Hallo and welcome back to the on theball podcast now, as you can probably tell this, is not a usual host HamishMalca Nal! He is off busy with exam, so is Christian pilcere, so I'm going tobe taking it solo. Today, I'm going to be talking about the round fourteenreview, as well as a round fifteen preview. We're also going to have a bitof an AL draft segment in there, I'm better than off seas and nuffin myself,cop a lot of stick for it, but the end of the day. It's just one of thoseweird little things I love to enjoy about the A fl.It's just awesome to see players being potentially put into new jumps and allthat so we're going to touch on that for a bit, but let's quickly dive intothe round fourteen review at the time of recording this is the Thursday nightcurrently brisband and along are playing. I've actually got that onright next to me, so every now and there and got a very, very quick glanceat the score at the moment. At the time of recording, it is thirty one to oneBRISBIN's favorite quarter time, so it's been a huge game so far for thelions, locky meal has heard his shoulder slightly, but I guess when you're hearing this you'llknow exactly how that's played out for him so round. Fourteenwe're not going to talk about it too much. There was only about five gamesplayed, but will quickly recap it off with the game of the round Jolon, BullDogs. This had all the hype going into it and it certainly delivered weobviously all know, but the gary row and kick after the siren. This game wasa huge test for the dogs going to g MBA. It's probably the most demanding taskfor any team in the competition going down there and playing the cats at thecattery just about no team get it done, and unfortunately the dogs joined that list of teams. They were seconds orjust even a kick away from sealing that victory, but of course the man go aronput it through. I was actually at a bar and Brighton and a few boys next to uson another table. One of them had five grand on the cats to win in head a head.So strange bet that one, but it obviously paid off. So they were one ofthe winners of the week for me to cats, I'm not going to put the dogs in as aloser a m. It was a very hard for match by them. Their stars, bon to Pellymccray, obviously stood up for them had huge games in the midfield and it wasyeah. It was a bit gunning to not see them get up because for most of thematch they were. The better team. Josh Bruce was having one of his best gamesfor the dogs, Arinos, also a good target up forward until he got hurt but yeah. It was overall, a huge gameto watch and probably one of the Games of the year, if not the game of theyear, so that was an unbelievable one. The next one on the day after I wasGolchossa, quite have the same atmosphere. I guess it was obviouslyjust ports frustrated from the get go apart from the first goal kicked by thesun's. Portus completely ran away with it. Charlie Dixon was huge up forwardfor them, but over all it was the big Man William drew the has m cacodyl hostlook alike that took it away in the midfield, for them he's keeping timerock lifee side of the moment. The twenty seven touches and seven tacklesalongside olly wines, you had a phenomenal forty three touches abasically at all and contested had six tackles and eight marks as well. So itwas a huge game for poor just to rack up a few stats. Really. They also hadthe emergence of Mars Bergman off half back so for those super cage pantersout there kind of took Locke Jones as a role. So it's great to see a local boy inMalsburg and get a big opportunity for them down back as a huge game formyself, most put a three leagues Amo melty On for Conno rosy. To kick threeis the big risky wine and the obviously did it. So it was nice to pocket a bitof cash there. I am going to put Gold Coast as a big loser out of that game, more so than portoutled winning. For obvious reasons, this time it was at Golconda, so therewas always a potential of a goal coast to turn up. However, they didn'tbanking, their Speerin, they're, sorry, their spear head and attack was Kat towell. I say two goals am also the three touches that highlighted his impact onthe game it just apart from Totila the midfield we still out with thirty oneand Jackal coaches, and will poll were very good of half back. There was justno real standards for them at all, so it's just the continuous goal coastdisplay where they have a lot of sort of ten twenty touch players that don'thave an overall impact on the game. It's much like Saint Kilda, so yeah this another disappointingperformance for them and we're going to talk about how they could potentiallyimprove with that in our sit in our middle, the episode segment so going onto the next game. On that day, it was, of course North Melbourne Brisband theblockbuster game, no I'm just kidding...

...but yeah. I guess we all sort of wentinto this hope in the north. Melwin could replicate. His performance fromthe previous week obviously drew with G WS in what was probably the match ofthe round. Surprisingly, but e Bin were always in it, it was kind of helped bya bit of wet weather footy in the second half a lot of kites was a bit ofa scrappy game, but over all the lines were just too good. Obviously, northwere very, very lucky to stay in it. The lines obviously were then they're.Inaccurate cells with four name behinds but yeah at the end of the day, lineswere just too good, obviously killed him in the middle lines. So I jaredisand locking ell obviously had sixty six combined Zack Bailey was another standout for the lines they're just continuing on his as awesome form isjust going on to show the competition that her's the real deal is going to beone of the most exciting players to watch over the next, a sort. Even yearsto come, he had twenty nine disposals and I can't recall him ever gettingthat many. So that's, probably a career high for him also kick a goal. HumanCogis well with thirty one he just continues to solidify his authority- is the number one pickin his draft alongside the likes of Taranto and fellow midfield is so thatwas a bit of a scrap game. No much more to be said, there can't really callworth Mellon a los Er out of that one all the lines of winner, so I justdescribe a game leading up until G W S and Colton well. CALTON's worries continue. Ithink, over the last sort of two or three weeks, we've all expected Coltonto get this one hard, Fort Victory, no manere losses- and you know not in true cult in fashion all theirfans would start booking. Sorry would start canceling their Septemberholidays, but it's just still not coming it's just another, not evenhonorable lost this time. This was just a gadding loss. It was a match that waswell within their grasp in terms of match ups, but unfortunately, yet justonce again, the giants is too good for the Calton, obviously to bar andstraight to San Wash. I think many saw that coming, I certainly did was it was going tocome into my sun coach team, but because of that reason I went and paidup for jared line who I was very happy with, but yet obviously the ball wentstraight to Walsh and it just sort of set the tone from there. No one reallyfrom Calton got going in the match. I think Matt Kennedy was probably one ofthe only glowing lights form in this game. You had twenty seven coming backinto the side, also eight marks and four tackle. So s all gave me, butapart from that, it was all Gwes they obviously let toby green just get offthe handle with four goals and twenty touches was big dodge here and there you know a fewtrippings and or tripping attempts, and all that it was interesting to see himafter the game say that he's not going to change the way he plays. I mean you know we all. You all haveyour own opinions on Toby Green. I personally love him, but obviously tosee these sort of acts is probably not in the spirit of the game. He. It isalways awesome to have a bit of a competitive edge, but at the end of theday you don't want players. Sort of you know trying to like in Tom's case,not get free kicks, but you don't want to see him injuring players and youknow affecting the result of the game in that sense and oone that got off thehandle for gwas Jermy Fin Leyson, who only felt in touches, but within thosethirty, and he had ten marks and five goals. So he's just one of thoseplayers that always gets away from Coltan. They always seem to letTherford lines, especially the light of toby green wine of those sort of mediumsize, forwards, kicker bag, so that was always coming, but yeah Finlayson. Thegiants have been looking for a bit of a Tall Ford Avenue to gold. Look likethey've, been missing Jeremy Cameron for a little bit the last few weeks. Ithink I touched upon that an episode or two ago, but Finlason's stood upexactly where he needed to. He must have heard my criticisms, probably anadded listener, to on the ball podcast but yeah. He was huge for them, JoshKelly Rod, Ankle. We all obviously want to see him out there playing and doinghis best footy. So I fear that isn't serious he's playing again this week,so love to see him out there. A mys are coming all over the place when I sawthat he was named this week. So that's obviously very good for him.So another good one for the giants. They managed to just stay within graspof that top eight, but I think it's getting to the point of of the seasonwhere it's just every game that goes on this is falling a little bit a littlebit more away from their grasp. I think the lowest rank team that is Richmondand Sidney and all, and but I just we just can't see- Richmond falling out ofthe A S is not going to happen so the eagles, the other team. That's in thatbottom, three with those other two teams I just mentioned, but it's justit's just hard to really see those teams fall out of the top, a especiallywith the giants draw the other week, so it was obviously going for the giants.Another reason to not write them off,...

