ABOUT THIS EPISODE

The trio is in full swing in this episode of the On The Ball podcast. The boys chat all things AFL footy including the best free agents yet to sign a contract for 2022 and potential rule changes they would make if they were in charge. Those along with the usual discussion pieces mixed in with some utter dribble creates a fun episode for all to enjoy.

Welcome back to the on the ball podcastanother episode of the boys talking crap about a fl footy. I feel like a fl.Forty is a weird thing to say, because foot is in al like the world football,so you're sort of saying forty forty, but anyway il footy. It sounds good.Welcome back boys in the middle of a lock down. Look at her a cooked. I likeit, how you may thanks mat good good start to my confidence there,but now i'm going well met yeah, good good weekend of foote footy wise, not super coach wise, butget into it shortly. Yeah super coach is pretty hectic, obviously everyone that was hit in some way or another,whether it be josh kelly, dusty, the coved outs roy. How are you may i i i i love that bit of dribble you'vejust talked to kick off the episode of that fell and forty that's quite nice.Now i've gone well obviously shock and wait for fully for myself and fellowsaints fans by it was good around a board. Soup cage was pretty shit but yeah. It's going all right on a lovelytuesday afternoon. It's just started hailing, so i'm going to meet myselfevery time, i'm not talking because i likit sol of tapping on the window, butyeah i'm going right, yeah play on who cares by yeah. It's pissing downoutside of i've got a stump in my hand. I've probably just been wandering itaround all episode, so yeah, who knows, but we'll just be talking dribble we'veall not probably talk to many people are giving real lock down, but straight into the winnis and losers.We've got some we're not doing a red draft this week, but we're going to betalking about so maybe rule changes, suggestions and fragant, but before weget into that we're going to get through the usual staff winners andlosers from around eighteen yeah pilch. Who are your big winners? I'm going to talk about my boys againthis week. Look it wasn't. It wasn't a flash game offooting. In fact, it was quite a poor, very scrappy. Had neutrals texting me. This is theworst game i've ever seen, but after the game, the more i looked intothe context of it as from a port side of things, the latter implicationssecuring the top for position, a saints team that didn't play well, but werearguably the most informed team undefended after the by big windsagainst bridgemen and richmond, a lot of injuries, depleted team on the roadovid. It was a great win and sometimes you go to win ugly and for a lad haveshown over the last two years that were quite good at doing that, and sometimesyou just got to do it the hard way and we've done it, and it's got good implications for the restof this season. So upon reflection, it was actually one ofour better winds of the year. So i definitely have us, probably asthe biggest winners of the week interesting take for sure, but therefarandole roi, who would you say the biggest winners, were yeah. The reason i didn't put port inwas it yeah. I completely agree with that. When you said that pill, which iwas it was an ugly win, but you do need to win those games to get to get intofinals. No team is going to add a perfect sort of set of winds every year,so those are the type of games need to win in the port. Do it i'll height richmond quickly, obviouslygot the job done over brisbon finally sort of broke those few weeks of downfootball. You know, i, then you, if you weresmart enough, you could see this coming. It was the richmond new york kind ofknow. Brisbin obviously lost er, kep pod theway before and suffered a bit of a structure all set back and richmond. It was rawats, obviously biggame and everything, and obviously he kicked six chalked for and obviouslygot the job done. But big question now is how they're going to manage withtheir dusty. I think everyone's chucked him in their top age. Now, after a prayweek or two of not having them in there, i obviously didn't kick them out, andthis is exactly why i need this is going to happen. Hence white tip and sovery happy with that one, a bit of money that night as well, which wasgood, not the good way, link for a lot oftime, not another, but a good week for hawthorn as well, obviously could havegotten the win over the des. But i need to get two points over. The top of theladder is top a lout of tames, obviously very promising. They sortunearthed lucky bramble, who seemed like an abso weapon off. Half back wasgiven the kick out duties in the last few minutes. So i'm bigresponsibilities to him, but t i'm...

