Ol' mate Damian Watson copped a dodgy caller on the Overnight Show last night after midnight.

Caller said he was on the road and just crossed the SA border, then made a series of totally contradictory points about Eddie McGuire, and then tried to slip in the infamous WHAT'S THE FUNNIEST SMELLING THING IN THE WORLD prank joke to Damian.

No flies on Damian, who managed to dump him in time!

ah well, if he's paying Whateley 400 grand (as Eddie guessed one day when he had a crack at Hutchy), and Derwayne a similar small fortune, I suppose he wants to cut costs in other areas, such as the news room. I dunno where they get those greenhorns; probably university media faculties, as we've speculated on here
he did cut cost? did not pay the night time staff the correct wage and got pinged by fairwork the fooking a-hole

Exactly! ^ It seems as though the SEN newsroom has been run on a 'tight' budget for ever. Speaking of which, who's the new weekend guy with the smooooooth voice and millennial accent? :tongueoutv1: Joe Boaz, or something like that.

I find the attitudes towards Margaret on here quite appalling. Is it her age? if so you are a disgrace and disrespectful.....is it because she's a woman?....if so, again disgraceful and disrespectful..

She obviously loves most sports and can talk more knowledgeably about them when she rings in than the majority of callers I've heard..... she apparently comes from a sporting family, is a widow who listens and watches sport to fill in her days/nights....

....very much the same as my mum who is 89. She watches the races nearly every day, loves the footy, tennis and golf. She can tell you all the relevant details of those sports..it keeps her mind active.

Like Margaret she can hold a good conversation about all those sports....because of those interests it keeps them alive, interested and alert, a purpose to get up, something to look forward too.....instead of just sitting in a chair staring at the walls, feeling lonely and waiting to die..

You guys should be hoping you are as alert as they are when and if you get to their age...

If thats the attitude you show in your day to day life, then no wonder the world is stuffed.

Would love to see you lot in your old age, see how you are faring.....I hope it slaps you a good one.

I enjoy hearing Margaret and so do quite a few others.

What if one of the disapproving posters here is female also?

She's no different than all the other regulars who call in, some also every day/night..
I’ve never disrespected Margaret, I have however commented a couple of times when she goes off script, i.e when she basically said Serena Williams is too fat to wear such tight playing outfits, or when she mentioned she is not a fan of women’s football and hates seeing the girls fighting.

I agree with Bedford, the concept would work if it wasn’t every bloody week!
It is cringeworthy at times at the moment, like with Hutchy saying “Good morning sweetheart” every bloody time!

I don’t mind how they take her to the Boxing Day Test, but FFS why the hell did we have to hear about it for weeks beforehand, just quietly take her to the bloody cricket!

It has truly just gone a bit over the top in my opinion, that’s all I’m saying.
What started off as a good little segment here and there is now just being force fed down our throats week in week out. I think some people are just getting over it, that’s all.

Boaz,lol that would be right,the 2 pillars of Freemasonry,Joachim & Boaz...its probably not even his real name,
just them(the station owners) using theyre occultic symbology and rubbing it in our faces :sick: :sick::sick:

I don't mind Margaret, as you said she is very sharp for her age, and I hope that I'm traveling that well if I make it to that age!!

I think it's better when she calls in of her choice - and speaks about whatever is on her mind at the time - rather than being interviewed as "talent", where she's required to have a view on everything.

Fair enough and I agree about the "good morning sweetheart" part, it is off putting.....but thats not Margarets fault.

...also agree with Margaret, Serena's backside is way to big in the tight stuff she wears! I also can't get into the AFLW, just doesn't grab me, neither do I like to see them fighting but then again, I don't like to see the men fighting in games either...

I usually come here in peace, but I do get upset when a lovely, cheerful, alert 90yr old is ridiculed and called names.

...end of rant, cheers:)

All ive ever called her was Old Mate , i really don't remember anyone abusing her . It's just the whole thing like she's put up as an expert on everything . She's probably a ripper if you met her . I would abuse Trout though

The interview with Hardwick this morning was good and when he said that's enough on the personal stuff they dropped off . Then at 1pm we have Pipe replaying the personal bits and none of the footy talk , it was disgusting to replay it.

Nah, it's because she's quite ordinary/not particularly interesting, yet somehow has a weekly ~8-minute spot on one of the station's most popular shows, plus other lengthy moments when she calls other programs. You said it yourself: "She's no different than all the other regulars who call in, some also every day/night. " :thumbsu:

She's only on there these days because it gives Hutchy the opportunity to seem like a top bloke with everyone hearing how "nice" he is to her. He obviously thinks it's good for his image.
Someone could argue that Trout From Woodend (or a bunch of other regular callers) should get a similar spot because he's funnier and knows more about sport. What's the difference? The difference is that it's much better PR for Hutchy to seem caring to a sweet old duck.

She was mildly amusing when she first started calling in to shoot her mouth off at Malthouse, et al, but the novelty wore off ages ago. She's a case of small doses being fine, but bigger doses being crap, and no amount of Hutchy's fake laughing at almost every word she utters will make change that :grinv1:
