Bruce and Winx Sitting In A Tree

Bruce and Winx Sitting In A Tree

Ah Spring, when an old race-callers fancy lightly turns to thoughts of Winx. Yes, romance is in the air at Sporting Probe this week as Rampaging Roy Slaven and HG Nelson get all dewy-eyed over Bruce McAvaney’s love for Winx. But what will happen to this romance when Winx loses and, Why does Rooting King hate Bruce? And when did the romance begin? (Hint: About win number 10 …) In other gee-gee related matters, the world’s best broadcasters also have ideas on how to improve on this year’s Everest promotion (Hint: How about the White House as the next billboard? Or Redzel climbing Everest in special crampons?) And then there’s the plan to give Barnaby Joyce a couple of billion dollars to bet on big races with all winnings going to Drought Relief. By the way, Was this the right week to kick-start Gambling Awareness Week? Any old whoo, other topics tackled include Roy’s campaign to crack down on ball kid abuse at tennis tournaments, the fallout from the UFC post-fight brawl and how it is affecting Australian fighters and what’s wrong with the new Sydney Football Stadium. Finally, why was the Everest draw done in a public toilet and how did Roy save the fiasco from becoming a complete fiasco. Download now to be enlightened.

The Sausage Sizzle of Remembrance

The Sausage Sizzle of Remembrance

People flock to the Sporting Probe for controversy. For hard-hitting opinions. For radical solutions. And most definitely for vision. And this week Rampaging Roy Slave and HG Nelson deliver in spades as they tackle the big issue of advertising a horse race barrier draw on the sails of the Sydney Opera House. In a nutshell, the world’s greatest broadcasters say, ‘A good start but how about the Parrot and the NSW Premier get real.’ First, Roy and HG propose punting on the barrier draw is an obvious innovation (Hint: a nationwide TV show jam-packed with entertainment and family-friendly betting.) Second, how about a TAB outlet at the Opera House so punters can get a bet on at interval during, say, a La Boheme performance (Hint: very classy operation to keep elites happy.) Third, a four-wheel drive hill climb race course over the Opera House sails (Hint: Roy says Jorn Utzon would support this: “He loved his racing, his dogs, his cars …”) Fourth, how about using the Opera House forecourt as a car yard (Hint: You go to, say, La Boheme and go home in a new car. How good is that!) Look, there’s more but if that doesn’t have you licking your lips in anticipation there’s Golf Month, The Bachelor, cricket, AFL, Kumuls, Winx and the best night Roy and HG ever had. All aboard!

The Big Dance v The Granny

The Big Dance v The Granny

It’s the week’s biggest issue: should the grand final be known as The Big Dance or The Granny? Well, here’s the tip from Rampaging Roy Slaven and HG Nelson – the Big Dance has to go. In fact, the world’s greatest broadcasters are calling for Government legislation imposing massive fines and points deducted from driving licences for anyone using the term. (Hint: The Granny is not on solid ground, either.) And what’s next for Sam Newman since he kind of, maybe, quit the Footy Show? HG’s dream is that in a perfect world Sam will team up with Bruce McAvaney for Talking Footy Part Two but Roy’s mail points in a completely different direction … how about Sam After Dark on Sky TV? “Footy show topics have held Sam back in the past … what people want is Sam in a nappy, covered in boot polish and let off the leash.” (Hint: it won’t be a show for the easily offended.) With the Sydney Football Stadium now to be demolished, HG and Roy take a trip down memory lane with Roy revealing how he found Barbra Streisand lost in the car-park and how he had to punch a few fans as he led her to the stage. Did Dave Warner over-do it with the celebrations after scoring a century in his return to local cricket? Well, yes, if you think burning down the clubhouse and jamming fence pickets up the dates of opposition bowlers but as Roy and HG point out, it’s been a long time since he had reason to celebrate so give him a break. That’s just the tip of the iceberg that is this week’s podcast so welcome aboard to the good ship, The Sporting Probe, and full steam ahead.

The Double Date With Fate

The Double Date With Fate

While every Sporting Probe is jam-packed with old fashioned, no nonsense Aussie values this week’s podcast somehow finds room for more. Maybe it’s the time of the year as Spring blooms and Grand Finals loom that pushes Rampaging Roy Slaven and HG Nelson, the world’s greatest sportcasters, to new heights of Aussie excellence. Maybe it’s the way Winx goes clippety-clop, clippety-clop or the way Bruce McAvaney rides the champion to every win. Whatever, you’ll find the spirit of the nation here. Sure, they ask the hard questions and don’t shy away from the big issues like pointing out the lack of old fashioned, no nonsense Aussie values displayed by ‘the idiots steering the Australian cricket team around the park.’ And WHY this year’s Wacky Wednesday was the best ever and HOW to fix the AFL finals schedule and WHAT songs the Black-Eyed Peas will be performing at the MCG and why fans at Lottoland all sit with garbage bags round their gusset area (Hint: lack of toilet facilities plays a big role.) If that’s not enough to have you licking your lips in anticipation then how about a massive news update from that well-known Barossa Valley town, Nurioopta. Yep, thought that would do it.

Australia’s Au Pair Crisis Revealed

Australia’s Au Pair Crisis Revealed

The issue ‘du jour’ on The Sporting Probe this week is the Murderer and the Immigration Minister’s involvement in Australia’s ‘au-pair’ crisis. WHAT is ‘au-pair-ism?’ WHY do au pairs only get paid enough to buy an end of week beer, pie and packet of fags? WHY must au-pairs be ‘au fait’ with AFL current affairs? These questions and more are answered by the world’s greatest broadcasters, Rampaging Roy Slaven and HG Nelson. But, of course, there are other pressing issues unpacked and analysed including: HOW the Adelaide Crows learnt that to be a good husband you have to be a very ordinary football player. WHO could be Australia’s next heavyweight boxing contender? (Hint: Shane Mumford? Barry Hall? John Hopoate?) WILL the US Open umpire’s coaching of Special K revolutionise sport? And learn how Roy has been helping Chautauqua with barrier issues (Hint: It involves poetry.) Bonjour!

As Good As A Dingo In A Dunny

As Good As A Dingo In A Dunny

How good were the greatest broadcasters in the world this week? Were Rampaging Roy Slaven and HG Nelson (a) good; (b) very good, or, (c) as good as a dingo in a dunny. You decide as you tuck in to The Sporting Probe’s smorgasbord of tempting dishes. There’s analysis of the Wallabies Bledisloe Cup loss (“The Wallabies are the best team I’ve ever seen,” opines Roy, “They’re just poorly coached.”) There’s outrage as The Probe calls on the South Australian Government to pave the road to the home of our Motoring Correspondent’s Mum. There’s intrigue as Roy and HG reveal why Penrith Rugby League boss Gus Gould will be wearing just his undies and a box on his head to West Tigers games? (Hint: It’s an improvement on dressing up as a woman.) There’s advice for Network Nine’s Tennis Coverage (Hint: It involves The Sandpaper Three,) and there’s the full line-up of artists performing at Farm Aid including exclusive news about Kanye West’s duet with Phil Collins. And there’s so much more so, Two-Four-Six-Eight, Bog in, Don’t wait!