...proving to be another good, find forhawthorn their quest to blooding in some new boys west coast as well, torespond to the last few weeks to get the job done over at adelaide in frontof her laid over, which is actually a tough ask. So congration one by thirtytwo point. So a good response from them is definitely the response they neededso see how they go on the remaining matches of the year and sine as well tocome back from a slow start, an ins, the giants to just talk up another oneof those winds that we keep talking about it, the spans just keep onchipping away they've loved themselves into finals now, obviously, so it'sjust a now about finishing as high as they can and going as far in septemberas they can obviously equality side with what a good young talent. So it'sgood to get the winner of the giants and win that mental battle, which ithink the giants definitely lost after a few injuries and being in front andpotentially getting ahead of themselves. Yeah agree with that. A hundred percenttell you what the whole thorn gay was pretty spisy didn't actually know. Lukebruce was still alive. I think that's the first time i've seen him all seasomewhen. You kick that stag, but when that ball fell to him you just nowit was a. It was a goal in bound by biggest winny. You guys actuallyhaven't mentioned yet i've got jalon who look they brewin thursday night footy. If we'regoing to be honest, that we could talk more about frio because they wereabsolutely awful, but jalon probably showed why i had them. Is the numberone flag favorite last week and yeah? They just looked really reallydangerous and they look like a very scary. Opposition have had a few prettyimpressive away victories now in the last six or seven weeks, so yeah, it'sstarting to get a little bit scary for some of the other big contenders, andespecially when sides like the lines and stuff are maybe stumbling a littlebit so yeah. I thought long with big winners, the losers bilch. Anyone youwant to mention here. I actually would have said adelaide asmy biggest loser playing at home west coaster in pretty they're a betterside in that la but they're in horrid form, and they just got whacked at home.So you can siful say that adelaide a back down to being in the bottom threeteams of the comp and then obviously sing killed up onthe flip side of port. They just played horribly, they honestly had a chance towin, and then they just started pretty much just choking just turning the ballover every time. They got it so yeah they're, probably the biggest two yeah the amount in a set marks in thesaint culter game was pretty silly, but i was like it got to a point where,like neither team seemed like they wanted to win the game. They're justawful, but yeah, yeah yeah, dad sat robe i'll. Tell you whythere was somebody flipping into set mark a game is because we love, we arethe absolute kings and kicking to two or one contest, and i don't know if youremember pilch, but so i don't know s just basically everycontest really the game. We would kick to a two on one, but even some of ourinside is you know the be absolute paddick of space. It might be like atwo or two or something sped around the hole in time. Fifty we'd still managedto kick to it. Two on one i mean, even in the instance when it was four andtwo to the sand, and we ended up running into an open gold. I think itwas breadwill or something just strolled in we still managed to kick toa two on on that contest, and i think it was like lean it and someone else tospoil each other yeah yeah. It was yeah exactly so it was. I just. I wasthinkin o an analogy to describe saint kilda this week and i came up with aperfect one, so, but the last few weeks we've obviously been you know, we haven't. We've obviouslylost that to all that talk of finals and all those expectations. So let mestart of focusing our structure. I think the last few weeks we'veobviously got right, marshall and rider together and we fokes a lot more inlike the ball movement and all that. So that was all great and well happy whenwe weren't fakes in finals and then we got to port and then obviously it allwent to shit and i think a good way to describe it is say your say, you're akid going into an afell and it's like your first training session and youknow you're just kicking to a random trainer, no big name or anything. Youjust kick into a random like you know, you're, focusing on your bull drop andeverything- and you know your execution, your penetration of the keep. That'sall great, and then you stick dusty, martin in front of you, you're notgoing to be you're. Not going to be you know, focusing to the same extent iswere before you're going to be thinking, shit, shit, shit, its dust, you don'twant to fuck this kick up. I think that's exactly what saying kilda did. Ithink we got stage fright. You know we just completely as soon as we got thethe word finals mentioned again or at least whispered into our ear, and wehad a good side come up against and i must win game. I mean that's exactlywhat happened we sort of forgot how to play with. For god, you know ourstructure and everything how we've been winning the last few weeks. I think that analogy sums up basically,what's happened this week compared to the last few weeks. You know we raise the expectations. Wegot a good side put in front of us and...

...because of that, we forgot how to playand what's been working over the last few weeks, so overall yeah. It's nowtime to me, one two thouand and twenty two, the gay as a bit of false sense ofbelief, unless i can turn that around miracul. So in the next two weeks, it'sprobably going to be focusing on next year, but i can't see us now marshalout with the news in the last twenty minutes. I can't see us me getting on top of west coast this week,but when see and yet obviously for our terrible parma, you put it out on that. To only have the the three goal:kickers at home is absolutely woful. When jolon ka kick over a hundred inthe wet, obviously sandars huge go. Half from that harms shit and jos aswell to lose that mental battle as tidy. So obviously another team, five forfinals just went up to the challenge so overall yeah it was three teams thatwent up to the challenge. For me, they were all vine for finals and i thinkit's going to be well esan. I think you're just going toabsolutely brad bree skate across them and may be finished in the top pagerelease over tapeall and o the west coast and richmond gin me fling forthose last few spots as well, but in those three teams put a line andthrough each of them this week in tens of finals yeah. I agree with that. Afree us dogs actually forgot. I was in the web, but yeah jolon were they werelike holding the ball for like six minutes at a time they were justchipping it around and free. I legit couldn't get near it so yeah friend, bigger sose. For me,the other loser, probably in melbourne, but we've talked about this before theydon't really do well against the small teams, but they win the big game. So ifthey keep that trend up, it doesn't really matter that result. Pissed me off. I watch why. Why did that? Piss you up, becausebecause literally seven days before that game,they went adelaide over and played the game their lives, and then they, thefollowing week that drawed a hawthorn just an absolute joke, but to be fairi'll, take the drop point. The drop points yeah, i thought you'd be happy. Yeahbona pelly broke the record for the most clains in one game. Fourteen justso i shut that out. You have you ever seen you because i just i just lookedon fam foot. It was just a freak coincidence and i was like had likeeleven half way through the third and i was like shit. That's a lot. I justgoogled it and the record was like thirteen and then yeah next, o it hebroke it and i was like fin. This is a monumental moment like i was looking atthe records and all the people who had thirteen before there was only likefive and it was spread out across like a ete years or some. So this is, you might have had one there were.There are a few men. I know buddy had one i was like: how does he getthirteen clangers like you? When does he touch the ball enough to have thetin cling, as i was confused by that one? But i can't remember: who else wasi think danger had a couple. They might have been twelve though, but he was upthere a few times and then aaron hall this. This is probably a bit stiff tohaving the losers, but he beat the record for the most kicks without acontested possession. So when a harbor mate e, now jeestactually for ohara good, looking bloke and then my other lose at the portpilch. What do you think about this? I think the port jersey that they wore on on saturday is like actually one of theworst jerseys of all time. It's just such an unappealing granright, one yeah everyone likes it. Yeah that locks ityeah is like. I think the tall in black is a nice color, combo, even the whiteand tell i don't know why they need to get grey involved by yeah anyway. Ithought i'd mention that that was wy. A lot of my weak looking at that, butanyway put got up, so i can't back them out too much time for the top a boys i like kick usoff today. I did mine last week, so i might just do it for the rest of theyear and, i'm sad to say my top aid is actually just back to the original top.Add that we thought it was going to be for, like ten weeks are the orderschanged, but by only change from last week, as i'vegot richmond in for the bombers in eighth. Obviously i didn't predict richmond towin last week so now factoring in that wind, it's meant the leap from them, soyeah i'll, just read it out quickly: dog dods wine cats to lines threedemons for, but that's all i think four points or maybe six points in a veryclose power and it fifth still just nudging out the swans at six eagles andseventh and richmond in at eight. So unfortunately pilk that would mean thedreaded power of e richmond elimination final. But i feel like that's a littlebit less scary, without dusty, even to a twenty two men teen, that's easy class at that. Not i don't know, don't know but yeah anyway. Pilch whohave you got me yeah e. So in it number one the back...

