Hello and welcome back to the other board podcast. This is episode a hundred and twenty three of the show and we're back again for our weekly AFL review episode, once again joined by angus row. How are you mate? I'm good, mate. Enjoying a bit of Guinness to myself after Bitter Uni. So yeah, just sort of waiting for Friday to come. There's no Thursday night footy, so I'm it's an extra days wait, but yeah, how are you going? Yeah, I'm pretty well. How do you feel about no Thursday? Not For you. I'm kind of sad, but also yeah, I don't know. How do you think? It kind of bumps I know. I think when it was first sort of introduced or the first side of gay momentum a few years ago, I was like it's kind of hurting that sort of Super Saturday set up. But then you really think about it, you're getting an extra game for you to watch because you think that that game that was take it that that game, but Thursday night is replacing is just a game on Sony which you can't watch because you're rather watching one of the other on Saturday. Looking at this week and there's two games on a one hundred and forty five. There's a Thursday night game. That only be one. So I mean it's reducing about of games you can watch, but I mean the end of the day, least it's not two and twenty football. So I guess we can't really complain. Yeah, part of me kind of like the choice, though. I like welighing up my options. Who to watch, which super coach players I haven't each game and stuff like about it. Yeah, it's fair. Yeah, one of the one hundred forty games like this week. Do we have an interesting dialom? Well, is it a sit up, to be honest? Yeah, to be honest, probably is an easiest peak to long west coast, a huge game at Gmhba, and then there's Gold Coast Sydney. Yeah, which I feel. So it's a game. You'd prop that. Yeah'd be good to what I think it could be close and I might talk about it later of my predictions. But yeah, well, okay, there's probably going to be five thou people watching that. I get a kwold on the TV as well and just say, yeah, that's actually a good point. Get the laptop out, get two screens gone. But all right, without further a G can we get into our winners and losers from around five. I'll start us off. Why not? Sadly, your teammate on the end of an absolute slacking. Let's start with the winners in not just the AFL but also in the VfL. I think the Zeppies came back in the fourth term to make it look a little bit more respectful. But yeah, Richmond, well done, back in the winners list after a few shaky weeks. But they basically just prove once again that they're the exact same team that's one three premierships and deserve to be premiership favorites. Yes, teams like the dogs in Melbourne and Sydneyre and pressing everyone, but they're still the boys swinging their big dicks around. They've got the three, they've got the three premiership trophies. So yeah, I don't think we can sleep on them. And Not saying that people were, but there were a few questions coming out last week and I think they just shut up shut made it. The haters just think about themselves and their life choices a little bit. There on an absolute clinic. Don't say them at marvel too often, but yeah, they really turned it on. Apart from that first quarter, which was exciting for St Kilda. But yeah, after that it was just a pressure clinic. Just too good. They how'd you see that game? Obviously you were bit more invested in in the me. Yeah, I was at it. I was sort of next to saint sheer squad but still surrounded by Richmond supporters, which is great fun. Yeah, the first quarter was really promising, you know, I thought we got a goal on our hands. You know, last week wasn't a flash in the PAN. It was sort of the bounce back. But then after that first quarter it was just a few shocking skill aries. They just led some more and more. It was just a shit performance in general. Were just a few players out that they just should not be playing. I got AFL football, you know. It was like a I think it was the most famous skill...

...era. The skill error of the night was bred he'll early in the second when he dropped like a chess mark on fifty and then I KNU is mild picket sort of grabbed it, swung around and get the goal. Bread he'll didn't even get up and try and tackle and you could have gotten him. So I was pretty pathetic. And then just it just sort of built on from there. You know, right in front of US something in the third quarter and there was just a three on two saints, Wayne Richmond's Ford fifty and Ben long as a Freeman and just decides to watch Daniel only fly up for at thanks abyss bit of miscommunication bio. was just embarrassing to watch really. Yeah, I mean the last few years I've sort of wanted the saints get to all the publicity in the media and we finally got it that it's all for the wrong reasons. So, yeah, it wasn't good and it's just I mean God, when it started hitting sixty, seventy, eighty points, I just thought no more, no more, and they just kept piling on the goals, which I don't know, you don't often actually see from which you don't sort of see them winning by ninety point margins. So for that to happen, I you know, the one thing I thought going to the game I thought, surely is it's not going to be like a ten plus goal margin. I thought it might be like, you know, sort of crummy, sort of scummy, for like eight goals, seven goal, six gold marsh at the Times where to win and win comfortably, but for it to be that much it's just embarrassing on our behalf. So yeah, I'll I might just quickly jump onto a couple of losers. I think the Carlton were pretty underwhelming. It's at all crap. Yeah, I know that, like they the odds were surprisingly even going into the game, which I don't think anyone else, anyone sort of agreed with, and I we touched it last week. But yeah, still, you would have expected a bit more fight and a bit more promise from a team that everyone is sort of hoping to see being things from this year in the next couple of years, and it's not really delivering, to be honest, a sort of stagnating is for the past sort of twelve months. So yeah, bit of an underwelling performance given also put Adeais lost en US dearly in the game and had Hamish heart light out their own like half a leg as well. So Um, it was yea cold and just didn't take advantage of that, and the suns as well. was pretty dismal. At least first quarter performance or first half, and that they bounce back, I think was the last half was roughly even, but we're still just just look like the sons of sort of two thousand and twelve thirteen. So there wasn't great for him. And then when introduce a bit of a new little inclusion here, bit of a surprising one, it's a loser that one. And I've got delong in there because just at GM HBA getting danger feel back, I think your hens back, or they got someone else back, and they're playing off Belbourne, who just gotten thumped every week the cattery, which is renown, and you don't go over there and win at the carry, you go over there to lose. And I think it was. And the cuts, obviously at the I think we talked about them. It's been nearly the best list on paper in the preseason and well, least I did. I hyped them up massively and firms only be up by seven points in the third quarter. You know, they kept them right in the worst team that I think I fl seed and since you know, junous and Gold Coast are really sort of introduced, or at least, or maybe you know essendon sort of a side, a team, but Um, to have that quality of a cat's list out there only a head by like seven points against snorth moment at the carry I just like I know it's a windsor win and I'man yet roasted, probably by my tight up, because I remember last year I was on a potty and I gave you the cats like a shit rating, even though they were doing well. But I look percentages of factor in this season. I think we all know you've got to be blowing teams away if you want to go at La Finish higher up in the ladder than than others and you know, to only come away with a sort of five goal victory aainst the worst team in the COMP at a ground with most advent advantage. I was really poor from it. So I'll...

