    Sorry guys, just my opinion on Hewett. He will be good playing the role he is playing. Just don’t forget the season goes for 23 Rounds. Carlton now have a new Coach who I think will be good for the Blues, I just think if Carlton are behind say at half time M Voss may use a Tagger and Hewitt will be there first choice as Tagger (Worpel). But by saying that I have him in my side. I think the question on who is the best out of Hewitt and Sicily? I’ll be going Sicily.

    Just need some opinions if i should do this

    Ruc: Gawn, Grundy -> ROB, Draper

    this will give me enough cash to them go

    Mcinerney -> Crisp

    as well as my forward

    Brodie, rachele, 190 bench player -> Charlie Cameron, Brodie, Rachele

    I like the set and forget rucks but this will help boost both my forward line and backline so im not sure which to do, any advice would be appreciated.

      your replacing 2 (hopefully) rolling 22 players with 1. It doesn’t really make sense to do that

    Hey boys,
    I know sponsers help make the shows production better and what not but surely it’s not hard to say no to sportsbet and pick up someone less morally corrupt. When I’m sure you have many listeners under the age of 18 listening and already getting the idea of gambling and sports association ingrained in their head it kind of leaves a sour taste in the mouth. Beyond that a fair few people play fantasy as a way to have an extra layer of enjoyment with footy without having to gamble, there’s no need to keep reminding people of that option. Just my thoughts, happy to hear/discuss any opinions for it ✌️
    P.S Taylor Adams gonna be pod of the year

      They might not have much of a choice since sportsbet is an offical partner/sponsor of the AFL.
