Welcome back to the on the BAARDPotty, not the episode of the Greatest Party going round, and we're backto talk some more rubbish about the AFL football league. Just said of essentiallyjust said football league, Football League, feel football by I'm pretty sure Ialways do that, but I'm actually came to talk some dribble today. I'vebeen grinding, you need, the last twenty four hours and I feel likejust switching off and letting the mouth just dribble through a hour or so.So and it's a big day, big week, and footy on the eveof the finals. No finals by this year, well pre finals anyway.So that's exciting. But some momentum rolling in and there's some awards this week. So Thursday night the rising style, the AFL Coaches Association and the Australianall get named in a like a semi virtual awards night, and the Australiansquad just got announced a couple of hours before we are recording. So wethought what we were planning to do anyway. But we're going to be doing oura bit of an awards show today. So big chat about the Australian,as we always do. Had some comments requesting it actually, so shoutout to those people. Also going to be chat about a half. Yeah, the beat, the the hards. Also going to chat about the risingstar and it may be touched on the brownlow. But before you get intothat, we do have to address the final round. We've got the usualsuspects here, so I don't think I need to introduce you. But Rowley, who were your biggest winners of the week? Man, well, foot, he's done well and now finals begin. But for you? Yeah, yeah, he's done. For me, but finals and offseason. Know itdoesn't really go down from here. But anyway, so port obviously a bigwinner. I saw. I came to light hours before the game. Realizesno way porter losing this and yeah, never in doubt. So Kate wingoing into finals for them. The lines as well, that Lincoln. Thatbut that last quarter is absolutely unbelievable and info seen them more intense, liketwenty to thirty margin game. It's it was Unbelievableh McCarthy keep that goal,like surely all the players, I don't know how, all the place,knew that, like they needed a point of something, but they celebrated isas if they knew. So good from the lines coming into the finals,of some more momentum the the day's as well, obviously, over the cats. I think not many people saw this one coming. I think most peoplewere sort of back in the cats in on their home turf, but bigMaxi gone. That was unbelievable, and now they claimed the minor premiership thedays and the giants has to get the job done. Over over Carlton.It was a game that the giants' Is a type of game that the giantsoften lose, so it was good them to hold their nerve and and nowthey're going to go into finals, which is good to see, especially consideringthe fact that, given the list, they definitely deserve to be that.Yeah, pillage, what do you make of the famous port victory that Rowejust mentioned? Me? Yeah, unbelievable come back, obviously, and butthe main thing was I was really pleased with the way the boys played.I think we were the easily the better team on the night and will provideus with a lot of momentum going to finals. But I don't want tosay too much about it. Yeah, Yus jinks reasons. Yeah, youare a big believe it in your senses did you put religion as jinks becauseyou are an absolute die heart of the practice. So yeah, we weren'tforce you to risk it. Your Auntie Jinks work last week. So alittle played. But yeah, you said to me you're pretty confident on theFriday morning and we saw why. Goodwin. I unfortunately did tip the Doggies,so hurt because a lot of people backed in court and it was agood game that I didn't catch all that.

Caught the back end of it.My mum actually really enjoyed it. Not the biggest fan of AFL footy, but she said it was the best quarter she's ever seen, so giventhat she's only seen about probably twenty quarters in her time, excluding grand finals. But you know, she said it was very clean football, which heliked to see. Not many like not many bull ups and Shit like that. She doesn't enjoy that stuff. So Yeah, port one, it wasgood game of Footy, though. Excited to see both teams this week,even though they didn't make the eight. Quick shout at to St Kilda.They are in my winners. I know they sort of just put a nailin Freyer's coffin as opposed to do anything for themselves, but I'm sure itwas good to see a win. Better to see win than a loss.Roley and also essendon dusted their job very comfortably, which people might have thoughtthey were going to shit the bed, but I'm pretty sure by that timeanyway there wasn't much to play for, but it's still good to do itas comfortably as they did. Losers, for me, the biggest loses gotto be the dogs. Really both wins. Roy talked about the port and theBrisbane wins. Although they were very entertaining for us, I'm sure theywere nightmare of stuff for the doggies. Couldn't have gone any closer to atop for finish and not actually finish in the top four. They're probably we'repaying I don't know, a doll fifty. Two make the top four halfway throughthe season and they've crashed down in the final seconds. So yeah,they were definitely the biggest losers and now they're basically they don't get a secondchance. They're not going to have any home finals, which you probably wouldhave even been. Well, wouldn't have been in Belvet Anyway, so I'mnot sure how big a fact that is, but they would definitely the biggest losers. PILCH. Any other losers you want to mention? Yeah, sothe bulldogs and then Freeo to I didn't actually I didn't catch that game,but to come out and lose by seventy points with finals on the line onewas pretty disgraceful. I'm