    That's a good pick up. I have noticed that about Hughes getting very defensive about the show when someone questions why they talk about the Dogs so much, why they never talk other sports etc.

    The thing is the times that I have been unfortunate enough to have listened to Brickhead's calls, and I have heard quite a few, he just brings up the most inane garbage.

    Examples include;

    Talking about old park footy players from the 80's and banging on and on about them.
    He introduced himself to Brett Papsworth by announcing that he knew who Brickhead was and Pappy responded by saying he wouldn't know him from a bar of soap haha.
    He brings up obscure horses running at what was once Fairfield trots or Gosford and going on about the trainers who nobody knew.
    He'd call out e-mailers and Adrian and challenged them to front up to him haha.
    His reunion stories about refusing to pay for anything but enjoying a few free nibblies and leaving before the dinner function starting.
    The Bulldogs and how great they are after one win from five.
    Asking if they knew this bloke or that bloke and no one knew who he was talking about, but he'd continue to go into details about them.

    Absolute drivel from a sad and self-centered dinosaur.

    Listening now and they're doing their Reelin' in the Years segment. They're really scraping the bottom of the barrel because they're doing Two Tits. Haha

    A caller rings the station talking about New Zealand rugby system, basically Tunks wasn't interested and the caller said or maybe I should talk more about the Bulldogs, after he said that the mood of the conversation changed the talking sport crew suddenly cared.

    I heard that call about Lions / All Blacks. Hughes got all defensive and said well you are the caller and you can discuss what you like.
    Pulease.

    This poor old duck was just on. Whinged about the Aussie cricketers wanting more money...was explained to her it was more about money for the state and lower levels

    She thought the Australia A team was the best team....

    She then wanted to know when the SOO teams were going to be announced.

    Made the boys sound like geniuses.

    A lady rang yesterday about her Roosters membership and said "I pay $250 for the season which at the football stadium is ten games".

    Tunks "how much is that in third party payments"(giggles to himself). But absolute crickets, the lady said "sorry, I don't understand".
    Tunks just said "dont worry about it".

    He is just a tool. The lady in question it must of been her first time on because she sounded lucid and answered everything they asked her.

    Yes I also heard that , really... is this what they want to promote to an interested sports audience each afternoon ?
    I'm finding it difficult to listen to lately .

    Nah Gale has been on before I think. She makes Sue look like a MENSA candidate.

    In general it's getting worse, but there are a few high quality callers of late. Just have to wait out the shit to hear them.

    Yeah there were a couple of good ones today. The hypocrisy over boxing one. There was another dude too...can't remember what he said now...but do remember thinking I wish he was hosting the damn thing.

    But today was better as it didn't have robbo and that fool tunks.

    I like how Tunks has an opinion (right or wrong) unlike Robbo who has splinters in his butt, however, Tunks really really.....really needs to reduce his "humour".
    The Roosters fan re $250 membership did not require Tunks to interject with Robbo level of funniness.

    I have a feeling that some of the calls are prank callers ala Bryce Gibbs and Heighington back the day.
    If not, wow!
