try and cling on to the top thousand ranking. We'll see, see how we go. I like it desperate play. I have to say. I am your mate, so I want to see you do well, but as someone who has five trades left, I need some premo injuries like I need I don't know who, but I just need a seriously commonplay to go down, because otherwise my decision told my two jowl last week. Color Mills, please. Yeah, I've had him start. No one else has him or parashul. Still Love Him. Actually know, not steal, but yeah, yeah, I don't know what's happening with my team. I haven't checked it yet. So susk tomorrow. Excited to do the research, though. Tom I'm going to tell you what you got, Mat is it above two thousand? Yeah, I don't think so. I can't really remember. Don't tell me. They'll have a cold look for you. Am I it is not about two thousand. Don't tell me. Yeah, so the story is so. The reason I caught my CCJ score on is because I've water minium Briggs in my Ford Line Bench and I was out for dinner before my little brothers, before Mormons, on Thursday night. So I was under the belief I knew Briggs was a chance of being dropped, but at this moment I thought they were both playing and then by the time I had the opportunity to check my phone, obviously the Richmond game is underway. So CCJ was locked and loaded on that field. Otherwise I could have easily avoided them. But to be honest, Waterman only got like thirty, so wouldn't make much difference. But Yeah, the Jack Buckley thing. Obviously it's my fault for still having them, but pretty stiff. Two Copper's...

...euro apparently is actually good in real life, like some of the headlines have been, like rising star defender and all this stuff. So proud of him for being good, but yeah, not not doing much my super coach. But yeah, the dreams pretty much all but gone. I think I'm still only a win outside the top eight, but I think my percentage is fucked now. So probably going to need two wins and how many rounds still finals for I have a feeling. Yeah, it's my think. Well, yeah, I think mightbn just three. So my only chance is if there's some big injuries to some common players, and hopefully a lot of people have burned their trades. But after asking the boys last week. It seems like a run still got trades as well. So I'm not sure how they're sorcery that, but their play to them anyway. Moving on to the week twelve preview. So we did this the other week. I can't remember if you boys do. I think you always did it. I'm not sure if Rowley did it, but what we'll do is we'll do the tipping, but with the line and play. So I've got them here in front of me, so I'll get your boys answers. So yeah, I just read out the matchup and I'll let you know what the lins and you can tell me which way you'd be tipping, because that's a bit more interesting than just normal tipping. So Port vessus Melbourne ports the favorites and the line is two and a half points. Pilch, are you back in? The boys in? I'm just trying to say I'm probably the most excited for this game that I have been all season. This is a huge game and butters is back as well, the most the most exciting player in the COMP and best player of the super draft. But I'm going to say Melbourne just because we can't beat a top four team and therefore I against top four teams. Choose, if I have to say it's and because I want to reverse thinks. It's a it's a tough one because whichever way it goes, like it's an extreme resultful port. Like, if they win, everyone's like on that riding them, if they lose, everyone's abusing them. So and same with Melbourne to yeah, if Melvine do lose, everyone will start to put John on my microscope. WHO, unless it's what I was actually try yeah, I think I know. I agree with everything coach shared. I reckon this will be the weak Paul turn around. So when to jump on port? Yeah, I'm gone appreciate it really right. Four by six essendon versus Adelaide, Essen and our favorites, and the line is nineteen a half points. Row. What do you reckon? Jeez, Essendon, coach, that's actually kind of a big line. Yeah, I'm gonna I'm sorry, Adelaide. Yeah, I've got Adelaide, but only by a matter of points of predicted essence, when by like fifteen. So yeah, it's going to be very tired. A good line, to be fair to supports. They're well played. Carlton Versus Jelong Geelong, obviously the favorites, and the line is twenty. One and a half. Pilch, Jack and Carlton can make a close or not really, I think to along g along cover. Yeah, right, verge along to yeah, I've got a long wing back. Thirty five. I can now cruise hard. Yeah, can't deciptibly. So get that in your multis, if you Catto said the last year. To be fair the famous, that is the easy game. They raised. They raised along's olds to five bucks. I broke out on the system to create, like the my fifth fake account and obviously lost another twenty. But yeah, yeah, do do remember that fateful night. I then next on another close one half one versus Free Oh at the University of Taz Stadium, free of favorites. Just the line is three and a half points. I'm going with freere. Back in them, back in the men by ten points. Rowy, who you got here? I just have been type of game. The hawks, when I'm gonna get Hawks pilch in Tas A. Honestly, I thought the Hawks would dog shit last week against port. But they are coached by clocker. They are but they got their dog shit. That's all right. These are hard this week. I'm going to I'm going to say hawks. Yeah, hawks, yeah, fair enough. Actually, not enough. Free, freer. If free, I lose the PRARE win. I think three are wins. They deserve to get abused. I think free, a win in the lines, only free. So I'm going Frere. Yeah, that was my thinking. But I definitely can see hawks winning this. Tazi has been home to it upsets so far this year, and also haven't even addressed the clock o stuff.

