#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! All that and more in this episode!

#124 - AFL Finals Week 2 Wrapped + Reddit Extra  

Week two of the finals reveals our four premiership contenders who will fight for the cup. Only 2 games this round saw the Hawks finally lose all finals as the Doggies ran amok on the MCG, while Sydney look to cement a true rivalry with GWS by handling the Adelaide Crows in dominant fashion to set up a Grand Final or bust game with tGeelong. 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! All that and more in this episode!

#123 - AFL Finals Week 1 Wrapped  

The first round of the AFL finals is done, with each game raising more questions than answers its opened the race for the flag. West Coast played like they have a second chance next week, while the Bulldogs show how they can turn up the heat when it matters. Hawthorn and Geelong knock heads once again with a cracker of a game with Isaac Smith giving the Cats a week off with a miss after the siren. GWS give a collective don't argue to their cross town and now legit rivals, with a dominant display that made everyone stop and notice, including the Sydney midfield. Adelaide were a masterful display of hunting in packs to send off a shambolic Kangaroos team. We also preview the next round of games, Josh tells you what nobody knows about the NRL finals and we explain why Richmond are the North Korea of the AFL. All that in this episode!

Episode # 122 - AFL Round 24 BYE Wrapped  

So every team had a bye, but that doesn't mean there wasn't plenty that happened and plenty to talk about. It's all in here, and it's all good!

#121 - AFL Round 23 Wrapped  

It's a day late, but we're glad we waited because Monday was way more interesting than Saturday and Sunday combined! We go through the guts of the weekend and set aside the bullsheisse. What mattered and what didnt gets sorted, plus we go through our own All Australian team except for Josh, because he hates Australia. We also go through our pre season ladder prediction and crown a new champion! We also look at who was lucky to be in the AA squad, and who was lucky to miss out, some mad Monday and plenty more to talk about all in this episode!

#120 - AFL Round 22 Wrapped  

Round 22 is done and dusted and with one round remaining it's all about sticking the elbows out and protecting your finals spot. The Crows get Port in another showdown, while Sloane takes a rest for resting his fist against Brad Eberts face, another Bulldog goes down, The Eagles fly up, GWS get bored of disposals, North hang on to finals by the skin of their teeth, and there are plenty of trade rumours to whet the appetite of the teams who arent playing finals. Plus our highlight of the week and predictions for the next round, and a whole lot more all in this episode!

#119 - AFL Round 21 Wrapped  

Round 21 is over, and may we be the first to welcome back exciting football. Maybe not the most skilled in most cases but hey, ya take what you can get. Nic Nat paddywacked GWS all the way back to the East coast, Treloar almost beats the Bulldogs, with coming away injury free probably the most important result in that game. Again Brisbane play fececal (that would be the contraction of sheisse and farcical) for most of the season then ensure their coach gets fired by playing one good game, showing they do have skill and talent, so must be the coach. I'm sure Leppa and Vossy will laugh about it. Or perform a hostile takeover of the Brisbane Board. Eddie may have claimed the rights to every forward pocket around the country, but Buddy lets it be known that the rest of the forward line is his with an emphatic display at Etihad. Essendon get a win they need but don't particularly want, while Adelaide happily kick the sheisse out of a shambolic Fremantle. Oh yeah we've analysed the stats and poured through the qualitative data, and we can tell you exactly how fececal Richmond's 4th quarter was, and some things that aren't even quite that as dense in fecal matter. All that and our 2 cents on next week in this episode!

#118 - AFL Really Round 20 Wrapped  

Ok, this one is really round 20, with me mistakenly getting ahead of myself last round. The finals spots are realistically set, that didnt stop the bottom 8 from having a crack on the weekend so we go through the round to see who's tryin and who's dyin.

#117 - AFL Round 20 Wrapped  

Round 20 is in the books and while most teams finals hopes are in the rearview mirror there's still plenty of jostling for home finals to be made. We go through the fallout of this weeks games, what it means for the finals draw as well as our highlights of the round. All that and more in this episode!

#116 - AFL Round 17 Wrapped  

Round 17 brought out some tight contests as well as some head scratchers. Spotless employees have lodged a formal complaint against channel 7 rgarding the excessive amount of ectoplasm left in the commentary booth after Cyril's game winning goal, while spotless staff outnumbered the paying public at the Lions/GWS game. Freo and Geelong ended up closer than it ought to be while some dudes fought over a sash at the G. Finals spots appear to be set, but that didn't stop North trying to prove that wrong with a lacklustre effort over Port, while the Power set themselves up to take on the Tigers for ninth. The Saints were up and running again while the Bulldogs win took a toll with a shoulder injury to Jake Stringer. Its heating up leading into the finals and we go through all the results as well as a look at the upcoming games. All that in this episode!

#115 - AFL Round 16 Wrapped  

Round 16 is in the rearview mirror, meaning we're just under a third of the season to go. It seems the barriers are full with little chance of a late scratching, and we go through the form of each teams game and what they hope to get out of the rest of the season. The jumper punch was back in the news, and we've got the solution. Or maybe we're still jacked from UFC200, i dunno. Finals are close, or draft time if you're in the bottom 8 and things are beginning to take shape for September, we got our highlights of the round and more in this episode!

