Welcome back to the other ball podcast.This is episode. A hundred and thirty three of the show from not mistaken,and we here once again through our weekly Al Chat once again joined by Roy.How are you may mixed very mixed after the week? A well when I say makes veryvery flat, but it was a good week end of football,none, the less so yeah I get some more right. Now. How are you yeah, I'm pretty well pretty. Well, wewere just channing of theaters meant to be the super moon tonight and I havebeen left a little bit disappointed, but I swear these. Things are once in amillion and then they seem to happen every two years, but don't know what that is, and obviouslya lot of news at the moment. It is Wednesday for US recording this. Thehawthorn goal coast game is just being postponed so they're having their bythis week and that's basically, all we know so far. There's I don't think Ithink at the moment. There's still crowds but you'd have to imagine that'snot going to take place. Yeah Yeah, like we're pretty confident, will beinglocked down for the weekend, so would doubt there'll be crowds I'd.Imagine the rest of the Games will go ahead, buying like a coid case in theactual teams, but yeah, probably just no crowds, and that sort of situationprobably same as last year, so it doesn't affect the AL too much gladly alittle bit of an effect on Super Coach which we might touch on it a little bit,but not not too much. To be honest, but I looking at around ten of the Al thatwas last weekend, win is M, loses mate, who were the biggest wines in youropinion. First off the Brisbane Lines, I had sort of floated the idea that Irichmond might upset them, but Brisben proved to be too strong. I wasobviously a good test for in Richmond or abbos one of the teams, thecompetition that just take advantage of the momentum that they get and canreally make you pay for it, but Brisbane were too strong as a very goodperformance from them, with the very tart talented list that they've goteven so so, given that we've obviously had a few things to say aboutthis year, we've sort of question how good they really are, but I mean Friday,night sort of they stap wit, their effect of the competition to say thatthey are still here and they are good enough, Adelaide as well over Melbourne.That was an incredible win from them. Let's look on Friday night I had afriends twenty first I got a bit of an earful from Jack. Broad Ben Tomar isThomas being a Melbourne, Fan, of course, about how I just talked thedays down about how I said that Adelaide were going to maybe win. Imentioned that I flowed the fact that they would win and I was backing theirline, but not only did the line get up, the cores got up. So right back at himwas and broady. I was right and I wasn't talking absolute trible and thecrows did exactly what I expected them to do. They took advantage of that alad home crowd. The pressure gauge was off the scale which is exactly how theylike to play over there, and it does seem to be a very tough ass now goingover to Adalat Ov, all facing the Adelaide crowd and coming away with awind, as we saw early in the year at a lay, obviously got the upsot we know ofACA long and last year they got their first winner of hawks at a let over. Soit is going to prove very tough location and they are building theirown little mini fortress, which is what I alluded to before. The season began.Whether Adle could use that to their advantage. So I like to think that mypredictions are coming to light, so that was a very, very good win for them.The dogs as well I'M gonna. I won't really touch on the dogs and aging totouch on the sins and another huge winner for the weekendwas g ws in many panters jumped on the eagles when they heard to be green wasout, and so did I, but the giants proved to be too strongand they show that they do have the talent list and they are really makinga push for the. Ah, there is one maybe two spots up for grabs, butprobably only one the moment to round out that eight and I think thegiants are Re really going to come home strong, even with toby green out really show west coast that they dohave a travel problem. It hasn't gone away. I think they're unbeaten adopt usbut they're almost having one a game outside of it, so really worrying timefor them, because, obviously you can't win premierships adopt is theyobviously proved that they can win on the G in two thousand and eighteen.However, this is in two thousand and eighteen, it's three is don the track,and maybe they're traveling has gotten worse. It may appear so, but it'sobviously only round ten has just gone, so it's still nearly halfway throughthe year, so we don't have a full gauge...

...on where they're at, but it is, candefinitely be assumed that they do have a travel issue and we can see if theygoing to rectify that later in the season. But who are your big witnessfrom the weekend? Yeah agree with you with Adelaide andtwo. So I have to say: I've been pretty harsh. Only on Cameron in the past willnot necessarily the past month, but the start of the season, especially if youlook at the injury list and then consider how well they've gone in thelast six weeks. It's pretty incredible that they're notching winds up againstthese top quality teams, so yeah that race, for the eight position inparticular I'm pretty confident the top seven is what we think of will be, butI do think that at spots up for grabs, I think Sidney j were from free, themain contenders and free on g WS. Both had big winds and Freres walls overSydney, so yeah G WS. I think they're, probably the most informed team out ofthose three so they're, looking very good to stick into that final spot friogot the winning gainst Sydney, I'm not sure about their finals. Hopes, as Iwas just checking the run home, and I think theirs is probably the tougher ofthe three but to beat Sydney. You know, I guess you can they say thatkind of Matos like an eight point match, because that means Sydney lose a gameand at the moment they're only on the outside of the top eight by percentage,so yeah they've kept themselves well andtruly in the hunt with a pretty solid winning and city and siding kicked verystraight. They keep saying like thirteen goal, six binds or somethinglike that so normally when a Tan keeps veryaccurately like we saw with the Avala game, usually helps them get over theline, but Frio were good enough to you know just create enough chancesthat it didn't matter how accurate Sydney were so yea sold him from Frio,Goodwin, Budgwin and also essene. I thought, even though north of prettyaverage to for this essentiate team to be a tamed by seventy two. I think itshows how far they've actually come, even though they are beating theeventual wooden spooners like I don't think anyone would havethought astone would have been capable of a seventy two point victory thisseason. So that's the second big victory of the year in terms of marginso yeah, even though it was north. So it was a pretty good effort and I'll touch on the losers. FIRST UPI'll leave, maybe the saint to you. I know we talk about it. I at probably eh e H. I think you're a bit probably sick of it at this point, but I'mactually my two loses a actually the teams of the on the ball. Podcast SanGoto import for some people might say, I'm a bitharsh putting them into her, but we gave them a bit of a spray last weekbeing disappointing in the big games- and I was joking- well not jokingly,but I was just missing or calling wood at l. You know I was pretty dispect tothem. Thought port would easily come out and pump men by forty yard and inthe end they just scraped over the line to beat Colin with by a point so yeah.I thought it was pretty disappointing from port because usually what they dois they lose the big games and then come out and pump a small team andeveryone doesn't care, but they've actually backed it up with another palperformance. So I was talking to Pilch, obviously front of the show, and he wassaying he was actually like, not that bothered by it becausehe said they played so bad and they still managed to win but I'll say intohim, and he did agree like if you're going to be a premier ship team. Evenwhen you do play bad, you probably should beat someone like Collingwood bylike twenty or thirty. It shouldn't really be being them by point so yeah.I thought that was a little bit disappointing. I know they still didwin and the good teams have to win dirty, sometimes, but probably cuttingit a little bit closer than you would think and yeah. I think in the last month, orso I think, we've realized how important DERSA and in particular Zachbutters, is to the team. Obviously, exact butters were startingto get a lot of credit in the last well like eighteenmonths of his career, but I think now, with his absence and the decline inports performance, I think pretty clear that there's definitely a correlationthere and it shows how important he is- and I just say, there's a fewpassengers in the port team right now that I don't think if we look at theRichmond Team, I think all twenty two put in the shift pretty much every weekin terms of like you know when they've been winning flags and that doesn'treally happen in the port team, like there's still four or five blokes, whodon't rock up every week and in particular I think the likes of Connors.I really needs to step up. I think he had like seven touches on the weekend.I don't know if he's playing with injury right now, but he looks nothinglike we thought he was going to be and then there's the people who you knowthree four five years into their career, like tod Marshall, Riley, Bonner andRyan, Burton who they've all showed...

