Did I guys welcome back to the on theball podcast back in the other footy episode. As youcan see, we've got a huge absence today, and that is the long time host of theshow. Don't think he's missed an episode in a hundred and fifty episodesalso, but he's he's finally he's finally taken a day off and then you'restudying for exams. So me and roar about a step up. How'sIT Gone Mat. It's got all right. My weekend was a bit tough, but it's goingright now. How are you yeah not too bad, not the brightest weekend for us interms of that, our foot teams, but guess we'll get into that shortly. I think I'll. Just kick it off getstraight into the round. Third and Rake Cups I'll start her off with the port putour lid versus Joe Long Thursday night clash. I was very animated. During this game Ihad had a few cocktails. I was tweeting some recreable things in twitter,topping a bit of hate, but yeah this. This lost just cut a lotbecause we didn't even play bad. Our midfield stepped up. We played well, itwas just purely a case of not being as good as Jolon in all parts of theground on paper, which is not a good sign. If we're trying to push for aflag, we do have a lot of play to to comeback, which I'm hoping you'll help us out, but yeah. It wasn't too great to probably lost our hopes of the top,for finish, should still get a home final, but yeah congration, I thinkthey're, looking quite unstopper now, Jeremy Cameron is proving to be the keydifference, because I think he missed the first four weeks when they were twoand two or whatever and he's come back in and they've looked unstoppable. Clearly, the Best K for Jeo in theleague I'd say between him and Tomahawk, but it was good to say connors, Ifinally having a good game. It's been about three years since he had a goodPA. So one of your twites about him wasn't it about yeah, semi, welsh, isn't doing this song, butyeah yeah. I did. I did the CANCO yeah. Luckily, I've only got ten followers ontwitter side. I didn't cop the hate that can corn cops but yeah any anyinput on that game. Do you watch it yeah? I was pretty intrigued, but itwas obviously a huge match up, but I just turn into a bit of a shoot outwhich is great for the neutrals like myself, but I think it just showed that theexperience of the two Ford Lines, I think the cats obviously had the almost.I know you talked talk about the the Gio, but you throw Garon in there aswell, and that's really experienced- and I guess when Rolins Fire and youknow Jolon is he's the top of play at it. You know too long in doing that.Well, he'll have a quiet one, but you know unbelievable, so they vous hadabout twelve goals between them and that's already enough for a winningscore. So I think it was just the attacking trio, just sort ofoverpowered, not just ports, defense but sort of you know ports attackingyou see Dixon, there's, obviously Australian cally, but then you got afew youngsters in George as and all that I think to marshals, obviously outearly, but yeah just expose in a little bit there and I think, was there a bitof a bit of a size difference on the match.UPS, an I tremens. I was on Yeah Thoma, hall, Carly and Yeah. Iguess I just set the scene really but yeah anything to add on those match ups,because I'm biting traders to yeah the last three times we've played youlong Tomahawk has had an absolute field day, whether it been on Clary orMackenzie son prize that Elia spent no time on him on Thursday, especiallyconsidering Cameron was absolutely ripping him. A new one up and down the ground. Yeah one of one of Ken Hinkley's knownflaws is his inability to change change up the game strategy mid game. So if we,if we don't get on top of a team early, then we tend to not be able to switchit round, which is a bit of a worry but yeah. It was, as you said, it was agreat game of Foote, one of the best games of the round. From a neutralstandpoint, a lot of goals and both the year I'd say actually in of yeah. Itwas one of the best. It was very exciting yeah great to watch but did did cut a lot as a as a diehard port supporter M, we'll move on to Swannes hawthornFriday night. I think I watched most of this game. I normally watch the SONAGEGames because I've got about six ones in my sube coach team, including LukeParker, who dos yeah it's just nine right. Ninety five every where finallygets to pad him out this week, but I'm very poor from the twenties this weekwas very surprised. Aabout this one or...

...thorn stepped it up. John Yukan lookslike an absolute beast. I traded him in before he before he played a gameinstead of tremp Banco, which was a nice little surprise there. But what doyou think about this one yeah? Well, I was similar to you. I wasthinking a few at Taco bill, but I was still able to sort of have a lookacross the end, the room and have a look at what was unfolding. I remember cheering for Isaac, anykicking his gold, ten super coach and just in terms of the Al because of ourtalented, is it wanted to do well, but obviously I o t missing, but yeah youhumor yeah yeah. I know he was on about twenty five to care, Tyasen just yeah,the worst that goes down as the worst movie this year. For me, but yeah, I D, newcome's Furnam, tacklesjust set the tone really one of the case. That's in the game was the errorsand Hawthorn made a modest thirty two, but swans came up with sixty, which isyou know, pretty much double and just goes to show that whatever Saad has the pressure on theday usually comes out on top we've. Usually seen that I think I've talkedabout it a bit previously, but sorry, a Adelaide over the crows, oftenget a few scalps there, because they just really turn it up in front of theabled crowd. We saw it against Jolon and we saw it most recently againstMelwin. So I think Hawkes is put on a similardisplay and I think it was just the poor conversion from the swans frommost of their tall forward tigers. So obviously body or only kick the wineand just not too much else there really so yeah. What do you think about that gamewas obviously that type of game. I think swans had to lose a couple thisyear, given them not like a huge top for team, but I was too our ice. To was surprise.I was against the Hawks Bordy, you think yeah yeah, grey o this one isjust looked really sloppy and like half asleep, arguably, as you said, they area young team, most of their teams up and coming so they're going to beinconsistent, but I just feel like I might have went intoit a bit complacent which cost him in the end and Hawthorn always seemed to turn up forthe SWANNS match up like every single year. This one is going favorites andthe hawks just turn up and normally beat them, but I guess it's good for horsetend aswell, showing a little bit of promise with their youngsters and especiallytheir back line there. A lot of young young, exciting talent in there in CJ,scrimshaw et ca and then with Sicily to come back next year. That could bereally turned into an elate back line sooner rather than later, but still I will get into our ladders in abit, but still backing swannes to make the eight. I think, they'll get enoughwinds. Hundred Percent Radio on to Saturday's action. Friogoal coast didn't watch too much of this game. I think I was out of theHouse seems like Frio might have put on a bitof a clinic. I was expecting a close one. Did you watch it or no? I was at work. I was also out of ahouse yeah. I actually ended up tipping GoldCoast just purely because of all of the out O Frio, but yeah obviously look atthe starts and it's all just gone frais way and from what I noticed. Obviously,she on Darcy had another big game and we think we're going to touch on therocks in a new segment today, but he was obviously huge and from what I know,there's a lot of the sort of mid tear players for that ended up firing. Ithink James Age had his best game for probably the club Darty Tuckers, onethat had about thirteen marks and had twenty five. You Know Josh Tracy finally, isstarting to not score fifteen in people super coach, so any even then yeah he's.I don't know if what were other playing him previously, but I think just as apure key for the moment he's looking all right. So yeah it'd be a bit better. If you had,I guess a more a fl like sin aimed to Shat out, but because trace is actually my mom's name. I was a bit weird to sortof follow him, but yeah then I guess, plays you know likeTalon demand. You know twenty two and had nine of half back and you know BretBuly, Col yea. All these guys getting you know over fifteen touches, so notjust save super coat, but for the team as well just go to show that that goal coast travel issues just realthey're, just really not just cutting it away from home. They just look acompletely different team. Obviously can say that about a lot of teams, theL but gold coast just simply aren't getting it done away from home. I don'tknow if it's a mental thing or you know the players are still pretty young toadapt to the other environment of the grounds, but yeah. It's reallydisappointing them so far, because you can it's almost getting to the pointwhere, when they travel in state you just about bank the other team to win,we got. Obviously we want to. We don't want to see that so yeah it'llbe a nice little challenge for them to see if they can turn that around awayfrom home, but yeah. What are your...

