#148 - AFL Round 13 Wrapped  

In this episode we meander through the last of the bye rounds as week 13 of the AFL season comes to an end. West Coast brought the Cats back down to Earth with a comprehensive win in the west, at Etihad North and the Saints played a game of football, a very turdy game of football though. Sydney and Richmond built up their rivalry with another thriller at the MCG, while Port put the sword to a very spirited Brisbane Lions at Adelaide oval. Gold Coast almost snuck a win against Carlton with Gibbs having a blinder, and Melbourne gave the Bulldogs a lesson on the Sunday. We go through our highlights of the week, Brenton remembers his beer of the week, and we send out a special request for help from our Tigers fans as we're looking to get a match ball used in the 1980 Grand Final authenticated. If you can help out, please get in touch! All that and more in this episode!

#147 - AFL Round 12 Wrapped  

We're just about done with the bye rounds, and for a weekend of pretty poor quality footy, each game was surprisingly entertaining in its own right! We explain why in this episode! Sydney take a W over the under performing Bulldogs in a wet SCG round opener, as Adelaide go through the motions against a spirited St Kilda side. Gold Coast close out a game against the Hawks at the MCG with a great display of grit and determination, in lieu of skill. Brisbane Lions looked re-energised on the back of resigning Scache, with a dominant display of inside footy against a very lack-luster Fremantle. Essendon give Port a right rogering to keep the top 8 spots alive for all, as Carlton provide an upset of the season so far with a thrilling victory over a greedy GWS. Melbourne and Collingwood put on another spectacular marque match With a gritty Queens birthday clash that rounded out a hard fought 5 days of footy. Plus we go through our highlights of the round, a preview of next round and Josh attempts statistics. All that and more in this episode!

#146 - AFL Round 11 Wrapped  

In our latest AFL Wrapped podcast we go through the big wins and the soft losses that made up round 11 of the AFL season. Hawthorn get a demoralising thrashing, with the scoreboard really not doing justice to the slaughter at Adelaide Oval. Geelong throw their hat in the ring as it looks to be now a 3 way fight between themselves, GWS and Adelaide for finals glory, as Gold Coast show that they are above tanking for picks, West Coast? Not so much... GWS get the honors over a nearly flawless Essendon, but sometimes doing your best just isn't enough. North Melbourne do their best to raise the price on Dusty, with an adventurous overbidding of their own price, while Collingwood take the points over Freo at a huge cost. We go through our highlights of the week, a preview of next week and a whole lot more all in this episode!

#145 - AFL Round 10 Wrapped  

It's time for us to wrap up round 10 of the AFL season, with a few close games that made the rather awful quality of football palatable. It's indigenous round which always adds another aspect of rivalry and excitement, with the Thursday night kick off between the Dogs and Port being and entertaining and controversial match. In the masters league we saw old foes Sydney and Hawthorn do battle, with the decline of both teams keeping this game interesting, with the Bulldogs and Saints game resembling end to end kicks at lunch time. Gold Coast had the accuracy to give Melbourne a scare for a half, while dreamtime at the G provided an entertaining contest. Adelaide gave Freo what they deserved, the Pies were happy with a win and continued form of their midfield while North made sure we kept interested in their match. GWS and West Coast gave us an entertaining finale to the round that was all about paying respect to our indigenous owners of this great land. We go through our highlights of the week, a preview of the next round and a whole lot more all in this episode!

#144 - AFL Round 9 Wrapped  

It is time once again to go through the latest round of AFL action, with something for everybody over the weekend. The first of the bye rounds ment Gold Coast could walk out of work Friday arvo without fear of the Monday morning blues, and the same could be said for Port fans if they had jobs. Geelong and the Bulldogs put on a show in front of the new Skilled Stadium stand, but did they get the naming of it right? Sydney find some form with a return trip to the docklands, while the Tigers put in a Titanic performance against GWS, crash and sinking despite the odds. Brisbane and Adelaide played a game, while Collingwood get one up by kicking the Hawks when they're down. Essendon turn it up against the Eagles while the same couldn't be said for the North Melbourne/Melbourne match. And Fremantle and Carlton did indeed play a game as well. As always we go through our highlights of the week, a preview of next round, all that and more in this episode!