...be, I think, men awesome test against Eagles again this week. It's to see how they, it's funny to say respond because they want but yeah, it'll be interesting to see how they go this weekend. I'm just really not at all sort of encouraging encouraged to watch the cats of the moment just because just don't look that good to be honest. But surprising given the list. But yeah, yeah, they went ten, seventeen, which is not good enough. I have to say some of the goal kicking over the weekend was just rubbish. I think there's three teams I've highlighted here. Gelong went ten goals, seventeen behind. Calm went nine goals, fourteen behind. Some of their goal kicking in the first term was just crap. I think four players Miss Luck Straight in front of Twenty Hour I think created. Yeah, I was there. I was letting right behind where they were kicking in that first u basically see the perfect angle. But yeah, ever run apart from Sam Wash Shit. Just just touching on Colton, they were dreadful, like I think. Hopefully lean stocker can bring it this week, assuming he plays. But yeah, they're halfback usage, which is something on paper you'd say is their strength with yeah, Adam side Sam Docherty was really bad. I know ports renowned for their four hundred and fifty pressure, but yeah, Sam dockety had a stinker. He was like there are a couple times Robbie Gray, I know he's a star of the competition, but really made him. But he just put his pants down really in terms of like a one on one contest, I think it. He dropped a few chess marks when, yeah, it just had a real shock at the dock. So I'm calm. They were pretty disappointed, but yet gws as well. They ended up getting the win as well, but they keep nine seventeen, so they should have easily been really yeah, they should have easily be se and I just don't get gold kick in the AFL. I know it's a psychological thing. I don't but they hit targets all day long. And a target is such a smaller you have such a small margin for error, but goals you have like a sold ten meters to aim for and they yeah, I just don't get how they're so bad at it. But don't watch. Thank you, to play. You'll you honest, and actually don't. Don't hit targets. Like like I I with you. The kicking big like it all sports, the composition like in the world. Sorry, like you know. You I know because it's a national sport, not a World Wide Sport, but like you know, you look at NFL punting and stuff like that. Like, I don't know, I have thought. I just feels it's like more like amateur is not the word. It's not as like skill demanding. Yeah, he's like the skills aren't nowhere near as good as other professional sports, but which, honestly, I actually I guess I don't hate because it's sort of humanizes the plays and that makes sense. But yeah, no, it is interesting to watch because, like, genuinely, if you put yourself in those positions, like you could, you know, both of us could kick those like yeah, but it's sort of makes you feel a bit, sort of less worse about yourself considering you could have gotten drafted because all these plays you grew up with did. But yeah, no, it is, it is. Yeah, it is interesting to sort of watch and followings sort of see all the cops that happened. Yeah, no disrespect for to footy. I've always believed this. I think it is one of the lower skilled sports, and that doesn't mean it's a worse sport. But yeah, I just think in footy the main like attributes is using to be really fit and you just need to be like really brave in contest. And Yeah, if you have those two things, you're well on your way to being a good footballer. But yeah, that's obviously a great spool. We love it, but a hundred percent agree with you there. But Yeah, calm was very disappointing and I'd still don't know how they came down to a dolininy for that. It's just plexing to me. But Ye, Lam stock, as I mentioned, absolutely killed it for the Carlton Vfl side, so he should be back in which will be exciting to see. But yeah, other winners put audelaide, like I think they should have won. If people are to be them to win the minor premission and stuff, they should beating Carson. But I don't...

...think they'd played at the MCG for like eighteen months or something. So that was good that they could prove to themselves that they can win there, because you obviously have to win there to win a flag. Brisbane bounce back. I actually called that. I have to say I'm pretty happy with that. When you guys, you guys went Whoa, you guys, when the dried off, I was you guys weren't the Esden like plus twenty four. I think I'm back this spread. Yeah, you guys back the thread. I went the other way. So I, like you. Obviously we're taken Brisbane as well, but they came out and show that they're still, yeah, well and truly in the picture for the top eight Freeo as well. I thought they've been average away from home. So, Father Schif so, for them to go to Adelaide and get a win. I think most of us thought there were solid chance there, but they just showed how how far down the track they are really in their trajectory to becoming a top eight side. They're really on the verge of that top eight point. There's such a good team to watch. Losers basically already touched on most of them. The other one I haven't touched on is I'm actually going to put Sydney in there. They have had a really hot start. They are four and one, but I think the wheels are falling off a little bit. They only beat the bombers by three points. Then they've lost the battle of the bridge, even with gws kicking seventeen behind, and now Franklin and Hickey or out to go with AMPI and Heeney. Yeah, I'm just getting a little bit worried for Sydney now. Yeah, it's going to be tough for them to rack up wins over the next month or so. I don't know who they're playing after this week, but yeah, there's some big names that you don't really want to be sidelines. So getting a little bit worried for Hallthlong, Myers, swannies but yeah, any any other losers you want to touch on? Um? Well, I think I actually talked about the loser before and I haven't winners. So let's do this an no, let's let's do this in a bit of a weird sort of yeah, Al Way, but I'm a couple of my winnings. Scary, got my winners. We're just to standing the day's just continue to sent their authority on the competition. Obviously it was a great game right u until four time and the day's a sort of unleashed hell and just sort of keep goal off the goal at the go. So it was great to sort of said likes a Gornie who's just, I think, eat at the moment. He's probably in the brownlow boats in the competition. He's just playing freakishly. Just just took contested bark off the contestant mark. I'd loved having him as with super coach captain. That game was awesome. Sorry rather, but yeah, gus is bounce back was good from like the past or the month. I was very happy. I'll back them. But Eight, O nine tips right, bloody, Oh, that's all. Rue could have easily gotten adelaide. Sorry, free are over Adelaide as well. It's Adelaide some stupid reason. But yeah, I tips tipped the giants and they bed better than as well, and good they got up for me. So it was a good bounce back for them. Could have won by a lot more. Toby Green kids link seven or eight behind, and the Tigers as well sort of bounce back from disappointing last couple of weeks. I. Last week is Paul was disappointing, but it's a lost anetheless. But yeah, it's not like the Tigers to have two loses in a row. So two losses in a row, so to come back and bounce back against saying so, was sort of pumped up from last week and then obviously only lasted a quarter against them. So Tigers sort of reminded everyone there's they're going to be in September again this year. So yeah, they were probably the main three winners for me. Yeah, I love I can't wait to read on my top eight because I'm very sort of set and comfortable on it actually for the first time. As you yeah, I'm interested to see where you have the D's. So, Johanna, tell us what your top eight is as of week. It's week five. Yeah, round five, yeahably it's weak. Yeah, so it's a top eight in terms of so I'm a lot more comfortable with all the teams are got in there now. I'm I reckon this will be the eight teams that make it, which is very surprised to say when you're only five weeks into the season. But at the moment I...

