This is the MugPunters.com.au podcast for Thursday 19th April 2017 and in our breaking news headlines this week: - Australian Rugby League chairman Peter Beattie has once again hit the headlines this week, mistaking a child wearing a Barcelona jersey as a Knights supporter. Here at Mug Punters, we think the backlash is unwarranted as surely anyone can make such a simple error. And to my wife who is a huge fan of the show, I swear I thought that shop down the side alley in Cronulla was a physiotherapist. See… we all make mistakes - Johanna Griggs and Basil Zempilas have unleashed the fury following the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony where viewers were left as unsatisfied as a hungry elephant given only a snickers bar to eat. Clearly smoke could be seen coming from Griggs’ ears as channel 7 insiders said they hadn’t seen her that angry since they ran out of pulled pork sliders at the House Rules after party buffet in 2015. Ratings numbers suggested by the time the closing ceremony was finished, only a handful of viewers remained, though channel 7 executives remained upbeat, pointing out that was double their estimates of Australians who actually cared about the Commonwealth Games anyway - And Kerry Packer is rolling over his grave with the news Channel 7 is set to become the major broadcaster of the cricket starting next summer. Along with the announcement also came speculation over who channel 7 would choose to anchor the broadcasts with early markets showing Bruce Mcavaney at $5, Mel McLaughlin good value at $9 and we definitely pray it’s not Kochie at $31. Given channel 7 CEO Tim Worner (no relation to David) has suggested the first objective is to find someone who will be as charismatic and popular as Mark Nicholas with channel 9, speculation quickly installed a new even money favourite for the job and we wish the Cash Cow all the best in his new role PLUS we've got - A full round of NRL tips (sort of) - Winx Watch - Group one racing - A-League - AFL - And plenty more where that came from!
