Everyday scenes from the Whateley household:

 

Gerry. Did you pay the power bills??? We just got a disconnection notice!
Hmmm ... this could be an indication that we'll be without electricity. An uncertain future for the warmth and comfort of the Whateley premises. We'll keeping checking in and see how that pans out.


Gerry, the school called today and said Delilah steals lunch money from the other kids.
Hmmmmm ... the counterpoint to this is that the other kids are probably stealing Delilah's lunch money. One might press the notion that it all evens out .... in the long run.


Dad, Marius keeps hitting me!
Hmmmm ... scenes of disharmony in the Whateley household! Let's watch in the coming days and weeks to see what unfolds.


Gerry. You big hunk of a man. Get the champagne while I slip into something more comfortable.
Hmmmm ... interesting. Let's get some talkback from the kids about this proposal.


Gerry, I'm leaving you.
Hmmmm ... shocking news for the Whateley marriage. A bombshell revelation today.
I'm serious. I want a trial separation.
One's response can only be: We'll be right back after this break.

 

 

...and that's a week when he doesn't take Communion.......

I feel dumber for watching 360... slobbo and whately are the two most uninspiring commentators I’ve seen (I say this now given whately was good on abc grandstand). 

Don’t get me wrong, the production quality is there, the ‘old boys club banter’ is cleverly ignored and having Jack and Lewis on is by design refreshing. 

But there’s little analysis, zero insight and ultimately, only attempts at unearthing the next big grubby story.

Surely they get replaced next year?

I can only assume the 18m goal rectangle (it aint a square) is designed to stop teams pressing up so high and locking the ball in their fwd 50. ie less congestion. Beggars belief they could 'trial' this in 3 intra-club games and make a decision it was OK.

The again a Frosty barrel from 18m out could go to CHF.....

It’s just annoying how the have to completely change aesthetics of the game for one tactic, the long kick in. Would change the game for about 16 seconds. At very least some more trialing would be good.

It’s clearly a brilliant idea don’t you reckon?

Would have been post of the year, but you forgot his penchant for exploring the ‘narrative’. 

 

On a separate matter......How can you work with Robbo and not suffer fools?  How can you keep nodding at Robbo, whilst he is spewing emotional brainless pub-talk?  

Like a bible-basher, cuts talkback radio simpletons off if they use a word such as ‘[censored]’; yet it is a word that Robbo would use without flinching.

I applaud his intellect and the fact that he is raising the bar.  But for god’s sake, find a suit that fits, don’t continually smile like a 6 year old receiving a chrissy present, and give Robbo more RDOs on 360.