...now jacks i was going to put them atfirst, but i'm pretty sure. Even if we go on pretty sure, even if we goundefeated, we won't have the percentage, so i've actually got to long. First, ithink them in melbourne are the best two teams in it. Melbourne. Secondmelbourne have a slyly heard of fixtur, so i've got you long. Pippin bulldogstheir port fourth brisbin, fifth swan's, six richmond. Seventh, i do think dusties are big out, butthey'll make finals, and then i've actually got the dons in a eighth i'vesnubbed the west coast. I still don't really back them in as a good team, and i have just heard the real martial news,but i think the saints are actually a very good chance to cause the upset as long as they do. I i said again, but yeah yeah, i actually say at the dot done aright. I is cool yeah. I i do my actual later productayesterday and i stupidly. I took a screen out of it for today's episode iate to late it. So i think i remember it so i had the days in at top and thedogs in it. Second captain at third and breesen come backup to fourth, unfortunately so port forty oud of fifth sydney in at six, i've got richmondfinishing it. Seventh and west coast, just pipin. The bombers by game bombershad better percentage for me, but just tist in the four point, so that couldgenuinely change by the week. So i will wait and see what happens there, buti've got the bombers in at night. At the moment, yeah fair enough. I've got the swansveels right now, the elimination final that would be spicy because they wouldbe coming in off their freaking, a hundred point loss or whatever it wasthere'd, be some mental demons there any other match ops that spice you boysin the finals. Potentially, i just want to see it alban, verse, dogs game. At one point ican a be awesome, yeah they're, playing on this open, a crowd back. They are yeah, so that'll beinteresting, but yeah i'd love to see that match at the chee yeah violebrisbin cats at the gather, but i don't think lines are going to finish highenough to get that time anyway or right. Moving into the talking points of theepisode. I was going to do this one last week, but we had a long episodeanyway, so i decided not to chris scott. The other week mentioned shortening thegame by twenty minutes in general, which i thought was pretty outrageousfor one of the head coaches to come out and say, but it got me thinking in nil and other sports in particularin or although there seems to be chats of rule changes quite often al's, more just interpretations ofrules. I cold the ball and stuff like that. I'd say that get altered, but ifthere were the chance for you boys to actually change a rule, you can changeinterpretations. If you like. What would you change? I'm interestedto hear some al people's opinions, because i have no idea what you guyslike and don't like about the game? Pilch? What would you change if you hadthe chance yeah? So i tatle didn't mind the idea behind the new, how you can'tmove on the mark rule to speed up the play, but instead of doing that, what iwould have done was a lot of the time you see when plays take a mark. Thedefender, full luck, holds them for, like three seconds, just completely shutting down theopportunity for them to play on quickly get the ball moving, and i think thereshould be a lot strict during that bring in some fifty mater penalties forlike stopping a player from playing on like that, rather than not being ableto move on the mark. So that's what i'd do, which is kind of lock, socker yeah, true to true yea, now, actuallyright that idea. That happens a lot in the game roy. What would you change well on a big in one of those people that reallydon't want to change the rules unless necessarily like, i think, a few of therural chains. I've liked over the last few years is you know the kicking out out of the back. I think that's reallyhealthy draft to actually kick to yourself. You can just run out o thing:at's been it sort of ensencialmente, which is good. I like that one. I, likethe stand rule now as well. I'm glad that you know i'm sane, paying itliterally every game, because i think there are some instances where playersaccidentally like take one step, but the umpire gives m bitter leaning seethere, which is good. It's more. So you know i just don'twant t sort of running around and stopping them from actually going oneway. So i, like those the one that i would change. I would get a little bitmore lenient on the sort of protected...

