Welcome back to the other ball potty,no, the episode of the greatest potty going around and we're back to talksome more rubbish about the a F L football league. After said ofessentially the said for bully for the Lee o football. I'm pretty sure Ialways do that, but I'm actually gang to talk some trible today. I've beengrinding Unin, the last twenty four hours and I feel like just switchingoff and letting the mouth just dribble through an hour or so so, and it's abig day big week and foot on the eve of the finals. No finals by this year willpre finals anyway, so that's exciting, but some momentum rolling in andthere's some awards this week so Thursday night, the rising style, the aFL Coaches Association and the Australian all get named in a like asemi virtual awards night and the Australian squad just got announced acouple hours before we are recording. So we thought, while we were planning todo it anyway, but we're going to be doing out a bit of a awards show todayso big chat about the Australias. We always do had some comments requestingit actually, so she add to those people also on to be chanted down a hare. Yeahthe beat the Doha also going to chat about the rising star and maybe touchon the Brown low, but before we get into that, we do have to address thefinal round. We've got the usual suspects here, so I even think I needto introduce you about Roy who were your biggest winners of the week there. Well, what he's done well and now forones begin, but I be you yeah yeah we's done for me no finals and off season. No, itdoesn't really go down from here, but anyway, so port. Obviously a big winnerI saw I came to light hours before the game. reize there's no way porterlosing this and yeah never end out, so cate win going into finals for them the lines as well. That Lincoln that,but that last quarter is absolutely unbelievable and ever say a moreintense like twenty to thirty margin game. It's. It was unbelievable when mycar to keep that Gull, like surely all the players, I don't know how all theplayers knew that, like they needed a point or something, but they celebratedas if they knew so good from the lions coming into the fins, some moremomentum, the days as well, obviously over the cats.I think not many people saw this one coming out most people we sort of backin the cats in on their home turf, but a big Maxi gown that was unbelievable,and now they claim the mine or premise the days and a giant is to get the jobdone over over Colton. It was a game that the giants is a type of gain atthe giants often lose so it was good of them to hold their nerve and and nowthey're going to go into final. Such is good to see, especially considering thefact that, given the list, they definitely deserve to be there yeah pilch what you make of the famousport victory that Roy just mentioned me: Yeah, unbelievable, come back,obviously, and but the main thing was. I was really pleased with the way theboys played. I think we were there easily the better team on the night and will provide us with a lot ofmomentum going to finals, but I don't want to say too much about it. Yeah this jinks raisins Ye. You are abig believe it in your senses. Did you put religion as Jinks, because you arean absolute die hard of the practice so yeah we weren't force you to risk it.Your Anti Jinks work last week, so we played but yeah. You said to me: Youwere pretty confident on the Friday morning and we saw why good win. Iunfortunately did tip the dog so that hurt because a lot of people backed inFort- and it was a good game that I...

...didn't catch all of it caught the backend of it. My mom actually really enjoyed it, not the biggest fan of AlFooty, but she said it was the best quarter, she's ever seen so, given thatshe's only send about probably twenty quarters in a time excluding grandfinals, but you know she said it was very clean football which you like tosee. Not many like not many Ballu and shit like that shedoesn't enjoy that stuff, so yeah port one. It was a good game of footy,though excited to see both teams this week, even though they didn't make theeight quick shouter to Saint Kilda. There are my winners. I know they sortof just put a nail in frios coffin as opposed to doanything for themselves, but I'm sure it was good to see win better than seewin than a loss row and also aside dusted their job verycomfortably, which people might have thought they were going to shit the bed.But I'm pretty sure by that time anyway, there wasn't much to play for, butstill good to. U Do it as comfortably as they did loses. For me, the biggest lase isgoing to be the dog use. Really both wins Roy talked about the port and thebrisband winds, although they were very entertaining for us, I'm sure they werenightmare stuff for the dog. US couldn't have gone any closer to a topfor finish and not actually finishing the top, for there probably were paying.I don't know doll fifty to make the top four halfway through the season andthey've crashed out in the final seconds so yeah that were definitelythe biggest losers, and now they, basically they don't get a secondchance. They're not going to have any home finals, which you know probablywouldn't have even been well, wouldn't have been a velvet anyway. So I'm notsure how be fact that is, but they were definitely the biggest losers pook anyother losers. You want to mention yeah, so the bull dogs and then Frio to Ididn't know I didn't catch that game, but to come out and lose by. Seventypoints with finals on the line was pretty disgraceful, I'm sure the saintsput on a clinic, but just would hate to be a freon net andthe dogies actually feel really bad for them. I think they have some seriousright to file an umpiring investigation into that bridge been match becausethere are some disgraceful antics going on from the boys in grain there. Butbad luck and I still think they will do a right infinals yeah, it's not not the end of the worldfor them they do have a favorable match up this week, but yeah. I agree withthat. Free O call. We talked about last week how they won the dobby and thoughtthat was a bit of a monkey off the back, but the monkeys or a crept back on onthe weekend there. I know it's like a bright future. An stuff and they'll beliking their finals chances for next season, but not the ideal way to finishoff a what has been a positive season for them are Roy any other losers. Youwant to mention that cod pretty well boys made us touchand DOL cose signs quickly and is Godselle by the spans eve. Alvas been ahuge creaker than this year hand, but I m yeah. This was just like you just can't be losing like this. I don't know it's just in a neutralvenue. You can't blame anything else, but yourself so yeah, just another poorshine from them. Hopefully they can bounce back next year. You know whenyou're down forty to four in the quarter time. You know it's just it'snot it's not right where you want to be, for the sons there yeah, I'm sure pilchis sort of deviated his his anger from Mixta an two to the umpire's debt, but because I was glad to see west coast,but I do the same thing. You should have seen me when Mixta thatmixed thing right at the end, when he maute it and then Missinipi you would have been Pesi went off net.I went off but yeah now you boys come in prettywell saints you just I don't know we just joe is so of lets hate us. We loveto play our best. Forty out yeah anyway,...

