    As rare as a Daryl Broham self deprecating fat joke.

    Did Paul Kent really say he was asked to a do a Gus Gould style review on clubs and he turned them down? surely I misheard that. Not that id ever accuse a journalist of having an over-inflated sense of ego.

    It's classic attention seeking behaviour. He'll bring any convo back to himself by trying to make some self depreciating joke. He also has a terrible over the top laugh at anything vaguely humorous. Definitely one of worst pundits around as a result, which is a shame as he's quite charismatic.

    f**k that's uncomfortable to watch. It's no wonder the ep was pulled.

    I heard Finchy on ABC Grandstand on Saturday, he sounded coherent and back to normal... Hopefully all continues on the up and up for him...

    I don't think he was drugged etc.

    He looked a combination of tired and drunk.

    The fidgeting was classic drunk person movements to stay awake. The way he thumped his hand on the disk accidentally, genuine loss of motor skills due to alcohol.

    Touching the face is also classic drunk behaviour to keep the face awake.

    alcohol is a CNS depressant, he would have been slurring his speech and heavy eyed if it had been on the drink, he was buzzing.

    Exactly, he's just a real knockabout bloke with great vision & actually follows through on his ideas as much as possible - so many stories. Such a shame he didn't get involved as an owner of an NRL team.

    Finch has mental health issues. As someone who has similar problems I can tell you some days you are good, other days not so good hence that is why Finch can appear a bit "all over the shop" from time to time.

    Yeah you know how like when you're on the 5th day of a charge and you have an important work meeting to go to, so you do some lines in the toilet before, of course, just to blow out the cobwebs, but you do more than you usually do, because you're so tired, and you have gotta perform, but you overshoot the runway, and you don't have any vodka to reel yourself back in, so you end up raving and twitching like a spastic? .. maybe like that. Or maybe not.

    I liked the part where they laughed about his mate politis paying blokes, and his amazement that other clubs dont do it