...area when players sort of take a mark somewhere just around the ground. Ithink it's pretty stupid when you get given a fifty minute penalty, becausesomeone five meters away from you runs a certain direction. That's one that ijust can't fathom but yeah i i can obviously understand it. Iwould just sort of make that you know protected area a lot smaller. I wouldn't have it so that someonewould tree five metes away from you. Can you know change the course of play?Just by running, you know a certain direction,i'd change that i wouldn't touch the length of the game. If you, if you arereally really wary of, plays you running out of steam and increase in alick of good injuries, just increase amount of interchanges, your allow pergame, i wouldn't touch the the length of the game. It's been that way for along time and the player seems to like it. I always one ever hear about you,know, fans and also just coaches, talking about shortly length of thegame but stuff. Then it's a better game. Whenit's long go, i think we all hated it last year when it was sixty minuteslong. However long it was so yeah in terms of what changes. I don't only dothat sort of restricting the protected area, because i just think it's stupidand it's that big, so yeah, yeah, fair enough, a i've got some more drasticones. I'm not changing the fabric of the game, but me and brownie werehaving a chat at the ofor the other day and we think the the post should be inplay. So if the ball hits the post, it's just like wherever the ball goeshappens. So if the ball goes in off the post, it counts as a goal. If it goesin the behind of the post, it counsels behind if it comes stray back into play,play on, because i don't know, i just see that make this in hectic moments. Idon't really rate the reviews when they're like trying to work out if ittick the post like who cares, let's just go post it in it's in. If it comesback out the tactic, i think that would be spicy to see, and then this is a weird one, but i'll get ridof the below the knee tackling like. I think you should be allowed to tacklebelow the knee, because i don't see why not, i think, if you lunch for them andtackle their ankles, i think fair play you're, risking your own life beingkicking the face by doing it, so i think you should be allowed to do it. Ican't see they call it like tripping or something, but it's like you're usingyour hands, not your feet. Obviously can't trip with your legs, like that'sdog as but yeah. I think if you go down for an ankle top or something play onwith your hand, the like that's good defensive work in my opinion, and thenthis is something from more as a player's point of view. They need to dosomething. I don't rate in a marking contest. You can just do anything withyour knees and legs and shit like the fact that you can get need in the backof the head or kick o the face. Is i reckon that's a bit outrageous like idon't want to play. Footin get need in the back of the head and kicked in theface, so i don't know how you change it, because it would be hard to changemarking contests and make it like. You can't use your knees, because that'ssort of the way it runs grown up marking, so it would take a long timeto get rid of, but yeah. I don't really want to cop a knee in the kidney orsomething when i got for a mark and contest. I know all the players arevery brave and they just do it anyway, but yeah as a player myself. I neverwant to put myself in that situation so if they could change the rules, so idon't look like a cow. Would that be greatly appreciated, but yeah? No. Iagree with you boys at the length that if you watch like three games back toback yeah, maybe that gets a bit long but yeah. If it's worked for a hundredand twenty years or whatever it is. I agree with you roy most, the rushoutchange. I had to write that about a fl, how they're pretty confident in the waytheir games run and they're just happy with it. I know the there's been a bitof talk about the hold in the ball rule, but it's worked for a long time, so idon't know feel like they should police the fifth day me to kick a bit betteras well. I feel like there's so many kids that get through that are like tenmeters yeah, so even just get rid of the rules a whole or just startactually placing it because yeah it's ridiculous. How many times and like theback line, you see a ten me to kick just basically give the team a freepossession and gives them like ten seconds to set up and stuff with themark all right time for some free agent talk. I can't lie when i did this. I'vegot i've got another one. Actually, oh all right, yeah rip in that was a that was a massive delaythere, but i think the deliberate rule needs a bitof a toggle, especially when blokes get done holdingthe ball, but they scamper to the boundary line and get out of bounds. Ithink if you've had prior and you get tackled over the boundary, then itshould be holding the ball or a freak it to the other team. That's and yeahthe amount of times you just see blokes walking it over the line, and you knownot that much pressure in like in their defensive fifty. They just walk it overthe line, get a throw in e. I think...

...that had to be stripped up on that sortof thing as well, because the only time you ever see deliberately get paid iswhen they're clearing it out of their defensive fifty and it goes out whichsometimes i don't even think is deliberate yeah. Do you would you think it would be too far stretched tosay they should just get rid of throwings in general and to say whoeverit's last off gets the kick, or i thought about that. I actuallythought about that. I've thought about whether if you kickit out, no matter what, then it should be a freak it, but i'm not sure if i'dwork or not that, like a lot of the skill errors honestly, should be freekicks to the other team. To be honest, yeah, fair enough now i do it rightthat there are a lot of times the play just like you know, backs over the line,it's pretty obvious, what they're doing but yeah right time for some free agents.Roy. I feel like you're, the king of this topic. So well head you, i donknow how many you're going to talk about, but i'm interested to see whichfree agents you rate the highest yeah. Well, it's a bit it's a bit of aweird one, because there's a lot of obviously unrestricted and restrict tofree eden, you sort of pull them all together. Lots of them are only freeagents because they're, just old and siding one new deal, so i just got acouple here, so i think josh kelly is the biggest one this year now he's obviously in jus at the moment andhe's restricted, so basically any club that wants and can off from it some ofmoney. And if, if i wants to take it, he can so i need definitely the biggest one,his proa best quality player at the right age as well. Obviously, entry isthe only problem at the moment, annoying le because he's such a qualityplayer. So at the moment i think he's going to be the biggest talk about onthis off season can gaffes one that a free agent has inresigned, but i think he will obviously having a probably career bestyear this year in a bed field. Mac creatures, an no one for adelaideobviously has been an all australian, but you know is really injury, rabbithow last couple years he's out of contract and it's been caught, i thinkby port as well at the moment. So that's an interesting one for yourpilch. Don't know if you'd won him one night but he's being looked up by you guys and