Sportzfan Radio #172.1

@SportzfanRadio now available on iTunes!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.

@SportzfanRadio now available on iTunes!12 September 2010 170.1 – A political discussion starts the program with Daniel finding it hard to work out why, if the Western Bulldogs scored more than Sydney and won the game, why didn’t the Coalition win the election as they scored more than the Labor Party.  The Professor’s reveals that his nomination for the name of the horse the syndicate will be racing is Sir Yorrick.  Dan Butterly talks US sport including discussion of the NFL opening round, the MLB playoff races, the Air Force Academy’s great win over BYU in College football, Lauren Jackson winning another MVP award in the WNBA and Boise State’s fortunes in basketball in the coming season.

Sportzfan Radio Show #164.1

@SportzfanRadio now available on iTunes!25 July 2010 164.1 – The Professor welcomes Stan back after illness whilst Daniel Eade laments at the Aussies appalling cricket effort against Pakistan and Gambo has been for a “roll” on the greens.  Sean Callanan recovering from a bit of jet lag is upbeat about the recent Sports Conferences on Social Media in Australia and New Zealand.  He says sports teams that try to engage their fans get the best result in social media.  He is putting together a Sports Social Media Index for A League teams prior to the season start.  He thinks Gold Coast Suns without any tradition, will keep tweeking the design of their football jumper until they get one that resonates with fans.  The Panel talk about the turf at Etihad Stadium and liken it to an ice rink and conclude something needs to be done from on OH&S perspective before an AFL footballer sues over an injury.  The Gelding talks racing with the hits and misses from Saturday at Moonee Valley and Randwick.  His horse Queen Asa gets another start at Cranbourne but is not confident.  Daniel learns that Kenny Loggins “other” song is Footloose and he thinks maybe Kenny should have been asked to provide a theme song for the Gold Coast Suns.  The Professor and Daniel wonder whether the Melbourne Tigers have done the wrong thing by getting Tommy Greer and Darryl Corletto to break their contracts with clubs playing in the SEABL and Big V competitions in order to go on a pre-NBL season tour with the Tigers.  Gambo is happy “Plugger” Lockett is made a legend at St Kilda and the Panel look at big names the Gold Coast Suns could sign aside from Karmichael Hunt to raise the new AFL team’s profile – Shane Warne and Kevin Rudd are suggested

Coming up on Sportzfan Radio #164

On tomorrow’s Sportzfan Radio you’ll hear Sean Callanan give a wrap of the two Sports Conferences he attended in Sydney and Auckland on social media, the panel will discuss the farcical “fight” in Perth during the week, the Gelding will talk about the winners and losers at Moonee Valley whilst Mark Fiorenti will be reviewing A League teams chances as the season is just around the corner.

With Dalligan away in the US for a wedding (not his own) we’ll talk NRL with Nick Tedeschi…..will we be able to avoid talking Melbourne Storm…probably not!  Plenty happening in the world of sport so make sure you’re next to your radio or computer at midday tomorrow when the Professor, Daniel Eade and Gambo present the best sports show going around.  Don’t forget to tweet discussion topics to @sportzfanradio

Gelding's tips for 3 July 2010

Well, the Gelding had quite a good ‘financial year’ on the punt and is looking to start the new financial year at a sprint.  His attention is drawn to Moonee Valley tommorrow but a word of caution to keep an eye on the weather as rain may be a factor overnight!

The Gelding is sticking with horses he has backed before and all are last start winners so that is good form. 

The bets as always are on an each way and all up basis.

Race 3  Horse 1 – Sunday Rose (for the girls at the Tennis club)
Race 4 Horse 3 – Das Machen
Race 6 Horse 3 – Oak Heart
Race 7 Horse 2 – Ghostmilk (also for the girls at the Tennis club)
PS – Update on Sportzfan Radio’s own Queen Asa – her next start will be at Kimore next Tuesday in a Maiden over 1450 metres (if not balloted out).  A better performance is expected however we are looking to get the horse up to 1600 to 2000 in the third or fourth start this campaign.  It is then that it will be expected to be winning.

Good luck and good punting!
