The whole narrative about Fritta being greedy is a joke. No way could he get the ball to Chandler without it being spoiled or having to loop it giving Kemp time to tackle or take possession. He did the right thing.

Absolute rubbish. He has form and you come up with a ridiculous excuse like that. That's also rude about Fritta's skills or any AFL player being unable to do that effectively.

Its strange when on the defensive all the reasons for Frittas selfishness are a joke. 

Don't  get me wrong I think it was his best game for the year. He seemed freer in his movement and more importantly was jumping off the ground. Has he kicked straight he would have got4 or 5 goals. Look for a big game on Monday. Hope he is over that foot issue that seems to have derailed his foot up to now. 

I reallly think Bailey is vastly underrated in the AFL and by some Dees fans as well. An  A grader in  IMO.

No, the joke is the ridiculous beat-up/pile-on on Fritsch on this non-issue. He has form? I recall one situation last year where he failed to handball on to Petracca in the goal square and was run down from behind so a certain goal was missed. Even then he was about 5m out and clearly didn't feel the pressure from behind. And this [censored] about others being rude about Fritta's skills. Seriously? Is that what we are doing? No, what we are doing if anything is the opposite. Fritsch had a kick for goal to an unguarded goal sqare that was well within his capabilities, or an alternative under-pressure high-risk handball. If both Fritsch and Chandler had been unmarked I would probably concur with the criticism, but if that was the case it would still probably have been a better option to waltz into the goal square and kick the goal rather than handball it. It's not the Fritsch supporters who are making stuff up here. It seems to me that it's his detractors re-writing the facts to fit the existing (false) narrative!

Didn't catch the live show, was it an on-air filter as well or did we get the full glory? 

I have a bleep button on my mixer. I felt the expletive coming on and engaged it LIVE.

What mixer do you use? Rodecaster? 

Actually don't suppose we could get a list of your current gear?

Great podcast! Kudos also to all those who submitted interested and well-informed questions.

BUT SERIOUSLY! Mentioning "loading" without first issuing a trigger warning??!!

Read the room or you'll be cancelled!

Not loading - increased training loads. 

Or, if that is still too triggering - a heavy block of aerobic and power conditioning 

And in any case, fatigue is the new concept requiring a trigger warning - loading is so 2022

No exuses!

At one point Kozzie flew for a speccie in front of MG when he could have stayed down for the spoils. This has been a repeating pattern, with KP continually preferencing goal of the year/ mark of the year. We are going nowhere until Melbourne gets back to tem first.

Not a lot worse in footy than knowing you are going to be a step ladder if this bloke is around.... Refer a missing CHB from pies...

😀 Just as long as you remember the loading theory ought also to apply to other teams we play. Looking forward to tomorrow’s episode. Cheers, Binman

It will only apply to some other teams we play.  There is no way Carlton is in a loading phase right now.  Very slight chance Freo was when we played them.  Collingwood will be definitely loading, perhaps even harder than we are right now given our respective records.  I will be hoping for a win this week, but will take very little away from the result as far as a form line for what may occur later in the year.

Just listening to replay of podcast.

Love your work boys, but cant agree with binmans assessment of easy draw to finish ???

Look at ladder, we have only beaten 1 side in top 8 and all other wins are against 6 of the bottom 7 sides.

This would mean we have to play all sides inside 8 to finish.

Hope im wrong, but i can't see how  we beat pies on monday with the form we're in, and too think we can just flick a switch and play 2021 footy in the back end just doesn't sit well with me.

I was refering more to not having to travel as much, less short breaks between games and mutiple games at the G (six of our last eleven).

But on the difficulty of the run home, we have 11 more games and of teams currently in the top 8, we play the Pies, Lions , Cats away and Saints at Marvel.

The other seven games are against teams currently outside the 8, including games against the Crows (who can't win away) at the G, Roos, Hawks, Blues again and the Swans, who are paddling, away in the last round. 

The Pies are slight favorites with the bookies, the Cats will be favs but at home we will be close to even money against the lions, maybe favs and we'll be short odds against the Saints.

So of our last 11 games we will likely start favorite in 8, maybe 9 of them. And no longer than say 2.30 (against the cats)

That's not a hard run home, particularly if you compare it to last season.

It's very similar to the difficulty of the Cats' run in to the finals last season i reckon.

Carlton could be doing something to get the extra reps in. Either that or what they are doing in their fitness program is missing the mark completely. None of their mids move forward of the ball at the moment or with any overlap.

True I didn't even bleep out last week's for [censored] sake.

The one after the 2021 GF was the best though.

We have been having too much travel and short breaks in recent weeks to start loading before this week. The next three weeks seem well set up for some higher conditioning loads.

DeGoey will be loading extra HAARD for the next three weeks

Sounds like I was a bit off with the pressure according to the numbers you guys mentioned. It could have been pressure in certain areas and moments that I was impressed with. Forward half was very good I thought.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
