ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Rowey joins Mish in a barnstorming episode of the On The Ball podcast as they leave no stones uncovered in this weeks AFL episode. The boys not only recap Round 17 and preview Round 18, they also provide some outlooks on the future of Richmond, West Coast and Port Adelaide and highlight some of the best kept secrets around the AFL state leagues. 

Welcome back to the other wall podcast,this is another episode of one of the best potties going around, and we areonce again here with roy how you may i'm all right mate. I'm a right bid,shouted about the covin news that a sort of evolved yesterday regardingvitoria but still hanging in there. How about yourself, yeah pretty similar abit been nervous this morning, as we have been for the last like eighteenmonths, any time there's a bit of an outbreak it's scary times, especiallyin victoria, but we'll try and stir clear of the coved talk for now,because that seems to be all that everyone's talking about these days,but a bit of than another af episode as you've come to expect without pilktoday so shut out to pilch. If he is watching or listening, we've got somenew interesting topics to chat about today, but before we get into thatwe're going to do our standard winners and losers from around seventeen prettyinteresting round. Actually i know you and me both had stinkers in the tippingpilch. Almost freaking went the perfect night, but i don't think many were withthem there to be honest, but yeah, who were the biggest winners for you? Well, first, one was kickoff, actuallyperfect were to kick it off. Is the first game in the round, so melbourneover port and adelaine over lo was going to be. It was dubbed as one ofthe best match of the year so far by. I think, as and also everyone else, everyother foot fan and it didn't fail to disappoint up until melbourne sort oftook control of it so yeah. It was obviously another gamewhere melbun just proved to the afr will that they are worthy, and they arethis good. You know to go over and beat port you a lad is obviously a reallytough task. I know they've had their problems this year with you know, beingtop eight teams and once again, that's that's, causing some worrying signs formen going into september, but yeah, it's just on the back of a hugeperformance by christian bachak, the biggest guy, to get away from thesaints. Unfortunately, so thirty three touches eight mark. Six tackles andthree goals: that is just the definition of domination, so he justcompletely tore apart and then just the contributions from like tom mc donald,who are nineteen and three goals, huge contribution from a like a tall playerlike him, not quite a shore position, ers plan, i didn't actually manage tocatch the game, but oliver as well in the middle as well as sam of half backwere huge and so yeah. It was just another great game for me, win to proveto the competition they are worthy and they're. Not. You know the melbournethat we all kind of know him a few years ago. They have changed the holeof old. I think just about everyone is believing that now i'm not really i'mnot really jumping on the band wagon saying they're going to be settingthemselves up for straight sets because they are actually discord so anotherhuge wind for them. Obviously, the sites you and i were both out at atwenty first at night, but managed to m. I was obviously keeping an one on thescores and the group chats of my fellow saints fans, and they were saying howwell we're playing the best we've played all year and just you know,playing with confidence and speed. You know: we've obviously switched themagnets over a few over the past few games and it'sclearly helped and obviously a bat. The lines who i think, we've done a fewtimes in this potty, to be probably one of the best teams in the cob andfinishing on top by over five goals, was an absolute wassorry, a money, mental effort and i sort of revived our seas and giving usa slight chance of finals now, which is pretty exciting going into this weekend,port, who obviously suffered that loss against the days. So now the huge windfor the saints, the sinni swans as well to beat the dogs at marvel. Soobviously the dogs are powerhouse at the moment, especially at marble, sofor the swans to just keep on getting these big winds against big teams ashuge for them. Considering i still obvious on paper, i still don't thinktheir list is, you know a lid, but obviously on grass they're, absolutelyunbelievable. They play with. I haven't seen the team play with such aconfidence this year. You know able to tend these sort of mid grade playersinto really service or ball players every week, so yeah and once again, areally good win for those boys and once again be just like. I said about melwinproving they are. The real deal can cause some upsets, or at least just youknow, causing damage and finals. You know they're, probably as good a shotas anyone else at the moment, because they're playing that well and the piesas well over richmond hugin for them and their confidence with rower harbortaken over and like saints, switching over the magnets to go in the midfields, obviously proving well, but the biggest winner out of everything isnorth melbourne hum to go over and beat west coast, i'm sure we'll touch onwest coast in a second but just yeah in terms of prosing theirconfidence. You know e going over and...

...beating wa team n w a is one of thetoughest feats in the game, especially when it's west coast and it's justshowing he's not all doom and gloom for north fens, and i think the seasonshonestly probably gone better than expected. If you've now a lot. Thefirst few weeks jane stevenson's an absolute animal in that midfield, hemay only be slight, but he's proved him to be a great pick up. I know it wasobviously kicked out of the door, but it was credit an or for jumping on him,and just the likes of you know, zeblun whale off that heart back just continueto put in really impressive performances in every week. Cunningtonin that mid film, with you know, ld and taran, thomas all stepping up is beenhuge and gold stain as well signing off his career and fashion kicking thatlate goal was absolutely awesome for the rose it was. It was a win for theal this week. I think i think that's a great way to summon up you know:richmond lost west coast lost to probably the most hated tames of thecamp and north got up and just a great war kind of footy. Reallywhat about how? But how did you sorry, i've just completely forgotten how tospeak. How did you find a weekend yeah pretty much had all those teams in mywinners, yeah i'll, tell you what i don't know if they really do this in al,but they do it in nfl before the season starts, each team has like a overunders in the winds number. I tell you what i reckon north have gone over inthe last like eight years. Every time they come into a season, no one'sexpecting much, and then they always just produce a little bit more thanwe're hoping but yeah. While on to north. That's pretty impressive yeahcollingwood like i know they have had the whole buckley sacking and all thatstuff, but the last six weeks has actually been pretty impressive, soyeah and i was looking at the vl ladder before there, vil teams coming likesick out of like eighteen. So it's actually not all dooming bloom forcollingwood, a the so sort jump in no. I started jumping quickly, but i reallydon't think thar they're not really that bad at all. Like you look at thatleast, and it's full of like it's a on paper, it's a final quality list. So i'm honest, i'm not surprised thatthey've had a really good part this month and a half so yeah. It's wanted to throw that inthere, but yeah that, like i'm looking at the starts in the week end now it'sabout eight or so plays over a hundred rancon points which is huge,considering our two players in their over un and forty. So the list.Obviously i think i've always rated their list and it's obviously justbeing a bit on field, especially forward line for them. But i've alwaysyou know at least been. I haven't hated them as much as everyone else has interms of their performances. I've always sort of like kind of now, so ihave always write it at least and obviously hasn't delivered this year,but i still think there's a lot of quallity on there, so yeah has want tothrow at in there but yeah anyway. Yeah. If you look at thelake like, if you look at each team's, like top eight top ten players, thereprobably up there with the best their death is questionable, but they're allyoung, so jeneen. If their tirl teams doing well, you can't really questiontheir death and to be fat. You actually are right. We are for getting a lastudan. They beat west coast in perth and yeah the first one on so yeah they're,not actually that even were in a grand final like three years ago. The otherteam i would to mention was frio. I know they should be teams like hallform, but we've come to not trust them really over the last six or eight weeks.I remember the line only being like two points in their favor and all three ofus on last week's potty were very unsure which way to go, but they handedhalf on the sausage so well than to cleo they're after seventh. Now, whichis i'm trying to spicy because, like you wouldn't have said that last likethey started the season well and then in the last few months, as may beingquestionable but they're in seven. So i can't really complain with that. I bemoving into the losers. I just want to touch on a few things. First of all,the goal kicking on the weekend, riggatter seen i'm just going to readout some of the school lines, so we had siden eleven girls, eighteen out oflaid two goals: nine or four and six gulls ten carton, five goals, fourteenwhich i believe was two goals. Twelve at one point, the do brisbane also wenteight goals: fifteen so yeah, i'm not only a third of the competition, so inthe sixteens had a positive goal to behind ratio so yeah, i m not sure.What's going on this year and the fl, i don't know if it's set shots or maybe there's more pressure than normalyears or something like that around the ground, but there's something that allthe teams need to address because pretty much all those teams i just readout lost except for sen. I think so yeah con could have easily upset alongto be honest. If they kick straight, they had enough scoring opportunitiesand yeah. That's something! I don't think enough. Coaches, a dress, i don'tour footy like we, never practice goal kicking. So i don't know if they dothat at the big levels, but yeah fuck, it's an overlooked. I aspect of thegame. Gus is a loser for me, i'll,...

