THE Blues came with “an appetite” while Collingwood is in no man’s land after Saturday's disappointing loss to their arch rival.
So where to now for Nathan Buckley and the Pies? It’s the main talking point in this week’s SuperFooty Podcast.
Sam Edmund says while injuries have played a part at the Westpac Centre, he’s not buying.
“You don’t lose to a side that was supposed to finish 18th this year and is in the early stages of a rebuild ... This is a side almost in decay somehow.”
Meanwhile, the coach’s position also comes up for debate ... can Bucks coach? The boys say it’s hard to tell.
“Right now the evidence is starting to become compelling that he’s struggling to get the message through to his players,” Jon Anderson says, while also pointing to the calibre of players to have left in recent seasons as “a worry” for the Pies.
The shot clock and finale to the North Melbourne-St Kilda caused plenty of debate, and the boys are split on their opinion of the countdown clock.
Etihad Stadium was the scene of plenty of drama at the weekend, but Eddie Betts didn’t have a big say in Saturday night’s contest — and former premiership coach Denis Pagan thinks he knows why.
Meanwhile, Sammy thinks we may have witnessed the birth of the AFL’s new great rivalry.
Geelong is the new flag favourite according to the bookies, but the boys aren’t yet convinced they’re the team to beat.
Again, we go through the premiership contenders, but Ando has some strong words for one team many think can seriously challenge. “They stink.” Who is he referring to?
Port Adelaide returned to the winner’s list, but have they turned the corner? Who’s more likely to turn the corner out of the Power and the improving demons? Can you trust either side?
Plus the Swans look ominous, especially with the big bloke up forward booting sausage rolls. Can Buddy top the ton?
It’s all covered in a big Round 7 SuperFooty podcast.
