Hi guys, (particularly TheExtractorFactor and TP86), apologies, but our producer has been away and only returned this morning. Just FYI, we're back to two eps. per week now, and we're looking to record the midweek one Wednesday mornings and the review ep Sunday nights. Unless there's unforseen circumstances, that WILL be the timetable from now on, so lock it in.

Anyway, we think (just quietly) today's ep is one of the best we've done. We're talking about the medical substitute, annoying media, we wrap up Round 7 of AFLW, "Previews With Punch" is back with a bang, and "Fantastic Footy Flashbacks" is a ripper! Hope you enjoy it.

Cheers,
Rohan

I think the Suns are a good shot at finals. If Rowell is able to recover from his injury he could be such a massive player for you guys, and watching Making their Mark has made me very bullish on the Suns. Reckon you're in a good spot.

I enjoyed the latest episode and what really stood out for me was in the flashback segment, and how good the commentary was in the 1982(?) Ess V Haw game compared to the farcical clown show of the 2004 GF. I'd compare the 80's game commentary to a kind of professional British version, to the 2004 variety of an American wrestling match.

After watching Rich V Carlton tonight I see nothing has changed. BT even rolled out a 'Have you ever seen anything like it' for a pretty standard play.

One could be forgiven thinking that there really aren't any commentators actually calling the play, yet instead there's someone in a box somewhere pushing a keyboard with pre-loaded phrases.. Like a FIFA game.

He has a life-size cardboard cut-out of Jimmy. No, mangled pronunciation aside, it's Nik Spartels of West Point Properties.
Thanks. While I've got ya, can you please ask Finey and Mannix to get back into the studio with Kevin for Ruck 'n' Roll? It's fa'rkin hard work listening to them on crappy phone lines for an hour, especially Finey, who doesn't have the clearest voice. :tongueoutv1::thumbsu:

Finey saying it was a tough break for North last week finding out Corr would be out for a while; he played and was one of their best...

Hi Big Footy folk,

The big Easter episode is up now. Our Round 3 Preview discusses every game in detail. We talk injuries and impact on the Bombers & Blues, and "Fantastic Footy Flashbacks" strolls down memory lane to a great old grand final and an infamous day at the Lake Oval. Who needs Easter eggs when you've got this to munch on! Hope you like it.

Cheers,
Rohan

Great episode Rohan, enjoyed your flashback to the 1973 Grand Final. You are one of the few Victorian media commentators who both knows and gives SANFL and WAFL Footy their due, if only more had your wider outlook on the game.

It seemed to be lost on Fagan and Buckley, Bevo might have got it, he's a Saints surfer from way back.

Appreciate the mini Swans lovefest happening right now, exciting times for the club.

It's worth noting that the current performances are largely built from our drafting in the past few years and this is now the 4th year we have had Simon Dalrymple as our recruiting manager, who was obviously largely responsible for building a young premiership-winning list for the Doggies before he jumped ship. He looks to be doing again here, and is proving he should be considered one of the best in the business if anyone had forgotten.

Also, Don Pyke joining as one of our senior assistant coaches this season is apparently one of the biggest reasons for our more attacking gamestyle, he deserves some big credit to go with the praise that Horse is getting.