sure the saints put on a clinic but just wouldhate to be a free o fan there and the doggies are actually feel reallybad for them. I think they have some serious right to file an umpoweringinvestigation into that Brisbane match because there are some disgraceful antics going on from theboys in grain there. But bad luck and I still think they'll do rightin finals. Yeah, it's not, not the end of the world forthem. They do have a favorable matchup this week. But yeah, Iagree that free o call. We talked about last week how they won theDerby and thought that was a bit of a monkey off the back, butthe monkey thought of crept back on on the weekend. They're I know it'slike a bright future and stuff and they'll be luck in their finals chances fornext season, but not the ideal way to finish off a what has beena positive season for them. rolly. Any other losers? You want tomention the CODA? Pretty well, boys, maybe just touch and gold crest soundsquickly. Just got absolutely flogged by the SWAN's. Have obviously been ahuge critic of them this year hand, but I'm yeah, this was justlike you just can't be losing like this. I don't know, it's just ina neutral venue. You can't blame anything else but yourself. So,yeah, just another poor showing from them. Hopefully they can bounce back next year. You know, when you're down forty two, four and the quartertime, you know it's just it's not. It's not right where you want tobe for the sun's there. Yeah, yeah, I'm sure coach is sortof deviated. He he's anger from mixtake, kicking two to the umpiresthere, but because I was glad to see west coast. But he shouldhave seen me. You should have seen me when mixed a that mixed athing right at the end when he marked it and then miss the in tightgoal. Ye would have been teasing. I went off that I went off. But yeah, no, you boys coming pretty well, saymes, youjust I don't know. We just jokers. Sort of. I just hate us. We love to play our best footy one but yeah, anyway,move on. Yeah, bathosts from Gold...

Coast are they're going to be atough one to predict for next year because I'm sure there's going to be somepeople like maybe Richard Fans, when Gold Coast played really well against top setthem, who might predict them for a surprise top aid appearance. And thenthere's probably going to be others who think they might be a bottom forced ifso, yeah, I don't know what's going on at the Gold Coast.But also I'll mention just long. I know they also really, really goodteam in Melbourne, but that loss could we could look back on that lossand it could be pretty pivotal for them. They're now drawn the short Straw.have to play port in Adelaide, so with a what will probably betwenty Fivezero bogans just ripping and tearing. So yeah, it's going to betougher jelong. They're obviously good enough to beat them, but not the perfectlead up to finals for them at all. But yeah, that's the winners andloses. That's the end of the regular season. Final winners and theactually will probably do what isn't it. Actually can't really do what isn't losesthe finals because the loss just the ones you got eliminated. But we'll moveon to our awards then. I am not doing my rising star, myBrownlow, because I'm not finished my voting process yet. I'm about three roundsaway, so I'm going to save them mine announce them in next week's episode. But I'll get you boys to mention yours. Rowy, how about yourstart us with your rising star mate. Is there debate with this one ornot? Really, just quickly before I get into my rising style of LukeJackson obviously going to be climbing the award got on him, I think.Errol golden traders have been huge for their clubs, but round twenty three,if they're on, lay around. Cooper charm and was robbed. I've evengot his stats here. Four goals, fifteen touches, six marks, fourof them contested, few of them inside fifty, obviously. Seven score involvensa hundred three ranking points and he's going to get it for at least aBrownlow vote, I think. A judge by the aflcom dot you, hewas our third best on ground it was a saints player around, but no, he lost to some bloke called Connor. So yeah, that's I don't knowhow how it's happened. We've just unearthed Max King's toll forward part forthe next ten years but can't get a sniff at the rising start. Nom. So that was just daylight robbery. But yeah, I'll give it toLe Jackson. But yeah, I was just absolutely shill fi that. UNLESS, unless for some reason he's a midseason peak it he's not eligible. Idon't know, because he fits the age requirements and everything. But shocking.Who Even is Cooper Shalman? For the for the average Joe watching me,midseason peak was playing too is for West webs. I kind of remember thatWestwoodville, Torrens, I think this year, and he's now kicking for and FreeHour and not getting a rising stand on. So Nick rewalt. Nickrewalt height, athletic toll forward, but not good enough for a for anormous sounds like an absolute dogging after say. Oh, I'm thinking about a supercoach next year's I'll keep that name in the little black book next toWayne Miller that I mentioned last week. The too absolute mustubs right there,pilch. Rising star. Mate, how are you going with the census pick? Yeah, look about four weeks ago it was very close between Jackson andGeorgiatis, but Luke Jackson turned into Superman for the last month of footy andGeorgiadis, I think, kicked one goal in four games. So it endedup being a landslide to Jackson. Yeah, fair enough, I think. Idon't think it's really up for discussion at the moment. Tom De Kooning'swinning my rising star, but three rounds to go, so probably probably forthe best that I didn't say mine.

