The SuperFooty Podcast - Round 21
IS THIS the year a team comes from outside the top four to snatch the AFL premiership?
The boys discuss the top eight in this week's podcast and Ando is bullish about the bottom half of the eight, believing it's the best qualified group of challengers he can recall in a long while.
"There's not a weak side, there."
All the weekend matches get a going over in this week's podcast, including North Melbourne whose credentials grew after their come-from-behind win over Fremantle.
But can either team do any damage when the business end of the year gets under way?
There's no doubting West Coast, however, who despite an undermanned backline continues to be an "incredible story".
Not enjoying as good a time is Collingwood, whose lack of effort late against Richmond was "alarming", while skill errors also hurt the Pies.
And Huddo says someone who used to be at the club has given him an insight as to what the problem may be.
Stevie J's up-and-down night against St Kilda was put under the microscope with the boys discussing whether it will impact his chances of staying on at the Cats next season.
Carlton towelled Melbourne, with the Demons' woes drawing criticism from Mick, and the panel questioning whether Roosy has taken the club forward.
"What hasn't helped is that Luke Beveridge has gone into the Bulldogs and turned them around, that Alan Richardson has gone into St Kilda ... it's just a methodical growth pattern that we're seeing," Huddo said.
Essendon didn't get the points against Gold Coast but interim coach Matthew Egan impressed and is a name to remmeber for the future, according to Ando.
Plus a clip for "arrogant" Hawks fans - and Hodgey - plenty of interest in Matthew Leuenberger, Huddo loves the long handball and will 'SOS' call on former club at trade time?