...can't see. Obviously things can change a matter of days, of weeks, but the moment I'm I wouldn't be surprised. It's probably better wording if this was the eight. So the top of I'm still port Adelaide in there and the Tigers second. So I've got them as the sort of at the moment, the big two that are carried on from last year, if that makes sense, with Brisbane and Jelong falling out of the top four, the dogs in it three, I think they have. I think when they finally come up against likes of you know, for the port and the Tigers next week. I can't wait for quiet like bulldogs tigers. Next week is going to be absolutely unreal. It's not this week, unfortunately, but next week is going to be awesome. The Eagles in at forth just continuing sort of rack up wins and players like sort of Jack Redden and all that, Liam Duggan as well, having I think they both very, very good on the weekend for them. They're both got over thirty touches. So just these little sort of not not filling in players, but sort of role filling in players. Of that makes sense. You know, don't eat Reddin's really there starting yet the best starting set abounce team, and Duggins, I think he was probably getting a few cheapers or halfback, but even though I'd he's probably mail may not being the best six back line the see. I've got the cats in at five still, just because I just don't buy into this sort of mediocre football being played by them. I think like they still racking up wins, the exception of last week, but I don't know, I don't really buy into the fact that they're as bad as they sort of playing. The day's in it sixth. I'm very tempts of the put them at five ahead of the cats, and may well be for this weekend. We'll see what happens. The lines it at seventh. Still think they'll make it. Sort of reminded me of that on the weekend and I was against the bombs at the Gab a bit. I think it just little bit too good just to not make it. And the Swan's at eight. I think there's start just enough to keep him in there. I know they've got a few injuries out, but I think any too hopefully be coming back soon and I think they're young talent's good enough. You know, they still got Parker in jpk running around out there. The midfield is also like obviously still really strong with them in there, plus the young guns, and I think seem reads had a really good past couple of weeks. So hopefully he can provide a bit of an attacking Proy list in them up forward alongside Logan McDonald, who's got the worst haircut in the afls. So a few honorable mentions that just missed out. For me, what's be honest, is actually not much, because I'm pretty comfortable with this line up. But was that even often? Countless saints and Novel Honorable Mention now own. The giants will latch up a few more wins and maybe finished around that sort of ten to third eighth, Mark Carlton as well in there and you know, maybe the Hawks and for as well, but the moment I'm I reckon those eight teams will I wouldn't be surprised of those eight teams of the teams we see plane September. Yeah, I don't. Haven't done my topaid, obviously, but yeah, out of those teams you just read out that have missed out, I wouldn't put any of them in any of those ones you've mentioned. I think that's pretty strong. Just quickly. I don't know, I just thought of this. I was just thinking of calling or with a if you had to pick a number right now, where they finished on the ladder. What are you going with and be what do you think about Darcy? More and see will go three far? What do you think of the phone saga? I don't know why, I've just remember that. Colling would yeah, have a crime right there. Well, Um, well, I don't think I like the ate and I don't think they'll finish nine, so I can well, I could. There might be sort of eleven ish. If I have to put a number on it, maybe eleven, because I think the teens were sort of ready out just then. There's not really that good. They're like, I don't going into this year we thought it will be another lottery of teams all the way down...

...to sixteen. But now I'm sort of struggling to find teams to put in that sort of nine, twodred and twelve thirty bracket. So, given the Talent Collin style has still have on their list, I guess maybe they could finish ninth. I just contradicted myself there, but yeah, maybe they are nine, nine to eleven, I might have them in that. questionables question be Darcy Moore. Do you actually he should continue playing forward or just stick him down back where he belongs? Well, depends. I mean that I think they're going to playing. will be one of the youngsters will Kelly the coming weeks. So I will one will play one end, one will play the other thing. He's pretty highly touted youngster. It's interesting because, you know, we've seen Darcy more up in the back line. He's a freak. Takes these awesome marks and, you know as awesome athletic ability, but can get four goals kicked on him. So maybe it's not the worst idea. Obviously would kicking goals will help him up forward and Um, not sure. Like I think he did kick a few bags earlier on his career before he sort of cemented himself in that back line. But I'd be very interested to I missed the coming of game, unfortunately, on the week I was busy, but I'd love to sort of sit back for a couple of games and watch. Let's see what Darcy Moore does up forward for them, just as a Ya, as an inside fifty toll forward. I would be very interesting to see in questions see this phone saga hunt of those quite I don't apparently it was Jeremy how is on phone to think pregnant wife. I'm not too sure. I think it was. I think it was something. I think it was like trying to contact a wife was under a lot of stress who I just thought it was to do a pretiancy, maybe maybe not, and just to let him know that he was all right, to sort of d sort of relieve her. One thing on it mind. Whether that's true or not, I don't know. Like I'm pretty sure that there are people employed to do that for them. And in terms of the Goy and not, I think they blamed. They blame the fact that he was Miley could cust on the reason he got a phone, which I think is quite funny. But yeah, I don't know, Twentyzero dollars probably sitable sanction. Not sure you think but yeah, no, and the bloat out of proposition. I just I don't know, I didn't really think much of it, to be honest. I just got a got a bit of a laugh out of it, to be honest. But yeah, what about you? Yeah, I reckon they're probably like, I know it's tough to police it because you not what's really stopping them from just going on sports pet, but I like it when someone gets I do think they should be allowed access to their phone and then just to let them know. Like I know there's people paid to do it for them. Like it's probably a bit of a difference hearing it from someone than that person himself, like, for example, you're partner is pregnant or something. So, like, I feel a bit bad for them there. But yeah, Buckley's explanation, I think, made it twice as bad as it was. Like I don't actually guess people. I think many people cared before he went on a throws afl three hundred and sixty and then all of a sudden where I was outrage. So yeah, I don't think he really helped their cause there. But yeah, it's a bit of strange situation. Dares he more actually played her right up forward. I only caught the back end of the game, but he kicked a couple cheap ones in a junk time. But yeah, he's got obviously really good hands and, as we've seen, the backline so reckon. You could kick a few snags, but it's an interesting one. Like essence, kind of been juggling it with Kl Hook off for the last like six years. It's tough because even though they are pretty good defense as you never know what's best for the team. As you mentioned, he does get goals kicked on him and stuff, but can take an Inno grab. So be interesting to see what they do in the upcoming weeks. Right. got a bit of a different one this week for our list segment. We're doing a bit of a coaching Tier List. So we've ranked out the eighteen coaches. We've got, I think, five categories. So top category is hall of Fame Worthy Coach, so someone we think could get inducted in the hall of fame. Then below that,...

