If you're an athletics fan here for the Beki Smith chat about the Commonwealth Games, skip ahead to 1:27:00. We've tacked it on at the end of the show.
There were plenty of woeful performances over the weekend. But because a bloke used some dirt attached to some tape to scuff up a cricket ball, we never heard about any of them.
While the rest of Australia were outraged by the ball tampering issue, The Producer and Pies were watching the rest of the poor performances on the sporting field.
If the Parramatta Eels, Western Bulldogs, Ashley Klein, Bats and Balls NRL Supercoach side and many others thought they got off scot free, they should think again.
We're here to add balance to the rest of the terrible weekends taken off the back pages by the Cameron Bancroft, Steve Smith and the Australian cricket team leadership group.

Big Zacko was ousted from the Podcast Board even though he had more votes.
Here's the 2018 AFL Preview Show. Complete with published author and Swans fan Dr Erik Nielsen. We discuss each team and give our Top 8, Premiership, Brownlow and Coleman predictions. No surprises, GWS are in the thick of it.
Then we lament just how bad the Eels are. How they can't possibly turn it around inside a week. And how the rest of the NRL are performing.
And we make some much needed changes to our Supercoach team ahead of the First Head 2 Head game against our arch nemesis BJ.

Big Zacko and Pies have cracked it after one game and couldn't be bothered turning up. Colbee fills the void and returns with a whole new set of names to mangle. If it wasn't bad enough for Sione Katoa to have a broken jaw, now he gets to hear Colbee talk about him all episode. Join us on this rollercoaster of pronunciation which includes such greats as Andrew McCullough and Viliame Kikau.
Plus Brendan and Colbee discuss this season of Masters of Rugby League, Supercars, Test Cricket in South Africa and of course how bad Colbee is at Supercoach.
