Episode #132 – Australia Day Podcast

It’s Australia Day, so we do a rare day time podcast. Talking a little UFC, how the Women’s AFL league could be promoted, and why the new Richmond mascot should be Scooby Doo.

Come to think of it, we didn’t discuss Australia Day at all, which we had actually planned to do. Oh well, hopefully get another crack on May 8th.

 

Episode #127 – Off season sports talk

AFL off season is an anxiety inducing time. Not much happens between now and draft, but that hasn’t stopped us from having a chat about the scant AFL news available, the cricket, UFC, shit we even spent 2 minutes laughing at America.

Grab a beer and give an ear, we got you covered for the Friday afternoon!

Episode #126 – AFL Fixture Release + Off Season Talk

Well the off-season is well under way, we’ve had a trade period that produced more redundancies than the auto industry, a fixture that may actually make sense, and Jobe still has a Brownlow around his neck.

I don’t know about you, but I’m so jacked up on the hopes of the Tigers fans that I’m ready for Carlton tomorrow. I thought about going down Lygon street and laying a few bumps to stoke the fire, but I don’t much like being stabbed, so we pumped out another podcast instead!

We go through the fixture release, our failed draft podcast, how we’re killing time in the offseason, our plans for upcoming podcasts and plenty more in this episode!

 

Episode #125 – AFL Finals Week 3 Wrapped

Our Grand Finalists for 2016 have been decided, and what a round it was. Geelong look helpless against a ferocious Sydney, with the pressure forcing the Cats into a style of play that lead straight to the gallows.
GWS rip Sydney off of a rivalry that they can genuinely call their own, while the Bulldogs show why they’ve gone from underdogs to wonderdogs (just give me the job now Herald Sun) with the best performance of their season against GWS. A crowd of 20,000 headed to the Western Suburbs to take on the other Western Suburbs, and it was a gang fight for the ages.
We go through all the events, our highlights of the round, and heath has got his hands on the entrance themes for both teams in the Granny!

With not a whole lot else happening besides those two games, we fill you in on the biggest story you don’t know about (we’re guessing Jai Bednall already had his stories written for the week) with the r/AFL subreddit falling under attack from our imperialist dictators, those Seppos on r/Sports. We have some guests ring in to fill us in on what happened, and also set a plan to launch an all out attack during cricket season. WE NEED YOU to join us!