...move on Yeah. That's as for goal, costthey're going to be a tough one to predict for next year, because I'm surethere's going to be some people, like maybe Richard Fans when gocos playedreally well against top set them. Who might predict them for a surprise, toppaid appearance and then there's probably going to be others who thinkthey might be a bottom for lift so yeah. I don't know what's going on with thegoal coast, but also I've mentioned Jalan. I know they also a really goodteam in Melbourne, but that loss could we could look back on that loss and itcould be pretty pivotal for them. They've now drawn the short Straw haveto play port in Adalat, so with a what will probably be twenty five HosenBogans just ripping and tearing so yeah, it's going to be tough or Jalon,they're, obviously good enough to beat them, but not the perfect lead up tofinals for them at all, but yeah. That's the winners and losers. That'sthe end of the regular season. Final winners and lose actually willprobably do what is the lead? Actually can't really do wits loses and finals,because the loses a just the ones you got eliminated but we'll move on to ourwards. Then I am not doing my rising star. My Brown Locas, I'm not finishedmy voting process, yet I'm about three rounds away, so I'm going to save them.Mine, announce them in next week's episode, but I'll get you boys to mention yours, Roy.How about you starts with your rising star Mat. Is that a debate with thisone or not? Really just quickly before I get into myrising star, Look Luke Jackson, obviously going to be climbing theaward good on him. I think Erol Golden Trade rivers have been huge to theirclubs, but around twenty three I there on a rand cooper, Charman was robbed.I've even got his stats here. Four goals: Fifteen touches six marks, fourof them contested a few of them inside fifty, obviously seven score Volens, ahundred and three ranking points and he's going to get at least a brownlowvote. I think a judge by the A flom dad he was our third best on ground. It wasthe saint playin around, but now he lost to some blot called conner. Soyeah, that's! I don't know how how that happened. We've just unearthed Max king's tall forward part for in thenext ten years, but can't get a sniff of the rising starn on so that was justdaylight robbery, but yeah I'll give it to like Jackson but yeah. I was just absolutely filterwith that unless, unless, for some reason, he's a mid season pick and he'snot legible, I don't know because he fits the age of climates and everythingbut shocking who even is Cooper Sharman for the for the average Joe Watchingmay mid season pick was playing to for westwith. I can remember the Westwood Torans I think this year and it is nowkicking far and frail and not getting a rising stan on. So it's Nick Ray wall,migret height athletic tall forward, but not good enough for a for a nomobvious like an absolute dogging, have ter say all I'm thinking about a supercoach next year. So I'll keep that name in the little black book next to WaneMiller that I mentioned last week that two absolute must haves right. Therepills rising star mate. Are you going with the census? Pick yeah look about four weeks ago. It wasvery close between Jackson and George artist, but look Jackson turned intoSuperman for the last month of foot and Georgiadis. I think, kicked one goal infour games, so it ended up being a land slide to Jackson. Yeah Fair enough. I think I don't thinkit's really up a discussion at the moment, a Tom degoniere star, but threeants ago, so, probably probably for the best thatI didn't same line.

