    I'm pretty sure Megan Hustwaite on SEN referred to Ben Simmons as "The Big White Hope". WTF? :D

    Female newsreader on 3aw: "Luke Hodge's former Hawthorn teammates say there's no hard feelings following his deflection to Brisbane"

    Last week on the SEN breakfast show they were talking about brushes with fame. Someone rang in to say that they got close to Jimmy Page, and Garry Lyon said, "who's he? I've never heard of him." Tim Watson replied: "What? Are you serious? He's the lead singer of Led Zeppelin"

    Tom Morris on 3aw says "Trevor Honns" and pronounces "Corio" as "COReeoh", emphasising the first syllable.

    Campbell Brown, talking about the Suns: "How long can the AFL keep pouring money into a club that's seamlessly going nowhere?"

    Ha! Have you heard Campbell Brown talk much? He's no Iron Stine, at least when it comes to speaking. :D
    He did another ripper last year on Triple M, but I can't remember what it was. It's on here somewhere

    That one really gets to me, I get an angry twitch when I see it. It is an even worse one than their/there/they're because they don't even sound the same when you say them! FFS
