Jockey Michael Walker was hit with one of the largest fines in the Melbourne Cup’s history ($10,000) after he was found to have used the whip 12 times on runner-up Prince Of Arran - seven times more than allowed - before the 100-metre mark.
That’s what I feel like doing to the Tigers at times!
Do people seriously still have a problem with this 30 years later?
Mate, I’m still hanging onto what Darcy Lawler did to the Magpies in the 1963 GF LOL. And reading Jack Gibson’s book a coupla years back didn’t help. Jack was a prop for us and worked with the big bookies. Common knowledge between them Lawler had backed Saints. (Wests had beaten them in both rounds plus the major semi. I was only 13 but went to the 4 games).
Still remember when (the late) Rebecca Wilson from the Telecrap was on the Footy Show panel one night.
Sterlo (and others???) wouldn’t even acknowledge her or comment on what she said. He just stared straight ahead the whole time. Can’t remember if it was over something she wrote or if they just didn’t want her there.
Off the subject a bit but I reckon it’s time Rabbits gave it away too. Making too many errors, using useless, minor stats all the time and his “news” is all common knowledge from the papers.
