It's one of the strangest stories in NTFA history, but Bridgenorth Football Club and Scott Morrison have become two peas in the competition's pod.
Since visiting the club on the campaign trail in May last year, Australia's Prime Minister has formed a love affair with the Parrots which has now continued, speaking with club stalwarts Bobby Beams and Justin Ketchell as well as Rick Fontyn on Parrot Park Radio.
"When we did the first episode, we started five weeks ago, we just thought that in this current situation, people couldn't really catch up and we wanted to keep everyone in the footy club community connected and communicating, so we thought 'let's do this and we can relive some old stories,'" Beams said.
"So we did our first episode and the feedback was pretty good and then we said well we had the connection with the Prime Minister last year, so why not ask the question - the worst they can do is say no.
"We asked the question and after a few weeks, we were able to get it across the line."

With Morrison and the legendary Parrots duo chatting away on all subjects from coronavirus to rugby to the whereabouts of two of Ketchell's prized Bridgenorth hats, Beams took the time to reflect on the craziness of the club's friendship.
"We never predicted it would have turned out like that ... when they came to us last year and said they were going to make an announcement, someone major will be making it and it just changed everything.
"The notoriety that came with it and he formed that bond with J-Rod Cirkel, the fella with the big mullet, and then he came back for the grand final with his family and just enjoyed his time.
"I know, talking to Bridget [Archer], they'd had a big campaign last year and it was in the last week that he came down, and at the end of the campaign they were tired, they came down and we didn't go out of our way, we just did what we do at Bridgenorth and welcomed everyone in with open arms and they enjoyed their night.
"He's even said that it was one of the best nights of the whole election campaign."
Pledging to support the club with much-needed drainage and lighting upgrades, which has recently been confirmed to the tune of $250,000 while visiting last year, the Prime Minister's Bridgenorth connection seemed over.
That was until the Parrots reached the NTFA's grand stage, with it then revealed that Morrison promised to fly across Bass Strait if the club did so.
"Once we made the grand final, the word came out, is he going to come back down? And, yeah, he did. The whole family came along and he mixed with supporters in the wet area, tossed the coin on grand final day and just really enjoyed it - shame we couldn't get the win."
Morrison's chat with Beams, Ketchell and Fontyn can be found on Bridgenorth's Parrot Park Radio YouTube channel.
