Yeah Smith was good. 38 tackles in 4 finals is huge, that's almost 10 per final. Would have to be a record or close to it.

Yeah that was a good episode - Smith has a pretty remarkable story and seems a very honest & likeable interviewee. Hope life post footy goes well for him.

I liked Clay Smith. Would be a ripper bloke to have a couple of jars with.

There are so many great characters to be interviewed but would they tell the truth. That's why IMO Jacko was the best, he showed up false or biased sports reporting for what it is.
The truth?

Jacko made it into one big advert for whatever act he is doing on the circuit at the moment.

In doing so he hardly said anything except outlandish statements in an attempt to shock.

Having said that, I watched his episode twice so there was some entertainment to it

Agree with Denchy and Moore being on the dull side.

Don't really know why I said Jacko was the best in reality it was hard to watch. Great that he served Mike though.

Disagree. I was really uncomfortable watching it, didn't enjoy it, couldn't get through it.
I've watched it twice, the second time to see if I missed something. It is hard to believe there wasn't a lot of schtick behind it and that surely Mike was warned in advance about certain topics. That said, there were some snippets in there - when Jacko chose to stop being a fool for 30 second blocks - which showed he had some good points to make about the modern game. Goalkicking technique was one which surprised me, until I remembered that he was actually a pretty good shot for goal in his time.

The overall theme, however, was essentially him playing the same well-worn character he has adopted for over 35 years now and it became boring after a while.

I never really warmed to Mark Allen the radio guy.
But I have massive respect for him after tonight's show.
Actually think he is a damn decent bloke now.
he's always been pretty upbeat sort of bloke on radio, great to see it reflect in his private life. i really wish him all the best

I must be living under a rock, who's Mark Allen? And what's his relationship with footy? Never heard of him, at least not in a footy context..

Former host on radio SEN 1116, now on Macquarie Sports Radio, and ex golf professional.

Yes, tenuous link to footy, but it's a strong story.

Would like to see Sheahen interview some characters of the game, who had a brief moment in the sun, and we have never heard of since. Could have a few of them together for an hour special show. The show could include people like : Helen Damico (1982 GF streaker), the guy on the other side of the fence who nearly got the crap beaten of him by John Bourke in an Army Reserve Cup game in the 80's, the girl who rode the elephant at half time at Arden street in the 70's, etc.

He has been connecting along with Mark Schwartz with a lot of AFL fans for years through his work with SEN and now Macquarie. Really don't know what Hutchison was thinking boning these two.
It was a really powerful interview, except I didn't think it was necessary for Mike to ask Mark when he thinks he will be able to go and watch his beloved Pies.

That would be David Schwarz
