Welcome back to the on the ball podcast. Another episode of the best potty going round, once again joined by the lads pilch and Rowy, and today we are doing a fairly normal episode, but today the meet and tatoes the middle of the episode, the good part in between the review and previews, a little bit different. With sort of been toying with this idea for a little bit of an AFL best players list, and we've decided on the number and that's top twenty. We've all submitted our top S and we've averaged it out to get a top twenty. So I think it's actually a pretty good list. If we just went individually, I'm sure mom would have been disgraceful and you also been good. But I'm glad I'll look like somewhat of an expert with your boys opinions balancing me out, so I appreciate that. Also got apologize to these boys. I've had them waiting for an hour and twenty five minutes at the time of recording, so share outs to them. They were keen to watch some test cricket and now I've dragged them into chats ball sack about footy, which we love. But first of all semi finals review. Boys, wait, two of the finals. Absolutely awesome round. Will start with the rosive. What did you make of the two games last weekend it was a very sports bet focus for me. I had a lot of few bets on how to two hundred and Fifty Dollar Lod brokes bonus bent on through a bit of a bit of smart plays. But yeah, I won one bet over about twenty five for the weekend, so I was great for me. But now it was Friday night. Was a bit as expected as in terms of semifinals go like could have been better. I think we all knew the cats getting out up a special without toby. But yeah, I think be teen their lot did the best they could to keep the audience interested in with like a five goal marge in the last quarter, hyping it up to be one point thriller. But now it was. It was a deserting whin. Cats are always going to make the Prelum, let's be real. So they're in now for big challenge this week. But then obviously Saturday. I think going into the match, you know, I was thinking the dogs raising this and if lots of people told me no way, that the lines have gotten covered but um, now I was right. It was, and you know, it was probably the game of the year my opinion, which was awesome to say. I knew these two teams pretty evenly matched. So yeah, it was great to see. It was great to see such an incredible performance and yeah, I'm just it was just wrapped to the quality of footage that happened, especially that last quarter of a couple of minutes left, no idea who was going to go through the next week and no idea whose season was going to end. So yeah, it'd so our footy should you played, but now as an awesome, awesome weekend and can't wait from all this week. Yeah, that was the final like eight or ten minutes. was just cooked in that game, like because they're both things. Pretty much just needed behind for the last like eight minutes and even obviously, like they're...

...trying to keep goals, but that's sort of what the margin needed to go ahead. So it's just hectic. And then obviously Bailey Smith slotted the left, I said, the veins. Yeah, what are You thinking about that celebration pillage? Did you? Did you like it or not? Really, I actually have a time. I actually got around it. Oh can't. I I got around it and I'm ashamed. You Ay easy. I'm ashamed to say it, but yeah, I looked at Um, I saw the celebration, I thought about mixed a and I'm like now I've got to get around it. So, yeah, they are. saw a video of featuring mixed. Day to day it was mathisson flying in the crowd. Rainer I stayed, was laughing days Ling in the backroom. What a ship like. We'll blame it on concussion symptoms. But yeah, I did say that. I was a bit like it's not the greatest look going round and two of the boys as really shattered. You're just pissing yourself. But Oh yeah, I swear the camera didn't catch the celebration. Well, I don't know if you guys think it the channel you went on for so long, like I rated it, but like maybe for the first two seconds. You know, quick, a quick, you know. I ball a few fans running and through this be literally stopped did it. Teammates celebrated, ran away and but he was just still left there doing it. So it was well, I love the fact that he rathered up the fans, but like Jesus, you had there was three minutes left, exact baily equalize like a mettle later. So they lost that. All eyes would about on him. But yeah, yeah, at first, at first I was cringing, but the longer it went on, the Fund eer it got for me actually outside kiss myself. So yeah, he committed, which I think Simpora to a celebration. You've got to commit like desma does. And Yeah, all right, I have to say it. First I was critical, like I was like come on, but I think it was anyone other than Bailey Smith, I would have got around it. But so now of like I've gone. I've embracing it. Good stuff in the bars. Pilch to Geelong scare you a little bit or not really, not really made my views on that game would just a complete different tier of team with the giants compared to Geelong, just a far worse team. I don't think Gelong we're in any special I don't think the game itself was nearly as high in intensity as the bulldogs Brisbane match. So I expect the Port Adelaide bulldogs prelimb to be a lot more entertaining and closer. But who knows, we'll see. And as a port fan I know you're a strong believe in the Jings, but will try and have somewhat of the normal conversation. Where were you? I was talking about this with mom. Actually didn't know what team you would rather play. which team were you hoping to play out of the Saturday game? Will all wake and on the night I was barracking for the bulldogs because I was less scared of the bulldogs. But then it started to hit me that if they're if they're beating brizzy up the Gaba, then they're clearly a best side. So then I was like, doesn't really matter, we're gonna have to play our best. If...

