The guy who made the video (Friendlyjordies) is very pro-Labor but he's also very anti-mainstream media. It's not really a left vs right thing with him, he just thinks mainstream media in pretty much all its forms is inane garbage.
And the message from mainstream media is heavily controlled and dictated by big business

Personally I think he’s hilarious

When did they start having that show on Sunday night instead of Monday?
Don't know. I was flicking through channels and it was on. Caro is on leave so Barrett was on instead. They mentioned Port and like a kid who hears the ice cream truck tune they had me.

Chris Judd on Footy Classified last night compared Port's list profile to that of the 2014 Bulldogs and declared we are in the frame for a premiership in two years.
Last year he said we had too many changes to gell and make finals. This year we had 1 less to the list but more to the best 22 and he now reckons we can do a Bulldogs 2016.

Last night was first time. Reckon its got to do with The Voice on Monday night is coming to the end and those finals go longer, and also trying to piggy back off the state of origin lead in. Reckon its only a 1 or 2 week thing.

Edit Reckon its a 1 weeker. Next Sunday 9 has the Logies and that always blows out past midnight.

If we copped the umpiring that the Dogs did in 2016 we'd be in the frame for a premiership now.
I'd just take Adelaide or West Coast umpiring at our home ground year on year. Despite Ken's shortfalls we would have made top 4 in 2014 and finals in 2015 and 2018 with equivalents of those perennial rim jobs from the umpires. When you equate how much finals, both in direct revenue from hosting and associated boosts in merchandise sales, memberships and therefore sponsorships, Adelaide is given a head start year on year of 2 - 3 million. Ken may be happy to sip the Coke and collect a pay cheque, but for a supposedly astute finance 'guru', Koch sure is dumb on this.

He said our list is similar to the Dogs in 2014. So we're well positioned to push for a flag in two years time, not this year.

Deserves a nod IMO.

Anyone listen to SEN the other night? Charlie, 5aa's resident Collingwood caller rung up and started to complain about Stephenson's suspension claiming it was far too harsh cause he self reported.

Rucci straight away batted him into a corner saying if he played any other sport that he would've got more than 22 games he would've got 2 years+, and that he wouldn't have got more than half of them suspended.

And that's probably exactly what Charlie would have rung up and said had it been a player from any other club.

Turns out Barrett does pay attention to Port games


Ifgenuine, all-in passion was the key to last week's potentially season-shaping performance against ladder leader Geelong ...
thenthe Power are going to require a different motivation if they are to do as expected and follow it up with victory against the Dogs. Potential danger game for a team that doesn't always consolidate big wins.
