All right, good day guys,welcome back to on the ball. As you'd say, Heymish isn't here today. It's just mean rowy dissecting round twenty of the footy and also round twentyone at the end other way. Firstly, what rounds is gone? Nineteen around, wrong rock round. Yeah, you didn't tell where in the we'rein the head space for this one, but yeah, ran nineteen round twenty. How I may, and can you give us a bit of insight onwhere the saying is, how the saying is went and how they stand?Ye, not been topic. No, I'm I'm right watching a lot ofOlympics of the moment, so sort of tried to vot my attention away fromthe footage just because I'm a saint support of the moment. It's probably ourfirst loss of the season where I'm you know, we come away. We'renot, you know, burning our memberships. It was one of Coulton's, let'ssay, honorable, not honorable, losses. Still, obviously you wouldhave loved to get the win there. We definitely could have won that game, but look, at the end of the day we've had a lot worsesources this year. It's probably that year where I'm yeah, this isn't oneof the ones that we're going to you know, we're going to sulk about. So, yeah, it's over. It's not great because, as whenyou have to, when you're in this mindset of following a loss, whenyou're not all that negative, but the same time it's nice to not wantto kill myself come Wednesday and you know that you're you're about to have togo through another week and watching again. Yeah, and a huge, hugebreakout game from Maxie King, finally showing that he probably is the best,well best prospect in that super draft arguably. Yeah, we'll go through. willgo through around nineteen. If you done like winners and losers or yes, I've got about for winners and fall loses. Jot to down here,calls run through him. If yeah, actually, yeah, you kick itoff. Kick it off with couple winners to easy. So I'll kick itoff with North Melbourne over the blues. This was great to see, consideringI think a lot of fans, like myself, like to see cult andfail, given we've been on the same sort of path for me a yearnow. So it's great see North Get up and just sort of show thatthey're they're not the worst side of the competition like Sid they're they're not goingto be the worst side of the April's, ever, seems what many people dubthem to be prior to the year. They do have a lot of youngtalent that's coming through and you know, they've also been able to transform afew of their players. So we've seen Tara Thomas who probably, youknow it was, probably got three votes in the weekend, or at leastyou know at least got one, with twenty three touches, five tackles andfour goals. That is an absolutely dominated domination in the midfield there. Sohe was in that super draft that we often talk about. We don't reallytalk about him. It's definitely about time we start talking about it. Butwith a man, the tour part was none of them is South Laky.He actually managed to rack up twenty as well, so it wasn't just cherrypicking them out the goal square. So obviously bag seven. He begs alot more at the lucky cock and I saw him last but so he wasawesome for them. Aaron halls obviously been a revelation of half back for them. He was a out standing again, and it was just the life of, you know, Cunnington, Simpkin, all these balls in the midfield thatjust got the job done for them. The dogs as well, big winover the day's, you know, end of the day's run against top eightteams. It was probably, you know, be able to come to it endat some stage. So it was good to see the dogs get awin there. You know, I think a few people have been a littlebit skeptical, you know, the past on a month or two. Arethey like, you know, I top two team? Like what are they? Are they just, you know,...

...just a finals team and all thatodd sorry, no, just a top four teams probably more sensible way ofsaying it. But they they stem cells is probably, you know, toptwo teams in the comp so there was a really soul performance by them.No better time to peek than just four finals and coming to finals. Sovery handy with for them the cats as well. Over, Richmond didn't succumbto the pressure of playing type of Richmond that everyone, you know, halfto suspect did to actually get up because, you know, we all know whorichmond are what they can do. So good on the cats for gettingthe job done when they need to, and also the giants keeping their finalshopes alive against the bombers. Massive win there. They seem there they'd bea very frustrated team to follow, the giants. So there's not many peoplewe can ask about that. But you know they they seem to. Theymake it very hard for themselves in terms of their season, especially this year. You know they've they've lost a lot of easy ones or even draw inthat one against north. Then then they win these top ones when they reallyreally need to. So it's a bit of heart and mouth situation for them, but it's good to seeing them get up. Yeah, I think theyare. Bombers and giants are probably the top two most frustrating sides if you'rea fan of those sides. But good to see Nick Larky getting things doneon Chapel Street. I think cane corns said earlier in the season that northwere the worst sight of all time or something. So he was coming someenough. He was coming some abuse on twitter, like he always does.Don't think many people got more abuse than he does, but he needed canecorns, given your a port fan. Yeah, well, I don't hatehim because he's a port legend, so I'll just kind of but I'll stayout the way. I don't back him up because he does make some shitcalls, but very sensible there. Yeah, but to be fair, our respect. They doesn't give a fact what people think and he just just makesall the are controversial calls. Little bit of respect there for it. Butyeah, didn't get to watch the Melbourne bulldogs game unfortunately. Family movie nightthat night. But yeah, I expected the days to win that. Sothat's throwing a spanner in my ladder predictions, which will get to in a bit. But yeah, quite a few big results. The SWANNE's as well. They're looking really good. I'm