I've never heard a conversation about footy or cricket that I haven't wanted to join in immediately. If you disagree with me, you'll be made to work very hard to change my mind!

Racing fans can’t wait for Saturday afternoon at Moonee Valley, when the most eagerly anticipated Cox Plate for 15 years is run, but the Group 1 action starts the night before with the running of the Manikato Stakes for the sprinters.
The build-up to the Cox Plate is always special, but we probably have to go back 15 years to find something similar to the lead-in to Winx vs Hartnell, when Northerly and Sunline clashed in 2001.
The Caulfield Cup is one of the great races on the Australian calendar.
The Caulfield Guineas is one of the hallmark races of the spring, the original classic for three-year-olds over 1600m. Coupled with the Thousand Guineas, as well as two other Group 1 races that we looked at yesterday, it is a marquee day of the Melbourne spring carnival.
We are right in the thick of the spring carnival now, with racing getting clear air away from the AFL and NRL footy codes for the first time.
The indomitable spirit of the Western Bulldogs has served this finals series well, but all that is coming to an end on Saturday, when they will be dogs to the slaughter against the Sydney Swans.
