David King gave us a massive wrap on SEN this morning-

The Lions have a game changer on their hands in Oscar McInerney.
The Lions are the best center bounce team in the league, Neale is a star.
The Lions are not coming...they are here.
The Lions are awesome to watch, they play like winners, they have trust in each other.
The Lions can score in many different ways.
We undersell Mitch Robinson, he is so brave.
Daniel Rich is having a fantastic year.
Eric Hipwood, is he the missing piece of the puzzle.

I heard that too, although on the bolded, not sure what the stats say, but I thought Port owned us at the centre bounces.

Like Kingy but he is very flavour of the month. Not to look a gift horse in the mouth though. Great calls on Rich and Robinson.

King was a douchebag when we were losing. Winning doesn’t change anything.

Real Age footy podcast claims that Jimmy Bartel was instrumental in getting Neale to Brisbane and Bartel in the podcast doesn’t deny it. Anyone heard that before? I know he was working with the club part time for a bit last year

Youngest in his senior game was given postitive feedback, even had a spectator after the match come up and tell him he thought he did a good job. Hopes to have another game this weekend and will find out tomorrow night.
The eldest umpired two U19 games (4x20 min quarters) went really well, if he's not appointed to a senior game this week, it will only be a matter of time before he is.
Oh and all the new rules apply but not the 6,6,6 and runners are allowed at any time.

Can someone please enlighten me why there is a Game of Thrones round in the AFL and other sports throughout the country?:huh:

As someone that has never watched the show, nor cares one iota about it and knows a lot of people that feel the same way; we're confused why some random TV show has its tentacles in Australian sport.

Coz it's showing on some Fox package this year and Fox is spending money to promote that package. And Gil likes getting money.

Same reason the Pokemon Thor Bulldogs play games at Marvel Stadium during Superhero Round. Here's an article about the Disneyification in particular.

It better be the last weekend in May so they can overuse "Winter is Coming".

Think its a Fox thing not an AFL thing but could be wrong.
