The SuperFooty Podcast - Grand Final

The premiership is done and dusted, and in this week's SuperFooty Podcast the boys discuss the Hawks' stunning performance against the Sydney Swans on Saturday.

While the Hawks were breathtaking, do the Swans have bigger issues or was their disappointing effort in the decider simply an aberration?

Huddo was on the voting panel for the Norm Smith Medal, but he's not in a rush to do it again. Why? And the boys ask: What was up with Nathan Buckley's votes?

The guys look ahead to the 2015 season and wonder if anyone can stop the brown and gold juggernaut.

The 'silly season' is about to kick off and there's plenty of trade talk. Huddo thinks a Swan might head north, Jarrad Waite has left the Blues while Dayne Beams is poised to be the big story of the exchange period. But what is he worth?

The Tigers may be sniffing around a Kanga and the Bombers may be up to their old trade tricks by circling a star Saint.

Finally Mick gives us the latest news on Essendon and the supplements saga, and the boys sign off by giving their highlights of the 2014 season.

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.