...glimpses at different stages in theircareers. But if this port group is going to go on to win a flag in thenext couple of years, or even this year that they're the caliber of player,they need to step up because right now, Travis Boke ally wines, Robin Gray,they're, doing everything they need to do and it they're being they're having to carry the port tenquite often, but it's those role, players that need to step up, like we've seenin Richmond Games in their big finals blocks like picket Jack, Ran leam Baker.They all step up when it matters. And now the port kind of similar ashe onplayers need to start doing the same. If they're going to look to be apremier ship contender but yeah, that's my little ran about portoer. I actuallydon't know: What's happened to Canoros, like I remember after the first year helooked like he was going to be an absolute jet. I remember pic saying hereminded him of like I think a few experts aresaying that as well, that he reminded a lot of people of nat five in his firstyear, like just had all the skill kid goals was really small, but when hebulked up that expected him to be like a gunn sit Maden. Yet Rosie is notreally improved that much since his first year, if anything is probablygone backwards, but yeah, I don't know, what's happening there. So if you wantto talk about Saint Colama or touch on port, whatever you want to do, yeah I'll just quickly know west coast,big Lu, so I just touched it them, though, obviously have that huge travelissue Sidney as well. I know we were talking about in thelast episode chalking up all these little winds, and this is one of thosewinds that they could have gotten against tainments, arguably not too farbehind them, but obviously fell short being a topeight team or the team that wants to make the top hats in he probably shouldhave come away with a being the dying minute of the second of the game.Rather Oli Florent had a chance to hit two targets in the inside. Fiftylinguas will hayward and maybe keeney kick the straight over them went forMiracle Goal from fifty out and missed so bit. I don't come my name momentthere from Alle, but yeah. The big issue is saying killerGod. It was terrible about six or seven of US saints fans gathered it. Onehousehold and watched us just get absolutely fisted by a hundred andeleven points, so the on the car it home. I had a verygood chat to good friend, Lucky Jones, who we just basically tried to dissectthe whole problem. It's ultimately come down to the playdevelopment. I think of our players. It's not so much the less management asmany people are harping on to to it, be a bear. If we look at the leader, this is whatI've alluded to the last few weeks as well. We compared calls and calling itSaint Kilda. If you look at the a plus players on our list or its ore justrunning out on Saturday night, you've got Jack Steele and no one else. You can't have breakheart, given theyear he's had and last year, yeah there's literally no one else inconsideration for an a plus elate player. You look at all the other teamsof the competition, let's at least go through top eight, so Brisbin obviouslyhad the likes of MC CLUAG is coming through jared lines. ZARCO HarrisAndrews Richmond. We don't even need to talk about the dogs, we know who theyare bon mccray, just based on there in time and field. The days obviously havePetrak and they've got down. They've got all of our. If the swans, you know have J P, Luke,Parker Body Franklin, obviously Tommy Paple, you know, pat, you know you justtouched on this and west coast as well, with their key position, players andthere a late midfield and the other teams. Obviously Jo long most of theirlisters are late. The other with Saint Kilda. We've onlyreally got Jack Steele and me obviously marshals in the wings, andI classify him as a late. But apart from that, this really no oneelse and that's the issue because from the last sort of six or seven or eightyears of drafting you'd expect a few of them to come through and become a litewhich is what's happened with about fifteen sixteen seven just about everthe club they've had a few players come up and come through and the moresuccessful clubs fan will come through. We haven't had any, as I've touched onthe last previous weeks. They've been good enough to be in the best twentytwo they've been good enough to say, Yep, I'm going to progress in my futureyears when I get older, but that's been the mind set for the last few years ofthose plays so that every week we've got sort ofMediocre, B pos players running out there is about fifteen. Sixteen of them, then o just creates a massive, falsesense of belief when we chalk up these winds, because they're good enough toget wins against the average poor attaint, but they're not good enough tocarry the teams story to carry the team in these sort of hard foot matchesbecause they're, not a plass players and the problem is they are the players that I guess youcan consider undropt or very hard to drop, because they are good enough tobe in that best. Twenty two, but...