Poor Luki Jackson can't buy votebecause he is playing with claller and Petrak and gone and the rest of theside, but a brownlow time might be spoiling your one of your Australianpicks, but if you think they're winning the brownlows, probably a obviousAustralian pick pill will start with you mate your man, the slab head. Ithink I can say slab head for both Har McGuire and ally wines. I think it'sfitting for both he's right in the mix. Do you think he will win it? I've?Actually, I actually think Bunton Pelly will in the Brownlow Medal, but I'mbeing sensible on today's podcast and I'm going with the bond closelyfollowed by Oliver for the Brownlow Yeah Fair enough rain.Interesting, actually go ahead. Friend of the show by the name of Tylermentioned to me. The Al Brownlow Predictor and wines is like sixteenthon it, which was quite interesting, but it'sactually very similar to what the mcaley brownlow predictor has a mat. So maybe that's a bit auto there, but interesting stiff holy, but I know theStroud brownlow predictor has in at number one, which is the best metricgoing round. Apparently really have you got your our men? Actually I can't say out man.I say that, like puces ban ally wanes up at number one. I still hate him. Soit's not my man. Now I've sound another slip head though Oh yeah just a gun an I an idea. He's got theSquirean, no yeah. Well, no straight in his mate. I don't know he's got madesit of all done this thing every year. You know they can pile their three toones and everyone's three, two ones and average it out and Blah Blah. Basically,they won. They win at a lot of money every year from doing it, so they have wines in it one as of amonth ago, and since then I like one just got more votes than blont anyway,but yeah. I don't know, every single Brani predicted that happens every yearis always wrong, so I don't like to really follow them because it is reallyunpredictable. You know there are blocks. Who was, Ithink I was Marley William, is like got a vote or something and got seventouches. I think in like the Easter Monday game years ago, but yeah it's it's an unpredictablewall which makes it great at the moment. I honestly don't knowlike I've got wines bond steel up there clary as well, like it's fantastic,that we don't know because it makes it such a good viewing this year and such a great night to deposit a Kainto the sports bit account. But now I should be a ripper Nin and rip Ecot, soat the moment yeah, probably Bont, but insane that he has had a quiet lastmonth so be interesting to see whether it's overtaken you know or whetherthese guys, like Mundy and parish, who both have a lot of three vote games. Ican pile in often and can get a few capes where they can give it a run aswell, but yeah. I think, yeah. I think the top five, where I'm going toconsisted like Bon wine, steel, clarion now soon else, but yeah and YeahPatrika, so yeah, I'm just God at he took, isn't illegible but probablydidn't win enough games, but yeah should be ripe. Count Yeah, there'sactually someone that we have really mentioned yet who's right in the mixfor mine, it's Darcy parishes. I think the last round I just tallied up beforewe started this. I think bont just overtook parish again, but for me theirneck and neck. I think he falls away a little bit in the last three roundswhere I think Bob might pick up a couple more but yeah. For me, it's thebond at the road that has a adventoor I'll mention it in next week's episode,who wins my Brownlow Alaula time. However, this is arguably the pottiesflagship show the Australian selections with this. It would be our fourth onenow including the mid years, and they always go down a treat. I'm actuallygoing to do my last this time. I always...

...do the first because mine's usually bitof a gag, but I thought I'd change it up this time, because I was thinkingabout it. When I make the clipse of the show, don't really want some random flfan just clicking on and seeing me pick will snelling in the forward pocketmight would like to. You know, expose them to some people with actual goodopinions, so I will start with Pilch who is in your all, Australian team,mate great question man and it is as follows: If we start withthe full back line, I have got Tom Stewart in one of the back pockets fairly consensus pick that Stephen mayfall back and then for the other back pocket. This one was an absolute tossup between two interceptors earlier and live honestly, cannot split them, butI've gone for a liar. Just think. He's a little bit more of a plea presence onthe field, more of an athletic baste and clearlyone of the best interceptors and lockdown defenders in the game. Thisseason, half back line rich and Dale on the outsides, give a betterrunning, carry and then waitering at sent. Half back. I don't think HarrisAndrews was quite stiff not to get a nomination but fair play, send a line, I'm just going to say I'm normally ahuge advocate for you know putting wingers on the outside, not puttinglike you know in past years, dust in Martin and theFord pocket, but there's just way too many good midfielders in this is crop.So I've had to been my own rules a little bit so I've gone for steel, Bonton, Pelly mccray across themiddle one of them. Two of them will have to cop the wing but they're justtoo good, not to get a spot on the field. Jack Steeles had number level seasonand for him to miss out two years in a row would be disgraceful in the Rock Gaun.I think his last game got him over the line and the fact that they came first,I think they'll give it to him him him Darcy and that now we are pretty muchall this good as each other, but the latter position should get him acrossthe line and then I have got. I hang on. I've made a mistake. Her One sec, I've got wines and Oliver as a next twomidfielders. I should not really rate the wines pick, but considering hisfavorite for the Bono. I should put him in and I think he will get picked therejust because of all the outside. A noise can't see missing out for linehalf forward. PETRAK got one mid fielder in there think he also deserved a spot beingunreal ego McKay, probably the worst common medalist since seventeen fortythree, when they were playing with a Ram ballor whatever it was Jack, Jack, stry, now Jake strenger onthe other half forward flank full forward got one player here that didn'tmake the squad and that's Charlie, Dixon, probably the most biased pick of alltime, but I just think he's an absolute presence has four men on him and alltimes and still lays the league every year and contested marks. Forty sevengoals gets like five hidous to advantage a game inside for fifty setsup goals, just versatile key forward and then Hawkins, in my opinion, theBest Cape for this season and then toby grain in the other Ford pocket and thento round out the interchange. I've just got four midfield, as so I've gone withparish. Actually, I have put my luggage in there just to get one outside sortof play out, so I got parish. Mclagan took Millerand cale mills Milsey. That's a that's, a good one,...

