The Dr Leslie CSA is on later than usual in today’s show. The Panel discuss an email on the passing of the late Peter Roebuck and Sportzfan Stan agrees that he was a very good cricket writer. They then discuss 20/20 Big Bash cricket with the Melbourne Stars signing Shane Warne and playing atthe MCG. World Champion Hot Dog eater, Joey Chestnut is appearing at an eating contest in Melbourne although Sportzfan Stan has difficulty believing that eating can be a sport. Paul Dalligan is also on a day off (at a Russian wedding if you don’t mind) so it is left to the Professor to review the Kangaroos win in the Four Nations Tournament over England. The show then crosses to Mordiboy for a live update from the President’s Cup at Royal Melbourne Golf Course and he says the coverage by the media on the event has been amazing.

5 September 2010 169.2 – The Panel talk NRL with Paul Dalligan. He says Rabbitohs supporters are never on the knife edge as they aren’t usually even in the kitchen. He says the Melbourne Storm have really played well and given everything since the salary cap problems. The Gelding likes Typhoon Tracey to win the Horse of the Year award. Sean Callanan discusses the poor crowds at the MCG for both finals matches played so far. Sean believes a lot of it has to do with the way tickets are released to the public and an inability for the public to choose where they would like to sit. He says that “single ticket” sales aren’t handled by the AFL very well. He also discusses the Boomers progress at the FIBA World Championships and wasn’t surprised that they beat Germany. For the tournament to be a success they need to win the next game at least. The Professor and the Gelding discuss Matthew Knights shabby treatment by the Essendon Board and the Professor wonders what ever happened to the review that was to be undertaken.
