I bought my copy of the Victory Pack in early 2017. I was more wondering what people thought about hearing a full call of the game in comparison to the original Channel 7 call. I thought I read that Eddie you-know-who was part of the Fox commentary team. Having heard some of the Triple M octo-calls of the prelim, I have always been interested in how other commentary teams called our finals victories of that season.
The only alternative call I have discovered that you can hear in full is a 3AW broadcast of the game (the prelim).

You can hear the full 7 hours of the ABC call through out the day.



I listened to the last quarter on Triple M yesterday and synced it with the actual vision. It was good to watch it with other commentary after listening to the Ch7 commentators at least 30 times

Thankyou, MYOB. That recalls the magic of it all, better than visual.

From memory Knights coped a wack a few weeks later and bled all over the place again - the press of the day overlooked that one

Yep. Remember this well. A male described as Caucasian with dark hair, solid build, about 160-165cm with white line fever and possibly Italian heritage was seen running from Knights' home, seconds after an aggravated burglary was committed at Knights' home where he was assaulted.

Some pasta and meatballs were left behind at the scene but couldn't be linked to identify the offender.

It was also reported the male offender may have ruptured his ACL during the aggravated burglary but he had recovered in time to flee from the scene without being detected.

As if playing for Richmond wasn't enough, Knights blackguarded a Brownlow Medalist. Some just have to go to the very bottom. Knights ended up coaching Essendon. About his only redeeming feature was that he coached them so badly. Keep up the good work, Al

I think subsequent events have shown that no coach can really do much with that pissant club - not legally at any rate.

You are better than me, JS. I can't find a redeeming feature, other than being bad at it, in a Richmond player who blackguarded our Brownlow Medallist and ended up coaching Essendon, even if badly.

And this guy is never mentioned as one of the great small forwards.:rolleyes:
Maybe cause he's one of the great medium forwards. To my knowledge, he is regarded very highly and is always mentioned when assessing the greatest medium forwards of the past 20 years.

Fair enough.

Never see any many lists ranking ‘in between’ sized forwards though so just assumed they were referring to anyone who wasn’t a key forward.


I have seen a few lists which include Daicos as a small forward, and he would be seen as an in-between size so that’s where I am coming from.

Reckon Johnno is way underrated as a player though.
