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 twenty one at the end other way. Firstly, what rounds is gone? Nineteen around, wrong rock round. Yeah, you didn't tell where in the we're in the head space for this one, but yeah, ran nineteen round twenty. How I may, and can you give us a bit of insight on where 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 of Olympics of the moment, so sort of tried to vot my attention away from the footage just because I'm a saint support of the moment. It's probably our first loss of the season where I'm you know, we come away. We're not, you know, burning our memberships. It was one of Coulton's, let's say, honorable, not honorable, losses. Still, obviously you would have 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 worse sources this year. It's probably that year where I'm yeah, this isn't one of 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 when you have to, when you're in this mindset of following a loss, when you're not all that negative, but the same time it's nice to not want to kill myself come Wednesday and you know that you're you're about to have to go through another week and watching again. Yeah, and a huge, huge breakout 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. will go 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 it off. Kick it off with couple winners to easy. So I'll kick it off with North Melbourne over the blues. This was great to see, considering I think a lot of fans, like myself, like to see cult and fail, given we've been on the same sort of path for me a year now. So it's great see North Get up and just sort of show that they're they're not the worst side of the competition like Sid they're they're not going to be the worst side of the April's, ever, seems what many people dub them to be prior to the year. They do have a lot of young talent that's coming through and you know, they've also been able to transform a few of their players. So we've seen Tara Thomas who probably, you know it was, probably got three votes in the weekend, or at least you know at least got one, with twenty three touches, five tackles and four goals. That is an absolutely dominated domination in the midfield there. So he was in that super draft that we often talk about. We don't really talk about him. It's definitely about time we start talking about it. But with 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 cherry picking them out the goal square. So obviously bag seven. He begs a lot more at the lucky cock and I saw him last but so he was awesome 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 that just got the job done for them. The dogs as well, big win over the day's, you know, end of the day's run against top eight teams. It was probably, you know, be able to come to it end at some stage. So it was good to see the dogs get a win there. You know, I think a few people have been a little bit skeptical, you know, the past on a month or two. Are they like, you know, I top two team? Like what are they? Are they just, you know,...

...just a finals team and all that odd sorry, no, just a top four teams probably more sensible way of saying it. But they they stem cells is probably, you know, top two 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. So very handy with for them the cats as well. Over, Richmond didn't succumb to the pressure of playing type of Richmond that everyone, you know, half to suspect did to actually get up because, you know, we all know who richmond are what they can do. So good on the cats for getting the job done when they need to, and also the giants keeping their finals hopes alive against the bombers. Massive win there. They seem there they'd be a very frustrated team to follow, the giants. So there's not many people we can ask about that. But you know they they seem to. They make 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 in that one against north. Then then they win these top ones when they really really 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 they are. Bombers and giants are probably the top two most frustrating sides if you're a fan of those sides. But good to see Nick Larky getting things done on Chapel Street. I think cane corns said earlier in the season that north were the worst sight of all time or something. So he was coming some enough. 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 cane corns, given your a port fan. Yeah, well, I don't hate him because he's a port legend, so I'll just kind of but I'll stay out the way. I don't back him up because he does make some shit calls, but very sensible there. Yeah, but to be fair, our respect. They doesn't give a fact what people think and he just just makes all the are controversial calls. Little bit of respect there for it. But yeah, didn't get to watch the Melbourne bulldogs game unfortunately. Family movie night that night. But yeah, I expected the days to win that. So that'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 sixth now because of them. But yeah, we'll see. We'll move on to some loses. You can kick it off again. Yep, beauty. So yet one same game, is it? Wait, these are all pretty much the same games actually, apart from maybe one of them. So Carlton was obviously a huge, hugely say this weekend probably the biggest one. They just didn't they just thought Nah, now we're not playing finals this year. Who can have a crank next year? They just didn't turn all, I mean lots 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 think they particularly pointed out one goal. I can remember who it was or what court it was, but colon were just the defenders were just walking. I think they ended up having, you know, like the north player just walk through like three plays. was about fifty out and they nd up kicking the goal. But nor arm cold just look disinterested and didn't look like they wanted to show any fight. So definitely not promising for them, given that they were, you know, if they won this game, they they won this weekend. There were, you know, there were being whispers about finals chances potentially coming to fruition, but apparently not. They just didn't look look like showing up. There's only about four or five