Always be wary of people with two first names.

SEN has really dropped the  ball lately. The young girl who reads the news sounds like a 16 year old work experience student with a bad cold and braces.

Garry Lyon and Tim Watson are the only ones radio show worth listening to on SEN. The rest is a shambles.  When they took Ox and Marko off I completely switched off.

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

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.

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".

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
