16 September 2012 264.1 – The Professor welcomes back the Gelding after his holiday on the Sportzfan Radio budget in Hawaii. They talk about the new sponsor DoneDirtCheapdvd.com.au. They also talk about the Southern Football League finals series, the Lingerie Football League, the return of the female roller derby, the finals series in the AFL and NRL. There are some results in from the Hamilton Wildcats in Canada. The Gelding talks racing and the race meeting at Moonee Valley. The Gelding’s favourite sporting moment was watching Makybe Diva win his third Melbourne Cup. The Professor likes the Green Bay Packers winning the Super Bowl and seeing Melbourne FC win the 1964 Grand Final.
7 November 2010 178.2 – The Panel welcome the return of John O’Callaghan and reveals he is a Green Bay Packer fan. The Panel talk about athletes who keep on getting into the news for all the wrong reasons – Favre, Fevola, Warne, Newman. Nicole thinks it is “younger man approaching middle age trying to hold on to youth”. John discusses the AFL Grand Final and thinks it now should be an extra time game and not a replay. The Panel again take Mark Fiorenti to task again about the FFA bidding for the 2022 World Cup and the money that looks like it is wasted on a probable failed bid. Nicole thinks Ricky Ponting needs to get some emotion back into his captaincy of the Australian cricket side as he is too full of management speak. The Panel aren’t excited about the coming Ashes series. The Panel ask Paul Dalligan what Joel Monaghan’s scene is… Paul is enraged about the response and believes people shouldn’t be blaming social media. Paul breaks that Greg Inglis may be going to the Rabbitohs instead of the Broncos. Sean Callanan comes on to talk social media who thinks it was apt that his lead in was the theme from Minder as some pro athletes need minders. He says social media is ubiquitous.
03 October 2010 173.1 – The show starts off with the Panel discussing the AFL Grand Final replay and talk about Sean Callanan’s shimmy caught on camera at the GF (http://j.mp/bKJVwu) which even attracted tweets. The Panel try to decide whether Julie Anthony or Lionel Ritchie were better. Daniel wonders whether Julie was “limp” synching. We talk with Marie Baker about US sport particularly whether the ultimate games in sport should be replayed or subject to extra time. She also talks about tailgating and how big it is in the US and the quarterback carousel in the NFL this season. The Gelding talks about the fields at Flemington and the likely winners and also goes through the Sydney Colt’s selections at Rosehill. Gelding and the Professor discuss Queen Asa and the horse they both have an interest in, Danish Rock. There is a brief discussion about the Fremantle Dockers change to their football jumper and possible changing of their club song. Mark Fiorenti talks soccer and defends the decision for the Heart/Victory game to be transferred to next Friday away from the clash with the AFL Grand Final
The Gelding’s attention like everyone else has been diverted on Saturday to the Collingwood/St Kilda AFL Grand Final replay. Fortunately the VRC decided to move Flemington’s races to Sunday so his attention can now be fairly and squarely on the fields for tomorrow’s races.
As always the tips are on an each way and all up basis.
Race 2 Horse 1 – Altius
Race 3 Horse 1 – Skilled
Race 7 – The gelding has yet to make a decision on this race and likes Horse 1 Shocking, Horse 5 Shootout and Horse 9 Typhoon Tracey (listen to Sportzfan Radio tomorrow to hear which one he eventually selects)
Race 8 Horse 4 – Haylist (for the ladies from the Tennis club)
Race 9 Horse 15 – We’re Gonna Rock (also for the ladies from the Tennis club)
Hear the Professor and the Gelding talk about their part ownership in the 2 year old colt Danish Rock tomorrow on Sportzfan Radio.
Good luck and good punting!
26 September 2010 172.2 – Mordiboy thinks this is a great chance for the AFL to play a night Grand Final. The Professor suggests the AFL could use Mark Seymour for entertainment at the GF replay. Paul says if they used INXS again, ‘New Sensation’ would be ‘Old Sensation’. The ‘F’ word is worried that the first A-League Melbourne soccer derby between Victory and Hearts is going up against the AFL Grand Final replay. He thinks 20,000 will be there to see the game and tips a draw. Mark has jumped off the Heart bandwagon and is heading back to the Victory. In Premier League Mark was surprised Arsenal lost at home to West Brom, shocked Liverpool lost mid week in the Carling Cup and doesn’t look good for Everton on the bottom of the League. Paul talks NRL with the preliminary finals having been completed with the Sydney Roosters belting the Gold Coast Titans and St George getting over Wests Tigers. He will be at the Grand Final next week via a ticket from a friend from another team. Sean joins in from the Royal Show and discusses the problems created for Collingwood and St Kilda by the Grand Final replay and was thrilled to be at his first ‘live’ Grand Final. He also discusses the Commonwealth Games problems in Delhi. Daniel believes if security can’t be improved they should be called off. Paul worries that Todd Carney may miss the Grand Final due to a high tackle. Stan thinks he will get off though as contact was first in the chest region.
26 September 2010 172.1 – The Gelding starts the program with an impersonation of Stan. The Panel then gets into a discussion of the drawn AFL Grand Final and the ramifications of the replay. Daniel says the AFL should give 45,000 tickets to each competing Club. Will there be another Grand Final parade? will there be another Footy Show? will there be different Gtand Finals replayed in the all night marathon? Dan Butterly tells Paul Dalligan he couldn’t watch cricket for five days with no result. Dan also talks MLB pennant race he thinks the Seattle Mariners will probably lose 100 games even with the roster thay have and feels the Yankees will make the World Series again. In NFL, Dan looks at Michael Vick’s re-emergance as a starting quarterback with the Philadelphia Eagles and he thinks Brett Favre is regretting coming back. The Professor discusses last week’s Michigan State trick play to beat Notre Dame in overtime. In NBA, Dan thinks Carmelo Anthony will be traded to the New Jersey Nets within the next 48 hours. The Gelding takes pride in the fact that he and the Sydney Colt from 9 selections at both Moonee Valley and Randwick had a return of 6 winners and 2 thirds. The Panel don’t necessarily agree with the Gelding that you can have a “good seventh” in a race with nine runners. The Panel also agrees that Dr Leslie’s CSA seems to have taken up a permanent position after the racing segment.
With the Grand Final on tomorrow, the Gelding’s attention turns to Friday night racing at Moonee Valley tonight as there is no city meeting tomorrow.
As always the tips are on an each way and all up basis.
A quick look at Moonee Valley tonight , hopefully a favourites night.
