Not only is Ian Hill not a brother of the other Hill's but he also plays for GWS not GC :tongueout:

One future topic of like to hear discussed for a Media Watch segment is the time Fine called for the sacking of Scott Watters and then he was sacked weeks later.

Would be interesting to hear what made him do such a public call and whether he had any regrets about it until Waters was sacked in bizarre circumstances.

Have started listening the last 3 rounds

Enjoy most of it , and thats ok. I dont have to agree with it all but its a good chat about football. The recall is amazing at times. I mean I can remember moments but not rounds or quarters.

Enjoyed the analysis on the AFC. I think there are deeper issues hiding bigger problems at Adelaide. Too many hangers on. Too many in sinecures to rock the boat. Dont get me wrong the people there want the best but I dont think they are willing to choose the harder path to get there.

Finey has mentioned Brisbane playing with a freedom of thought. I think that is a symptom of a coach recognising there are too many instructions to the players that they are filled with anxiety so they also choose the easiest option rather than the best. Thats more a pointer to lower scores

Like Rohan I am also a grumpy old man ;) and I long for the days of a contested mark all down the ground.

Keep up the good work , and if you think up another topic to rap about



Yeah just dont

As soon as KB left SEN my first thought was the take from the boys and it didn't disappoint! Love getting the thoughts on the Hutchy/croc media takeover of SEN! KBs morning program was great listening! His regular guests made the show. Patrick Smith, Greg "Venon" Dennem, Johnny Ralph ,Richo off to races the list goes on. As soon as He went to afternoons his show become more of a comedy act with Turfy while a couple hours a week was funny 5 days a week was a bIt much!

"But whatever you do never ever forget Finey have a great day in sport im KB"

I could at a stretch understand Fine going for a major upset like the GC winning but after the chairman was publicly begging for priority picks & are in tank mindset there was literally zero chance they were going to win. A silly call.

Maybe it was their brilliant head to head record against the crows that swayed him.

Great show getting better all the time.
Got a suggestion, Rohan:
Why not introduce an email listener question (or three) of the week? I’m sure many footy fans would love to pick your’s and Finey’s brains for an honest opinion on media, state of game etc.
It would also increase sense of audience being part of the show, without having to endure nuffy callers like on certain talkback stations.
Best questioner could get an Andrew’s Burger or maybe a new extension on their home.

Hate to nitpick but Finey does this more often than is acceptable; mentioned GWS were too top heavy against Richmond with Cameron, Himmelberg and Finlayson up forward. Finlayson didn't play, he was dropped. He has great footy knowledge and I love the way he talks about the game but to do this more than a few times is unprofessional.
