Feel like this may have been an orchestrated 'retirement'.. Same week as Fox Sports got rid of Russell Ingall I guess they are organising their contracts for winter sport and Sandy Roberts wasn't part of their plans?
He was great on World of Sport in the old days. Walked in and fitted in perfectly with the maniacs in there, even though he'd grown up on SA football and may not have been 100% on all the vfl history.
Obviously wasn't as good in recent years.
That’s the problem - he’s remembered for that shit line and the Gary Ablett one when he literally wasn’t able to describe the genius of the great man and so he said nothing.
The games been far kinder to him that he has been to the game
He’s another example of a plethora of sports commentators who for some reason go beyond the retirement age and seem protected.
The only exception is Greg Miles who gracefully left our airwaves genuinely at the top of his game.
