The National Curriculum

School is back in session. Join a rotating collection of some of Australian football’s finest brain thinkers in Joey Lynch, Nick Stoll, Nick D'Urbano, and Josh Parish -- as well as some special guests along the way -- for The National Curriculum.

Every week, the TNC crew will look back at the week that was in Australian football and bring you the best analysis and opinion in Australian football. No cow is too sacred, no topic too taboo, or figure too untouchable to be spared the wrath of Good Football Takes™