Paul. Lucky Jackson can't buy avote because he is playing with clover and the truarker and Gornie and the restof the side. But right, Brownlow, time might be spoiling. You're oneof your Australian picks, but if you think they're winning, the Brownlow'sprobably a obvious Australian pick. Peelch, will start with you, mate.Your man, the slabhead. I think I can say slaphead for both HarryMcGuire and Ali wines. I think it's fitting for both. He's right inthe mix. Do you think he will win it. I've actually I actuallythink bump and Pelli will win the brownlow metal. I'm being sensible on today'spodcast and I'm going with the bond, closely followed by Oliver for the Brownlow. Yeah, fair enough, real I think interesting. Actually, go ahead. Friend of the show. Bottom name of til up mentioned to me theAFL brownlow predictor and wines is like sixteen on it, which was quite interesting. But it's actually very similar to what the mccaulcodile brownlow predictor hasn't that.So maybe there's a bit of actually there. But interesting. Stiff Olie, butI know the Stroudie brownlow predictor has him at number one, which isthe best metric going around apparently. Roley, have you got your our man?Actually, I can't say our man. I hate that. I'd like culturesvan all the ones up at number one. I still hate him.So it's not my man. I know I've found another slidehead, though.Oh yeah, it's just a gun an. I don't and I doubt he's gotthe square ashead of the saying. Now. Yeah, well, NiceStraud in, his mate, or I know he's got mat set. Ofall done this thing every year. You know, they can pile they're threetwo ones and everyone's three two ones and average it out and blah, blah. Basically they won. They win it a lot of money every year fromdoing it. So they have wines in it one as of a month ago, and since then I think wine has got more boats than bond anyway.But yeah, I don't know. Every single brando predicted. That happens everyyear. Is Always Wrong. So I don't like to really follow them becauseit is really unpredictable. You know, there are blokes who was I thinkwas Molly Williams, like got a vote or sewing and got seven touches.I thinking like the eastern Monday game years ago. But yeah, it's it'san unpredictable war, which makes it great. At the moment, I honestly don'tknow. Like 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 goodviewing this year and such a great night to deposit a k into the sportsbut account. But now I should be a ripper nine and ripper count.So at the moment, yeah, probably bomb. But in saying that,he has had a quiet last month. So I'm interesting to see whether it'sovertake and you know, or whether these guys like Monday and parish, whoboats have a lot of three vote games, compile enough and then can get afew cheap he's where they can give it a run as well. Butyeah, I think, yeah, I think the top five for I goingto consist of like bond wine, steel quarry and no stone else. Butyeah, and yeah, I'll pe Truka. So yeah, I'm just got itthat took isn't eligible but probably didn't win enough games. But yeah,should be rip account. Yeah, there's actually someone who haven't really mentioned yetwho's right in the mix. For Mine it's Darcy powish. She's I thinkthe last round I just tallied up before we started this, I think bondjust over took parish again. But for me then neck and neck. Ithink he falls away a little bit in the last three rounds where I thinkBot might pick up a couple more. But yeah, for me it's thebond at the moment but, as I mentioned before, I'll mention it innext week's episode. Who Wins My brandlow all Australian time however, this isarguably the potties flagship show the Australian selections with this would be our fourth onenow, including the mid years, and they always go down a treat I'mactually going to do my last this time.

I always do them first because minesyou just a bit of a gag, but I thought I'll changed up thistime because I was thinking about it. When I make the clips of theshow, don't really want some random afl fan just clicking on and seeingme pick will snelling in the forward pocket. Might would like to, you know, expose them to some people with actually good opinions, so I Iwill start with Pilch, who is, in your all Australian teammate. GreatQuestion Mate, and it is as follows. If we start with the full backline, I've got Tom Stewart in one of the back pockets. Fairlyconsensus pick their stephen may full back. And then for the other back pocket, this one was an absolute toss up between two interceptors, earlier and lever. Honestly cannot split them, but I've gone for a lier. Just thinkhe's a little bit more of a pleasure presence on the field, more ofan athletic beast and clearly one of the best interceptors and lockdown defenders in thegame. To see them halfback line, rich and Dale on the outsides givea better running carry and then weadering at send a half back. I don'tthink Harris Andrews was quite stiff not to get a nomination, but fair play. Sent a line. I'm just going to say I'm a I'm normally hugeadvocate for, you know, putting wingers on the outside, not putting,like you know in past years, dust and Martin and the Ford pocket.But there's just way too many good midfielders in this year's crop, so I'vehad to bend my own rules a little bit. So I've gone for SteelBonton, Pelly McRae across the middle. One of them, two of them, will have to cop the wing, but they're just too good not toget a spot on the field. Jack Steeles had number level season and forhim to miss out two years in a row would be disgraceful in the rockgone. I think his last game got him over the line and the factthat they came first, I think they'll give it to him. Him HimDarcy in that new here pretty much all as good as each other, butthe ladder position should get him across the line. And then I have gotI hang on, I've made a mistake here. One second I've got winesand Oliver as a next two midfielders. Oculdn't really rate the wines pick,but considering his favorite for the Brownlow, I should put him in and Ithink he will get picked there just because of all the outside noise. Can'tsee him missing out. For Line half forward, Pertruark, are got onemidfielder in there. I think he also deserves a spot. Being unreal gotmccay, probably the worst common medallist since one thousand seven hundred and forty threewhen they were playing with a round ball or whatever it was, Jake JackStringer, Jake Stringer on the other half forward, flank full forward. GotOne play here that didn't make the squad and that's Charlie Dixon, probably themost biased pick of all time, but I just think he's an absolute presence. Has Four men on him at all times and still leads the lead leagueevery year and contested marks forty seven goals, gets like five hitouts to advantage ofgame. Inside for Hud fifty sets up goals. Just verse at Toylkey forward and then Hawkins, in my opinion, the best key for thisseason, and then toby grain and the other Ford pocket. And then toround out the interchange, I've just got four midfielders, so I've gone withparish. Actually I have put my luggage in there just to get one outsidesort of player. So I got parish mccluggage, took Miller and color mills. I'll see. That's a that's a good one. Rowly, interested tohear whether you have very similar team to...