...at least for the next few years, butyeah this one was certainly a loss to colt. If we're going to classify that was just one they just they needed towin. Given everything that's going on, especially with the review. That'sgoing to be happening and David tagus yeah. We don't know whether he's goingto be there next year and Patty crips. I think that that deals just to be atsolidified, but you know he still hasn't signed and by the looks of how their list is going they're goingto have to lose one big fish. They got to free up somemoney so with the lights of McGovern WHO's. Somehow, on sort of upward, insix hundred a d seven hundred can Zack Williams, yeah, don't know about that.I'd love to see this sort of output per dollar that's being paid for himbecause I'm not sure it probably stacks up against the lacks of you know the likes of the top end playsin the competition. You know I'd love to seek Im parisonbetween bredy. My checking him, for example, are my check. Obviously I think he's sure he's off the rookiecontract now, but yeah just talking about our pet person paid, don't knowabout that one there. So, while she's going to have to sign, Ithink he will is a type of loyal. Add to what not that I know him personally,but it seems like a type of lad who would stick to the team that drafts himhe's just one of those dream boys that gets drafted they just sticks to theclub. Does everything you want them to your future captain? Obviously, howhe's going to be staying so, honestly, you throw out the likes of you know. Isit going to be Harry, McKay, obviously, probably not like? Who is it going tobe? We don't know, I think the likes of you know petrosisand Zach Fisher and all those sort of Wei boys that are, I think, Jack Fishis obviously good enough to be in that team. PATRICII set and we don't know,shows a lot of potential and it confers or crying out for him to be playing butyeah. It's just where it's going to come from one player, all this moneythat they need to free up or just maybe a couple of mid pay players, and that'sgoing to be very interesting to see in this and the next off season. The following day. We just had the onegame, but it was a very close one. Hawthorn Esenen the bombers just ranaway with it in the last quarter, with a thirteen point margin once again, notgoing to really name any winners or losers. He, I guess the bombers. It wasgood for them to beat another team that was sort of compared to them prior tothe thousand and twenty one season. So in that recess. In that respect, sorry very solid win for them, and one of theglowing lights, not just in this game but of the whole round, was theperformance of cake, stringer. Obviously much to more, I sort ofdisappointment, it wasn't Carl lanter that really got to go on that mid field,not that he deserves to, because, my God, I don't think I've ever picked aworse for n e N Seventy K player my super coach team. He got a mediocre.Seventy, but blime me that man knows how to butcher a footy anyway. We'regoing to we'll talk about that later, but Jake Stringer had twenty ninerolling through that midfield had seven tackles four goals and just a lazyhundred and eighty ranking or super coach points so just absolutely showcase what just the ship potentially her sorry the ship potential he has. We obviously did the re draft of hisdraft in two thousand and twelve few few episodes back and we all found it abit hard to plan to position him. So I think a few of us sort of went sort offive six and I think I can't remember who it was. I think someone didn't eveninclude him in there, so not that I blame them. It's very hard to put to redraft him. You know knowing string a he's, probably going to do a foot orsomething next week and he's going to be out for another three to four, butit was awesome to see him ruing through that midfield and having the impactthat we all know he's capable of another one that stood out for thebombers was nick hind again much to my well I've sort of got mixed feelingsabout this, so he had twenty five one goal and probably about fifty runningbiases Killis is exactly the to player. Weneed and we got rid of them for pick, seventy, which I think we passed on soyou know fantastically manage, but their saying Kilda, but yeah t at the end of the day. It isawesome to see the kind playing to the best visibility. He was obviouslydrafted as a running half back stupidly. We played it was a half forward pencewhy we moved him on because we needed to get rid of either him or Jack. Loneyended up being hind and now they're playing him in the correct position,doesn't take a genius to figure that out, but clearly saying Kilda is notfull of geniuses, so yeah. It was awesome to see hind upand running about, because I always liked him as a player good old from bebut yeah. Unfortunately, he just we just didn't think that he would be anygood of half back, but he clearly is so to have twenty five half back isunbelievable, given the amount of impact he has with every disposal. Youknow it's just about fifty. Fifty meters gain just with his legs and thenhe obviously disposed of the foodine or other fits that's awesome for him. Thereturn of send drape it as welll was...

...awesome for the bombers, obviouslygoing to be, or probably be there next rockmen for the years to come. So that is the review of round fourteen.Can you believe, or already fourteen round into the season it just? Ithonestly flies by round Omans, who did not see that long ago, at all, but anyway, so they've got to be atnine rands left until the finals, which is obviously the best time of thisseason, but yeah the end of the day. It's sort of sad to realize that we'realready forden rounds in and well, but at the moment, fifteen rounds in now so quick squardo. Well, not that any onereally in a caause you're all going to know the fine result that the moment isthirty, eight and twenty in the second quarter. So the cats have kicked a fewin this quarter to sort of call their way back to upon intended. But yeah. I was like bits just kick. Hiswell kicked one there so score it up date for absolutely no one, becauseeveryone's obviously knows the final score by now. So we are actually goingto touch on a little segment that I have come up with. I figure it's probably the best way todo it. This, given. No one else really has this obsession with the off seasonas much as I do it's one of my little one of white little things I I justlove, so I am going to skip the top aprediction because it just seems to be the same teams in a different orderevery single week. So I'm just going to take a week off that bit we'll get backto that when we have a beer other guests on the podcast. But what I'mgoing to do? I'm just going to spend a one or two minutes a bit on each teamjust talk about maybe what they need in terms of where they listed are and whatthey're aiming to achieve over the coming years, and I might just sort ofthrowing a few names here and now and who they could target some of them havebeen raised as of field targets. Some of them just haven't even beenmentioned before, so you know, for those listening, don't goand if I say one name that none's talked about, don't go and send it toyou. You know your known journalist andtelling to publish a story and tell him that I said this is going to happenbecause I'm just going to throw these names out there for the sake of variety,so we're going to start off with we're just going to go in Alphabetic quarter.We Start Off for the La Crows. So, as we know going into the seas on thecrows, we knew they were going to be sort of born the table and they havesurprised they are not bottom for believe it or not. If for Deighton inthe seas and they're not bottom, for they are actually sitting in twelveabove my saints who were, you know tee to be top for. So that's that's verynice. They are also about the likes of Colton and Collingwood. Who would havesurprised for you a so who would have surprised many in the off season, so they haveexceeded expectations. I lot. I saw a few comments in the preseason. There is a draft e called Jason Hawn, who is a South Australian blond,head midfield goal, kicking mid filter who is tated to be top five? Actually,to had to be top two at some point, so him and day costs have been talkedabout a lot for that number one position and lots of sort of Adlonfairs talking about. We need to take this season just so we can get hornacross. You can imagine what his nickname is so yeah they've, actually seedexpectations may mean they don't get that sort of top three or four picks atat the moment. I think they're actually sitting a pick seven so really for the Ad, like crows andmoment sister backing young talent in it's as simple as that so preferablysee at Australian base. So no one really wants to leave, but they can really just cover all intothe park with this one. So you know they've got obviously the medes of JawnButt Down Back and they've tried tested Nick Mary. At times you don't reallyknow where he he's at Daniel Tie is obviously nearing the end of his career.They moved on Kal harnage in the off season, so I told defender would benice, one name that is set at the strain and has popped up in recent earsas Brendan Cocks bit of a swing man. So we don't really know where his bestfoot is at yet, but the end of the day, a laid done alsoprobably need some support up forward for Fill Thorpe, and we don't reallyknow where fokines at or Elliott Himmeleh so cock bring them in. You cantry and test h at both ends of the grand, hopefully males one should do,because he is an immense talent. So that's just one name I'll, throw outthere Jacob Cardie as well. I'm probably going to talk about him a fewtimes this podcast or at least his segment. Sorry, given wes also what hecould do last season and he's absolutely killing it in the seconds.Just still can't get a game so he's one that I'd keep an an this off season,because it's clear that he's got the Capulinkick bags as a forward. He has also been trying tested as a sort of a halfback, so a bit of a verse of Tall Swing. Man there as well so he's another oneim going to throw it there, doling Stevens, as well as see out Australiandrafted a couple of years ago, just can't quite break in into that Swan'sline up a few of the young Bedfield's have kind of overtaken in the lights ofChad. Warner then was in that same draft arow, golden and stuff, as well.So Stevens, don't know how he's going toquite fit into that Swan's lip unless, unless he obviously list lifts his form,...

