Round 8 review
CARLTON “infinitely better” under Brendon Bolton, oh the life of a Tigers fan and did the Bombers actually beat North Melbourne?
Our supercharged SuperFooty podcast panel is back after a big Round 8 to discuss all the action, including the Tigers’ thrilling win (so yes, that means Mick Warner has returned!) and Carlton’s continued rise.
Geelong’s win over the Crows means it’s high fives all round on the panel, and the boys are up and about.
But not all’s peachy, with footy in Queensland “toxic”, Lions coach Justin Leppitsch really under the pump and Mick believing the AFL needs to take responsibility for the Gold Coast’s current struggles.
Sam Edmund seemed a little bemused by the reaction of Bombers fans after their loss to the Kangas — a team that continues to fly under the radar despite a 8-0 start to the season.
“North just keep winning and no-one keeps talking about them.”
Plus the boys bring up the ‘T’ word with Fremantle (are they tanking?), Sammy reckons we could be on track for a rematch of 2008 and Mick has seen this year’s Rising Star winner ... who’s lucky to be alive.
It’s all covered in a big Round 8 SuperFooty podcast.