...they're, not good enough- will not yetgood enough to be classified, as are good players, which is what we areclassifying them as to these B plus players, who wereconsidering Zape great players, they aren't that, because they're not takingthat next step, you know you look at the likes of like if I roll through theback line, as can milky dooble Howard Jimmy Webster, all that they all just really saw the B plus gradeplayers, and you could argue that they were at least maybe two of them shouldhave progressed to become a grade players, but they just haven't they'vestagnated in their careers. You look at our midfield. Buildings is the samecase. You know he's not consistent enough he's showing glimpses that hehas this to disposal for Gold Games, but apart from that is usually fifteentwenty touches and he isn't becoming a a grade player and then it's the samewith idelers ion he's not playing at the moment, and then it's the same withyou know. Xact Jones is obviously anjeras. Well, then, you know the forward line of Damnbutlers, a massive downhill scare. At the moment it's just Seras as well. You KnowTwenty or twenty five touches a game. Can't keep savers life. These guys justaren't becoming a late. You know you look at Huntercombe, old, coffee orcan't get a kick in the BF. These guys just aren't taking a next step so thatwhen we do have fifteen plus B grade players running out in the field everyweek and we consider them our good players are, you know our foundation,concrete players and then we lose and we drop the SEGO players or running outwith us or the young kids, and then we lose again the following week. Wewonder what's happening Whye, we improving it's, because these playersthat are b plus grade players, the so Beta B, PASCA players, they're makingthem they're making as many mistakes as these other guys that are gettingdropped because they're being to be plus grade players- and I don't thinkmany saints fans are seeing that because we consider them to be our goodplayers. We consider them to be the A placcate players ever. The club has butthey're not they're, not taking that next step to become those a plus gradeplayers, which is the problem. The play development at Saint Kilda footballclub is not up to scratch at all these drive days and not just going to the next level andthey're stagnating their careers. And if you look at the whole list, it's aproblem to everyone, apart from probably Jack Steele and RolandMarshall, who have obviously come on Le Lips and bounce since they day do butyeah obviously part from them. No one has come through and becominggone from, yoc to be a they're gone from euro, so sees a B, a b class,helpless botton. The team we've considered them a good player, but thenthey haven't progressed. They haven't gone on from that they held thatquality and then they keep their spot on the team. But then, when we lose, wewonder why it's because they're making as many mistakes ever one else becausethey're be to be Pasrepan, RS and they're not becoming a grade playerswho obviously dont makers, many mistakes and all that so yet, at the end of the day, these guys, who we consider our topplayers they're not good enough to be top players for a team that should beimprimit contention and that's the problem. It's the play development, thesame killer, football club. That is the Proem of the moment. It's not Max King,who everyone typing on about who is in his second year of playing footy andnearly it killed Jolon two weeks ago in every aspect, apart from his dogkicking, which is unfortunate because he is a lovely kick her. He was inschool and he's got to love the action everything, but obviously we've seen afew yips in it in his game and at the end of the day he still tore apart thata long team in every aspect other than the goal kicking. So he he is someone Icould constantly say, will come on and be one of the best tall falls in thecompetition. Apart from that, yeah look T it's the play, developments andkiller, and the least it's not so much a les management. It's the blokes we'vegot running out every week that we considered to be a lot better than theyreally are and we're blind abon a fact that they are technically are betterplayers but they're, not good enough to be our best players. That makes senseso I know I've prays prepared Myself About Fifty Times there, but that isthe sole issue would saying killed a football call. I think that's why, when we do sort of come under pressureduring games, we don't have anyone to pick us up because everyone's sort oflooking to the next player, because they're not the best player running outthere, so man, that's the fun. The mental is sue.It's saying, kill red something that really is to be addressed by the the playing group with Im.Because that's the issue, it's the play development, it's not the list ofmanagement. So that's why? I had a lot of time to think about what words Iwanted to use in this podcast and what you words I probably shouldn't use butyeah, that's that's my extensive wrap up of the size yeah. I actually think that's a theme in most sports. I don't think Ithink whenever there's a team, that's under performing everyone just looks atlike the recruitment or in Al's case drafting but yeah. I think playdevelopments never really talked about because it's a bit of a tough one,because it's hard to note whether it's the coach, not coaching them wellenough or if it's the play, is just...

...happy being a b plus player a yeah. Ithink that actually applies to a lot of teams. I think Carton's, probably in asimilar boat like they've, had a lot of top picks and they've kind of just notreally gone on and being good players or they've brought in players andthey've not done anything special. where, if you look, I know players in agood team look better. But if you look at someone like somewhere like Brisbin,they brought him. Lions he's an a gray player now that brought an even song,like Lincoln McCarthy, who was a vl Galong player, basically and now he'sone of their exactor players so yeah, it's justdefinitely an important thing. In a big time we basically seen Richmond. Theycan turn anyone into a quality player so yeah. I actually think that's areally good pan or from your luck, but moving on to your predicted top aand your players of the week mate interested to see if your top pateraschanged after that Sydney loss, but who you got, I've kept the top three the same, soI've got the dogs and then the days, and then the cats a bit more short on that I've got poledit forth, giving that it don't seem as good as they werein the early rounds of the season. I expect them to be ante back, especiallywhen they get the few kids at the got coming back in, like exact budes, forexample, the Lions I've got coming up down ofsixth, the Tigers, sorry to fifth, the Tigersare slip down to six. I to I do they going to get a few players back thisway, then down press year is virtually a certainty and they're going to getthe likes of Edwards and Lambert in soon the eagles in it seventh, because theyjust can't travel, and we now know that, and it really is now going to be a flip,the coin between the spans and the giants. If Tibe Green, I know it wasn't animpact. I know it wasn't an impact on the weekend, but in saying that if tobygreen is playing for giants, I have the giant now and there is not obviouslyfor a bit of an extended period, so I'm going to still have the swans in there,maybe just by percentage of I o honestly. I wouldn't be surprised if my tipchanges to gs next week, but yeah. It's I'm glad that now thereis a little bit of under certainty around this top at the gas. I didn'twant it to just be a set top aid after a few weeks, but yeah the more I'm just going to havethis one there. They do have a bit of an easy fix or coming up, but in sayingthat I think they can be a little bit vulnerable to these teams that arearound their stage or just below them, as we saw on the week end to Frais,it's going to be a bit of a weight and see on that last one, but yeah I've gotthis ones in there for my top three players of the week. It's definite noteone. This is probably the first one any time this happens, that one's going togo to quit and all over, obviously in the losing team. That's why it'sprobably the only time it's going to happen this year, but obviously massthirty eight touches twenty seven of those were contestant. He had ninetackles for Nan clearances and three goals. It was one of the most dominantperformances of seen by a midfield e. ever he was unbelievable. Obviously,couldn't get still couldn't get the win for them. He did everything and more, but unfortunately, the pawer of theAdela crowd is just too strong. Bonton Pelly is number two for me.Obviously, isn't that hard when you're playing our Ravel, but twenty sixtouches six tackles to show that he's not just a ball and hand player, andthen four goals three could have easily kicked more, but yeah just tore usapart just show how he's come on to be an a grain pass player and basicallythe whole dogs team did so. Just really exposes that floor in US and numberthree is: Is Fellow to mate, Jack Mc Cray with forty one touches ninetackles and nine clearances. Those two just ran ramp in in the midfield. I know it's obviously pretty easy tocompetition our up against, but at the same time you know there. The reads in the marginwas what it was they were. They just killed us in every aspect in themidfield. We just couldn't get it off them and they were just simply too gooda simple as that there. Obviously, a lot of honorable mentions also what Ithought was pretty good for the cats told me to at forty or touches, but you know I stand at Tom Mitchelltouches and yeah there's a lot of o salt performes around to the grounds,but yeah I'll stick with those three is my top for the week yeah. I actually actually back yourcall about the Sydney G W S then coming down to ws injuries, because I feellike it's easy to play well, even with a few injuries for like three or fourweeks, but I feel like it's like seven, eight weeks down the road where theinjury start to take a toll but yeah yeah bond loved having in my supercoach team this week brought him in one of my best trades to talk about that ina little bit rookie of the week. Once again, Iactually do not even know who got the...