I obviously being see at Australian.You know could be a perfect play for the crows to target okay so on to thelions and they are in the premiership window, as we can obviously tell I've picked them to come at the top of thetable last week after you know talking about whether they'll even make finalsearlier in the season, but they are in the premiership window, and I think itis going on, obviously be for a few years, their elite players in the likeson McClurg and Joe Barry Harris Andrews e. You know looking elajee lines oneven old as well, so they're going to be in there for a while. So it's justreally about attracting a late talent, whether it's you know mid to late ties,could even get some experience in there as well similar to what they did withLok Hodge. So yeah, it's just going after apremiership. They Mayne, like I'm, going to throw this name in there againBrendan Cock, so they obviously have the lights of Harris.Andrews down back they've got dacianus on the sidelines at the moment. They'vegot micae WHO's in there. We don't really. You know, I think, he's havinga pretty okay season for them a bit of a Lucky Henderson type season, whereyou know you just completely coming out of nowhere as a bit of a mature agebody, but we don't really know where he's at that Fort Line as well mix dayhit would have done hers working nicely. So don't really need any for ties fromnow. I just hope that they can take the game to another level midfield fine. Soit's really just about solidifying that back line. I think so breting's anotherone. If you want to try and test him down there, that's all I say really, maybe just thelikes of, if ing a price, someone like a Harris and Patty who's, sort of up yeup and coming young, but obviously proved himself to be a pretty good luckdown defender. Just someone like that. Don't hold me to that he's seeAustralian boy, so maybe he's another on the crows, as we mentioned before,could tie, but yeah it's just really about attracting players who are aboutto enter their prime or in their prime now the lines or go for experience. So you know they can still roll withdrafting a couple of kids every draft, but I think yeah, the last sort ofseven or eight years they've got to heavy the drive the lines and they havehad obviously a fair few hits, but theywill also have had a few misses, but I think they hit they've had enough tobuild their list, as we've seen, I think in the year with Harrisites thatlook the other day they are, they had about six or seven blokes they took inthat draft, and I M Andrews is the only one left so just goes to show you canjust pick up. blokie be all Australian plays in the S, so maybe that's whatthey should roll with the lines. Maybe pick up a few mature ages here andthere they can have an immediate impact. My help with their premise windows, sothat's the lines done now. Colton is a big one. So, as we've seen over thelast sort of few years, they have had a lot of messes babe. Obviously now one were sayingwell is obviously going to be a future captain, but at the end of the day theyjust need a help, probably a little bit all over the park. So I think the midfield we saw on the weekend, then one of the Senebier Walsh was in there byhimself just occupied by the bar crips was absolutely gasped and their thirdmidfield was patty dear no further explanation needed, so I think they'redo need a bit of help in that mid field. Obviously, Mat Kennedy somehow isn'tgetting a run in there really and you can't keep throwing patty down the inthose cenobites so when they should probably go after Adam chere he'sprobably going to be the biggest talked about name release. It is so far thisoff season, obviously a free or boy, but he wasdrafted out of Vic Metro and, as we've seen, pres yes, Vic Metro is the typeof other type of players to feel a bit more at home. In Victorianow they're, usually urban brought up in urban area. Sorry, sothey are sort of city boys. You know all you know around the life.You know they are sort of very brought up in these areas around thecity, so it's y. Ah it was all it was always going to be. One of those namesthat I talked about to Willie come home after a few years, obviously signed anextension, but it is going to be a very interesting case with Adam Cherry he's.Obviously, very talented men for a very smooth mover picked up in as pick fivein that national draft, and he was one that I really wanted a saint a pick,seven or eight. Unfortunately, he didn't slip through, but he's an amenttalent. He is one that could help them out there. Obviously, roughly same agebracket is Sam Wash and a few of the others down there. So would be huge forthem or another one. They could go after his Josh Kelly, obviously goingto me another huge name that can be talked about this off season and he hasbeen in previous years. He is obviously a huge talent worthy of big numbers onthe contract does have those injury issues, but when he plays in the bidfield he's one of the best in the competition. We all know that so whenhe doesn't have Leon, carenas coach may well be a brown Le King tender. So I'mgoing to throw out a third mid fielder in here as well, one that has beenraised in the past few weeks. You've got TomMitchell hasn't mean link to Caldon, and we are talking about her curls andare going to have these money issues,...

...but at the end of the day you know you can't have like a gunsitting on son Indika and just you know doing what he's doing so, whether youship off someone to get in someone in that mid field. That really needs tohelp. I'm sure that's that issue is gonna beraised, but someone like a Tom, my children get in there maybe take theload off Patrick crips. Obviously, when all know about his body, but someonelike a mentrol again in there and give the hands out to Walsh and CRIPS whocan obviously get it forward, that would be huge for them and also maybesome help up forward as well, especially in the smaller with thesmaller guy. Sorry. So maybe a few blokes like a lucky shot to call a fromfree mantle they've got a few of those type of Med to small forwards in cold. Just need a bit of energy,obviously down forward because they are going to be saying good, bye to Eddiebets, as is the whole a FL world. It's going to be a sad day when that happens,but they are going a near replacement. They've seen the emergence of Matthewowes. I don't know if that's how you pronounce it, but we're going to Rilwith it. So we've seen the emeges this year he's obviously been a nice tigerfor im, but some er with a bit more zip, maybe putting a bit more pressure onthose defenders, would be very handy for them right so on to colling woods,look insist about drafts. Really. I think, with this list that they've gotthere all this go a lot of experienced guys down there, light of still sidebottom and Pandawa all them, but unfortunately they're not going tobe taken into the next primer ship and my something dramatic happens next year. So it's just about their next listen,which list is going to take them to that premiership, so they're, obviouslygoing to be getting midday cost at the end of this season, he's going to behuge for them, he'll be playing around one he's just absolutely dominating itin in. I think it's the oakly charges he'splaying for could be wrong there, but they have had a few people mention thathe's having a bigger season and real bigger sets in the Welsh like, and thisis scary, because every year we seem to be having an up and coming midfield erthat's having the bigger impact than the previous one. So these players aregetting scary good. So it's going to be awesome to see how he's going to go,but it's just a matter of whether they can get a few more players other thanjust neckcloth. Obviously, don't want to throw all greggs into one basketwith your draft days, which, unfortunately, collingwoods Mith lostmanagement in the past years hasn't been hasn't been great. We can to leave itat that, so they did have to ship off. ObviouslyTrue Lawrence Defense. I think Philips left more so just getting a bit more ofa role friendly, just a bit more of a friendly role. Really, I did out toship off those two and by the sounds of it. It's not over yet and they've stillmanaged to only end up with Pixel. Thirty and forty and fifty mit draft sohave they done that? I'm not quite sure it is quite a standing, but, as we saidbefore, you can pick up the likes of her Harris Andrews in the big is so atthe end of the day on used to about getting a few kids in a few mature ages.Well, we've seen boy mccree be drafting and he's. Actually, you know up therein the tackles and inside forward fifty this year, so he's always been huge forthem. Poyou e playing a massive part and that line up in the years to come, but yeah, it's yes it, whether they canmaybe trade up, get a couple of earlier picks and see what they can do. Butyeah they've obviously got a atle talented list of the moment, but we've seen that it's just it's just notgoing to tame to the next premission. Unfortunately, so it's a matter ofhoping that these the likes of you know these sort of middle age. Players, likeyou know, upbraided, for example, and just stay and get hopefully provide a nice bench,bark for the youngsters that are going to be coming in so onto essense. Theyare pretty well set off around the ground, so in the midfield they havebolsted yeah, bolster that with Jo Colwell in the off season, obviouslyinjured for most of this year, but he is an absolute talent and he'll beplaying in that mid field in the years to come, and the just the emergence ofDacy Paris really a has been absolutely awesome for them. Obviously, Solifidianjust a brown low contended this year so easy me in there in the years to come,Zack Merritt's just resign, which is huge news for the bombers like againing,going through there, we're just seeing what Jake Frit strake stringer can do,and Carl Langford well, I mean he's been the whipping boy better than thepast few years and he's been my whipping boy for about a week now, sowe've seen what he could do in the last few weeks before come. Incidentally, Ibrought him into my super coach team, so they've got- and you know just thelikes of throwing Devon Smith and stuff in there they're very fine in thatmidfield. Indeed, Damn back they've got the lifes of Ridley, who obviously hada stiller year last year, just getting more games into Zerka her. You knowthey're pretty well off down there. Maybe because could use one or two moregiven the likes. You Know Hurley's, obviously going into a time and Sun andthe likes of you know glease and an embrace and they sort of guys are. Theyonce had to hope for aren't really getting games now and their careerslooking more and more certain, but also...