thenthere's just a lot, a bunch of plays line. You knit there's plays likegeorge here: who's, a restricted free age and jack billings as well, then there's a lot of undersuit, theones which are obviously a less life the ill be leaving, but in the likes ofsort of ed corno mac kennedy, chris man, robbie gray, is actually one butobviously he's gonna be resigning. David asprey, luke, dunton's beentalked about a bit now let parker and all those guys but yeah. The rest ofthe people knows list of just sort of older boys design. Those one year deals so yeah, there's not too manyrestrictive, free ages his year, not as many as there has been the past. Bimanones are going to be kelly, probably jack billings as well. Another shockingperformance on the weekend from him. You just went missing, i think, might be right for saints to let him goand see what we can get for him and yeah the it's going to be more aroundjust trading this year on and free agency moving, but yeah. We interesting to see whathappens, but i'm definitely sort of just going to maine one two, three andkelly guthry crouch, expecting obviously guthrys the onethat's most like. Could it be to be staying there, but yeah be a wash orspace for cally and crouch kelly, especially for victorian fans, becausei don't know what he's tossing up i've heard. You know both sides of the story.You know he's more likely to come to victor's more like to this day. So willbe interesting to see what happens at the end of the giant season. Yeah i've i've only written seven downhere. I actually think josh kelly is going to stay personally. I just thinkthe deal he's got. There is like just too good to turn down at something likecan't remember what it is. Is it like seven years, it's like one point one million year or somethingridiculous like that. I can't remember, but it's all his choice if he wants it, so i don't know why he would turn thatdown personally- and i just can't picture him in another jersey but yeahi would be pretty spicy to see him go somewhere else would be entertaining so he's, obviously the biggest fish.For me, a lot of victorian clubs would want him well a lot of clubs around theleague on im but yeah. For me, i reckon you would just stay number. Two. I'veactually got lucky parker. I know he's a bit older and he's probably justgoing to resign, as you mentioned roy on a shorter contract, but i do thinkhe's a little bit overlook. Sometimes, i think, is a genuine weapon of thecompetition. I even though chops at at times all good extractors love to chopit, and he is one of those boys he just racks up. You know six to ten clearance,the game like no one's business and his absolute weapon. I, but i think, you'llstay. I don't know why you would be...

...tempted to leave that city to one sideat the moment, a they're going to need a few experienced guys to lead aroundthat young side and i think, he's perfect, for it can go three. As youmentioned, roy number three once again can't picture him leaving but yeah thelast two years he's gone to another level. He was always just like a solidrole player for them, but the last couple years he's turned intoone of their real stars and number for i've got maddie crouch so always beentalked about how impactful he actually is, but he knows how to find the foot.He knows how to get a contested possession. I think you will leave justbecause he hasn't played for the crows for so long pretty much. I wouldn'tsurprise, like i feel, like he'd, be quite disconnected from the side atthis point so yeah i wouldn't be surprised to seehim go somewhere else, and i think it would be quite interesting to see himgo somewhere else and we can maybe see if he can become a more impactfulplayer elsewhere. See that's one to watch out for anotherone. I think you still free agent, but georgy shet still fairly young. Iwouldn't be surprised if this one is. Let him go to be honest, because they're just going to have a lot ofissues in the next few years, keeping some of those young guns. So i think so,on, like a george hewart is probably one of the more expendable players. Ithink you had a really good game on the weekend. Actually, but yeah i reckongeorge, you hew, it wouldn't be a bad pickup for any site in the competitionwould just be a pretty sold role player not going to be like one of your topthree players, but you know he'd be better than the average joe on yourside. You can count in him most weeks, sean lemons, a solon who's had a bit ofa breakout season. You'd have to say thing: he's been pretty mythical up tothis boy in his career, but he's turned into a lockdown defender and he'sactually pretty good at it. There's not too many lockdown smalls going aroundhe's actually pretty decent at it. He's a he's a free agent, so i reckon you'llstay. I think god coast will realize the importance he brings to the side.So i reckon or stay there, but they'll be an interesting pick up. If a bigteam would go get him because i don't think he would demand much salary. Tobe honest, he doesn't really have a big name fact or anything like that. Sothat'd be interesting and then yeah. Finally, i've only got seven, so jackbillings would be interested to see if he left. If another club could unlockthe potential is always held. So i would like to see him leave to behonest, just to see if that actually happens, because i don't think it's youknow really going great for him at the sangars and yeah. Hopefully san you canget something worth while back and return yeah pilch, any other freeagents or what fragant interest you the most yeah. I ranged my top five as kellyguffey parker, crouch, robbie gray in that order. Obviously gray or race. Sin actuallywould not mind the idea of crouch coming to port actually radim, and ithink he could do a job on the wing or in the on the inside of the midfieldand he's at a very good age. We've got an age in midfield, so would not mindthat at all- and i agree, luke parker is underrated. Rican he's a weapon,definitely in a grader and yeah, but he'll probably stay as well yeah po. What do you think about joshkelly? I know you've talked about him coming to port as a bit of a joke, butdo you think you actually lain? I don't know that's hard. I want to same lad actually justbecause it'll be o spas things up, but yeah great, whether i think you will ornot. I don't even know. To be honest, it's hard to say i mean the giants, alltry and try their hardest to keep him so yeah yeah, i kind of want them to leave, buti just can't see it happening i and know i'll get good off as elsewhere,because he's got but yeah just reckon news. I don't know that offers too good toturn down. For me, that's such a weird contract that he has that all in hisfavor, but anyway fair play to a well on to his agent. I guess i must be agun at his job, all right time for sub super coach. I know pilch has beendreading this one for a while because he is out of trades but i'lli'll go first, i have another pretty bad week. I got below two thousand, solooked at the teams on thursday night, and i knew my my fate was sealed with aweekend my teens crap anyway. So i struggle to get two sand at the best oftimes, but libby and colors both got managed to work like my m four and five,maybe and mark of strain his calf the week before, and heset out for a week which i just read to roy before we came on. Apparently heprobably would have been fine to play, but the suns have like a policy whenthey have a six day turn around they.