...rising star this week, so it was cardy.Oh yeah, that's good! That's good! All right did you. You say you roke theweek he's not my work, the WAK actually controversy. I've got some one brother man, someone by thename of Cale Polter, obviously in a losing team had twenty two touches.Seventeen of those were kicked so shows he's, got a lot of trust in himself touse his boot and coming and have a lot of trust, tap a ball in his hands.Obviously Keek that doll way in the game to bring the margin to one point,shut a lot of nerve in front of an m crowd and a really hard fold game andis playing on the wing for them. So, like I said, coinin show a lot of faithin this young man and it is awesome to see because he's got an incrediblemullet flowing and it just be a bit pointless if it was on a player thatjust got dropped after one or two weeks, so he's looking to be a very goodplayer for them, hoping in the future as well bit cock seems to just besecond better rookie every week, unfortunately, just missed out I'm getting it for methis week and in Cody waitman actually had it. Third, in one, the second goalyou got, I think, was a mass. I think it took a really good mark, but I thinkdougle Howard's gone up and just sort of touched him and cadis take a massivediving flop, and so he got to have a set shot in two meters. He out side isthe only raison. My Card is in there for me, because we were down by abouteighty points I think, but at the same time, bit of a flop, so I'm not going to havecare now. I've got those two ahead of him yeah I reckon it might have been abit of a like carry over from last week. I feel like they do that a lot like ifsomeone stiff for a couple weeks, then they just o yeah, exactly yeah, so yeahor confer caleotto Di Cock yeah, so he's probably got one comingsoon, yeah, hopefully, but read drafting time. We started to get backinto the Arco Two thousand and thirteen. I still do remember these rookies. Iwasn't in Melbun at the time, but I can remember when the bont was a young manand stuff like that. He kicked that goal over his shoulder was that hisdebut first year was gin, Melbourne and Eddy.Had Yeah Remembeh was a strange, looking bloke back then actually he'saged well, but yeah interested to see how far we get back, because I mighthave to pull the pin soon when I stop not now in these names, but I mightstart us off. I like starlings, I himself, because then you can come invoice of reason later then I might have a few mature ages. Inow rory lob was we mentioned that before and Ben Brown was, I'm not sureif there was any others. I think I saw one that was like a year before, but Ican't remember who it was. I don't think there was any obvious ones, knowyeah all right. So my honorable mentions this is a Il Sanarme. Beforewe came on it. I think this could be the hardest one we've done because well come petto. The last week's onethere's a lot more who have had established careers in the AL, and Ifeel like at this stage in their career, it's hard to balance potential and whatthey've done already, because yeah they're still only young but like someof them. I only have a couple of years left and stuff like that, so it's tough,tough juggle but o O mentions dom. She obviously premiership hero but hasn'tmade me has made my cart. Jack billings has always had pretty hard potential,but I think my top tens achieved a lot more than him in the game. So far, ZackJones I've loved that blow pretty much since he started, but yeah similar tobillings just hasn't done enough yet and then three guys who have beenreally good, either this year or last year, but ELELEU and Darcy Gardner. Maybe if went red did this in three orfour years they might work their way into the top ten, but yeah right now, probably not good enough to be in thetop ten, but number ten I've gone with Wood McDonald have a very soft spot forthis player. I think he's a bit underrated just because he plays for arubbish team, but it's been injured this year. I think he's played one gamefor all of about five minutes, but yeah it was the two thousand and twentynorth best and Ferris, which you may laugh at because, like you know whothey have, but still good at still a good effort to be a best in parish fromanywhere but yeah. I think he's a really high quality player, there'ssort of mixed around his role every now and then, like he's, had a bit of a gotag and he's had to go the wing half back flank but yeah. I think, he'sactually a pretty solid player. He had a bit of a form slump. I think it wasin two thousand and nineteen late, two thousand and eighteen, but either sideof that form. Some path thing he's been a pretty reliable player for north, andhopefully it comes back soon and starts adding some experience O that youngteam number nine pretty controversial guy, no one bit like Tom Mitchell. Nowknows what is true. Impact on the game is, but that Crouch a lot of talk abouthim, whether you leave Adelaide and stuff like that, his brother. ObviouslyI did last year, made the Australian...

...team in two thousand and seventeen,which I'll be honest. I did not know he did that but fair play to him he's oneof the best affairs at Adelaide being in the top five quite a few times yeah. It's just the reason he's so lowthat those achieve and sound pretty good. But the reason he's so low isjust I'm not sure about his impact and I'm not sure if he will progress anyhigh. I feel like he's basically showing us what he's going to give us for the rest of his career. Pretty muchnote a don't know if you'll have this bloke but Darcy Burn Jones was in theAustralian team last year, one ports best and fairs, so winning a best andfairest of a top through team, pretty impressive had a pretty slow start to his creed.You have to say there was a fair few years there, where he was kind of justmaking up the numbers in the Portean, but from two thousand and nineteenprobably half way through two thousand and nineteen has been one of the portsbest players, not that well known and quite a fewpeople were saying who was that block on Australian night last year, but he'spretty reliable players. So don't worry about that so yeah I've got him innumber. Eight number, seven I've gone with Tom Brass think he is one of themost underrated plays in the COMP. I'd have to say if he was at any other team,he'd be talked about as one of the best tall back been going round, becausewest coast have forty eight gun tall players is trying just kind offorgotten about and he's a villin. We govern shadow, but he was in the topfall for their best in Paris last year shot. So that shows how highly he'srated in a good team and yeah, I think, he's very vital cold to that Tan isHelas. We govern to be a bit more of an interceptor. Is he just lock down locksdown the big tall and yeah? I think he's a big reason why that defense hasbeen so good for a long time and obviously, we've talked about in thepast. Tall players are harder to find, even though this draft didn't actuallyoffer up too many, but number six. If you look onlystarted watching footy this year, probably be very confused, was innumber six, but I've gone a Christian Salem. I really like this guy. Actually, Ithink his way it has always been a very silky play, but this year he's gone toa level. Last year came seventh in the melonbest and Farris, but this year is coming about fifteenth in the coaches,boats, which I think's a better judge of a players ability than Brown lowvotes, whose you know yeah so expanse really, but brownly voting is a littlebit floored, but yeah so obviously rated very highly by the