...a forward target is probably what theyneed as well. So the like of Cooke is going to be nearing the end of hiscareer. They've, obviously got Harris and Jones down there who had a stell agame on the weekend against the Hawks, got the writing stone, nomination andthe well deserved, but may be a bit of experience down there. So I'll justgoing to throw his name in there again. Obviously, just contradicts what I saidabout experience with Jake Ricardi is one that could bolster that forwardline, so human Harrison jodes could provide a very nice for pan ship in theyears to come. They've also, obviously got paid a right in there, but whathappens with him? Don't really know who could provide a nice little trio attackwith a right of Ricardi and Jones right, obviously, switching with draper whenneeded, and then the lights of stringer and can keep Langton on the wing. Justkeep him around the ball. Please, the second, my sen coach team, but you know,has string and down. There is another target, hopefully get him to a tract. Abit of a lesser experience. Defender haven't played for him. Were thesebreaker games. They will be a late for the bombers, but yeah the moment as faras it goes in and bid fields pretty much set, and that's a very good placeto start when doing your Rebil. So on the fremantle. Just a bit of Dolly Waytown is, there is led there really so the moment their mid field is obviouslygood. They're getting games and to the lights of Saroni think he's attendedthe most centerensis for them. This season, which is huge for a play in histhird year, but maybe just one more that can roll through. They take a bitof a bit of pressure off his shoulders and taking may be go down forward whenhe needs to maybe the likes of a Jack Ross from Richmond all as we talkedabout not haven't talked about, but the FL world has quinton nifl, who justcan't get a game for your long. Somehow any other team I would be. But someonelike him who's, obviously a way boy that can roll through that Redfield andjust a bit of a bigger body and with a bit of pace as well. He'd be awesomefor them in there would love to see him getting some games just anywhere,really because there's no better player of there's a few better players. Ishould like to watch when they're fit the firing and quit Nichel he'sobviously not had many opportunities at it, but when he has blind he's, set theworld and fire and then a join Clark. As well comingoff, half back would be very handy for them. Obviously, another w wage, a longboard. I can't get a game for the cats and maybe they can swing a bit of apackage deal there for OO. I'd see what they can do there, but it's a bit of wa talent to continue this life re build. I know a few people sort of expectedFrio to be in in final contention this year. I wasn't as optimistic. I stillthought there were a few years off and looks like that. Estimation is sort ofyou know, come to fruit and doesn't look like they'll be making it thisyear. They have provided a nice push that are in eleventh. I think therewere ten. I think there were a tenth, maybe a week or two ago, but yeah just a bit of Wa talent. Can youto continue this nice rebuild and then Jolon as well? Look, they are Co. We got the best liston paper in the competitions along and they just really need to win apremiership with it. I mean this is really it's going to be the best chanceevery year from here on, and that they're likely who's just going to godown and down. As these players get older and older, it's going to hit themhard or long a few years. They really need to sort of get some reward forwhat they've done so made me just yeah. I mean at the moment along all.Obviously, all in me, focusing on this year, is to the next ten to twelveweeks and September and what they can do, but maybe in the off season, justget a few more kids and just so this sort of blow that's going to happen ina ears, isn't as dramatic as it's going to seem as Rachman as well is obviouslya big issue for them, not a big issue, but you know they never really seemedto have a set. One short dicing was one that was the cat are obos going to goafter, but he's just resigned and he he was today he's obviously a huge playerfor Fre, so very clearing you sticking there but yeah, just just a bit of richsupport for the cat is really what's needed. Apart from that not too much else, it's just about realwinning apprenticeship with the curtness that they've got and then GoldCoast. Well, it's come to the point where they've got enough talent,they've, actually sort of proven that point to day by saying that their firstpicks going to be on the table to get some experience into their team,preferably afford so they've sort of just answered the goal coasting thethis sec. The Goal Cross section of this segment with that one so, whetherthey ne another extra tall defender to help out Sam Colins and whoever hellsdown there, I don't think look, coches, isn't really a lock down. They've gotlights of Chris Birds and all that, but yeah, just just someone to help outdown there. You know they've only got a few games into the likes of cale.Graham and you know all these type of ice skinthing on the top of my head, but I'm yeah, just a bit of tall tall timbers,really needed the goal. Co sounds bit a support for banking to is needed, sojust some of the locks of Camel Callan Coleman, John Sorry would be huge forthem up forward to give Benny King a bit ofassistance, but also to swing into the ruck and to help you at Jared wits.Imagine a gin, Weeko two hundred and eight centi met or forward target wouldlove to see what would happen there,...

...but yeah they. They are fine for talent.Now it's they don't really. They can't really keep on going to the draft thesons because they are they're just going to kep on getting kids in thatare Goin to develop, and you know if they're going to have great careersdown the road, but you know some leave some stay ones that stay song develop,some don't and the ones that develop. Well, it's it's hard to get your careerto exactly where it needs to be to be in a late player. If you don't haveexperience around you, because you know it's hard to get leadership because youcan only get so much leadership from your coaching coaches at the end of theday, me is just a cricketer. I've found that the most sort of coaching mentor I get is actually whenI'm playing the game rather than you know, sitting down being told what todo so. At the end of the day, I think yeah, they just stated bringing someexperience from other clubs, whether that's the likes of you, know MitchWallace, who just can't get again the dogs, but, as obviously I link theirvice captain, would be huge to them or a Sevras from the saints bit of help inthat midfield as well, not that they probably need it, but more so, for thatexperience, just sort of men, helping men, touring the likes of Maddie railand no, where Anson and all that obviously took billy was born and bredand Gold Coast now not born sorry, but you know drafted and obviously progress his career, a GoldCoast and so he's never really had any sort of strong mentals part. Fromprobably Gary Able that is played with so just a like to said, Ross could comein and take him a few things about what to do. Probably not had a kick, becauseI don't know. I don't know how I said: Bross continues to at least be highlighted as a very, verygood player, given how horrendous his boy uses by foot but yeah just to be ofexperienced for goal coast. Really they can't keep resorting to the draftbecause it's it's just not really getting them anywhere. I know it takestime for these plays to develop and these players are still developing, butthey now have enough. They have their foundation of youngsters to take him tothat next level. They in a bit of experience and then hopefully going tostop winning these games, especially you know outside of Metrico, where theydo tend to struggle, but enough on names in the on to Glus,it's more s to be a trying to keep their players. They've got a verystrong list on pay for the giants and a few of their kids that they areblooding this year or not blame or just getting more games into a coming oncoming on really well, specifically in the defense, the likes of Connor andJack Buckley. Lucky Ash Isaac coming these guys are all becoming regulars inthe team, hearts o becoming really promising for them. Obviously, no noon's quest o trade, yet coussins for the giant so far this season, but yeah,it's just to be a keeping their players, kid just Kelly, it's Goin to be huge for them, and justmaybe it's another extra tall defender. Obviously we fill Davis nearing the endof his career Sam, Taylor's obvious, been a huge underrated player for themin his career so far, but has been injured for a lot of this year hasexposed them a little bit. They have had to use, obviously the kids atthey're bringing up you know the Jack Buckles and the islands, but just someof a bit more experienced. Maybe someone like a sane cordy. I know.Obviously, you know just make it just price and one way from a team's best,twenty two like as an so just to give a bit more experience down there.Obviously, when he, when Fill Davis, leaves and they're just getting a fewergames into the likes of iron and Jack Buckelew. What not? So that would behuge for the giants but yeah just more about keeping these plays and justsolidifying this team, because I don't want to ride off the giants, I'm notgoing to or fuse to with the current less that they've got it's ridiculous.How much telt they've got on that list and the fact that they're sitting inwell not they were seeing a lot lower than that earlier in the year, and youknow everyone was saying Leon camerons gone, but they have risen right, thatup and just proving everyone that they still have the talent and they arestill going to be a top eight chance next year. In fact, I've probably gotthem in my predictions for next year. Don't know who the hell! I would takeit that, and probably no one at this pointbut yeah at the moment. Look Gedos they've got all the tall in the world.I've got abundance of top ten top twenty dry picks so and they've justgotten a few more in in the light of Tanaro them, so at the end of the day,definitely not riding them off. It's just about keeping their players andjust going a bit more culture yeah. So in a sense G, no verse is a little bitirrelevant in this section about what they need in the off season. Yeah, allthey need is just a bit of cohesion. Just to you know, go away and get someteam building exercises done. Just you know, build a bit of life, but at heart, just hopefully keep the list intact soon to Hawthorn, if you, alas, to class and turn this off, because I'm going totalk about well, I'm going to mention one, whetheryou don't want to hear kids and just like that, the triple yeah the police departmentjust enter my house to come and arrest me yeah. So it is just to be a getting thekids in really to go just because they name more. Youknow they can't obviously go on to their next premiership list, with theexperienced guys that they'Vee got...

