A very important part of footy news when i was growing up...A sad day! Somebody you could trust with the news, nobody like him today!

Few good stories going around today. Good one about him calling the SANFL in 1990 to get a few quotes about Port Adelaide leaving for the AFL.

He actually didn’t know at the time that Port had done the deal with the AFL in secret, behind the backs of the other SANFL clubs and in violation of a pact that no SANFL club would break away without agreement or before 1993. So he’d inadvertently blown the whole thing open.

He got a few quotes, none that were printable however.

Outside of the dulcet sounds of Diesel and Hunters and Collectors his was the most recognisable voice of AFL of the burgeoning AFL era with the scoops around the grounds. Vale, a treasured memory of many nostalgic AFL fans :(

How did media ownership work back then?

was Herald-Sun journo, right? But appeared briefly on Channel 9 Sunday mornings? All very vague memories.

Mentioned above he was a Pies fan, but I never detected any bias? unlike todays conflicted mess...