coaches to beup. There had a very good start of the year, as has a lot of his teammates,not sure how good he can become. We'll just have to wait to see the I justthen the top five have all done a lot more so far in their career, and that'sprobably like right now, he's probably good enough to maybe be second in myopinion, but just based on what he's done his career, I don't think he isachieved nearly as much as the top five a number five. This is controversial,but I'm worried about how he's going to go into the latter years of his career.With his we hearing all these reports at he's getting injections every weekand stuff like this he's already starting to show a little bit of adecline from his peak and it's Patrick crips. I think a lot of people would instantlywell before this year. Anyway. I think most people look at this draft class.Go Bot one crips two but yeah. I just don't know how long crips will play orhow long he'll be good for, because I think this year we've already we've already seen that he's notprobably the Patrick crips. We were used to seeing another four. I thinkthis guy is very good struggling to get on the park at the moment and hedoesn't actually have a time one on him this year. So I don't know if he'sgoing to play this year, but James Cicily, he came sick in the Hawthornbest and Ferris last year and he only played half the games for the seasonbefore he did. His stem floated around up forward, wasn't quite his scene, but like Darcy,more struggled early sent back and he turned out to be one of the bestintercepting defenders he was just so dominant the start oflast year and two thousand and nineteen as well. I think he was in my brown low votingthing. I did. I think he was actually winning before he did his a cl so yeah.I rate him very highly think he can be a very good player as long as he hegets on. The park I was going to have him probably a number two, but I justthink with his injuries and his limited like time and dominance. If you know Imean so fine as career, I think that's kept him down to four number. Three.I've got Josh Kelly highly rated player. I don't know how highly I rate inpersonally but two thousand and seventeen Australian as one of Ben. Ifat the giants probably last year, wasn't as good as we used to seeing inthe start of this year, he was playing out a position, but now it's been movedback to the guts. An he's been killing it the last few weeks and could arcollbe be a big reason. Why giants supine really well the moment but interestingto see what he does with his whole...

...contract Sinar that he's got going on.I think he has an option of another like six years or something ridiculous.His contract is so weird and it's basically all up to him so we'll seewhat he does but he's my number three number two I've got zacherie highlyrated player, one two s and best and ferris, two thousand and seventeenAustralian. Currently in the top ten for the coaches votes this year, a justyeah, don't really need to add. Much else could be on the move to cartonthis year. So we'll see about that. That's what broadly thinks anyway, butyeah everyone thinks is a gun. So I don't really need to add much more. Anumber one. Obviously Marcus Pontenelle, just off the top of the Dome you'd haveto say top five player in the competition, not like I'm don'tactually at a top five in my head, but yeah, I'm just free spit ball on there, but yeah threeAustralian appearances. Currently, second in the coaches votes, one threebest and Ferris. Just before we came on the air, I saw a article my face bookfeed saying: Is He the Best Western board dog ever and he's twenty five ortwenty six? So that, basically just says it all how highly he is rated o Yeah Bon got to be number one, allright so interested to you all list, because I was really I'm sure aboutmost of them probably past the top five I was happy with, but then below that Ilegit had no idea. So I'm interested hear what you say: Yeah All right, so mine's not tooshocking the different fins actually on a sil few honorable mentions I've gotunfortunately the Nank as just miss a I know, he's obviously a premiershipplayer and all that. But at the end of the day I think there's a lot of ritenin the competition that could have played his role. I don't it wasn't obviously like beston grounds in any of those games or any. It was a very, very, very good playerin since he's come to the Tigers, he was picked up, pick forty yard orsomething so very good trade from tigers that because obviously got theirpremiership rockmen. But I think the play is ahead of him are just a bitbetter. I've actually got MAC creation. The Honorable Mansions, I think his impact on the game isobviously very questionable and it's obviously the injury, Prie and themoment which I do tend to factor into these, because you don't want to picksomeone's very injury prone. So I've also got Germany and psin there zackgiants in their Aleria Clime on, like McDonald, etc, but coming in in anumber ten, I'm going to have Christian Salem, not as high as you given. This is the first year he'sreally showing that he is a very good player off that half back line. You know it is arguably one of the lessdifficult roles, I'll okay, I'll use that wording to play on the ground.However, you do need a very good kid to play that role and that's somethinghe's got and that's something that is very sort of undervalued in this sport.You need to be a very good player to have a very good kick and he's got thatat number. Eight sorry, a number nine Darcy Burn Jones- I do have them inhere. Obviously, very good play for PaulPretty under raised, obviously thin as a bit of a Maman his first few years. Imean he few poor player, so few port fans were too happy. I kept on gettinga game, but he has repaid the faith and he's obviously a very good player. Iadmit I was a little bit surprised to see him in that AU Australian team lastyear, but at the same time he's a very quali player and he did when they be anF, so scorto show that he is very highly tauted by them number eight I've got don shed. I knowyou had him I'Ma bit higher. You left me out, but obviously arguably eagles wouldn't havewon that flag without him he does get a lot of these twenty fiveplus possession games, which is what you want to see in your midfielders, and he is stepping up at a time where the likes of Gaff, shily andyell all injured and he's sho he's still making sure that this bid fieldis continuing on the way I should be, and yeah in my eyes is a very Solplayer. Since they drafted him, you know probably isn't going to getany higher than let's say ache. If I was to do this ina few ears time, however, I do thing is a very good player for them and he's avery important player to them and number seven, a man that doesn't getenough recognition. Darcy Guard enough. We always speak about these capsiconplayers, but yeah Darcy Gun is definitely out there. For me, I wasobviously it was a player that I wanted the saints to really get, butunfortunately we didn't we chose to. I won't use that word a pick eighteenand nineteen, but we got Darcy Gun, so they got Darcy Gurn and he's alwaysbeen a very tall player for them and when we talk about playing in theshadows of people and he's very much in the shadow of Harris Andrews, but he isa very good player for them and a very good lock down Ka defender. So I think they've been bitted. Wealways talked about how they'd be a lot of trouble. The lines if they didn'thave Harris Andrews, I think, obviously to a lesser extent, but it would be asimilar case if they lost haridas...

