Anyone see the little bit in sports confidential today in the tel Christian Nicolussi wrote it
They had no bell for the fights on Wednesday night.
I wasn';t going to mention this but now something has been printed i would like to set the record straight
at 5PM on Wednesday night i received a call saying that in WA the authority supply the bell and in Sydney the Ring supplier supplies.
apparently the ring used was brought from WA so had no ring
No offical had one either
so at 5PM when i should have been having a nice ride in on a hired bus and enjoying a beer i was on the phone ringing for a bell. a very old one like used at the football accompanied by a hammer a detour via Leichhardt oval got that one
a phone call to paul towell got another 2 that were more the boxing type
so at 6.30 when i should have been across the road enjoying another beer i was running in and out of the arena getting bells giving tickets to the guys and getting the show on the road
I have posted this for no other reason then to get the story right
the one in the tele today with officals is wrong
as i said wasn't going to say anything and had kept it quiet until a false report in the tele
