Episode 73 - SCF:VfB ... 2:1 and VAR versus Dan-Axel!
In this episode Austin and Hannes join Travis to break down the most recent match, yet another loss on the road.
Despite the sadness, in Part One shout out's are thrown the OFC's way for some positive performances, in particular Sporting Director Doug who won both Fantasy Bundesliga and VfB's TippSpiel ... leading to absolutely no questions of impropriety at all!
In Part Two, co-host Austin breaks down the 2:1 loss - which he sees as a win as he's a Freiburg supporter - from an SCF point of view, and tries his best to give the VfB family something to be positive about.
Sadly, he fails. But he tries!
Hannes returns in Part Three to help out with one of the most controversial aspects of not only the match, but in the Bundesliga in general, as he and Travis try to understand exactly what "blatant" means when it comes to VAR.
News, Headlines, and Questions are combined in Part Four as the guys ask the same big question as last week (what's up with Waldy at Right Back?!) before diving into some new items, like Bruno's confidence in Florian Müller, our confidence in Bruno, and Bruno's confidence in groundhogs. Part Four wraps up with a lengthy look at old friend 'Rino's move to TSG and why so many folks around the league despite the Hoffenheim club oh so much. Part Five roles right into Part Four (or is it the other way around?) as it is prediction time and with VfB hosting one of the hottest teams in the league, the guys wonder if "Win for Wehrle" will be a new phrase that will catch on with VfB supporters around the globe!
Austin rejoins the episode to give some thoughts on the league matches as a whole and Travis is so pleased with this episode that he slurs most of his words through most of his predictions.
To paraphrase what BILD may say, it's an episode with at least four problems - disappointment, mispronunciations, technical issues, and slurred words. Apologies in advance!