Gardner, which they have done.Obviously they got the win over the Tigers on the weekend, so it showedthat they do have color for him, but he is a very good player for them. Number.Six. I've got James Sicily, very, very good player awesome to watchon toast, watchful players in the competition. Obviously, unfortunately, just can't get him anyhigher, and this moment, unfortunately, they do play around with his role alittle bit, which is annoying because you should just play full time back,but the end of the day, very, very sole playing awesome to watch and numberfive Tommy Barras, obviously premier ship winning Ka Defender for the eaglesvery much in the show of joam McGovern and basically the rest oftheir list, but yeah. I struggle to see where they would havegotten that Kiafir that didn't draft him, because he's been extremely solidfor them and just the main stay in that defense, where a lot of decent players have comethrough. But the end of the day, not as good as Tom Brass, so I would haveliked to see how whether the results of devils in the past few years would havechanged. They didn't have him in the side because he is obviously the mainlock down defend out where we govern intercepts, but yeah he's going to be set up. Fivefor me and number four actually got SAC Americ. I don't have him part on thatbeing as I disposal can me it shaky, which is why I don't have him my headand he's not, I guess the toughest inside midfield. If we see he does playthe inside vide outside, but the other day he's a very, very good player forthe bombers. Obviously then Rainin file and the e talks of him being sort of scouted by other teams,because he is a very quality player, obviously got Austrain. I think in thesame year as Mat crouch on, I think they're on opposite wingsin that team. Correct me, if I'm wrong, but yeah number three, I'm Gon and I'm going to have Josh Kelly is a very, very spiry silky player forthe giants and lots of people who have sit douted how good he is- and I thinkthat's mostly due to the fact that he hasn't been playing full time mad whenhe plays full time made. He dominates or not dominates, but plays extremelywell. Every single time gets twenty N, thirty, really nice possessions and isbecoming a bit of a goal. Kicker now, which is what you want from your menfield, is, is exactly the type of player I want it to say. So I hope wego after him this year, but I don't think we will don't. We have the salarycap, unfortunately, which is ironic given how little elate players we havean on this, but anyway and number two are going to have Patcha crips, which well would have been just withoutquestion at the start of the year. At the moment, obviously, he adds very trouble by injuries and isn't theplayer he used to be. Sam Walsh is basically overtaking him now, but I think yeah look crips. He showedhow good he is. He shows his literal one of the best players in thecompetition when fit, and those tall mid fielders are extremely good, aswe've seen and it's become a real asset for clubs. This tolmides ever sinceBonton crips, were introduced into the A fl and fight. Obviously, so I think he really needs a pity needto an off season where he just focus on the body or it just needs a period oftime. I just focus on the body. You know if colon aren't fings chances, thelast three or four weeks of the year, just getting to sit it out, focus onthe body because they need him fit to really be a genuine chance at a making. A finals push because he's thatgood winfd for the moment he's just he's,obviously being thrown into every cent a bone every single week, gettingtagged, half of them getting bashed around and they really need to protecthim. Hopefully, for his sake, Sam Wall Starts Getting Bino attention becausehe ploddy needs to, and I think he did in the second half of the Carton Hawksgame, but yeah I've got to have crips at toobecause we know how good he is and he's still, you know, he's twenty fourtwenty five still has time to a just reach thoseheights again, given it's only. You know it's only taken half a year to ayear for him to sort of dip. So there's no reason why I can't take that sameamount of time or even less to get back up to those heights that they used tohit, but at number one is obviously an my marcus bond to Pelly God. I wish wedrafted this man. Unfortunately we didn't, and it is justso. He is one of the best players in the competition there's. No denyingthat he's just that, like I said, a realasset given he's a talmid fielder who kicks goals is a lovely piercing left,so pesin kick on him when he does, he is targets and yeah to twenty. His twenty five. Thirtytouches are a lot more valuable and many the most players. Twenty fivethirty touches in the competition and he's gonna come very, very close tobrownly this year. If not win it. So He's definitely gonna be my number one.I think that was the ome position in this red raft. I was comfortable withso I'm probably going to live at that.

I also forgot to mention Jack Keelingswas an o honorable mention, but yeah that's going to round out my freedraft to the thousand and thirteen yeah. I think it. I think I should havefacted in the premie ship from brass and sheet as well. As was that's a goodpoint from you. I think I don't think anyone else. I bonat approvest to meyeah, but yeah. I think that's about it. Unless, like Zack Jones, one lot atSydney or something a yeah, it's got to be thinkee. What a dog IT'S GOIN TO GAD!It's actually going to be interesting and watch these podcast back in likefive years, because, like ye there's people like Travis Burke, who, if youthought about that his draft class, I don't know four years ago, like youprobably wouldn't even being close to well, I don't know who else is in hisdrift, but you know what I mean, and now you probably right up there withone of the best like it's interesting to see, who kicks on late in theircareer or up taperin super go to chat, mate. Yeah. Look, I don't know like. I didn'tscore that great this week didn't have Oliver and had Anthony Scott and JamesJordan on the fee as a lot of people did, but that was probably a big reasonwhy I didn't score to a score like two hundred and forty. I think so. It got me a ranking rise which saysa lot about my ranking, but I said it last week I said I just wantedto one hundred and I got it so I can't complain. I be yea in a bit of a picklenow I've been running the numbers and I've basically worked out that I'mgoing to have to accept a fair few blokes as keepers that I probablywouldn't want to keep in an ideal situation, because once again I'll play the penny car theyhave cop to fair, aboute injury. So that's probably wasted three or fourtrains and they could have been keepers, and you know what I mean, but yeah.Everyone cops injuries and stuff like that. So I can't complain, but it has I'll get you to talk aboutyour week and then, after that I want you to talk about. has this news of Hawthought and goal post by change the thing for this week or upcoming weeksat all, or you just keeping the same strategy, all right, yeah I'll quickly touch inmy team God. I hate this booing medical subRall, because it's robbed me of at least about seventy yard. Eighty Yardpoints I obviously vsed all of our I thought happy days and then Tom Himerasname the medical sub. An I didn't have the balls to obviously Lo Pol Im,obviously didn't come on and in the same deal happen with Nathan. Murphy. Ijust didn't, have the balls. I was a lot more tempted because obviously itwas my last chance to get Ol over score, but I just couldn't. Obviously none ofthem came on, even though Colina had about three injuries in the firstquarter, but at the end of the year Jeez I so Ilot two three nine one which, at the end of the day, isn't a bad score, butin would have been a lot higher, still jumped about seven hundred rang so backinto rank two thousand four hundred and ninety. So the teams it's getting there. I've onlygot five players left on an upgrade and I've got Madian, I'm going to downgrade in a couple of weeks in a boy around will we have three trades. Itwon't be this week and it won't be next week, it'll be the week after we'll becoming to round thirteen and my be plan to really lauch myself in higher intothe ranks. Rin Leagues Down Grade Him, because I've got a hundred and forty Know in the bank down grading him to grab hopefully another two hundred andT K and I'll be upgrading two rookies on fields, probably the life of JamesJordan and Chad Warner to two primos. So that's no be very handyand gonna set my team up very nicely I'll have three up grades and eleventrades left. So I'm sort of hoping to get my team full premo with about sixor five. Maybe four trades left for injuries it first. Yes, it's going to be a bigfingers crossed every single week. Once I get full prime, I hope you dont gettinted, but yet, at the end of the day I had tostick with grandees captains who got a hundred and thirty eight so did hisbest, but obviously missed down allies. Two hundred four but yeah this newsabout Alfold Gold Coast. It's actually helped for my structure in that round.Twelve by I was I'm bringing in Lucky Whitfield this week. So don't tellanyone else that I'm doing early on him. Just given the fact a little bit ofvalue in at defence and I need someone who could be top six and he does suitthe byes. So yes, this this rescheduling has helped, because thisFord Line of Zablotin M P rounsell was looking a little bit.Skeptical Defense as well of Stewart, cosy andWhitfield, wasn't looking too great. So now I can take off because you sky, Ican take off NP. I obviously have to...