Just anyone with a nickle doesn't playso yeah, that's always good to know, but so it had to cop mirth, thirty fiveon the ground or whatever it was. But anyway that's my fault for having a barside so yeah. I went down and rank somehow. I think the o go like camelike eighths in the round rank which just wasn't good footy also had dustyand kelly as a lot of people did had bonds and grundy, as my vice andcaptain jeo, which need the tunder, which was pretty good to see not sure what else were wrong for me.But yeah. Just not much went right for me really, but anyway we move on. I'mnot that bothered at this point out of all leagues and just hoping to get atop. Fifty c finish: rali. How do you go well this week i'll focus a lot of myleague games because, as i said previously on, liketop for and top two in a couple of my legs, a point scored, but i'm actuallyoutside the top of eight. So i had the folks a lot on lead this week, so isort of got swept up in that a little bit. I got two two, three nine, whichis an ideal. I dropped sort of six hundred and forty eight spots to outjust outside the top trek. Basically i had the bet roughly thesame projected as one of my match ups and they had done the exact samecaptaincy decisions. As me, si was projected about sort of twenty orthirty more for basically the whole week and we both vs mccray, and then he had left his cat and see onbrandy, and i had a feeling. Grandy was going to go big and i didn't want himto be the reason that i lost. So i also captain grandy, which obviously didn'tgo well long story short ramble got ninety panet had of him and didn'treally expect him to get ninety, so that didn't help and just everythingsort of went against me. He ended up beating me by twelve points because ladsort of just stopped in his last quarter. He was on track for a hundredand twenty and got a hundred and four salem was on track for fifty. For mypoint n, you got eighty six and then obviously bont and daniel failed toturn up. So that's what costed me and i lost that game, but i won my other two.So that's all right, but basically for me the situation is i'm currently outside the top ai inthose two leagues, but i'm probably going to be overtaking them, as i think,like the teams ahead of me, are the one went ahead but like they're playingeach other in both legs and i've got a better percentage, so i should just getinto finals for all my leagues, but will be interesting to see. Obviouslywith that roll in marshall news is kind of screwed. On my trades i was gonna be getting him this week and thefinal up grade next week, but i've got to just basically flip that bring in aforward this week around the fourth four thirty four four came mark andthen marshal next week go down to zero trades like pilch, buti've got some good bench cover, but like bramble and cade whitman, awaterman bianco and all that on the bench so should be all right, obviously famous last words there but yeah. I wasn't great this week, but itwasn't disastrous. I'm sure the people did worse so i'll be looking on to next week. Hartlycan rise back into that top trek, yeah pilch. How d you go yeah, as we've said, ran out of tradeslast week, langford dusty, whitfield mills, kelly, crips jesus, so a score o tonton hundred went fromrank eight hundred down to sixteen hundred so the rankings out of thewindow. Now i think i'm actually still like top to you all my legs, but got no trade. So i'm not not winningany of my legs either. So i think come it. Just might just have a look at my draft team.Actually, this week haven't looked at that one since before ran one, so i do mi get some i've actually just sayingthat you went big cork, so you've been looking at that one aven't now, so imight just go i'm on it. I'm a weapon at draft because i'm the only one heplays yeah. So so i'll just go back when the draft leg and they now she'llbe right, but no, i don't think i'm in the top aght. Last week, ah i playedjunior. We only have ten players so there's asolid center in the top. A at like i look passy and i just dunkley onthe waves fuckin you fiting nessi yeah, so i've be i've been dealing witha lot of cheese like that. So i'm a chance, i'm i'm not even first, thoughi think i'm like third, i think roy...

...might be ahead of me. I think i justlooked at my drop leg. I've had took miller on the bench all year for blakeacres, james row, bottom exception and field. So that's a deal and but it yeah if one person doesn't play,though you like automatically get supped on so you've, probably been. I been around most weeks but yeah, fairenough. That does hurt in terms of trade for me this week justquickly, i cannot believe not picking up lucky bramble has legit like hurt meas much as it has like. It was just a matter. If i didn't have a do a downgrade the week, he was on the bubble, otherwise i would have got in but yeahthat hurts for me. I'm just going dusty to asideways forward. My doin second trade because high marsout this week and he's pretty expensive. So i might trade him, but then i'm downto one so we'll see about that. But i don't really want to have b anchor andberty on my field because that's at least one guaranteed twenty, maybe two,so that wouldn't be nice, so yeah probably going to have to do the twotrades and just be stuck with one. But it's a bit scary in covin times whenanyone can go out at any minute for like two week period or something soyeah we'll see we'll see yeah it's all over. For me, you guys had a bitdefeated yourselves roy still in the leagues. So as pilch but pill, truckingis done, but we'll check back in next week and see how we're all faring righttime for a round. Nineteen preview there's a couple games, so we don'tknow where they are or if they're be going to happen, but we will still doour tips, but we don't have like a line for them, so i might just make one upand we can go from there. Well, also just go through the linesfor the other games and tip. According to that. I were dealing with a bit of adelay, so just bear with us, but we'll be patient here. So first up we haveport collingwood, as i mentioned, not sure if it's going to be happening, butlet's give it a line of port put the favorites: let's go, let's sace at the adelaide oval andlet's