    Like Ted Whitten. Hated the thug. Lou Richards was considered a knob by the WA public. The WA commentators were who we grew up with. George, Frank Sparrow, Percy Johnson when listening to the games on the radio.

    It's a shame that those who gave as much to Australian Football as those in Victoria are forgotten.

    Didn't want to create a thread but I've not been to Perth ever (I know shutup) but on a 7 news segment I saw with Fyfe giving Basil a tour of the new facilities I'd noticed the anchor woman said "Coburn" even though it's spelt COCKburn.

    Wtf is up with that? Why name it COCKburn and call it "coburn" ? Is that how you pronounce it over there?

    Because it can't be pronounced the same way as the condition Bruce has commentating Cyril Rioli.

    "A few future AFL players here - Callaghan's boys are very good"

    Yeah that'd be just our luck after he finished with 95 games for us.

    I watched that and had a few impressions. It's a lot of trouble to go to. Being a docker is a huge life commitment. They are almost live in. I read the other day that people who were taking a 30 minute nap during the day, tested happier and more functional. Fyfe doing the rolling exercise at the end looked relaxed.

    Lols. I like the bit where he reminds everyone how good essendon are and it is understood freo beat them. Then it's a reminder that gws were lucky to beat richmond and so were we. Out of all the teams west coast is the worst. I think he's for real.