...thoughts? Yeah looks like it was a lotof a lot of stoppages. Both midfield seem to dominate another inspirationalperformance from tocile that man, a slop freak, definitely should be in allAustralian teams. Speaking of that, I just want tomention I'll put a literally in my allAustralian ten, a Waan you plan and he find the worst game of every play soapologist for that he's come straight out, but m yeah, similar with Fortonfrios back line. I think it's really good. It was good last year as well andthen with peers, coming back in holding the's a lot of news, aboulimenKing to zero goals this week, which is the first time this season so he'sreally on underrated, Kay defender and definitely huge in for free and they're still sniffs to make theaid for sure, especially when five comes back ride'll get this one we'll get this one over and done with.I was at the Sporting Globe on a lot of beers, but I was looking over every nowand then I saw the saints get up like thirty two nil and then every time Ilooked over every twenty minutes, so it was just like a laid slowly plowingtheir way back and then, when they got within like three that was, I was justlike fuck sat, it's gonna happen again, but I'll. Let you let you cover this inMat. Well for listeners, if you're, if you're not watching this is your- myrealize is the first episode is here. I haven't won the Hoodie. It's come off,I'm not wearing it, probably for at least a few weeks. So that's done anddusted, but yeah it's just gang to the point where I've got. You know a fewnotes every game, but for this one I've just literally written we suck it was Id like look. It was first of Al. Was We talked about port along being one ofthe best games this year? This was just about the worst game is yet in terms ofjust a neutral fan, probably obviously the flight back from the Crom was goodbut yeah. At the end of the day, we were up,obviously thirty, six to zero and we were playing some pretty shocking fully.You know. Obviously, conditions were hard up there, but at the end of theday you know a EST was not a pretty game up to watch and, after you know,being thirty sity seven up. I feels as though a game plan sort of switched. Itwas more evident in the last quarter. I we were up by you know, probably aboutthree girls or something like that and what we tended to do, and this wasobviously the reason why the dogs nearly overcame us in the elimination.Final last year's we tend to just completely stop we just give up onattacking we settle for the school we've got and try and chip it around, which isn't handy when you're the most.I will so when you're the least skilful team in the com, also playing in thewet chewy conditions and there's fifteen minutes to go in the game andyou're only up by about two girls. I don't think it's the smarteststrategy. You probably don't need someone with a very high cut to tellyou that, but it just that, but I was it like once we were on a bit. I thinkit was about sixteen. We finished on or sing like that yeah once week, yeahwhen they're about to sort of a doll within that or at least two goalswithin that I thought well we're not scoring anymore just to sis the title:If Adele get it all over, then they win. So obviously that's what happened. I saw it coming from a mile away. Ithink it was about they. It was about fifty to about ten, probably, and theykicked to be out o one or two girls on the crather was still eight dollars. Ifyou caught up on sports but- and I thought I just should definitely chucka Tener on this but unfortunate- I didn't so yeah. Obviously that happened. Itwas just I mean I had a conversation Fumosa its modes after the game, and wetalked about it's just this issue of play development. These players arestarent getting better and better. They just stagnating, like players likeColfield, who had a mini break at your last year. Just looked lost plays likeJosh Battle, had about five touches. One kick for someone of his size. YouKnow Jack Low, an he just gets blown over by the wind and all these Danielskies, like damn bar to me, fair Butler, had about ten tackles but yeah. It'sjust all these type of players that just aren't just aren't delivering andthey have the capabilities to do so. Well, some of them do but clearly notanymore, so and yeah. If Been Long Jack, when Ye were play another game for thisclub, then I don't know what I'll do but yeah. It's just look lots of peoplesaying we got crimes and we did, but at the end of the day it's just you knowthe the Bi couldn't have come in a bit of time, just see if we can maybe talkup a few winds, but the end of the day. Now the season is not done so kind oftankas yeah. Well, that's the thing heard in north. You never want to seeyour team just throwing games to be fair. I no, I know but yeah. At the endof the day, I'm almost hoping it north of for Jack billings eight hundred Kyears, so we can get our first rounder for him. That would come after ourfirst pick, which so we'd get like twotop lives, but yeah. I don't knowit's just about be yeah. Look I'd, love...

...to see a lot of less management changes.Getting rid of these players are just aren't taking the games to elate statusbecause that's what's holding us back in my eyes, so yeah yeah from a neutral fan like yourselfor your thoughts. Yes, as you said, it just seems like bar steel and maybe TimMembri- I don't know he had a good start in the year, but it just seemslike none of your players have improved it. If anything they've gone backwards, I don't know it just seems like youguys have lost that winning culture just like knowing how to close out theclose games or something like that. I don't even know if you but yeah. I dofeel sorry for he made it it's becoming a it's becoming a thing every singleweek now yea yea. What do you think about the idea I actually haven't seenit, but that McCabe on hunter car? It's well there's a reason that it'sit's gone to the tribunal for a debate, so you still could come off with noways but yeah it's hard, because they're, both ryning at full palthey're oby, both come in to completely opposite directions and eevery one ye. Obviously, hunt has gonefor the ball and Mackay of it he's gone for the ball right up until I've Sayed like billseconds before, when, obviously he sees a person tries to brace that's probablywhat he's doing, but he could he's obviously got hunter inhis in his eyes and at the end of the day, only he'll know if he was tryingto get hunter go over the ball, but at the end of the day I think it still isa foot collision. I think you should get off. I know how horrific obviouslyhunters injuries eyes on he's completely fucked his jaw and theseafter about eight to ten weeks, but I don't even know that fuck yeah he'sdone a lot of damage, so at the end of the day, I think it's just this. Youknow this is probably going to happen a couple times a year where it's a, butwhere plays going for foot and one guy comes off perfectly fine. The othercomes off really bad, so unfortunately it was this week, but yeah look. I think I look. I thinkit'd be too detrimental to penalize him for what to penalize them at all, but evenfor the three weeks that they're saying, because I think that would really itsort of put a bit of a shock into the footy system. I think tides willactually start to second guess themselves about we let to go over theball, because the r the day you know hits like these were playersare going for ball if it turns into three week suspensions. This is theirjob they're, going to probably it's going to come into their mind whenthey're playing yeah so yeah, I yeah. So if you really analyze theinformative to the the the images you can see that, like it'sgoing for ball, gone forth, ball and last second, you know raises his handto come up. I don't mean I'm, you know. I think you everyone's posed to be atshore it's just to protect himself, because you know human instincts andall that so yeah. That's what I think it is andyeah. Unfortunately, you know there was just a it was just a collision tohunter's head and jaw. So you know, I think you should get off as shocking asit is, but I just seed be do too detrimental to m wet just to the fabric of the game ifhe was to get suspended just because of the minse that we put these playersinto and all not because yeah. I think it'sgoing to come a time when, if its, if players start getting suspended forthese type of things, it's actually going to really start affecting theplayers and how they play the game. We don't want to see that you know foot isall about rough and tough and we talked about how is not skillful sport andthat's because it's high intensity, so you now a to lose that aspect of it soyeah. Yes, it's completely completely a grave just freak accident from the fromthe looks of things and unfortunately, these injuries are justpart of foot and, as he said, the best part about foot is the is the toughnessand courage. So we cannot. We can't get rid of that inthe game. alrighty Sunday, north T ws first jor the season not sure how wsot out of this so in. I think you andCorpor both predicted this to be a close one. I said it would be a blowout, but north turned up. I only caught the end of the last quarter, which waswhen g ws were dominating, but I don't know I must have been a good gamequickset out to Josh Kelly who's yeah. One of my always been one of myfavorite players outside of port and need just put on an absolute vintage,joss Kelly Clinic with thirty nine and two girls. Did you catch any other there? But didI watched it all halfway because I yeah I had about sixplays in this game and Kelly was my loophole, so obviously turned it upwith a matter which was awesome, but that was it was actually a really goodgame and I wish it was played at a grand that wasn't blunted like his you ay sis. Just is you know, there'ssome grand that it is just difficult to...