...obviously like of Brest and all theiracomin toil of their careers they're not going to be in their next tightentheir next premiership window slices. You Know Chad, win guds and all thisand that bit confused by these sort of trade in the obviously we're going on abit of a downward spell since that sort of dynasty and yeah to get these guysin you know, O were as well here. All searching for success obviously hasn'tgone that way, and because of that, I don't hate the ideaof training out a Tom Mitchell for a top drappie. Maybe something like thatfor the Hawks may just getting a few kids in that haven't really gotten agame at other clubs, but we're pretty highly tates juniors few poor at ladboys, dealer Williams, who actually is making his debut this week for port abletso good luck to him, but it was very highly tided. As a junior wasended up being drafted, I think of the dirties and I'm not mistaken, but youknow coming to a drive. You was actually talking about the top ten orsomeone like him can maybe bring out the best of his ability. Also a SamHayes was, you know I was in fan and drafts on the top ten very stronglylinked to Collingwood in his draft year ends up going in the s given that raid.You know everyone sort of realize that you don't really need to pick atrockmettlers top five top six pick, so you sliding all the way to pick. Youknow pick in the forties and continues to be the unluckiest bad in the Afeli,always in the in the mix section of Portala he's always I swear. Half theweek is always predicted to come into the line up, never even hear about himat six twenty on a Thursday night when the teams are released but fingerscross, he gets his chance soon, but you know maybe it's at another club like ahawthorn where they just need to bring in kids through the draft, but also from other clubs where they maybehaven't, had a chance to get to reach their full potential. Yet or U T evenget an opportunity, so that would be very solid for them.Please don't report this episode. Just for you know saying the word kids,because that is what harborne need and, yes, sorry, Isclo an you can tune backin now so on to Melbourne. What they probably need is just a look. I meanthey've, been this surprise pack of of the competition this year, they'repretty well set in in terms of Bidford. Obviously the emerged of James Yes, soJimmy Jordan has been huge for them, so he's really just just removed that part of whatMelbourne moved Ed this this off season, obviously don't needanymore midfield is their defense is obviously being proven to be one of thehardest to crack, especially with the lights of May and leave down. ThereHarrison Patty also coming on very nicely who you know definitely didn'tfloat him as a trade, Igor Alad and Brigman earlier, but yeah just so. Maybe just a littlepartnership with cose pick it up forward is what they could do with justthese. Obviously, a one man Mascaro fleet down there, tiles barger iscoming on nicely, but tends to play a bit more of the grand. If I'm nomistake and so well, I may imagine the lack of Cozy Pickanin Isaac Rankin inthe same forward line that would just I would be so close to coming a Melbunsupport, not that I ever will ditch my own team, but would be so close to justwatching every single week. If you had a full line of cozy picking and eyes atrank and in the tall forward line. It's a been it's a it's a bit Abul Weird onewith Been Brown and Sam wait a minute. Neither of them are in their best.Twenty two: both of them are fit. They are top the ladder Melbourne. Soimagine if you said that at the start of the year, but they're, obviously coming on very nice,with Bailey Fritch, obviously probably having a career best year to Mac DonaldDown, there is obviously being very serviceable for them and then the likesof you know when Jackson and Gorn both interchange down there obviously givethem a goal to every game which is very handy for them. But yeah t be of aninteresting one where the careers are San, Wedeman and Ben Brown, a heading,especially with pen Brown, who just moved to the days this year is fit, butcan't get a game, so maybe just a bit of a bit of a partnership down there withCaspian Ere's. Another electrifying small forward yeah, I know, is atobviously see AU, Australian boy and his name is probably going to come up in the years to come. Give forthat exact reason, but imagine a for line of cosy picking lies at rank andthat would be immense, but obviously, on to North Melbourne once again just getting a bunch of kidsin draft days just rebuilding this team, becausewhilst they are the you know many Talem to be the worst team, the competitionins ever seen this season. They are currently sitting on six points withthe percentage of sixty one. So obviously it's not really a season thatkangaroo fans are going to want to remember, but it hasn't obviously beendisastrous. They've had a few surprises. The life of neat liking is justcontinuing to come on as a asolar, but he probably does need a pin of supportdown there. So maybe I'm song to mention this name again. Jake Ricardiis one that they're probably going to go after. I think they have heard thisone actually floating around the realms of twitter, but is definitely one thatcould fit in well to fall a nice partnership in the years to come. A Nilike in Jaraca that flows nice up the time could definitely see thathappening. They obviously have been linked to Jack billings as well he'svery, very close friend of Luke...

McDonald. So whether that happens- andI I don't know in terms of the same killed a point of view- It depends whatpeople would get us, but with the all the kids coming in O r Jack billingswould be nice to sort of give them a bit of mentor ship. Obviously he's nota veteran, but someone's been there in the competition now for about eightyears was obviously a pick three so knows how it it all goes as a top drafte. In the A fl would be very handy, for them just continue to continue theirrebuild once again. Someone like a Sam Hayesfrom Port Adelaide would be handy, given not sure where their rocks rat inthe camp one time. Obviously Goldie is going to be entering the twitter career.They just drifted Jacob Edwards. Now the mid season draft another local boymay be a Punishin of human. Sam, hey is in the future. You never know so just a few kids there to bring in NorthBell, but it's really that simple, so yeah on to Port Adelaide they've got a very good time. Themoment I've got a very nice balance of youngsters and veterans in there, sojust maybe a little just to give a bit of support. I am I field. Given thelight of you know, Bo and wines are going to be entering more so bok, youknow. Even the man's you know is his not unfamiliar man in the Squadof Thirties of the world. Now, so just a bit of support in thatmidfield may be obviously the lights of will and juris coming on very nicely.But you know maybe it's another high body mid field and maybe not so muchlike an only wines, maybe someone that can use the ball nice off the boat. Iknow only wines got about a hundred and fifty fanity, but only a hundred supercoach on the weekends were very tintorea performance from him. Some ofthat can use it nicely, there's also a hard body in there. You know someonelike you know, light to Jack Ram Jack Rosson. The Tigers, maybe not not notsaying the elite kicks, but just you know a bit of pace in there is a bit oftoughness just so that when both does depart they do haveplays to just rotate straight into them. They obviously do the likes, and youknow butters and all these guys, but you know obviously not tough toughbodies and they do have a few of them. You know the lacks of rocklet. Justcan't get a game spell. Pep rocket does have just been in every injury underthe sun the moment. But you know power, pepper, don't really know where he's athis career at the moment, but yeah just something to rotate through there whenthose guys get a bit tired, you know, broke, usually misses a few games nowstill a bit of son. It's just to rest him every now and then, but I think oneof the main told two of the main tiles den we going after the next few yearsof Lohot and rank in obviously see out Australian boys. I think they went onrecord to say that we're going to be coming for them in a few years and theygot a draft which was a very sma very interesting play while them, whethereven if they could just land one they'd, be awesome for them. Just to have alook. Coaches running of half back or ranking in that forward line wouldactually obviously be huge, obviously ported rotated with a few of theirsmall forwards this year and previous years. FANTASIO can only get the partonce in a blue moon, and you know boy horse, cop wood, Cock and obviously newthe competition so he's coming on all right, but youknow, just you know, see carts Meta spot really, so just the light of thoseguys, Robbin Gray's, obviously entering the end of his career as well. Thosetwo would be handed they're probably got those two names at the top of theirwhite boards in their recruiting department. So no real news breakingstories there, but too that they're definitely going to be targeting it'd,be very interesting to see if they could learn. One may even both Richmond. I talked about this today.Actually I drove all the way back home from warder today with my girlfriendwho's, a richmond supporter so had a and a long time to talk about varioustopics. One of them was Richmond and I was asking you what she reckons. Ishould talk about in this second for them, and we came to the conclusionthat would their list of the moment they've obviously had their dynastythey've. You know obviously been one of the best sides: the competitions everseen, the last of four five seasons, so whether they don't win anotherprematoor do at the end of the day, their list as being a successful. Lastfor years it's been huge. You know. A lot of those players have won threepremierships now, so it's really been just a period of time to remember forTiger's fans, so whether they're obviously going tobe pushing for again this year, probably next year as well in Rawats,probably last year. So it's just the lacks of you know that this year hasbeen very tough them. They've always had a lot of injuries that are to playthat midfield par from that, though, you know, I both end of the ground itbeing pretty well off. So maybe just a one or two more mid field is to comeinto that team. Just you don't have the life. I rely on Cole Lights of Colliedarkens. To have you know a ten fifteen plus sinebant es. You know I like hisfirst season, not that I what at the moment, anywaysdisposal use, isn't fantastic, but they do obviously have the lights of theseboys in the wings. You know the Jack Roses and Jack Grain Jack Raynes,obviously very Haney playing in their best twenty two, but just the likes ofyou know again. They've got a few kids that they've, tried and tested. You know like will martand all thatthey're. You know the've having come on...