...take off Tom it. She well got cover ofhim. So in that round twelve buyers, I can put them all back on for my northplayers as much along players and jedges players and should be rough orthose two weeks so yeah. If any, it's definitely helpedmy situation, because it's sort of split up that into two weeks, thosegood guys that are going to miss you so yeah overall. I think it's actuallydefinitely helped me so, hopefully, in the future, the a fillies has one weekwhere every team has a buy. It's just so we don't have to consider itchanging our teams because of the fix during in super coach, but yeah the end.The Day Yeah Pursud, the cage teams are goingto write, I'm going to bring in pray, Whitfield and James Madden to net me ahundred and forty seven k. So I can do some killer up grades in a couple ofweeks, but yeah, that's my team. At the moment yeah. I think pilchers actuallyjoining you on the Whitfield he has been. He was going to trade him theweek as he came back. Ah think he riyeh. I think his rankingwas good at that point, something you went conservative, but now I thinkyou's dropped a few ranks and you starting to just send it but yeahinteresting pick up Hiris care order, rat it yeah at the moment. I'm juststuck between two mind sets. I don't know whether to accept more dodgy keepers at the end of theyear, talking like Hunter Clark and stuff and in the meantime, just get theelite premiums into or try and fill the squad with as many premiums, even ifthey're, not as good so like looking at you know, trading in blokes like who's an example like Tom lived, therotor or Ben Cunnington, who probably will be a solid premium midfield er,but they're not necessarily going to score anything like the cray orsomething like that. So I'm in between mind sets there. At the moment. I'mgoing is tempted to go the strategy of two cheaper premiums than just bringinglike one gun, because I've been going the Gunn strategy the last few weeks.I've got most of the guns now but yeah at the moment. As we stand, I'mtraining at brain and Campbell who I was kind of just keeping yeah, becausehe wasn't dropping for us and is a good for, and so I was just flinging themback and then I don't know when, but he popped on the injury list in his atlike six weeks. So that's kind of kicked me into gear, so I'm getting ridof him. I've got Brockman anyway as a mid forward. Swop Up. So I'm gettingready to him doing. Garrido Tom powl last week was holding out and he didn'tdo well so probably going to get rid of him as well before he drops too much sothinking it bringing in the hall, because I've been putting off the FordLine for ages, but I think now I've just got to get around it, especiallybecause they're a lot cheaper than premium did fees. So if this, ifthere's a week to do it, it's probably now when I don't mind the cheap optionand then I'm thinking of bringing in a someone like a Liber, because I, sincedunkles injury, he's actually been scoring really well and now traasinjured, so can't see how that wouldn't even increase his scoring even more so yeahhe's going to be my mega pot. If I do bring him in nothing his own bus, zeropoint, nine percent, so that'll be interesting. I think everyone will bewatching the dogs games watching Daniel Bond and mccray and I'll be sittingthere again around liar. So I viewing but yeah that's what I'm thinking aboutright now, but yeah. It also interested in side Bolt and if he comes back thisweek from his broken wrist, I think he's a test later on the week, so humanhall of my forward options and then yeah in the guts. Obviously I'd like togo a gun like a gut three or lions, but probably gonna, have to go a discountoption. But if I do change my mind, I would probably go like just candle to one of the guns and justdo one train, as I do have four hundred and forty C in the bank, not too keenon any of the rookies this week. To be honest, did have like a point scoring systemfor my rookies and if they crack a certain number, I get them in, but yeahthis week. None of them did. I began Malin and wait. Minute are probablypretty self explained tree, but they're, probably the two stand outs I do like,Madam, even though he has a very interesting ball drop, he pretty goodthat that angle, they show back ole gifted this Alingdon know how he dropped that on tohis foot correctly, but he got it done so I've done to him, but yeah I gotdumped by that medical sumthing as well. Thankfully, mine was an old of c. Itwas bond FC and I captain grant you sin that last so eighteen points but yeahadd three players, all cop sobs and, like I don't know what the chance ofthat high or Bergman and Murphy. I was just like yeah there's no chance tomean if you end burden both carpet, but hopefully all three of them, while twoof them lost and port had a disappointing performance. So hopefullythat means all three of them move into the side, thatbe pretty ideal for byrounds having as many players playing...