...probably save the big dogs for you andrichmond and west coast, but gwes did watch that game. One of the few games iwatched in full but yeah. I thought that i really let one slip throughtheir fingers. To be honest, i didn't think gocos played that. Well, i i tookout of another really really good game, but i thought, apart from the secondquarter, where golgos took a bit of charge with the wind, i thought theywere there for the taking and g ws didn't really stand up and do it wouldhave been a really good opportunity. They would have gone clear and seventhso there because of that draw with. I think it was north of melbourne. Theyare like sort of there and you know i don't know how to explain it. They'relike two points off everyone else, so if they won that they would have gonetwo points clear, but now they sit two points behind a pack of like three orfour teams and yeah. I just think, if they're going to make finals well forany team to back finals, whoever comes seventh or eight they're going to bethe teams that snap up these fifty fifty games like this, i thought thatwas a huge missed opportunity. Even in the last five minutes. I think theycould have handled things a bit better, but yeah, though that was prettydisappointing from js, because yeah i didn't really think alcos were thatimpressive i've, but well done to them for getting another way. I know pilchtip that one, but i'll leave the big losers of the week to you. What did you make the west coast lastmight well. I was on west coast for one of my beds,but then i was just all north melbourne t just because we obviously wanted tosay north win. I don't know just i an i've heard. Afew people talked about how west coast play styles outdated. You know, there'snot a whole heap of pressure that they rely on it's more sort of the build up.The ball use. You know moving from half back to harford, not overly quickly it just, but that just wasn't the play.Obviously this way you know, i think north managed the wet conditions a lotbetter than west coast. That's one thing: i did notice watching this gameand there a lot of times when north wall a you know. There were obviouslyin a bit of a contested sort of you know a bit of a wearing situationjust in the wet, but then there able to get themselves out of it really nicelywith a couple of kicks and arboles, but the way west coast handle it justwasn't as good. You know, they'd rely too much us on the bomb down the lineor then try- and you know that so they didn't use it as cleanly so around theball. I think north were just better in terms of their ball use and just howthey structure their play. So yeah, it's obviously worrin as therewas a lot of there, was obviously going to be a lot of pression that game interms of around the contest because of the wet conditions but yeah north justhandle the better didn't suit west coast at all, but you've got to be averse time. The fl consuming we're playing any condition so yeah. I thinkwest coast just obviously aren't really playing a lot of confidence to themoment and there's a lot of sort of under performance at the moment, and ithink it's a bit of a sorry it's a bit given to the fact that the list is sortof aging. Now i think i touched in that earlier in the year that the listers aging i sort ofpredicted that down fall. So you know obviously kennedy and darling darling didn't have any impactwhatsoever hard to as a tall in those conditions, but in saying that you'vegot to have some form of impact on the game. Kennedy il di two or three couldhave been a bit better, but we can see those guys coming to the end of theircareer and then a knows just a few sort of players that i'm sure i just goingto be used as a scapegoat this week and get dropped. You know the likes of likea nelson langdon, patrice y tom coal. These guys, that are just always in andout of the team, i'm just i assume they're just going to all get the chopand not a lot of responsibilities. Get me taken those blokes that maybe couldbe on the so all should be on the outer that are usually regulars, but we'll wait and see what happenstonight with the teams. That will be interesting. Another big los of thisweek i was pole out o lad. Obviously just just can't play top a good qualityteams and i'm going to really interested to see what happens in thefinals and how they cover that, because if it's straight sets, then obviouslythis whole thing is true. But what is true but like he obviously is a hugeworry going into the next few years, because they're obviously going to bearound the permis window for a while. But if they can't get these winds, thenit's a huge problem for them going ahead. So another big loser as well ascalton just another missed opportunity, obviously goal kin, let them down, butthey're, just they've just been stagnated for a long time. Now. Theblues, we just say the same thing everywhere: avro have we every week,really god i really just woke car. That's probably why i speak amintor andthen richmond was obviously another huge alser on the weekend. I think the i'm still not writing themout. I still think their chance to make finals. I think they're one. You know if thereone more o, you know upset away from missing over me. So i see if they losetomorrow night. That's hugely detrimental, but you know that meansthey've just got to win the next week...

...all the week after so look if theywouldn't they lose the next two weeks on, i think they're going to be out,but i haven't winning one is still not riding them off yet, but yeah. It wasodd in that last they obviously had control the game up until that sort ofup until at least three quarter time released halfway through the thirdquarter when they are up by five goals and then for the rest of the game.Richmond kid one goal in the pies: kick you know, sort of eight or somethinglike that. So in the last quarter is just one of those matches where richmanjust didn't look like scoring it's when the opposition just completely takescontrol, it's like when you're playing vio game and you set the difficulty uplike four levels mid way through the game. It just completely shifted andthe chances that richmond did get they. Just i don't know they look sloppy.They looked lazy, they looked fumbly. I specifically recall one moment i thinkwas in the last quarter when i can't quite remember who it was bluelit. So i deliver it to reward, is about fifty hour, and you know rewortsort of lumbers expecting to take this every day. The week and may night hasabsolutely no right to spoil it, but just dives in a spalls and ray well. Ithink it was just a bit lazy from him just expecting no contact just thinkingabout what to do next relate just the set shot like you've got to be focusingon taking the mark and just putting responsibilty n on yourself thereothing. I was really that sort of sumthin up really for me, but yeah. That's all the loses for me.You touched on judo as well there, so i'm not going to check the dogs inthere or brisben in there. Quite yet, obviously i think brisbin, maybe fromwatching the hearts and hearing the game, were maybe a little bit slowcompared to how the saints play with their pace and the dogs well lookthey're still at the top of the ladder so and they lost to a team in sydneywho's. You know poy one of the most informed teams in the company themoment but yeah at same time. No us keeping onthe move of the next few weeks see what happens with them. Yeah hundred percent and gray out ityeah. I don't think we can go too hard on those teams. Losing just seems likea bit of a blip, alright top eight time. I've actually done mine this week forthe first time and like might be this whole season, but yes, idid the predict of this morning so that you know that's always a bitdodgy, because you don't. I don't do the margin or anything but we'll seehow it goes. So. I've got the dogs coming at first. I don't know why i amhard on the demons like they've shown enough to win the minor premiership,but i still like the dogs that i've got the cats in its second lines. Thirddemons forth, but that's all very close that top for then i got the power andit fit the swans in its sixth, although who knows how high they could get ifthey kep playing this way and then the all important positions- a favoritasbiggest fan this year of stock by them. But this is actually the week grandpathe pin, i'm jumping off. I've got the eagles in it. Seven and i've got thebaby bombers coming into eighth, a pretty surprising, but i've got thebombers finishing above richmond and freemantle on percentage who justiceout in ninth and tenth position, so yeah controversial for me, and i can'timagine the esenen faithful how rowdy they would get if they did to tag thatfinal position, but i'm willing to bet against richmond now and i'm sure willjinx it. But i'm okay with that. I'm willing to accept it's probably goingto happen, but yeah who've, you got in your top a er. Well, this is sort of i'm sort of likeone week. You and i one week separate. So i this is the way greive finallyborn into the fact. I think melbourne is probably the best team in thecompany and i've got him in at top. I don't think they're going to move fromthe top meal. I've got the dogs in it second, the lines in it third and the jalon init. Fourth, i think it's been my top o my top forest consisted of those teamsfor quite a while. Now i don't think that's going to change. I've now got toswan's late, frogging port. I think their fixes a bit easier and i thinkporta gan is susceptible to a few of these close losses. I'm really intre tosee what happens in port science this week. You know whether it's a completewalk over or whether we really bring it to homes can be interesting, so i'vegot pollinate six and then these two yeah look is so a bit of funny. I'vegot i've actually got the dons in atseventh. I've got them jumping up, not eight, but seventh they've got. I think they really goingto bring the heat in these last few weeks. No one's really talked aboutthem much. They have got the best percentage out of all teams, seven andseventh and below so that is a factor as we've seen it basically every yearwhen it comes to files, or at least the playing for finals- and they do have avery venable fixture, so it starts off with north this week.I then goes into gs at war, at least at this stage amarvel, but we all know that that's a...

