How good’s this Monkey gate, fly on the wall thing with Gilly, Roy & Binga.
It's a good segment, but it's pretty infuriating hearing Symonds speak about how he felt guilty about causing the whole mess and dragging his mates into it. Hard to believe that in the 2000's someone has to feel guilty about expecting to not get racially abused.

I'll watch the monkeygate show at a later date but do they touch on the controversial umpiring in that game?
Yep, point out that it was possibly the catalyst that caused the frustrations leading to the events that happened.

Having just watched it and seen howlers that went both ways, it really makes me appreciate the modern day DRS

Am I imagining this or was there a caught behind off Dravid where he literally missed the ball by roughly 6-8 inches?

Was a little closer than 6 inches but yep, Dravid was given out caught behind in the second innings when he clearly missed it.

4:52 in this video is what you're referencing, just after Clarke defended the indefensible on his part.
M Clarke: "I was only 27"

Oh dear.

Also, Adam "I'm So Pure Because I Walked" Gilchrist didn't over himself in glory by appealing for that catch.

I like Chappelli, should enjoy him on Crash's 'Cricket Legends' show but I've heard many of his stories before. I'd love it if Crash could get Bill Lawry on his show.

Chappelli’s opened Pandora’s box.

The animosity was common knowledge, but this is dynamite.

I know Craddock can be a bit of a flog, and for some reason people seem to have turned on Whateley, but I really enjoy having the hour of Cricket 360 at the close of play. It’s the show I never knew I needed til we had it.

Of course having such a compelling series helps the show a lot.

Came into the thread to post on this show which I'm really enjoying. For me it is highlighting the chasm between Craddocks and Robbo's performance on AFL360.

Crash has eloquent delivery, behind the scenes tidbits that arent common knowledge and help the viewer have an understadning on issues from the players perspective, and generally very succint and insightful opinions on the actual game related talk (technique, captaincy etc.)

For me it is really highlighting how poorly Robbo does in the same role.

God help those listening to the Heat vs Hurricanes match on Fox
I tried watching the Heat v Strikers match. Admittedly the game was a total bore, but after listening the Symonds going on for about 2 overs on how to cook a turkey, I just gave up. Self indulgence is all very well, but I don't think it will ever replace entertainment.

This Crash Chappelli interview is another doozy.

and he’s right into Sir Donald.
There's a lot of history between Sir Donald and Chappelli going back many years. There was a lot of bad blood between Bradman and Vic Richardson that Chappelli touches on, and feels Bradman always had it in for him because of his grandfather. We all know Bradman never voted for Chappelli as captain of Australia but he was outvoted by other board members, plus Chappelli and Bradman were at war over player payments.

I remember Chappelli's comment that Bradman was more responsible for the advent of World Series Cricket than anyone. Greg Chappell had many battles with Bradman as well when he was captain of Australia.
