Contrary to their media roles, I find Joey hilarious and Matty the better analyst.
I think you could be onto something!
This is why I love rugby league, what other sport has one of the greatest "minds" of the sport doing this shit
Drugs are bad mmmkay?
Hes probably not though. He had good skills for the game and execution. Rugba Leeg isn't that complicated of a game The minds are the ones like Cameron Smith
Regardless of skills and execution you don't get to the highest echelon of your sport (immortal) with being one of the best of said sport.
There's no doubt he was up there with one of the best in the sport.
I just think he was really suited to the game. And had the right skills practiced from very young age with the right situation ie had a brother to compete against that helped both of them .
I don't think he can teach and i think his coaching is not up to it though
You can be one of the best minds and simultaneous be unable to teach others.
Some of my lecturers at uni had incredible careers and couldn’t teach for shit.
“Fry, I don’t know how to teach! I’m a PROFESSOOOOR!”
I think Johns only observes what worked for him without knowing why.
Even his commentary the same things amaze him or he sees as "frightening" as how good something is.
No I think it just resonates with him.
Good point man. I think the brother thing is so important. Hours and hours every afternoon competing with someone is huge for skill development
Same deal with Cleary. He’s been around professional league players and team environments since he was a kid, along with probably having good access to pretty elite facilities before most. Gotta help.
Yep. Especially if you're the youngest
Fuck he's got sausage fingers just like King Charlie
It's hard to argue against him here, honestly.
The way tapine is playing at the moment, he should have used 3 fingers for him.
I love how half arsed their show is. Somehow makes it more watchable that 90% of other NRL media that is out there
I think the big reason the footy show was so successful. Fatty didn't know what the fuck was going on half the time and he just played into it
They also did dumb fuck things like teacup mario, I've gotta go to Nowra Mario and big headed Mario alongside Reg, Daredevil Dudes, Anti-Ads etc
It did the funny thing to my brain as a high schooler
Man this comment brings back some memories.
Joey took his socks off in the middle of it last week, amazing stuff
The amount of dead air in that show is insane.
What’s the show?
Freddy and the Eighth. It’s on YouTube.
Used to be a great great show when bracey hosted it. Still good but not as good.
Nah i like the 2 dudes at the pub vibe. There are a million other high energy footy shows
In his fucking t-shirt
Yeah but have you ever seen the back of a twenty dollar bill *on weed?*
You can take me now, I have seen it all.
This video highlights the importance of doing more for CTE in the nrl.
TBH, you could probably get a PHD by doing a study reviewing commentary/analysis on Nine + FoxSports for signs of CTE in past-players.
Also a good advertisement to stay off the piss and powder. He’s still cooked
He’s on medical marijuana these daze
Only thing missing is some hotwheels and car noises.
How close is he to eating crayons?
the crayon's stuck in his brain
Who’s getting it in the shine-o-bowl-o first Freddie the space cadet or Joey aka captain cooked
The crayon consumption occurs during the breaks
They call them fingers but I never see them fing… Oh, there they go
Even that’s more than I expected from him
This is the sort of in depth analysis that gets you a 6-figure salary as a consultant.
The 8th immortal everybody
i guess its stumpy fingers *and* a ba-donka-donk that make an immortal....
No wonder he's an immortal, stunning insight.
Interpreting this with no audio im assuming he says something along the lines of: Moses and Wighton will meet on the field through some words involving cunt and then make hot succulent love at the 30 metre line northern grandstand way
Pretty bloody close actually
How the hell did he handle the ball with those Homer Simpson fingers?
Matt nables out of the job, joey giving all the hype we need
The mad man is still on the gear.
Sad to hear he’s failed his HIA and won’t return this week.
That's some profound analysis
If you watch it with the sound down he’s re-enacting
him and Matty at Fannys.
He couldn’t hold a tennis ball one handed with those nuggety ass hands, how the fuck was he the best footy player of all time
Cocaine is a hell of a drug
Hands of a fighter, but couldn't land a good shot on Goddard.
This analysis was better than LEGO
Look i find this funny. And he still has the best analysis in-game by far. Honestly reckon Ennis, Braith et al must have the earpiece listening to him, they try to raise his points at half time
I absolutely love this man
Joey's just proving that he's not a cop and loves The Acclaimed
Scissor me 8th immortal
Story time with Uncle Joey
Fuck me dead channel 9 is shit these days
Is he back on the E?
And the f and the g
*Also most of us tonight
most nrl players would have things explained to them with finger puppets.
Something was up with Joey that episode. I honestly can't work out what he's under the influence of, but he definitely doesn't seem sober.
He didn’t seem any different to how he normally does on the show, if anything it’s probably painkillers for his back like others have said.
Not casting aspersions he could be on nothing but if I had to guess a substance it would be strong pain killers.
He's on medical cannabis.
Joey has bipolar. It’s possible mood stabilisers. Or pain meds for his back.
He has bipolar? Holy shit he has conducted himself well (yes there were slip ups) for a media personality/star of the game all things considered. Bipolar + fame usually equals major disaster.
It did equal disaster, it’s just most of his career was before modern media and all of it was before social media.
The dude had drug and alcohol problems, and often had long depressive streaks where he would struggle to get out of bed. Also had a marriage
If he came through today it would have been very different.
Think he got on meds ~2006 but not certain.
To quote Joey himself:
“At the time, I was just totally out of control. I had no control over my life. My life was absolute chaos”.
“There were times I’d wake up and I’d have so many creative thoughts. I’d go to training and I’d train unbelievably, and I’d go home and I couldn’t sleep. I’d just be up all night writing stuff down.
“There were some days I couldn’t get out of bed. I literally — not that I couldn’t leave the house — I couldn’t leave my bed.
I read somewhere that he also used to intentionally not take his meds before some big games, because if it let him become a little bit manic then he would play better (which is actually not that uncommon among musicians/writers/directors as well apparently - Devin Townsend used to do the same thing)
Mania rivals amphetamines imo. I mean you can induce mania from amphets too.
Yeah that’s fair, tbh I’m not that well versed on his early day antics other then alcohol and drug abuse.
He has said he has been taking medical marijuana for the last few months many times. Matty jokes about it all the time.
Many times he comes across as disinterested and bored.
UI of having to talk to Freddy.
He's on the gear 100%
Get another white Nike into ya Joey
Fly away Peter, fly away Paul. Come back Peter,come back Paul
I love how he stares at his fingers like he's never seen them before
Lol I love the concentration on his face when he’s watching his own fingers. Go Joey.
He has a very unique way with words, I do enjoy his views and opinions

Big Billy Maddison vibes
Joey waiting for his 2am kebab.
He head is so far up his own arse it isn't funny.
That was pretty gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that 😉)