...very winnable game, the swans, a marvel which i expect themto bring it to them. I don't i'm not ringing the bombers outof that one they had to do then have the dogs, which will obviously be tough,but i still think they're the type of tan title brand to them, but then thelast two weeks of goal coast and collingwood. So if you've got thewinning those two games, maybe one of those to upset to them. You knowgetting the job done over north belbin, so winning one of those other two gamesand then getting a job down. Er north belbin, i think, there's a seriouschance of making finals and then at eight i'm still just cling on to thetigers. I just don't think i it still think they're good enough to miss but,like i said, i'm probably one week away from pulling the pin just because what we've seen inprevious years, they're still in the same amount of points as the bombersand i've got them in at seventh. So there's still every chance there, onlyone wind behind seven. So i just look like sorry like estan. I think they're goingto really turn it up and they can't of have to i've actually tipped themtomorrow, night against the brisband, which is obviously a pretty red call.But i think this will probably be the weekend where they, where they switchit up. Obviously bris been lost against thesaints, and you know whether it is a blip or not. Will wait in the sea andwhether the last few weeks of richmond or blicket and say, but tomorrow, i'mreally fascinated see what happens to. I can't wait for that one, but at themoment i've just got rich men in on eight. I can't put myself to put sankir in there, yet i think giants have a few close ones and we've seen whathappens in with the giants and close ones. I don't you know, i think theydisappoint more than they succeed and frios fix is pretty tough, as is westcoast from here, and i don't like west coast. I don't like what i saw on theweekend and i just i don't really like, where they're going, i'm not going toput them in the eight and yeah. That's that, and, like i said ilike fares, fix, is too difficult for him, so yeah first time i think my top eightin terms of the teams has changed in a long time, but i'm glad it has because you know itconsists in top a all the way through to the end of the season is very boring.Yeah. It's pretty funny that, like it was not even long ago, maybe round ten,where we were like confident we had the top at like locked in and we cost well bay,that of right yeah. That is true, but it's definitely going to be a lottighter than what we first thought so yeah. I pull the pin on rich room, butyeah watch them come on bit brizzi and all of a sudden there back inpremiership contention, but i've sort of left you up to your own devices inthis segment. So i've had this in the in the locker. For a few weeks now i'vebeen thinking of like a best twenty two out of players who aren't in theirclubs best twenty two. But then i thought twenty two is actually way toomany ants wouldn't be the most interesting segment, so i've left it upto you. I said you can do five ten, however many want. So i'm interested tohear because me and re kenles er of the party. We always discuss like not surewhy teams don't go and get these players when they seem to always favorthe draft. When i think some of these players are just as good, if not better,but interested to hear who you think the best players who aren't makingtheir clubs best twenty two week and week out all right, so it's obviously adifficult definition. You know not in the best twenty two that could be aplay. That's you know, played sort of eight or ten games this year i could beovous plays that have paid bellin i've sort of gone because it's too difficultto really measure the sort of one that of play. Noteabove sort of sever eight games, i've sort of gone with guys that have onlyplayed a few, but there's still obviously quality players and all ofthem have been invest twenty two in the past and still are capable of it. So i'm going to sort of stick to thatextremity of the question, but number one it was this, isn't in any order, soi've just got a few days. I got to take off the first one, which has been talked about for a long time. This yearis mettals from the dogs. I'm pretty he's always been fit. He's been playingvfl in the last couple of years, he's been almost the dogs main forward aslike a medium forward who usually takes the best offender, can let sort ofaeronaut and grow and develop against the tolls, but this year he's barelyfound his way into the team, and i think when he did lay of other lastweek or a week or two ago he came on as a sabati think kick two or three goals,so he shows he still got it. I think it was against north moban, if i'm notmistaken, but yeah. I think i like three lastquarter goals, one i'm coming on so or at least starting. Actually, i thinkyou might have start in the game, but yeah he shows his still god. He stillgot that goal. Scoring ability obviously used to be sort of a kind ofmidfielder until he had an awful break...

...in his leg. But yeah he's he's aninteresting one. Obviously he's probably linked to the dog success.They've always got a lot of stars in this team and have gone down the moretraditional approach of playing two out an now tolls fia couple of smallsrubbin wallas who's, like a of you, know, he's sort of a stay at home. Youknow not a tall but not small type of forward, but still gets the job done,and it's very good one on one, but ye ony he's one that has always been infit this year and just hasn't been able to find a way into that team. I mean.Obviously rival clubs are going to be looking at in this of season and mightbe best great parties to see where he ends up another one is obviously to beinclosure. This year, been brown to the days obviously had had so many still yearswith north melbourne as a laid up forward and he's come to this belan tamand other can't kid goals a can't get into the team, so he did have probably his best game forthe season so far on the weekend. Ironically, didn't actually kick any,but you know i had ten touches and four marks sort of shows how he's been goingthis year, obviously not promising for em and it'sinteresting to see how they go to try and fit him into this team were to keepto spot this weekend or not well, wait and see on the teams tonight. I imaginehe will but yeah it's an interesting one am because he is that more sort oflaid up forward. Rather that sit it on his head forward, and so i'm not a hundred percent sure howthe days are going to incorporate that in the wake of coming, whether he's inthat best, twenty two, but if not by the end of the season you know it'llcould be the biggest move in the off season where a players sticks were atempo one year after someone and before your deal and then you know it's bestof proprie, let him go, but we wait and see there. Another one is tom rocklet,so i know is injured, but i think at the start of the year he was stilloverlooked anyway by william true and maybe others, but he does sort of have ery injury underthe side of the moment, but it was saying that i still don't think i thinkhe's on the fringe of the ports best. Twenty two, which is you know, he'sbeen a very quality player, especially you know in terms of fantasy and supercoach in his career ham, so he's obviously able to walk in and justchalk up thirty years but yeah. Unfortunately, when fit, it's still nocertainty to get into that port liner, so he's another one that could belooked at in the offseason someone to just throw into a midfield, maybe likea richmond. We've obviously seen how they've suffered a bit and they bid filled thisyear when they cop a few injuries. So maybe someone is a back up, but someonemore likely to play is back up would be handy for them, especiallyconsen lacks of cotton and stuff near the end of their careers. Capen more. These guys are bit onactually now i've got raised conquer here as well on the list who obviouslymade the way over from richmond. So, like i said these guys in you aren'treally playing it's not like they're playing sor severi games a year he's one that and he's played a coupleof weeks, but just i think i'll heard the other nightthat he's got a trigger in his contract, where you know he'll trigger anothercouple of years, but maybe for that reason, frere aren't playing himbecause they may be here, maybe hasn't delivered like they'd wanted to and afew plays of overtaking him, and they may be one an excuse to get him off thelist or something like that, i'm not sure, but he's another quality playerthat probably would fit into that free bout. Twenty two, but at the moment no, it's all that's gone against him ever since making that move career sgot a bit down hill and then a couple of other younger boys, charlyconstables, obviously a huge one for jalon. You know soon to rake up thirtyand forty every week still can't get a game for the cats. Obviously, breakininto that mid field is hard, especially when you're a pretty one dimensionallike charlie, is but in saying that he's a very qualityplayer- and you know when he comes into the a fl he still gets twenty plus, soi'm sure he'll be very handy at any other club. So we'll see what happens,this off season he's obviously been talked about a lot, as has the likes ofyou, know, jordan, clark quit narking all there. A couple of others, jakericardi from g ws, obviously burst on to the scene. Last year, kicked eightin like three games and then sort of went missing. I mean you got copped aslight injury or got dropped arrested. I remember i brought him into the worstway. Consid cater as tortue my season, and then this year hasn't really foundhis feet. They be playing off half back a bit in the in the tours, but herecords ridiculous starts just about every week in the two, so i'm surehe'll be looked at as well. In as i'll season, i touched upon it a couple ofepisodes ago, an i did my soul episode and i think four or five times i prowup his name for different clubs to have a crack at him because he's obviously acall of a youngster and could do some damage, we've, sayn or potentiallycould have matt kennedy is one for calton who'sjust made his way into the side and has been playing the last few weeks, andyou know every single time players. You always see the blues fans say just keepme and keeping me and he's a tough body...