Piach or not. Alrighty, soI don't really have any starts and numbers or anything like that. I'm justgoing to say how I like him. So starting I'm also read it outthe way it's on like the AFL at. You know how it goes right,and then the two followers down at the very and I'll do it thatway. So I got the back pocket Tommy Stewart. Pretty Standard Selection thatthink you'll get another jacket on them there. Steven May at fullback and then leavea back pocket. I'm also tossing up between lever and a lear,but that combination of main lever this year is just being impenetrable for the days. They've conceded very few goals and yeah, obviously they've. They finished on top. Got The minor premious ship and can't leave him out. In thehalfback line I've got two, my three guys, guys that weren't selecting thesquad. They're the only two guys weren't selecting the squad I've got in here. So one halfback who is in the squad, Daniel Rich. I justdon't understand that man's that man's boat, how he can keep like twenty metersfurther than everyone else in the comp except for the the cannon. It's unbelievable. Center half back, I've actually at Harris Andrews. Still don't know howhe was snubs like man's just an absolute beast, you know. He playslockdown in and intercepts, but is just so consistent as well at it andhe's just an absolutely freak. And then on the other half back flank,I've got I don't know how this guy missed out as well, Aaron Hall. I absolutely love the man. Everyone says, you know, racks upthe stats and all out blab bike he's a stat whatever, but look that'sthat's probably the case in most halfbacks. I think whole is one of thebest. He's not the best kicks in the COMP if you want to gowatch him play, he's I don't know how he does it, but justall these kids are perfectly waited beautifully. Lays out some beautiful darts. Andthe one thing I like about and not that did he does compared to mostother halfbacks, is it just about all of his running is forward. Youknow, most of his kicks aren't, you know, to the like chippingaround the back to the side like he gets his stats as he's running forwardand attacking. So hence wise disposal efficiency might be a bit low, butI still think he's probably one of the best kicks in the calm and isgot awesome pacity users as well. So Yeah, look, in my opinions, one of the best, if not the best, halfbacks in the gameat the moment. The boys is just exquisite. If it's playing for atop eight team, he'd be a lot more well recognized. Going to thecenter now I've Yeah, look, I'm also sort of bent the rules here, but you know, got to do it. You got to do so. I Got Sammy Walsh on one wing, Jack mccrae on the other wing andJack Steele in the center. I'm not I'm not copying this man missingout in the field for the second year in a row. He's going onif they if still if there's another saints robbery this week, I'm going toabsolutely lose it. But anyways, those three, I mean they're absolutely awesomeselections. Half forward line. PETRARKA would have loved to be putting the cartnext to him. So I feel a bit better about myself. But unfortunately, yeah, that's that's a thing of the past and the twenty four adraft. Tommy Hawkins, sent a half forward obviously does a lot more thanjust kick goals of the cats. He's a huge player for them. DANEZORCA as well. I've got the other half forward flank. Just trying toget as many sort of genuine forward options in here as possible without playing toomuch midtime. But yeah, he's been awesome for them all. The mostpainful player to not having super coach this year for pockets. Toby Green.wellfare players, absolute beast. Could literally change a game. Just what justhim could just change the game and hopefully they'll be the case this weekend becauseof some to see how father giants can go. Jakie stringer other forward pocket. Yeah, he's the package has delivered this year and hopefully can get themover the line this weekend. would be awesome to see it. Bombers,upset and Harry, but kite full for...

