20 February 2011 190.1 – Sportzfan Stan makes his presence felt calling for the coach of the Wollongong Hawks Gordie McLeod to be sacked for losing 10 games of eleven. Phil Cleary comes on the show to talk about the VFL & Coburg. The club would have difficulties if the alignment with Richmond ceases at the end of this season. He says with some AFL teams fielding reserves teams it will make things hard for the non AFL clubs. He says it has been a disgraceful history starting with the abolition of the VFA. He says the VFA teams were bullied into changing the name and sold a lie about their future. He says that the majority of the non AFL clubs would not be able to survive by themselves and a long term strategy should be developed to align each club with the community in their area. Phil says he would be eminently well qualified to be on a Board running VFL football but he wouldn’t be asked because he wouldn’t bow to what the AFL wanted (we agree with Phil!). The Gelding comes on to talk racing and talks about the retirement of SportzfanRadio’s own Typhoon Tracy. He says the trainer Peter Moody didn’t call him to discuss what should be done with the horse. The Gelding picked two winners and three fourths, one of the winners being Black Caviar. The discussion then moves to the production meeting held at the Great Western Hotel (our sponsors). We get a tweet for the Gelding asking if he is ‘light on for balls’. Mark Fiorenti comes on to talk soccer and says he also has trouble with twitter but he is going to try and get on it before the end of the year.
The Gelding’s attention turns to VRC headquarters this week for the Cup Carnival. Unfortunately, it looks like being a bit wet overnight and tomorrow so punters make sure you take note of weather conditions and the horses that like the wet track.
As always the tips are on an each way and all up basis.
Race 2 Horse 8 – Moudre
Race 5 Horse 6 – So You think (for the ladies at the Tennis club)
Race 6 Horse 1 – Retrieve
Race 7 Horse 2 – Typhoon Tracey (also for the ladies at the Tennis club)
The Gelding’s horse Queen Asa is also running at Kilmore in Race 4 on Sunday.
Good luck and good punting!
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.
