Billy Delivers The Shittest Club-By-Club Trade Analysis

He gave it a crack!

After another bumper trade period wrapped up yesterday, Billy Brownless got the pen out and did some detailed analysis of the big winners and losers.

It's just not very good...

Speaking yesterday afternoon on The Rush Hour, here's what Bill took out of the last ten or so days - keeping in mind he could only be bothered to look at the Victorian clubs:

CARLTON
Nine Giants on their list. Kept Gibbs under sufferance. Was a 7, but because they’ve been mean to Gibbs they get a 5.

COLLINGWOOD
As long as they play all their footy in the forward line and midfield they’ll be fine, but if it goes down back they’ll leak like a sieve. 5.

ESSENDON
Lost Piggy Hibberd. They’ve brought in James Stewart, Jobe Watson, Dyson Heppell and Co. Also kept the number 1 pick, they’ve done alright. 7.

GEELONG
Managed to keep Steven Motlop. 17 clubs wanted him! Well done, Cats. Solid as usual. 8.

HAWTHORN
Lost some experience here. Lost Mitchell, Lewis, Buddy, Peter Knights, Peter Hudson - they’ve all left. Long, long way til their first pick. But they’ve done OK. 7.

MELBOURNE
They lost Lynden Dunn - but they kept Hogan. That was the big one for them. Couple of mature boys here, Lewis and Hibberd will be good. They also got McKenna - don’t think it’s Peter. They’ve done well, the Dees. 8.

NORTH MELBOURNE
Lost Black and Wells - and Brayshaw! Which is a bloody good thing. Three picks inside 33. Were a 5, but cause they lost Brayshaw they get an 8 or a 9.

RICHMOND
Lost Deledio - very, very good player. But I like who they’ve picked up. Caddy - very good midfielder. Prestia - very good midfielder. Not bad by the Tigers, slow early but come good. 7.

ST KILDA
Haven’t lost anyone. Lots of big ins, and they’ve kept pick 23. They’ve done well, the Saints. They get an 8.

WESTERN BULLDOGS
Lost a few players, but they get Cloke and Crameri next year. We’d forgotten about Crameri. First pick 18, they get a 6 or a 7. They’ve been alright.

WHO WON THE TRADE PERIOD
1. GWS - premiership favourites.
2. St Kilda - I really like what they’ve done.
Honourable mentions - the two Perth clubs. They’ve done well.

BOTTOM THREE
1. Adelaide - did nothing.
2. Port Adelaide - did nothing.
3. North Melbourne

Billy Brownless Gets Stuck Into James Brayshaw On Instagram

"Flog"

Triple M’s own James Brayshaw hasn’t been afraid to flaunt his Eurotrip on Intragram!

JB kicked off his travelogue with a photo inside an Etihad first class lounge before traveling to cities in Croatia and Germany.

The postings have become all too much for JB’s Rush Hour co-host Billy Brownless

Last night JB posted an image of himself enjoying a nice pint in an English Pub which prompted a one word response from Billy…

“Flog”

JB was quick to reply: "Piss off Fat… I’m busy".

Billy didn't back down…

“3 beers will do u!! Shit Howie has been good on the Rush Hour”

Billy Brownless Accidentally Drops Massive Gary Ablett Rumour

Did the King of Geelong let something slip?

A very interesting exchange unfolded on Triple M’s Rush Hour this afternoon surrounding Gary Ablett Jnr

After asking Jay Clark if there were any trade whispers involving Ablett, Billy Brownless became very reluctant to talk about it.

 

READ THE TRANSCRIPT HERE OR LISTEN BELOW:

BILLY: Are you hearing anything about Gary Ablett Jnr?

JAY CLARK: Whispers have been going around all year. I think it’s unlikely a move back to Geelong. But I think all the people at the Cats would have him, how they’d fit him into that salary cap I’m unsure but I think everyone at Geelong would love to have him back, including you (Billy).

MARK HOWARD: Bill is tapping his nose here like he knows something? Have you got something for us or not?

BILLY: No. I just think he’d like to come home at some stage. Like tomorrow.

MARK HOWARD: Can they squeeze him into the salary cap can they?

BILLY: No they can’t.

JAY: Will he take a $500,000 pay cut Billy?

BILLY: Probably not. But he’d love to be back in Melbourne.

Billy Brownless Roasts Isaac Smith On Instagram

THE KING OF GEELONG!

Billy Brownless took the opportunity to snap a quick selfie with Hawthorn star Isaac Smith over the weekend.

Big Bill famously kicked a goal after the siren in the 1994 qualifying final to sink Footscray.

And he certainly let Smith - who missed the shot against the Cats - know about it!

"There's only one difference !!!! I kicked it!!#gocats #bagluck Hawks #gopussies," Billy wrote.

People were quick to defend Smith in the comments: Smith:🏆🏆🏆 v Billy Brownless 🍩.

There's only one difference !!!! I kicked it!!#gocats #bagluck Hawks #gopussies

Chief: Hawthorn Desperately Need Both Bens

The latest from the Wednesday Rub.

Jason Dunstall says Hawthorn “desperately” need Ben McEvoy and Ben Stratton to return for Friday night’s clash against Geelong.

Stratton hasn’t played since injuring his pectoral muscle in Round 20.

Ruckman Ben McEvoy was a late withdrawal with back soreness from the Hawks final round win over Collingwood.

“They (Hawthorn) desperately need both of them,” the Chief said on Triple M’s Rush Hour.

“I think Stratton is going to be OK, I haven’t heard anything to the contrary,”

“And Benny McEvoy is extremely important as well.”

Peter Hitchener Opens Up About The Judd/Jones Attempted Kiss

Here is how Hitch saw THAT moment.

The doyen of Melbourne news Peter Hitchener joined JB and Billy on the Rush Hour this afternoon.

High on the agenda was the incredibly awkward moment that unfolded between Tony Jones and Rebecca Judd last Monday.

“I think that was all a bit of a joke that took on a life of its own. I don’t think that was ever intended,” Peter told JB and Billy.

“It was just a spur of the moment thing. They’ve had a few on-air jokes earlier on in the year.”

Peter went onto say how much he enjoyed the photo of Chris Judd and Tony that was posted earlier this week.

“Look at the look on Tony’s face. It’s so funny,” he said.

“He (Tony) is terrific. He really takes a joke well.”