blokes over twenty touches, which is just never a good sign. They got beaten in all stats around the ground 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 the review, but it's just on to next year. For Carlton. It just something that they've been. Sorry, they're just some of the fans have been saying 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 Coast as 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 over one 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 fifty three to twenty four at one point and sixty two thirty three, so it ended up being, you know, fifty point loss, you know, which is 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 are fading in the second half of not just seasons but games, then it's obviously a 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 Richmond as well. You know, obviously the lost dusty, but you know, if they threw Shay in the middle there, he was shocking for not only super coach but just impact on the game. It was no good in their where. They just did look like they have any spark. Richmond. I think it's now actually coming to the time where I think we are starting to lose, you know, we are staying to just about say look, the Richmond 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 like when you play sport when you have a cold, you just don't feel like yourself. I think this was like them and obviously I think the bombers as well just completely shot any chances they had to make in the eight. I think there's still a chance, but they would have had to have won that one on Sunday to make it a legitimate chance. Now it's just a bit of a bit of a fluke if they make it. But yeah, they had a they should have won that gay. You know, they on paper they'd probably, 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 all doom and gloom for them because this was, sends to be, a rebuild season and they have already excited expectations. Got A lot of the young talent coming through, a lot of is probably the team in the competition that have, you know, switch the magnets around, the boast and said succeeded. They got 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 is the 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 biggest losers, 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 at the end. But yeah, well, was I yeah, I was going to bring up this. I don't know if this has happened too much recently, but as a saints Fan, if you find yourselves, like you know, 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 are you 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, where it'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 to attract 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 trying to attract. It's going to be very hard to attract players if your tanking as a club, because that could well go into following seasons and at the end of the day there's nothing to say that pig files canny better than pick six or seven. We all know that. You know some of the best picks come in like the s and the s of what's we've seen in these redrafts. So No, I personally wouldn't say it's like round twenty three and you're lost and you want to lose. Yeah, exactly. You like you're like you know you need to lose by like a certain amount. I would like to tell the players. Look, just give the young boys a go, see how they go this week and if we, you know, if we caught, the big loss of means...

...to get pick one. If we don't, then, like you know, it shows young boys shine. But yeah, that's probably only situation where I'd say look, you know, just it will try a few things around, it probably won't work, but we'll cop 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 think he can have more disaster to effects because then you you look at like the whole 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 multitude of 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 we do our pretty good top eights. And then, and then also, I reckon, we go premiers and runners up as well, just to add a bitter spice. So I'll kick off with my top eight. My top four has changed around a lot actually after that bulldogs game. So I've got to long on top and bulldogs second, and I've got port third. I've actually done my ladder prediction on the fell website so that that that little thing involves US beating the dogs in round twenty three, which obviously might not happen. But and I've got the D's in fourth because if they they've got to play the 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 games too pretty much anyone. So I think if they, if they drop one or 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 West Coast and tigs reckon. They'll sneaking. and Premier is, I'll go non biased. I'll go geelong. Premier is Brisbane runners up. All like that. Few people are starting to jump off the bridge vand wagon. I know they just got up over the suns, but it's the form hasn't been the last few weeks. I see interesting. But I did this the other day as well and good for entire read sent me his so I thought I'd return the favor. So I've got so I did every game from here. So I've got the dogs in it finishing on top. I've got the cats in its second, the D's at third and the Lions at fourth. And then I'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. We got 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 probably going to be. This is this is going to be the toughest game of their games coming up and it's against Free Oh, it optus Freo. Obviously now have walters and fiferet. So there with our stars as well. You know, if you look at the firepower of the Tigers up for, we know it, Jack and Lynch. No, down back you've just got the troops and in the midfield, you know you still the likes of Edwards, Lambert Bolton, all right. So I think I think the Tigers were too much there. And then they've after that they've got North Melbourne, which you hope they get the job done over, gws, which will obviously be a tight one, and then Hawthorne. So they've bought some very windable games coming up. Hence why they've hence why they're in there. But my premiers are going 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 them in probably most years. Neutral friends wouldn't...

