Ep 068 - Massive Footy Finals Preview With Head To Head and Multi Specials

Ep 068 – Massive Footy Finals Preview With Head To Head And Multi Specials

This is the podcast for Thursday 14th September 2017 and in our breaking news headlines this week: With just five months to go before the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea, organisers are concerned as to the lack of ticket sales. Games officials are hopeful fans are waiting until the last minute to get on board with the Olympic spirit and fans are hopeful North Korea don’t wipe the peninsula off the map in the time being West Coast’s Luke Shuey has ended Port Adelaide’s 2017 premiership run with a goal after the extra time siren. Furious Port Adelaide chairman David Koch said after the game that “players who were happy being in the AFL rather than striving to win a premiership had no place at the club.” Strong words from the bloke who I still look at as a finance reporter for the evening news and has no place on breakfast television. And in a stunning surprise, fans of NRL clubs eliminated in the first week of the finals all blame the refs. Sure, there were some decisions dodgier than Lance Armstrong in there, though let’s be honest folks… if your team was any good, they a- wouldn’t have been playing in an elimination final and b- would still be good enough to beat the opposition because the same referees with the same 50/50 decisions come out every single week. Unless you’re a storm supporter, because I’m not sure any of this applies to Cameron Smith. And we’ve […]

When asked about their playoff opponents Syria, coach Ange Postecoglou said that their away tie was set to be a blast but suggested the entire campaign could explode if they don’t tread carefully on enemy soil. No kidding Ange. And Twice Irish champion Jockey Davy Russell has been suspended for four days for punching a horse prior to the start of a race. Unfortunately, details of the incident are unclear, so we weren’t sure whether or not it was appropriate to make a related joke… about Conor McGregor… or Chris Brown… or Sarah Jessica Parker… PLUS on the show this week: NFL, AFL finals, NRL finals, Winx Watch and some racing tips for the weekend Worthwhile Weekly Wagers Pete NFL Redskins at home to beat the Eagles @ $2 Detroit at […]