#143 - AFL Round 8 Wrapped  

The competition continues to destroy tipping comps and even itself out with some big upsets and some ugly performances, so we go through the trash and the treasure of round 8! We make a case for North moving out to Doreen, Brenton proves he is king at Chinese whispers, and does anyone have any idea who will finish in the top 8 this year? We also go through our highlights of the week and preview the round to come, all that and more in this episode!

#142 - AFL Round 7 Wrapped  

Sorry about all the issues with the previous episode being late to iTunes - events beyond our control sadly. But I made some shocking calls in that episode (Like North won't get passed Adelaide's first quarter score!) so if you missed it then great! But here we are, back on track and timely again, giving you the good news on all that was round 7 of AFL footy.

#141 - AFL Round 6 Wrapped  

I've always said that it takes 6 rounds before the ladder actually makes sense, and we've got a clearer picture of it now. Are there really only 3 contenders for the flag this year? Are Sydney the best 0-6 team of all time? And can tanking when you have no first round draft pick be the way to win a flag in the VFL? All that and more here - and visit us on Facebook, buy a t-shirt!

#140 - AFL Round 5 Wrapped  

ANZAC Round got the respect it deserved, and plenty of gritty, hard nosed footy was on offer. Enjoyable round, you know save for the belting Port gave Carlton.

#139  -AFL Round 4 Wrapped  

Round 4 didn't really live up to expectations in terms of quality footy, but it did give us plenty to talk about. Joining us this week is human punching bag Ritchie, who's all worked up about the Tiger's 4-0 start to the season. We talk about that a lot, and also are the Swans the best 0-4 team ever, and who is going to stop a rampaging Adelaide?

#138 - Gambling Stories Part 4  

Since it's a long weekend, thought it was time to revisit some stories from the felt. Donk Dunc joins us once more, as we go through poker stories and how to catch casino cheats, and why/how dealers try to scam other dealers.

#137 - AFL Round 3 Wrapped  

So how was your tips this week? Yep, ours sucked too, as the upsets flowed. We have a look at the round that was and wonder what is in store for round 4.

#136 - AFL Round 2 Wrapped  

Round 2 is done and dusted and the ladder looks as if somebody dropped it and never bothered to put it in the right order. The Tigers get a little bit of revenge surviving a cock-eyed Collingwood to take out the Thursday night honours, while the Bulldogs outlast the Swans in the GF replay. Adelaide dominate the 'G, while the Saints struggle to close out 4 quarters of footy and North Melbourne show why they are the new Richmond. The young kids come out to play as Melbourne snatch a win from Carlton, and could Port Adelaide actually be true finals contenders? Plus our highlight of the week, a preview of next week and a lot more all in this episode!

#135 - AFL Round 1 Wrapped  

We're back for another season for AFL, and what an opening round it was. The only person happier than the Tigers faithful was Dusty's accountant, as he continues to drive up his value in a contract year. Collingwood put on a hearty performance but were outclassed, with no answer for Cloke's huge bag of 1 goal. Melbourne prove that they are the side to watch out for this year as they prove their point against an overwhelmed St Kilda, while Port go one better and beat the Swans at their own game, in their own house. Essendon get aboard the hype train as they march into the 'G and put the sword to the Hawks, while Brisbane and Gold Coast play out a thriller up North. Speaking of North, they prove the haters wrong by revealing their game plan of getting decent draft picks this year, while the Crows give a wake up call to make a claim as real premiership contenders with a huge percentage grab against GWS. The Cats pump the Dockers as the Dangerfield/Fyfe contest was anything but. We also have our highlights of the week, preview of the next round and a lot more all in this episode!