#114 - AFL Round 15 Wrapped FIXED  

The last of the bye rounds means the sprint to the finals is on. Losses get forgiven as tapering off for a final assault on September, and we put the teams under the microscope to see who will get their nose across the line, with Jake Carlisle leading the race. Essendon once again did rock up and did participate in a game of football. S'about all you can really say on that front. Port remind Richmond why they're not playing finals, with a clinic on sharking taps and centre clearances akin to their previous finals demolition of the Tiges. Gold Coast put on a performance that makes you both happy and frustrated, with the Saints fans just being frustrated. Game of the round was definitely Sydney versus the Bulldogs, adding more chaos to the top 8 as the jockeying for home finals and just finals at all taking place. Carlton versus Collingwood was a lot like the election held that day, unfortunately someone had to win and the general public wanted neither. Unlike the election though, someone did win. Melbourne put in a fighting performance against an on point Crows, and does this mean we can pencil in the Crows for premiership favourites. We hate adding fuel to any S.A hype, but it's getting hard to ignore. We also discuss the legitimacy of the bye rounds, our highlights of the week and plenty more in this episode!

#113 - Gambling Stories Part 3  

It's time once again to pull up a seat at the felt, tell some stories and drag the occasional pot as we go through some more gambling stories. Joined once again by the Guv Degenerate Donk Dunc once again we go through stories earned from our time spent at the tables, and some from off the felt. From how to deal with contract killers, accidental waitress hookers, $26k dinners, why you shouldn't buy a BMW when you have a jet, renting porn in video stores, Liverpool Champions League adventures, public flashers and propositions, how it feels to lose $600k hands of baccarat to blackjack. Yep, we cover all that and more in this episode!

#112 - AFL Round 12 Wrapped  

Alright it's time once again to go through the weekend action of the AFL. The last round before the bye period kicks in saw some teams and players hit holiday mode early. We mention that Hawthorn played Essendon, but not a whole lot else happened in that game, while Port and the Western Bulldogs put on a display of hard fought, hard running and heartbreaking footy. We loved it. Brisbane and Freo had a good opening quarter, while another percentage boosting win for Freo sees their plan of gaining absolutely nothing from this season come to fruition. Herding sheep back home on the family property is already paying dividends for Patty Dangerfield, as he seemed to freely run around the pack as he pleased. Meanwhile West Coast are still without a win against the top 8 as a fired up Adelaide put the Eagles away over in W.A. St Kilda put the breaks back on the Carlton hype train as Dusty Martin helps the Tigers scrape through for a win against Gold Coast. If there were any remaining doubts against GWS then surely they were torched as they made light work out of the Swans, played in front of a sold out crowd. One crowd member picked up 100k at three quarter time, lets just hope he made it out of Western Sydney with it all in his pocket. And finally from what we hear from our correspondents in the Palace, the Queen was stoked that her Dee's got a win over the Pies for her birthday. All that and some more in this episode!

#111 - UFC 199 Wrapped  

It been a little while since we covered the UFC, but to be honest there wasn't a whole lot going on except Conor. We've still been keeping our finger on the pulse though as UFC builds up to its much hyped UFC 200 and beyond. This event saw a whole lot of fallout, from mixing up divisions, choking up divisions, and stacking up divisions. Announcements to make your balls tingle in excitement, or in fear if you're a journalist making the announcement. Oh yeah, and some hardworking Pommy lad shocked the world and made his dreams come true. We go through it all in this episode!

#110 - AFL Round 11 Wrapped  

Round 11 in the books sees the end of 9 game rounds for a few weeks, with some teams needing an undeserved spell. We go through all the games and news from the weekend that was a wet one for just about everyone. The Tigers looked scared of the rain, scared of Tasmania and scared of the Kangaroos and North give themselves a percentage top up in a one sided affair. Hawks and Melbourne was a much closer contest than it should have been, turns out the Dees are pretty accurate from the goal square though. Unfortunately we have to heap the praise on Carlton as they continue to go from strength to strength while the true contenders squared off down in Geelong. Port add their name to the late runners for finals spots with a convincing win over the Pies as West Coast are still yet to register a win against a top 8 side. We also have our highlights of the week as well as a look at next round, and a little bit more all in this episode!

#109 - AFL Round 10 Wrapped  

Round 10 sees us celebrate our indigenous heritage with indigenous round. We saw North finally notch up a loss, while the hot wind of Ross Lyon filled the Freo sails for a quarter, until they remembered they have dropped anchor at the bottom in the hopes of good draftees. The Lions showed a bit of grit while we watched White Cliffs play Alice Springs in a local A Grade game or something. Dreamtime at the G told the story of two struggling teams that fought hard and....I don't know how it ended because like everyone else I switched to GWS versus Crows. Carlton aren't putting up with any winter Blues as they out hussle Geelong, Collingwood prove once again they have one of the most talented injury lists in the AFL, and the Eagles and the Suns apparently played a game. We have our highlights and insights of the round, and some other stuff all in this episode!

#108 - AFL Round 9 Wrapped  

Round 9 is in the books and that means it's time for us to go through the winners and losers, the heroes and villains, the fair and the unfair and even a bit of praise for Collingwood. We go through the best events of the weekend, see what the results mean for each team and their respective finals/draft ambitions, the standout players and plays. No update on the Richmond bandwagon this weekend though, as we're sure the bandwagon has let you know how it's going already. All that and more in this episode!