...around the contest. He tips in, formaybe a goal or two, but you know he's always laying tackles he's alwaysgetting sort of twenty plus or fifteen plus, but yeah he's just one that he's justone of the carton favorites down there and rarely get games weirdly. You know,sometimes you an injury but sometimes just tudo carter not being able to fithim in he's a bit. You know one dimensional like a few of these players,but in saying that he's still a quality player, he was a. I think it was pick.It was a top fifteen pick in his draft year. So obviously has that potential. Sohe's probably one of that's probably play the most games or these guys thisyear, but obviously should have been playingjust about every way for colson and we've seen how they've gone this yearand how, in that midfield it's a bit too reliant on sort of walsh and cryptsand half time. Cript is absolutely gas in there. So that's another one for thelister and just the last one to throw in there is one. That's had a bit ofhype in his career at times, but hasn't really, you know, delivered and hasbeen dropped a few times which is surprising, given the team he's playingfor, but is darting everson from gold coast and he's been yeah. It's always abit of a row call but he's been in and out of that team. But you know you showhim potential to you know, have twenty fiveand thirty and maybe kick a goal or two. It's mostly come from sort of preseasongames, but look if you could do it, then then you should be able to do itin the real time so yeah, whether it's, whether it's as a small for war, is ahalf arter just in out in that mid field, i'm not too sure, but he's onethat probably you know you probably shouldbe playing, but you know you still a sort of in and out of that team,whether another team goes from this off seas and tries to unload, unleashesfull potential weight and see but yeah those are sort of just eight playersthat they haven't really been in and out they've more just sort of been out,maybe chipped in for a couple of games to this this off season. Otherwise youknow probably looking at like two thousand and thirty forty fifty plugs,if you're, if you're going down the track of you know picking guys that arein this list, that of you know play maybe half the games of the year. Sothose are just at that or i can you can get for cheap as chips this off season.If you want to- maybe not you know, light have been brown or just joinedthat club, but yes, ones that probably still have alot of foot left in them released a bit a lot of contribution e to them for theyears to come. So yeah interesting little sement that tolook at the names that could be gettable this off season, or at leastshould be playing in their teams but yeah i'll. Just trying to thinkabout. If any could improve the saints team, but we ill less. You moved on to the nextegent yeah. I've got a couple just to mention my the ones i wrote down, asyou mentioned more the in and out sort of type, so they're a bit more likewell known names. I guess, but were saying in the last couple weeks: lukeydunston for the sanis radomes coach, but he's sort of been able to find thefoot in most of his career. But i'm pretty sure he's got a reputation ofbeing a shocking muser. But you need to be doing pretty well in this last in inthe side and looks to have nay or down a spot in the best twenty two, a d nickhuman, especially this comes into question after the boys off season,where they brought in two half backs he's someone i've always really ratedback this time in sydney he's just a very creative player and yeah. Iremember when me: mama, went and watched car one day and he kicks likefour goals or something and they were losing and he was on in the half backlike. But the is very good kick thought. John segle road call that i thoughtthere's a lot of teams out there who could use a rock man hawton tend to bepretty load in that department. So you know to long on something one: a readymade rockman. He could be an option for a team like that at james ro bottom. He has recentlybeen dropped a couple times from the swannes team. Some of the younger kidsseem to have overtaken him, but i feel, like he's still very young player, witha lot of potential. So a ten could take him off the son's hands, alt witheredand he's someone who, if we look at skill versus games likehe would be right up, there has not played many games for the amount ofability is got west coast sort of sin em, as maybe, to replace shannon hernin the long term, because the only thing his first game was pretty muchthe week shoon ho and got injured so, but he's only paid like six gamessomething this year, but he's been pretty good when he's played. Thinklucky ash is someone who he was a hard draft pick and i think he's some with alot of talent being in and out of the gs side as most of their team asbecause laon cameron is a strange man. But i think he's very talented- andthis got some this guy a throw back this next one. But it was a bit of asuper coach gun as a rookie. Well, maybe not a gun, but it was a lot ofpeople had him, but james cousins. He actually dominates in the box. Hill vflteam is like their main inside mid.