But currently be stuffed GWS versus the Gold Coast Battle of the what are they called? The new teams? The duties attended with no fans. Gws Our favorites. The line is sixteen and a half pilch. Do you I can gold coast continuously. Yeah, and I'll put gdws of my top eight. But what ground is this? That Ballarat? Oh yeah, posedly Ballarat. I don't know why. Okay, now, okay, I fuck it. Gold Coast, Gold Coast Plus Sixteen in I can know. Bring, bring it over. Yeah, I reckon. I could giants to win, but a close ones. I jump onto the song's line. Definitely seen upset. You and I said, had a very quick chat to Ben King. Actually, the saints game or stor him at the halftime break. I actually rudely forgot to talk about his performance against the Tigers, or sort of more focus on noting in fact Max was doing all right for us out there, but completely forgot the fact that he just absolutely tore hichman a new one. But yeah, goodlucks to the market. Will be close going. Yeah, actually, I was like watching these two teams against other teams. I'll be good to watch them together. I'm going gws. Just got them winning by twenty. Doggys. This, this is sidney tight dogy's favorites. The lines. Twenty and a half. I'm going the doggies. I've got them winning by four goals. I've got them at the line as well, to which, what are you back? I'm actually going swanny's for the upset. Here, just Yolo. There they are, genuinely in the line or like headhead, both spicy like well, the line, but upsets like good upset sniff. They're general only good. They came to the Adelaide Oval, which is always a tough game, and almost knocked off port, which is a good effort, and then they APP obviously absolutely obliterated the Eagles last week and they've always showed up against the good teams this season, so I think they are. They'll turn it up and they've got all their players as well. All their young boys are back, so really huge shure. Yeah, I'm actually I'll jump on the swan's line. Not Going to go the head to head. I'm not quite as balls his pillage there, but definitely the Swan's line there. Yeah, also, I need to address how to the Swan's win by ninety. I did caps lute Parker score and Luke Park got like seventy. It's like, how could he best player, get seventy points? He had thirty touches or something like the care if you chop, if you're getting thirty in the ninety point when at least give right. He he got ninety five, but he got. He's been beautifully then, because he's been doing that all season. It's why I traded him out. He gets thirty six touches and then just doesn't even ton up it. I can't. I can't complain with the ninety five to be honest, because he's not good. But like that's going to say if you got because I'm pretty sure pre scaling he was on like low s, but I swear that's happened to him before a few weeks, because I then for these others eat hundred. Yeah, I think because he does chop on the raw stats he is usually lower. So they scale them up because he has bulking pack. But this one's actually a very close line, which, like, I know they're in shit form, but I find pretty weird. Richmond, Collingwood, Richmond a favorites. The line is eight and a half. rolly. What do you reckon? I never tip against Richmond, so I've got a good the richmond line. Yeah, felt. Yeah, I'd like to tip Collingwood, but got to go to safe option here and go richmond. Yeah, I'm Gott. I reckon Richmond. Come out and walk them. I've got question by thirty. And then West Coast. This is Monday night. Fully, I'm pretty sure west coast versus North Melbourne. West Coast. Other favorites. The line is twenty, six and a half. I've got west coast winning by forty. So I'm back on West Coast. In north of been competitive recently, though. PILCH. What are reckon? Yeah, adopt as gotta go west coast. Yeah, full crowd even at that line. Oh well, then west coast by a hundred. Yeah, I'm pretty sure their lockdown ends on Sunday night and they are allowed a full crowd on Monday. Could be wrong, but I swear I've read that on twitter. But, Roley, who are you going with? Yeah, I'll got the eagles here too. Yeah, Nice. That's why it's on Monday as well. There's a game without a line because it is not known what the venue is yet, and that is Brisbane Saint Kilda. If that is a game yet. That is a game. I believe. I'm tipping Brisbane. Obviously we all tip in Brisbane. Yep, Yep, yeah, yeah, sorry, I've got Bris B thirty saints. Have a rough run on my fifty. Thanks. Have a rough as run home. Yeah, that so I didn't put on the top made. Next three weeks are all else. Yeah, there's a couple upset chances, though. This week should be good around. I reckon, as you boys said, I I can hawks over. Frey's definitely one to watch, especially with...

...all the views about Clarko this week. would be true claco fashion to come out and just put on a clinic. The boys could see Melbourne beating pored as well. That's going to be a huge game. I reckon because there's a solid chance that they play in the second week of finals, so it could be big psychologically gone into that one. This is one of the Games of the year and essend in a look like they're now consistently good. But I wouldn't ride off an Adelaide upset. They are no side of the Adelaide overall or anything. But Watch that space and he interesting cause you boys want to make rowy. No, it's good luck to all teams and I can. I just want to see another two miller dominant performance because he's an absolute bull at the moment. I can he could. He has a potentially the best midfielder in the calm and he's very close to it actually the moment. But Derek and they bring back to ball for him. It's a very good question action. See Cools. I think he just run off his feet. To be honest, I don't. I don't think the ball would be able to keep up with him. If took Miller like genuinely random off his feet, then he would legit be like the best mid in the camp. He's actually the complete package. He's quick. I eat anaerobically, but also aerobically fit as well, and he's an absolutely sick pipes as well. He's actually sexy in Hue a side. I saw him a truro place in Tasmania and I don't double take a good looking man where, especially with full kid on like you know, he knows how to dress to semi. Yeah, yeah, and he's way better than his mrs well, that's also good. I don't stare all right, said I'm a good bloke. Yeah, had a few encounters and Tazi was next to him at the truro place, and then we'll cross in the lights and looked in a car window and it was de swallow just chilling in the passenger seat. But yes, small town, so I guess everyone's down about enjoying life, but thanks for joining me. Today fellows more of a casual one, I feel, but enjoyed the redraft and all the other good shit we talked about today. Looking forward, might try and spice up the structure next week months think of some interesting discussion points, because it's fun just changing it up. Once again, thanks for helping the last few episodes keeping the show going and looking forward to doing these for the rest of the year. Hopefully back in the rhythm now and excited for the rest of the season. And Yeah, actually very came for Thursday night piach. Big, big, big day for you and the boys.