...as well as maybe they could have itanother club, so maybe just a bit more of a tried and know noting to performwell at a valable type of midfield, or some of them won't probably cost himtoo much, maybe like a Sam Pell, pepper, for example, to come in, provide a bitof ferocity in there he's very much. The type of player would probably suitRichmond, just more sort of get the ball down to that forward line. Youknow, use a pace. Is Your strength? There's not so much about skill and pinpoint hitting targets, get the ball for that's exactly how Briton play so maybesomeone like him would be absolutely perfect for them, but also try and getkids in, because when these plays into the twit of their careers, they are going to be a bit worse offjust so they are going to be they're only going to be hit pretty hard,because you know all these players are roughly same age bracket. So when theyall you know like the cotchins and the railroads, and all these guys and a fewyears sort of hit the end of their careers. They are going to be left ofthe few holes in the list. So maybe just you know, bringing someone like aSan Pale pepper, just just show this sort on for midfield disaster doesn'thappen again or if it does, they've got a few more cogs in the world. I can usebut yeah just the part O that suspect getting kids and really to stand theflow of the disast disaster. Sorry, just the the blow that's going toprobably occur in the next few years, but apart from that yeah, obviouslyyou're sprisin is a rich and supporter. I'm very envious of you guys, but one play or a couple of pies that havebeen linked to Richmond, actually is Adam Charon Toll Mitchell, not sure ofeither than really fit demographic. There obviously Chere is has beentalked about recently, but you'll be entering his prime in a couple of years,but that's probably just in Timpan Richmond might be entering their stintin the bottom ten. So I don't know how long little be, whether I am do or not odds are they will proner a few yearsto sort of do a little tiny, many mini rebuild but yeah, whether you bringingan an char, I'm not too sure will obviously be a very good player forthem. If you did, but you know, wouldn't come in and like it wouldn'tbe like a talking point every week or I wouldn't be in the end of the tollingpoints for Richmond, given the life I I've got, the dusties of the world andthey've got all these star players. I have a feeling, Chara, not sure we'd beattending. Every center bars might just be another sort of play off. Half back.Maybe you know a batch Er holy calls. A quit to the end of the season couldsort of play a path back for bid but yeah. I just have a feeling chair andmight be better off going to a team like Calton, where he really can playhis role, move into that full time, midfield role and solidify himself asone of the smooth movies of the competition in those mid fielders andas a midfield, sorry and then Tom Mitchell, not sure it fits the wayRichmond play is a high possession bid fielder. So a high position, low medesgame in Filder S, that's obviously exactly him.Richmond do tend to lose. The disposal counts most weeks, just or at least theplayers doing a mass high numbers, given the fact that it's all just getthe ball forward, a use, their intense ferocity and pressure to do that so notsure how to much would fit in with that, I'm not sure if the either those tradetargets would be suitable for Richmond and the demographic, but will be a veryinteresting to see who they go after and then on to my sane killed a line up. I obviously blabber on about mevery week, so I'll definitely try and keep this section short. I think thenumber one thing that might look, I I'm not going to try and I talked about alist a few weeks ago. It's a disaster. I don't think this list if it continuesgoing, why it does and our players don't develop into these a a plus gradeplayers, which is what we were kind of relying on. I don't think it's gettinga to another premiership lying is worse than we all think. I think it's goingto be another sort of long drawn out confused rebuild, given the fact thatwe've got all these guys and we drafted. You know some of them is or a top tenpicts, but then it's not delivering not going to that extra level. So number one thing: I think we need itour biggest weapon. Sorry saying Kilta is ability to use Ron Marshal Pattywriter as our sort of rock forward Combo were probably they probably are.This is not a cooper gretch moment that they probably are the best rock fallCombo when fit in the competition and given road is obviously very old. Troythis or next year will be his last just someone to replace him. So martialis in that sort of ruck forward. Combo Marshall is the guy that plays sort ofsixty percent for, and forty percent rack, where as right as the opositehe'll pay the bit more of the Ruck, so just a bit of a rough man that canswing forward as portly. What we need. That's why I really liked the he hadn'tbeen even talked about were saying, kill I like of maybe a shorn dice. Hewould have been perfect, but obviously he's just resigned, one that I wouldlove to bring in as a matthew, Flin, we've obviously seen how could he canbe in the rock at gs when mop wasn't playing in starter, especially againstus? You know had a hundred and forty super coach game in his debut. I thinkit was absolutely phenomenal, but since mated coming he's been a bit more rockand forward and he's been a very good time for them up for and he's got somevery good hands on him and can keep the...

...footes sometimes sideways, but he would be one that I would betargeting for the saints because he's ill. Obviously he's probably going tobe that he's there aiming to be the number one right for the next few years.Given month its obviously you know, we don't know how long he's got left, butcovies already retired once but we'll see what happens there, but yeah. If Ihad the chance says I've been trying to go after Matthew Fling just so that wecan continue to have this ruck forward combination because look it's the onlyweapon. We've really got at the moment, so may as well try and replace withwhat we can when one of them goes down and then just the likes and maybe alook. I raised this question so much clear on trade radio I think lastseason about. We need, like a spirit, moving men for what we've got likes ofZack Jones and Jack Steele and Brag. Well, you just got. We hadn't got Bradcrash at that point, but we were going to but said Ross and all this guys thatjust can't keep forty. So we need a smooth mover in there. Some with a bitof composure. I raised a question of Josh Kelly, who had been linked to foryears and years and years he said now is probably cont. Come from an guy likea huns o'clock. I tend to to agree, but like were saying, we haven't reallyseen this guy sort of come on, so I'm just going to throw now out there againJosh Kelly. Obviously we don't. The salary cap is getting to the pointwhere it is sides to fill up a bee. It doesn't help you've got Dan Hanebeen. Alot of money is big. Bucks were and at the stite of his contract, which Idon't think many people understand he's not on as much now but he's still in afair bit of coin. So to free up something like him at the end of theseason. Maybe like a said of Ross as well, who just look to me host, I don'tN he's not on being our best he's not going to be on premiership twenty two.If we have a flipping win, one, maybe moving on a few of these boys in freeme of cash, some one is a little bit younger bit more of a different manfield. Er To what we've got at the moment, some like a Josh Kelly playingfull time mid, would be perfect, but yeah, just son, like a Bat Flin, give abit of support to Mexikin down there look the back line, I don't even know,what's going on there, like Dooglas comeing, very nicely put apart fromthat, don't really know. What's going on, it's different every way, call Wiki,sorry as another. One, that's been very solid for us, but you know, Colfieldwas very good. Last season looks just lost this year been long. I can't don'tknow how he even plays to fit. Don't even even know how he sets foot on thepark, then a long lettelier, probably the most important part of the ground,but yeah the end of the day. I'd love to see us go off. The matlin that'd beawesome to just to get just to continue this too Prong to rock forward attack,and it's obviously our biggest attack. The bier sort of weapon at the momentwould be huge if we could get him across and down to Saint Yite ontoSydney just about getting more kids in they've, also brought in a few guyshave been really good. They've got a very good success rate, this ones withdrafting players and turning them into Sol the best twenty two players, theobay brought in erol, Galles and Braden Campbell. This season, Chadborn, hascome on as well and just want mis appears like to many would probablythink he was drafted last season, which you know it was the year before,with dill and Stevens. Who is one that hasn't really come on that we talkedabout that could be floated as a potential. Adelaide go home boy, butyeah. It's just more back. Getting the kids in they're, obviously going inthey're in a very nice spot, the ones we are on the top hey top there thereat six action at the moment. So if they want to continue this sort of push to play finals, just a fewmore guys that going to be answering their prime, theyreally want to make a strong push. But yeah part from that about getting kidsin who are very talented, just to may be just make a bit of a just sort of set the foundation for theone, the next one ten to fifteen years. So that's probably a stretch, maybesort o ten years to really be a very strong team of the competition. Muchlike your long, I've done the last one ten fifteen years you know they barelyhave. Him is finals, so just yeah a few more kids like that, and just some guysthat are sort of a toing, their prime. So they can push those files made a bitof experience in there as well. They've obviously got the lacks of Josh Kennedyand Luke Parker in that mid field, but maybe the either end of the groundbuddy. I don't know how long he's got left but yeah some one to support lineMcDonald, but as well as that, defense, someone support Tomoca. So maybe just you know, the likes ofJake Ricardi is to support log. McDonald, obviously is an experience,but would be handy in the future. You know at this point in time seems likehe's going to every single club Chap Ricardi. You know maybe a bran cots aswell as of some guy. I just mentioned countless time to this episode alreadyas well, but yeah swans can really do anything in thisoff season, whatever they do, it's going to benefit their list, so it's anice position to be in for them the eagles. Now our second last team, we'regoing to be talking about their list is aging. We all know that, and it's justthe matter of how they approach it. They can go down the point of getting alot of kids in rebuilding this list. That doesn'tobviously doesn't need a rebel yet they're in the top. Ah, but all these guys, a sort of nearing theslight ends of their careers or at least the time of their career, werethey going to start to maybe backtrack a little bit, so maybe, whereas theywant to get more kids in just to sort of make sure that they don't sort ofhit a brick wall in a few years, when these players start to go intoretirement or whether they just bring in a few more guys to continue theirpremise window. What they do, I don't...