Patrick lipinski is, i don't know ifanyone listens to it, but the al exchange podcast, they absolutely froth,patrick lipins. He so here's someone the teams, could have a look out. To behonest, the whole dogs, vfl team should be out of the microscope. They've gotabout five or six blokes, and the ed richards only has just come into theteam. The last few weeks and i toby mclean's running around and the stufftom grain- probably his best twenty two, but he hasn't he's been dropped twicehis year. So he's someone else, josh robin of the west coast eagles, isbasically the best twenty two now, but is mainly being given opportunitieswhen tegoe and brass are injured, but he's a very, very good tall offender.Don't know how west coast to it, but at both ends of the field. They seem to bevery good at producing tools and, as you mentioned after long they've got afew and i think quinton narker, along with charlie constable, both should belooked at. There's yeah. I just think it's something overlooked in forty attimes. Everyone gets very obsessed to the draft and i know you probablyprefer being interested in draft picks as you do, love it, but yeah. I think alot of these players could definitely do a job and you can get them valuepicks, like we say in recent years, like the sames, with damn butler andstuff, like that, you know that can be the perfect fit they're ready to go,and i think sometimes we get a bit carried away of the draft but yeah. Ijust thought i'd say some of those names. It's an interesting discussion,a right moving on to some list management decisions. I was thinkingabout this during the week. There's some teams that i actually don't knowwhat should do what they should do and i'm interested to hear you all thoughtsi like to think you're a bit of a list manager. I think, if the af, while allsports industries weren't so caught up on everyone, having played the game ifevery staff eme didn't have to play for, i reckon you would be riding there real,a genuine don list manage al. So i'm interested to hear what you take isi've got three teams here: west cos port and richmond. It's up to yourhouse specific. You want to go whether you want to name specific players orjust a general strategy, but i'll ask you what these teams should do acrossthe next two or three trade periods off seasons, whatever youwant to say, because they're all sort of it across roads. In my opinion, andi'm interested to see what you should suggest, they should do moving forward,so yeah feel free to rip in all right yeah. I won't be too specific,otherwise his episodes going to go until to night, but i think west coastis one to kick it off. So as we've as i touched upon in the year,they list is old and i people ascide to really realize now that it's a problem,especially the last few weeks- and i don't honestly- i don't think thisthese veterans, i think the premiership windows past.You know the veterans that play for them. You know like we see, like theshannon hands the kennedys, but then, even if you get into these players,like you know the shepherds, the shoes and all that i don't, i know this isobviously very sort of abrupt. Given it's only really been his last fewweeks that they've fell to deliver but yeah i am as we've seen by richmond. You need tohave you know a bit of youth in there running around. You know, we've seenfrom so long that they just simply can't get a grandfather in the last fewyears with us to do with age and at you know not nine percentile or anythinglike that, but in terms of west coast they can't bring in. I don't thinkanyone over the age of twenty eight. They need to go young, or at leastplayers that have had a little bit of opportunity, but i haven't seen tobreak into the side or cementite. You know, as you said, as a samedou butler, because these veterans are running out of time.Obviously they just about all over the ball. Theyhave blokes that are really old. So and it's just about in every position, soas we've seen with the youth that they've brought in over the last fewyears, os grands obviously become a star. Even just this year, we've seenlokated and look foley, you know, produce some very good games and verystiffly been dropped. So look, bringing i think i think gone atthe drive for a few years is probably going to be handy because they've gotenough. Look. They do have enough talent on this list to contend over thenext, maybe year or two. I said that to with astrict,because i just don't know how long these guys have got left, but it'sreally not long and whether it's a good, footy or not, but it just depends on what road i wantto go down. If they want to contend next year, then yeah obviously go after. Maybe yousee these boys? We talked about earlier that maybe i'm this best twenty two,but could definitely play a role in other teams best twenty twos, but i don't think they should bebringing anyone over the age of sort of you know two thousand and twenty ninewithout either just falling out at prime, or i anything like that becausethey just join the list of the you know...

...the plethora of old blokes that westcoast have so i mean all of west coast, lots of west coast midfield, asobviously nearing that age. You know gaff she e even le r he's, not youngany more are all sort of past their primes. You know even the life of jack, reddens,thirty and he's you know been a consistent ativity this year, butobviously he's entered the thirties, which is were to cree, obviouslydeclines unless you're sean burger and so obviously yeah. I think i think,targeting a few blacks in this off season by the draft is going to behandy for them, because they show that they can develop youngsters, they don'tusually tend to bring in guys that have failed to get. Maybe a couple of gamesunder that belt at other clubs, they have recently an a couple of recentyears and so of zack langton and jamain jones, who have played this year apartfrom that just about everyone sort of home grown. So they do like to stick with the guysat their drafts and maybe a year where they bring in you know four or fiveblokes at like in the top. Fifty their draft would be handy, but itdepends because they do have the talent of probably play to it next year, given,even though how old their list is. So i think just a little nice bix of youknow four five blokes to make sure that when these guys all do fall intoretirement, it's not a huge huge deal and they don't fall way down the ladderand that these guys have all got a few years left. So few is into them. I alsodon't want the tax of bringing a couple mature age. I think gun in the wufflecould kind of wear something he's going to get his chance. This way he's twentytwo and is an absolute ball in the midfield, a couple of guys like him.Maybe they can help out at least next year ifthey do want to go for that one last chance of the finals tip, but i don't.I just don't think it's going to happen, but well, wait and see how they gotabout it, but yeah. I think i think the premiseswindows past the vectors they've got on the list, but will wait and see on to port as well. I think they're ina much better position, they've structured their lists a lot betterthan what than i guess west coast. I think west coast sort of all theirveterans are retiring at one sort of space of a few us much light along. Sothey sort of focus solely on those few years ago, which did succeed for thejus, get a flag so well run to them. However, it is obviously going to bedetrimental because you know they're all going to retire that at least allgoing to fall out their primes and retire at the same sort of period, soport at lad's. Another one that is probably in a better position: they dohave a much better mix in terms of youth and experience, obviously largelydo the fact that the youth has come on and being successful. So i'm talkingthe likes of desmaines and budders georgiades and all these guys have allsort of leaped on to the scene and become consistent best. Twenty twoplayers in a top eight team, or at least a top fourteen or one of the time,so that's obviously been huge and the only real worry in terms of age ismaybe travis. Bok in that midfield is obviously pleased. He seems you knowhis career looked shot and dead a couple of years ago and he just comeout and had a couple of his career best years. So when that man, lescompetition release, stops getting all these twenty five plus canes, i'm nottoo sure, but i think they don't have to have a massive draft focus giventhey are in the premiership window and will be for a lot of the time. I thinkyou know maybe one or two top sort of two thousand and twenty five picks overthe next few years, a obviously going to be handy, given they do like e progress, their youth over they. They haven't been a massivetarget of release over the last couple of yearsof bringing in these high quality players. They brought in a lirio,obviously didn't command. It come on a little bit, but not a whole, much butyeah in terms of bringing like a grade plus players. They haven't really gone after anyone huge whether thatchange this off season- i don't know, but they do have the persuasion powerof being a genuine contender over the next few years to do so, so thatobviously wouldn't be bad at all, given that it do an they sorry, they do coughup these winds to top tier teams every game this year, so whether that meansthey need a bit more of a grade, talent or experience in this team. It'sprobably given, so i think, going after a grade, maybeto obviously to is probably bit of a stretch but just trying to learn one.This yer would be handy, especially in that midfield. You know, maybe a bit of ball use inthere would be handy, given you know like the lights of bok and wise andtrue these idle. You know prolific pall users, probably bit stiff to tho brokenthere, but as we see with wines, you know he talksup a hundred fantasy, but a hundred and fifty see coached libet tude of justyou know the bombs long but yeah they're in a much betterposition. Port than probably other two teams here, given they've got a reallynice mix of you in this team, and just...

