PODCAST: A NEW DAWN

Published by Lekdog & Patch on

A new dawn is upon us.

The Jock Reynolds podcasts are back. Lekdog and Patch have stepped up to the microphone in the wake of Jock, Higgo and Crouching stepping down.

It’s a rough one. Be gentle with us, community. We are but new at this podcast game. We’re not the men that came before us, with their talent, their humour, their insight.

But we can damn well try, which is what we’ve done.

It’s a rough one, and we’ll get better, but please let us know what you want to hear in the podcasts. What you want us to see, what (if anything) worked and what didn’t.

So sit back, relax and try not to cry as you think about the warm embrace of Jock Reynolds as Lekdog and Patch unpack the fantasty relevance from Adelaide, Brisbane, Carlton and Collingwood.

Woo hoo, was down to my last handful of kibble, bring it on boys!

Patch

Thanks Hedski! Hope you enjoyed it mate!

Patch

Alternative working title:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
We heard you liked podcasts
So we made one for you

Liam

My day has been made.

Love you fellas.

Patch

<3 you too mate!

Please let us know what you think!

Liam

Loved it.
Can’t wait for the next one.

Tiger Man

Good work lads, big shoes to fill but I think the podcast is in safe hands.

Gray

Great show Lek & Patch!!

Lekdog

Thanks Gray!

DavidSA

You guys we be fine
Just don't try too hard or force it in a character sense.

I think do a formula that's familiar with your own flavour 🙂
Can always refer to the past if it can be tied into a topic that is relevant.

Patch

Thanks David! Appreciate the feedback mate!

Damo

Cracking job fellas. Can't wait for the next podcast.

Lekdog

Yasss Damo

DavidSA

Oh just thought of this too btw
Should bid to get one of the magestic 3 or all 3 for that matter for one special podcast this year somewhere down the season 🙂 this time they are guests

Patch

Jock's bloody difficult to get a hold of now he's living off the land and Crouching is still on a lot of morphine, so it probably won't be an option for the time being but hearing those voices again would do interesting things to my trouser region

Patch

He wrote a letter to the community on the weekend talking about it: http://www.jockreynolds.com.au/2018/02/11/a-lette

They've decided to step back for a while

Lekdog

Think this comment got auto deleted by the site bots

hedski

Great work lads, a touch of echo in the mics there but I'm sure you will smooth that out.
Got a little bit of Rocket Eade about you Patch!
Looking fwd to next week cheers boys.

Lekdog

Will be addressed in coming pods my friend, thanks for the support

T_Mitch

Looking forward to the gin year ahead gents

nickgonzalez771

Seeing patch back in action makes me happy beyond words. Love you long time
Good man!

Patch

<3

Donald Drumpf

Laugh tracks – really? Hmmmmm. As per above, dont try too hard or force it. Good luck.

Lekdog

In the words of Rainier Wolfcastle “that’s the joke”

Skindog

Please come back Jock, higgo and Crouching😩😩

gordo29

Glad you guys are back up and running. Any chances yous can put a post your team link up? Always a good read through the comments

Lekdog

Yes

Canny

Played against Alex Witherden throughout my juniors. Always a class above. Really like him for SC this year but he's very pricey.

gordo29

I currently have him in my team. Going light in def to start this year with him and Howe the only two pricey ones

leedy

I think you are on the money Canny. Looked composed and a cut above in his first year. I am backing him in too. As for Lekdog suggesting burn man Rich … he must be trolling!

Russty_

Worth the price, he's going to be a premo.

Lekdog

I’ll say this, we’ll get better. The recording studio will get better. We’ll try and make it our own. We love you all

John

You will be better for the run Lekdog and patch we all believe in you

Stirlsy

WTF Dribble Dribble Dribble was what I was expecting after reading the start of the lead in but no you guys make it very informative and well worth the listen.
Just be ya self and you wont go wrong very simple a bit of banter lov it, Good luck for the season ahead Guys.

Lekdog

Love you Stirlsy but we were comparing ourselves to giants of the game, appreciate your love

Keefer

Great start boys. Onwards and upwards

Lekdog

Thanks Keefer

Goat

Great effort Lekdog and Patch. Looking forward to next week.

Lekdog

Cheers Goat

Gazza

What about Harley Bennel at 260k

Steeeve

Mate I know it's tempting. But it's Harley Bennell.
Spend half that much on a rookie and turn one of your other selections into an uber premo.

Lekdog

He’s not worth the risk, he’ll break your heart

Russty_

Nah, flog, hothead, drunk, idiot.

Patch

Done his calf again as of today. Off the list. Was considering.

jordanandeddie

Good stuff guys! Can never have too many Simpsons references or Texan vitriol.
Keep up the good work!

