Episode 174 – Our New/Old Team Member

Army Navy Trump

Pies is in Moore Park paying his respects to the Sydney Football Stadium before it gets demolished. So in his place is new/old team member Nathan. Nathan has been watching every sport in the world lately so he’ll fit right in.

First up is Big Zacko via satellite talking NFL. The Rams got stopped by the Bears. And the Giants can’t even tank right. The scene is set for the big clash between the Giants and Titans this weekend.

We have Swainy on the line to recap the Spring tour of Europe and to talk up the future of Rugby in this country.

We recap an eventful first test in Adelaide. The Aussies almost pulled off the miracle win. But it probably didn’t deserve it and the final margin flattered the top 6.

Nathan brings back some much needed Darts talk. Plus heaps more with NBA, NBL, EPL and more.

Episode 169 – Freestyle Thoughts

Pacific Dunes

Big Zacko and The Producer Episode 5. With Pies down at Flemington checking out the form, The Producer and Big Zacko decide to give Swainy more rein than he’s used to. And the big man doesn’t disappoint swaying away from Rugby into uncharted territory.

The boys then break down all the action from the NFL. The Producer’s Rams keep winning. Big Zacko’s Titans had the bye and Pies’ Giants had another underwhelming loss.

Winx, the mighty mare won an unprecedented 4th straight WS Cox Plate. Big Zacko breaks down all the action from Mooney Valley.

Then we’re joined by Pies via satellite from an undisclosed location. Review the Cricket Australia review. As well as catching up with Brighton and how they’re doing in the English Premier League.

Episode 168 – Leading Into The Straight

Jaguars Browns

Well Mad Monday lasted longer than anticipated. The photos haven’t emerged yet. But when they do…

International Rugby League has been happening. We saw a bit of it. There’s been a bit of action off the field and we’re not really across much of it. But we do have time for one of the great Stewpit Tweets of the Week.

The NFL has returned order to the world. The Rams & Saints, Chiefs and Patriots look like the Championship games already. But NFL post seasons rarely go to script.

Caulfield Cup Day came and went. Racing expert Big Zacko runs his eye over a few of the big winners from Saturday. And he has a warning for those who like Thinkin Big in the Derby.

Plus we catch up with a few of the stories in AFL, EPL, NBA and more.

Episode 166 – The Deciders

GF 2018

Pies is back to preview the two big games this weekend. On Saturday it’s the AFL Grand Final between West Coast and Collingwood. And on Sunday it’s the NRL Grand Final between Sydney Roosters and Melbourne. It should be a massive weekend of sport.

But first cab off the rank, and the only sport with an international flavour is Rugby. Our favourite guest Swainy is back to talk The Rugby Championship and the NRC. Swainy is calling a game on Sunday afternoon so catch that game during your Grand Final barbecues!

Finally we wrap up with the NFL. All our teams won on the weekend. The Producer is glowing with the form of the Rams. Pies is relieved the Giants got off the donut. And Big Zacko is sceptical of the Titans record under coach Vrabel.

Episode 163 – Week Three of NFL Previews

Minchinbury Module

In the third and final NFL Preview show we’re joined by Ben Sudderth III of BS3 Sports. Ben is a Cowboys fan but we won’t hold that against him. Have a listen to Ben’s thoughts here, and then check out his own show at http://www.spreaker.com/user/bs3sports.

Then we’re on the phone with Big Zacko to round out the NFL Previews and give our own Super Bowl LIII picks.

Keeping up with the NFL theme there’s some debate in the studio over the #StewpitTweetOfTheWeek.

To kick off the show we cover the final round of NRL, Mad Monday celebrations got a little out of hand for one club and we pick the winners of the NRL Finals.

At the end we rattle home with AFL Finals selections, Soccer, Motorsport and the NRL Supercoach winner in an absolute nailbiter.

Episode 162 – Week Two of NFL Previews

Colbee in Studio

We’re joined by a very special guest. All the way from the USA it’s Zach Bahner of Auctionable Offense Podcast to talk all things NFL. Zach lives and breathes NFL and it’s great to have him on to preview the NFL season.

Our old mate Swainy is back and it’s hard times for the Wallabies. Another crushing defeat at the hands of the All Blacks. Can we see a silver lining to this cloud?

Colbee opens the show previewing the last Masters of Rugby League module at Minchinbury this weekend. Should be a cracking afternoon down at Federation Forest with the first game of the Indigenous Masters team.

NRL, AFL and Soccer are on at the back end of this episode and by then we’d had a few beers. The Producer has another rant of sorts and Pies unleashes on Dragons fans.

Episode 149 – I’ve Got Nothing

Henson Park

The Producer and Pies are back with another exciting episode. Relive the action from Pies’ first appearance as ground announcer at the famous Henson Park.

We chat to Swainy about all things Rugby including the Australian Super Rugby teams inability to beat their New Zealand rivals. And we lament the loss of Penrith Rugby and the Emu Burger from the Shute Shield.

Recap all the action from the NRL. Are the Warriors and Dragons the real deal? Pies tipped a perfect round in the AFL including North Melbourne upsetting Sydney at the SCG. We ponder the question are Brisbane the best 0-7 team of all time? And we tip all of this weeks games.

Plus some very exciting news from the English Premier League, and some less exciting news from the Championship.