...which is got a good coach. That's basically that's a good coach. Then next is safe coach. So they're not good, but they're not in danger anything. They just safe where they are. Fourth, we've got a rookie coach. So like we haven't really seen enough of them to rate them. And then fifth, we've got in danger, people who could lose their jobs, probably this season or in the upcoming years. Or Right Hall of famers. I might start us off here. I've got three in my hall of fame, which is interesting because I was looking at the hall of fame coaches there's not many and most of them of one, like four plus premierships. But I think all three of these guys have fair claims to be in at first of all, Clark Oh, I think here's a lock for a hall of fame coach, as are most of the players from that three in a row run hallthor went on. He has a sixty percent win rate for premierships, including three in a row. Everyone basically credits him for changing the game around two thousand and eight, two thousand and nine. So yeah, I just reckon click as a lock for that known as a super coach. So why not then? Second I've gone with Damian Hardwick. Three grand finals. He's one or three three and four years here. It does only have a fifty eight percent win rate, which is the highest, but yeah, pretty impredible. Incredible what he's accomplished. And then last, even though he's only one one premiership, he's got a sixty nine percent win rate, and that's Chris Scott, and he has the highest win percentage of anyone over sixty wins, which isn't actually that many. That's probably like if you're coaching for five seasons, you probably knocked up sixty wins. So yeah, it's pretty bloody impressive that he's got a sixty nine percent win right. So I reckon Chris Scott. Yes, you probably needs another premiership to get in there, but I think sixty nine percent win right a lot. Probably deserves hall of fame induction for him. Do you have I'm assuming you're probably got Clarkson. Who are any others you've got in there? I've just got Clarkson in there. Is the made one? Yeah, yeah, I wait. And then thirteen to fifteen. He's just sort of Jacko Orte. He was the hawks. I was always awesome to watch and annoying to watch. But Yeah, that that lineup on paper. Seeing the grand fallows for years. It was just so hard to beat them and I remember that seeing a photo a few weeks ago Clarkson's coaching box at one point and at least, like you know, I think there was a few of these names in there with was Ratten, Brendon Bolton, Chris Faguin, Adams, Simpson, Leon, Cameron Bear, very hard week. All these plays have come through under him. Most of those players were in that actual photo. So yeah, I mean it's yeah, it's been a revelation I was to Clarks into the coaching well aspect of the AFL good. I've also got Damon Hardwick in there. Obviously hasn't quite obviously got the accolades has clarks and, you know, given Clarkson's raise all these people and Hardwick is raised by Clarkson himself. But obviously hardwick sort of making a bit of a dinnersty himself a Tigerland. So definitely got to have him in there. It's good. I think that's they were the too short bets. I mean it was a no brainer. And that little category there for me Clockson and Hardwick, just to see what hardwick's done with Richmond, considering they were bit of a shambles. He was in the sixteen. So I remember listening to a caller that called in on a radio station in I think it's last round. Loss to the swans was buy like a hundred points or something, and he's sort of broke into tears halfway through the call, sort of crying on the radio stage, just talking to have it like vomit on this shirt of something. You're voluted the shirt midway through like the third quarter of the last game, and it was definitely search it up because it's quite funny. You know, the radio host sort of just just lose it at that. The Cooler Ridge just like yells of like listen to me, let your tears, but it's a great listen. Yeah, the safe bets.

I've got a three names here. I've got Adam Simpson, considering, you know, he's obviously the previous ship under himself sort of natural along that team there. You know, he'll probably I'll lead him into September again and I'm signing to like their chances of going deep. Bevaux obviously also has a premiership under him. Just I think the lineup in the list, especially in the midfield, obviously that he's got means he's not going to be going anywhere anytime soon. I think he's sort of really well liked around the club set by Josh Dunkley, and then we'll Lee see probably dies in now, given Dunkley's actually playing midfield and racking them up, which is good. So and then third and there I've got Kenny Hinckley, who doesn't have a premiership but I think it will be there. I think obviously his career was sort of on the ropes for a bit a couple years ago, but since they've found this bit of success it's being wholesome at being one of the most watchable teams in the modern era. I Reckon Port Adelaide, just given their mix of mostly sort of young talent and sort of early to be in twenties and the teenagers. But then the experience of sort of boken all that. There's not much experience, but just enough to sort of really admire them as a playing list. You know, the the in the inclusion of like you know, I refer to them every welcome week on the podcast. God, but it's like I'm going to start dropping their pants. But it's like, you know, do like George ID's bludders, does Mer and rosine all that like the future so strong for them with just that core of players, and none of them are going to leave. I know that they all love it up there. So yeah, I think I think can pretty safe up there as well. The Hulk, the whole crew love and I haven't really seen much of a I hadn't. Haven't seen a playing group that loves a coach more than Port Ily love can. So did you touch on the rookies? No, not really got much to say about the rookies, to be honest. Then rotten David Noble, only seeing them for like five weeks. So I don't know if you've got jv long. Who else you have in the rookies? Well, I had Matthew Nicks in there just, you know, came into it last year. I was see a day David Noble, who only played too a four games and senior coached for a field games. So if you sort of add that up, he's only being it. This is why I've sort of found quite interesting he's only been directly involved in six AFL games in his whole life fan which, I don't know, sort of hit me different. He's you know, it was a. It was an assistant coach at the dogs for a while, general manager for years and stuff. I he's been involved in it, but you know, it's been directly involved in a game. I'm talking, you know, play out or senior coach. That's about it. He's only been involved in six AFOL Games his career, which I just thought was quite interesting. And then in danger, I'd I'll let you go into your you just talked about rookies in danger. Well, you know, we talked about loon cameron every week and all that. Let's jump Shit. Let's go to Dathan Buckley. I know all that. I know, I reckon. His time will be up soonish. I know I'd be hearing a lot of Collingwood fans expressing their frustrations at the fact that the playing line up sort of remains the same every week. You know, they've got the likes of Hoskin, Elliott and Josh Thomas and you know this and that coming in and out every week and being the already changes, which is what's happening at like, for example, same killer for so many years. But you know there's there's not many games coming out of their youngsters, which we're starting to see now the last couple of weeks. You know, Jack mccrazy's relative, fidlay, who's playing for them, which is good, and I think they got another debuit time in their bromer career a couple weeks ago and all you Henry and all that, but it's still, you know, playing the same sort of line up every week. I think supports of science aft frustrated Buckley now and you know the the club's going into a bit of a downhill stretch, which is surprised and give the talent when they've got but you...

