Message: Peter Mckenna commentating during a Hawthorn game in the 1980's " You know if you put Peter Hudsons head on Michael Moncrief they'd look the same." Merv Hughes (I think) doing some guest commentary on channel 9 with Ian Chappell when a batsman is struck in the most sensitive of areas, other players gather around for support and Ian Chappell says to Merv "You've been known to give the odd bit advice to batsmen, any words of wisdom ?" "Yeah, don't rub 'em, count 'em" Class act that Merv, can't understand why he didn't get a long term contract ?
"If it was a set play, they copied it from a Portugese bus time-table!"
Healy: Word is this guy is the most reliable kick for goal in the side. They say down at Collingwood if you had to have someone kicking for your life, Tarkyn Lockyer would be the man >Commetti: Id prefer my mum >(silence) >Commetti: Not a great footballer, but at least she'd care. > > >"Ashley McIntosh, like a good hair spray...capable of a subtle hold"
>"The Magpies ought to be kicking themselves right now, but with their luck, they'd probably miss."
>Dennis: King to Ling >Dermott: Just forward of the wing >Dennis: Don't you start!
>Tony Liberatore had just gone into a pack as he is wont to do and come out with blood gushing from his eye: "Libba went into the pack optimistically and came out misty optically."
Dermott Brereton says "and here's Kickett with the ball"
Commetti: "No Dermott, it's Troy Cook" Brereton: "Sorry, they look very similar" Commetti: "Why is that Dermott?" Brereton: (realising that if he said because they were both black would sounds racist) "err..." Commetti: "Yes, that's right, because they're both midfielders!"