...guys are a very serviceable so like inyour own mackenzie and clery as the k pillars and the fence, obviously, and sorry join us, obviouslyto go and wake a wake out. They're, not obviously like the top top defenders inthe competition, but you know very serviceable and do their job and thelast ten i'll probably touch on is richmond and it just depends what partthey choose to go down and i think they're still wetly capabilities go forone more flag next year. So i touched on this few episodes agoan i think, my solo episode. I think it would be a mix of youth and we alsojust back up, plays they their salary, probably can't i know they're goingafter chera, but well. First of all, i think the solowill only just be able to manage that, but i i think they need a little bitmore quantity over quality like their quality. Is there we've seen that overthe last sort of four years, they've won three flags? I don't think theyneed to throw all their eggs into one basket and go for char. I know it wouldobviously probably be beneficial for them, because he's gonna be a qualityplayer over the next war er ten years i care, but if they want to go after thisflag sort of next year is as well give it it's going to be the last sort ofhear these guys that, like you, know, dusties in the thirties now you know iwas so i'm actually not too sure how old dust is. I think he's just hadthree. You know cochins, obviously old, now jack real. We don't know what he'sgoing to be doing, and you know a lot of these. The they're, obviouslydefense. I swear they're all the same age, but they don't get any younger so whether they want to go for that lastflag next year, look probably going after a few backupslike i said. We obviously saw what happened to their midfield this yearwhen they they lost just about everyone, theysort of crobble. They had to throw a few young votes in there like colliedor kinds stuff, which probably didn't obviously didn't set the world of. Ididn't really take them to many sort of honorablewins. Didn't you know, we didn't really see any headlines saying you know. Howgood are these you guys in the midfield and all that so a oken, a you sort ofready made backups that maybe can't get a game at other clubs. I know thereobviously wouldn't be went. They could well be playing twentytwo games every gay next year, but yeah, i think a guy's. You know likethe power peppers and the constables of the world would be handy whether theycould persuade them to come over or not, given that the not lock for twenty twois another question, but i think it should honestly be a mix of youth andbackups if they're going for that last premishes next year, which i think theywill. But you know you can sort of kill twobeds. One stone sort of a mass five or six draft picks get a whole sort ofhandful of youth in there, as well as making sure you're. Not you know beingdetrimental to your final chances, i think would be very handy for them, so how they get all those dry picks.I'm not too sure i don't think they've lost too many in the this year. Youknow in terms of training future ones from last year, so maybe it's the weather of lettingone or two french players that simply don't get games. You know so they'reeither there are other ends of the ground rather than that mid field,because something that midfield is where he've got to focus on in having a few backups, because ithink forward line. They do have a bit of debt. They've alios got morris orolly running around the ford line and the in the twos calm, common jones andchole, and all these guys you know they can only play so many of them, so whether it's were letting one ofthose couple go for maybe one or two picks in order to get some midfield back upwould be handy because it's still quite a bit young to throw cloyed organs inalong with you know, lights of will. Martin and a few of the two boys havegot running around the two, so yeah, a few of the boys got running around to sinto the starting midfield when a few of their stars get injured, becausethat midfield is very injury. Prine, as we sing with press here and landberg so yeah. I think i think to some of all.I think west coast need a bit of youth. They promishtwindow. I think it's past their veterans, so they will definitely behandy to make sure that their fall isn't monumental. Port can go aftermore sort of a late, a grade talent but as we've seen they like to developtheir youth. So a couple of drapes in there, obviously probably gonna, be theroad they go down, but yeah. They can obviously feel afraid to target someonethat wants to come over with a couple of flags and richmond depends: papallya mix of both kill two birds of lone stone, get a mix of you so like westcoast, their falls on coal be bad, but also some backups. For when thatmidfield does inevitably cop a few hits during the year, so thatthey're there are starting this field, doesn't you know, have the lights ofcollege darkens in their straight away, because he don't even i think hedebuted and had to be thrown straight in there, so the one to have a chancethat finals tilt with that final flag. I think they need they definitely doingit. A couple of ready made backups in that yeah. A hundred percent agree withwhat you've said there yeah obviously sounds a bit alarmist for me:put ing port up the lad in there...

...because they're not really in the samesituation, west coast of the third oldest list,richmond of the fourth and then put out a lad. Only the ninth, but my onlyconcern with port is that jonas gray broken dixon all the wrong side ofthirty, and in my opinion i don't think they're going to be when a premiershipin the next two years. So by the time you know the window opens as such, likethose players are probably going to be gone. So that's my only concern withthem. If i was playing like cefn care mode, i'll be trading like rain so andtrying to get maybe a young tea forward or something like that. But i know thisis real. Life and loyalty is a thing and stuff like that. So that's notreally going to happen, but yet it's going to be interesting to seehow they deal with that. But i have to say, plaudits have to go to kenny. I thinkhe manages his youth very, very well and the way you sort of just seamlessly blooded, bergman and frederick, andthat sort of bunch this year and even farols become a before his injury. Hewas a becoming a fairly instrumental player and yeah. I think once port getsfully fit again do thing, even if they can't went a paris in the next twoyears. I think they're pretty well set up for the future and they're prettysuccessful at drafting as well. So i think they'll be fine. I'm interestedto see what west coast do, though i think out of these three teams aredefinitely in the worst position. They've got the third oldest list.There are a chance of not making the top eight. Do you think adam simpson?Is the right man to commence a rebuild if they do had that way, or do youthink his job should be looked up? I think it's finally the time in west coast last so a few years weyou say: maybe it could be time to be looked at. Oh so, i'm not too sure but yeah whenyeah. Obviously, when you say it like that, you know that the third oldestlist and they are changing missing finals. That's obviously not where youwant to be that's. You know, that's two negatives right there. So look whether it's a switch up incoaching. I don't know because i think their playing styles. He outdated this.This whole sort of slow ball movement up the ground doesn't is easy out at itor with the new rules of you, know the man on the mark andeverything and just how sort of contested and also fast pace the gamesgetting so yeah. Obviously, those are two polaropposites, but you know just how quick the game'sgetting is sort of working against them,because you look at that team and there's no one with sort of blisteringspeed, the least off that half back in the midfield so and yeah. If you look at the way theyplay, they don't play with. You know: shir ferocity like you know the likesof richmonds, all that who really bring the pressure and a quick so yeah. Maybeit's a matter of switching up this whole playing soul. I know it obviouslyworked them in two thousand and eighteen, but you know that was threeyears ago. The game was honestly, the game was different three years ago,even if you look at it today. So you know where i'm sure that a list isobviously going to change a whole heap over the next few years and whetherthat's a change in coaching may be beneficial for them. So yeahhonestly, i'm not too sure whether it's going to be whether it's going to be looked at am simpsons job. I'm sure youknow they'll maybe be discussions, but i'm sure they come to the rightdecision, but yeah, it's just a matter of weight, and so they are a with themand it's going to be very interesting to see how they go up over the nextsort of five or six weeks and whether they do make the finals and whetherthey can have an impact there or whether they simply fall out of theeight, and it all turns to shit so yeah we'll wait and see with the evils, butyeah. It's definitely hit the time. When i like few eyes an be on a simpson,yeah, i'd probably say sucking, but realistically, if we logically think itthrough, like the last few sort of cross roads, clubs have been, i know,port three or four years ago, and we're close to sacking kenny hinkley, and nowthey are a promisiner richmond all the way back in, like twenty fourteenfifteen, i remember when i arrived in melbourne. Hardwick was one of the mosttalked about coaches in terms of job security and stuff, like that, so yeah.If we look at the patterns in the trends, you probably say keep him butyeah. I think it does have to take a bit of a leaf out of those guys books,especially kenny hinkley, like play. The edwards is play the follies evenplay, widen and not just play them. Two weeks drop them for three weeks, bringthem back like actually just give them a permanent spot mix it around get dugand involved more. I still think he's a very talented player, one of their sortof prize picks in the last five years and he sort of seems to be playing abit of an irrelevant roll where he gets ten to twelve touches a game anddoesn't have much impact, but yeah. You probably need to take a few more risesort of a bit of a boomer when it comes to his decision making and stuff likethat. So i'd like to see if you resten yeah, maybe lure if you picks away fromother clubs with the i don't know,...

