The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 20
IT'S been another huge week in footy and the SuperFooty Podcast has it all covered.
With James Hird squarely in the headlights again, Mick thinks it's just a matter of time - and money - before Essendon and Hird part ways.
Following revelations of Essendon players continuing to struggle with the looming WADA appeal, Mick says things are at an all-time low for the Bombers.
"I couldn't imagine a lower place for a club in the history of the game, actually ... you know how Roosy says his players are mentally scarred from, whatever they were, the tanking years? What about this group at Essendon? They must be torched permanently because they've been through a lot more than that Melbourne team."
The Western Derby showed West Coast are a legitimate threat this season but was the result a good thing for Fremantle?
The boys discuss if Freo actually wanted to win, and all the possible scenarios for the top four after the weekend results.
Is Freo now in danger of missing the top two and can the Bulldogs hang tough and make the top four?
After a few teams copped hammerings at the weekend, the boys renewed their calls for a shorter season, calling on a 17-round season and issues the AFL faced with the current fixture.
"It's always been a joke ... it's the biggest problem for the AFL, their biggest bugbear," Ando said.
The MRP was kept busy after several incidents and the boys dissect the high-profile incidents, saying the damage caused should not have an impact on any punishment handed out by the MRP.
Plus the boys take a look at the coaching candidates at Carlton, the flying Crows, Brisbane's possible draft picks, the struggling Dees and the unconvincing Kangas.