Lekdog

Thanks Jordo

Baz

Aahhh that was good. Just listening to a supercoach podcast while experimenting with my side on the laptop was a soothing experience. It's how mid February should be spent.
The flame could of burned out after Jock, Higgo and Crouching left. But you guys said No, not on our watch. Well done lads keep it up

Lekdog

We will defend the wall

WyldStallion

Really enjoyed the show Lek & Patch great stuff! Well researched and some excellent advice – very much looking forward to next weeks show.

Lekdog

Thanks mate

Heath

either both be in character or both be yourself.

Lekdog

I think we are both being ourselves mate 🙂

StevoRivo

Rapt to have the podcasts back. Good start Lek & Patch & welcome aboard. And no I am never picking burn man Rich again Lek. Thoughts on starting with Rayner, Doedee & Murray?

Lekdog

All seem feasible rookie selections…I’ll convince you on Rich just you watch

The_Blacksheep

Great debut Lekdog and Patch!

Lekdog

Cheers sheep

CrackersFC

Terrific debut boys. Big shoes to fill and you both did a great job!
Seemed to be a difference in recording levels at the start of the podcast between the two voices but got better over time, or I just got used to it.
Great idea going club by club.
Suggestions:
After Club by Club move to Line by Line
Then a Rookies podcast
Maybe a JLT pod with wisdom gained from players moving clubs etc, what's changed.
Also a stats one. What would a team look like with most popular pick and how much would it cost. Interesting because there would be a lot of Guns and also a lot of rookies to offset.
Maybe something on strategy of the game GnRs vs Mid price madness esp in the FWD line.
For what it's worth there's my suggestions bots.
Looking forward to a great season.

CrouchingHiding

Old Pyanmese saying "when the froth is gone and no more bubbles left it's time to empty the glass and get a freshy"

Lekdog

Crouching? Is that you!?

Dice

Lek can you bring that fine piece of flesh we seen from last year on the podcast?
Video would be much appreciated…

Lekdog

I’ll put in a word at the Manhattan

INPieman

I had to get myself a new phone this morning. I was listening to the podcast & I heard Lek say he had Daniel Rich in his team. I threw my phone at a brick wall & when it hit the ground I kept stomping on it until it was obliterated. The only thing worse than having him in your team is watching him play. He wouldn't register a hard ball get at Auskick. Softest laziest prick I can remember. If I was in a room with Daniel Rich I'd give him the same treatment my phone got this morning

Derek

i tell ya, his arms are too short

Lekdog

The old T-Rex look

Lekdog

Sorry about the phone Pieman but we gotta get some hot takes in the pod haha

TommyC99

Thoughts on Zac Smith as a POD? Has a very good midfield to get some hit outs to advantage.

INPieman

Worth a thought. He could hit it anywhere & one of his midfielders would pick it up

TommyC99

Yeah that was my thinking, and no other ruckman besides Gawn are exciting

neil demons delight

is sauce worth thinking about

Russty_

Fer sure Neil, $525,000 is a decent price for a 95 ave ruck.

TommyC99

He is the front runner for the spot atm, thought of Smith as a bit of a POD

Derek

If he was cheaper I’d consider, but $500k is premium. Same price as Gawn!

Will be good for a late draft pickup

TommyC99

Which other ruckman would you pick Derek?

Derek

This could be the first year I go with 2 premium rucks from round 1.

At moment I have Ryder and Gawn, but the round 10 bye for Ryder is doing my head in.

Shake n bake

If your only missing 1 player from that rd 10 bye you’ll be totally fine!! He’ll become very important in the other bye rds. I had Ryder all year last season and am strongly considering him again this year.

TommyC99

Yeah Ryder would be a lock for me if there was a ruck/fwd swing, but the fact there isnt means people will most likely have a 0

neil demons delight

Have you a playing backup I have the same two with Cameron who may play Sinclair and Naismith his opponents

fcabel

They're all a punt. Keeping an eye on Hickey

Lekdog

Fails the flog test but boy he tempts me at that price

Russty_

Better off going for Nank Abel, plus Longer is ahead of Hickey.

Lekdog

Risky, just wait til champion data make Lobb a ruckman…they’ll do that right? Right!?

Whitey

Lobb may miss the start of the season…welcome Dawson.

Lekdog

Have an article on him in the works mate, could be a cash generator despite history being against him

neil demons delight

must be considered

Westy

Even though I'm probably biased (Geelong supporter) I've had the same thought too (but haven't got any of the Geelong mids in my team yet).

fcabel

Casting of the pod = outstanding

Lekdog

Thanks mate, means a lot

Bogan Juniors

Really enjoyed the podcast gents looking forward to the next installment.

