103. Silly Buggers, with Kane Richardson
Play episode · 1 hr 11 min
Well, Boxing Day is done and dusted. We’ve smashed the Kiwis on home soil and evicted an All Black for daring to drink half a mid-strength beer. We’re feeling safe, and therefore it’s time to play “silly buggers” to show we’ve learned nothing from sandpaper.

The MCG pitch was OK, but the bigger story is that the notorious Bay 13 has been replaced by the Boundary Social — yet another win for the corporates. Fucken good view though, while providing tremendous networking opportunities at a reasonable price.

Meanwhile Sydney is confirmed as another meaningless dead rubber test (assuming air pollution levels permit the game to go ahead). Regardless, we speculate over who should be dropped, and why Travis Head’s runs make us feel nothing.

Kane Richardson joins us for some deeply relatable chat that includes a) which professional kit to wear at grade cricket, b) T20 bowling strategy, and c) setting the record straight on his friendship with fellow vegan Adam Zampa.

Finally, #AskTGC tackles some big themes: getting champed by young upstart captains, Jackson Bird’s human sacrifice, and what to do when the woman of your dreams just doesn’t return your texts post-chop.

Bound for Glory: Gary Ayres
At the start of 1991, the family club were coming off a season where they had failed to continue in the family tradition, eliminated by Melbourne the previous September to miss their first Grand Final since 1982 - unable to complete a three-peat. As odd as it sounds, their failure to make it to the big one in 1990 sent the club into a tailspin. They had been called too old and too slow in the past – maybe, just maybe, it was now true? When the West Coast Eagles, the new kids on the block, towelled them up at home early into the new campaign alarm bells sounded once more. But sure enough, Michael Tuck’s side got on a roll to finish in second spot on the ladder. Their next mission: a trip across the Nullarbor to take on Mick Malthouse’s hotshots to start one of the most anticipated finals series ever held. All the experience of the battled-hardened Hawks was on display through the month that matters most, overcoming West Coast at Subiaco then just reaching the finish line against Geelong a week later to earn a berth in the Grand Final at VFL Park. The Eagles were now on their territory for the decider. Gary Ayres knows more than most about saving the best for last Saturday in September, twice winning the Norm Smith Medal as best afield in the 1986 and 1988 Grand Finals. By 1991, he was the vice-captain at Glenferrie, hunting his fifth premiership. The man they called Conan joins The Greatest Season That Was to take us into the inner sanctum of one of the most decorated and celebrated football team ever assembled.
