AFL is coming back on June 11 and today the League has released its draw for the first little part of the resumption of the 2020 season.
If there’s one subject of discussion I can absorb its fixture talk.
To get ready for tonight’s footy programs, I’ve gone to the effort of creating a Same Game AFL Show Multi to spice things up
Leg 1: People are shocked Geelong gets to play home game at home ground.
Leg 2: A Conspiracy theory as to why Richmond and Collingwood always play at the MCG.
Leg 3: Thursday and Friday night football referred to as the “big-stage”
Leg 4: Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds) v Fremantle referred to as the “Queensland Derby”
Leg 5: South Australian panellist makes the claim of VICTORIAN BIAS about scheduling of the Showdown.

The Greatest Season That Was “The Semi-Final” – Podcast
1999 World Cup Semi-Final AUS v SA – Fox Cricket 7 pm
We’ve recommended watching a replay of the 1999 Cricket World Cup Semi-Final before, however, if you really want to immerse yourself in one of the greatest sporting chokes of all-time we highly recommend this Podcast/Replay double.
If you haven’t gotten around The Greatest Season That Was podcast yet, you really should.
Cricket writers Adam Collins, Daniel Bretig and Shannon Gill have teamed up over the past couple of years to present “The Greatest Season That Was” podcast series.
Originally devoted to AFL season 1993, The Greatest Season That Was has branched out to tell stories about the Fitzroy Bulldogs, the summer of 1994-95 Australia A series, America’s relationship with Aussie Rules and the 1999 Cricket World Cup.
This recent edition of the 1999 World Cup podcast is an absolute masterpiece featuring anyone and everyone involved in that Australia v South Africa recapping the greatest One Day International of all time.
Listen to The Greatest Season That Was during the day and then at 7 pm chuck the TV on FOX Cricket and watch South Africa’s choke in the final over.
WEDNESDAY 27th MAY
FOX Sports 505 – 6:30 pm
Neds are proud to be the official partner of the Professional Bull Riders in Australia and if you haven’t got around it yet, you’re missing out.
It’s best to set the IQ, on-demand or make sure you get to a TV and chuck on FOX Sports 505 to watch the Pro Bull Riding Series.
These are some of the toughest sportsmen you’ll ever see for eight-seconds of madness as they take on the bulls in a bid to become the best bull-rider.
Naturally, we have markets for it and there’s plenty of value to be found.

Oh how they laughed at Peter V’Landys when he said the Rugba-League would be back on May 28th.
Well, guess what?
RUGBA-LEAGUE IS BLOODY BACK BABY!
We’re not watching replays.
We’re not watching documentaries.
We’re not watching live-recalls of classic games.
WE’RE WATCHING ACTUAL, LIVE NATIONAL RUGBY LEAGUE ACTION BETWEEN THE BRISBANE BRONCOS AND THE PARRAMATTA EELS.
Just hook it into my veins.