...know, the whole Jordan to Goye being x factor play the afls sort of not really working out for them and isn't helping the sort of path to success which is sort of you know, being versed. So yeah, it's a bit of a new one because we've always sort of touched on Leon Cameron and Stewey you as well, but I've got Nathan Buckley sitting in there this week just for a bit of variety. Yeah, I've Got Leon Cameron and steward you in there as well. She read you. I know Gold Coast when he started there. They're pretty trash but like he has a twenty percent win right, which is that's pretty interesting. Matthew Knicks has a higher one, which is not even sure how it is possible. Interesting to note, though, Buckley is a collingwoods kind of gone. Not Down Hill, but they're, you know, looked less and less like winning a premiership ever since they lost that grand final. Leon Cameron and the giants have basically fallen off a cliff, TAF cliff after that one, and along has had a pretty bad stuff to the year. So I'm not very good point. I'm not pointing out the Chris Gott's gone, but it's good. Maybe it's a curse. So there's something to it. I don't know. Who Lost. Who Play? Oh, who? Who'd Richand beaten the twenty seven grandfather, two thousand and seventeen grandfather, kind of seventeen Adelaide. Geelong's gone right there. That's that's very strange. Yeah, that's the biggest down hole full we've we've Sayed little in a while. So yeah, Jez along, Geelong gone. Yeah, but yeah, so that's a headline for you. That tomorrow's paper. Cheah, other one, other ones. We haven't touched on horse long. May I have to say he's probably close to hall of fame just through longevity. But three grannies. He's only one one, which probably hurts him. If you'd want two or three, I think you'd be close. Obviously had a great playing crew as well. And then other guys out of my safe. Don't really need to mention them too much, but like silent Goodwin Devit Justin long the are fags and rats as well. What do you think of Brett Raddon as a saint, killed a fan? Do you think he's a high quality coach or not too sure about it yet? No, I do like him. It's different to it's different. Look, let's consider this season so far. Like I's obviously a small sample size, but let's sort of compare it to the misery that we had, that we enjoyed. was like Allen Richardson and sort of Scott waters and all that. I'm a lot more positive. I'm less I don't blame the coach for this one. Basically I've seen. You know, I guess the most we can do we see clips of our round coaches and speaks and stuff in interacts with his players. I'm a lot more fond of of him doing that than I was with the other coaches we've had in the past, a hundred percent, I think this one, and I think we could be seen on Game Day. He's a bit of a players sort of I don't know, just sort of loss for loss of like, well, let's put a harshly, a loss of a clue of what they're doing. But I don't think it's like, I don't think it's to go on Ratt and I think he's really honestly doing his best and he's a like he's obviously coach column before and all that and is, you know, he's been the coaching panels for years. I don't blame him for this one, for example. I'm I'm happy with them, and I know a lot of saints fans are. It's the the sort of frustration right now is on the plane group. It's not the coaching panel. So I've I know it's been on the coaching panel for many years now and I think this year's finally, obviously we're still now experiencing them. Is Really we have the for the past ten years, but this year it's finally onto the playing group again. So at the moment of the moment, I'm still very happy with...

...writing them what he's doing, because he does sort of bring a lot of life to the club and we saw that last year. I think there's a culture around the club is a lot better and stuff. Just seeing the clips that were released by social media and all that. He's a lot better for the club. But yeah, definitely not not blaming him for small sample size of a shit years year yet. But again, I'm still still very fond of run. Yeah, interested to see how Chris Fagan goes as well this year. If the lines have a down year, don't think you'd get sacked, but I think a lot of pressure would be on them for next season, that's for sure. Or Right. Moving on to our players the week, I'll give you my three, two, one, first, number three. It's my hit. Look, let's be real, my brown low voting system absolutely loves his blog, I think, for the last year Luke Ryan. He actually hasn't pulled too many times this year's had a bit of a slower start to the season, but against oude he put on a bit of a clinic as usual. Second most mets game for the game, most effective kicks, most innocepts, most innocet marks, most contested marks, most rebound S. he's basically topped every stat you can as a hard back there. So he was my third best player. Number two, even though it was in a disappointing loss, he definitely stood out among the crowd. I was there at the game. He was very dominant, especially early, and that's Sammy Walsh. Most clearances for the game. Second, most tackles, most pressure acts, which is pretty impressive from a star player. Most score involvements, most school launchers as well. So he was good. And then my player of the week. You touched on him a bit earlier in the winners, but it's big Maxi gone put in an absolute clinic against the hawkers. Yeah, the most contested possessions, most hit outs to advantage. Obviously it's not that hard for Max Scorn to do. Third, most clearances. Pretty impressive considering the amount of clearance beasts their own, Hawthorne and Melbourne's lineups. Third, most innocent marks. Yeah, just had an absolute blind eye and, as usual, don't have them in super coach was on the end of end. If I up against on with who hadn't, as captain said, not hurt. But yeah, put on an absolute clinics. Who Have you got for your players at the week. I've got a lot of vulnerable mentions, which I'll touch on later. And number three of US got lucky Nel bouncing back from, you know, obviously sort of slow wish injury. Ra would starts the year with, you know, sort of Torres and an apart from the center bout. So took thirty eight touches, you know, sort of picked up seven marks and snack two goals. You know, it was a lucky it was a two thousand and twenty lucky your performance from him. You know, over a hundred fifty ranking points, as we called super coach points, just just dominant, displaying well. I'll touch on my super coach plans later, but yeah, I'm monitoring him in a number to Josh Dunkley. I know it's against the sun's under the roof. Wouldn't have been hard. They're still to get thirty eight touches on you had twenty on a halftime, six blots, eight tackles as well and two goals. You know, to get eight tackles when your team has the ball for most of the game is, you know, pretty pretty good from him. So and number one is obviously Maxie Gourne. I didn't have any non playing players in my team until sort of art like, until it was too late, basically. Yeah, so I had to go with gone and not take mcraize. One hundred and forty, which other shit is could cost me, but I don't know why I was ever worried. Gone just came out and whipped up one hundred and seventy odd from his twenty six disposals, ten marks, of which eight were contested. I remember saying, you know that the packs that were being kicked to like hawks will just keep in to wear Max normals every time and...

