The Festival Of The Boot

The Festival Of The Boot is the term coined by "Rampaging" Roy Slaven and H.G Nelson for Grand Final weekend.

As usual Roy and H.G. will be doing the commentary on ABC News Radio for both the AFL and NRL deciders.

Even if you don't care about either game, the duo's commentary is always highly entertaining.

Listen to it online here, or check your local analog frequency here.

My predictions:

AFL - Being a Perth boy, my heart says the Eagles will win, however my head says it'll be the Hawks. Four GF's in a row is the sort of experience that's hard to beat, however the Eagles will make them earn it.

NRL - Another close encounter with the Cowboys being just a bit too good for the Broncos.

Don't forget, turn the volume on your telly down and listen to Roy and H.G. call the games the way that only they can.

    I'd like to see the Cowboys win the NRL.

    Don't really follow the AFL.

    I think that was probably the best NRL grand final I've ever seen. Amazing game.

    So glad for JT and the Cowboys.

          That's the only part of the Herald Sun that's worth reading. Except for the comedy section (Andrew Dolt's column), which is hilarious in a laugh at him way.

            Ok, this is getting into religious territory, so enough said.

            Andrew Dolts,.....you mean the AFL field with a water sprinkler on Mars, l agree that was pretty funny!

    They're always good for a laugh.

    Looking back at my predictions, I got both right, except for a close one in the AFL. I shoulda had some money on them. Oh well, there's always next year.