actually worried about port dropping out a sixthnow because of them. But yeah, we'll see. We'll move on tosome loses. You can kick it off again. Yep, beauty. Soyet one same game, is it? Wait, these are all pretty muchthe same games actually, apart from maybe one of them. So Carlton wasobviously a huge, hugely say this weekend probably the biggest one. They justdidn't they just thought Nah, now we're not playing finals this year. Whocan have a crank next year? They just didn't turn all, I meanlots of it was effort. On the weekend it was, you know,remnants of what I'd seen from St Kilda earlier in the year and I thinkthey particularly pointed out one goal. I can remember who it was or whatcourt it was, but colon were just the defenders were just walking. Ithink they ended up having, you know, like the north player just walk throughlike three plays. was about fifty out and they nd up kicking thegoal. But nor arm cold just look disinterested and didn't look like they wantedto show any fight. So definitely not promising for them, given that theywere, you know, if they won this game, they they won thisweekend. There were, you know, there were being whispers about finals chancespotentially coming to fruition, but apparently not. They just didn't look look like showingup. There's only about four or five blokes over twenty touches, whichis just never a good sign. They got beaten in all stats around theground basically. So they just got dominated by the eighteen team of the competition. So yeah, I'm not sure how this is going to fair and thereview, but it's just on to next year. For Carlton. It justsomething that they've been. Sorry, they're just some of the fans have beensaying for the last sort of eight nine years, so it's unfortunate for them, but yeah, they're obviously a big loss. Around the weekends Gold Coastas well, I think, who did...

...have a massive opportunity to upset Brisbane, which were not only calls upsets in the top eight, but just,you know, give themselves sense of pride, to sense of complishment we've toppled overone of the big teams and competition that we've got a huge rivalry against. They were they had a very sizeable margin. I think it was fiftythree to twenty four at one point and sixty two thirty three, so itended up being, you know, fifty point loss, you know, whichis a huge turn around and I think it's now got to the point where, look at this, if this continues into next season where gold coaster arefading in the second half of not just seasons but games, then it's obviouslya real worry these guys that they are still young but they're getting older.So really want to see some improvement for them because I was pretty disappointing Richmondas well. You know, obviously the lost dusty, but you know,if they threw Shay in the middle there, he was shocking for not only supercoach but just impact on the game. It was no good in their where. They just did look like they have any spark. Richmond. Ithink it's now actually coming to the time where I think we are starting tolose, you know, we are staying to just about say look, theRichmond that we all know is probably gone now. They just, you know, they just they just didn't look like themselves. You know, it's likewhen you play sport when you have a cold, you just don't feel likeyourself. I think this was like them and obviously I think the bombers aswell just completely shot any chances they had to make in the eight. Ithink there's still a chance, but they would have had to have won thatone on Sunday to make it a legitimate chance. Now it's just a bitof a bit of a fluke if they make it. But yeah, theyhad a they should have won that gay. You know, they on paper they'dprobably, you know, a lot better than the giants. But yeah, unfortunately couldn't quite get it done. And that's it's not it's not alldoom and gloom for them because this was, sends to be, a rebuild seasonand they have already excited expectations. Got A lot of the young talentcoming through, a lot of is probably the team in the competition that have, you know, switch the magnets around, the boast and said succeeded. Theygot a lot of new players new positions. But yeah, nonetheless,still a disappointing result and we can for them given what they could have achieved, but the end of the day, probably not as bigger loss it isthe other other three, just given where we expected their season to be.But yeah, yeah, for me I'd probably say the bombers were the biggestlosers, just given the implications on fine was. But, as you said, they've well sixty expectations just to be your bombers, sing to do,to get the fans hopes up year in, year out, and then choke atthe end. But yeah, well, was I yeah, I was goingto bring up this. I don't know if this has happened too muchrecently, but as a saints Fan, if you find yourselves, like youknow, out of the race of finals a few weeks before the end,do you start like going for lost? Do it like do you want?You want to see them lose with draft picks on the line, or areyou still going for them? We can week out, I you see you. Look, it's if if you're a team around the saints range, whereit's like you know you're either going to get pick five or six or seven. Now I don't just go for the winds. Look, you want toattract you don't want to you're not going to attract it. First of all, it's not just draft picks getting in the club, it's players you're tryingto attract. It's going to be very hard to attract players if your tankingas a club, because that could well go into following seasons and at theend of the day there's nothing to say that pig files canny better than picksix or seven. We all know that. You know some of the best pickscome in like the s and the s of what's we've seen in theseredrafts. So No, I personally wouldn't say it's like round twenty three andyou're lost and you want to lose. Yeah, exactly. You like you'relike you know you need to lose by like a certain amount. I wouldlike to tell the players. Look, just give the young boys a go, see how they go this week and if we, you know, ifwe caught, the big loss of means...