I don't know, he's just clunking them every time. It was just awesome to watch your thinking bangs and I was sort of Eight, nine, ten points there and then an awesome goal from on the fifty, on the flank. I just knew as soon as he took the mark, I like Max's kick it this. I've got him in all multi for a goal. He's kick, he's kickings, and he just sent it through the big SIS and it was a unbelievable kick, especially from a Rutman at a ruck would like himself, who is obviously had sort of goalking issues and in his game. So those are my top three. Honorable Mentions go to bond. Obviously gets the sons as well, so sort of puts a bit of a damper on the awesome performance that he had. Buddy five, but in the losing team. Jack Reddam was awesome for the eagles, but slightly better means and yell and dugly there. I can Shane Edwards was also good, but yeah, probably sort of tenish touches lesser than he needed. Tom Stewart was awesome for the cats, but I don't like the cats in the moment. And David Mundy was awesome, given his fifty eight years old running out there, and too sort of a massing touches every week for him. So yeah, it was sort of dominated by midfielders this week, but you know, to have the number one play the week being Rachman, I still think answers the question of diving. Rachman is still relevant. We asked a few weeks ago and anyone that doubted that questions just an imbecile. So Maxi Gon takes the chocolates this week. Yeah, I never give updates on my brown low voting, so I will. I will quickly today and number one. It's John Ridley, the beloved Super Coach Star. That is John Really out for one to two weeks with Kim Cussion, but he still leads the pack. The next up text walk is still up there, even after having a quiet couple weeks. Then we'll got just a really a pack of players rounding out the top ten, all around each other, Darcy Moore, Jeremy McGovern, Libar Bond, all of our live Bundy and gone, rounding out the top ten. So some of the better players are starting to creep up there and it's starting to take shape. You know, get rid of the text out of the top five, please, but get all the half back flankers out of them. Yeah, that they're rising. Lukey, Ryan's winning. He's got a little yeah, but yeah, right, rookie. The Way, I actually don't have one this week. I need it when I do my voting. I need to start noting down the rookies who play well. But once again no rookie polled for me. So or players who had less than ten games. So, yeah, that hurts. I think I was trying to find someone, but I think the person you had the least Games was like Sam Taylor. He's put like thirty. So Yeah, can't really plain. Can't claim that, can I. Now, who is your rookie? Who should rookie of the week? Got To get to the rising start. I'm Georgiadi's second nom he's gotten his career three goals, fifteen touches actually from a third toll that plays pretty deep. Is actually very good from him in five inside gift. You so obviously didn't paid up team. Actually contribute myself there, but you know, he was awesome. I love watching my string his first years. All I write in a lot more than everyone. I was telling us to sort of great to watch. He's got some sort of freak attributes. He's got awesome hands, especially sort of Jewey conditions of the G at night. Took some out, took some really good marks and I most lots of were sort of half uncontested, but still anetheless beautiful kick for goal, which is sort of what we've touched upon. His bit rare, or not not so much rarer, but you'll appreciated bit more than the AFL. Yeah, weren't too many other rookies. Actually. This week was a bit of a Quiewek for the rookies and James Jordan played all right for the day's Finlay mccrae as well for the pies, but Luckie Jones as well for port. But apart from that, no one that really stood out this weekend. You know, there wasn't an arable one hundred and thirty super coach or, you know, Chad warn or anything like that. So hopefully we see a bit more this week. Is Rookies are on my favorite things about the AFL. But yeah, George Hardy's takes the job with yeah, Miles Bergman. Obviously he wasn't really in contention of getting the nomination this week, but I thought he played pretty well. Yeah, he played really well on the first half.

Had to play back pocket basically when Hamish Harlow went forward with his corky or whatever he did. I don't know what his injury was because I was there, but yeah, he wasn't as at home in like a more defensive role. Got Out done the few marketing contest but on the wing in the first half he was pretty good. Didn't look out of place in a very talented Port Adelaide lineup. But Yeah, fair enough. Michie joined jazz. I love watching him play. It's just the perfect size. I reckon because he's still like really agile and stuff is yeah, but he's obviously being hug take the great yeah, thanks and clocks or Askar many. But yeah, he's like fast, he's taste B grabs. Yeah, it's good to watch. Or time for super coach shouts. Look, I don't know why I wrote the segment to the table and having the worst year of all time. Johanna, run us through your week last week. How did you go? Where'd you place? Well, for the second week in a aw I lost que let big time. I had midfield was our eyes, you know, sort of had the sees of Golden Power and Jordan on there and managed to keep burying. Actually, no, no, that's incorrect. I'm looking at my team for this weekend coming. I did lose rookie letting there as well. I had Jordan off the field and bury on the fields. That cost me forty five points. Cozy actually did all right for hundred sixty two on the field for me this week and then afford lost it again fielded. Alec Waterman got a twenty seven for James Row got seventy nine. So I think the were general rule now is when James Roy's playing audelaide, you field him. When he's not you don't, which I've only just believes now. Brand camels thirty nine is Stein to look very honest, but captain see very happy with gone, obviously. And then the Doggie boys and the crane dunkley awesome, and Zac Marritt formally rewarded us with his thirty, but just a few our Tom Steward as well, think shout a hundred fifty two, which worked wonders. But apart from that it was pretty shit performance from the likes of you to Campbell and Tom Flipping Phillips and Tom Mitchell and's you know, lad obviously he has a blinder and then it gets tags or injured or whatever, and then obviously, well do think? Just brought in Caleb Dane. So brought and Jordan really for Caleb Daniel. So that's shot myself in the feel weak. But I mean I hopefully really days and drew free for the rest of the year. I'm just got to sit him off this week and hope Tom I'm all comes in and hope Lucky Jones plays, because I'm going to bring in Lucky Jones this week for Jordan Clark. Just worst pick ever and then upgrading. I was going to go Brandon Campbell to Andrew Brashaw. I was able to do that with eight hundred dollars left in the bank. I thought that's it. But then I don't know. I don't like it when brachial has tags because he's such a young player. If he gets tagged he's getting like a forty two and sixty. Yeah, so and plus he's probably not a top eight med yet and I'm a fair believer of this time the year if you're going to bring a players right rookies, genuine cash cows if they're like not rookies, but not premos or top six to eight players in that position. So I didn't see brashure was the top eight mid. So I've Gone Tom Phillips out. I'm going to keep Braden Campbell in. Therefore, I'm more week, given he shown he can't score a hundred. But Tom Philips out able to swing a few DPP's deep peep's around and get I can bring in sort of anyone but Jack Steel. So at the moment I'm weighing up between the likes of jared lines. Probably not got three or five. So jared lions, bond, locky Neil, who it depends if he's back to his best or not, or Sam Walsh. So those are the four I have to toss up between and I don't know, very stuck.

