Rate Show

A refreshingly different and unique perspective on australian rules football by a super fan that's only been following the game for a few years in a country where AFL is barely even been heard of let alone played. Instead of the usual banal unfunny banter you hear on many AFL podcasts, on this podcast you get polite speculation and rhetorical questions inviting listeners to contribute and give feedback as the host raves and marvels at the greatest and most dynamic team sport in the world played by the greatest athletes in the world in front of some of biggest crowds in the biggest stadiums! I encourage everyone to listen and give feedback and help this Yank on his journey to learning more about the game and fully appreciate it's greatness.

Good stuff

Great podcast, consistent with analysis and content, but above all- extremely listenable. Keep it up from a cats fan in geelong


Great podcast for an American novice or a seasoned Aussie! Craig has a passion for the sport!

A Yank’s Footy Journey

I love Craig Wessels. I don’t know if footy is his escape from being a long-suffering Cleveland sports fan or he’s just having a mid-life crisis, but this public school teacher by day becomes a Geelong super-barracker in the wee hours of the night. That said, he is a huge supporter of all footy, including AFL, AFLW and USAFL. I don’t know where he finds the time for it all, but I’m glad he does.

Great AFL podcast

Craig doesn’t just focus on his beloved Cats, he touches on all that’s going on in the AFL and his passion for the sport comes through loud and clear. Great Aussie rules podcast that is informative and a fun listen.

Great Listen

In real life I am suspicious of cats so it makes sense I guess that in AFL terms people who barrack for Geelong make me edgy. Craig won me over with the mea culpa episode. I am a 23 year member of the Dogs, no idea what it is like to support a club like Geelong. I do however know the feeling of this is going to be a tough match. No Dog supporter would ever be mad at a fellow supporter for doubting the club. In fact when I first started to support the Dogs an old timer yelled at me for saying we can win this week. When the Dogs lost it was my fault. Despite the tremendous cultural differences between Cats and Dogs supporters Craig is one of the good ones so have a listen.

Great Footy Pod from a fellow American

I recently became a Roo supporter & was told to listen to this podcast. After a couple episodes of listening to Craig it helps me learn about my new favorite sport! Keep it up mate