...to get pick one. If wedon't, then, like you know, it shows young boys shine. Butyeah, that's probably only situation where I'd say look, you know, justit will try a few things around, it probably won't work, but we'llcop pick one. That's the only time I would because apart from that,and it's like securing pick one, I just I don't see. I thinkhe can have more disaster to effects because then you you look at like thewhole sort of media side of it, in the club image and all that, and if you are really sort of shown up for, you know,taking it's it almost created a flow on effects with the whole AFL and multitudeof teams would start doing it's probably like diving in the soccer how that happened. You know, one bloke did it, you know, got free kick goal. Every team started doing and every plays it now, tapping every game. So now I'd be I'd be wanting us to have a crack every game. Yeah, I completely agree. They're all right. Or I can wedo our pretty good top eights. And then, and then also, Ireckon, we go premiers and runners up as well, just to add abitter spice. So I'll kick off with my top eight. My top fourhas changed around a lot actually after that bulldogs game. So I've got tolong on top and bulldogs second, and I've got port third. I've actuallydone my ladder prediction on the fell website so that that that little thing involvesUS beating the dogs in round twenty three, which obviously might not happen. Butand I've got the D's in fourth because if they they've got to playthe cats at Simmons, the Eagles in Perth and I think one other relatively, you know, tough one, and we've seen that they can drop gamestoo pretty much anyone. So I think if they, if they drop oneor two more, they could see themselves all the way down at forth.But I still believe they're genuine contenders. And then I got brizzy Sydney WestCoast and tigs reckon. They'll sneaking. and Premier is, I'll go nonbiased. I'll go geelong. Premier is Brisbane runners up. All like that. Few people are starting to jump off the bridge vand wagon. I knowthey just got up over the suns, but it's the form hasn't been thelast few weeks. I see interesting. But I did this the other dayas well and good for entire read sent me his so I thought I'd returnthe favor. So I've got so I did every game from here. SoI've got the dogs in it finishing on top. I've got the cats inits second, the D's at third and the Lions at fourth. And thenI've just got Sydney pipping port on percentage percent one point five. Well,one point five. It's all the ports losses to top eight teams. Wegot flow of its Ay. That was it, but Sidney and them port, then Richmond and west coast. I think I've got Richmond. Yeah,I've got richmon ahead of west coast. So I still I think. Look, they are a chance to win all the games coming up. They're probablygoing to be. This is this is going to be the toughest game oftheir games coming up and it's against Free Oh, it optus Freo. Obviouslynow have walters and fiferet. So there with our stars as well. Youknow, if you look at the firepower of the Tigers up for, weknow it, Jack and Lynch. No, down back you've just got the troopsand in the midfield, you know you still the likes of Edwards,Lambert Bolton, all right. So I think I think the Tigers were toomuch there. And then they've after that they've got North Melbourne, which youhope they get the job done over, gws, which will obviously be atight one, and then Hawthorne. So they've bought some very windable games comingup. Hence why they've hence why they're in there. But my premiers aregoing to end up being I'm going to have a long bulldogs grand final,just what I came up with, and I've got the cats just pipping themin probably most years. Neutral friends wouldn't...