say eighteen points. This is hard bingamaneighteen points for our you going water hollywood, probably just port yeah yeah. The venuematters way too much to even think about this, but yeah pil, yeah yeah. If it was at the lad over thenport yeah yeah, fair of well to skip it becauseyeah, it's too it's too big of a change. If it's a different venue can't northcome other favorites the lines, a e at le six and a half which to me is quiteinteresting. I have no idea where this is being played to be truthful. I roywho you back moment. Okay, there you go at the myris marvel, i don't mind nothere actually, but i it's a top a game where i reckon ofthey're going to show up, but i can call mice get the job done. An yan likeharry wices, kicker for in yoshu ear it up this usual proceedingsfor carton, piltra, yeah, carton, yeah, i'm goin to back calm. I do haveto say, though north looked so good in the first half of yensen, are theywhich is moving the ball so fast, his so many targets, they'd. Just like tornthomas arnhall zevi, just lurking around, hitting bombs hitting blokechess, but ye anyway far find it north brusie goal coast thecla. I believethey called last one was a blow out, wasn't it it was like eighty points orsomething, but cocus are a better side. Now we like to think anyway. However,the line is pretty large. Twenty seven and a half in favor of the lines roy. Who are you backing? I don't mind the son's thet for theline actually think we saw brisband sort of sort of struggle to adjust to lifeafter ericaulon is obviously not a huge name, but i think, he's obviously a keypiller of that ford line and obviously the sons tested the dogs there. So iactually don't mind the sons down on the line i'll be tipping brisbin butare in the sons might make it close to yeah i'm going to go the sun's justbecause i i'm going with the heart, the yeah i as go ahead. If i was goingahead, i'd actually save brisben. There is at a gaba, so that'll be. I can picture brisbinputting on a statement. Victory like snapping there right a bad form, i'mgoing to go the suns just because that's a pretty big margin but yeah, ifeel like gold coast...

...back line will be suited to brisbineven like without hippotus, because they only really have collins andballad so yeah. It shouldn't be too noticeable that they're one tall downbut yeah, we'll see but i'll back the suns in the line west coast and killedoff. This is one in perth. I actually doknow that, so this is going to be an interestinggame. West coast, probably the most unpredictable team, the comp right now,you could actually argue at saint kilda as well. The line is thirteen and ahalf west coast are the favorites ither one will go west coast just because idon't know why it's in perth roy? What about you offer too will go with moveon now, i'm going since you sang for the win as well or o theoutset, as wellnigh pole, yeah right next one, we went bother theline because it didn't really work with polo like game, an alad hawhorn if theywere to play. Let's just say, let's say: gets moved to goal coast if they playmetrico, who you tipping rose. That's a very tough one, actually, no huge class. Sixteen first seveneight, but i see a couple weeks got satellite butthey've been yeah abolly ho a few poor weeks and hawton just took it up to thedays. So i one actually back the hawks to get this one. I think they're in ayou know they play all right, obviously all right against the des, but yeah, probably just back at hawks tilt yeah. You have, you have to say hawksat the moment on form, yeah yeah. I agree with that. I probably tip them atany venue on. If i was in amaladis go out of laid on the head to head, but i'd say theline would be in favor of adelaide anyway, so i'd go hawks to cover it,but yeah back in the hawks and surely they are so means because i know lastweek they were down some troops in the back line anyway, while i think scrimsback this week, just that's one of them anyway. Thenthe big game of the round. Well, i guess the grand final re match is alsopretty sizeable, but the des versus the dogs once again nauty weather's being playedroe. Do you know where it is? I don't know where it is i'll. Have alook for you probably going to go the days o me just they just have thatalways get in over the good side. I don't think it's at the g, but yeah, i'm going to say the daysthere yep pitch melds number one fanny back in your boys in again yeah hundred percent melbourne. Theybade all the good teams petrak and the bon best two plays in the com. Petrarchis the one informed at the moment so definitely days, spicy spicy there'll be a lot of talkabout that match up for sure i'll go. The doggies liver comes back in makes ahuge difference. They only they looked faltering in the first half of thatgame on the weekend, and it's because they didn't have libarium s back in hehas dirty clearances, gets gets, gets you jane, is a hundred a hundred and fifty and to go to point soi'm back, and then the dogs, why not? Maybe they cover the spread and melonwind head to head the old, the old line of one and a half sydney frio line is twenty two and ahalf quite sizable in the other favorites tough one, tough one bro who you goinhere sidney to yeah, you probably have to say side, it's actually kind of a hard one. There i did you kick full plus spicy sposerodo actually shanda o ma, alex pies, yeah and frees. Defense is obviouslyunder man. I think i sin you got a kick a lot against them. Yeah. I tell youwhat alex peers had a crack against jong, but it was struggling out there. You couldtell it olen still keep in five or something, but your is really strung. No, i can at a stinker, though, likethere was one point where legit ga way: three free, we three free kicks in thespace of like four minutes. I was like everything he was doing was just notgone right, but yeah felt bad from now. I just feel bad for him because he'sinjury locks been so bad and i just i cling on to that year. He was like anaustralian contention when he snapped his leg, but a anyway that was a longtime ago, yeah back in the wanes, even though frear bit of e oo team, so theycould bounce back and have a contest. I think city'll win and yeah. Well backthem in to winby twenty two and a half...

