AFL from LA

https://youtu.be/zqxd2Nek2Zc Zak Butters is the best player in the competition. Look, I love Nick Daicos. I had him at number one. But Butters is the complete footballer. Elite skill, two-way running, will to win, and tough as. He had Libba the legend scratching and clawing at him and he still found a way. Butters may look like my high school English teacher, but I think the Brownlow is his to lose. Hello, friends. Welcome back to AFL from LA. I'm your host, Cindye. I am standing across the street from Akbar, which is a local favorite here in Los Angeles. Pride month is in full swing, and as you can see behind me, they are lining up to get it.  Hawthorn v Brisbane Brisbane Lions, if you're sick of hearing about how you can't win at the MCG, here's an idea. Win. You guys haven't won a home and away game there since 2014. Talk about kryptonite. Brisbane's lack of defensive run was on full display again. Lazy. Apart from Josh Dunkley, it looked like the rest of the midfield was perfectly happy to win contested ball and then stop for a flat white. Full credit to the young Hawks, though, whose transition from back 50 to forward 50 was absolutely blistering. I'm loving young players like Newcombe and Worpel, who turned the game around in the second half. Once again, the knives are sharpening for Chris Fagan. I mean, he's a class act, but I do not see how he's gonna survive another failed run at finals. Damien Hardwick, anyone?  Sydney v St. Kilda Thursday night football is back, folks. The game was a great advertisement for rugby, cricket, curling, pretty much any other sport other than Aussie Rules Football. A big congratulations to Buddy Franklin, who played his 350th game. But Saints Defender Callum Wilkie crashed the party like a drunk uncle at a wedding, keeping the champ to only two goals and just six disposals. The Saints, led by Owen, Phillipou, and Wanganeen-Milera, brought a level of pressure that the Swans just couldn't match. It seems like the Swans have escaped the scrutiny of the media this year. They were grand finalists last year, and they have completely fallen off a cliff. I think they have Carlton to thank for that. Poor Blues. Fremantle v Richmond I thought Richmond weren't supposed to win close games? That's now two in a row. What does caretaker Coach McQualter know that Hardwick didn't? Are we now calling him Andrew McClose-one? But seriously, Shai Bolton. What a second half. Maybe the most clutch performance I've seen all year. The pressure from both teams was huge. It was a much needed pallet cleanser to the Eagles replay I had to suffer through. The Tiger's ability to weather the Docker's first quarter pressure was impressive. And Freo's second half comeback had me jumping up and down in my seat. And how awesome was it to see Dustin Martin and Nat Fyfe lining up against each other in the middle? Bolton, Martin, Taranto, and Prestia. They were just too good. They relished the conditions and they took the pressure to insane levels. And how the hell do you beat a team with Martin and Bolton playing that well? But I think the most head turning thing was seeing the free kick count at three quarter time. Richmond only had three free kicks. Are we saying that one team only infringed three times during three quarters? And in those conditions? Maybe I'm just an American still learning the game, but I'm struggling with the umpiring this year. I hate to criticize, cuz I'm sure they're doing their best, but man, has this game just gotten too hard to umpire? Or is there just too much room for interpretation? Let me know.  Western Bulldogs v Port Adelaide 10 in a row for port and nine in a row at Marvel. Are we now calling it Marvel-aide Oval? Ken Hinkley has gone from untenable to 10-in-a-row-able. What a game. I mean, with 10 minutes to go, it was anybody's. But once again, Butters, Rozee, and Horne-francis found that gear. The Bulldogs were super competitive,
