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 · 14/02/2018 at 22:47

    Thanks Hedski! Hope you enjoyed it mate!

Patch · 14/02/2018 at 21:55

Alternative working title:

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

Liam · 14/02/2018 at 22:03

My day has been made.

Love you fellas.

    Patch · 14/02/2018 at 22:05

    <3 you too mate!

    Please let us know what you think!

      Liam · 15/02/2018 at 07:16

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

Tiger Man · 14/02/2018 at 22:17

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

Gray · 14/02/2018 at 22:26

Great show Lek & Patch!!

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:12

    Thanks Gray!

DavidSA · 14/02/2018 at 22:33

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 · 14/02/2018 at 22:48

    Thanks David! Appreciate the feedback mate!

Damo · 14/02/2018 at 22:35

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

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:12

    Yasss Damo

DavidSA · 14/02/2018 at 22:38

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 · 14/02/2018 at 22:49

    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 · 14/02/2018 at 22:47

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 · 15/02/2018 at 12:51

    Think this comment got auto deleted by the site bots

hedski · 14/02/2018 at 22:50

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 · 15/02/2018 at 17:12

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

T_Mitch · 14/02/2018 at 22:51

Looking forward to the gin year ahead gents

    T_Mitch · 14/02/2018 at 22:52


      Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:12

      Gin is good too

nickgonzalez771 · 14/02/2018 at 22:53

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

    Patch · 15/02/2018 at 22:30


Donald Drumpf · 14/02/2018 at 22:54

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

    Lekdog · 14/02/2018 at 23:56

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

Skindog · 14/02/2018 at 23:33

Please come back Jock, higgo and Crouching😩😩

gordo29 · 14/02/2018 at 23:45

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 · 14/02/2018 at 23:54


Canny · 14/02/2018 at 23:55

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

    gordo29 · 15/02/2018 at 00:26

    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 · 16/02/2018 at 15:41

    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_ · 16/02/2018 at 22:39

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

Lekdog · 14/02/2018 at 23:56

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 · 15/02/2018 at 00:46

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

Stirlsy · 15/02/2018 at 01:09

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 · 15/02/2018 at 12:52

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

Keefer · 15/02/2018 at 03:42

Great start boys. Onwards and upwards

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:13

    Thanks Keefer

Goat · 15/02/2018 at 06:56

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

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:13

    Cheers Goat

Gazza · 15/02/2018 at 08:09

What about Harley Bennel at 260k

    Steeeve · 15/02/2018 at 11:17

    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 · 15/02/2018 at 17:13

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

      Northernsoul74 · 15/02/2018 at 21:32

      Being reported he’s done his calf again.

    Russty_ · 15/02/2018 at 21:48

    Nah, flog, hothead, drunk, idiot.

    Patch · 15/02/2018 at 22:31

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

jordanandeddie · 15/02/2018 at 08:34

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

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:13

    Thanks Jordo

Baz · 15/02/2018 at 08:41

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 · 15/02/2018 at 17:13

    We will defend the wall

WyldStallion · 15/02/2018 at 09:06

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

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:14

    Thanks mate

Heath · 15/02/2018 at 09:07

either both be in character or both be yourself.

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 12:53

    I think we are both being ourselves mate 🙂

StevoRivo · 15/02/2018 at 09:10

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 · 15/02/2018 at 17:14

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

The_Blacksheep · 15/02/2018 at 10:23

Great debut Lekdog and Patch!

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:15

    Cheers sheep

CrackersFC · 15/02/2018 at 11:14

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.
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 · 15/02/2018 at 11:26

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 · 15/02/2018 at 12:54

    Crouching? Is that you!?

Dice · 15/02/2018 at 14:09

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

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:15

    I’ll put in a word at the Manhattan

INPieman · 15/02/2018 at 14:11

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 · 15/02/2018 at 15:48

    i tell ya, his arms are too short

      Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:16

      The old T-Rex look

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:15

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

TommyC99 · 15/02/2018 at 15:21

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

    INPieman · 15/02/2018 at 16:01

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

      TommyC99 · 15/02/2018 at 16:18

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

        neil demons delight · 15/02/2018 at 20:08

        is sauce worth thinking about

          Russty_ · 15/02/2018 at 21:54

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

          TommyC99 · 16/02/2018 at 08:52

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

    Derek · 15/02/2018 at 16:05

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

    Will be good for a late draft pickup

      TommyC99 · 15/02/2018 at 16:17

      Which other ruckman would you pick Derek?

        Derek · 15/02/2018 at 16:41

        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 · 15/02/2018 at 17:07

          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 · 15/02/2018 at 17:21

            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 · 15/02/2018 at 17:15

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

    fcabel · 15/02/2018 at 16:46

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

      Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:17

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

      Russty_ · 15/02/2018 at 21:52

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

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:16

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

      Whitey · 15/02/2018 at 19:19

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

        Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 20:11

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

    neil demons delight · 15/02/2018 at 18:15

    must be considered

    Westy · 16/02/2018 at 07:19

    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 · 15/02/2018 at 16:46

Casting of the pod = outstanding

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 17:17

    Thanks mate, means a lot

Bogan Juniors · 15/02/2018 at 17:58

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

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 20:11

    Thanks BJ

Gav · 15/02/2018 at 19:10

Great job boys, keep up the good work.