...yeah, probably agreed. It's probablythe worst Coleman that we've seen in a while, but there's a coleman.UNTHELESS. It's going to have an awesome creer maxigurn in the ruck. Can'tgo past this man. Like this year was a lot tougher that newly anddarcy were. Would definitely were thought, but for me it was just gonethe pit to them. I mean he's work around the grounds, unbelievable,and then bombs some pelly and wines are going to be accompanying Jack Steele inthat center around gone. So that's a pretty formidable formidable starting three in thereon the bench. Clayton Oliver, absolute beast. I can't remember if youhad it on not, Pilch, I don't know if you stunned them ornot, but yeah, I didn't item. Okay, cool, I didn't rememberyou saying that, Rory Lad as well, second spot on the bench. Absolute animal. Tyler calls and Superman definitely the right name for Mr Kromtook Miller as well filled on the bench and I was tossing up in thislast one by went with Darcy Parrish. So yeah, that bench just sortof chokers full of midfielders. But you know, like I said, there'sjust way to me midfields pick this year. I mean Jacob Poper, come on, but yeah, I'll that's that's going to be the team I've gotwith. You know, obviously a lot of players. It was stiff Gothree, Dickson, nicknat lines, alier, obviously Salem and Dale, Jacob Waiting, and also buddy. But like, yeah, I don't know. Ijust think Hawkins of a car just did enough. That's that's the Tame I'mgoing to roll with, in my opinion. And Cooper Shaman stiff as well.My opinion, the car was about the sixth best key forward this season. But saying is you one the Coleman, you have to put him in.You just can't leave our common from the Australia just yeah, yeah,stiff, right, stiff, because I have but there I can the comeback at that. I'll back it. Thanks for his thanks. All right, yeah, same orders, pilch. So my full back line. Actuallyhaven't heard anyone talk about this blow all year, but he's somehow in mytop ten in the voting and it's actually shutting her every single week. Forthe West Coast. He pretty much has the most effective kicks, the mostrebound S, all those sort of stats that are halfback flankers should dominate in. He is one of the most consistent out of also great intercepting. Iknow he's calves and Hommy's native not the strong stuff at the moment, buthe is gotten in there for that. Is Hairline. Well, it's likethe big M mate, even though they're sponsored by Hungry Jack's. It isnot looking good there. Bro It's he just seems to shake it off.To be honest. He's with the greatest respector Shannon shout if he's watching,showers his family, but shock and head. But doesn't mean he can't make theAustralian side. Full back, I've got Tommy Stewart. Can't remember whatgame it was, but might have been the one way gary row and kickthis the sealer after the siren but there was a game around that time ofyear and he was full like prime ranting it. And Yeah, I justlove Tommy Stewart. Love you story. Love how he just sort of camefrom bar and head's footy and came through the vfls and all that good stuff. And then my other back pocket I've got Jordan Ridley. Then in thehalfback line he was yeah, heard he missed down this tare. I actuallyhave no idea who's in the squad. So but I did see put messagethat one. In Halfback Flank I've got Daniel Ridge. I actually think thisyear he's finally getting the plaudits he deserves. I think he's had a very underratedpast five or six years. Yeah, as row he said, he canjust kick the shit out of the ball, which is a underrated skilland footy. Someone who can kick it sixty years opposed to forty s prettypretty large competitive advantage. It send a half back. I actually couldn't splitthese two. May or main leaver exact same amount of votes to me,pulled on the exact same amount of games, but I just went Stephen May.Not sure why his name was on...

...top in the order. So whenwith him, so excel has decided leave his fate, sadly. Then I'vegot Luke Ryan on the other one. Those who watched the podcast last yearwould know that my algorithm at absolutely frosts Luke Ryan. So he is inthere as a like, I guess, the third tall defender bit more agilethan most tall defenders going around him and Ridley can sort of share the smallerforwards than in the center. I've actually gone really strict this year on thewingers and the forwards. I've done some center bounce attendance research and made surethey like a ten lesson fifty percent to be in these positions. So oneof my wings is Jack Lookocius. I think he was in my middle midyear. Australian side. Had to confirm with Rowe that he actually is a winger, but rogain the Green Lights, so happy to stick him in there.The other wing I've got human pluggage for me. Mentioned it a few monthsago, but if there's a player I would like to have at the ballsixty out forwards leading all over the place, would be him, because I canassure you he'll hit one of the forwards on the chest. Then I'vegot liver in the middle of the center. I know that's a very rogue pick, but he was dominating the first half of the year and then,as me and piled talking about before he came on, are teams sort ofstarted realizing that he was so pivotal to the dog success and he's started gettinga lot more attention and has subsequently seen his and the team's form dwindle.Then in the Rock I've snubbed Maxi gone. I've got nick NAM Nui. He'sjust been out Shawn Darcy for me. So the Rackman from the Wester tearingit up at the moment. And then my rover is I got thebond and parish, my to Brownlow candidates. Then in the forward line, thisone's row, but he actually missed more games miss less games and Ithought but still doesn't deserve it. Didn't really play that well when he playedit. Actually have dusty in my half ward flank. I think he pickedup like fourteen votes, so you must have done all right. Sent halfforward. Look at I really want to pay any attention to this bloke afterwhat he did the other week. Genuine piece of shit. But can't denyhis first six to eight weeks of the season was arguably the most dominant sixtyeight week period we saw all season, and that is tailor Walker. Absolutelytore it up for the crows. And then my other half forward flank guy. He's not really a pure forward. He sort of depends week on week. He plays wing, he plays halfback flank, he does also play halfforward flank. He's kicked four and three goals also in different games. Yeah, it is Jordan Dawson. Absolutely love the man. Got A few.I reckon you will get a few votes in the Brownlow this year. Therewere a couple games that you actually tore up. And then the full forwardline got, in my opinion, a top five player in the competition.Toby Green. Talked about how much I love him in the past, buthe's got to be there. There my full forwards, the Tomahawk, oneof the most consistent tool forwards in the comp nowadays. And then the otherFord pocket was going to go to tooll forwards just went nut. Most teamshave three. So the big challenge it still so got in to my team. Oh Yeah, he I love his vote. Get her in the wholeside by a significant margin. But yeah, my algorithm hates at all forward,so I had to dig deep for that one, but he snuck inwith eight votes. He's about ten in the port being f currently for me, but that's saying something than the Inter Change. I've got Jack Steel,Clayton, all of our Christian Pertruco, who can you know, spend sometime forward for me as well. And then I thought I'd pick a defensiveminded player, so I picked Jack Sebel, even though I don't know if heactually can defend. Honorable mentions got to go to Dane Z ORCO.I think he's someone who's been pretty overlooked this year. I think a lotof the BRISTAN players don't get as much attention as maybe they should. Butmoving in the last two years, he sort of tris transition from a guywho would do stints in the guts for...

