Last year, when it was time for Whateley the journo/news reporter to stand up and be counted over the Essendon peptides scandal, disappointingly, he proved he was just another company man who played it safe and did the bidding of his Fox Footy & AFL masters.His well publicised grilling of Hird is proof in point that Gerard can ask the tough questions and he is always the consummate professional; credible, unbiased, insightful and intelligent.
This pretty accurately sums up my thoughts on this issue too.Since Clinton Grybas is no longer available to call and discuss all things AFL, Whateley is probably the next best. Thankfully doesn't shout and carry on and can discuss issues without repeating himself.
All true and that bad that I’ve actually gained a respect for Robbo this year. He speaks from the heart and exposes Whatelys agenda almost on a nightly basis. The way he dismisses him though... I don’t know how Robbo didn’t chin him tonight.What business are we talking here? The business of looking down your nose being condescending and thinking you’re better than everyone else and your opinion is the most important because your co host is a muppet?
