    Or anything else that people say that you find funny, stupid, annoying, pretentious, etc.

    I was gunna start another thread for jargon, etc, but I can't be stuffed.

    ----------------------
    We all know how articulate footballers, coaches and commentators can be, well.... :D

    Here are a few classic verbal slip-ups..


    Michael Voss: "for all intensive purposes......"

    Allan Martello: "the problem, or the bonus contention seems to be....."

    Brian Taylor: "The Wayne Carey, Ricky Nixon saga will go down in the analogues of folklore history.

    Chris Judd's manager: "let me tell you a short antidote about Chris"

    Terry Daniher:" I hope the planning through the week comes to fruitician on Saturday"

    Leon Neon: "Yeah, I tooken that mark......."

    All that seems to say is that you think it's a huge laugh that your English is better than some ignorant footballers!

    It is. :)

    Dermie is by far the spoonerism King someone should give him a dictionary. The other one that sh@ts me is "Boom Recruit" - is that a recruit that is going to explode in sixty seconds. I would have though it was BOON recruit

    Dermy is the king of the tautology:p

    The best/worst one I heard from him was:

    "they move the ball laterally sideways across the ground'

    Surely can't go past Michael Tuck at the Night Grand Final handing out the "Michael Tuck Medal":

    "And the Norm Smith goes to:"

    hehe, I like that. Reminds me of (I can't remember who, years ago):

    "He was running around like a head with its chook cut off"

    Actually it was deliberate. I use it now and then - keeps people on their toes and you get some interesting double takes :)

    Re: Verbal Faux Paus

    What about Sandy Roberts on 4 quarters that krap channel 7 friday night program. They had the band Chocolate Starfish on and he introduced the show by saying something to the effect of:

    "We will fry the fish [paul salmon], cook sausage rolls [goals] and eat a Chocolate Starfish [a$$hole]"!!!

    The guys on the show spat it in shock and spent the next five minutes crying in laughter with Sandy going wildly red in embarrassment. The crowd of families with young children looked on in bemusement.