...watch a game of a fur foot and yeah. Iis probably just a personal thing, but I hate watching a footy there, but yeah. I think it was yeah. It wasawesome gay. Obviously, the north turned up a Blancan just except forthose last sort of five or six minutes with Daniel Ward brought them into a B.Obviously, could only get them the two points, not the four, but it was hardto stop the OS run most of the time during the game, you know a wholecoming off. Half back was he was probably best on grand. To be honest, Ipart from Kelly, obviously so he was an animal for them and and SIP gettingkind o through the midfield with balls. But yeah in I was just a bit of a lackof Gedos is forward presence. Obviously they're missing Jery Karen in there abit Himmel bergs playing a lot more of the ground. I noticed and Maclin wasusually the main target up forward and clunked a few nice marks, but at the end of the day, probably don'twant to be relying on one of the part time rockers so yeah, unfortunatelygreen, just typical grand forms of Bongo for so unfortunately couldn'tconvert, but yeah it was. It was a good game towatch and it was good to see both showings of fight, considering plentyof people sort of locked him in for no winds this year. So yeah I was. I was watching a lot ofplayers in particular nicanees closely in terms of super coach now, but I willtouch on that later. Obviously, but yeah it was a very. It was a holysurcoat Olin game, but ah it was going on the less yeah yeah.I tried it in Aaron Hall This Week and I've had Josh Kelly S. most of the sostokes started about this tame from a seen, CA, dandoins north midfield seemsto be getting quick with, though Cunnington and so gina dominating eachweek, and I think gold stains finding some of last year's form again so I'llsee. If they can win any more games, think T ws ten yeah. They are so they still a they'restill in the hand, but not the greatest game to lead it towards that. Yeah isinteresting when both teams just looked suicide or when the siren went and theyyeah. I true it makes you wonder, should that should be implementing anew sort of fear. A illewding go I'd actually like to see that not a want,but a gold be shattering to to go the rough and of that, but it actually bepretty good right. Another game of the round here,along with the poor game west coast, Richmond huge wind for West Coast here, I think I baked them in the tipping orback their line, so that was good and always great to see Richmond losing,even though I also a so yeah classic classic West Coast Win atharm. Huge performance from Nat Newe, Shannon hone looks like a beast at theback and then Elliott, Yo's last quarter, arguably one in the game inthe end and obviously Jost Kennedy as well any thoughts not too much I shouldn't catch. I waslistening on the radio for a bit towards the end, but I was out thatnight, so yeah, it's obviously really good to see rich and lose its yes,that's the best part about it. Yeah exactly you C'd tell there was thirtymarks taken between short and Hally, so west coast, er, obviously allowing themto get it out of the day fifty, but setting up when it goes into the FortRichmond's forward. Fifty so yeah, obviously Han was obviously a big player in that because of theperformance he put on but yeah. I feel that younger play Steppin or no Lukawitwenty seven touches. No one really saw that coming and Harry e woods as wellwas really good for them damn back in and that foliis Olly yeah yeah, itlooks like he's, found a little bit of a role. It was on like sixty pointslike halfway through the second for them was so ridiculous, yeah, so yeah Ilike, like I said I think earlier in the season Bat West coat. I just got alot of really good sort of role, players and death, and that was justperfectly show case on this game. Here I think players like Dot Roham and allthat as having really good season. So I think it was just yeah the fact.Those guys also turned up Jack Reddin. Another sort of thirty touches, yeah thirty touch performance, helpsthat as well so yeah. It's just lot of these guys. Stepping up, in the absenceof you, know, Shelly Tim Kelly and all that Novice Yo, still probably a bitsore from yeah long injury he's had but yeah yeah, I've pretty sure Yo's lastcard. I was like eleven touches heaps of tackles andlike sixty super coach, so that man that, as looks like he turned it on,looks like he might be back. I was in to day yeah. I think I think we'll just moveon. I was going to say how, de there I say our date west coast on midfield, isthere OL about eight blokes? We can just go in there and rack up thirtytouches, probably probably partly due and that nowe but m anyway, yeah Monday Monday's game. I did watch allof this one day's collingwoods, just an just in an emotional way forthe past to go out Buckley's last NAMEA,...