...play forward to a genuine midfielder andhe's I think he had his best year this year. I reckon then tookobviously killed it. This year just missed out for me. SEWAN DARCY JUSTMISSED OUT ROW. He's man Aaron Hall. Shout out to Braul Bent, forhe's a shit kick. Disgraceful opinion. Broady, that's kick. Yeah,I love him as well, but he just missed out for me.And then, yeah, Jake Lever as I mentioned, between May and Lee, but it was a coin flip, you could say, why aren't theyboth in there? But the algoryth them needs luke crying to be in myAustralian side. So you know, I've got to just listen to the algorithm. But yeah, that's my teams. Some weird selections in there. Iactually have no idea how many of them made the squad. I'd be impressedif it's over fifty percent. But that is my Australian that is it's quitea few consensus picks the white too many, though that we all picked at theobvious candidates. Think Stewart got on all our teams than the bond.I think the truck, Oliver and still all made our teams. I thinkthe rocks going to be really interesting. I agree with you guys are it'sgoing to be Gorney, but I'm not necessarily sure if he deserves it.So definitely excited for Thursday. Going to be interested to see how our teamstuck up against the experts. Well, they say they're experts, but asalways said, they do give Morley Williams votes on the Brownlow, so notsure how well they know the game. But anyway, just a quick supercoach chat before we preview the exciting upcoming finals. Week one. Rowley,you're really the only one of interest here, sadly, to me. In pilch. How your ranking actually was pretty good, I read in the groupchat this morning. So what did you finish, Matt? How'd you gothis weekend? I mean, compared to who do you came like two hundred. It wasn't that good, but I'll finish. Yeah, I I'm justtrying to load it up now. Able to win one one of the leagues, which is Handy. Got A got a win in my cricket Sharks League, so I was good at dethroned one of the guys is one. Itlike straight from last two or three years, but finished one hundred and eighty threeone. So inside a top case. I guess that's some lingually, yeah, could have been a lot better, but it was good to see yourname. Super Coach. Mama, yeah, when it this year goton it because I think she was about to quit before the season started.So it's always good to see that financial I'd go out to, you know, a parent, because obviously got few kiss look after and all that.So I'm really good to see that happened. But yeah, not a bad weekend. Captain and teach. Nothing much else to say rather than can't waitto not have shy Bolton next year. But yeah, pretty MVP. Thelast week for the season was Jake Lloyd hundred and fifty four got my winover the line, so that was unbelievable from him as a unique so yeah, how much elseeds to be said? Yeah, that made peach. Theseason's been over for a while. I did not have a great weekend,but had to donuts, so wasn't expecting to do well. Lost the woodenspoon playoff, so came last in a League of ten, which isn't verygood, but we move on. Not sure what I take away from thisyear. Had some shit injury luck. Realistically, I should just be moresafe of my picks next year, but not sure if I will because it'skind of fun just picking Shit people pelage. Any takeaways from the armate? Alsohad some pretty shit injury luck, but probably just don't burn your tradesby around nine and don't try it out Luke Parker at the by, becauseif you do, he'll go on to average a hundred and forty for therest of the year. Definitely. Yeah, the other takeaways probably invest a bitmore time into my rookie selection and I think I had to burn threetrades of the start of the year just correcting that before price rises, whichprobably came back to buy me a little...