I don't know. Lucky deal. It's I'm going to kill myself if lucky deal goes on to get like three hundred fifty s in a row like last year. Yeah, is I can very easily in this week and it's sweets purft opportunity, but he's got the cane tag this week against Carlton, which the big factor. But he gets one hundred and fifty then he's just going to explode back up again. So I don't know yet. Probably won't go. Jared lions just handy pod to have, but doesn't have a huge ceiling. So they comes down to bond and Seam Walsh and I don't know, bonds getting the you know how whenever every time you are us in bulldogs play, bond gets just annihilated by the pregame. You know, they all run in the it's all as an awesome contest, but they always target bond. So I'm actually leaning towards SAM. While she's at the best season out of all them so far. Him and jared lions probably the same season, but I'm leaning towards while she you know, he often avoids the tags the crips. Hopefully doesn't get tagged this year because of that reason, because it would have probably bring him in. I've just sort of slightly worry gives an he's a younger player, slightly more unpredictable, but he's a freak. We all know that. So that's it's sort of weighing up what to do. You know, he's lower school this. He's eighty nine, the rest of being hundreds, two of them hundred and twenty and one of them hundred forty. So he's had an awesome slight this year. Just I know that if I bring him and he's going to score a couple of s because he's, you know, the young player. So we'll see what happens, but I reck I have a feelings going to be Sam Walsh, but I probably won't make that decision right up until the bounce of Carlton Brisbane because three of those four players are in that game. So there is going to be my two trades and it is a cheaper option as well, and cash at this point of the year is a big deal, so it be given us the cheaper optional they has me up. Great, a few rookies later on in the coming weeks. What about yourself? Yeah, I had another absolute shocker, I'll be honest, this week. Obviously, like I didn't choose to do shit, but I kind of accepted that I was going to have it off week. I kept Daniel, so that was a premium on the bench. Also had two hundred and fifty kn the bank. So like my ceiling was pretty low. And then, to add add to that, Lloyd Meek, who I had, was run with Matthew Flynn and Brodie Grundy, Lloyd mink on the bench. Obviously Flynn didn't come back and meet got dropped. So I was either going to get a donut or I could downgrade meek to a minimum price rookie, which is what I did. Bring in Josh Tree Key and he gets sixteen. So probably should have just kept cap the donut. Yeah, I don't know. I don't know how I feel about that trade. I probably should have kept the doughnut, but at the end of the day he's a minimum price like rock. So like if he gets dropped, and he's just a minifie guy sitting there for the rest of the ear. Least I can speak Hash elsewhere, so that's not the worst. Yeah, copped Logan McDonald's fifteen cops and Berry's thirty one. Yeah, just wasn't really pretty. Did COPs stew it's hundred fifty two and died cop. Yeah, dogs Duggins a hundred and forty six, and also grundy's a hundred thirty four. Is Captain. But Yep, Cop Jeremy How as well. I see a lot of our pods seem to be getting injured. Bloody Dylan Shiel or Jeremy House Sam and a goal or so. Yeah, that hurts. Obviously trading him out this week. So yeah, but I think my team will be all right in the long term. I've got the good, good rookies, so I think my rank will take ages to get decent, but I think come finals in the league I might be might be okay. So this way I'm looking at. I did Miss Zeebel and IMP which has been hurting me. So I think I'm finally going to hop on one of them because they both look like being certified forward premiums. So I think I'm going to hop on Jackson Bull. I'm finally getting rid of just sinkin. He seems to get thirty touches every week for ninety probably one of the worst ball users in...

...the camp. So yeah, I'm getting rid of him. He was a pretty bad pick out the end of the day. I thought he was going to take the next step and become a premium, but he hasn't and at the moment I've Gone Jeremy how down to Lucky Jones. But I am a little bit scared because port and St Kilda are Sunday, so the team's come out Saturday night. So if him or in Jones magically don't get picked, I do have Chapman's. I wouldn't have a donut. But like that just I'm not don't want to trade in someone who gets dropped, obviously. So that's a little bit scary. But that does lead me with five hundred K for next week. So once again I'm probably not going to do go that big, but building for the future, they would allow me two upgrades next week, which would be pretty nice. But yeah, a little bit worried about that. Sunday teams, the Rolling Rolling Teams is whoever you decided that mustn't play super coach because it's I didn't actually think it would matter too much. In the first couple weeks I was like this actually isn't that bad. But yeah, being thrusted a couple times now by and YEP, really not enjoying it. But well, but yeah, that's about it really. Alec Waterman started him as well. He looks like he's going to be a failed rookie if he doesn't kick three goals a week. So hopefully he keeps kicking snags. But yeah, hoping as well. The buddy out might mean Logan McDonald's more of a tiger in the forward line, because he did actually scored better when buddy wasn't playing. But he's probably just shit in his first year. But y're not really enjoying the superco sat much of the moment. It's pretty frustrating, but it's all right. It's all right. Spend a lot less time on it this week than I did last week, so a lot less pressure on my school this week. But yeah, I think that's enough chat about super coach. Excited for another week of it. Hopefully the the tides turn for the huge Janus, but moving on to our week six preview game picks. Sure better the week and upset of the week. I actually think the short bets a bit of a tough one this week. Don't know about you, but I don't think there's too many where I put my house on it. But I'm actually going to go Friday nights game, the big rivalry game between well, they're not the two new teams, footscrayes, old ads, but they give me new, they give me young, trendy, goodlooking, sexy vibes. The bulldogs and dot, bulldogs and giants. This is probably the one I most confident in. I think Frio's the most the shortest price. I think there are dollar way to beat North, but I'm going don't. Used to be giants. Gws are coming off two wins, but on paper you just compare the sides with gws has injuries. The Dog. You shouldn't lose there in insane form. Yes, it's probably not the smartest idea to put the house on a rivalry game because traditionally raby ends can go anyway. But yeah, just back in the dog used to roll on and all roads lead to their big match up against Richmond next week. So hopefully they just see the gus is nothing but a mess speed bump and easily get the win there. But yeah, not sure to be honest. Watch your short better the week. Yeah, I half agree with you there. I just think hopefully the giant show a bit of flight and it does help that it's a giant stadium. So hopefully, like you know, Toby Greg can put him and put on a bit of a show. Yeah, so we'll see what happens. They're I'm not sure. I'm not. Yeah, I'm with you. There's no real short bets of the week. I'm even looking at, you know, freeer north, who is probably the short better the week, but even even thor could get up there. I know it's probably OPTI. So I got to have to lock that into short bet of the week. But even then I wouldn't like, you know, if it was a game show, I wouldn't be putting everything on on Friday to win. So it's good. It's really good going into a round knowing that the real short bet. So good for punters. You know, there's a lot, a bit of value floating around. But yeah, I apart from that, have to go port as well against us. That's true. Yeah,...

...so every every time I've said this about us we've come out in one or at least you know, every time of sort of tipped us in whatever reason, we've come out and that exact opposite. So I'm hoping that Um, this week, no difference. I'm going to say free or in Port. Yeah, fair enough, I think. Yeah, looking back on it, port is probably very likely to get the win. But upset of the week or there's a fair few to pick here. I've done I've gone for them as the upset of the week before. They're failed me, but I'm going again. I talked about Sydney's the wheels are falling off a little bit and I'm getting around the sun's. I just think they need a win. The Sunni's need to win. Their starting to really distance him self from those mid table teams that we're talking about in the top eight section before. They look a long way off that pack that's just outside the eighth. So I think a win here would put them right back in that pack where they probably should be. And Yeah, Sydney, they've looked not as good in the last couple weeks and the suns haven't really shown anything to suggest that they would beat them. But yeah, why not back the Sun's intimates? One's I didn't tip them, so fair enough. What about you? I've got a couple. I've got the bombers against the pies on an exact day clash. Don't mind. Look at your odds and I know the bombs had obviously poor, weak against lines, but you know there's a lot of factors are going to that. You know it's that the gaboos really wet. It was a lucky neel show as well. And the pies, I don't know. I think they're being a bit flattered because I know lost the eagles by sort of fires goals. So I'm definitely back in the bomb was here. They they have that big game atmosphere about them. They they do roll in a good crowd, which is what I've always sort of envied, given on the saint supporter at Marvel. So I've definitely got the bombers there. I'll tip the bombers. So I reckon to get to come out firing. Reckon. It's going to be a bit of a show from tip bar. Any might kids sort of three or sorry, Hooker and Stringer and Alec Waterman. Hopefully chipping for a couple as well for the sake of our teams. If he's picked things cross. How and then the eagles against the cats, just because I don't like the way the cats playing at all. I know the eagles. I think Josh Kennedy's in doubt, but I mean look they up. Darling and Allen, and I was going to say Lan Ribber, he's out too. So I still I'm still watching the back too. Eagles. I reckon the cats because link dangers now out for an extended period. Yeah, so, yeah, I'm I'm going to back those time. It's not just about, for the sake of the PODCAST, choosing upsets. I'm going to tip both of these teams. So think as cross they can rise me up my tipping ladder, which has been awful this year so far. But I generally think those teams should be favorites. I honestly don't see how they're not, especially especially as it I think the Ode definitely be a lot higher st I I'd be very happy to see them at one doll and I ah, but to see them at what they are, I think it's going to surprise a lot of punters and people of the game yeah, Gray, I reckon as days. The ANSAC Day clashold just be like split fifty. I have tipped the cats, but yeah, I completely agree with you. I'm pretty scared of West Coast. They're in good form, even with some of the injuries they have suffered. But looking at the game spread now, we laughed about a lastly, but north plus North plas sixty five would actually got up thanks to jeelong not kicking straight. But so north of that fifty forty four this week plus forty three point five. I think that's another shout. I don't think freemantle blown many teams out. They do have a close, scrappy game, so I think that's not even a bad shout. And then the other Games spreads I'm looking at is just basically the teams I've tipped where the margin is...