...roy interested to hear whether you havevery similar tom to pillor, not all right, so I don't really have any starts andnumbers or anything like that. I'm just going to say how I like him so starting.I also bread it out the way. That's on, like the A fl. You know how it goesrock and then the two follow us down at the very end I'll. Do it that way so, but the back pocket, Tommy Stewart,pretty standard selection that I think you'll get another jacket on him. There Stephen May at full back and then leavea back pocket. I'm also tossing up between lever and a liar, but thatcombination of main lever this year is just been impenetrable for the daysthey've considered very few goals and yeah, obviously they've they finishedon top got the minor prevorst and can't leave them out in the half back line. I've got two. Mythree guys guys have weren't select in the squad. They're, the only two guysweren't slept in the squalid got in here, so one half back who is in asquad Daniel Rich? I just don't understand that man's thatman's boot, how he can keep like twenty meters further and everyone else in thecamp, except for the the cannon. It's unbelievable sent a half back of actually at Harris.Andrews still don't know how he was snubbed like man's just an absolute beast. You knowhe plays lock down and into sets, but it's just so consistent as well at itand he's just an absolute freak and then on the other, half back flank.I've got. I don't know how this guy missed out as well Aaron Hole. Iabsolutely love the man, everyone says you know wraps up the staps and allthat Blah Blah he's a stat whatever. But look that's as probably the case ofmost half backs, I think hall is one of the best is not the best kiks in theCOMP. If you want to go watch him play he's, I don't know how he does it, butjust all these kids are perfectly waited beautifully, lays out somebeautiful darts and the one thing I like about a d. no, not then he doescompared to most of the half back. Is it just about all this running isforward? You know most of his kicks. Aren't you know to the like tippingaround back to the side like he gets his start as he's running forward andattacking so hence wise disposal. Efficiency might be a bit low, but Istill think is probably one of the best kicks in the Com and he's got awesomepace and he uses as well. So yeah. Look in my opinion is one of thebest, if not the best half backs in the game. At the moment, this boy is isjust exquisite if, as play for a top, eighteen could be a lot more wellrecognized going to the center now of Yeah Look ofalso sort of bent the rules here, but you know I got to do what you got to doso I got semi Walsham, one wing, Jack mccray on the other wing and JackSteele in the center. I'm not I'm, not copping. This man missing out in thefield for the second unios going on. If they, if still it, does another scenerobbery this week, I'm going to absolutely loseit, but anyway, so those three can be in there absolutely awesome selections.Half forward line Patrica would have loved to be putting the cartnext to him. So I could feel a bit better about myself, but unfortunatelyyeah that's got a thing in the past and the twenty four an draft Tommy Hawkinssent a half forward. Obviously does a lot more than just kick goals of thecats he's a huge player for them Daneos. Well, I've got the other half wordflank, just trying to get as many sort of genuine forward options and here ispossible without playing too much midtime, but yeah he's been awesome for them allare the most painful play e, not having super coaches year for pockets. Toby grain wofana absolutebased, could literally change a game just what just him could just change a game,and hopefully they'll be a case this weekend, because we awesome to see howfar the giants can go. JAKIE string or other forward pocket yeah he's the packages delivered thisyear, and hopefully you can get them over the line. This weekend, the Autemto see bombers upset and Harribee full...

