Just a thought; love the show but seems lacking in boxing material. I know they include sports by how they rate in the public eye but how do we get boxing back on its feet if we cant start at even the level of radio?
Just to add to this; whilst in the USA recently i noticed they have a whole radio station dedicated to MMA and boxing. Obviously the sport is much bigger there but i mean we only have to start small. At the moment we have nothing
I have rung the boys several time. Usually I talk about boxing and you can tell that they aren't all that much interested.

FFS.......It's meant to be a sport's show.......not devoted solely to Rugby League.

You are right though.......they know SFA about boxing, and to be honest......Gibbsy isn't all that bright anyway.

I spoke to him last night about the whether the 2 points should have been deducted from the Cowboys or not.

He seemed unable to grasp the concept that under the laws of probability, the whole game was altered by the extra player being on the field for 20 secs.

From that point on......no player was going to be in exactly the same position.......no pass was going to be the same........no tackle would be the same.

The Cowboys may have gone on to win by 50 points......but also, they may have lost by the same margin.

His co-commentator got the idea.......but not Gibbsy.