...know they cancel to go either way aboutit, a bit like the ones. What they could probably focus on wasbringing across t w a boy at your long, the canking INS, obviously a couplethere in John Clark and Quinton Nichel. They be very handy for them. Obviously,we've seen what's happened with West crost midfield this year, Elliot Yo and Luke. She we are prettyinjury prone, so getting a quitting arkling would be quite handy for him,and a Jorn Clark of Hath back would be handed to with Shannon hern, obviouslynearing the end of his career. He looks about a hundred, but still obviouslygetting games, but yea at the end of the day, he's not going to be out thereforever. So those two boys are proane Handy for the Eagles outfit at up to stadium.Much like for Frio so will be an interesting ball at the end of theseason given by teams probably going to go after them hard. So will beinteresting to see whether we know want to end up somewhere in one and over theother place or both go to one or not either it's gonna be awesome to saywhat happens there and Foaly on to the dog. So look they've been one of the surprisepackages here, not so much as Melbourne, but they obviously have been huge sericsicken on the ladder best bed filled in the COMP. The emergence of bruise upforward, but in partnership with Aron Norton, has been huge when also intiming. This cross down there is just a whole nother level. Maybe can juststrengthen this defense a little bit. Maybe a couple lock down defenders,absolutely no idea who that would be maybe the lights of been patent fromthe Saints Who's, obviously is he's a underrated lock down defender thatcan't really use the foody. You know someone like a bread in Mana,not saying he's going to go there, but you know you never know if he wants toseek a premiership perfect fit for the dogs, giving pies, don't evly know where they'regoing to be going if they do enter premise, when now in his career, it'llprobably be near to the end of her. So if he wants to seek one bit earlier,never no, maybe the dogs that could be a shot mood that happens brad an man onor the dogs but yeah part in that. Don't really need too much attention totheir list of dogs, just about making sure Morra doesn't leave, because thatwould that would make a few draft as nervous as they as they get drafted tothe dogs. Because is no matter how good you I can be Jon the chopping blockafter a year to but yeah. Apart from that, the dogs don't really needanything, it's just very similar to the cats worrying about September and theyears to come. It's very handy. That list is quite young, so this sort ofstrong peered form is going to be lasting a while. So the big question iswhether they can just continue this, and this isn't just the one seasonthing: Don't think it is. Obviously they are very, very talentedand it was a bit silly having lit light of Bonduel and Dun cle and all thatrunning through the midfield, and they were only sort of just on the fringesof the eight last couple of seasons. So it's very good to see them up the topof the table there. So maybe yeah just a sort of small lockton defender. WhenI say small, you know it's just a lot down the fen. I would help them downdown back, not so much a Kadesia player, but yeah. That concludes that segment.I got on a lot longer than I thought it Waler already over the our mark. Sosorry, he Mishi you're Goin to be listening and editing this we're goingto be von to the super coach segment. Now now I've been talking the last fewweeks. I've been planning for this inevitable round. Fourteen by that justoccurred, everyone was stuffed everyone had had. You know between ten and sortof sixteen players. I, on the other hand, you know there was a bit of luckas well. I didn't have shy, Boltin or Jane, or I didn't those two guys.Everyone saw the scene to have or a calmer mills I shot up in the ranks. I finished withone nine three two, which could have been a lot better. Now my trade Ibrought in jared lions, I brought in Caleb Daniel. We yeah it's not a very common bringingso trade in, but I needed to bring in two guys. Apart from lights, I need tobring two guys are about sort of four seventy each. So I brought in this wasI made this call right up until the first Panser, the Jalon and Baldos Gand.I went with call Daniel over Jack Scrim shore. It was down to both of those twokabobs just has a bit of a higher ceiling, so I went with him to finishoff my defense and I had to swing led into the midfield, and I want to callflipping. lengthed has my other picker. He just regretted it. The second I didit should have got nick kind or toby grain. That would have made myscore. You know a one, ninety, so one D, nine, ninety or even two thousand- thatwould have been phenomenal in this by Wak I for the round. It's very veryannoying, because I came three hundred third for the round, but that is factoring in all of the play.All of the look, let's call them dickets. That may ran for ten specificteam from the start of the season. So basically, if you're not familiar withthat, what they do is you know just make. They'll have their own separateteam that they obviously do every week in round one, but they also have aseparate account that they focus on one specific week in a boy as one of thevice specific weeks. So they'll only have premium players from the teamsthat are playing so they just dominate...

...the round because, instead ofstruggling to fill a team spots and having a few rookies on field, theyhave a ten premiums that are all playing. So the lier check the live ranks at theend of the final game, and I was about sixty seventy er, so it was all right I would have been about actually no hayon. I think I was actually actually. I can't me, I think so. Ithink it was about six ear. Seventy Eh and I would have been top ten if I hadgone for being hid or toby grant. I didn't obviously in hindsight worstmove of ever done. Well, second, worse, move. I've done this season behindbringing Isaka and of the day, obviously went very well still camethroughout on a third shot up in the ranks from what I kind of remember whatfrom, but I shot two thousand three hundred and third ane spots all way upto one thousand two hundred and forty nine. So, whilst everyone sort of wentdown, I shot up and I'm near within the topone thousand two hundred and fifty, so I'm actually ten spots ahead of pill,Chans, obviously, and one of the boys on this potty he's a'BC'd four points more than him. I think so.It's literal just one tackle so to me a nice little battle between him and I amnot sure if Hamish is going to come, close, give and he's, I think, badly tostay on top three thirty K, but yeah. It's the few sort ofhighlights from the weekend from my players. Jadin a loop hold him as soonas I brought him in very happy with his one hundred and forty one. I went withthat. Didn't go bon to Pally, which Oro only cost me sort of two points. Lucky wit field, very nice to see himget a one, twenty, a d we're all kind of waiting for it, the ones thatbrought him in Daniel very nice to her triple figures. John Riddy, as well,was back with a hundred and eleven was taking kick outs, which was verypromising Tom Stuart. Somehow I only got a hundred and twenty Tom Mitchell,another mid field, a that, probably many people brought in during the byesgiving he had the round twelve. I got a hundred and four name, which was veryhandy. A couple of rookies underforest a little bit giant new commonly got totwenty four, it's a bit unfortunate. But anyway youknow it as long as he just sort of stays in the bench. Maybe gets gameshere and there it's not really that to make cash gout just about playing asbeing there. If we need him, you know, Hollands a will combine for atwo hundred and thirty four happens about every week now, which is veryhandy for the guys that have them, including myself. So this week I wasn'tdoing trades up until near when we jar an IMP, I'm going to wait untiltomorrow, but it sounds like he's Goin to be out for the rest of the season.So it's a very tricky spot, because I've only got ten K in the bank andthere's just no one. I want around the four hundred and seven T K mark is aforward. So, apart from like a TIM member or a Jake Stringer who were bothJudais like fifty k but Dennis a matter of probably sideways trading them again,once that happens, that's just two trades there. So you may as well usethe two trades stop grading, so I might actually bring a new kind this week. SoI have him, so I don't regret it. So I don't sit so I don't miss out anotherone. Thirty which will just kill me, give it. I was about to bring him in so I'm probably on it going to be endup doing that at the moment projected two years and four hundred and eightyeight, which is probably what Armand's projected at this point of the season,always end up being about to one who less than that, so don't get. Yourhopes of her projected is like two thousand six hundred but yeah. That's Goin to be my supercoach route, there's not too much now as we get into the home strictor o theseason, it's just more about making sure that your team's full premo andthat, if you have any else, you have bench cover- or you have trades justgot to remember- to say those trades for finals, because you'll be surprisedat how many times you really wish you would save trains foring the year, I'm not going to bother going throughthe team. I was going to go through the team match ups for this week, but we'realready an hour and eight minutes in sorry. I'm just going to sort of listthem off as I go through the white predictions for this week. So Brisbane Jo long happening right now,it's highway through the third quarter. Lines are up by six goals, so Iactually tipped a long very smart move from me. So I will see what happens.There is very good to see the lines hopefully get. Another win here lookslike there's been in as well. A few spot flies here and there I think it'sprobably based around the market kind of locky meal situation, which is it's good for the game to see the bestplayers go up against the best tarians but anyway, so we've got Richmond SangKilledar tomorrow, like God, help us all at a San kill as a borders, Samsonwhom making his debut, which is very interesting given they haven't, actually droppedColor Common Jones. So I think it's going to be the Tigers. There is goingto be too good for them. They have hit O, not not hit sorry, but this seasonhas been as strong as previous seasons, but at the end of the day, this is justthe typical Richmond. You know they drop a few games in the middle of theseason. People sit the out, and then they fire in September what better teams to come up againstthe to get to regan bit of Form An say kildare? We do have memory marshal andRoss coming back, but the end of the I think this is just going to be arichmond walk in the park. It is at the g. You know I predicted is to be sixplus goals, probably generous to Saint...

