    Love it
    Better than watching imo
    You get a real feel for the atmosphere
    How alot of fights used to get covered before tv even existed

    Aye I agree, that would be ideal. I often don't want to hear the commentary but you don't want no sound at all either. Sometimes I just turn the telly down quite low so I'm still getting some noise but can't make out everything the commentator says. Adam Smith is comes to mind.

    I remember BBC broadcasting Mike McCallum v Herol Graham like that due to a media strike of some kind. If my memory serves me right, I think Terry Lawless may have given his insight in-between rounds. It worked really well

    Back in the day I used to frequent a bookies which was a tiny hut outside of a workingman's club. The only televised broadcast was on Saturday's or during festivals and on a tiny telly perched on a shelf. Otherwise it was SIS audio commentary only. Your nag might have been tailed off, but in your own mind there was always a possibility and if the commentator mentioned him and raised his voice and he was finishing....."he's getting up!".....well that feeling was the best I ever had.

    Agreed. Quite apt for mucky photos and videos on the net too. These young lads now have never had to forage for torn pieces of jazz mags in bushes etc. they just go on google now.

    Ah that brings back memories. We'd often find a Razzle behind a tree, but curiously we never found the Razzler. Probably for the best :)

    I’d like to think there was a Razzle fairy just tearing off pieces for us to find. 25 years later, that fairy is boozing in a bar now, drowning her sorrows. Would make a good Disney script that.

    I took a mag to School once and had it in my Adidas bag to give to a mate. I have got sweaty palms now, remembering how nervous I was with that in my bag.

    That was the childhood equivalent of smuggling a kilo of coke over into Bali, mate. Very risky stuff.

    We used to have some hills and trees behind our estate and always used to find those grot mags! We would then hide them so we could go back haha.
    Remeber the first time we found one and they had personal ads in them. **** me my mate got a beating racking up a huge bill calling those haha.

    Also finding all out dad stashed video tapes! We all found them one by one and this lad called Paul got upset as his dad had videos of guys ****ting in woman's mouths! haha. Funny times back then.