...we play our best will we need away. So yeah, I was going for the doggies. Yeah, that makes sense, because I'll see about that this week as well. I was like, Paul, would rather play Geelong, but then I was thinking like if they make the grand final, but I was like, well, if they've just beaten Melbourne, then whoever they play is probably going to be shit themself as well. But you're not great finish to the BRIZZY Western bulldogs game. I thought the crowd was going to be the swaying factor, but the doggies stood up and showed how good they are. Shamed about credit weightman being able with concussion. I believe man potentially the wink. Well, happened to the bond? Well, he's he had a knee issue and he had scance today which came up clear, but apparently he's real sore. so He's in doubt. Surely they play him like it's probably not going to be one of the finger play will pay. Yeah, he might not be full impact though, which is not good for the doggies. One more thing. What are what are your boys thoughts on the umpiring or the the criticism that they copped? I only criticisms too much personally. I mean I'm piring. Is One of the toughest gigs in the world in everything. I'm because you know, you it's always criticized jobs in the world. Yeah, I'm like some decisions obviously didn't go the lines way. Yes, if those decisions were made directly, sure they could have won, but the end of the day, like we're forgetting the fact that, you know, there was within the fact that the lines, you know, got some to you know, I Zack Bailey's goal. He key probably took two thousand and twenty five steps Caleb Daniels delivered out of bounds was just rubbish. So yeah, if you weighed up there was more, probably more freeze. It could have got a lives way than the dogs. But the end of the day that's every single AFL game. So if you want to put into two perspective, the premiership ladder would be different if we taken to account the UMPIRES. So I think the criticism was ridiculous. Thing is very harsh. I mean as much as you know it's tough when it's your team and you're getting, you know you're getting, you're losing by point and are mediumpiring decisions in the game that could have made that different. But at the end of the day it's not like jumps of running out there trying to win the game of the dogs. Like I said this on our group chat earlier the week when a few boys are saying how brism robs like yeah, they probably robbed of some chances, but in the day it's the dogs are on top of the free kick count and so the cats, because of the way they play and they're always the first to get the hands of the ball. They always have the most disposals. It creates the most opportunity to get free. So that's why Richmond, when they were top the ladder, you as we can probably recall, they never really had that many touches. It's because they play that ferocious, get it forward at all costs, risky sort of game style, which does it result in a few more freeze against. But it's yeah, it just depends on how you play. So I think the Christens too harsh. Yeah, like I said, they should have been some decisions go the other way. But at the end of the day, well, I think people shown is just focus on the fact that was probably the game of the year and just, you know, sook it up. So yeah, it...

