Hi all,

I had a great, lengthy chat with Rohan Connolly (works for SEN, Marngrook footy show and footyology) last night to discuss a heap of different footy issues.

I know this podcast isn't specifically richmond related (although we did get spoken about) but i also know there are a lot of people on this board who just love the game of footy in general and a few of you might find this podcast really interesting.

He was really detailed with his answers, and while the podcast does go for a lot longer than usual, i felt totally engaged the whole time. he loves his footy and is very passionate about it, easy to relate to.

Topics we covered:
-The MRO system
-Players touching umpires
-The state of the game (congestion)
-Goal review system
-The expansion clubs and if they should have used Tasmania first
-Was Richmond's 2017 flag a case of right plan, right, place right time, or something more?
-Do West Coast have the right set up this year to go all the way?
-Bolters and Sliders so far?
-AFLW and it's progression
-Essendon drug saga
-Grand Final time slot
-The advantage MCG tenant clubs have over interstate clubs
-Marvel Stadium
-The media in general

Well done.

I've always liked Rohan. One of the few media people I have time for. Don't always agree with every opinion he has but what I like about him is he isn't afraid to challenge the AFL or be critical of them on a lot of subjects that other media mavens wouldn't dare touch for fear of falling on the outside of the AFL.

Has reasonable music taste as well e.g. Rage Against the Machine.

Thanks!

Hopefully one of them will give me a gig at some point :D:p
That could be nice but farkem ... you could get yourself set up in a professionally-produced podcast first. Get advertisers. You're building up your contacts list. Think about it.
Then see what happens when the media offers come in. Get Ralph Carr to manage you.:)

unfortunately i wouldnt know where to start to try and set up a professionally produced podcast.

I had a look at that Podcast One website a little while ago, you basically have to pitch your idea to them and they pick and chose what they take on board. unfortunately for me there is already a lot of AFL based podcasts and Howie already does interviews with past players so I'm just not sure what the angle or opening would be to get into given a lot of people already have similiar podccasts already :(

Oh, well, just take the $100k you'll get offered by the media and leave it at that.

Great job Michaels .... like his late brother Steve, Rohan is a ripping bloke.
Always value his opinions, will look forward with much interest, especially his thoughts on the media (as most media people have thoughts on the current landscape that would surprise most people).
