2011 AFL Predictions – The Explosion of FootyTalk.com.au

I always want to have a footy site and this site has had a few different names and focuses. One of those names was Molly’s Monday Machination and it was mainly just a weekly podcast. The name was stolen from the name given to the thoughts (probably a better way of putting it would be incoherent ramblings) I passed on to the first and still best AFL based podcast, Footytalk.com.au. Explosion still runs the podcast and each week he and another footy lover go through the games and more importantly the issues. Explosion has strong views (and apart for a time I believed him to be in the AFL’s back pocket) he isn’t afraid to give his opinions! If you haven’t listened to the show, do yourself a favor! Now to his thoughts on 2011

Last team to lose their first game for the year and what round? Collingwood Round 5

Which Coach will be Sacked first? Dean Bailey

Will Karmichael Hunt be a success and how many games? No.  8 games

Who is your Favoite Media personality?

Moles.  Quality podcasting.
But apart from him, Mark Maclure because he tells it like it is.  No mucking around and no stoking anyone’s ego.  Not even Cyril Rioli’s.

Which is your favorite TV broadcast to watch?


Which is you favorite radio station to listen too?

3LO (aka ABC Melbourne)

What will be the biggest story of the Year?

The bitch-fight that will surround the awarding of TV Rights for 2012 onwards.   Foxtel will be the major winner and will out-bid Channel 7 for live Friday night footy, with Foxtel then on selling the rights to Channel 7 rights to replay the game in Melbourne at 11.00pm

Will we have live Friday night games in 2012? Yes

Who will be the GWS Giants biggest name recruit?

Scott Pendlebury who isn’t that much of a big name really.   Apart from that, they may be lucky to get Jack Watts in a chook raffle.

What Prediction should I have asked for and what would your answer have been?

Most hated footy personality.Most of them suck bu Craig Hutchison.
Most annoying football journalistApart from Hutchison???  The Lipsticked Rottwieller.
