People always make comment when I tell them my name.

A first timer's trip to the Bathurst Supercars

It was my first time to the town. We loved it.

Cheers

Very much so. The walk back was a real effort.

That’s a lot of words for something that won’t happen. The adage goes, “spend time on the things you can control”

My plan for the future of Formula One

We got great pics. Can’t wait to go back.

To answer your question. No, nobody cares.

Does anyone care that Macarthur are a decent football team?

No. We don’t need drug dealers in the game.

Jarrod Mullen: A rare case of a deserved second chance

I’m not suggesting we give them out. They were once part of our society and cricketers have them. Hence I asked the question.

Three Australian cricketers who deserved a knighthood

He works all over the world and is in high demand. If he was hopeless he wouldn’t get the work. Where’s Michael Clarke on TV these days?

It’s a pity Waugh has priced his book out of the reach of most. $249 for a picture book is a bit steep for most.

Many think Botham is a bogan. Many of the West Indian knights are confessed Rastafarian and many music knights have a long drug history. So your point is what exactly?

Say what you like, but I love watching English Premiership rugby. Tough footy and its on Fox.

English rugby is leading us back to the light (no, really)

I think the more important question is will anyone be watching. One game of Super rugby free to air and yet another subscription to watch the rest. Interesting times ahead.

Will the Waratahs taste Super Rugby success in 2021?

I met Frank after a Socceroos game at Parramatta Stadium in the late 80’s. I still have is and Frank Farina’s autograph.

Vale Frank Arok: A man ahead of his time

Correct to an extent. They never trained as a team and trained in groups. A bit hard to gel in conditions like thistle I’d imagine.

Watching cricket in COVID times

No one knows yet.

New era in rugby broadcasting to begin on Nine

It wasn’t a comparison. It was a way to pose an example of what I was outlining.

Do titles matter to the GOAT?

Cheers. I appreciate the support.

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 6, the winner is...

Thanks for the comments. I agree that being a team in a capital city helps. On that metric Newcastle and Canberra should be rich even though they are a 1 team regional team.

Cheers.

Cant answer that but he played his junior footy at Old Bar.

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 6, the winner is...

I agree.

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 6, the winner is...

Well said.

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 6, the winner is...

No idea what that means but at least I got you to read all 6. Cheers.
