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.

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.”
