The SuperFooty Podcast - Semi Finals (2015)
NORTH Melbourne is through to the preliminary finals but they're struggling to win fans on this week's SuperFooty Podcast.
The Kangas and Hawks won their way through in semi-final week and won in contrasting styles. The boys on the podcast are big believers in Hawthorn, but not yet convinced on the Kangas.
"I don't think they were overly impressive in winning ... good on them for doing it, I don't mean to be negative towards them, but I don't think they were super." host Anthony Hudson said.
"I thought unimpressive, actually," Jon Anderson said.
Sydney ran out of manpower as September wore on, but their on-field display took on sidenote as Adam Goodes' retirement was the main talking point from their finals exit at the weekend.
And the boys agreed it was a shame it seemed the champ felt the "need to bow out with no fanfare".
Hawthorn's "savage" return to form may have surprised some who thought they wmight have been vulnerable against the Crows, but Huddo says a former member of the brown and gold army had convinced him a Hawks storm was coming by the time the first bounce arrived on Friday night.
And Sammy tells of the roasting each player had received from Clarko following the qualifying final loss to West Coast.
For Adelaide, they were simply blown off the park and must now lick their wounds and look to building for 2016 - and might have to do so without Patrick Dangerfield.
The coaching appointment will also be made in coming weeks - "it seems more and more conventional wisdom now that John Worsfold is going to choose Essendon" - and Ando has his tip should the Crows overlook interim boss Scott Camporeale.
The panel agree whoever takes over the Crows takes over a "good list" but it will be a different list minus Dangerfield.
Ando broke the story on Saturday that the star Crow is poised to choose Geelong.
But how does it happen? A bit of water has got to go under the bridge just yet, but the boys discuss how the Cats might land their man.
Plus Ando on the "brutally honest" Paul Chapman, Huddo on Monopoly (yes, you read that right!) and who should go hard for Harley Bennell.
