The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

The topic of conversation, raised by the hosting CEO himself (an ex ANZ CEO also), was that if he could have his way he would list human workers on a version of the stock exchange for buying / selling / trading.  Just like a commodity.

I believe this has been tried before. Not exactly a stock exchange but similar ... more like an auction block.

A prominent nation fought a war over it and ever since, the practice has been frowned upon. (Even though it still persists in pockets around the globe.)

It was surprisingly easy. They have a huge resale market in the USA so got tickets through Ticketmaster resale a couple of hours before the game. Pretty cheap all things considered too.

Those are brilliant seats, can't wait to head over and catch a game one day. Never had an interest in going to the States until I got into the NFL about 8 or 9 years ago. Unfortunately I jumped on the Jets who have been putrid ever since I adopted them after their playoff win in Foxboro.

there is more philosophical depth in one of my most erratic bowel movements , more profundity,and more wisdom, than their entire year of economic output. And that's being generous.

 

Agree. Many here should buy an internet capable radio and tune into BBC Radio 4, or ABC Radio National’s ‘Big Ideas’.

They might then immediately realise how basic/limited these SEN bozos really are.

Every. Single. One. Of. Them.

I tuned in to SEN today at 3.24pm and got 6 minutes of adverts....Riveting stuff. I have set the dial to listening to podcasts and audio books until the football season starts again

cricket football and tennis were the big sports items back in the radio halcyon days. you shouldn't compare it to radio nowadays.

btw i have little interest in professional tennis these days 

Agree. Used to love it. Loved the diff types of players with my favorites being the serve volley players. Also liked players with a good touch. Too much power tennis these days

I don't understand why anyone listens to the radio anymore. Terrible music, non stop adverts and banal or far right hosts. Podcasts and iPod for music for me.

Hang in there Dr. 

I adopted the Seahawks when I Iived thereabouts in 2006. 

Watching them win a Super Bowl (unfortunately on TV as I was back in Oz by then) was a small sliver of what I would feel if the Dees scooped a flag.

My wife supports the Pats for no other reason than she recognised Brady when I started watching ("he's married to Giselle"). She loves her football as well though not as fanatical as me. She's seen 2 Superbowl wins with probably a 3rd next week. She's also seen 3 Cats flags after adopting them shortly after coming to Australia in 2001. I'm still hoping the worm will turn and I'll see some success..... someday

Gerard Whateley is the best thing that has happened to SEN, it's just a shame that the rest of the station is trash.

I am still in shock that Lyon is their breakfast representative. 

Seriously he is the antithesis of breakfast radio in every way. 

Whateley’s audience could double with the correct lead in program

I suspect that the only reason the breakfast crew and KB are still there is because the have  contracts that would be too expensive to buy out.

I think Craig Hutchison's Crocmedia produces Footy Classified for Channel 9. If that's correct, it would seem Hutchison likes Garry Lyon given Lyon was on that show for many years.

Hasn't Lyon quit Footy classified (or perhaps was shown the door) ?

I listen to SEN podcasts from time to time without ads, so much more enjoyable than tuning the dial. If you had the mobile data or work connection, you could easily load up all SEN shows and listen to them within the one day, you'd just be listening with a 2 or 3 hour delay, or however long they take to upload each show.

I must be the odd man out. I like Gary & Tim, Gerard, Maher, and KB and Doc. I also like Hutchy, Pickers and Doc on Saturday morning.

TT I think it is time to review your life while I agree with you on a couple of those the rest are IMO the pits particularly that Saturday show. I have not listened to it since the morning "pickers" was lecturing someone on morals. That was it for me.

His wage is $883,752 a year!!

I don’t understand why everyone is taking the station’s financial decision so personally.

Hitchison has made huge decisions to enable his company to ultimately make a profit, and the sacked ,underperforming ‘talent’ were not part of his vision, no more, no less.
