Without going back and getting direct quotes, during the Carlton Show he would sometimes go in quite hard at players, coaches and especially club administrators when he had strong views about whatever the topic was they were discussing at the time. I certainly didn't always agree with his views, but I respected him having his opinions and expressing them in a public forum.

Contrast that with his sycophantic refusal to critically examine anything to do with Essendon during the drugs saga, probably due to Tim Watson being the co-host on Sen am show at the time. He was like this with a lot of other club related chats where I felt his interviews never touched any sensitive topics.

These were just my impressions of the guy.
you are spot on.
They are the incoherent ramblings of a man who is in constant fear of losing his job.
It’s the first time he’s missed a shift on The Front Bar. This could only be because he would deep down know that possibly, quite possibly, the show might be ok without him.

Funny you say that. He was used on sen ads recently sounding heavily sick with the flu but for tropper ignored all health request to stay at home and not work. Even if he was at home, he shouldn't have been used during these times.

He just swore on air during the Stars vs Sixers game.
Not a big deal as he said “sh*t” but FFS, can’t we expect a base level of professionalism from him?
The inane ramblings, the constant speaking in cliches and the elongated, going round in circles questioning are bad enough but now he can’t even commentate without swearing.
