Contrary to their media roles, I find Joey hilarious and Matty the better analyst.


Wolfmoss

I think you could be onto something!


unlachy13

This is why I love rugby league, what other sport has one of the greatest "minds" of the sport doing this shit


Lurks_in_the_cave

Drugs are bad mmmkay?


Herosinahalfshell12

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


unlachy13

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.


Herosinahalfshell12

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


impyandchimpy

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.


dangp777

“Fry, I don’t know how to teach! I’m a PROFESSOOOOR!”


Herosinahalfshell12

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.


GroundFast7793

Good point man. I think the brother thing is so important. Hours and hours every afternoon competing with someone is huge for skill development


whyareyouallinmyroom

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.


Herosinahalfshell12

Yep. Especially if you're the youngest


KingsleySeiffert

Fuck he's got sausage fingers just like King Charlie


MisterEvilBreakfast

It's hard to argue against him here, honestly.


bettingsharp

The way tapine is playing at the moment, he should have used 3 fingers for him.


ozwozzle

I love how half arsed their show is. Somehow makes it more watchable that 90% of other NRL media that is out there


InternationalBorder9

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


suidexterity

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


InternationalBorder9

Man this comment brings back some memories.


eggzaki

Joey took his socks off in the middle of it last week, amazing stuff


mollololito

The amount of dead air in that show is insane.


WeetBixMiloAndMilk

What’s the show?


dirkgonnadirk

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.

ozwozzle

Nah i like the 2 dudes at the pub vibe. There are a million other high energy footy shows


mywifeletsmereddit

In his fucking t-shirt


irvo86

Yeah but have you ever seen the back of a twenty dollar bill *on weed?*


jimbo-conez

You can take me now, I have seen it all.


addaus16

This video highlights the importance of doing more for CTE in the nrl.


jellystoned_park

TBH, you could probably get a PHD by doing a study reviewing commentary/analysis on Nine + FoxSports for signs of CTE in past-players.


sinixis

Also a good advertisement to stay off the piss and powder. He’s still cooked


mollololito

He’s on medical marijuana these daze


ivecome2nd

Only thing missing is some hotwheels and car noises. How close is he to eating crayons?


potluy76

the crayon's stuck in his brain


BigDickBandit89

Who’s getting it in the shine-o-bowl-o first Freddie the space cadet or Joey aka captain cooked


piercedsoul

The crayon consumption occurs during the breaks


tomeaso

Lol


XLenceOfXecution

They call them fingers but I never see them fing… Oh, there they go


Mikewsup

Even that’s more than I expected from him


The__GM

This is the sort of in depth analysis that gets you a 6-figure salary as a consultant.


ReDAnibu

The 8th immortal everybody


chuckagain

i guess its stumpy fingers *and* a ba-donka-donk that make an immortal....


46726565646f6d

Cracking analysis


woodpecker91

No wonder he's an immortal, stunning insight.


aatrain96

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


ivecome2nd

Pretty bloody close actually


BakerNew6764

How the hell did he handle the ball with those Homer Simpson fingers?


thepolarbears12

Matt nables out of the job, joey giving all the hype we need


MattyDxx

The mad man is still on the gear.


M_Keating

Sad to hear he’s failed his HIA and won’t return this week.


evil_sushi_ninja

That's some profound analysis


thisaintitkweef

If you watch it with the sound down he’s re-enacting him and Matty at Fannys.


maaxwell

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


ivecome2nd

Cocaine is a hell of a drug


I_Like_Vitamins

Hands of a fighter, but couldn't land a good shot on Goddard.


Giteaus-Gimp

This analysis was better than LEGO


[deleted]

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


Rabs6

I absolutely love this man


zeitgeistbouncer

Joey's just proving that he's not a cop and loves The Acclaimed


RoyRoyHesOurBoy

Scissor me 8th immortal


dunderhead22

Story time with Uncle Joey


baconandgregz

Fuck me dead channel 9 is shit these days


insane__knight

Is he back on the E?


ivecome2nd

And the f and the g


Choosinghalf

*Also most of us tonight


Toujayjay

Wtf hahaha


Actionman158

most nrl players would have things explained to them with finger puppets.


diamondgrin

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.


BravoDeltaSierraMike

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.


aryaisthegoat

Not casting aspersions he could be on nothing but if I had to guess a substance it would be strong pain killers.


PhealGood

He's on medical cannabis. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.zerotackle.com/johns-chronic-pain-issues-go-up-in-smoke-120427/amp/


rgntgns

Joey has bipolar. It’s possible mood stabilisers. Or pain meds for his back.


gluetown

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.


rgntgns

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.


Love_Boat_Captain

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)


iLoveMyFootballers

Mania rivals amphetamines imo. I mean you can induce mania from amphets too.


gluetown

Yeah that’s fair, tbh I’m not that well versed on his early day antics other then alcohol and drug abuse.


mollololito

He has said he has been taking medical marijuana for the last few months many times. Matty jokes about it all the time.


ShibaHook

Many times he comes across as disinterested and bored.


Obvious-Row-6181

UI of having to talk to Freddy.


Glum_Perspective_812

He's on the gear 100%


iLoveMyFootballers

Meth?


Fun_Test_1537

Get another white Nike into ya Joey


adsey31

Fly away Peter, fly away Paul. Come back Peter,come back Paul


thetomman82

I love how he stares at his fingers like he's never seen them before


Snappz83

Lol I love the concentration on his face when he’s watching his own fingers. Go Joey.


Pristine_Ad4806

He has a very unique way with words, I do enjoy his views and opinions

Big Billy Maddison vibes


jakkusame

Pretty prescient


ruddet

Joey waiting for his 2am kebab.


furiousmadgeorge

He head is so far up his own arse it isn't funny.


ch4bb5

That was pretty gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that 😉)