...want the cats to win, youknow, I think I think most people obviously don't like the cats did.If there's ever a year for them to win it, I'd have it bethis year. You know there's probably going to be their last shot at it. All their guns coming to the probably the end of their careers. Sothere's ever a year for them to win, it can be this year. Ithink I think all most us will take that, but yeah, thatbe a cracking grand final and to be in better fils of the G Soo. Thinkers crossed with Covid and all that. But yeah, why? Yeah,my top eight, one hundred percent. I think the cats. Pains meto say it, but I think they're deserved premiership favorites at the momentand peaking. And Yeah, it's all the catsling there. Yeah, exactlyright. They've put they've been peeking since since they're round. I lost toAdelaide. They've been unbelievable since then. But yeah, yeah, hopefully someone, someone knocked him off. But yeah, all right, we'll we'll do ournext ra drafts. So this week we're up to two thousand and ten. So or going to be redrafting the two thousand and ten draft. Anothertough one. The players are getting pretty old. We're getting into the dinosaurages with these ones, but not sure how anymore we can do. Yeah, I mean I want to get to two thousand and six just so Ican. So I'll be loved to to the port, the port lads,but you can go first. Mate. Kick US off. If your honorablementions or just top ten. I do have honorable mention. Soul I'll listthem off first very quickly. So I've got the numb one drop pick fromthat year and there David swallow of the verse, Very Coolly Engineer, toMcDonald, Paul Steedsman, Brody Smith, Jamie creeps, Jeremy How they're thehonorable mentions I've got written down. At number ten. I'm going to kickus off with jared lion to who his career didn't really go off to agreat start. It's only really what he's done Brisbane which has been huge forthem and he's very much one of the reasons why they're now obviously being,you know, premiership contenders will last four years. It hasn't just been luckynel on that midfield lines has been doing a lot of the bulk work inthere. If you take him out of that midfield it's actually a bigger holeand I think people realize to fill and because, you know, he's justthe standard twenty five touches, you know, truck load of tackles. So yeah, if you take him out of that, all the pressure goes toNeil and there's no one else really could throw in there you can properly,properly rely on. I don't think so, while it is only while, heis only really beat in there, based on what he's done in bridgeat Brisbane, I still think it's worthy enough because I still because I thinkI'm going to also going to factor in the next few years. I thinkyou'll obviously probably been the same player for the next, you know, coupleof years and while Brisbane going for that premiership. So I think, youknow, if we if we count for the next two years coming up,he's going to have one of the biggest impacts out of all these guys onthis list. So a number nine, I've got cam go three. Obviouslyprobably having a career best year, but he's just been a soldier for thewhole time it's been itch along. Doesn't have like a big regement or anything. He's barely got anything on it, but he's just being a quality playerfor this long. We all know that. So you know, to be tobe a mainstay in a delong line up for it's over ten years,that's definitely worthy of a spot on this list. And Number Eight, I'vegot Tom Liberatory. Obviously Premiership wenter. got a few more than the resumefor him, but obviously hasn't been like a standout star midfielder. He's beena, you know, very good and excels in some parts of the gamethat lots of people sometimes don't tend to recognize. You know, you cansometimes walk away from a game thinking yeah, liver played all right, but youlook at it starts is actually really good, you know, as acontested base in there, but often overshadowed by likes a bottom. Mccrae isprobably hurt his ability to finish, you know, really high up and predominantlyclub awards as well as, you know, Brownlow metals. So I brently knowfinishing up in the brownlow tally. But yeah, he's still, what'smy mainstay in that dogs twenty two and...