Lekdog

Thanks BJ

Gav

Great job boys, keep up the good work.

Lekdog

Love it Gav

hedski

I smell a cats premiership (aflx) tonight. Ha ha.

Derek

It actually looks like footy

hedski

Game goes in the blink of an eye, missed half of crows/maggots game when I fed the dog.

Imgonnalose

Great stuff boys, was never gonna be easy! Can't wait for the year ahead bring it on!

Derek

I actually like the canned laughter

Love the work

Good on ya boys, like it, only thing I would say is it's a bit similar to Herald Sun podcasts if you don't go into character and I think a lot of people come here to get away from the Herald Sun garbage, not slandering though I like it so far keep it up!

Lekdog

I'll have to start listening to that one 😉

We'll find our feet

DavidSA

AFLX
🤢

Lekdog

It's certainly something…

Russty_

It's nice to see …not 30 people all over the ball like a rash every possession for a change.

Tyruddanaut

I think there needs to be more attempts at humour. It’s what Jock did so well, he made it more about the entertainment rather than the supercoach. Apart from that it’s fantastic insight

Tyruddanaut

I think some scripted parts/lines could help

Lekdog

We'll work towards our personalities but we don't want to just try and recreate what came before us, those men are infinitely more funny than us

Russty_

I'd rather hear more facts and relevant info rather than humour or putting on fake voices, a bit of humour doesn't go astray though 🙂
Hey Lek…How come all three (Jock, Crouching, Higgo)…left at the same time?
The story of Jock 'returning to the land', Crouching 'getting his legs burned off by hostile natives' and Higgo caring for Crouching is all well and good, but what really happened?

Lekdog

That's their story to tell Rusty. If they want the world to know, they'll be in touch

Iamme

Just be yourselves boys, the chemistry between you will get better and better each week.

Finnius123

To be honest I like it the way it is. It isn't forced – it's just two guys sitting around discussing supercoach with a bit of awkward humour in there. I love it – keep up the good work xxx

Imgonnalose

Hey community, are there any rookie priced players playing tonight? I know it's not really like afl but would still like to watch them

Patch

Dooooooddddeeeeee looked very good. A few others looked good but to be honest I'm trying not to look into it too much

Scott Brown

I am an past avid listener of this show and you boys have done a great job here. I love the fact that you have decided to focus on what is important…and that is the players and this beautiful creature known as Fantasy football. Keep it up boys…..LOVE IT 🙂

Patch

Cheers Scotty! Thanks mate!

The Flying Dutchman

After listening to the podcast I finally registered my team for 2018, it feels like the season preparations are now in full swing – great to read the comments from so many familiar community members.

Unless I have missed it, I have not yet seen any opinion aired on The Bont. I have this feeling he will bounce back this year and leap into the top 10. Anyone think the same? Or is he flying under the radar and shaping up as a very attractive pod?

Patch

Will cover him when we get to the Doggies – candidate for a player preview but no promises!

AuroraBorealis?!

Excellent podcast boys, looking forward to the year ahead. Any chance you'll be making a rookie cheat sheet this season?

Patch

There is a chance indeed. Not locked in, but we're keeping it in the forefronts of our frontal lobe cortex thingies

Post_MaSloane

Love the work as usual boys!

Patch

Thanks mate!

Hooks

Great start fellas, I'm not so sure about Crouch as a lock, I had him from the start last year so this is coming from like his biggest fan but I see a plethora of options at this range like how can you go pass Martin, Kelly, Fyfe or even Selwood at 550ish without stacking Midfield Preemos, I do have him atm just playing devils advocate its a tough one.

sc tragic

Well done guys. Will we see your cheat sheet this year Lek?

Lekdog

Would love to get it up, we'll have to see how time management goes

Mike

Glad to see you are putting forth the effort – thank christ you weren't trying to be too funny.
Make it your own, but…
Please buy a better mic fellas.

Lekdog

When Patchy boy is back home he'll have his mic and then we can stop trying to use mine for two people, it'll sort itself out

Hoot

Yeah mate that mic a priority… sounded like Patch was on the shitter.

Great job though.

As Mike said, it has to be your own style or it will not work.

Good luck.

Go Blues!

Can only improve from here

neil demons delight

IN KELLY OUT DUSTY Why? Only just read since 2008 only 1 B /F has increased their s c output. Based on this you can expect Dusty to drop. I read this fascinating data that changed my mind on DUSTY and what everyones talking about DEREK,S article on CHAMPION DATA,S scoring system at fantasysupercoach.com a must read

Russty_

Dusty always drops, and regains, pick him up half way through the season.
