The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 15

The unholy fixture that was Sunday night footy is top of the agenda this week, along with Eddie’s cheeky call for Collingwood compensation.

The Hawks got back on top of the ladder just in time for Clarko’s return to the hot seat, but with Cyril out of commission are they still a chance to defend their flag, and where to next for the caretaker with the 100% winning record?

Brad Scott’s post-game chat with the opposition is up for discussion, along with the tightening top-four and top-eight races and basement battles.

All that, plus Huddo’s epic fail of a test drive, Carlton’s massive rucking mistake and where are all the key defenders gone?

The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 14

Only one man could top this week's agenda, with tributes paid to retiring Brisbane great Jonathan Brown, a look back at his storied career and a look ahead to what's next for the big man.

With Jon Anderson in for Sammy, Huddo has a blue and white shoulder to cry on about the alleged end of the great Geelong era.

Mick gives the latest on the Essendon action in court as well as on the field, Collingwood's top four chances are assessed (along with the behaviour if its fiery coach) and the boys discuss the falling star that is Trent Cotchin.

All this, plus Mick Malthouse and Adam Goodes appearing in a star-studded Be Kind Rewind, Mick's Scott Selwood hallucination, and some tips on alternative viewing options when faced with horrors like Sydney v Richmond.

The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 13

It’s been a great weekend of footy on the pitch, but with resident expert Mick Warner in the studio, the Essendon saga tops the agenda of the latest SuperFooty Podcast.

Mick explains why the Bombers are taking this all the way to the Federal Court, debates the dilemma now facing the players, and discusses what might happen in a worst case scenario for Essendon and the league.

The Doggies finally showed some bite in an epic win over Collingwood, putting the Pies’ top-four hopes in serious danger. Meanwhile, in Sydney, Buddy rocketed back to superstar status in the (possible) grand final dress rehearsal.

At the other end, there’s the ever-increasing number of teams racing for the wooden spoon, with Mick still confident his beloved Tigers can stay the course.

All that, plus pizza-lover Heath Shaw among those getting the Be Kind Rewind treatment, Jonathan Brown’s post-footy options, and Sammy getting extremely fired up about the “colourless” footy coverage on a certain free to air network.

The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 12

The Sunday night rollercoaster at Etihad Stadium kicks off the Round 12 edition, with the boys discussing more Tigers turmoil and North finally nailing back-to-back wins.

Friday's nail-biter between Geelong and Carlton is also up for debate, with the Blues caught short(s) and the Cats again unconvincing despite the win.

There’s also the tussle at the top and Brisbane continuing to bounce back against the atrocious Doggies.

Not to mention bad haircuts, pesky runners, farcical umpiring and the happiest man in footy.

The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 11

After an unpredictable round of footy, a familiar topic leads the agenda yet again as the Tigers lurch from bad to worse. Dimma got fired up, but how much responsibility does he have to take and how much should the players – including captain Trent Cotchin – be copping?

North Melbourne are certainly travelling well – especially to Perth – but exactly how far can they go given their inconsistency so far? Has the eight already been set, and if not, who’s likely to fall out or squeeze in?

Can time finally be called on the Cats, and should we be calling for the end of Sydney’s cost of living allowance? And was there anything to fear in the big scares for the Hawks and the Power?

The biggest brain fades of the weekend stars Jarrod Waite and Steele Sidebottom and there’s some interesting whispers about the future job prospects of Tom Harley and Greg Swann.

There’s also the untold story of the travel divide between players and certain media personalities, Sammy’s admiration for the Dustin Fletcher of reality TV and Mick’s ASADA update as we get closer to ‘show’ time at Windy Hill.
