The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 13

THE stink at the Gold Coast Suns leads the agenda and causes some heated debate in the Round 13 edition of footy’s best podcast.

As former star Karmichael Hunt sings like a canary on alleged cocaine use at the club, Huddo, Sammy and Mick discuss whether a franchise can ever be successful in Temptation City, with Mick suggesting the footy public will be in for a shock if and when the names of the players involved are revealed.

Sam Mitchell injecting some controversy into the Hawks v Bombers match also comes under scrutiny. Was it just a storm in a teacup, and was the under-pressure James Hird’s reaction justified?

There’s also the roaring Tigers, Buddy’s disappearance, Freo’s missing pieces and the fantastic Doggies, as well as Ivan’s soccer skills, the perils of household chores and is it just Huddo on the double.

The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 12

WEST Coast answers the call (but the boys still want to see more), the Cats are crying out for Dangerfield, Carlton’s big day and why the Blues should throw everything at Clarko.
They are among the topics on this week’s SuperFooty podcast.
After Melbourne’s impressive win at Geelong, the boys laud the Demons but dissect wha’s gone wrong for the Cats and come to one conclusion ... they need Patrick Dangerfield.
But are they the only suitors for the Crows star? Mick thinks one of the AFL’s powerhouses may also be into the free agent.
Angus Brayshaw inspired the Demons at Simonds Stadium, and the race for the AFL’s Rising Star award is heating up.
Patrick Cripps is among the men vying for Rising Star honours after lifting the Blues to victory over the Power at the weekend. Not surprisingly, Sammy was up and about after seeing his boys register their first win on home soil for the year.
John Barker has reinvigorated the Blues but can they maintain the rage under the caretaker?
Meanwhile, the boys question Port and whether Ken Hinkley’s side are now gone for 2015. Does the coach have to change his game plan?
West Coast continues its magnificent form but the boys aren’t 100 per cent sold on whether they are contenders in 2015.
“I just really want to see them play ... Hawthorn, Fremantle, Sydney, any of those sides to see how this, what we hear is a revolutionary press and zoning system, actually holds up against really good sides.”
The Tigers lost the day but had a win with Alex Rance re-signing, although one man was a little skeptical of the way the Tiger’s contract deal played out.
“Did Alex Rance play us all for suckers?”
The Adelaide-Hawthorn clash was discussed and that raised a bigger debate: what do fans think of Thursday night footy?
The Hawks disposed of the Crows pretty easily but they’re doing it differently in 2015. Clarko
“He’s a genius, Clarkson, so why doesn’t Carlton say ‘Here’s $10 million dollars, (a) five-year deal’ and make him an offer he can’t refuse?”
Plus there’s more from the forgetful Huddo in his weekly Plane Tales segment, and every match discussed.

The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 11

WHICH team had more to be pleased with coming away from the St Kilda-Melbourne clash? As both sides slugged out a beauty on Sunday, the SuperFooty panel ran the rule over the Round 11 clash.
Melbourne coach Paul Roos once discussed the worst 47 seconds in football, but the boys think Sunday’s final 41 seconds at Etihad Stadium was almost as bad.
How did the Dees blow it? The boys discuss, with Mick believing the ‘cheats never prosper’ theory may have something to do with it.
As Collingwood cemented its place in the top four we analyse the upside to the Pies, but also say proceed with caution ahead of their telling month ahead.
Essendon is in trouble after another big loss. The crew thinks the club wouldn’t mind their time over on a few decisions in our weekly Be Kind, Rewind segment, while cracks are starting to appear at the club as coach James Hird tries to retain support from loyal fans.
“There’s a stench coming out of Essendon, and it almost reminds me of that smell out of Carlton eight weeks ago.”
North Melbourne have been a bit of Jekyll and Hyde this year, but someone simply isn’t a fan of the Kangas.
“They conned us last year ... absolute con job. They’re not top-four material, they’re miles off that.”
Meanwhile, the boys don’t agree on the game’s no.1 player. Who would you choose first if every AFL star was lined up in the schoolyard? Mick is a little left of centre with his selection.
Plus a wrap of all the on-field action, the third-man up rule discussed, Huddo says today’s footy is simply getting too hard for the average fan to understand and a heap more.

The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 10

CHRIS Judd's retirement was the talking point in this week's SuperFooty podcast.

Huddo is joined by Jon Anderson and Jon Ralph as we reflect on the career of the dual Brownlow medallist.

Ando shares a story of watching a schoolboy Judd tearing it up for Caulfield Grammar while Jon Ralph, who was at Tuesday morning's press conference, believes there may be greater things in store for the former West Coast and Carlton legend now he's hung up his boots.

Also, the boys take a look at the Blues post-Juddy - the lack of leadership and the question of whether Carlton has bottomed out.

"Cripps will be captain of Carlton, I'll make a prediction now, within two years," one podcast member says.

In the second segment we take a look around the AFL.

Richmond's win on Friday night had plenty of talking points - from the "niggly" Tigers to the Freo losing a man Ando believes may be their "most important" player.

And we ask Huddo about how hard it can be to commentate certain teams and players.

"It's very hard not to talk about Nat Fyfe when you're calling," Huddo admits.

Another panel member had his say on the Freo-Richmond callers.

"I just think Basil lost his way on Friday night."

The Pies are fourth on the table but are they a false top-four team - having beaten the bottom four teams on the table?

Plus Ralphy expands on the 'Boring Bombers' and more on this week's SuperFooty podcast.