...you know we know the quality ofthat team, especially it's been field, so would be in there. Isdefinitely worthy of being on this list as well. And a number seven orwhat, three time premiership player, Isaac Smith. It's about the only thing, you know, he's really got going, apart from the fact that, youknow, he's been a one of the legend Winmen of the game.so He's been huge for the Hawks and he's obviously, you know, provingto be a very vital player for the cats as well. They obviously lackeda bit of speed, bit of ball use the cats, I think lastyear and probably started this year when they were playing that sort of slow,boring style. The footage. I think spiss really helped them there. Sohe's finishing off his career nicely. He's not sort of you know, he'snot sort of turning over and just, you know, all limping together inhis career. He's having a really, really strong impact. So that's thereason why I've got him this high. But yeah, obviously contributed to thosethree premierships of the Hawks, so that's definitely he's definitely worthy to be inhere. Number six down press, you are another three time premiership player.You know it's been a very sold player for Gold Coast then for Richmond comingover. He's finished pretty high up in most best and fair seasons when he'sbeen fit and he's brought you know he's an Australian quality player, but youknow it's been hard for him to getting in there just mainly because his bodyjust doesn't hold up. But when feeling is a very solid player in there, anomber five dors and Heppel. He's probably one of those players that haven'tthat has, you know, comes the end of his career a little bit. Well, you know he's he's not having the same impact as he wantsused to have. I think lots of the these guys on here are stillhaving a similar impact. You know, I would have dipped a little.HEPPLE's obviously gone down a lot, but it's also because that role change.You know, he's gone to half back to let that excellent midfield that thebombs have got going for them. But you know that's it's still a veryvital role for the bombers. Day provides a lot of leadership down there andjust around the club as well. You often forget how good of a playerDos and Heppal was. He's an absolute animal for Essen and back of theday in the midfield with the flowing dreadlocks. He's got a lot more, alot more on the region way than I first saw when I had tolook at it. So yeah, he's definitely worthy of a top five kickhere. Number Four I've got Jack Darling for West Coast. Obviously been hugeplayer for them alongside Kennedy. Like you know, we always talked about howportant tool forwards are and you know it's one of the reasons why is thishigh up. Obviously twenty eighteen premiership as well. Nearly nearly cost of themin the last sort of minute or two when he dropped that sidered in frontof the goals. But now he's been a very important player for them andyou know, without him most of the folks is on Kennedy and not surehow far they would have gone with them with just him by himself. Anumber three, got another Eagle and Andrew Gaff obviously being a quality woman forso many years now. You know couple Australians. You just know what you'regoing to get from him. You know he can easily rack up thirty touches. I know they pretty cheap, but you know you've got to respect someonethat can put in all the hard guards as he can. You know hecan run all day and, like I said, you know he played twentytwo games for every season. So He's been an absolutely quality played for thema lot of high finishes, excuse me, in their best and fairest and yeah, like I said, you know he's been an absolutely mainstain such asuccessful eagles outfit for so many years. Number two I've got your super coach, non favorite, Luke Parker. He's obviously been an absolute animal for theswans for so many years now, such a gun to watch. He's obviouslyslowly coming to the end of his career and, you know, letting theyoung boys starts have a bit more of an impact, but he's been sogood for them over the years. You know, obviously being APPs all Australian'sreally high finishes beings when you haven't one of them and just an absolute lateraround the club. So he's just he's been one of the pigs of thisdraft. I think it was like late. I think it's sort of around forty. So that was an upslut steal. But number one, it's got togo one of my least favorite players in Tom Lynch. But unfortunate Ican't pass it up. He's you know, he's not only the best all forthis draft, but you know he's...

...probably, you know, it's probablya best player. You know he's got a really good reagion. MASE obviouslyplaying a couple of premierships. Now I've got think it's got a colon medalin him. A couple of Australians. It's just you know, I knowhe's he's probably had better days when he was a gold coast and he usedto kick a few bags of six and stuff, but and at the momentyou know he's probably kicking a few but yeah, the bags come a littlebit less often for him now. But at the same time, you knowhe's contributed to to premierships and you know he's still been a very, very, very good play for Gold Coast in Richmond over the years. We knowhow important to all forwards are and he's, you know, carried Gold Coast teamfor so long in terms of converting goals. He's doing the same Richmondnow alongside Jack's. That's been very handy for them. So to have thatto problem attack in Richmond is just made them unstoppable for those couple of yearsand was probably worthy this done one spot just because of how important all forwardsare. Light harder to come by. But yeah, unfortunately I'M gonna haveto round it off with Tom Lynch because, yeah, I think he's just gotto be a number one for me. Yeah, yeah, fair enough.I'm my list is pretty similar. I've got one change in that.Jared lines is my eleventh man and I went with Jeremy how that was atoss up, but I just think how has been an elite player in hisposition for a number of years. So yeah, that was that was atough one, but yeah, so I've got Jeremy how a number ten,great defender, loves a hangar. Has had trouble with injuries. Would potentiallybe higher on the list if he hadn't, but either way he's a he's agun and I think he's he coming back this week, or is thatjust I'm not a whole hundred percent swhere? I saw something about his return,but that could be wrong. If I probably dressed until next year.But actually you'd think so. You'd think so. Number Nine, Cam guffree. He's kind of similar to jared lins. Just been a role player, probablya little bit better in a better team, but the last two seasonshe's absolutely broken out and became an absolute weapon all Australian last season and I'msure I'll have a number more elite years ahead of him. Number Eight,Deon pressed here. I think he's kind of overrated just because of his premierships. I think there's a lot of a lot of other midfielders that are betterthan him on this list. He has struggled with injuries as well, whichis a bit stiff. But number seven, I've actually Gone Andrew Gaff I've justgiven the nod basically to the to the inside midfielders over the wingmen inthis case, and I don't like him because of what he did to breaksure, but can't, can't, can't judge his ability on that. Butyeah, he's obviously gone. As you said, been one of the mostconsistent players for like the last six years. Number six, dyson HEPP will extremelyunderrated. Was a gun midfield off for like four years in a rowand would have been five if it didn't have to miss two thousand and fifteenor whatever, twenty thirteen or whatever it was because of the that saga.But yet underrated gun and his body's probably worn down a bit over the lastcouple of years, which is why I is moved to halfback, but he'sstill a weapon and one of their best players. Number Five, I've actuallygone libber. I just think what he brings to the table is really uniqueand not many players out there can do it. He's just an absolute clearancebeast and an underrated player because of that we've seen. When you take himout of the dogs midfield, they kind of they struggle with the clearances,especially considering that don't have a good Ruckman. so He's been a key component thereand obviously one a premiership number for Jack Darling. I actually I writehim quite highly. He's got an Australian...

