Episode 63 - 1945

In our 1945 episode, we get into the last of the war years, and we have a very interesting year to discuss as 1945 is the year of the infamous bloodbath, and we can't wait to get stuck into it. Also, 1945 has a once in a league anomaly, that will never ever happen again! We have a team with a new nickname! Possibly one you have never heard of, we have some legends of the game making their debuts, One of the expansion teams makes their first appearance in the finals and we say goodbye to a long list of retirees!

Episode 61 - 1943

Welcome to the 1943 episode, where the war is again affecting the league. Again Geelong sits out, but the VFL comes up with a fair way to play the season out, knowing that teams need to have byes, which will then see me raise a question about Collingwood. We will also discuss Roy Cazaly’s rebranding of Hawthorn, Fitzroy seems to be back after a long time playing in mediocrity, with captain Fred Hughson being awarded a world title! Jack Dyer’s prediction of vengeance begins to come to fruition, and the lightening premiership is back!
