Yes i recall now.  I've wondered that myself but the old adage "never judge a book by its cover" also applies to voice "appearance" i reckon SW.  He certainly sounds like he's a little off center from a business advice POV though i agree.

However, you have to be careful.  One of the smartest humans in a business sense i've had the privilege of working with you would never think of as such if you simply judged by speech and grasp of English (Aussie version of English!).    But there you have it.  This view could also be skewed by the fact that i'm not that clever myself though! ?

Wrong. You're a Melbourne supporter which clearly shows you're smart.

The last annual report I read had Hutchison earning something well north of 900k per annum as the CEO of SEN. 

And on the topic of two first names . . . 

Nothing will ever beat Ron Barassi's question on the day of the Bears/Lions merger in 1996 when the president of the new club, Brisbane Lions, Noel Gordon was being interviewed. He was smugly batting away questions concerning knifes, backs and 'cover of darkness' shenanigans. Ron listened to the BS being spoken for about five minutes without saying too much when I suspect he had finally had enough. A panel member threw to him asking, "Do you have any questions Ron?" Brasso, pausing for two or three seconds for affect, calmly and authoritatively asked Gordon, "What's it like having two first names?" The broadcast box fell silent. Brilliant radio and he had made his point. Then I think the host fell on the floor barely able to contain his laughter.

Yes he is pretty neutral but mostly just a wrap of weekend sport results.  Those bloody Imar ads are annoying though...the tradies mates...massive turn off ?  They would need the insurance though....some of the most out of control agro dangerous drivers i've ever encountered in 35 years of driving.  Possibly the gym & roid combo!?? ?

All of the ads are cringeworthy. All so predictable. And I can't stand the way there are like 10 in a row. And they manage to insert a bunch more throughout the "news" report

Shudder, the way her voice trails off at the end of each each sentence drives me nuts.

SEN is only listenable on podcast. No ads, cut up into segments to find relevant content. They also upload pregame show with huddo, whately etc onto 'AFL Nation' podcast. Saturday Crunch time when Dermie isn't on, is also decent.

Always be wary of people with two first names.

Lol ...

Useless facts #405 & 406

Conversely, have you noticed that commentators usually call players with surname type first names by both names, as if they were hyphenated surnames?  e.g. Aliir Aliir (hardly ever just called Aliir), Harris Andrews, Darcy Moore, numerous Bulldogs players whose first names are Bailey (and our boy Fritsch), Mason Cox, Basher Houli, Lin Jong.

And a player with a hyphenated surname occasionally gets called by only the second part, e.g.  (Neal)-Bullen !!

 I clearly have too much time on my hands.

SEN Saturday night post match is a must listen. A quick wrap up cut short by a pre-recorded ‘gem’ called ‘This Sporting Life’ where largely forgotten sportspeople are metaphorically brought back from the dead (ironically sponsored by Tobin Brothers)

But if you’re patient, deep-voiced teenager Damian Watson (whom I can only assume is dating the Valley Girl newsreader mentioned here) adds some immediacy, taking us through the Saturday games with aplomb. And his most prominent caller appears to be ‘Mark from Taylors Lakes’. There was another caller ‘Mike’ who sounded suspiciously like Mark. He was from Patterson Lakes. Mark has views that would make a Qanon conspirator blush. And Damian tackles him head on with acerbic put downs. Perhaps the most biting was ‘Yes, I see your point’. As I say, it’s a must listen.

I find SEN pretty lowbrow these days, although I actually don’t mind Off The Bench on Saturday mornings.

It’s become a vehicle for horse racing, punting and adverts, with a bit of sport in between. Even Gerard Whately’s show, which I used to rate, has gone a bit 3AW as someone said previously.

I'll post in this thread because it's about radio announcing although not SEN. Congratulations to Gerard Healy on 3AW who in last night's Sports Today show made the folllowing statement in a passionate call for more Thursday night football:

"Thursday night football should be on every day of the week".

They are just looking for more work. Best ignore it and his grammer.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    CHANGES 2021 by The Oracle

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition th

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s