...was. It was a game of the year for me. I just hated the fact that all the comments on facebook and stuff, we're all just taught to the arms, even from the neutrals. Like I just wanted to see one where it was like that was game of the year. That was incredible. But you know, hopefully, hopefully changes. Yeah, yeah, that's actually so frustrating that I fell like so often everyone just turns to the UMPIRES and I know it's an easy scapegoat for a losing fan or a neutral who is gone for the lines. But yeah, I swear ninety percent of the time it's uncalled for. And then, obviously the big news outside of those two games came out last night. I think lucky knee or reportedly requesting a trade back to three are is about start raising a family and they want to raise it in Perth. will go to the expert list. Manager on the panel, erosive. What did you make of this development? I was it was a nice little shock. It's awesome when a big name player just comes absolutely out of nowhere and just says he's going to be moving, which so, yeah, I don't know's nothing much else to it to report. Like than any other move. You know, it's a play that just wants to go home, so it's got to trade away if it's especially for family reasons. So yeah, I mean I question the move going to Brisbane now because, you know, if they obviously I thought this is going to happen in the future, maybe, you know, would have stayed. But no, bit'll for I get done, given I think Brisbane came out and said that they're not going to hold him at the club against his will. So it's probably one of the ones that will get done, but yeah, it'll be tied into that whole cherry business. So just makes the whole trade pretty lot more complicated, which is great. So yeah, yeah, it'll be interesting to see what Brisbane end up getting for. I like, as you said, it's family reason, so you can't really be too mad. But yeah, it's pretty like, I don't know, I'd feel a bit pissed off if I was a brisbane fan right now. Like it's a hundred how long has he been? This is his third season or something. Yeah, like it seems pretty shortsighted to go there with, as you mentioned, road that probably in the back of his mind that he might want to go back to firth raise a family. But for yeah, we only look at it in footy terms. So huge win for the dockers. You thought that losing charrow was a bit of a hit and then they just go and gain a brownlow metals, so they're laughing all right. On the spot power rankings, PIL CHOSS, I know you'll probably be a bit cheapish putting poured up high, but of the last four teams, who do you think most like? Well, what wonder for what? Who Do you think the favorites to win the flag, Melbourne Port, all dogs, jewelong, all the bulldogs of up to along was that I just haven't been impressed by delong this final series and their finals record speaks for itself over the last ten years and I think the...

...bulldogs are actually quite dangerous. And if they beat port in Adelaide, then what's to say they won't win the flag? Yeah, that's yeah, that would be a massive win for the dough is rowy. Do you agree with that order? Yeah, I definitely agree with the melbound Paul. That's probably about ninety five percent of people are also saying the moment. I think it's a very good chance to be the here the days. But yeah, the awesome seen melon port granny. I know because as soon as pilled said out of things, I was in thinking, well, you know who's more likely to upset this weekend? Cats over the day's or dogs? are a port and they that one. I can't really decide. So if then a then my reasoning goes to well, who would win in a match out of to long and the dogs? And that still doesn't Arrow down. But if I, if I have to choose their the maybe still just the cats. are still think they're firepower forward is still a bit too strong. But yet but insane that they're Um. The way they're playing now is not convincing at all. It's not quick, it's not ferocious, it's not intimidating. So yeah, I don't know. I I think the bulldogs have potential to be a more sort of scary team, but I just I still can't shy away from the fact that the cats had this incredible list and they still playing the way they are. So maybe I need a jumpop jump ship off them. But yeah, I'm actually really undecided on that. But yeah, not needed for a brands just made his fifty for England and they're not four hundred. So there you go. The crab. The crabs water lose weight of fifty. One more thing I'd add for the long is no Tom Stewart and I think Dania fields playing with an injured hand as well. Yeah, true, yeah, the just to rebut that though, after a long yeah, that's I think that's a mine under under rate of loss. But yeah, the only thing I'd say in Gelong's favor is they're already played it at optus so old and they're they've been good. Next Ball. Sorry, sticked it behind off. That's actually a classic. You just lose concentration when you get a picky. Why you watching it pilled? Sorry, I've got the scores up, but okay, deal me to anything the time something happens or yeah, yeah, yeah, sorry, I don't have it. Yeah, jeelong already well played optics last week and there I'm sure they've like made a bit of a home. That had a huge winning against Freeo during the regular season, so maybe that's somewhat of a string to their bar. Coming up against Melbourne, I haven't played there for a while, or I don't even know when they last played there, but haven't played there in the final series. At least interested to see what the crowd situation rations going to be like because I was actually doing some research and I'm pretty sure there's no border restrictions between South Australia and Western Australia, so I was wondering, like if port beat the dogs, would they be able to get the crowd over, and that could have a pretty significant impact on the GF, which might have played a part of...

