Barrett doesn't like it coming back. I admire Hodge for getting out of his comfort zone and moving away from the football heartland.
Just came on to post this. Onya Luke. Gives him both barrels.

Seems to me that "click bait" Barrett is the most detested journo in the industry. He can give it out but is pathetically thin skinned at anything coming back and then turns nasty and vindictive. He has history now with Leppa and Bevo and Hodge and Hodge will not take a step back for the jerk. It is time that someone put him back in his box!

I didn’t realise Barrett was up in Brisbane for a few years; was it covering AFL? If so, chances are he was put in his box a few times and has a chip on his shoulder about the Lions as a result; would explain a lot.

I have vague memories that he did cover the AFL for the Courier Mail at some point but I might be misremembering.

I also don't agree with players being interviewed during a game, before and after is enough imo, BUT this bloke goes way to far. Once again, I hope Hodgey has a go back at him, some of the things said in that article is both spiteful and malicious..he really is a piece of works.

..also the club needs to re-think having our boys interviewed, I feel pretty sure Hodgey would've told Abbey Holmes to rack off when he was laying on his stomach getting attended to had it been up to him, but apparently he was asked to do it. Wrong imo, was very intrusive.

I feel the same way for any players from other teams too, a lot of the time these in game interviews or miked up to hear what's happening during play, just makes me squirm. Time to tell the tv channels enough is enough.

The Saturday Stretch with Brad Johnson and Dermott Brereton is the pick of the review footy shows for mine and tonight's summary of our game was no exception with a really thorough analysis. Makes Sunday's Gameday and The Sunday Footy Show look really amateurish, which they are.

Hopefully the club will upload the lengthy interview of Mitch Robinson being interviewed by Lynch and Mooney after the game and the footage of him receiving the Marcus Ashcroft Medal, but it was a cracking interview.

Is that online?

Do you mean Fox Footy's Saturday Stretch program? No, channel 504 on Fox.

As for the segment involving the Lions and Mitch Robinson, I couldn't find it online late last night, so hopefully the club puts up the 3-4 minute interview with Mitch.

Haha good old Bev having a whinge at the umpires for not giving his forward Naughton more free kicks.

Well if you hadn't missed 6+ easy shots on goal, you wouldn't be saying that.

Incredible hypocrisy from the club that has benefited the most from free kicks.

Is there a bigger pack of whingers than the Bulldogs?

How typical; the Sunday Footy Show, which goes for two hours, didn't even bother reviewing our game.

And they call it a footy show.:rolleyes:

Amazes me that there isn't a decent footy program that reviews all games at the conclusion of the round (on a Sunday night) and yet we're left with the Sunday Footy Show and Gameday that only have to really review 6-7 games and then Bounce, which is more variety show than anything resembling a footy show.

They could also consider playing their unbelievably talented 19 year old key defender as a key defender too. Easton Wood has been pretty average this year. and they don't have anyone in defence who can take talls.

There was a pretty unintentionally funny thread a few weeks ago comparing the Boyd trade and the Buddy acquisition. Yeah Boyd helped win them a flag but he's played one good game and is eating up their salary cap.

I don't mind the Footyolgy Podcast. They go through each game at least.

Oh it's on Fox? Hopefully it's on Foxtel Now and I can check it out.

In general the standard of journalistic coverage of our great game is ordinary, by and large a bunch of sycophantic boys club buffoons trying to be THE story and promoting/showcasing their "brand/personality".

Nine things we learned (Round 6)

https://www.afl.com.au/news/2019-04-28/nine-things-we-learned-from-round-six

9. Brisbane's recruiters got it spot on
While the Lions have largely gone about their rebuild by picking up high-end talent through the national draft – think McCluggage, Rayner, Berry and Witherden –the club's recruiting team deserves a huge pat on the back for adding the perfect blend of mature talent. In Saturday's win over Gold Coast, arguably the four best players on the ground have all previously played elsewhere. Mitch Robinson continued a stellar start to 2019 by winning the Marcus Ashcroft Medal, but it could have easily gone to either Lachie Neale or Jarryd Lyons for their influential roles. Then there was Charlie Cameron, down the past two weeks but back to his best with 21 disposals and two goals. Whether it was picking up players other clubs didn't want in Robinson and Lyons or eyeing off players they thought would fit the club's trajectory like Neale and Cameron, the Lions have done a fantastic job in identifying players that could help their climb. And they're probably not done yet. - Michael Whiting