...for yeah, probably a great, probablythe worst Coleman that we've seen in a while. But I is a colman on the lessit's gonna, be a awsome crea, Maxi Gon in the rock conquer past. This man, like this year,was a lot tougher that new and Dart you were would definitely were thought. Butfor me it was just gone to pit to them. I think just work around the grounds,unbelievable and then Bonton Pellian wines are going to be accompanying JackSteele and that center around Gorn. So that's a pretty formidable formidable starting for re in there onthe bench clan Oliver absolutely based. I can't remember if you had on a Pilch,I don't know if he snubbed it or not, but yeah. I did that in Idem, okay cool! Ididn't remember he saying that Rory Lad as well. Second spot on the bench:Absolute Annibal, Tyler, Colson Superman. Definitely the right name forMr Crom took millias. Well, fill on the bench- and I was tossing up in thislast one by went with Darcy parish, so yeah that bench is sort of chock isfull of midfield is, but you know, like I said, there's just way to me. MinFelis pick this yeah, I mean Jacob Hope come on, but yeah. Oh, that's that's going to be theteam I've got with you know. Obviously, a lot of players that were Steve gotthree decks on NIG NA lions, alier, obviously Saloman Dale, Jacob weddingand also buddy, but like yeah, I don't know I just I halkins of a car just did enough, butthat's that's the time we re al with yeah. In my opinion and cooperson stiffas Wen. My opinion macar was about the sixthbest K for this season. But saying is you want to come and you have to puthim in you just can't leave that comment for the Austra, just yeah yeahstiff rights diff, because I have but a thanks. Kall right, yeah same orders,pilch, so my full back line. I actually haven't heard anyone talk about thisblial year, but he's somehow on my top ten in the voting, and it's actuallyshouting her every single week for the West Coast to you pretty much as themost effective kicks the most rebounds. All those sort of starts that a halfback flankers should dominate and he is one of the most consistent at it. Alsogreater intercepting, I know, he's carves and hammes are native, not thestrong stuff at the moment, but he has gotten in there. Thout a bat is a lie.Well, it's like the big Emma, even though their sponsor bout, Hungry Jacks.It is not looking good there Bru it's! He just seems to set it off. To behonest, he with the GRADISCA Shannon she had a. If he's watching shout hisfamily but shock in head, but doesn't mean he can't make the Australian side full back. I've got Tommy Stewart can'tremember what game it was, but might have been the one where Gary Roankicked this the Sealer after the sin. But there was a game around that timeof year and it was full like prime brancing. It and yeah I just lovedTommy Stet love his story, love how he just sort of came from bar and headsfooty and came through the VfL sit and all that good stuff and then my otherback pocket. I've got Jordan Ridley, then in the half back line he was yeah. I heard he missed down this here.I actually have no idea who's in the squad so, but I did see Panat messagethat one in half back flank I've got Daniel Ridge. I actually think thisyear he's finally getting the plaudit he deserves. I think he's had a veryunderrated past five or six years yeah, as Rae said, you can just keepthe shit out of a ball, which is a underrated skill and for y someone whocan kick it sixty years opposed to, I pretty pretty large competitiveadvantage, sent a half back. I actually couldn't split these two mayor mainlever, exact same amount of votes for me polling, the exact same amount ofgames, but I just went steven may not...

...sure why his name was on top in theorder. So it went with him. So Excel has decided, leave his fate. Sadly,then I've got Luke Rin on the other one. Those who watch the podcast last yearwould know that my algorithm absolutely frostly Ryan, so he is in there. As a like, I guess, a third tall defenderbit more Achil than most all defenders going around human redly can sort ofshare the smaller forwards than in the center. I've actually gone reallystrict this year on the wingers and the forwards. I've done some center bounceattendants research and made sure they like a ten less than fifty percent tobe in these positions. So one of my wings is Jack Wicoco. I think he was inmy mid or media Australian side had to confirm with Roy that he actually is awing up, but Roga the green light so happy to stick him in there, the otherwing I've got humor clugged. For me, I mentioned it a few months ago, but ifthere's a player, I would like to have an the ball. Sixty out forwards,leading all over the place had be him because I can assure you he'll hit oneof the fords on the chest. Then I've got liver in the middle of the center.I know that's a very road pick, but he was dominating the first half of theyear and then as being piled to talk n out before he came on her teams sort ofstarted, realizing that he was so pivotal to the dog success and hestarted getting a lot more attention and has subsequently seen his and theteams form windle. Then, in the Rock I've snabbedMaxy Goin I've Gone Nick Dat Lewis he's just been out, Shawn Darcy for me, sothe reckon from the West or tearing it up at the moment, then my robes havegot the bond and parish my two brown low candidates, then, in the four line,this one's road, but he actually missed more games, miss less games than Ithought but still doesn't deserve. It didn't really play that. Well, when youplay, but actually a dusty in my Hufford flank, then you picked up likefourteen votes, so you must have done it right. So a forward look. I don'treally want to pay any attention to this bloke after what he did the otherweek. Genuine piece of Shit but can't deny his first six to eight weeks ofthe season was arguably the most dominant sixty eight week period. Wesaw all season, and that is tail. Walker, absolutely tore it up for thecrows. Then my other half word flank. Guy He's not really a pure forward. Hesort of depends wake on week. He plays wing, heplays half back flying. He does also play half forward. Flank he's kickedfour and three goals auto in different games. Yea. It is John Dawson I'll,absolutely love. The man got a few Arcano get a few votes in theBrown lad this year. There are a couple games that you actually tore up andthen the full for line got, in my opinion, a top five player in thecompetition toby green talked about how much I love him in the past. Be isgoing to be there then my fur forwards, the Tomahawk one of the most consistentTalford in the COLP nowadays and then the other Ford pocket was going to goto tall forwards. Just went not most teams have three, so the big challengeics also got into my tay. Ah I love is vote, get her in the wholeside by a significant margin but yeah my aorist hates to talk forward. So Ihad to dig deat for that one, but you stuck in with eight votes, is about tenin the port being eve currently for me, but that's saying something or than theinterchange of about jackstay whole Christoper. Ko, who can you know, spendsome time forward for me as well, and then I thought I'd pick a defensiveminded player, so I pick Jack's evil, even though I don't know if he actuallycan defend. Honorable Mansions got to go to Dane Zoco. I think he's someonewho's been pretty overlooked this year. I think a lot of the brisen playersdon't get as much attention as maybe they should, but moving in the last twoyears he saw the tri transition from a...