...my rankings. Be Yeah, I've got Melbourne, port, Gelong, doggies, but at this point it actually looks like all four teams are pretty tight, especially it's anybody's easing coming in hot off that win or at time for our top twenty. So it's probably not going to be the most engaging revelation. So if you boways have any objections to the orders, I might point out when there's someone who was like really low on someone's list or really high and they've been put in a certain position. But I'll just shout out the five people who just missed the top twenty. Is Honorable Mentions, as we always do. We've got rory lad miss just missed out and I really had them in the top ten sus, probably surprising to him. Superman. Yeah, buddy frank will missed out. Could have been my doing, but we'll leave that unknown. And liver at or a missed out. Also could be my doing. Videos that high merits and Steven may also just missed out. They were pretty consistent a across our three but didn't like just have a high enough ranking in any of us to get them over the line. Number twenty we've got Maxi Gorne and a little hint, we actually don't have him as the number one Ruckman. So that's that's an interesting one, and something that actually really interested me is none of us had grundy hide all. No one had him in their top twenty five. So that's that's an interesting point. And Darcy, I believe same thing. I think I was the only one who had him above forty. So gone and the other Ruckman, who will leave nameless for now, a lot higher than the rest of the corney number two. Interesting. Then we actually had jake stringer at the number nineteen spot. It's exactly where I had it. Yeah, she's exactly had it. If we said that last year you've probably been like, like surely not, but sort of had a bit of resurgence this year. Missed stiff to miss out on the a side. Then we had the Tomahawk in it eighteen. Can confirm he's the highest and only key forward in this top twenty list. So we're all in the Greens that here's the top key forward in the game, just ahead of Buddy Franklin. As I mentioned, he was in the Honorable Mentions to Charlie Dixon pilch. Yeah, I know, had him forty one. Okay enough, fair enough, I respected it. Red I's will be happy as a hater of Charlie Dixon. Then we had Sam Walsh in at seven. Team will bet you can't and fans will say it's a bit low, but yeah, for someone in there, what is it this third season as a inside midfield are pretty ridiculous. Then number sixteen, I believe her up to Locky Neil, the man who requested a trade. We don't actually have him as the highest Brittan player, which might be a shock to...

...some of you. That's because next we have Dane's Orco who, thanks to my rankings, has pulled a lot higher than locky nel. Just picked him in our top twenty. And that brings us to our number fourteen, who we had his nap five. Maybe didn't have his best season this year, struggle with the injury and stuff, but as Pilch, well, I think we all believe a pill ch had him at number five and I certainly believe in myself. On his day he could be the best player in the competition. Then we had it dusty Martin next another basically you can say the exact same thing from that five. Can just copy and paste that. They're not his best season at all, but arguably the best finals player of all time and one of the best players of all time, full stop. Then we've got the first of two port our lay players in this list. We've got Travis boke next. I've actually lost track. We're up to in the what I think this like number twelve. But Travis broke in next. He was one of the most consistent people across our three rankings. All had them within about six spots. I had him lower than consensus. I. Yeah, of course I put him top five. No, now, we actually all had him lower, but it was just because it was like consistent. Sounds sounds weird, but if you go I mean like if someone has five, fifty and fifty, then they're going to be lower than him. But yeah, the highest was actually pilled. So still casually. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven eight. All right. Yeah, Toby Green's in a number eleven. Yeah, I kind of dog does here. I can't lie. I had him like in the S so apologies for that, but yeah, I had him lowers as well. Yeah, I don't know. I feel like, yeah, I love Toby Green, but the suspension stuff starting to lose respect for me. Like, is he that good of a player if he's off the park every three weeks. I don't know. I think that's got to be way up. Then number ten we have Mr Patrick Dangerfield legit could probably say the same thing about five and Martin's him. Probably not his best season, but has been one of the most reliable players in the AFL in the last like eight years or so. Absolutely killer. I had him lower than you boys. You both had them in your top six, so I dogged him a little bit there. And Darcy parish in at nine. That was my doing. I hadn't in my top five after a killer season. You've always had it around the twenty mark. So not that outrageous that he is stuck into the top ten, but probably not the consensus of the general public. I mean had only wins. The Brown is either brownlow favorite or the number two beauside a favorite, fifteen favorite, no one between. Yeah, the ends what pretty on sports at his favorite and, as they say, money never lies. So yes, he's the favorite. John, explain that. Saying pilch interested. So if...

