They must have been calling from the studio, as in the pre game both Mark Howard and Jay Clark were saying things like the Hawks taking on Carlton “down there in Launceston” and “it looks like a sunny day down in Launceston today”.

The picture above also looks like you can see the heritage listed NAB building in Clarendon Street, South Melbourne in the background (which is across the road from the MMM studios.

I reckon it’s a bit simpler then that.

Lyon is funny.
Carey is not.

The Pluck a Duck segment is s**t too.
Spot on. Duck is the least funny Saturday rub member ever.
Bill I like on the rush hour but he's too slow to get involved in the banter.

If they could p**s off Carey and bring back Spud or Chief it would instantly improve as BT and JB have to carry all the humour.

Should be a separate thread on Mark Howard.
The guy makes my ears bleed. .
He's worse when he tries to be serious and emotional. Some of the 'serious' crap I've heard from his Howie Games Podcast makes me feel a bit crook. He puts on a croaky voice, almost like he's about to cry, like Neil Mitchell sometimes does

The Rub is nothing like it was at it's best with Lyon & Frawley, but I still go back and listen to the podcasts when there's been news about (like with Brad Scott.)

The fact that they've been playing the same Jane Kennedy/Mick Molloy promo for over a year - that was never funny to begin with - is a shocking indictment on their show and on the station. This (along with SEN's plethora of ads) is why I so rarely listen to commercial radio any more.

I spent a lot of today driving, so I heard a bit of the Triple M coverage:

- they weren't at all subtle about not being in Townsville. They spoke about being in South Melbourne (ie. the studio) during the rub.
- Chua wasn't on today, he managed to get himself into the North Melbourne premiership reunion.
- coming back from half time they talked about Bill being back from the marquee, so maybe he was in Townsville? Unlikely though.
- you could tell during the coverage that they were calling off the tv - it's brazenly obvious when they're making errors and showing surprise at things that wouldn't happen if you were calling from today.

Yes, after one of the breaks, BT was looking at a tv screen when he asked if play had resumed, and JB goes: "no, that's a replay." :D
He obviously wouldn't have experienced that 'confusion' if he was at the ground.