...guy who would do stints in the guts butplay forward to a genuine midfielder and he's. I think he had his best yearsYe. I reckon now then took obviously killed or this year just missed out.For me, Sean Darse just missed out roism Aaron Hall. She had out to brawlbent for he use a shit, kick a disgraceful opinion. Broad best kickout yeah. I love him as well, but he just missed out for me and then YeahJake Leva. As I mentioned between me and Leva, it was a a coin flip. Youcould say why aren't they both in there, but the armor needs Le Cry to be lAustralian side. So you know I've got to just listen to the Arboit, but yeah.That's my team, some weird selections in there. I actually have no idea howmany of them made the scored I'd be impressed if it's over fifty percent,but that is my Australian. That is it quite a few consensus picks the worn'ttoo. Many, though, that we all picked the obvious candidates, think Stewarton all our teams, then the bond, I think, Patrakali and still all made ourteams. I think the rock is going to be reallyinteresting. I agree with you guys and it's going to be gone, but I'm notnecessarily sure if he deserves it so definitely excited for Thursday goingto be interesting to see how our teams stuck up against the experts, whilethey say they're experts, but, as Rawa said, they do give Molly Williams voteson the Brownlow, so I m not sure how well they know the game, but anyway,just a quick supercoach chat before we preview the exciting upcoming finalweek, one roy you're, really the only one of interested, sadly to name pilch how your ranking actually was prettygood at it read in the group to this morning. So what did you finish man?How did you go this weekend? I mean compared to who you came liketwo hundred. It wasn't that good, but I fish yeah, I so I'm just trying to load it up. Nowable to win one one of the leagues which is Handy got Igot to win in my cricket, Sharks League, so I was good at death rones. One ofthe guys is won at like stray for the last two or three years, but I finishedone eight three one so inside the top two k. So I guessthat's something, but it could have been a lot better, but it was good tosee you not. I coach, Mama Yeah when atthis year, good on her, because I think she was about to quit before the seasonstarted. So it's always good to see that fornaci a go out to you know aparent because obviously got the kids look after and all that. So I'm reallygood to see that happened, but yeah not a bad weekend. Captain teachnothing about Chelse to say, rather than can't wait to not have shy boltnext year, but yeah pray m BP, the last week ofthe season was jake. The one hundred and fifty four got my win over the line,so that was unbelievable from him as a unique, so yeah. How much? I says besaid: Yeah, then men pitch the season's beenoverfor a while. I did not have a grey weekend, but had two donuts so wasn'texpecting to do well lost the windspin playoff, so came last in a League of ten which itisn't very good, but we move on not sure what I take away from this year.Had some shit injury like realistically, I should just be moresafe with my picks next year, but not sure if I will, because it's kind of fun, just pickingShit, people pilch and you take ways from the mate also had some pretty shit. Injury luck,but probably just don't burn your trades by around nineand don't trade out look Parker at the by, because if you do he'll go on toaverage a hundred and forty for the rest of the year, yeah definitely yeah. The other. Takeway is probably invest a bit more time into my rookieselection and I think I to burn three trades. The start of year, justcorrecting that before price rises,...

