No, I don't. I was about to write: Unlce Tom, I've heard it all now.

There is a big picture, and a small picture. Like you said, he's selling tickets so he picks the most obscure-off the topic crap he can dig up.
The big picture is a world title fight and all things being different this could've been for a WBA title too. There is some big fish out there for a bloke who was twittering Mayweather not so long ago.
I would consider the colour of someone's skin the small picture when the fight is on Wednesday.

I've never heard of this Uncle Tom before did I miss the memo? Anglos uncles are generally old pervs if you're really looking for a stereotype.

Have you noticed the hordes of aboriginals crying out to condemn his comments? Nope.
They gave up on that a long time ago, they just ignore him.
I can't speak for Beetson but some guys couldn't shower with their white team mates back in the day, among other things. I reckon he'd be giggling at a bloke from the hood in a shiny track suit.

Some aboriginal tribes (for instance noongar) don't speak the first name of the deceased, they can't even say it in the press. No skin off my nose if he's calling someone that he has to walk in his own shoes.
I just saw the press conference and I noticed then when Geale tried to speak, Mundine interrupted. Says it all. Geale called him an idiot in the pre fight presser.

Ho hum, how predictable, 3 days out from a fight and acting like he knows what he's talking about combined with trying to act like Mohammed Ali

I've noticed of late that he keeps mentioning what a great bloke he is when you get to know him

Bottom line, he's criticising a dead man for the sake of trying to create controversy to sell more tickets to his fight in order to make more money for himself.

In other words, he has no respect for anyone when it comes to money.

What a righteous soul brother

When Mundine was at the Dragons there was a "brothers" corner in the change room that no white players were allowed to enter.

What a weak arse disjointed club. Any club with half a backbone would have but the clever through any type of racial faction happening within.

He played 3 origins all off the bench.

Has Main Event been running episodes of The Contender in between the fight promos? They should rename it "Australia's Next Top Bloke."
I don't care what he says about Geale,his wife or Daley thats just puffery to stir up controversy and I didn't care when he said that him,Blacklock and Peachey were not picked because of race and attacked Artie when he was alive but he's dead man Just unnecessary. I suppose I do want to see him get beaten badly more now so it's worked if that was his intentions.
Next step if he beats Geale. IMO he will ditch the belt rather than face Sturm and fight Medley for the vacant IBO JMW title. Medley's probably not in the top 50 but they will find a way to justify it. Now that grinning Greeny is retiring Phil will cater to his whims. MUNDOG!!!!!!!

Mundine is borderline illiterate, you'd think after all the time he's put himself in the spotlight he'd be able to string a few words together, Kent made him look like a mug again