I kind of had a feeling it was going tohappen like whenever you see a coaches last games or new coaches coming in theteam often comes out firing puts on a clinic, not even I wouldn't even say. The dayslooks like noticeably shit or anything like that. I think collingood justplayed really well, especially down back o limited the days scoring opportunities quite well, and obviously it s got pendage with oneof his career best games at his age after having a pretty average seasonwas great to say as well yeah hundred percent, and I think,though, with to go rolling through the mid field. Now thirty two touches inalle limit for them obviously had to is going shot as well,obviously both behind, but just should go show that maybe you know he'sobviously still young and got all this potential ahead of him, but hopefullyhe can get stream them all together, because he's an obviously a huge talentand looks like Darcy Cameron is that could form at a little partnership thatmany teams do with that. Those two rock men set up the well one rests forwardand the others, obviously the rocks, so hopefully grundy most of the time theRock and Cameron can swing through there, but plays that tall, fogs,obviously, bag four goals. So I was really handy for them. Tell you what Ireckon Luk Jackson and James Jordan might be the two front runners for therising star this year, though two of the days best players and they're,looking like absolute beasts and just that all the sand fans has justscreamed out in disgust. Ye haven't talked about Nick Cock, James Jordan's s really underrated.He's just gets it every single week, but yeah. I think that'll. Do it forout for Oron thread an Racotis, we'll move on to a lot of predictions.You can go first, mate just out O ate already, so I've looked at like thefuture Gobsy, so the rest of the fixtures forthese teams coming up and even though I've decided I've changedup the top for not partly because I'm just gone for the same one every week,but not because I just I don't. I see this team losingone two games Max the rest of the year, so I've got him in on top and that'sactually breeze Ben they've got the easiest fixture in the top, eight orprobably even the rest of the cot honestly that I only sort of saw themhaving one or two challenging games for therest of the year, so obviously they're hitting some form locking meals back.So hopefully you can tear it on so yeah. I've got them finishing on top,obviously the out of them slightly early in the year, but probably becauseare playing tougher a parents to be truthfully, honest and yeah, obviouslylove it when the lines get up, because it's not it's not like thisstereotypical sort of Ridge, men, West Coast type of thing, brisband,obviously haven't progressed to a grand final since wake. I remember so beawesome to see how dat they can go. I've actually changed up again. I'vegot you long now in a second. I've probably got this one on likepercentage or something but too long of obviously got a extraavenue to go now with Jeremy Cameron, and when that trio flies, it's reallyhard to stop. So I've got them. You know to obviously with dangerfieldcoming back. There's teams is going to get better and better, and hopefullythey're past, that sort of boring forty stage that they were at last year inthe style this year, and then I've got Melbourne. The dogs rounding out thetop, for I think, that's going to be the way it stays. probabile gotprobably going to be a bitter change in that order, but I think those will bethe top four teams. They got port in a fifth just be seen out just his form.Against top eight teams is still a bit of a warrior than we touched on it,probably a few episodes ago. They got west coast finishing and its sixrichmond seventh and sinny eight. I just can't. I don't know I l I'd loveto see Sidney finish higher than that, but I just I can't put bridgeman eight.I just know they're too good for that, but obviously they are sliding and, Ithink they're. Obviously, obviously those players are getting a bit old andit's been Altonia for them and if there's one lesson we've learned overthe last sort of four or five years is don't count Richmond out, so lots of people talking about is justthe end is. Is the end, I'm not going to say it yet, because just how many times, I've bet againstsome and they've prove me wrong or all this and that so yeah I I'll live in atseven, and I can definitely see them still going deep into finals becausethey're obviously September great, but this is probably the most vulnerablethey've been since about two thousand and seventeen, I ments fair to say Yep yeah. So, as a few of US know, I've been a bitbiased on my lot of prediction, this season and I'm gonna, I'm I'm not goingto do it this way. Oh, no, I can't don't bring myself to do it after afterThursday nights display, but yeah this top four is just so tightlike it's so hard to spit. Him wouldn't...

...be surprised if they all ended up onthe exact same amount of winds, but I'm just going to I'm going to keepMelbourne on top. I just think that while they're, probably the mostinconsistent of that big for a there, they have the most wins at the moment,with a huge percentage still and they've just shown that they can beatthe good teams on any given day, which is very valuable. That would definitelyrather be in their shoes than a side like port who beats the beat nine towiten by a hundred and twenty in Carbatha team, I'm Goin I've got the bull dogs in itssecond Ju Long. Third, I would not be surprised if Jalon actually won theminor premises, Ip they've. They looked really good Thursday night and theirteam on mate on papers. Just ridiculous, like their list, is insane if theydon't like they're coming right up to the end of the window. We know that,but if they don't win it, this season, there'll be there should be some headscratches going on behind the sands there and then Brisben. Fourth portfifth huge tea break after the top for, but I'd still put poured in at fifth.Do you have him at first last week I did, I said, provided regato O N had anpretty easy fixture after that, but I can't say it's doing it any more, andour percentage is a lot worse as well. Yeah I've got Richmond at six. Still for theexact reasons you just mentioned, you can never count them out. You just know:they'll hit form they're, definitely the most vulnerable. They have beenover this dynasty. Looking a lot worse, we're not a lotworse but worse than each of the past four years, but they'll still, theystill do damage come finals, west coast. Seventh, they still haven't shown. Theycan went away from home. We know how well they can play optics, but they'regoing to drop they're going to drop games away, and then I've still got theson es in there to round her at the eight Pretty Stockstadt top out for me, butyeah any further comments, or should we headinto the next segment yeah? I don't. I don't see those top eight teamschanging now. It's obviously been that way for about six ten eight weeks now,so obviously the orders going to switch and be interesting to see whereeveryone finishes, but yeah can't see Frio really going into the top eightthere and then go as the other team, but yeah. I can't see I don't everreally make in it so yeah. It will just be a matter of who finishes where Yepan especially after their drawing ans north. You can't be joining North ifyou want to make the top at a as God tirents right we're going to we're going to doour top ten rockmen in the Al Rankins. We we're going to do we're going torank each team's top Rahman as a top a ten, but we've decided to just go furtop ten rockmen with a few honorable mentions and thisyear as well yep to clear up any more any confusions. Just this is form so ye before you before the north fence.Actually north, I don't have any fans so ye eole. Don't have to worry aboutthat, but I will start with some honorable mentionsI'LL: Kick it off? I've got Mat Flin in there. I know he's kind of He's, hardly he's hardly even his teamsfirst Rachman anymore, but when he when he was playing as the rock man which hehas done for more than half the season, he'sactually been really good for them and honestly near the top town, he's beenputting out great numbers and he's pretty hand easy key Ford as well as wesaw in the weekend. Stephen Martin I've gone in there,probably I mean he's, definitely not a top half rockmen, but you can see theimpact he's had on the board ogs this season just allowing them. I feel tofinally get some first use of the ball doesn't really offer anything aroundthe ground, but has had a big act on his team. And finally, this black-probably not deserving of an honorable mention but mark Pittin et, is a bit ofit he's a bit of a meme after last season, but he has improved, he'simproved a lot over the off seas and far better starts this season. Gettinga few more touches, I mean last season the OD Games, where I get like threetouches and he absolutely ruined my room. A super coach season that yearI've traded him in after his two S, yeah he has improved and I don't knowhe's just a average Rakan who has played every game and been serviceable, we'll go or do your onable mentions andthen we'll start at ten and work our way up to as yeah I've definitely gotfleeing. There, obviously can't just can't fit him in there because probablymissed too many games with the giants. Obsession with Mumford, which is kindof fair enough. I thing about five and over with him and then in five with outin but yeah flins, exactly the type of player I'd want saints to go for,because he's obviously shown so much since his dave game- and I feel, as Iwould be, the perfect replacement for...