...want the cats to win, you know, 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 be this 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. So there's ever a year for them to win, it can be this year. I think I think all most us will take that, but yeah, that be 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 me to say it, but I think they're deserved premiership favorites at the moment and peaking. And Yeah, it's all the catsling there. Yeah, exactly right. They've put they've been peeking since since they're round. I lost to Adelaide. They've been unbelievable since then. But yeah, yeah, hopefully someone, someone knocked him off. But yeah, all right, we'll we'll do our next 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. Another tough one. The players are getting pretty old. We're getting into the dinosaur ages 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 I can. So I'll be loved to to the port, the port lads, but you can go first. Mate. Kick US off. If your honorable mentions or just top ten. I do have honorable mention. Soul I'll list them off first very quickly. So I've got the numb one drop pick from that year and there David swallow of the verse, Very Coolly Engineer, to McDonald, Paul Steedsman, Brody Smith, Jamie creeps, Jeremy How they're the honorable mentions I've got written down. At number ten. I'm going to kick us off with jared lion to who his career didn't really go off to a great start. It's only really what he's done Brisbane which has been huge for them 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 lucky nel on that midfield lines has been doing a lot of the bulk work in there. If you take him out of that midfield it's actually a bigger hole and I think people realize to fill and because, you know, he's just the standard twenty five touches, you know, truck load of tackles. So yeah, if you take him out of that, all the pressure goes to Neil 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, he is only really beat in there, based on what he's done in bridge at Brisbane, I still think it's worthy enough because I still because I think I'm going to also going to factor in the next few years. I think you'll obviously probably been the same player for the next, you know, couple of years and while Brisbane going for that premiership. So I think, you know, 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 on this list. So a number nine, I've got cam go three. Obviously probably having a career best year, but he's just been a soldier for the whole 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 player for this long. We all know that. So you know, to be to be 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've got Tom Liberatory. Obviously Premiership wenter. got a few more than the resume for him, but obviously hasn't been like a standout star midfielder. He's been a, you know, very good and excels in some parts of the game that lots of people sometimes don't tend to recognize. You know, you can sometimes walk away from a game thinking yeah, liver played all right, but you look at it starts is actually really good, you know, as a contested base in there, but often overshadowed by likes a bottom. Mccrae is probably hurt his ability to finish, you know, really high up and predominantly club awards as well as, you know, Brownlow metals. So I brently know finishing up in the brownlow tally. But yeah, he's still, what's my mainstay in that dogs twenty two and...

...you know we know the quality of that team, especially it's been field, so would be in there. Is definitely worthy of being on this list as well. And a number seven or what, three time premiership player, Isaac Smith. It's about the only thing, you know, he's really got going, apart from the fact that, you know, 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, proving to be a very vital player for the cats as well. They obviously lacked a bit of speed, bit of ball use the cats, I think last year and probably started this year when they were playing that sort of slow, boring style. The footage. I think spiss really helped them there. So he's finishing off his career nicely. He's not sort of you know, he's not sort of turning over and just, you know, all limping together in his career. He's having a really, really strong impact. So that's the reason why I've got him this high. But yeah, obviously contributed to those three premierships of the Hawks, so that's definitely he's definitely worthy to be in here. 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 coming over. He's finished pretty high up in most best and fair seasons when he's been fit and he's brought you know he's an Australian quality player, but you know it's been hard for him to getting in there just mainly because his body just 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't that 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 wants used to have. I think lots of the these guys on here are still having 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 the bombs have got going for them. But you know that's it's still a very vital role for the bombers. Day provides a lot of leadership down there and just around the club as well. You often forget how good of a player Dos and Heppal was. He's an absolute animal for Essen and back of the day in the midfield with the flowing dreadlocks. He's got a lot more, a lot more on the region way than I first saw when I had to look at it. So yeah, he's definitely worthy of a top five kick here. Number Four I've got Jack Darling for West Coast. Obviously been huge player for them alongside Kennedy. Like you know, we always talked about how portant tool forwards are and you know it's one of the reasons why is this high up. Obviously twenty eighteen premiership as well. Nearly nearly cost of them in the last sort of minute or two when he dropped that sidered in front of the goals. But now he's been a very important player for them and you know, without him most of the folks is on Kennedy and not sure how far they would have gone with them with just him by himself. A number three, got another Eagle and Andrew Gaff obviously being a quality woman for so many years now. You know couple Australians. You just know what you're going 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 someone that can put in all the hard guards as he can. You know he can run all day and, like I said, you know he played twenty two games for every season. So He's been an absolutely quality played for them a 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 a successful 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 the swans for so many years now, such a gun to watch. He's obviously slowly coming to the end of his career and, you know, letting the young boys starts have a bit more of an impact, but he's been so good for them over the years. You know, obviously being APPs all Australian's really high finishes beings when you haven't one of them and just an absolute later around the club. So he's just he's been one of the pigs of this draft. 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 to go one of my least favorite players in Tom Lynch. But unfortunate I can't pass it up. He's you know, he's not only the best all for this draft, but you know he's...

