The SuperFooty Podcast - Preliminary finals

The Hawks and Swans are through to the decider and in this week's SuperFooty Podcast the boys preview every angle of the game's biggest clash.

Jon Anderson joins the panel to dissect the Hawks' selection issues leading into Saturday, and there's mixed views on what role Cyril Rioli should play against the Swans. Of course that's now the only selection issue facing Alastair Clarkson.

The boys give their tips - and Norm Smith medal fancies - in what Ando says could be one of the great showdowns of forward firepower in grand final history.

We also take a look at the Swans' shrewd recruiting (it's not all about COLA), and the best stories leading into what should be a fitting finale to the 2014 season.

But it's not all Hawthorn and the Swans. The lads discuss how Port Adelaide and North Melbourne can take the next step in 2015.

And after the tumultuous week in footy, there's plenty of talk on the coaching manouevres at Adelaide - and potentially the Gold Coast.

Plus the fallout of Essendon's court loss has the boys wondering: Can James Hird - or Mark Thompson for that matter - coach at senior level next season?

It's a big show, so enjoy the Grand Final edition of The SuperFooty Podcast.

The SuperFooty Podcast - Finals week 2

It's preliminary final week and the boys are excited after a thrilling round of semi-final matches.

Fremantle and Geelong are out in straight sets, and while Huddo might be disappointed the boys take a look at the Cats' list and discuss where to now for Chris Scott's men.

Ross Lyon came armed with some stats after his side's loss to Port ... but do the boys think Freo can challenge again in 2015? And there was some breaking news on a potential Docker target during the podcast.

Boomer was hit with a one-match ban by the MRP, and the boys were staggered by a couple of things from the incident and penalty. Whatever happened to 'the September Clause'?

There was plenty of trade talk, with Mick Warner saying Friday's upcoming court verdict could be a pivotal day for Essendon. But why?

Plus the Hawks' selection posers ahead of their clash with Port's young guns, the boys' Brownlow selections and we reveal who Robbo may be taking to football's night of nights.

All that and more in this week's SuperFooty podcast.

The SuperFooty Podcast - Finals week 1

THE premiership dream may be over for Richmond and Essendon but the boys haven't forgotten them in this week's SuperFooty podcast.

With Sam Edmund still collecting his luggage at the airport after his Adelaide adventure, Jon Anderson steps into the breach and casts his educated eye over Essendon - and Bomber.

While Ando likes what he sees in the red and black, does he think Mark Thompson will be there to see through the job he started?

The Swans and Hawks advanced to the preliminary final and the boys wondered aloud whether everyone is just playing for second place.

North and Port Adelaide were super impressive at the weekend, earning high praise from the panel. But who has the better chance when they face Geelong and Fremantle this weekend?

There was also plenty of trade talk, with Paddy Ryder, Mitch Clark, Dayne Beams and James Frawley discussed.

And which panel member thinks Heretier Lumumba might just be "too difficult" for an AFL club environment?

All that and more in this week's SuperFooty podcast.

The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 23

It's finals time and in this week's SuperFooty Podcast, the boys take a look at every match-up in the first week of September.

There's analysis of every game and tips, while the boys discuss where the Hawthorn-Geelong stoush sits in the VFL/AFL's great rivalries.

Travis Boak's comments from earlier in the season have added spice to an already intriguing elimination final with the Tigers - and the boys can't wait.

Essendon and North Melbourne meet in the other elimination final, but are the two teams the great mysteries of the competition? Who knows what either team may dish up this weekend? The boys try to explore.

But don't worry - it's not all finals on the menu. If your team isn't playing this September the boys discuss every team that missed the eight, dissecting what went right and wrong and where they see your club heading in 2015.

ANZ Stadium cops some stick from the lads ahead of the Sydney-Freo clash, the boys ask which coach might most feel the heat next season while Mick gives Warnie a whack.

The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 22

Could the Swans rest Buddy against Richmond? That’s among the scenarios the boys toss up as they discuss the team most likely to sneak into the eight in the Round 22 SuperFooty Podcast.

Huddo, Sammy and Mick run their eyes over all the weekend's action, with one top-four team "shot" in their quest for the flag - at least in Mick's eyes.

Sammy gives you - as well as his builders - the inside word on the ongoing Mick Malthouse v Mark 'Stevo' Stevens stoush, which continues to split footy fans.

The Hawks took the points in their top-four clash against Geelong on Saturday night, and the boys discuss the fallout from the battle between the two great rivals.

Mick rates Jimmy Bartel's 'dive' against Lindsay Thomas''s from earlier in the year. Plus the boys have some mail on Cyril's injury.

After declaring earlier this season that Freo couldn't win the flag, Sammy admits the Dockers are starting to make him

A couple of former Cats, now at Adelaide, may be feeling the heat after the Crows' costly loss, while the conversation gets lively in our weekly segment Is It Just Me Or ...

It's Tiger Time in this week's SuperFooty Podcast as Mick returns from the Federal Court with a spring in his step.

Richmond is one of five teams in contention for the final position top eight, and the boys nominate which team they think will extend their season beyond Round 23.

The boys have Melbourne - and James Frawley - in their sights following the club's deplorable effort against GWS. What does Sammy think the Dees should do with free agent Frawley? Listen and find out.

Sammy wrote Fremantle off a few weeks ago, but has Sunday's performance forced a re-think?

The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 20

Who's the most dangerous team in the race for the eight?

In this week's SuperFooty Podcast the boys discuss which team could do some damage as they analyse those in contention for a berth in September.

WITH Mick Warner all over the Essendon saga in the Federal Court, Jon Anderson joins starting line-up.

Ando is a big wrap for someone out west, while Sammy Edmund thinks a certain South Australian team is one to avoid come finals time.

With Huddo and Ando in the house, the Cats are hard to avoid - especially after Saturday night's epic against the Dockers.

In Be Kind Rewind, Sammy has a clip for the Pies and one of their big stars ... have a listen and see if you agree.

Huddo has a quick look at the midfield in this year's All-Australian side, and after hearing his list you won't be surprised to selectors might be in for their toughest year yet.

And Ando tells us why you shouldn't be backing young Bulldog Marcus Bontempelli to win this year's Rising Star.

All that and more in the Round 20 edition of The SuperFooty Podcast.