...rider is that sort of rock forwardswing roll, because you can obviously play in the rock endon a forty lookedreally good up for on the weekend and probably had better a cay for a lot ofthe Games so he's in there. Obviously putting up alot of great numbers, but yeah it'll be interesting to see what happens withthe rockbere go around this year, whether he sticks with them probablywill unfortunately but wait and see there and yeah pine as well, obviouslyvery service Hoba for them. Obviously, they're both preferred rock men at themoment, Stephen Martin's, obviously being good for the dogs, as he touchedon so yeah. I've got about the same there. No one else really to add there.You know the like, I'm not going to bother throwing in the likes of Andrewfilt or anything but yeah. I was tramped back yeah I done now, if Icould do that, but I've got Patty Ryer in that I haven't managed to feel himinto the top tens, because you missed probably a couple too many games yepand he isn't having those best on ground performances, as he's had lastyear yea. So I've just had to leave him out, but those Minora mentions Yep Yep.If we were including last season and previous seasons, I probably would havehad patty rider in my top ten. But just numbers numbers haven't been this good.This season, prob might be a bit due to the SaintsBin Down, but he's getting old as well to be fair tothe great man. I reckon we rotate so to go one by one in it number ten I'veactually gone with Matlin counterpart in Shane. Mumford hasn't played manygames, but when he has his surprisingly being really good, especially towardthe start, he was getting a huge hit out numbers and taking big clanksaround the ground as well and, as you said, five and o five and o withMumford five, no with the admors meting like that. So he has had a fuge impact on the giantsand they have looked a much better team with him in there. Even though flingsbeing good as well Yeah Agra O, you obviously notice hissort of looking work around the ground is ferocity. You know it's not reallythe style that many rockmen play at the moment. However, I've gone is going to becontroversial. I've gone with your boy, Scott Life set just hasn't, playedenough games to work his way up ahead of the guys ahead of him, but I wasobviously being very good for them and obviously paid a lades and all thathave gotten a bit of the light in a fit. Last few weeks, BAS o us have been verypromising through there but yeah. I look if I said it played just aboutevery game. This year, he'd be in there, but obviously hasn't so has found hisway in at ten, but he's obviously better play than that, but yeah it'll be good to hopefully get rid of all the deadweight rack when I've got in it. Sorry, the good recommen the dead way teamsI've got coming up here and to see lie, set progress all the way in September,but yeah yeah, fair enough. Unfortunately, BigScotty can cast me Henry. I got done for four weeks with a it's not to astiff, but am in it number nine I've got the Nankfrom Richmond he's huge for them. Obviously, nowhere near the hid outabilities of some of these other big men, but he's arguably one of the bestrockmen around the ground takes huge. Interset marks gets a lot ofpossessions really mobile. You know you see rockmen that just look like they've just been pulled off the of the street, whodon't know how to kick a footy, but Mak looks semi coordinated and shows itwith his with his numbers and work around the ground. Yep. I've also got a naked at nine aswell is obviously one of those rapin thatyou know they're not going to get the same numbers as gone and granning allthat, but in terms of Richmond and Richmond's game plan and the way theyplay, I thin he's really good for them. Obviously, the way he gets around theground, so it's their fast. A tackin game style really well season. Rackingut about fifteen touches about every week and it's often down back, which isnot taken huge and set marks, which is not a thing that many rock men do inthe a fl or lest they do. But you don't. I don't notice it as much as I do withNan. I think nakes, probably one of the most prominent Kay offensive, interceptmarks that I've, seen least in recent years, he's been really good for them.Obviously, Richmond got him for capers chips, so there was a very handy pickup, for them is obviously contributed a lot for them over the last few years,but just another service bole year for Nank and is a big reason why they'veobviously done so well and obviously with Chile, I'm no child, sorry Solomissing a lot of the weights been put on him, but yeah, obviously just donereally well for them. Yeah yeah, that's probably his best trait is ability toget behind the foot and take in to set marks which adds to Richmond's alreadyelite defense. I remember when we played them that laid overly took aboutsix in a set marks all from all from...

...our defensive kicking. They just markit outside their tacking. Fifty, which made me hate him for a couple of hours.Patie is a good blow in at number. Eight. I have got RileyO'Brian, who probably should be higher than this, but just did not didn't.Have a good start to the year is finding form now, but we all know howgood he is, and it's going to have a huge career he's still young, like the Nank huge work around theground can take big marks, get behind the footy and within additive with anadded you know, tap tapping hit out ability,which is obviously the main role of a Rachman, but I just think he hasn'thasn't been his best season this year so far, but he has beat building. So Iexpect him to increase in the power ranking in weeks to come. Yeh A hundred percent Agra I'veactually got team English, who is obviously we all know about him,obviously still developing a lot in terms of his body and his game, butbecause of that spends a lot of time up forward and obviously because of that,it's a bit of a it's a bit hard to judge on where youput them in the list on this list. But I've gone in here because you knowobviously sometime the future e develops. His body he'll probably takea little bit longer than others to develop it. But these ability to playup for what has been really handy for for him and kick a few bags because ofthat height and that sort of I guess forward craft that he's got IMis a real weapon for them. So I is really really talented because at thatheight, when you can obviously like you mentioned picking rockmen off thestreet and he's still get a very nice kick on him and very good, like you so yeah in terms of a rock when we'reall T, usually pretty dopy, he's actually looks like he's. Really Nice pickie bunch there. So I'vegot English in at eight, like I said pretty hard since the town, because helovly obviously missed a few games this year. So it's a bit of a controversialpick, but I just think just going forward. He always looks like such athreat in those marking contests up forward. I'd, say: English is justabout one of the best in the Aflatun, those even given his sort of lightstature, but ye at the end of the day, I'm going to leave me at eight yeah TimEnglish is who I want. Pete Latins to try and become an ultimately becomebetter than obviously not there yet, but they've got a lot of few similar qualities. Ladans is probably better in the Rock,but English. Definitely a better mark. Better K forward number seven few north fans out thereactually you'll probably be disappointed. These is slow, but hasnot the best of seasons, especially you know, compared to his usual standards,but tod Goldstein had a great game on the weekend has been has still been.You know one of the best rockmen in the league, but yeah. I think it's justbeen an average year for him and there's just been other blokes thathave been slightly better, so the man's in it seven. For me, Yep, I got the exact say one as well:Wot Gold in at seven, obviously just getting pretty old, so his numbers arejust a bit on the declining side of things, as they are for obviously a lotof rockmen that are getting towards the end of their careers, but it'sobviously been huge player for them in the entirety ofhis career and still manage to get really good numbers in the middle of the contest,clearances and all that, so he's obviously been a huge player for thembe yea. Like I said coming to the end of his career, I remember there wascome what year was more in two thousand and fifteen, while he was Goldie andSteph Martin for Brisbane had two of like the best super coach seasons, themodern era- or at least it was a for fares. Remember he that wouldconsistently cock up. One is every game so that, while it was a career, he wasobviously an absolute animal. Still still is a very quality player but yeahcoming to the end of his career, so talk a meat seven, at least it. Youknow at his age to get to seven, obviously still a really good fate, butyeah yeah exactly right and we do lovegoldies a fan favorite. I think it's kind is one of those players where youjust can't hate him. I don't know if it's because of his head or is or is alike that just seems like one of those, not nice,guys great blocks, so good good on him. For that number, six I've actually gonewith my boy here, Scott last set. This is definitely higher than probably anynon port fan would have him, but I get to watch him every week and he's justhuge for us, and especially this season before I got suspended, he's just he's really good around the ground.Really Mobile can take marks can get twenty touches, but he's also reallyimproved his hit outs over the last two years, especially- and he you know hecan he contends with you- know, grandy and stuff doesn't really doesn't getbeaten too badly. It would be like...