...bit, because that could have beenhelpful replacing some injured players. And probably need to stop picking like tall forwardsand shit like that, because they just never do well, even though nothaving Kazitski that one week where he bloody tuned up hurt like hell. Butyeah, like that's just someone who was never going to do well and supercoach, so probably it just going to be a bit smart of a shitlike that. But yeah, I was a good game good year. Lookingforward to EPL and NFL fantasy, which I much preferred to super coach.With the greatest respect, might be just a saw loser here as someone whofinished outside the top K but yeah, looking forward to those two seasons abit more. And then we were addressed super coach next March, but thatmeets us into our first finals preview, which I'm really excited about. FourGames to an Adelaide too, and Tazi, never thought I'd say that heading intoa final series. must say I'm absolutely shattered to hear that the buyersgoing to be between the PRELIMB and the final. I know it might bedue to the fact that they still don't even know where it's going to beand stuff like that and they need time to prepare, but I think it'sgoing to be a serious buzz kill. But anyway, well, at leastwe don't have the buy now short term satisfaction in lockdown weekend with no footywould have been that fun while we're still locked down here in Melbourne. Butfirst game of the weekend PILCH's Mighty Port Adelaide power up against the beloved GElong cats. On this podcast at the Adelaide over port, of the favorites. The lines. Four and a half will start, wrote the unbiased opinionon the panel. Who are you backing here at the line? Just quickly. Oh, yeah, I am. I was disappointed first to hear ananswer that buy happening before the gray. There will obviously be a buzz killeffect. However, does give the opportunity for anyone can cust to still playand also we should have the brown load between that period of time. SoI guess there's something, but that's the end the day. Will Yeah,there will be a bit of that weird sort of gap, is what itis. If there's any chance of US getting out of lockdown it'll be inthat period rather than, you know, this week coming up. So it'sbetter to have as many as much food as we can in the short term. But basically, I know it's tough this one on my my philosophy goingin is it the cats? I think we're going to win the whole thingbecause I think in a year where it's so much on certainty, it mightbe the team that's got the most experience that come out on top. Sofor that reason I'm like Gow the cats. I it wasn't the worst result.They'm actually losing because I think playing Brisbane's going to be pretty scary andI think no offense pilled funny pool. Still obviously a very vulnerable team justbecause of their record this year against top eight teams. Their win over theywent over the dogs, was obviously very sort of emphatic. But it willbe 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 cuts aswell, just because I took the dogs last week and port one.So going to try and stick to that method. But peeled, I knowyou're walking on thin ice right now with your jins and anti jings beliefs,but if you care to indulge us in how you think this game would go, what you think the result will be? Any indication? Wink twice if youthink tice. You dint potual in anything. What do you think aboutthis game? Mate? Firstly that the last twenty seconds of that to longMelbourne game you would honestly think they taked it. It was that bizarre.But in terms of this game, I'll be tipping to long by probably notquite as much as the oseven grand final,...

...but like in that sort of inthat sup now it's along and a type one, it's along in atail one. Yeah, we are cracking, cracking contest. Yeah, I won'tcracking test. I want interrogate further because I don't know if that's contestof the year. Actually I'm predicting. Yeah, I have to say alot of games at the ADELAIDEO will seem to be good Games. So,especially prime time finals. I'm very excited for it. That means us intothe first hazy game. Sadly for redols it's in Warnceston, so shout out. Don't know if he could get there anyway because he had soccer, butpretty relevant for those listening. Shout out to Redos. It is the SydneyDerby, though they called the battle of the bridge. Think Sydney of thefavorites going into it. The lines eight and a half. Jesus. Actuallyhave no idea here, row, what do you reckon? I don't needall all these games. I don't know. Yeah, I'm stuck. But whichis great. But you know, everyone's saying toby green going to behuge. Facts, we're going to win it for them. Yeah, Ithink the five pound judoous is Ford wines and be huge, but Sydney havebuddy. So Yeah, look, it could come down because I think CalaMills is probably going to miss this game, or I'm short at the moment,but he might, and I think Kennedy's going to be coming off aninjury. So whether Jutos can take advantage at the middle we interested to see. But I might just back the favorite in the Swan's just kiss of thanthat. I really don't know who's going to win this one. Yeah,pilch. Yeah, I'm very keene for these. Remain in three games.Not Keen at all for the first game. Probably would rather die and watch it. But so I'll be downing three bottles of wine. But Um,this is actually the easiest game to tip for me. I think the swanniesare miles better team than the giants. Last time the giants played in Taz, I believe they drew with North Melbourne and just played like absolute shits.I don't think they like the actually, I don't know if it was thesame ground, but they don't like it down in Tazi. So if theSwan's rock up, I think they take this by six goals. So themat the line. Yeah, fair enough. Yeah, this is to fun.I'll be going for the giant. Actually, I don't care. Ilike both of them. I'll probably going for the giants. But yeah,if if Sydney beat Goldco's by twenty points, I think I would tip the giants. But the way the Sydney Schwe's disposed of somewhat talented side in thesun's so emphatically, I think I'm gonna have to chip them. I don'tknow if I want to, but yeah, hopefully buddy doesn't kick like ten.Actually, I don't know. That's kind of green Chee from me,but U he is. I could see him kicking twenty is Dicking, suckingthat Sammy tail and me absolute wet my our twenty two under twenty two fullback. Actually, I don't even know if he was in your team,but Saturday night prime time. Actually, I'm assuming it's Saturday because I thinkthe doggies game Sunday, but I'm guessing there is. Yeah, okay,Beautiful Melbourne Brisbane to my prize. It's to the Adelaide ovil. Had Noidea before writing this segment up. Melbourne head into it. Favorites line issix and a half pilch. Are you back in your beloved Melbourne or YourBeloved Brisbane, mate? Yeah, it looks enough with the beloved calls,mate, but both, I like both face teams in Adelaide, but I'mjust gonna have to go to Melbourne. At the line as well. Yeah, you're very nice. Very interesting location, mate, at the moment. What'sgoing on there? It's an important factor. Yeah, it's true.I've never heard talked about it. You're froth on it, but it actuallyis an interesting point. I never really factored in. But, like groundsize, is legit matter. But,...

