Episode 65 - 1947

On the 1947 we have a very interesting year to discuss. Down at Geelong, many many interesting things are happening, Jack Dyer does his best to motivate Richmond. Will Collingwoods last quarter fade-outs occur again this season, and could Jock McHale's position as a coach be under jeopardy? And Fred Fanning puts on an absolute clinic in his final game as a Demon!

In the 1946 episode of the Kick to kick podcast, we are still talking about the fallout from the bloodbath. The League brings in some big changes to the game, you know they love to tinker with things. Again there are big changes to the top 4, another superstar of the 1930’s tries to make a comeback, the doggies kick some big scores and the Bombers and Demons go back to looking like the team they wear in the early 40s!

 

A song by the Blazing Zoo's is also played in this episode, entitled Bob Chitty's Blues- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEkadHN6hW4