...thirty to twenty, six or whatever sohe's really important, and you can, I know, we're missing budders and allthat lot, but he's definitely been the biggest absence for us. This seasonwe've gone to we've pretty much gone to shit ever since he's been out and Ladimhasn't even been that bad in his in his spot, to be fair, but just a huge, ahuge out force and will be good to get him back this week, just touching on Ladim. So I need a Imade. I bring in a lot it to do the perfect trade that I want to do. I needto bring it a for it's about four hund forty K and there's just not manyoptions at all, and I looked at Laddin's I thought were but thenobviously notice s got lie set ing back, so they got rid of that plan, but yeahI jus wish he could like it could. Just you know, do an AC or somethingtraining tomorrow and that was sold. My succade to but ladans are genuinely bea top six port. If, if that happened, yeah, if, if you play number one rockbut yeah, I I love the the enormous difference between if license in therein the few isn't yeah between lambs is a some formans, but yeah and number six.I've got rolie. Brian obviously had a poor start, the silo season, buthe was playing under an injury cloud and he seemed to have gotten over itnow. So that's very Hanny for him he's obviously been a huge play for the last couple ofyears since he broke out and became the preferred rock man over Sam Jacobs. Just yeah huge work around the groundtakes lots of really good marks in contest, and all that and yeah torment, like like we said out,gold is a huge fan. Favorite. The great man, probably because of his head aswell, but yeah gets down back, gets forward,obviously not the most fluent kickin star, but at the end of the day he isan animal and yeah. It deserves to be a number six given. He was one of his topto rockmen that could ease been chopped at any any time before he sort of letdown on to the scene, and so it's good to see those type of players comethrough and formulate really promising careers. But I'm yeah it's good to seethese out of the injury cloud now and playing his best foot, because yeah like, like, I said, he'sjust a quality player when he said his best yep. Definitely a good player andhe's going to be an elate Ratan in his prime in it number five. I knew thisguy had been good, but when I looked at it, when I look through the stats, Iwas like Holy Shit, but Shawandasee has just been absolute animal for Frio he'she's averaging like a hundred ten super coach or something like that which isgenuine late numbers, but yeah you can tell you can tell the impact he has onthe Games. He's he's a huge huge man wins most of the top outs and is aroundthe ground is really improved. This season, you can take mark and get theball and just has a massive impact for Frio Yeah. When he's not out there, thedefinitely a fat worst side, one of the most suppresed players inthe camp. This season, a hundred percent agree. I read him that much I've got him higherthan that. So at the moment I've actually got Tom Hickey at five h h.They were tight for me yeah. That was a very tight call. We've obviously gotthe top three, the same, the same three players and yeah four and five withtheir own category is hard to split them, but I've got Tom Hickey in a five.It's obvious been a revelation for the spans this year. You know, as a pastsits player. It's it's good to see these guys get an opportunity given,though absolute spuds on our list, but he's obviously been really good for theswans and is work around the ground. All that's been awesome and you know every time it was one of thoseplayers. Every time you got the ball. You know you put your hand to your headtignish what you goin to do now, but yeah. This year's lootings obviouslybeen really good for them and had that miraculous recovery from a injury Imean paying at one of our mates said he'sused about three or four train to topic in this year because of it, but yeah he's obviously been also thisyear's grade to see him thrive in that New Swan's, an Environ man and justsort of refraine revitalized, his career in Ewif. He is, if he was a bitmore popular he'd, also be one of those fair favorites like Obrian Goldie, andthis time was definitely Nicaso. The pill. Yeah he's yeah he's been a very solidplayer, so worthy of a top five spot for this year in terms of the rapinyeah yeah definitely grew with the art. The fame fan. Favorite call he's gotone of them, one of the funnier heads in the AL and obviously I've obviouslygot him a number four. He just piped Shawan Darcy. For me, I think Darcy isarguably a better numbers this season, but I think just the impact Hickie hadon the swan as this year. If you take him out, I mean I don't think they'rethere in the top, eight he's been one of the best players andprobably up there in the best in fairs, with CAL mills and maybe a couple ofothers, but yeah he's just been huge, which is good to see. Do you know if hee...

...did he play in the grand final West orwest coast, or did he not play because that no e, it was Vadnoit Yeah Yeah? Iactually don't know. Hicky was on the list at that. I wasn't it it oh, hemight have made, but I know I was yeah. I Vardi was the one in the yeah I can'tremember, which year he go on to Eagle Yeah. If he might have went thefollowing year, actually yeah but anyway, so you've got Darcy at for I've gotDarcet for I've, never seen game of thrones, but I think many people havetaunted him as hod or I think you pronounce it within a at right now,yeah, it's Hodo. I think you got drawn comparisons in his Davy game. I remember his day in the game. I wasagainst Jalon at GHB and I was a bit of a blyas you'd. Imagine any fray were a bit worse back then, but Lin he crushed thehit out on debut record by about more than double just came in. As that number one rockycould tell this. Guy was an absolute based in the rock and it was justaround the ground what he can do, but he's clearly worked on that and he'sclearly a much better play because of it and his work up forward as well asbeen huge for them. So I think that's going to be a nice little partnership,Darcy and Tracy, going forward for the Dockers Yep Ye Darcy's gain that rock forward status on April fantasywas been handy, but yeah he's obviously been a huge playfor them this year and it's just he's really nailed on that consistency. Imean, if you look at the numbers of it every week now, which is what you wantfrom your rock man, you don't want them sort of getting bait and every two orthree weeks you want the consistent players in theirs doing their hindyards. If they're, not winning the contest in the rock you want themaround the ground, maybe kicking a couple of goals, that's exactly whathe's doing and as just stamped himself in there as their main rack for thenext sort of decade, so being awesome for him and the dockersas well, because they had a bit of the had about three or four of Manicontention for that this year, who ere all probably at the right age to getthat spot and obviously dare he's taking it with both hands. So it's been awesometo see him do that, for the dockers yeps being huge, he's a is an absolutegun three hour, making a habit of developing some absolute Goliath intheir in their rocks Yep. So on to the big three to cleartop three ranking them was pretty tough. I think it kind of depends what youwant in a rockmen because they're all slightly different, but I've gone withBrodie Grundy at number three. I just I'll speak about nicknack. Now I justthink his. What he brings is slightly more significant and importing theoutcome of a match than grandy obviously depends what you want and rapman. What's what situation your teams in, but just what Nick Nat when youtake nicknack out of west coast, it's just there a whole different side. Hejust gives him gives their midfield is first use every time and they just Kkick goals out of the center bounce, especially optics like no man'sbusiness, and he kicks girls as well himself and gets clearances so yeah, but grundy, obviously absolutegun. Arguably, the most mobile rockmen in the league gets the most disposalsout of all them. Clearances tackles just does everything most mostversatile rockmen in the camp, esily yeah have to agree. I've also gotGrande in at three a yeah, his ability to get around the ground, and you know,rack up twenty, sometimes close to thirty touches. A game is really vitalfor them, and obviously his work in the Rock contest is obviously superior, andyou know it takes really good marks around the ground, but yeah, like yousay, I've got obviously the other two ahead of him. Just because of yeah,like you said, Nina as the impact on a game and a big game is huge, and it's just about the onlyplay in the comtat can do that and then go on like we. We, you know ees,nothing need to be said there. Just his ability of just about conquerer marketcomes to him and to taps about every ball that gets thrown into his learningmidfield or is a second to Dan, so yeah yeah I've just got those two guys aheadof Grandy, because obviously, at the end of the day, you do you know,although is obviously extra sort of two thousand and twenty five touches a afile for your acmen. But at the end of the day you it's a difficult thing to put itbecause you obviously what you're up and getting high disposer numbers, butyou'd. Rather your Brockman had the qualities I sayof gone and Nick Nat, more so than your rock been getting to thousand twentyfive touches. If that makes sense so yeah, it's obviously got they've allgot UNCANNILIE, but in their own respects. So I ranked the other twoover Grundy. I that make sense. Ye've got him in a three yearde Nick Aden,gon, especially nicknack just theirability, to make their mid fieldsthat much better...

