IN TODAY'S AFL Daily, star journalists Damian Barrett and Nat Edwards tackle all the big news after another dramatic day in football.

In this episode Nat and Damo take on the falling Hawks and the impact president Jeff Kennett has (and is having) on the club - including some of Jeff's "media diversions" and smokescreens.

Damo and Nat also put the spotlight on Carlton coach David Teague and how he categorically denied  - and in the process came across as unnecessarily dismissive - a newspaper report that suggested Patrick Cripps was not playing with a fractured back.
