Jordan De Goey ‘has become a frightening footballer’

"There's no match-up for him."

That's the verdict from Bob Murphy on Collingwood's Jordan De Goey in this week's Real Footy podcast.

In one-on-one contests, De Goey can either outmuscle opponents or beat them with speed, and with the faith of Collingwood's midfield behind him, he's a huge concern for opposition sides.

And De Goey may have already well beaten the best potential opponent for him in Dylan Grimes.

Meanwhile, the pressure is on the Bombers but the Essendon board must back John Worsfold this season. And when they come up against fellow strugglers Melbourne on Friday night, who will need the win the most?

Also this week: The Bulldogs "swarm" is back, the team looks cohesive, and while it's too early to call, there are great signs that we could see the Dogs return to their form of 2016.

We also talk rules and umpiring decision, and Eddie McGuire's on-air comments about Cynthia Banham's coin toss on Friday night.

All this plus whispers about Sam Weideman's contract, a salute to the Saints and the Lions for their 2-0 starts to the season and we wrap the AFLW grand final and the incredible Erin Phillips.