...is probably something for the best way.To put it probably something that grandy doesn't quite have wace has it,but just not to the same extent, yeah I've got nicknack to go n one. Wedid you have the opposite or no. I had nick that to one one as well yeah I say Gordon, it's just anabsolute animal, just yeah I mean just around the grounding. You know justabout every time it gets put on his head. He takes it, so I mean that'sprobably the deciding factor for me. Obviously, that's huge out of thatcenter bouts for elapse, but yet, at the end of theday I think Goranus he's just an absolute animal for them around theground. I don't hit too many people be differing with that mist either. Ithink. Obviously they I had the big three, but I think you're gone and Nika.I think it's going to be the most common order. Yep Yep agree there right, O so good little segment. There,we'll move into a little bit of super coach chat o recollection just quickly,honestly ask you quest if you're the coming with this madge, but weobviously talk a lot about these sort of rock scenarios and in terms of how much they're worth andI'm a be. I I think we had this similar question the potty a couple months ago,prolit hammer- and he said you know, what's your call in the rocks- and Isaid you know the Myra support players on the ground and all that you know Ilaughed at the critics of the rocks, but yeah would you have paid grandy thesame amount of money that as the pies did considering, they obviously had tolaugh offload two players, Tralore and Stephenson Yeah? Would you have paidgrande that amount given they're also still in financial troubles, as hasbeen documented and they're probably going to hit it again this off season? Would you have paid granby the sameamount or would you have let him more yeah? That's a tough one. I think inhindsight, you'd probably have to say that you wouldn't do it just because ofwhat's actually happened to them having to let go of those players, asyou said, and just coming right out of finals contention, which is a bitunfortunate, but at the time it was just afterthey'd lost that grand finer right. It was after o thousand and eight en Imean they probably just thought they're, probably just doing everything they canto try and secure that premiership, which is fair enough. But in hardsetI'd probably say that yeah have to agree with you on that oneyeah I like, as we've saying you, can you pick off a pretty good rockmen fornot much at all, whether it's a a draft or from another list, so yeah yeah? Ithink they were obviously very desperate to get that flag, but at theend of the day, given it's meant that they've lost to law, Stephenson TomPhillips and bottled by Sander they're, not out of it yet so yeah in hindsight, given they almoststarted a mini rebuilt after it and he's take up a lot of cats base. Ye, Iwould have done it either yet, but yeah Yep yeah. I I a wonderful thing. Those arethe troubles of being a list manager, but yeah we'll get into it. A super coach it. Firstly we'll go wild you scorethis week. I got one nine, six, nine! Oh, I got one nine eight three, so thatwould have been a rank increase for you as well they're right yeah. I jumped upeight hundred and ninety, but it's this week that I'm pumped for I'm going torise a few more hopefully but yeah yeah you're, mentioning Pretty Potty thatyou've planned for the Oplanti intand yeah everyone's sayingI've got about eight or ten players of a in. My group channel, like I'mchilling here projected over like about two thousand and fifty and I'm ready,but yeah cork was saying that Mo. I think it was mos had like seven players,a yeah he's an MIT, a stroke. Yeah that's die yeah. I moved up six sevenhundred and sixty two spots sending that twenty four hundred, which islovely, not a bad, I mean considering the start, I'm not like that, satisfiedwith it, but I'll take the good week and it's not the worst spot to being in.Obviously yourself yeah in it three five six two is morejust about long term. At my team I conserved a bit of trade, the start ofthe year, whereas everyone else out bet through them, but a bet yeah exactly soI've conserved but yeah I've used a I've used, basically every single one Ican in the last for a couple of months, but yeah, I'm striking out a teamsystem out there, so yeah yeah I've got I'm going to have to use all fourtrades this week to field a tame provided and that's provided lockyJones and the Senan forwards, don't get dropped or man if Jones had an absoluteshock Er. So I'm not confident he keeps his spot, but my team is pretty muchfull premo. Now I've just got like M P, F, X and crit and mat hopefully I'llbeable to upgrade them, but teams not...

...looking too bad to be fair, that's lovely! What are the tradeslooking like? Well, actually Char and look Parker.Finally, fucking them off betten, absolutely disgraceful, especially nicelittle stupid chair, especially Sharaf. He didn't even make me any money. Ipick him up for like four hundred K and he just stayed there. I don't know what's and then the weekafter I got him, the news comes out that he's unhappy at Frio once once tocome back to Melbourne or whatever so that cut, but I'm looking at gettingWalsh and another midfield are looking at Michu or merit or Tom Mitchell. Oneof those guys. I can't afford the Bonton Poles and parishes,unfortunately yea and then afford I'm liking the look of Karl Langford,but you and another good mate fitty. Both don't write Langford as a playerand are fording him. Apparently, that's all fat tales go because I'm a similar boat, an I I dorate life it. I just I like all I didn't say any at: I don't rate lengthat I just first of all, I looked through twitter and saw some he playssmot player. Sorry fad had been using as the whipping boy the last few years,but it's more so of the fact that I think demons me is coming back thisweek and they're going to get shielding about three weeks. I think it's just it's this time of the yearwhen we're going into a single figure trades, I don't want to bread. It'syeah, I'm really tossing up whether to bring in someone that's Goin, to get rotated at a little bit.More Thou have men field in the coming weights, but the end of the day they've had a few players roll throughthe last few weeks and length or still scored well, so I'm kind of hoping ityet. I don't know I'm undecided at this point, because currently I've got three andfifty two paine bank can down grade pulled to a rookie sothat free to about five hundred and fifty kto upgrade the lifes of Jordanmccrea fucking Heni was the worst trading of. Ah That's a tain caractyeah, exactly could have had lane could have picked lengthen over him, but Ijust yeah, I hadn't said enough of manted, obviously so yeah I'm in asimilar boy. I think it's a Nice Il discussion for this week about whichmidfield is to bring in because if you don't go for that sort of top tip priceof the parishes and all out of the world you're looking at, like the mainones, are olive wine, Sam Walsh, the ones you said of Zarah and Tom Mitchell.Jabs Gabe spoke as well, I'm throwing the was Borka well yeah, probably nothumor clogged and not danger at the moment. I'd probably ste clear ofDuncan, if I was on, if I'm honest, but bread crap I'd go for, but he has tobuy. Obviously so I was. I was believing I'd locked in volting to myteam, every single plan idea that involved in, but I don't know if it'sonly us to be too worried to be out. We should be to be worried about, but he'splaying gwas twice in the run home. You've got to board this week and hewas also gone in round twenty three, which is grand fine a week, and that isa young because exactly because, first of all he's obviously what is he s, RHes, two thousand and twenty one? He is third year he's never caught the tablebefore we've seen what happened to bray show when he copis first hags yeah andstill happens, he's obviously a young body, so thelights of the boys ten years on him- and this is all and the assumption thatthe ball goes to him- could very well go to Patrick criks. But I think it'sgetting to the stage we've got a tag. Will shove him now and got to stoptrading walks like a kid, because he he's done thirty every game in years, agun. So I'm really sort of tossing up whatto do, because why debated the moment is him or wants? Is the main one and I'velooked up? Wince he's obviously been huge, O the last sort of month,obviously two scores of a hundred and thirty and a hundred and forty, but I'mjust sort of a bit gon. If he goes back to his, you know round one to eightperformances where he got one one hundred and forty and then just twolone hundreds and the rest of sub hundred so yeah. I don't know if youcan give some insight into that, but yeah I'm just sort of tossing up, asI'm sure many other people are as well and how to finish off the midfieldwhich one to go for so I don't know if there's any you know is a port supportabout lines and whether I should pick him or not pick him. I've got someadvice there for your. What I basted off, I actually gottravis spoke last week over in based on the fact that wines is having a careerbest year and brownlow contention year and was only averaging. A hundred andfour and then Boki is having ugly a Dane and was averaging a hundred andten and he's off the bay so had I got a...

