I don't like Whateley's stilted, pompous-sounding delivery. It sounds like he's come from the ABC School of EENOWNSEEAYTEEENG, where they drum into you to the 1950s style of broadcasting, where you must make the absolute most of every syllable, and if there's not enough, add a few extra ones, ala Criag Willis, or should I say, "Craig-ah, Willis-aaaah, from the AFL-ah Grand Final-aaaaaaah"

Same here mate
Despite what some of us have said in the past about spud being on sen, I'm sure many of us in here feel like we knew him by how much we have seen and heard from him in the media over the years. Frawley wore his heart on his sleeve and he was passionate about footy and this came through. Listening to the sen this evening and watching fox footy now it's hard not to get emotional. Our heart goes out to his wife and daughters, extended family and his friends. I feel for Lyon and dunstall tonight.

I feel awful for my opinions on his media appearances now.
Why? They were your honest opinions at the time. Stand by them.

My honest opinion is that Gerard Whateley helped to stir the Australian mouth-breathing public into a frenzy which saw Smith banned for 12 months.

The greatest batsman since Bradman and we missed twelve months of him in his prime due to flogs like Whately and his mouth-breathing listeners.

Anybody who called for Smith to be banned ought to be tarred and feathered before allowed to attend another Test on Aussie soil.

Whateley especially.

But if smith wasnt banned he would not have achieved the unparallel heights he's scaled the past month in the ashes.

I think he's talking about Spud, who copped a lot of flack on here
Yeah and I am saying if his criticisms were valid then, they are valid now.

Unless dying prematurely suddenly makes people better at their job.

If Whateley died tomorrow it would not change my criticisms of him one iota.

(Naturally I wish Whateley good health and fortune, I don't wish harm on people I've never met...

...although I do wish a good tar and feathering for Whateley and his mouth-breathing followers who wanted Smith banned)

I do stand by what I said but I think it's just a natural human emotion to regret negative things you've said about someone when something bad happens them, especially in these circumstances.

The station has handled it brilliantly . Slobbo's comments in the paper this morning were a disgrace saying SEN was not for him.

He's not fat anymore. Harsh to call him a bitter fat prick especially given you've stuck up for other SEN personalities when they've been attacked by other posters.

Yeah, it felt like Whateley's rant was about himself rather than spud.
