A Show For Dreamers

A Show For Dreamers

Question: If a meteor drops from the sky and wipes out a Commonwealth Games athlete’s family should officials (a) tell the athlete or (b) stay quiet and allow the athlete to focus on their event? This very complex issue is just one of the many points raised by Rampaging Roy Slaven and HG Nelson during their wide-ranging Commonwealth Games post-mortem in this week’s riveting podcast. Showing yet again why they are Australia’s best broadcasters, Roy and HG forensically examine the evidence to solve the crimes committed by other commentators (hint: criticizing the Commie Games closing ceremony is dangerously close to treason.) Also to be found in this action-packed podcast is Roy and HG’s new design for the Socceroos jersey (hint: think eucalyptus green and an electric yellow lightning bolt) plus a new Commonwealth Games event involving a canoe and a coconut (hint: you throw the canoe.) Once again listener discretion is advised as this episode of The Sporting Probe contains further descriptions of Hell that are harrowing, blood-curdling and once heard can never be forgotten.

The Healing Process Begins

The Healing Process Begins

Australia’s baggy green shame could become a massive win for one lucky listener if Roy and HG can pull off the greatest piece of cricket memorabilia. Picture it proudly hanging in your house: three baggy green caps and one small piece of sandpaper. Tastefully framed, of course, and worth a fortune, especially when Smith, Bancroft and Warner add their autographs. Licking your lips in anticipation? The Sporting Probe is negotiating the deal so stay tuned. Plus, what sparked this from Rampaging Roy Slaven: “I have never heard of a more gutless act in all my years of broadcasting on Australian radio.” You can only find out here plus revelations on the worst training camp horror, sledging advice for kids and why some might think Swedes are sickos (Hint: involves blue-bottles and bathtubs.)

Are there any effing questions!?!

Are there any effing questions!?!

On the day of Australia’s greatest shame Roy and HG bravely set up the card table to grapple with the unholy scandal of our Test team tampering with the cricket ball. In a courageous display of patriotism, The Sporting Probe faced up to all the tough questions: Who are the clowns in the Test team’s leadership group? Was Boof Lehmann involved? Are all Australians forever to be branded as cheats? (Hint: sob.) Should Steve Smith resign? Is this a hanging offence? Would Bradman have ever done it? (Hint: you’ll be shocked.) Plus you’ll discover what the flaming heck is a ‘Lightburn Zeta’ and what it has to do with Melbourne’s Formula One event and how The Mouth Ulcers could be the saviours of Tassie AFL. This may be Australia’s darkest day ever but there is one bonus – it produced a classic performance from the finest broadcasters in this once proud land. Sob!

The key word to unlock this week’s The Sporting Probe is ‘innovation’ as Roy and HG solve the world’s problems with fresh, ground-breaking ideas. For example, why are pie makers licking their lips over the AFL’s fact finding mission to India and China? (Hint: the innovation of chicken chow mien pies.) Roy finesses his already innovative architectural transformations of sporting stadiums (Hint: why toilets will no longer be needed.) Has Twiggy Forrest really thought through his proposed rugby innovations? (Hint: Umm, maybe not.) And then there is the head-spinning innovation that may change the way all Australian fans enjoy their sport (Hint: do we need stadiums at all?) Then there is vets with axes, sportsmen as diplomats and the return of the man they call Tiger, Tiger Woods. Fore!

The United Nations and The Sporting Probe’s campaign is officially underway: “It is a basic human right for all Australian sport fans to have a half-time beer and a dump.” Doing his bit, Rampaging Roy Slaven reveals his architectural innovations for sporting venues that ensure this right while HG Nelson slams suggestions in the financial press that the Dick-In-The-Till website is a take-over target by declaring, “The Dick is not for sale.” Nick from Darwin sparked some heavy-duty thinking with his mojo-wire contribution to this week’s episode suggesting there should be racing events exclusively for doped horses plus The Probe reviewed the return of Channel 9’s Footy Shows asking, ‘Boring, brilliant or just bewildering.’ (Hint: Want to bowl up an issue? Send an email to royandhg@thesportingprobe.com.au) Roy and HG also take a long, hard look at the controversies sparked by the Australia V South Africa cricket Tests and offer pertinent solutions (Hint: every player should wear a microphone is one.) Then there’s the ‘Tahs, Sam Newman for mayor and why the AFL CEO’s dream is for every game to end in a draw. If you want common sense and insight this week’s entertaining Sporting Probe is the sweet spot. Cheers!

The home of the dick-in-the-till website

Roy and HG are on fire in this episode of The Sporting Probe – so many issues tackled, so many solutions punted through the sticks. Top of the show is the breaking news about how the Probe’s Dick-In-The-Till website crashed when Michaelia Cash threatened to name names and give punters a big win on the PM’s no-rooting ban. Then there is the Funny Hat Friday innovation on all Qantas flights to raise money to pay women rugby players but will the idea to allow business class passengers to pay $50K to help land the plane fly? (Hint: is the trousers off option going too far?) Will football’s pie-and-burger combo scheme to get fans going to games result in massive food fights? (Hint: The involvement by Manu and Pete and the police should be a major crowd pleaser.) And then there is Julie Bishop’s brilliant and ingenious plan to sneak rugby league players in to America in diplomatic pouches (Hint: this will provide diplomatic immunity for those involved in law suits.) Punters, patriots, pilgrims and probesters, there is so much more so download now and delight in the wisdom of Australian radio’s greatest broadcasters.
