    Ryan O’Connell and Brett McKay return this week for episode two of The Cheap Seats Podcast.

    In this episode, the boys show their lack of cricket knowledge, discuss Brett’s tweeting habits, and reveal Brett was the lone fool who didn’t vote for LeBron James in the NBA MVP ballot.

    Episode 2 talking points:

    • Israel Folau’s emergence as a legitimate rugby star;
    • In light of Digby Ioane’s decision to quit the Reds, the worth of modern day sporting contracts and the professionalism of football players;
    • The Australian one-day cricket squad for the ICC Champions Trophy, and the Australia A pre-Ashes tour squad;
    • The AFL blockbuster this Friday night between Essendon and Geelong;
    • Along with this week’s quick ‘Splash and Dash’ on NBA playoffs and the V8s.

    Stay cheap!

      Great work guys very enjoyable while mowing the lawns. Would love to see two a week or an hour show- it felt too short for me, maybe just greedy due to a lack of good sports radio ( choices in the US are amazing.) keep up the good work

        Cheers Wilson, thanks for the comments. length is always an interesting discussion, and we’re very conscious of overstaying our welcome in people’s ears. If you’re saying you want more, hopefully it means you’ll tune in again next week! We’ll take that as a win 😀

        I can’t believe Brett got his wife to steal Wilson’s profile and then post that he wants a longer podcast.

          I can’t believe they didn’t moderate your joke about Brett’s wife complaining about length…

      Thanks guys, just had a listen now, very entertaining.

      I’m a bit like you with Chad Sayers, knew he’d taken a few wickets for the Redbacks but didn’t know anything more about him so punched his name into Google while I was listening, and…

      …the third suggested heading was “Chad Sayers Injured”, which I guess explains why the NSP are so interested in him…

      Again great work gents.

      However you’re going to give poor of Chad Sayers a complex!

      Also in relation to the polarising figure Mitchell Johnson….Have you seen any of his performances in the IPL?
      Rumours has it (and I can’t confirm or deny as can’t find anywhere to watch this…Bloody BCCI…don’t get me started) Mitchell has been swinging the white bowl around like Wasim Akram!
      Currently sits 4th on the wicket taker list and would actually be 1st if one Keiron Pollard didn’t have the grace of spilling 3 catches 3 balls in a row of Mitchell, while bowling to Mike Hussey! You got a get a look at the video of it…Hilarious stuff!!!!

      Anyway look forward to next weeks cast
