I gather that's why they didn't do the Australai game the other night, but both stations were doing it last night, albeit Macquarie was off the tv here in Melbourne.

Ha ha.

It was early in the coverage of the opening game of the World Cup when the alarm bells started to ring in the studios of Melbourne’s two sports radio networks. Macquarie Sports and SEN had both purchased the broadcast rights for cricket’s one-day extravaganza in England through an Indian company Sports Flashes.

But with each ball that was being broadcast it quickly became apparent that the commentary they were receiving was from a couple of Indians sitting in their garage.

After some frantic phone calls it was revealed that the broadcast they were receiving was “illegal” because their Indian distributor had breached its rights agreement with the ICC. Apparently a dispute over money with a fellow Indian company had caused the problem which they failed to pass on to radio networks around the globe who were expecting their feed.

SEN is now using an international feed provided by the ICC while Macquarie Sports is covering Australian games from its Melbourne studio with a commentary team including Darren Lehmann, Brad Hodge, Darren Berry and John Hastings.

Former Australian spinner Brad Hogg was also caught up in the Sports Flashes debacle. He’d been hired as the company’s anchor for the World Cup coverage and knew nothing about the rights issue when he arrived in the UK. Luckily Hogg didn’t have to turn around and come home as he was able to find some work with another broadcaster.

Which player used a stats loophole regarding tackles to push his case for selection? We hear the move backfired when his club studied footage and exposed the rort of being the token late second man in - which was being classed as a tackle.

Credit to morning team. Brian Goorjian interview. IT was lengthy and full of substance. Fantastic insight into how China operates in terms of team training.
The guy is absolutely fantastic to listen too IMO

Embarassing for Hutchy, looking for the absolute cheapest product available.

The alarm bells must have been going off early for Hutchy when Najvot and Bish didn't do their live reads for Tobin Brothers Funerals and the Family Peace Foundation.

Thanks for putting that on here.
I was one of the unfortunate ones who heard the opening game commentary and was wondering what the hell was going on. They didn't even bother to describe each delivery.

Would have got him pre helmet days . The other is easy if your not blinded by his persona as a good guy , apparently .
Sounds like you know him pretty well. Think we can read between the lines. I think if you met and spoke with him your opinion would change.

He's not a threat.