...people are, people are voting with their actual money through sports bet, than they should be the most accurate favoriteism mechanism. That's an interesting point. I like it because you know, people are just going to throw money or something they don't believe in. Well, there's probably a few situation of true mates. They're glad if you be able have anyway. Yeah, so wines in eight, which is interesting. We don't believe the brownlow favorite is the best player or even in top seven. Are Surely as lowest on wines. No, row, you actually had him. We all had them very even. Item Sixteen, Rowe Thirteen, you fourteen. So we could argue fake fan bake put o'laid F and A. Just kidding. You definitely had Robbie Gray in your top twenty, so not a fake. The number seven, we have our number one rachman, that Knui. I had him at number eight, rowing number seventeen, pilch number ten, so we're all in a grants that here. I actually row. He had gone your button, so we're not all the grants. It is our top Rackman, but averaged out and yeah, pretty close. The number six, row, he's number three. Actually the took Miller. I had him a bit lower than maybe what the average show would. I just think the fact that he is I don't know, I feel like it was pretty easy for him to stand out in that midfield this year, not taking away anything from us. Still got him in like my top fifteen, but compare him to like a Melbourne midfield or something. I think it's a little bit easier to stand out that team. But understand why. Your number three, then that's in our top five. And you may have noticed row you haven't said your boy, which is good sign. I haven't said my boy. Yeah, we also haven't said Robbie Gray, but we also haven't said Dull Howard. Those boys aside. Number five is actually Jack mccrae. You hadn't four, Roy Pill Chim six. I won't mention where I had him, but I don't do a little bit. But I don't think I have too much influence on his position because I think all the top four had better consistency across the three. Number four was Jack Steel, just to sound top three. Yeah, so probably on the bench once again, not in the side of it. Yeah, I will stake me in some way onto the field. The next man can play half for the playing but that's Christian. But TRUCA, interestingly, not the best Melbourne play I. According to us. I me and Roy actually didn't. Dirty pilch had him at the number two. Interesting PILCH and Roy very different takes on the truck. All of our side of things. But call over in a number two. All three of US had him in the top ten, and then the number one was actually unanimous. We all believe that Marcus want and Pelli is the best player in the AFL right now. Any interesting pickups from that list, Pilch, what were our biggest what will lack some of...

...our large discrepancies? Rory Lad was probably the biggest discrepancy. Roy had him at number nine, you had him at twenty three and I had them at like forty. So wait the Superman. Yeah, I probably applied similar logic to the took mill thing, but probably been a bit harsh on it. There was getting a bit tougher points, but now I understand why young top ten. I don't think many players can just go from a half back to a gutsman fit absolute beast. Trying to see any other big I had Jeremy McGovern at twenty five. You boys didn't have him, so that was something interesting. God Ru mcgovernor should be governed. James CICILY was an interesting one. We talked about him in the before we came on. Are Obviously hasn't played footy for eighteen months. I actually still had them in about ten position, I think because I just believe in the great man that much. You boys didn't have him, which is completely understandable, but that'll be an one to watch for next year, I think, to see how good he is. I'M A pluggage row. He had him twenty, pilch having forty. I had him high for s. So that was pretty big difference. Harris Andrews another one, pretty different. So yeah, any any people you think we got wrong? Rolly or I had took that high, because I think he's a gun. I think he's just got everything. I's got the speed, he's running as quick as he's does the style of games as at the end of the Games and can rack up thirty, thirty, forty and lays the most tackles on the ground. So I just think that I just love watching play because you know you could do everything. You know good sprink out of the packs, but then it can stop people from doing it something. I think he's a gun. But yeah, I don't know. To broady's disagreement, I snuck Aaron Hall in that top fifty. I had roll on Roll Marshall and there at thirty six. Apart from that, I can remember I had Sicily in there, but then I thought like it was a bit just too annoying to I didn't want to pick like an interceptor that hasn't played through season. Like it feels like a you know start meet. I would have been like yeah, yeah, that was my logic for not having him. I did originally, but but they in saying that I had to see more in it in the s. So did you boys have a liter earlier in your top fifty? Yeah, yeah, we all did. I had him forty four, Roy thirty four and you had him twenty five. So not too bad on that one. Tom Mitchell was actually the biggest surprise for me, me and Rowe didn't have him pilch out all the way down at thirty five. I thought he was going to be like a lock for top twenty. So we're all just not believers in Tom Mitchell, but not sure I'm surprised if I believe myself. Tom Stewart another one with a massive discrepancy.

