Surprising that whatever happened (the disagreement or whatever) last year has caused BT to leave The Rub, wouldn't you cater for him rather than Bill playing the dumbass or Damo who doesn't even really break news anyway?

In case anyone's interested, the Midweek Rub is now only on their app and podcast

Yeah nah, Montagna doesn't really fit in. He lacks personality, isn't funny, and is far too, nice, humble and polite. :tongueoutv1: Ah well, I suppose they've got spots for Baz Denner-like straight-guy callers

I was listening yesterday to the first half in the car, but missed the 2nd half.

I was really hoping they might podcast the Noah Balta "bit" - which they've done today. BT's style still defines Triple M when he's on form and doesn't have the shits. (He was on air with Barrett this week, so the air might be clearing a bit. BT also had the shits with Brownless too though.)

I had a quick listen to the pod, and I think they missed the funniest part that I heard in the first half:

"There's a DOG on the field! Oh wait, it's just Noah Balta's seeing eye dog."

That whole passage was very funny, (and long: if anyone knows NW subs, I reckon I travelled from Military Rd Avondale Heights to well past Melton during the running gag :p )

Can anyone fill me in on what happened between BT and Billy?
Brownless was going on about how BT didn’t make the 1990 GF, and how he plays second fiddle to Bruce at Channel 7. And BT gave it back to him about his GF losses and no impact. But Brownless kept giving to him and by the time the quiz came up he walked off.

Dane Swan is a close second.
He’s just boring and not even funny

Which is quite hilarious given BT released his book hanging sh*t on Lethal & his teammates mere weeks after that Grand Final win

Which is what sparked the World According To The Cool Breeze

BT can obviously handle people taking the piss out of him but Bill is just incessant, with poor timing and generally unfunny. He thinks everyone loves him as a piss head dopey bastard but is finding out that it’s not the case

I remember that happening but just thought it was all a bit of theatre. Not a huge fan of BT as a commentator but did find him funny on The Rub. Billy comes across as an affable idiot.

BT seems a bit sensitive to me love him but over the 18 years I’ve been listening to MMM there has been a few times where he seems to love to give it and not love the taking it. He seems to get over it reasonably quickly though.
He seemed to love seeing Bill