Rowley, who you back in hereat the moment? Melbourne's probably only team I would have that would beat thelines in this final series. I'm going to back Melbourne, I think,to see me an awesome game. But yeah, I think I email hisdefense will be too good for Brisbane's attack and I think nold will be ableto get enough goals to win this one. Yeah, I'm with you boys,clean and sweet back in a Melbourne. If it was at the Gabatoire,probably go brisbane, but any other ground in Australia I'll be taking thedays. I still think the lines our home ground bullies as well. Notsure. Not sure if I'm a believer in them away from home at anyany ground, to be honest. Yeah, actually don't hate that Theo. ButSunday, first Sunday final in a while. Not sure when the lastone was, but I read that somewhere. First one in a while, maybe, since like the pre finals by or something. Read that the otherday. Dog. He's playing the bombers in Launceston once again. How canthe Launceston be hosting to finals? What's the world come to? DOUGI's lineis ten and a half they I hope these games are all close because theyleg it seem like they're all going to be tight. They really are?You backing in the dog used to get the job done. I'm back inthe bombs with this one. I think this is one upset. I reckonwill happen. I'm yeah, I'm pretty good. The dogs to go outstraight away. I reckon the firepower of essence forward line's going to be toomuch. You know, Peter Right could kick a bag. You Know JakeStringer, tip, of all these blokes stick can they can do a lot. So, yeah, I think without Bruce, I know he's obviously like, you know, not the best, but obviously he's had a very goodyear bruce, but you know he's not like an actually, no, sorry, tipp is not playing. I don't know I said that, but obviouslybruce is not like a you know, a super style. The competition,but I think he's really important to their lineup. It takes a lot ofease off Norton shoulders. So one of the most called seconds too. Butwithout him, we saw it happened in the weekend. They like apart fromthe first few minutes of the game, they lack an ability to score.So yeah, I'm going to be back in the bonds here. I canthey going to be too good. Yeah, fair enough, for sure. Thedoggies played in launcest in like two weeks ago against Hawthorne, but anddid not go well. So that's going to be interesting. I'm actually goingto back the doggies head to head Essen and at the line. I thinka line of tender has bit generous, but pill chew, you back inin here. Yeah, this from me, aside from the first game, isvery hard to tip. But I can see an outcome. We're likebottom pelly and all that. Just come out with an absolute vendetta and theyjust they hit their their earlier, earlier season form. And also we allknow what Essen and are like in finals. You know, they still finish theseason like eleven and eleven or whatever. So they're not, they're not.I wouldn't be calling them a good team. So I could say thedogs also winning by eighty points, and for that reason I'll be taking thedogs. Yeah, fair enough. It would be cool to see us win, but at the same time they've probably, I can definitely say them, anice not sure if I can handle the absolute shit talk that will copfrom our mate. So yeah, kind of hope the dogs get up graciousback to paint out tails and dolls. But yeah, and I that's it. That's it for another week of the on the wall Potty, the greatmid the Great Australian special, as I mentioned at the start, the flagshipshow of the Potty, and then talk dribble around it. Pretty much excitedfor all four games. Hopefully I'm going to actually watch some this weekend becauseI have successfully run an AFEL podcast all season and have hardly watched any foryou. But, as I'm sure you...

...are all where by my Australian team. But yeah, hoping it's all good. Go Port I guess don't have tosay go saints this week unless we're talking about on the sesh or something, but mate Hatterson crouch will be on the sess. There's probably still goingfrom the other night for the other night, but they are don't know I goton them, like I don't know where they were, but like,if these teams were in bubbles like elsewhere, like I just would not be comingback to Melbourne. But Anyway, yeah, I don't know where they'vebeen, but PILCH, hopeful, get up, mate. Don't want tosay anything further. Don't on a jink set. But yeah, thanks forjoining me here again. Boys, thanks bad. Well, be back nextweek with a big and bad episode. What the fuck am I all again? And they can bad, they can juicy. But yeah, Thursday NFLawards. Then we are treated with the final.