...which probably came back to buy me alittle bit, because that could have been helpful. Replacing some injuredplayers and probably need to stop picking like tall forwards and shitlike that, because they just never do well, even though I'm not having Kazikthat one week where he bloody tuned up her hurt like hell but yeah. I likethat's just someone who was never going to do well on super coach. So probablyit just going to be a bit smarter with Shit like that, but yeah. Now it's agood game good year, looking forward to pl and NFL fantasy, which I much preferto super coach with the greatest respect, might be just a soul loserhere. As someone who finished outside the top fifty but yeah, ok forward tothose two seasons a bit more and then we will dress over coach next March,but that moves us into our first finals preview, which I'm really excited aboutfour games to an out a lad to antas. Never thought I'd say that heading intoa final series must say: I'm absolutely shouted tohear that the buy is going to be between the Prelim and the final. I know it might be due to the fact thatthey still don't even know where it's going to be and stuff like that andthey need time to prepare, but I think it's going to be a serious buzz kill,but anyway at least we don't have to buy now shortterm satisfaction and lockdown weekend with no footy been that fun,while we're still locked down here in Melbourne of that first game of theweekend: Pitches Mighty Port, Adelaide power up against the beloved along cats on this podcast atthe Adelade port of the favorites, the lines four and a half, we start wrotethe unbiased opinion on the panel. Who are you backing here? The line just quickly yeah? I am. I wasdisappointed first to hear an ounce her that boy happening beforethe grave. There will obviously be er buds, kill effect. However, it doesgive the opportunity for anyone can cast or still play and also we shouldhave the brown low between that period of time. So I guess is something, butthat e end of the day will yeah. There will be a bit of that weird sort of gap.That is what it is. If there's any chance of US getting out of lock down,it will be in that period rather than you know this way coming up, so it'sbetter to have as many as much food as we can in the short term. But basicallyI know it's tough, this one I've myphilosophy going in is it the cats. I think we're going to win the wholething, because I think in a year where there's so much uncertainty, it mightbe. The tainments got the most experienced to come out on top. So forthat reason I might go to cats, I don't know it wasn't the worst resultI'm actually losing, because I think playing breeze bins, going to be prettyscary and I in not fit pilled gunning port still, obviously, a very vinerableteam just because of their record this year, against top eight teams, their win over they win over. The dogsis obviously very sort of emphatic, but it'll be interesting to see how they play this weekend. They win then creditto him because I definitely deserve it, but at the moment I'm probably justgoing to go the cats yeah, I'm going to tip the cats as well.Just because I took the dogs last week in Port One, so gonna try and stick tothat method, but pilch. I know you're walking on thin ice right now with yourjinks and anti jinks beliefs. But if you care to indulge us in how youthink this game would go, what do you think the result will be any indicationwin twice if you think tice you can for Italy in anything? What do you thinkabout this gay name? Firstly, yeah that the last twentyseconds of that to long Melbourne game. You would honestly think they tanked it.It was that bizarre, but in terms of this game, I'll betipping Galong by...

...going up quite as much as the O, sevengrand final but life in that sort of Tamata long in a tight one. Long in a time one yea, we are cracraftcontest yeah. I Wan. I want interrogate further because I don't know if that'syou contest of the year. Actually I'm predicting yeah, I have to say a lot ofgames at the Adelaide over, seem to be good games so especially prime timefinals. I'm very excited for it that moves us into the first hazy game.Sadly, for Redos it's in Lanceston, so shout out, I don't know if he could getthere anyway, because he had soccer but pretty relevant for those listening.She got out to rate. It is the Sydney Darby, though, what they call thebattle of the bridge. Think sitting in the favorites going into it. The linesat the half Jesus actually have no idea her row.What do you reckon? I don't need all these games. I don'tknow yeah, I'm stuck, but which is great, but you know everyone's saying:Toper Green, going to be a huge factor in a winner for them. Yeah, I think thefive pound Didius is full lines can be huge, but siny have buddy so yeah. Itcould come down because I think cal mills is probably going to miss thisgame or UN short, the Mon. But you might- and I think Kennedy is going tobe coming off an injury so where the Gedos can take advanges atthe middle we nesting to see, but I might just back the favor in the swansjust kiss other than that. I really don't know who's gonna win this one yeah pit yeah, I'm very cane, for theseremaining three games not can at all for the first game, probably wouldrather die and watch it, but so I'll be dawning three bottles ofwine, but this is actually the easiest game to tip. For me, I think the son ismiles better team than the giants last time the giants played in Tazi. Ibelieve they drew with North Melbourne and just played like absolute shot. SoI don't think they like the actually. I don't know if it was thesame ground, but I don't like it down in Tazi. So if this son's rock up, Ithink they take this by six goals, so them at the line yeah fair enough Eh, it's just tough one I'll be goingfor the giant. Actually I don't care I like both of them. I'll probably go infor the giants but yeah. If, if Sydney be goal Cos by twenty points, I think Iwould tip the giants, but just the way the Sineh ones disposed of somewhattalented side in the suns. So emphatically I think I'm going to haveto tip them. I don't know if I want to but yeah,hopefully body doesn't kick clock ten. Actually I don't know that's kind ofcringe for me, but I I could say in case in twenty isDistuona Sammy Tatle Mat at wet my r twenty two UN, twenty two full back.Actually I don't even know if it was in your team but sad day, night, primetime, actually, I'm summing it Saddays. I think the dog is game Sunday, but I'mguessing there. It is you, okay, Beautiful Melbourne, Brisbane to mysurprise, to the Adelaide Oval had no idea before writing this segment upMelbourne head into it, favorites lines, six and a half pitch. Are you backingyour beloved Melbourne or your beloved Brisben May Yeah Looks Enough with the belovedcalls mate, but those I like both these teams inAdelaide, but I'm just gonna have to go in album at the line as well. Yeah you're, veryough, very intersection mate at the moment.What's going on there, that's an important factor, yeah, it'strue. I've never heard you talk about it now, you're frost on it, but itactually is an interesting point. I never really factored in, but likegrand sizes, legit matter but...