Kilda, then on to Colin it free mantl Saturday,at one and forty five, the pies re game, Brody Grandy, I'm going to beinteresting game of Marvel, not the g. The dockers also get FIFA or a few bigguns back for this. One very tight contest, probably going togo with the pies, obviously hit a little bit of form the last few weeks.They are missing g going to be missing to Goe, but the end of the day. Youknow you're bringing grandy and Adams take it to Galy. You know you, probablyyou know, you're, not really worse, soft, probably better off there that obviously I'm missing dartingwarnow as well. So when you factor him in you know, we'll see what happens,but you know it's probably. The net result is probably even so tome very interesting game that one frio aren't the strongest performance atMarvel. We obviously saw there were obviously lost heavily to Calton earlyin the season, which doesn't usually happen too much yeah. I want to be got on the pies andthis one and they found a little bit of form. Light of you know, probably cockWHO's. Just come in, and Darsana Ra orcan were going to kick about four orfive together and all right, and that'sgoing to be enough to give them a winning margin, then, on to NorthBallan Gold Coast blockbuster gain this one one hundred and forty five on aSaturday. This is a Blanston. This is honestly, I flip the coin really asdepends which goal cort shows up. If it's a talented one of the talents atlist, they've got they're going to be winning by the end of the day. I thinkNorth elbourn get to get the chocolates here, they're going to enter the doublepoints in terms of you know playing points, I guess so. Idouble figures in terms of playing points with, because they're currently on sixneed four through to get to ten, so I think they're going to get the forehere, I'm just the one inclusion for them with will fills Tom Powers in a MSis first game, unfortunately, but he's a very good site to his career. I thinkNorth Bill on the a n to get the again to get the Chopin here, and itwill be very interesting to see what happens. It's Goin be Interestin to seewhich game ever one watches whether they watch the close, but I don't know what way to describe it,not infamous, but you know funny game to watching worth Belan Gold Coast orwhether they go for the Morgenrote. I'm going to be gone for North, in that onethou in terms of tipping will be very interesting to see what happens, though,port abled I ne is the next one type of game at Cindy could upset, but I thinkPort Adelaide Oval might just have them covered. They do gain Aral Golden Back,who you know, people that probably doesn't seem like a mass conclusion.He's actually leading for average goal sits in the competition in his firstyear, so that's huge for them. Dyli Williams baking his debut for PoorAdelaide. So that's huge for him as well, but I think port they're going touse the Alla crats their advantage here. I think they're going to get thechocolates, but you never know what the swans I've had a very promising yearsitting in six, and it is the type of game where they do upset. Buddy frankin could come out and just put on absolute show. So you never know willbe a very good match. I'll think Saturday, night balmers day's hugematch up this one, especially if jake stringer cancontinue how he played on the week and I'm sure he's going to be getting a bigrun of the guts there. But yes, just another huge clash at theG. I think it's going to be closer. I do think the days really had the cab Ievery time I talk negatively about the des. I feel a bit silly given how wellthey're going but last time I did it paid off, because I said that the crowsmight upset them and they did so. I think this one's going to be close. Idon't think the des have the ability blow out sin because I think esenenthere are a very sort of high scoring you know so: they're attacking team andall the conservative team. So I think Asen that I'm really going to testMelton's defense here. So it's gonna be a very interesting match up on Saturdaynight, whether I see the game remained to be in question, given I'm going tobe having a couple of drinks that night, let's keep it at that. So we'll seewhat happens there, but I'm very intrigued to see what happens. T us didnot make sense. Don't don't pay attention to that, be speaking for anhour and ten minutes now, so the words are starting to come out and otherlanguages. We now live on Sunday, Gwas Hawthorndemigration, his debut the man that looks about twenty five to thirty he'sonly the eighteen gon be playing down back. Unfortunately, Gorman P foreveryone, sup coach is out, may be a season ending injury, this one'sinitially one at the MC G, actually gaws Hawthorn. It's a tough one to takeme out of it at the G D. US aren't obviously the best travelers,especially when it comes to Melbourne, but obviously Awthorne aren't one ofthe biggest teams of the competition and yeah it's it's. Whether generous isgoing to be a test of them, whether they can travel or not. I know many people are just going tothink Junos, talented with tip them, but for one on the type of team thatwill turn it up in a match where they know they can, when clocks is obviouslythe best coach in competition and he knows how to beat every single team-and I think it's going to put those skills on display on the on Sunday atone ten, because I think parks and really going to give the giants and runtheir money. But I do think the gons are goingto get the chocolates. I thinkit will be a close one down to the last...

...quarter, Goin to wait and see that it'sgoing to be huge that one, I think I think many people probably lookinglooking over it. I think I'll be a very close contest. However, on Sopor the match of the day,I will be west coast and the dogs a optics that one is going to be huge andthat one is almost a flip of the corner as well. We know how strong the eaglesare at Optus, but the dogs are obviously second a lad out one of themost infunt teams in the competition, but the eagles are regain Tim Kelly,Luke, see Brad Sheppard, McGovern, huge, very stiff to the likes of Luk Folly,has been omitted, had a very strong game against Richmond a couple weeksago and look Edwards is on the extended bench, so those could be a couple themost so that the stiffest exclusions in Al History, but will wait and see whathappens there. I'm actually gonna be going to eagles here. I think they'regoing to use up to state in to their advantage. I think that forward line aswell, we talked a bit. I think I touched upon last week that the experience of Jolon s attackingtrio and Karen Hawkins and Rolin will be the reason that they defeat the dogs,because they're attacking trail of Bruce and what are attacking Jo, Ireally have Bruce and Norton is more superior, obviously camedown to the last kick to prove that point, but the end of the day. I thinkthat will also happen here with West Coast and the bull dogs.Arguably West Coast had the best for line in the competition, but I'mactually going to be going the eagles here, yeah, regardless I'm going to be captain inbotton, sue coach oil see what happens and then lastly, well this is an entryintrigueing game, Carlton, Adelaide I'll, tell you what, if, if the blowsdrop, this prepare all hell to break lose. I love. This is on Sunday t forforty, because all eyes will be on it and I will love the crow to come outand just just get a really hard for t winand just kill them with pressure and speed, and everything like that becausebe awesome to see. Calton have another gut wrenching loss, I'm sorry for anykind of supporters listening, but I just I love to see you guys lose givensang Cura sort on similar past in terms of listen. Have men for the last sortof few years. So will be very interesting to see what happens there.I will be going or I will be going for the cars but will be tipping colds, andprobably I think this will be the type of when that they're going to get allthe convents in really saying it's fine, it's fine! You know, I'm going tocancel is September holidays, I'm Don of the grand final we're gonna, bethere, whereas you've really just beat an Adelaide, but we want and see whathappens there. That's gonna be an awesome game. I will be tipping Colton,but if Adelaide when I tell you what it's going to be a great Sunday nightand it's going to be a great week after that to see what happens in the presswith Calton, however, I think that is just a bout going to sum up. Therecording I've been talking about now in fifteen minutes now, and so youprobably seek him of voice if you've managed to stay on this long. If youhave well done if you haven't well you're, obviously not listening to thisso Butera, but anyway, it's been awesome for Hamish to give me theprivilege of posing this episode, not that he really had much of a choice.I pressured him to he him into letting metake this opportunity. Given he wasn't available, he was Kantos just sort ofget the potty you week off. I was like no, no! No! No! I want to do this. OneI'm going to see I'm going to go solo. So, apart from the sort of you know, remarks or senators m mighthave come out Chinese. You know it was very cool to get thisopportunity to talk about just about forty and just talk absolute trible,but yeah. It was hope you took a bit out of that sort of off season segmentor, if you did, you can hopefully get in sort into howmuch of that bit of the A fl. If he didn't fair enough to doing the nineand nine percent of the population is sort of roll. Your Eyes, whenever Imentioned it, yeah awesome we can for ye to come up.Sorry Awesome, Wakan, fully coming up is that's probably a reason. Why shouldend this episode now because I'm starting to speak absolutely Gibrish,as I spake thy cameras, taking a very but looks of it? A very courageous mark is is just about notknocked up, read close with a knee, but go to the third quarter there in theBRISBAND game about four minutes, and that's just what I've seen that's ahuge grab. So I'm just going to answer here now we're in an hour a nineteengood luke to Everin in super coach and typic and panting. I think we're allgoing to need it, but yeah. I will catch you guys. Probably next week,CHEESE.