I had a minute like fifteen. Roy had him all the way down at forty seven, pilch twenty six. Column Mills also row didn't include him. Pillage twenty five and he's sixteen. So yeah, but I'm sure there was a couple of it. Yeah, accidents. But anyway, but could go on for days talking about that list. But that's something the NFL does. An NFL a top one hundred at the end of the season. I always find it pretty interesting to see the experts opinions. Where'd you boys have Robbie Gray? Not include that was a jack. But where'd you have frankly, Roy had him at twenty one and I'll be blatantly honest, so did having it having here. Yeah, I had them at eleven and now also had lucky neal at seven. I thought you boys doggs locking nel. Yeah, that and I didn't think it was that with this year. Or Am I must my mistake? I could be UN wasn't, but he played. He played most of the year with an injury, I think. Yeah, and last year was like, I took last year into account. Fifteen, but I let's just think. I look through that list and every player head of him, I'm thinking I'm probably still picking that player out of him. But then, yeah, I'm just I'm still being back to last year. But I don't think he'll hit that highed last year again. But yeah, I'm not. I'd just picking everyone edit him before him. So, yeah, next year's going to be so crook that free of midfield. It's going to be interesting to see if he can get back to his best, though, or if this is sort of the lock in your list. Be Staring there. But yeah, he will, all right, he will, should be. I can he'll be the best midfield, midfield or in there if he goes back. Yeah, I wonder if I'm vasive for one way a lot more forward now that because you got neil's the wrong racial like maybe to try and prevent him from being injured all the time. And if they're going to make fine, need a target as well, for they're a bit there for targets up forward. So surely Munday just takes a seat at halfback? Yeah, yeah, it's about that time, I think. Yeah, I wouldn't had that like play like a dyson. Heppel rolls about the sixty. Yeah, yeah, I'm still running through the midfield. Yeah, I don't hate that poll. Actually that's something they could do with it, like they've got Nathan Wilson. But yeah, they go that's that's a decay. Who not do potential players that could do with a role. refersal next years. It always happens. You know, who would have thought this time last year Bailey Dal will be an all stranging halfback? So yeah, so he was a potential segment. Yeah, it's actually not a bad shower my write that down. Couple ideas. Haynes and Andrews K forwards. Both went up forward on the weekend. Yeah, actually took some big marks up there. Yeah, it's actually I find it so weird that they can just chat like it...

...happens in no sport, I don't think, except for footy, like or maybe like in Rugby League and rob in a little bit, but like in socking. Don't to see Virgil Vandike becomes striker like that. I actually think it's sick that they could do that. But that could definitely be segments, so look out for that one in the next few weeks. We've got some good episodes coming up. But I think that'll do us for the top twenty chat. Just thought that would be a fun thing. It was part of the reason why I made these boys wait now and twenty minutes from when I said the podcast should start anyways, but that loves us into our finals week three preview. Also know there's the preliminary finals. We're just probably going to be a tough one for pillage to get through, because I know he doesn't want to test the waters on the Jink's Theorem, but he can say his peace on the first game. Melbourne versutilong at up to Statium, the lines twelve and a half in the demon's favor. How do you see this one, pilch? It's actually I know I've slater along at the start of the show, but it's actually a hard pick, especially with that line in there, the twelve and a half, because I could definitely see it being a close game. I'd certainly tip Melbourne, but wouldn't be surprised if it was close. So I might actually lane along at the line. Yeah, I think I'm actually going to agree with you there. I think no, I'll tell you Melbourne head to Headje along with the line like twelve and ask not about line for a finals preland game. Rolly, what do you reckon? I'm not sure. I'll something about back to that round twenty three game and apart from that, well, I look the come back. I don't think that dominance from Joe Long will happen again because, sorry, the arm no. So when they when delong just kept on kicking it down leavers, throwing us. So I meant sure they're going to have a new plan of attack. So I still don't mind the cat here. But I still think the days are going to win the whole thing. I think will be the year of the day. So I'll back the day's head to head. But it's a close line, not one. Maybe maybe the cats of the line as well, but I don't know. I always find it hard picking the other team when the line is so close, just because like, yeah, can't. It's saying, like I think this will be less than a goal. But like you still think one of the teams is going to win. So, like, I don't know, it's weird. I it's I find it so high picking lines. Gone One team and they went the line is close the other one. So I don't know, I think I think maybe cats are a line there. But Yeah, I just hatehpe picking those ones, but I think that he's the whole things all back them in headtohead. Yeah, it's does. Your point makes sense because you're backing in one to twelve as opposed to twelve to infinity. So yeah, yeah, I think it's actually going to be a huge chest for Chris Scott, as you mentioned. I was like second guess myself on Brad Chrisco. It's Chris. Yeah,...