Roly, who you backin in here at the moment, Melbourne's, probablyonly team, I would have that would beat the lines in this final series.I'm going to back Melbourne, I need to meet awesome game but yeah. Ithink e mail words. Defense will be too goodfor Brigman attack and I think no will be able to get enough goals to win thisone yeah, I'm with you boys, clean sweetback in the Melbourne. If I was at the Galatoire, probably go Bruce Ben, butany other ground in Australia I'll be taken the day. I still think that thelines are home ground bullies as well, not sure not sure if I'm a believer in them awayfrom him any any ground to be honest, yeah, I actually don't hate that for embut Sunday, first Sunday, final in a while, I m not sure when the last onewas, but I read that somewhere first one in a Whilei, maybe since, like thepre finals by or something read that the other day do us playing the bombersin lawn syston once again, how can lances an be hosting to final lot, Owot come to Juggie's line is ten and a half nay. I hope these games are all closebecause they sit seem like they're all going to be tight. Oh, are you back andthen the dog used to get the job done, I'm backing in the bombings with thisone. I think I think this is one upset or anwhat happen. I'm yeah I'm predicted to dogs to goout straight away. I could he fly power of acidence forward lines going to betoo much. You know Peter Wright, cooking, a bag. You go JK, stringer tipet all these bloke stick. Can they can do a lot so yeah? I think without Bruce. I knowhe's obviously like you know not the best. Well, obviously he's at a verygood Epris, but, like you know, he's not like a actually no so tip ers, notplaying. I don't w said that, but obviously bruce is not like a you know,a superstar of the competition, but thingis really important to a line up. It takes a lot of ease off not onshoulders. So one of the moist cops at seconds tall, but with Atam we saw ithappen on the weekend. They, like a part in the first few minutes of thegame they like in ability to score so yeah, I'm going to be back in the bonushere. I can. I get to be too good, yeah fair enough for or the Doge's played in lawn systemlike two weeks ago against Hawthorn, but and did not go well. So that'sgoing to be interesting, I'm actually going to back the dogies head to headasside at the line. I think a line in the hospite generous, but hell Chel,you back in in here yeah this for me, aside from the firstgame, is very hard to tip, but I can see an outcome where, like BontonPelly and all that just come out with an absolute vendetta and they just theyhit their their earlier earlier season form andalso we all know what Senan I like in finals. You know they still finish theseason like eleven and eleven or whatever so they're, not they're. Not Iwouldn't be calling them a good team, so I could say the dogs also winning byeighty points and for that reason I'll be taking the dogs yeah fair enough. Itwould be cool to see Sam win, but at the same time they're probably I cannecesarily say the me not sure if I can handle the absoluteshit talk that will cop from our mate, so yeah kind of hope. The dogs get upgreat respect to paint our tails and nods, but yeah- and I that's that's it for another week of thehonorable potty, the great mid, the Great Australian special as eventuallyat the start, the flagship show of the potty an talk dribble around it prettymuch excited for all four games. Hopefully I'm going to actually watchsome this weekend because I had successfully run an a felt podcast allseason and have hardly watched any flee,...

...but, as I'm sure you are all were butno Australian team, but yeah hoping it's all good go port. I guess don'thave to say, go saints this week unless we're talking about on the sesh orsomething but may had is in crat he'll be on thesearch. They're, probably still gone from the other night for the othernight. But but I don't know a good om like I don't know where they were butlike if these teams were in bubbles like elsewhere like I just would not becoming back to Melbourne, but anyway yeah. I don't know where they're beingbut pilch hopeful get up mate. I don't want to say anything further. I don'twant to dink it bia thanks for joining me. He Gan boys thanks back.