...probably, you know, it's probably a best player. You know he's got a really good reagion. MASE obviously playing a couple of premierships. Now I've got think it's got a colon medal in him. A couple of Australians. It's just you know, I know he's he's probably had better days when he was a gold coast and he used to kick a few bags of six and stuff, but and at the moment you know he's probably kicking a few but yeah, the bags come a little bit less often for him now. But at the same time, you know he'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 know how important to all forwards are and he's, you know, carried Gold Coast team for so long in terms of converting goals. He's doing the same Richmond now alongside Jack's. That's been very handy for them. So to have that to problem attack in Richmond is just made them unstoppable for those couple of years and was probably worthy this done one spot just because of how important all forwards are. Light harder to come by. But yeah, unfortunately I'M gonna have to round it off with Tom Lynch because, yeah, I think he's just got to 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 a toss up, but I just think how has been an elite player in his position for a number of years. So yeah, that was that was a tough one, but yeah, so I've got Jeremy how a number ten, great defender, loves a hangar. Has had trouble with injuries. Would potentially be higher on the list if he hadn't, but either way he's a he's a gun and I think he's he coming back this week, or is that just 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, probably a little bit better in a better team, but the last two seasons he's absolutely broken out and became an absolute weapon all Australian last season and I'm sure 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 better than him on this list. He has struggled with injuries as well, which is a bit stiff. But number seven, I've actually Gone Andrew Gaff I've just given the nod basically to the to the inside midfielders over the wingmen in this case, and I don't like him because of what he did to break sure, but can't, can't, can't judge his ability on that. But yeah, he's obviously gone. As you said, been one of the most consistent players for like the last six years. Number six, dyson HEPP will extremely underrated. Was a gun midfield off for like four years in a row and would have been five if it didn't have to miss two thousand and fifteen or 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 last couple of years, which is why I is moved to halfback, but he's still a weapon and one of their best players. Number Five, I've actually gone libber. I just think what he brings to the table is really unique and not many players out there can do it. He's just an absolute clearance beast and an underrated player because of that we've seen. When you take him out 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 there and obviously one a premiership number for Jack Darling. I actually I write him quite highly. He's got an Australian...

...as well, key forward, so he's got to be right up there. And then three, of Gone Isaac Smith. This is purely because of his team accolades. I mean he has been a gun wingman for like ten years, but he's like a better version of Brad Hill. But yeah, three flags in a row. Not much more you can ask for. Number two, I've actually swapped him. I've Gone Lynch at too. He's arguably more valuable than Parker, but I don't know. Luke Park has just been an absolute gun for them. Is won a flag numerous best and Fairis just gunn midfielder who can impact the score board as well, which not many other midfielders can do for like the last eight to 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 Sol around the board. I think the honorable mentions a very stiff nor to get in there. You know, look at the likes of, like I said to MC Donald, Paul Steedsman, Brody Smith, Jamie Crooks, like you knows, coops. Yeah, premiers, your player in there, and you know the all the others have been very close to it as well. I mean they've all played grand finals, except for team at but he's playing the PRELIMP. So yeah, it's that one was a very tough one. I was 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, and I just I love the way it goes about it. And, as he said, we all hate Tom Lynch, so he can even take a back seat in my rankings. But yeah, all right, will will actually doing a all go will do sober coach, I've been dreading this, but I'll think I noticed you had a decent weight this week, so we'll let you kick it off with how you went. Yeah, well, I was, you know, I'd had a shocking like like previous few weeks. So it was nice to go okay, as when two hundred and seventy seven had used to trades are climbed in the rank. So back up into two thousand eight hundred and thirty nine, so back into the top K. want to probably try 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 and cody goes onto the bench. So finally I've got no one in this team under hundred K. So you know, I've got likes of Bick Haynes and Bolton, the two porus players by far in this team. Park from that it's basically all premo. So happy with that. But yeah, in terms of how a week went, really happy the likes of Daniel and Whitfield based my whole defense, apart from Haynes tummed up, which was handy, very handy. On nail the Captaincy to on the Craig getting one hundred and forty six obviously stink. With Grundy on on the night game against Port I was so 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 a period 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 in a 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 tossing up between him, Oliver and hitch and early on I thought, Oh my God, I was going to get two hundred again. I should have known this. He's a beast in the wet. But you know, never doubt mccray picked him by two points. He's an absolute animal. The question this week 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 and Kelly and lines. Ever since you got him in you've caused him. But yeah, she had out to the worst inclusion. The weaken Shay Bolton got forty two. I was fucking fucking...

