The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 15
HAWTHORN the team to beat, Freo “shot”, North Melbourne’s landmark win, Jamie Elliott’s poor body language and massive respect shown for Phil Walsh - the footy wasn’t that thrilling in Round 15 but the boys covered a heap in this week’s SuperFooty Podcast.
After an ominous display in Tassie on Sunday, Sammy - as he did in 2014 - is back to writing off Freo.
“I think Fremantle are shot,” he proclaims.
“It just shows that Hawthorn, if there was any slim, sliver of doubt, are absolutely the team to beat.” Few could argue.
North Melbourne and coach Brad Scott were praised for some tough selection choices, while Cats fans Jon Anderson and Anthony Hudson run their rule over their team.
“I think it’s a really challenging period coming up for Chris Scott.”
The Pies have lost three on the trot but while Ando likes where they’re going, what didn’t he like from Jamie Elliott on Friday night? Is Jamie getting a bit of ‘me, me, me’?
The Adelaide sides were praised for their displays and tributes to Phil Walsh in what was another enormously challenging weekend, especially for the Crows. The crowd also received a big tick from our panel.
“There aren’t many more hostile environments than Subiaco when West Coast are playing and you could have heard a pin drop.”
Meanwhile, the Bombers returned to the winner’s list but coach James Hird used fighting words on Sunday. That left Huddo scratching his head.
“I’m surprised, I would have thought he would have been better just to shut up, to be honest,” Huddo said.
“I don’t really understand what he’s trying to achieve by saying sort of half things ... if he wants to keep his job he’s got to be thinking ‘what’s the best for my footy club at the moment?’ and this is not the best for his footy club.”
Every match gets a mention, so while Mick Warner dons the sunscreen and prepares for the Lord’s Test match, tune into this week’s SuperFooty podcast ...