...chance to rest up so, especially givenhis fifty K. cheaper, go Boki, not going to lie that the bare comment has put a spanner in the work: it's a yeah, it's it's not pretty. Inot especially he's got him twice. Yea We have seen De bore put on some forward tag as well, so we might go to start of Dohony, but I'd probably sayhow we go to Welsh yeah, it's a huge pan of work becausehe's obviously got potential to be a top eight mid. So it's really annoyingand unfortunately, wines plays first. So you can't see whether you know youcan't see the second to pull the game, whether debars running to Walsh or not,but hopefully, baby boks can get some in sight and to what's going to happenas I ad some help, but I'm just yeah there's a few combinations of lookingat you know. Looking at likes have gone to someone cheapers. I can get a betterpremo like to Dan Houston, and you know someone like Harris Andrews orsome of that and defense, I'm just yeah, just a bit stuck and I'm just not sonlengthed. So it's been annoying, it's a little one. I don't know it's a little negativethat I found in this whole beauty of having five hundred a D. fifty K T atgrade a couple players but yeah it it stuck wanted to, but yeah yeah yeah with Langford, I'm probablyjust going to send it because I'm at the point of the year, I'm just justgoing high risk a reward. I think I think, even with shield back, I thinkthere's still a spot in the rotation. I don't think Dev Smith will play inthere if he does then Langis fucked, but he just got S. that's a huge upsidebecause I think if he plays in there he can average up to a hundred and tenwhich we've San over the last couple weeks and the end of the last season.Two, but anyway yeah it's a quick shit out, Tommy homeras well for saving US A. I don't have you still trading at this way? No, thatwas another. That was another yeah T. are you gonna you're going to keep himor get rid of him? Yeah he's on yeah now he's HIVEN. I think Marthy is goingto have to stay as my d, seven and eight cover so yeah. I look looks good a Tommy Hamois,probably overtake Colfield, for intercepting marking role, so it hashopefully stamped his job security. Now, a little bit more than previouslyColfield looks like a lost player, so those that have him. I wouldn't advise getting rid of himbecause, or at least yet, because I think is jobs- cares a lot higher nowhe is obviously a mature age recruit. So he's not one of those eighteen yearolds that you need to worry about S. obviously only one week end, but Ithink he's really sort of stand that job security well yeah. I watched himlast week, come off the bench and score like six, but I'm pretty sure is yeahsLarou starting defence as a lock down gave way, probably to trees, and then Ithink yeah. Then he played forward for about a quarter in a bit and in at somepoint it was rolling through the midfield so yeah. I think it was a bit.It was a bit of a road call from us, but yeah like yeah, that we found likethat's how Calboli came into the team for us came in as an intercepting mark.An is now come in and being a really well at least one of the few playersthat are still rate the same. A really underrated, Lock Down Kate Fender isallowed Tommy Hamewart come through his intercepter, but yeah. I E he's.Hopefully stand is job security, then honestly Yep all right. Well, all thebest for this week, mate in super coach hope you can hope we can get a dub riseup. The rankins we'll finish it off here with we did this last week. FewQuick Fire Sports Bet line predictions so I'll. Just I'll get him up here youcan as well. If you want, will start it with media sweet, but yeah, not many games,but quite this way will start off with two long. Doggies believe this is atSimmons to long for long arm. Minus seven point five, which way youlearning I'm liking to long in terms of the tipso I'll back him to win by more than eight points. Yep, I tend to agreethere or I can know, they'll get done and they're looking they're lookingscary at the moment, I have to say: Gol Cost portaled in goal coast plusseventeen and a half for Goldy yeah. I also back in port ten by threegoals. There yeah go cos on a top act team, so I could probably back us intoyeah, but a fair amount. Thro three guysisn't much, so I think we'll get that Dun North Brisbane. I think this is. Idon't know where this is they. I think it's got a Lanston again right and theyhave a thirty three and a half point. Handicap M: I'M gonna go O, I'm gotBruzon go north here we saw what happened last week, but I can't rememerthe last time but has been played there.

So I would have probably been againsthow form, but yeah I'm like a north, far think they've obviously play thatground pretty compared to other teams, fair enough that that one bit me on theass last week and it probably really den this week, but I was a can't saynorth contending with the lions giants, carton giants, minor, sat and ahalf at tiny show ground. This is a tough one. Just want to flipwith the coin yeah a very huge, the feeling, cart and justhave to yeah you get the feeling. Cartan have to win a game sooner orlater. I E it one of these type of games I mean, but I'm still going to go. Do US yeah, like so like Mat, fled, mightkick like four goals or something yeah. I think if I just go with theduck feeling I just I can just see the giants winning by more than that to behonest, yeah, O and just start cutting it, and it is that the in Sydney. So that's a big advantageand lastly, hawks bombers, hawks plus eleven and a half at a Rora stadium. Isthat that Tazzi, I think, yeah it's Tazi as well, so we know how well theycan they play that as well Harton, so yeah evy other ground in the world. I'dbe going Essendo in a heart beat, but I'm not sure about this one, his mines, a toughie is, I still yeah.I still think I'll go asinine, because I've also been in a decent form, thelast sort of month or so. But I this is the type of game thatHorton all come out and perform well and probably win so I'll, probably endup regretting my call there, but I'm going to go as an en yeah I'm going togo the opposite. I'm going to go hawthorn very good in Tazzi, and a lot of otherteams struggle down there and coming off a good wind, so surelythey'll take some form into it. They probably won't but Hopi back him into alot tin. The last cap it close to get within two girls, all right, we'll pick up well pick which one we like the mostout of all them, I'm going to go with port. I think that's a that's a lockthree goals. I like I'll, educate that one well. I have a feeling that I have afeeling that Joe Long's form is hitting at the right time. Ithink it will only get better and especially at Ghb a I think I mighttake the cuts at negative. Seven point: Five Yeah. I think, as we saw againstport it was that sort of the domination of Jolon for line in. So I compared to port at lads- I mean-might be the same this week, yeah life, I e, the Betra, I think, aregoing to keep tree at least ten combined again against the likes of youknow, Bruce and Laughton, who I don't know if we'll kick that many so yeah,I'm going to take that one. They have some point five to the cats. They'd bemy second pick as well. I think they're, I think they're both locks might mightdouble some coin into them. If I fief, I have enough fears in me, which Iprobble that will say anyway, we'll wrap it up there quick shot out toKolka thanks for thanks for giving us an opportunity to step up. Hopefully,I've done a good job and yeah thanks for listening T.