...small. So Brisbane minus seven and a half over Carlton, Richmond minus six and a half over Melbourne Collingwood, and then Hawthorne Down in Tazi a reckon. They'll I'm pretty confident they'll be Adelaide. So for it to be my buy more than seven points it's a solid chant. So yeah, that's just my logic. They're like if you think a team's going to win, usually the margin is more than six or seven points. So but yeah, I'm not. Actually I take colling with our that I'm not confident very I just don't know Essen in that well at the moment. Far. I should have watched. I haven't watched too much then. But yeah, other ones you've got down. I agree with all that. I like the lines one actually, but I'm going to go with port because I want I want to be wrong like him every week with the saints match. So comportant my twenty seven point five. I feel as off port are going to win. It's going to be comfortably. Released if we if we gave if port's going to win comfortably, it's going to be by a lot. It's not going to be a comfortable sort of you know, just like lost my train of thought. So I'm yeah, it's not going to be like comfortable sort of five gone margin's get. It's going to be. It's going to be a blowout. I think we've all come to terms of that, unfortunately. So hopefully I'm wrong, like am every week with these, except for last week. Shouts the giants first. Yeah, I'm going to have to lock in the poll. Yeah, that giants tip was bloody good man, though no one was back in you in there. I think even me and Pilch for a bit confused. But you call that. Yeah, by the way, weird question because it doesn't even have much to do with footy. But we'll look at it from a footy point. How do you rate Endzac Day footy being on a Sunday? Do you do you like me? Why? I mean, you can't exactly change the data, so I don't know. You know, what they could have done is maybe shift around a bit so there's only one game on the Sunday. I would have liked to see that and then, you know, maybe maybe a game Monday night. You know, unfortunately for the super coach teams are so, you know, maybe check a game Thursday night, one Friday night and then, you know, the regular Super Saturday and then one Sunday and then like one Monday. I reckon if you wanted to sort of create a bit more of an Anzac Day environment because and like the game is sort of wedge between two others, so it is a bit awkward. But I would have been other I've I would have done that personally if I was to fix your boss. But they have made it so that it's not overlapping with Games. I think the Hawks Adelaide Games, sign at all thirty and the Saints Support Games, signing directly after the game. So they have made sure that it is going to be a stand alone game by itself. But yeah, I would have. I would have made sure it's a stand alone day. But you know, it's footy. I mean, WHO's complaining? Yeah, fair enough, and they just finally, before we finish up, what how do you assess the Richmond Melbourne Game? Mansa, Daveve do you think Richmond will win comfortably? Do you think Melbourne are at that level yet to compete with the Richmond type team? Where you think? What do you think about this one? Well, I'm usually I'd say, you know, tigers, because they just know how to win and they always do with the momentum and I'm still going to tip the Tigers. But I am I'm in vision. I'm visualizing in my head now. I can see the day's getting up. I can see, you know, everyone's starting to say, Oh my God, that the's are six and zero, like they are for real now, and I would not be surprised that they do. So I think this is going to be the first big test of the year. I think going a watch a long's dishing up. Now it was a test, but there are bigger tests now. This is one of them. So I can definitely see them getting up. I think, you know,...

...they're not going to be overwhelm by the crowd, given it's going to be probably fifty, which is going to be awesome. So there's going to be a real big game atmosphere about it, and at night. So I seriously I can see the day's, you know, streaming forward. A couple minutes left, but they've just about secured the win and they kick a game winning goal where some Baker like Jake Melkshire banging into the second level. I can definitely say this is happening and I can see the day's getting up and upsetting the TIKES and I can see them, proud, sorry, progressing themselves up right high into that top eight. So I can see it happening and I'm started to convince myself to tip the days after this. But yeah, I can't wait for it to in. The awesome game to watch. It's an awesome day at football. That one actually, the John to long west coast, then falling on, followed by Carlton, Brisbane, which I think we'll be awesome under the roof, and then on to Melbourne, Richmond. I think it's going to be absolutely awesome. And discard free or north from the other channel. So yeah, I think it's to be an awesome day for you, the GANDSAC Day. I can't wait for it. Yeah, I'm so pumped for it. But I tell you, who's the Party pooper? BLUDDY Simon good in. How sick would it have been? Melbourne five and Oh and you check the team lineups, look at the Inns and it just has the weed and been brown. That would have been unreal side. But he's come out today and said only one of them's playing. So he doesn't want to disrupt the forward chemistry, which like fair enough, but come on, do you think? Bring it me are I think it'll be the weed. I think. Didn't you keep like seven? Yes, yeah, he had some ridiculous of it. Yeah, I think you kind of have to bring him in. Maybe they'll just give them a little bit more time, but shouldn't be long till we see both of them in the day's forward line. But yeah, excited for that one. Excited, as you mentioned, the whole day on Saturday and Zac Day Clis. It's actually just a great round of Footy, and next weekend as well isn't even better around a Footye, there's some real good games, headlined by that Richmond Dogs Game. Yeah, really looking forward to it. Hopefully there's some feisty, fisty action in the doggy's giants, as they usually is. It's one of my favorite matches. Like both of those clubs. I don't know, but yeah, that I'd be pretty nice if there's a few MELA's and stuff and also some exciting football yet. Come on, Toby Green, get Dick, go and kick six stops like angry your best. But yes, thanks for joining me once again, mate, not a problem. Is always a pleasure. Yeah, bit a bit of a late notice one, so I appreciate you coming on and Yep, enjoy the week of footy and will see you guys next week. Cheers,.
