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.
21 June 2010 159.2 – Fiorenti continues discussing the fortunes of the Socceroos and gives his opinion on some underachieving countries at the World Cup, Paul Dalligan highlights the AFL leading the NRL 2 to 1 in the racism stakes, is disappointed at the state of NSW rugby and believes the Cockroaches will make changes and go for youth in State of Origin 3. He also suggests the Professor’s Canterbury Bulldogs have picked up a likely player in Trent Hodkinson (now with Manly) who kicked two field goals late in the game to help Manly down the Rabbitohs. The Panel looks at the AFL’s suggestion of the 2012 18 team league being broken up into Conferences and Sean wonders whether that may prevent Collingwood from ever playing Carlton in a Grand Final again.
21 June 2010 159.1 – Stan, the world’s oldest radio apprentice gives the AFL a rest in his rant this week and has the FFA fair and square in his sights at the thought of paying our next soccer coach up to $6 million. Dan Butterly talks US sport particularly the musical chairs of NCAA conference realignment, NBA Championship game 7 and whether Kobe Bryant would have been the MVP of the finals series even if the Celtics had won, whether Tiger Woods can win the US Open from 4 shots back and his thought that the World Cup will end in a draw. The Gelding calls in from the track at Bendigo where he has a runner, Queen Asa, going around. He had a great day at the races on Saturday tipping 3 winners and a second. In the ‘F’ word Mark Fiorenti muses on the problems of parking the “bus” with flat tyres and Sean informs listeners that parking the ‘bus’ is a real soccer tactic.
13 June 2010 158.2 – a search party is sent out for Mark Fiorenti… the Professor and Sean discuss Steve Strasburg’s debut for the Washington Nationals and wonder if the “Stras” has tried to do a deal with Don Smallgoods… the Panel discuss World Cup coaches that look like James Bond villains – Pim Verbeek won hands down, while where at it tackling the big issues- Pim change your hairstyle…it is bad hair day for you everyday! Fiorenti says bidding for the 2018 World Cup has damaged Australian soccer’s credibility… Dalligan says Gold Coast will have no room to hide Karmichael Hunt on his poor showing in the VFL yesterday and NSW to beat Queensland 16-10 in State of Origin 2.
Until next week blow that VUVUZELA 😉