...estens. I don't think we know anythingabout this game. Actually i don't don't think we know where it is. What time itis. What date is, if i'm not mistaken, but we'll just go head to head here,i'm going to back in the bombers. I just think they're in better form, roi yeah a bomb is to l. We saw thatwithout taberna giant, so obviously just a different teams like saintswithout the right combo, so young, i go the pomes, yeah pilch giants these backing to be fair. They go up tothat. They do this soul. Yeah i was. I was on the edge of i say it to be fair.They do actually when, when you least expected be yeah, i don't know why. Ifeel, like north actually played really well on the weekend eric and they wouldhave been most teams, but i didn't watch the second are, so i can't reallytalk. Grafin rematch, don't know where thisis i'd. Guess it's in july, but with ovid could be anywhere jolon other favorites. The line issixteen and a half. I'm not. I don't know what to say roy.Who are you going? It's tough, because don't i really knowhow tien are spoi that dusty? Sorry, i want just guy the cats pouch. I think this game is actually at the g a and, as a result, i'm going to gowith the tigs. As i saw on twitter chris scott email, the a fl trying toget it changed to simmons and he got a knock back just the audacia. Would you have said,like a dear gillin, we get dogged every year. Yeah we twi annals at the g, so ever call see it's called fuckingcher was it called the cattery, the cattery i'll back in richmond i'll,say to long wind by fourteen, and that means richmond with the line so yeah ifeel like richmond and bush is on because of the dusty emission, but ijust think jolon in to sic. I trust them too much to lose the game, but ithink it won't be a big margin and sixteen and a half s pretty sizeableagainst tied to the g, but that's it for week. Nineteen another greatepisode for those who had money on fifty fourminutes. Orosi you win, you win. The bet well played could have been somematch, fixing in there you've muted yourself, but we'll just pretend you tt there could have been match fixing there. We don't know, that's that'sshocking for for me. What are you going to say, i was gonna, say o o yeah in a line for the length of theepisode at yeah. Well played to you, the expert better got a few multis upon the weekend. Did you profit overall? Did the losses outweigh the profits? Oh,i know yeah. I think i chucked in ten. I sortof cashed in at one one o, those hundred thirty so i'll definitely takeit, but it was at one and sixty or seventy one point. I was sitting in thegarage on saturday night. I lost all my saint support lanes and hawks melbournone, and i i you know i was at one seventy. Iwas down to a hundr that, while this a shit, so i put like a dollar on likefive horses in one race in island at the pounce, a cura so that it was raceone of a day it was five rufus. In now i cut onedoor on each of them and one of the fifty one dollar rods came stalling,hose ranked fifty one dollars there so got the account got in again, but yeahwith true hundred on nales handy paid for a bit of petrol. So definitely takethat. I think what was his name. I was a carrory one. It was where's that lovely horse at storm him.It was john, the baptist on the a carrara ones. I go on him. Ilow drown the baptist well good black pit. Did you have any success in themultis on the weekend? No ma, i haven't put a multiordinal ina in a short while so, and hopefully it stays that way. Probably won't staythat way, but no there to be fair. Actually provided me with someentertainment rosi sending through his he slips. I got i calmed the you seeall the green ticks, it's just great. It's great. It is arcanum. Good tacitosis brown on a in just deposit like a hundred a hundred and fifty and justchuck on, like fifteen different things. That's why it last year was great fun.Yeah as you actually like, it's all...

...happened, so it's a really good chanceto get now. What do you guy? You guys always do the multi with every clubswinter though, and you always get too wrong- it's like no, no it it'simportant like last year. I let you can literally do a player in the content topola vote. My nick heine was like best on against siddy one game and for thewhole year, just a pile of itu was like two dollars fifty, so i shot like fiftybucks on it and it up on so yeah. Definitely a good tactic. A lotof i've got a future on at the moment about turf look park at a finished toptwenty in the brown low got it for three dollars. Twenty five earlier inthe year, it was looking bad, but he's actually started playing well again,the last few weeks, so he might be a sniff. I don't even hate that becausethey've one a lot of games- and i don't really know who would pick up theirvotes- milles- has been better about the umpires. True, probably preferparker because he's the big name yeah and the also got care if you chop ityeah i've also got george artist presas and put five dollars on him, and theodds have already halved so will be collecting that at the end of the yearas well, it's beautiful lit like a rising star.Are you goin to cash out, or do you actually think he's going to wet? Ohhe's got it in his back pocket. We can't tell i serious or not so i sawyou tweet, but i reckon y actually should win the only blokes a head of him. Jordan,jackson and tom grain yeah. You've just named three block, give it to the yeah,but like do they deserve it. Tom gray's, like twenty six hours he elgie.Actually i cat like not convinced but yeah anyway fit lay and i'll backin james jordan, so player there top. I think him and mitha the top two yeah.So no george ars is a good play, will be a gun all right! That's enough!Drigge! For today i reckon boys we've been out finest of dribbling fashion. I'm still just looking at the tips andjust going through it there. Some of absolutely stump me there, but i'dthrow me for a real one, were actually gone right on a arroive match fixed itfor you perfectly, but well then good luck, support andsay killed up this weekend. Hopefully they both get up wherever port play,whoever they play and say cold against the weagle. Everyone will be going forthem because everyone hates west coast, good lick and seven coach as well. Ihope you beat me roy cause. You know, there's a quite to bewinning really kind. Amazing, now yeah well with the greatest respect it'spaying about a dollar or six, maybe maybe that's even genis, like no backcoming up against alex bolt or something and real one brakes and notat the alsoe at the at the bell. Grater, it's just not even a chance but yeahthanks for jonnie wiver, no back or man no m. But all these a beast inaustralia tell me bolts that got a chair to bill grade when he's beingabused and serving but yeah absolute druse'll be back next week.Thanks for treating in takes join me, lads enjoy lock down today, safe, goteam gb actually in the olympics and australia anyway.
