LOL yeah it was ordinary, he tried to sound like David Atenborough doing a doco . He should just speak normally, or does he always speak like that?

My routine is so boring. I barely make it out of the shower without thinking about the shi*t of a day coming up.

I need to get my act together.

Will join the list of admired footballers given a job in the media who failed.

Doug Hawkins...succeeded for a while before laughing madly wore thin without anything funny happening.
Paul Couch. Just used to sit there and smile.
Glenn Archer. When given a cue to say something would put on a defensive face that would be offended at anything.
Mick Maguane. Would explain what was going on in a monotone.
Peter Daicos - is he still in the media? Thought he was OK.

Always felt for big Dempsey who had something to say but his voice had been affected to badly by the bushfires.

Lenny Hayes better get his gig in the media before his already prepared job at Channel 7 is recinded.

And here's another one that belies the ridiculousness of the rubbish that was put in front of him in the OP.

Articulate and passionate with Judith Lucy.

Seems like a top bloke.:thumbsu:

good footballer. one of the gutsiest and ballsiest. boring bloke though. definately not someone i'd be mates with to be honest or if he was a mate he'd be one i'd be in touch with very infrequently, especially if he rammed that sh*t down my throat.

Don't feel too bad, Kirk probably has a fair bit of time in the mornings to get his routine together probably works about ten to twelve hours a week for a seven figure salary. I have to cram my yoga, meditation, and beach swim in between the two minutes I have from a shower to making toast.

Don't get me wrong though, great footballer and seems like an all round nice guy.

You've got it easy.

I get to do the day's lunches and get my kid's uniform ready.

And then groan at Karl and Fordy's mate-mate-mate-mate routine.

That's how i felt when listening to his routine.

I would love to Meditate, do yoga and swim every morning.

Valid bump, the sheer cringeworthiness of that piece by Kirk can never been overplayed. Long may it be remembered as a reminder to football television producers everywhere.

Right up there with the worst pieces of television I’ve ever had the misfortune of viewing.

Has anyone read his book Braveheart: Lessons learned from life ?

Is it just as whacky as his intro ? :D
Weird book. It's a pop up book and every time you turn a page Kirk's head pops out of it and tells you to be at peace with yourself.

I'm a better person since reading it though.

Still think meditating is just a fancy word for vegetating.

Arch recently revealed that while he was on FC he wasn't following footy at all. He was reliant on a 15 minute brief from Lyon before every show :D

I really don't understand why he tries to memorise a script word for word before these tv appearances.

Surely his little tribute to O'Keefe would have sounded much more heartfelt if you didn't sense him robotically searching for the words he'd memorised every 10 seconds.

An imperfect but more natural sounding speech is a lot better than writing the perfect script only to sound like a Z-grade celebrity on an infomercial when you try to deliver it.