...tempt them with a shoe or somethinglike that. I but yeah. If he's going to stay, there he's going to start takingsome more risk because right now, they're sort of just in a land ofmediocrity and not much as gone, i'm right for them all right. That wasinteresting to hear our thoughts on there. I still believe you are a listmanager for the future, all right time through our breakdown about premie shipsort of favoritism. I guess we did this a fewmonths ago, and i had the tigers like right up at forty percent or somthing.I've done it based on my top eight, so i've actually don't have the tigersinvolved now i've. My percentages are really specific, so that yeah, it'spretty weird, but i've ben got a calculator or something but to long onmy favorites now i just think they've got enough experience compared to thelikes of the dogs and the demons and well coved bar, and we don't reallyknow where the finals be, because an outbreak can happen at any time, but itshould be in victoria. I know they'll be forced to play the gm whatever, but they've been building for the last fewyears haven't quite got over that final hurdle, and i reckon this years theyear a d. Then i've got the dogs in its second around twenty percent chance out of the rest of the both sides, jolong i've seen there the best of the rest. To be honest, i don't have fullfaith in them. They haven't showed up to a few of the big games. They've beenin this year, but they've just got a lot of a grade talent that i've got thelines and that, third, for me, that would be pretty close tothe number one seed if it wasn't for the fact that they have to come tomelbourne and probably win to maybe three games to get the flag this year.I think last year was their big chance with the home, granny and stuff, butyeah. I think it's going to be tough for them, but they for me they're,probably the best team if we were just playing on a neutral venue, althoughthe same as did with them last week, and then i got the des tied in andaround third, the lions think they're going to be a bit of a surprisepackaging finals we've seen all year how good their ben on top four teams. Istill don't have complete faith in them, as i do with like jalon, but yeah veryinterested to see how they go, that i've got a huge gap to fifth. I've gotthe swanning on about eight percent, think they could maybe upset a big team,but don't think they could. You know, upset three teams in a row. Somethinglike that. So that's a big ask. The ave got poured down a six percent, justdon't think it's going to be their year and i think the stars are sort oflining up for them. Sadly, and then yeah the eagles and bombers, don'treally see there is them winning them. Winning itself got them down at likefour and three percent so yeah for me, jo long dogs and then the lines anddemons, and apart from that, i'm not too keen on anyone else. What about you? Well, i haven't really got the root ofpercentages, i'm more just attracted in order, but yeah look like i said this.Is i finally sort of bored into the days. I know the sort of chalked up afew losses over the last few weeks, but at the end of the day, every single tendoes at every year. So i think, i'm more focusing on the winds that thedays get rather than the losses of they cough up, and i think the wins thatthey get are more convincing than any other win that any other team gets. Soyou know they're, obviously just but just about beating every team. This top,he you know they bake the dogs in that huge match up on a sort of ten ways in and they beat the lines. They look y,obviously better on this on point, this sing all off, but i'm going to have thedays in at that number one chance because well i mean it's closer,certainly they're going to finish top to, and i have them finished and i so ihaven't winning that first final as well, so i haven't obviously goingstraight to a prelim just giving how good they match up against this top ateam. So i've got them as the best chance, because you know what happenswhen you win your first prale abso o you in the qualifying final you're,most likely to go on to the grand final and then go the dogs and cap sort oftied in a second and the obviously bo victorian base, which helps us can'treally split the mome to the experience of the cat and as a huge factor, butjust the classiest of the dogs as well. I might just have a cat in a head ofthe dogs just given the fact that we've seen orthe last few weeks, the dogs- i don't, i think, melbourneave overtaken them. I know the dogs have got the high percentage and allthat, but honestly, those are just against shit teams where they justabsolutely take the piss but yeah. I think you know the loss is tosort of sydney and the cats, and all that makes me kind of want to have the catsin a bit higher. I think they'll be a bit more might say, consistent or reliable eversince they ditched that shit play style that they had. Last year and early onthe stage this year i i've ten got yeah. I've got then gota bit of a gap until fourth or at least a third fourth have of you want to putit, and i put the lines in there. I think the whole factor of as we knowwe don't know, what's happening with covin, but assuming the final series isplayed in victoriam. It's obviously not helpful the lines, especially with thegrand final with the ge,...

...but they're acquired tan. You knowwe'll see how he you'll see how they match up against richmond tomorrownight, the j, because i haven't seen them, play there in a long time, i've only got city at six yeah look onpaper. It's just there's a bit of a difference. I know i keep on saying onpaper on paper for them, but i think when it comes to finals, i think that'swhen it. You know this sort of statement really does have a bit oftruth to it, because you do have to sort of win three or four games to winthat grand final and it's to get the top back teams- and i know this sort of you know confidence in playing thissort of be great players. You don't can't get you the sort ofupsets we've sent the last few weeks or release. You know not expected. You know thrashings, aswe've sayin the last few weeks, i'm not sure how far i will get them inseptember. So i know that sort of a negative way to putit on the swans, but a great way to look at it as though the next sort offew years they're going to be right up there. So i'm going to have them in thesix of sort of richmond, and it's actually now so i just ones at a fifthof fourth to pan on how i'm a look at it up then got richmond next, i still think they make. There is stillhuge chance funny enough. They've probably playedbetter gatts, better teams than they have against shitterton this year, sothat's probably a factor in for them this. They obviously know when to turnit up and that's in september, so if they make it, i've still got them rightup there. Poor alata then got next like they just simply can't bear a good team,so i don't have them. I don't have them in this sort of top,for at least close to these old teams, a you got to play in victoria b. Theyalso can't match a onto his good teams and obvious and also see i don't thinkthey're going to make the top for so they can be knocked out any week and ifthey come up against richmond i'll, tell you what that's going to be ascary way for poor fan to give an they've justice down the top fall spotand the coming up against the team that was on the last three out of fourprevise, so yeah, it's there's tons then, but i'vegot them right down there and then, after that you know the likes of you,know the bombers and the eagles and frail just whoever makes that last sortof final spot and so yeah they're, all obviously probably not going to win thefinal they're. So the grand final so they're, all those little so of onepercent, is like you said, but yeah interesting to see. I'vedefinitely got these dogs and cats. Above the rest, i think they have separated themselvesbut yeah. It will be interesting to see yeah. I know pitch. Isn't here soinspict speak for im, bane he'd have the des. On top with you, there allright, we've done a long run today, but a little bit of a super cage chat,maybe not to in depth this week. But did you have a good week made a rankingrise or well? If you said this week, i'm goingto score two thousand a d four hundred and fifty one i be thing it out. So iwas a pretty good school. But then, when you say i'm going to lose all fourof my leg matches i'm going to drop in rank, just i don't know what's going on like so i think in the league that i thinkthere's only one league that i mean that accurately represents how myseasons going and that's halewood's league, where it's about ten of us. Ithink i'm coming second. So i'm happy with that in his other liber league,where obviously pilchers in there's about eighteen haler, guys in therereally sort of you know it's put on wet haleb. I have scored the, whereas, ifscale the fourth most yet i'm coming twelve. So i'm obviously i'm a lot closer toeighteen and i am to first, even though i've i've got a percentage of a hundredand four which i think is the second highest in the comp yeah, i'm in serious danger of missingfinals, i'm on the same amount of points as you and that league. So, ifyou overtake me by seasons end, then i don't know how i'm going to continue onthis pody but yeah. I just don't know how that'shappened. It's also the same in my cricketing league and for the bubbysharks. I was the most point score it. Last weeki an i just got overtaken this week. I mean a second in point scored and i wassitting in at position. So yeah look. I don't really know what'shappening this year, i'm i m. I seem to be having like a dc, i'm about twopoint. Five rank two point, five k which well obviously you know it isn'tfantastic, but, like you know, it's not terrible. So in terms of the wake, whatit all just kicked off with carl langford, who was just going sublimelyand then got injured on ninety eight, so that's going to be a trade there,i'm going to be gone straight to jordan, to goey i'm playing bozzari. Two of my leaguematches this week, so those are both can be huge match. I've really good togo a win there, but yeah, and then it was just thewickfield injury as well. So two injuries this week is not ideal,especially when you're on four trades left and it's going to be three afterthis week. Luckily with fields only out for one week but yeah, it was just itwas just a bit. You know i think, to have a good week this week, a lot ofpeople you know, had to look brayle who got one twenty out of nowhere. But iwas one of those guys that a didn't actually emergencyhim and be couldn'tloophole him, even if i did want it...