...as well, key forward, sohe's got to be right up there. And then three, of Gone IsaacSmith. This is purely because of his team accolades. I mean he hasbeen a gun wingman for like ten years, but he's like a better version ofBrad Hill. But yeah, three flags in a row. Not muchmore you can ask for. Number two, I've actually swapped him. I've GoneLynch at too. He's arguably more valuable than Parker, but I don'tknow. Luke Park has just been an absolute gun for them. Is wona flag numerous best and Fairis just gunn midfielder who can impact the score boardas well, which not many other midfielders can do for like the last eightto nine years. So I think he's deserving of the number one spot.But yeah, overall, pretty good draft class to be honest. Yeah,that was a tough one. Yeah, very solid. It was very Solaround the board. I think the honorable mentions a very stiff nor to getin there. You know, look at the likes of, like I saidto MC Donald, Paul Steedsman, Brody Smith, Jamie Crooks, like youknows, coops. Yeah, premiers, your player in there, and youknow the all the others have been very close to it as well. Imean they've all played grand finals, except for team at but he's playing thePRELIMP. So yeah, it's that one was a very tough one. Iwas very even across the board, but agree with you on the Parker one. Could definitely have not one. He's been absolute based for him. Yeah, I'd a soft spot for him as well as a swan's man, andI just I love the way it goes about it. And, as hesaid, we all hate Tom Lynch, so he can even take a backseat in my rankings. But yeah, all right, will will actually doinga all go will do sober coach, I've been dreading this, but I'llthink I noticed you had a decent weight this week, so we'll let youkick it off with how you went. Yeah, well, I was,you know, I'd had a shocking like like previous few weeks. So itwas nice to go okay, as when two hundred and seventy seven had usedto trades are climbed in the rank. So back up into two thousand eighthundred and thirty nine, so back into the top K. want to probablytry and keep that, but I've now got no trades left to me.He is my last one to go. Coleman Jones up to Roller Marshall andcody goes onto the bench. So finally I've got no one in this teamunder hundred K. So you know, I've got likes of Bick Haynes andBolton, the two porus players by far in this team. Park from thatit's basically all premo. So happy with that. But yeah, in termsof how a week went, really happy the likes of Daniel and Whitfield basedmy whole defense, apart from Haynes tummed up, which was handy, veryhandy. On nail the Captaincy to on the Craig getting one hundred and fortysix obviously stink. With Grundy on on the night game against Port I wasso angry about that because he had like twenty something touches smash of Hitouts,but I the other diving. There's a eighty. I think there was aperiod of time so I had to go as well. You Got Eighty,which was so frustratcause he also could have had a hundred in turns of stats, but I think it was probably about six or seven touches between them ina row. There were genuine direct turnovers. It was the most infuriating game.I was punched him up bed and everything. It was so annoying.But now I was so happy that a craze did well because I was tossingup between him, Oliver and hitch and early on I thought, Oh myGod, I was going to get two hundred again. I should have knownthis. He's a beast in the wet. But you know, never doubt mccraypicked him by two points. He's an absolute animal. The question thisweek is who do you go out of him and bond over for the coats? But wait and see on that one. But yeah, disappointing from Merritt andKelly and lines. Ever since you got him in you've caused him.But yeah, she had out to the worst inclusion. The weaken Shay Boltongot forty two. I was fucking fucking...