...joke. Hey, I just kept on calling it the worst player ever. The scene's on when I was watching him because I need it him for sports bet and for super coach. So it 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 though I was top four and points scored. So three, three finishes of seventh and third. So I'll take that. So coming into this week, teams finally 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 applying and hopefully not going to go anytime soon. So see what happens they're what about yourself? I'm I'm not too sure in not cool feeling twenty two or not? But yeah, so, as we know, I burnt my burn on 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 I had two donuts wasn't like wasn't like dreadful, but I mean jared lions, fraud, Lucky Neil, fraud, Merrit Kelly or frauds. Yeah, down to twenty one hundred. I think I came top for and all my Leagus, though. So and if Langford comes back this week, which I think he's meant to, then I should. I should be filled in twenty two with like one rookie on field. So I might still be. As long as I don't get any more injuries, might still be all right. For Finals, definitely rankings out of the window. But yeah, we'll see. Four finals Beah, I'm probably just going to chuck the vase on Bo key each week now because I've pretty much given up. But Yep, what do you 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 way you'll love me. Mate. At least we're not. We're not. I think it's probably a good week for hammer to miss, because thing you missed out in final. So yeah, I think he scored. I can tank from from H Janis. All right, we'll finish. We'll move swiftly on from that. Will Finish off with the handicaps, Benning Lines, whatever you want to call it, and we'll just go for the ones that aren't out yet. We'll just do our tips, which is the Melbourne game and the poor game. So Saints, Carlton, Saint's minus twelve and a half at marble. 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 get this 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 see it. Doggies in Ballarat against Adelaide. Minus thirty, six point five. Probably have to go bulldogs, to be honest. Yeah, I can't see 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 dogs as 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 best team 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 Kangas at the line. I don't think the cats are going to blow them out of the water. So that reason, going to go KANGA's line. Yeah, I think I agree. I think if I had to lane for the north, is is pretty handy in terms of the candy caps, although the CUNNINGTON 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 pil of it's get a few plays back. This is a big game actually in terms of west coast season. This is huge. WHO's back for the pith? I think? Well, I think they're getting Maine back. I think they're getting I read the in the mix and they basically dropped for rookies for for 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 to win. Okay, I don't mind that. Yeah, Jeremy, how's in there in the mix? Yeah, okay, I'm trying to get it up now. Who else was in there? Yeah, I main hostal, Elliott and sire. Okay, so it's three more experienced players and the guys going out except for penalty. So yeah, yeah, I actually don't mind the pies there. I might jump on them with you. Yeah, and we've seen west coast have been pretty shit away from home this year, so hopefully the past can do from really yeah, except when they played port, played off their heads. Don's Swan's at? Is this a marble all? It's at the GABBA. It's going on there. Interesting, all right, Don Swans at the GABB UP Essen M plus a ten and a half my afterback Swan's. I like the scoring pair as well, especially in the fact that buddies now playing them. He's got it a credible record against this one's so against the bombers. So yeah, I'm gonna think back that. The bombers have been so stiff with this one. The fact they have to play it at the Gabba and Franklin got off very stiff there. I did. Do you 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 I reckon 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 was like I think it was about the impact that they are because I think it was. I can't remember quite what it was, but I think it was to do with the impact, but that could be wrong. I just just that 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 if it 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 high impact. But I think the precinct was set when, I don't know if it was this year, when the Richmond I think think of, might have been assprey who chucked an elbow back into a cold player and didn't actually get 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 have been 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, I said 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 means toby green's still out as well. Yeah, but yeah, I don't know about that one anyway. That but yeah, could be wrong. Hawthorne, Brisbane in Tazzi Plus Twenty eight and a half. Every time I back hawks 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 either shit or media and mediocre enough to win or maze make a close. So now 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 twenty points, 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, what I'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 go lines 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 will be 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 whilst something of the best year, but at the same time you look at the amount 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 go richmond here. They gonna bounce back. Weld got a shower, run the stilling make finals. Yeah, I agree that all right. Now we'll just do 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 tip for myself. Yeah, yeah, as well. And and then gws port. I think the rooms are it's going to be in camera, but I 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 get Weird Day where the to all forwards kick it for you like Digson Georgia's and marshally. They'll kick it back together, hopefully. All Right, I think that about ends. Have you got any anything else to say about about Sin Kilda? And just don't lose the Carlton please. I want to, I want to, I want to bury the dagger further into their bodies because just I how funny is to watch them lose, because you know when they when they when 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 off and 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 for a long time. I'll be watching that globe, so I might be watching three screens at once, but we'll wait and see. And you just know that the carton fans who don't actually watch the footy will be chucking the win up on their store instagram stories if they do get up. So we can't be having that last thing so as well. That is that is true. But yeah, hopefully the signs get up there and hopefully poork it up as well. Yep, cheers for watching and have a good one.