...as possible a but yeah, I'm actuallycame for the bar rounds. I think it's a good chance for me to jump up because,where I am in the Rankins, I think there's a lot of people who areprobably checked out now, so I'm hopefully get up to you know top for Co.Some get out of the debts the depths of super coach, but yeah anything else.You want to add on or join a head into the round. Eleven previous, no letsence heading surround eleven. I say very interesting: WAIT COMING UP ALLRIGHT! Willet you go! First, I've been talking a lot sure better the week backor are you looking at her? Well, I looked at the obviously I'vebeen looking at six car for a week or two and there's a lot like if you go onto do your footy ships just about every game, it's like sort of ninety percentof tick, this team and I'm Cento this thing. But I look at it again and Ireally don't see any short bets, which is a bit ironic when basically, everyteam is ninety percent chance to win. You know you look at the Tigers AgainstAdelaide we've seen what Adelaide just did they just knocked off to theunbeing team of the competition? Richmond is still be injury hit, so itis at the g tigers will probably turn it up. I'm one hundred cents sure onthat the cats I'm not even a hundred percent sure and then being collingwood.I feel as they're calling wood obviously improves a little bit againstthe port. They showed a lot more heart than I have done this whole year that yeah the same time. I still likewe've seen cats a early in the year. Sorry, I think hole form of primeexample. I'm going to use at the g haven't torn them apart and one of theway they probably should wanted to. Obviously it's changed since I gotJeremy Cameron, but I still can't get that out of my head, so I'm not evenbring that in as a short bed or the eagles over the bombers. I don't know I.I always fancy the bombs for an upset, but you never know. Obviously, Eaglesare pretty poor away from home. This is obviously o n be at home, but you neverknow that, because performance could transition, so I'm probably yeah, I'm probably goingto have to resort to pull our lad against Frio at our late over, which isironic give in port. Can we have the most disappointing win on the weekendso and Frio had primers got see when on the weekend, but saying that a port andI load oval? Surely they just turn it up? They get the crab behind him, as Iled to on the weekend and yeah just really trying to get a bit ofa percentage Bruce because I think they're forming against top igh tans areally poor, but they perform against bottom ten teams a lot better, so thatfactor in with the fact they're going to be at home. Obviously it's going toplay into their favor, so probably gonna lean towards port, as the shortbet in saying that I really don't have any shore beds this week, I'm going I'm not going to be surprisedwhen I see a tip three out of eight or eight this week, because yeah just not confident any ofthese bets at all yeah. I actually have gone for the ninefavorites this week. So I completely as what you're saying. Oh Yeah have notchanged that actually, but yeah. Your thought process was pretty much theexact thing that went through my brain about four hours ago so yeah I wrote out my eight yeah t wasnight at the time, but at now and rode out my eight margins and Yeah I've gotfour games of the margin, the thirty and yeah the three. You talked about notconfident a hundred percent on them, like probably in ninety five percent orninety percent, be aport, most likely for me to get the DUB. They just haveto win. Don't they like they can O in Frio is traveling pretty bad this yearand yeah just think port have to do it really and hopefully, Lucky Jones goesbig for my super coach team, but upset of the week. As I mentioned, I haven'ttipped an upset. The closest ones I was Howson to beat Gold Coast was one of myclosest ones, but I don't have to talk about that now, but I've Gone Carson tobeat Sydney like I'm, not strong on it. I'm tippingSydney by ten, but I just think can't love that far off Sydney really like a yeah just back everyone elsemore really. I think the other eight I think, the other seven winners, all thetop seven teams we've talked about in our top eight section. So yes, Sidneyis the weakest out of that bunch, and I can't see why I carton can't knock themoff at the Sug, but yeah not much logic to it really just think care o bad side.But what about you? I'm the exact same I've got blues over swans. I actuallymight tip the blues for the sake of variety this week,because I never end up tipping nine or eight, so there's always a couple ofscreaming over. So I may as well back the blues this week, like you said, there's no reason forthem to come out and knock over spans in front of their home crowd. Obviouslysaying well she'll run out and get thirty five, and I know how he'sobviously playing a bit injured, but...

...hopefully he's a bit more right thisweek. I will wait and see on that one. Hopefully, paddy crypts as well canmaybe hit is best. Obviously, with a bit more of the light shining on sayingWelsh may be. This is the chance for cryptal merge. So you never know I'mgoing to have the blues in is the upset but yeah looking at all the Games. Ican really see a lot of opset happening. I could see north toppling US honestly.I could see honestly, I could see giants getting over Brisbane. I couldsee basically every other team is not favorite winning but, as like you saidmost like these are all basically top eight teams beating the bottom ten so yeah for that matter, maybe not, but atthe end of the day you know you never end up tipping the idea, so there'sdefinitely going to be a couple that go the other way. So I Rican bluesdefinitely were well within a shout against the swans. I think that's the fact that we've both chosen at asthe upsots, probably pretty representative of hopefully what'sgoing to happen, yeah. I think this could go one or two ways. His rondic bethe really really boring and the eight fas get up or like we could have eightthrillers on our hands yeah, which would be exciting. Hopefully it's so atthrills, with the crowds. I'd be a bit of a shame, but sure everyone will beloving it at home will for the Melburn Games. Anyway, all right games spreadonce again. Wasn't too keen on many of these. I've got to down that. I likefor the betting lines. I've got the dogs handicapped by six and a half points.I've got the beating Melbourne by about twenty just think. Last week youcompare the teens. I know at the moment Adelaide in Adelaide's a hard task andsay killed a but the discrepancy. There was pretty large one ten one by ahundred and ten one team lost so yeah. I can't see why the dogs can't come outand beat Melburn not convincingly, but by more than seven points and then t wstheir their head start as twenty seven and a half against Brisbon I've gotbrisben winning by fifteen. At the moment I could see them coming out andpumping them, but, as we've talked about a lot could see them not giants,I feel like they don't get blown out there, but really they seem to everygame there, ins, pretty close. So it's always like fifteen to twenty pointmargin. So yeah with a head state of twenty seven and a half, I think thereare sold chance there to cover that line any any. You like a couple, a likeNorth plus twenty seven point: Five against us. To be honest, I last few weeks we've seen northkicked over ten girls, or at least gotten over sixty five point in everygame. So I don't like our scoring power at the moment, especially in the factthat we are are very inaccurate in front of sticks, and I can definitelysee North Turny and in at marvel like, if, obviously, the crowd isn't probablygoing to be there, as I forgot to mention actually when I was talkingabout the show beds of the week and the fact that Portalis can be in front oftheir own crown, but yeah obviously probably not going to bea crowd far. If things go the way that he we think they will, but I stillthink north. They bade us with no crown last seasonsand I could definitely set in game within twenty seven point: Five withoutone, I think they have obviously a littlebit of what I've said. I hid a little before Igot pumped by US and them, but they have hit a little bit of scoringpower the last few weeks they be getting. You know if they, even if theyget smashed they're, still kicking sixty. Seventy eighty points so definitely set in getting within twentyseven and a half the blues as well, plus fifteen and a half, if I'm goingto back them amaze, if I'm not going to back to may well back that line. So Idon't mind that one at all the swans don't have the greatest ability to blowout teams. I I think that's obviously changed a little bit this year, but atthe same time we can still see carton getting within fifteen and a half ifthey are to lose. So those two yeah, like you, said, there's not too many tolike this week. I don't like any of the winning spread, because every time Ihae every time I back a team to thump another team, the spread still as like,and I back the line it doesn't get up. You know on it's on, like a medio, canfive go win so yeah I'm going to back. Those two is time and sort of hope thatthere's a few underdog or thrillers this week, because that's going tohopefully aid.