...joke. Hey, I just kepton calling it the worst player ever. The scene's on when I was watchinghim because I need it him for sports bet and for super coach. Soit was infuriating to watch. But managed to make finals in all my leagues, which was Handy because I was ninth and two of them, even thoughI was top four and points scored. So three, three finishes of seventhand third. So I'll take that. So coming into this week, teamsfinally fully set. No trades, just gonna have to ride at home,some handy bench covered though. We got likes of comally, Bramble Bianco,cody, waitman, they're all playing on Nathan Murf as while they're all applyingand hopefully not going to go anytime soon. So see what happens they're what aboutyourself? I'm I'm not too sure in not cool feeling twenty two ornot? But yeah, so, as we know, I burnt my burnon my trades like three weeks ago and I've had Martin, Langford, mills, etc. On the bench. So I had two donuts on field.This week pulled a two, two hundred and seventy, which, considering Ihad two donuts wasn't like wasn't like dreadful, but I mean jared lions, fraud, Lucky Neil, fraud, Merrit Kelly or frauds. Yeah, downto twenty one hundred. I think I came top for and all my Leagus, though. So and if Langford comes back this week, which I thinkhe's meant to, then I should. I should be filled in twenty twowith like one rookie on field. So I might still be. As longas I don't get any more injuries, might still be all right. ForFinals, definitely rankings out of the window. But yeah, we'll see. Fourfinals Beah, I'm probably just going to chuck the vase on Bo keyeach week now because I've pretty much given up. But Yep, what doyou say? You were ranked twenty two. I was going to get out.I'm now two eight hundred and three nines. I'm coming for her.Okay, we're both got to trade. You go this this one next wayyou'll love me. Mate. At least we're not. We're not. Ithink it's probably a good week for hammer to miss, because thing you missedout in final. So yeah, I think he scored. I can tankfrom from H Janis. All right, we'll finish. We'll move swiftly onfrom that. Will Finish off with the handicaps, Benning Lines, whatever youwant to call it, and we'll just go for the ones that aren't outyet. We'll just do our tips, which is the Melbourne game and thepoor game. So Saints, Carlton, Saint's minus twelve and a half atmarble. Go The saints, back the saints. I've got Charlie Kurnel back, which is I'm kind of worry's it's top play that'll kick file on us. But if he's not kicking goals, then I think we should hopefully getthis one home. But well, way't say. I think Maxi Keim,you'd hope game. He's plays mulgains Calton. So yeah, yeah, back,back it up with another six goals. You'd love to you'd love to seeit. Doggies in Ballarat against Adelaide. Minus thirty, six point five.Probably have to go bulldogs, to be honest. Yeah, I can'tsee it. That's team from it depends which team from I them shows up. I can't see the crows coming a ball a route and doing anything.So I'm going doggy. Yeah, I'll join you there. I'll go dogsas well. This one's interesting actually, because north to long in Tazi.North plus thirty one and a half in...

...great form, but probably the bestteam in the COP. This is really annoying. This with this one,I find tougher. Yeah, this is tough. I actually I don't know. I'm tipping the cats, obviously, but I don't actually mind the Kangasat the line. I don't think the cats are going to blow them outof the water. So that reason, going to go KANGA's line. Yeah, I think I agree. I think if I had to lane for thenorth, is is pretty handy in terms of the candy caps, although theCUNNINGTON news isn't doesn't bode well. But I think I'll go north as well. Pies, west coast, MCG. Pies plus seven and a half pilof it's get a few plays back. This is a big game actually interms of west coast season. This is huge. WHO's back for the pith? I think? Well, I think they're getting Maine back. I thinkthey're getting I read the in the mix and they basically dropped for rookies forfor you know, best, twenty two players. So I'll get it up. I might m this is a really tough one. Actually, Jesus,I'M gonna go. Yeah, I'M gonna go Collingwood, and also Collingwood towin. Okay, I don't mind that. Yeah, Jeremy, how's in therein the mix? Yeah, okay, I'm trying to get it up now. Who else was in there? Yeah, I main hostal, Elliottand sire. Okay, so it's three more experienced players and the guys goingout except for penalty. So yeah, yeah, I actually don't mind thepies there. I might jump on them with you. Yeah, and we'veseen west coast have been pretty shit away from home this year, so hopefullythe past can do from really yeah, except when they played port, playedoff their heads. Don's Swan's at? Is this a marble all? It'sat the GABBA. It's going on there. Interesting, all right, Don Swansat the GABB UP Essen M plus a ten and a half my afterbackSwan's. I like the scoring pair as well, especially in the fact thatbuddies now playing them. He's got it a credible record against this one's soagainst the bombers. So yeah, I'm gonna think back that. The bombershave been so stiff with this one. The fact they have to play itat the Gabba and Franklin got off very stiff there. I did. Doyou think he should have gotten off or do you think it should be suspended? I need have a look at it again, but I'm pretty sure Ireckon he should have been suspended because it looked like it was intensely agree di. They graded as intentional. I think he was okayless. Think it waslike I think it was about the impact that they are because I think itwas. I can't remember quite what it was, but I think it wasto do with the impact, but that could be wrong. I just justthat they they down grade at the impact at the tribunal from medium to low. But I thought if it was intentional, very high. Yeah, even ifit was low impact, and I thought that was still a week.So they must have done it as careless. You could very well have been highimpact. But I think the precinct was set when, I don't knowif it was this year, when the Richmond I think think of, mighthave been assprey who chucked an elbow back into a cold player and didn't actuallyget on got off. I sorry, I didn't get suspended. Yeah,so I think they just use that as an example and that was it,because there's a very similar case. So,...