...but yeah going into this week andbecoming high more in the field and going to be having to loophole one ofwater medal, whitman. So yeah, it's not looking overlypromising. This pit pat, were just going to wait and see what happens but yeah, i'm obviously with those sortof eight and twelve positions at the moment. It's more of a fact of tryingto a just make files now, rather than trying to finish in the top for so i'mshats and now stew, it and redly and lloyd, and you know, based on my wholemidfield, minus lions and then grundy as well, for having a huge captain'sperformance and then yeah the north pair up forms able, on the whole forall having really solved games getting into the score i got but yeahyou know to lines and dusty and those guys andwoodfield are gang can cast. You know, screw you and lento for fucking,pinging and hammy. That's just really not handy, given i mean confines, wereall going to need these trades so year going to be doing that langford to go.We trade put me down to three trades and can't wait to get five long terminjuries this week. What about yourself yeah, shot out to fill two doesn't haveany trades left and a ses most of those injuries. Don't e e, like dowie's, gotlangona whitfield yeah, but i don't on against jaffna yeah, that's good forhim, but yeah. I don't have a me that yeah i had a pretty bad week as usual.At this point, it's not even really a question every every week i start withlike a decent project, and it just slowly gets worse and worse yeah. I copbon is captain for the second week good to see skipperin in his two worsescores. I think this is set around four or something dev robinson on fir gottwenty, which was pretty disappointing and now he's going to break even oflike a hundred and ten and i've got three trades left which i want to save.So i ad a bit of a pickle there, because he's probably going to drop alot and price the next few weeks, but i don't really want to waste. A trade hadlike bianco got like forty, including a goal. I think so i don't know howthat's possible. Himal got ninety seven on field, which is pretty handy, dunceand turned out to be a great trade, as my mate got like a hundred and fifteenhundred and twenty something like that. Just didn't really have any of themassive schools on this way. That's kind of want to help me back andobviously having those two ship rookies up and field, but yeah can't really complain too much atthis point. My teams is not great, probably i've given up on leagues downpretty much out of wye and the look of one league but yeah pretty much out ofit. I would take a miracle, so i'm just going to conserve my trades andhopefully climb the ranks in finals time wheneveryone has spent their trades and yeah bit of a scummy tactic, but seehow hot yeah i do want to use. Those final three trades but yeah if i burnthem now, i'm getting injury while i've got a shit team with injury, so i mayas well have a shit team with the injury trades in the bank, but yeahanyway. I post see how pictures no trade left tactic goes in his mission.For top one k, i think you had a decent weight. Can't really remember to behonest but yeah on we hear from him next week. I'm sure i ad time for around eighteen preview. I think it is around eighteen. What we're going to dois our usual line tipping handicap, tipping whatever you want to call it right. So first game, free, manto,visus, gelong, ajalon, the favorites and the line is five and a half. I'vegot to take a long here. That's not a huge line. I assume it's in perth, butyeah t i a long still yeah i'll. Take you long there. What about you, i actually don't mind for it and i ican erin with a chance of an upset, but in saying i'm still going to go jolonyeah. If the lime was like twelve, maybe i'll- think about free becausemight be close, but yeah five not much original. The brusie line is thirteenat in a half thing: it's a richmond home game, butas for all the melbourn games this week, not sure if they're going to happen, iknow like five teams of evacuated melbourne overnight, so we'll see howthat goes, but that's a pretty decently sized line for richmond game. I amtempted to go. I think i actually might go richmond there, not sure if they'llnot sure, if i'll tit them in head to head but yeah i'll back them to coverthat line. At least i'm gonna go richmond as well. I'm not tually goingto tip them as well. I think now i'm going to win. I think this ill be theway where they turn around, but we'll wait and see. Yeah, don't mind thatcalled ws sidney the sydney darby. I guess it's happening ballarat. I think.If we see the same window, conditions is last week. Hopefully, jines don't pick sam momfordbecause really did not work last week and smacked around the grand by chrisbar just but line of elevenn a half sydney good form,but i'm going to back gows, i feel like...

...they are surprising, like they sort of turn upin the games. You're not expecting and bus versus i'll, say, gs, not true,i'll back them in a head to head, but i'll back them to make it close. Theleast what was along in sorry eleven and ahalf i'm still going to go. I think i'vejust got this ones, yeah, fair enough, fair enough it next one gol cos doghe's not sherwins has been played line is twenty five and a half pretty large.But for me i know goal cos are in good form,but i'm actually just going to back. The dogs in reckon hell have a bounceback when, after disappointing couple games of late yeah, i an dogs will just do what theydo and just smack him by forty fifty points. But i would love to say thesons get up, but just make it all a whole lot interesting. But yeah theyall just go to dogs yeah. I don't really trust the sons, yet i m not surewhat well there's, obviously, a reason why there's about nine years ofevidence, but yeah fair enough o also go cried. I like mark of who got fortyso shout out to him, was west pick up of balls on that one melbourne versusfor form massive line of forty and a half. So for that reason i'm actuallygoing to back or on in that cement to make it a close one. I don't mind actually, but i've sort ofback to the horse. Last couple of weeks wet, i actually tipped the againstprayer which didn't work out and yeah. I do know the os just being what theycan turn on like they also did against ws, but they can just be really shit.So i'm not too sure i reckon all right an will be one of thosereally crummy sort of thirty point margins, but where it gets the line,i'm not sure i might actually jump on at hawks lineas well, but i'm still going to be back in the dasent head to head, obviouslyyeah and set the hawk o a few injuries as well. I know scream stop playing forking cushion, i think c j's out da i be at as well. I don't know yeah, i thinkthat's a ahtside about that and may be hard wick again. I don't know portsaits or shame. We don't have pill to wall yeah atali. Last week you back tomelbourne. I was going to say back port, i'm going to back port just causesaints on the top, like sixteen, that's specially by an the logic, top itinyeah. What's the liner two and a half, soit's pretty okay, yeah yeah! Look honestly i'll! Just go tosay: port gonna pray m wrong, but yeah it's gonna go yeah should be a goodgame to watch actually north esenen battle of the northern melbourne teams.I guess the live is eighteen and a half north of bating good form, sinan argofor a week performance, i guess, but this's, actually a tough one that linesprobably exactly where i have it. Well, what are you going with you? What was it again? Sorry, eighteen, tough one. I think the ability of the bombers toblow out teams like it's gonna yeah i've got them in my aid, so i've got achasot bombers, i think the bombs. Yet i just think that too much fire powerto make it a close one, yeah great collingwood, carton lines, one and ahalf. So that's pretty much his head to head. I'm going to back the blues, not sure why, but they eventually haveto win yeah. They do eventually have to win, but i actually get it back to pieto you, yeah they're, in very good form and n. Finally, adelaide west coastlines only six and a half so the adelaide over i am going to backwest coast. He i feel, like adelada, fallen off a little bit in the last fewweeks. To be honest, can't really remember theresults before last weekend think they beat than killed all butyeah i'll go i'll go west coast. I am very tempted to it. The crime i've just heard o tom brasses beet isout with the hamstring strain arcand i might throw be a vague curl and how they how they line up the cares might justhave to go the eagles thou they're going to get one of these annoyingvictories where everyone's like, oh they're, back o their back, but nowwe'll wait and see just quickly as well. Mat parker s going to make his debuttomorrow, o richmond. So so that's just one. He slit just been anounce then, but yeah shot out to mate park. A super coacheefor handed be great, so imagined used to pump outlike fifteen. I am so pumped sing back because he was i loved his exford. Iloved his sort of pace and aggression, but it was a love hay because he oftengot five or six touches, but it'll be great. I i'd love to watch him play,but sometimes i wasn't the same order. So it's perfect to see him back playingfor an other team, so i can't wait for...

...that. Yeah yeah! That's actually true!That will be exciting. Give rich man some spark that they will and trulyneed, or right thanks for joining me, ro being probably one of our longesttoday actually but feel like with address and born topics.