    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 20:11

    Love it Gav

hedski · 15/02/2018 at 19:14

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

    Derek · 15/02/2018 at 19:22

    It actually looks like footy

      hedski · 15/02/2018 at 19:39

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

Imgonnalose · 15/02/2018 at 19:21

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

    Derek · 15/02/2018 at 22:31

    I actually like the canned laughter

Love the work · 15/02/2018 at 19:41

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 · 15/02/2018 at 20:12

    I'll have to start listening to that one 😉

    We'll find our feet

DavidSA · 15/02/2018 at 20:06


    Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 21:31

    It's certainly something…

      Russty_ · 15/02/2018 at 21:50

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

Tyruddanaut · 15/02/2018 at 20:16

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 · 15/02/2018 at 20:23

    I think some scripted parts/lines could help

      Lekdog · 15/02/2018 at 21:30

      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

        dontblushbabbie · 15/02/2018 at 22:59

        Exactly , be your own men, I personally prefer 95% SC and have fun with the other 5% imo

        Cheers boys, thanks for taking on the previous good work done by Jock , onwards and upwards my friends in 18

        Russty_ · 15/02/2018 at 23:34

        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 · 17/02/2018 at 17:38

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

        Iamme · 18/02/2018 at 10:45

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

        Finnius123 · 18/02/2018 at 13:31

        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 · 15/02/2018 at 20:16

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 · 15/02/2018 at 22:34

    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 · 15/02/2018 at 20:25

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 · 15/02/2018 at 22:34

    Cheers Scotty! Thanks mate!

The Flying Dutchman · 15/02/2018 at 20:35

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 · 15/02/2018 at 22:35

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

AuroraBorealis?! · 15/02/2018 at 21:47

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

    Patch · 15/02/2018 at 22:35

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

Post_MaSloane · 15/02/2018 at 22:01

Love the work as usual boys!

    Patch · 15/02/2018 at 22:35

    Thanks mate!

Hooks · 16/02/2018 at 00:27

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 · 16/02/2018 at 08:10

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

    Lekdog · 17/02/2018 at 17:38

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

Mike · 16/02/2018 at 10:59

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 · 17/02/2018 at 17:39

    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 · 21/02/2018 at 21:41

      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 · 16/02/2018 at 12:10

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_ · 16/02/2018 at 22:40

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

Rabbits16 · 16/02/2018 at 18:22

nice work boys yee haa

TOPHAWK1 · 16/02/2018 at 21:58

Hmmm. I like the look of James Worpel. Hard at the footy, tackles with intensity, and gets his hands on the footy.

    neil demons delight · 16/02/2018 at 22:03

    petracca too tophawk looks in great nick as does Burton

      TOPHAWK1 · 16/02/2018 at 22:13

      Petracca is currently a starter in my side. He is ready to go bang in 2018! Well done on winning the AFL X grand final against my boys tonight…… Its a a piece of silverware for you boys…….. That X trophy looks more like a lump of wood mind you. Hehehe

        Russty_ · 16/02/2018 at 22:38

        They only won cause your lads cheated against the Saints, they must have cause no one could kick that many goals so quick lol

          neil demons delight · 16/02/2018 at 23:08

          hard to find an s c relevant saint .I think GATOR was right

            Russty_ · 16/02/2018 at 23:40

            No One knows yet Neil, how each new season will turn out..,many of your Team's so called guns could turn out 'Irrelevant' too.

              neil demons delight · 17/02/2018 at 08:38

              Melbourne have probably 3 hibberd gawn oliver Saints zero but that doesn't mean anything onfield . Saints will have a ripper year dare say better than my mob

Luke · 16/02/2018 at 22:18

I'm still struggling with this ''new dawn''. No disrespect to Lek and Patch. I admire them for taking on the responsibiltity. Well done guys. To Jock, Higgo and Crouching…thanks for all the memories and whilst listening to your podcasts over the years I'll always remember the laughs. You blokes are second to none and I'll long for your comeback… I always remember on a Tuesday night I'd be waiting for the podcast to be posted. Almost felt like I was sitting there with you magnificent specimens. Crawling out from the depths of supercoach wisdom

    You'll, be ok, just know that things have changed now, and if you want to seek out the best, most informed Supercoach advice, you have to seek it out.
    No Point being all sentimental about things in the past, after all , it's about being able to find out the best info regarding Supercoach for your team, Not about staying loyal to a Website, if it isn't the same website anymore.
    The best research is your own research.

A massive thank you to all involved and your efforts goes unnoticed. Cheers fellas. And best of Luck to Jock, Higgo and Crouching one. What I'll miss most is Higgo's Quantam Team Mechanics!!! Is there any chance any of you 3 can do a phone call for the Podcast like Wayne used to do with his Hot Tip?