...yeah, I think it should havebeen suspended to but the end of the day, there you go.Yeah, yeah, I reckon. You should have been. But yeah.So in terms of that line, did you say Swan's? Yeah, Isaid Swan's. Yeah. Yeah, and they get colorm mills back as well. So I'm definitely going with this one. Is there actually do they? Yeah, and I'm actually not too short. They get him back this week?I think it might be next week. Hopefully it is, because that meanstoby green's still out as well. Yeah, but yeah, I don'tknow about that one anyway. That but yeah, could be wrong. Hawthorne, Brisbane in Tazzi Plus Twenty eight and a half. Every time I backhawks they scream. I tipped them against the cars and they stiffed me.Hawks are tough to tip. They are very tough to tip because they're eithershit or media and mediocre enough to win or maze make a close. Sonow this one's what was the line again? Sorry, twenty eight and a half. Twenty eight. I can see the lines winning but by like twentypoints, maybe twenty five. So I might just jump on the hawks line. It's a tough one this. Actually I don't know. Actually, no, you're not. I'll go lines. I hate hawks. Hey, whatI've done from my tipping this year and and embarrassing me on this segment.So I'm going to go I'm gonna go lines. Yeah, I'M gonna golines as well, just seeing what they did to Gold Coast last week.Who We're actually a four team as well. Yeah, I think the lines willbe too good. And then we've got free Oh Richmond in Perth.Plus nine and a half, three, I's away. All that's hard.I'm probably going Richmond. Yeah, I'm going to go east into at yeah, out of five, and Walter's going to make a tough I know whilstsomething of the best year, but at the same time you look at theamount of five power that Richard still has and it far exceeds freeos right now. WHAT THEY gonna line up on the weekend? So I'm going to gorichmond here. They gonna bounce back. Weld got a shower, run thestilling make finals. Yeah, I agree that all right. Now we'll justdo our tips. These are both pretty easy. Potentially Gold Coast Melbourne.Yeah, we don't know where they are, but that'll definitely be a melbourne tipfor myself. Yeah, yeah, as well. And and then gwsport. I think the rooms are it's going to be in camera, butI will still be tipping poor in a head to head. Yeah, yeah, I gotta go poored as well, even that we don't lose to you. Where the teams that are in the top five? Yeah, I getWeird Day where the to all forwards kick it for you like Digson Georgia's andmarshally. They'll kick it back together, hopefully. All Right, I thinkthat about ends. Have you got any anything else to say about about SinKilda? And just don't lose the Carlton please. I want to, Iwant to, I want to bury the dagger further into their bodies because justI how funny is to watch them lose, because you know when they when theywhen they beat a side like, I was going to say North Melbourne, but obviously lost them, when they beat a very lower end team,they think they're playing finals, but when they lose, they they jump offand quicker than but they jump off him very quickly, which is quite funny. So I'm yeah, I'd I'd love...

...to see us ruin their egoes fora long time. I'll be watching that globe, so I might be watchingthree screens at once, but we'll wait and see. And you just knowthat the carton fans who don't actually watch the footy will be chucking the winup on their store instagram stories if they do get up. So we can'tbe having that last thing so as well. That is that is true. Butyeah, hopefully the signs get up there and hopefully poork it up aswell. Yep, cheers for watching and have a good one.