...like they've played so recently and didn't go to plans, so they should have something schemed up and we'll see. Like he's always had really good players, is at his disposal, so we've never really like he's never ever had to be. It's an amazing coach, but to beat this Melbourne team it's going to take something very special from the cats, but they're definitely capable of it. We'll go to rowy so we can get a unbiased, unjink scared opinion be thought. Adelaide versus Dougies Games, the Sadday night game. Very excited for this one. At the Adelaide ovall full of as I mentioned last time. I think twenty five thousand bogans or something, but lines twelve and a half. What do you reckon? Roy, the smiling, I've been more confident and saying port. You know, we bought on one leg and wait min out. I think it's just too few targets add too few firepower for the dogs in compared to port. I know dogs always had that star midfield, but you know, we bond obviously going to probably be playing a lot more limited minutes in there and trill is not really running through there anymore. No, there is Dunkley, you know, there's any so much the others can do. You know, mccrane, liver and Bas and all that. So now I think, yeah, in terms of firepowerling up front, port's going to have the most swapoon. I think you know Dixon, rosy, Robbie Gray as well ZAC, but as Fantasia as well, who was huge. I don't know if he's in Inji it or not, though, or he's enginery game, but it was something else. Yeah, why there? Yeah, I think just all those options for Port, plus just, you know, the Dalky and mids and all that will be too much too for the dogs to arm handle. So with that one and people confident in port will have it a head to head in a line as well. Yeah, it's a tough one, but yeah, I have to say I'm a little bit more comfortable with this one. Think port look really good. The boys got a dove in the same fool, which is really like to see. They'd the undefeated billanel. So the schools firing on Allso olders one to fifty. But yeah, I don't know, like the match up against the dogs. But in saying that, I'll tip the dogs. Wink, wink, nudge nudge. Will be tipping the dogs, although always kind always got a tip. Again support. I thought Geelong, we're going to be them. I thought the dogs going to be the last time. And I just realize these are the same roundups, matchups from the last round. Weird footy, but a true yes. But yeah, dogs, easy DUB. So we'll go dogs to the line and head to head. Okay, I give state base field. Do you want to comment anything or not really? Yeah, once again, I think just in the bulldogs nature, they they fight till the end. They're not going to get blown out. But I do think...

I'm biased. Whatever. I do think port, if they turn up, are clearly the better team. So certainly tip them head to head. But what's the line? Twelve and a half again? Yeah, I would actually once again be tempted to go the dogs at a line. But yeah, hopefully we had to close games because you know, we saw how good a close game is on Saturday night. So I think the port bulldogs game will be sick. Both teams are very exciting. So yeah, that's true. Well, they're round twenty. Three Games, unbelievable. So the style of footy they'll playing was great. So hopefully that can and that in front of that was that marble. So no fans that this time has an atmosphere it. It's going to be sick. Hopefully there's a I thought the crowd opt to shout out to the people of Perth. That was sick. I thought on Friday night GW litill gone for the giants. It was a Piss. Yeah, but yeah, they're like they were full into it. There's a lot of people there. so that was really cool seeing. Hopefully that's the side of things to come and hopefully maddie nichols isn't umpiring nothing. EIOLES, yeah, fair enough, but yeah, we've said our tips. They're think good episode. Be Nice and short, concise, get the boys back to watching the crickets go the pommies don't fast say something. It's going to say phrase, something like don't like Indians, but I was men just said does that to say don't like the Indians, but almost forgot the bar. But yeah, anyways, don't like the eating Credet team or I like Australia. So up the palms and we will catch you next week with some sort of with actually, I think we're going to be doing like a brown low preview prediction. Might get some other boys involved, maybe a few call INS from the lads. I was having the brain storm today, so my get that going for some Brown law predictions. But yet same time, same place next week. We'll catch you then. Thanks for joining me, boys, and go port Jeez, cork up.
