Just started listening to the Frank Bruno pod.

Was rolling laughing with Frank as he explained the Black & Decker to Tris, who couldn't hold it together either.



Haw! Haw! Haw! Haw!

Just been listening to the Bruno one. Big Frank is always great value for money.
Came across as more honest and realistic about his career than most former fighters do. A funny man too, and when he laughs you just can't help laughing with him.

Haw! Haw! Haw! :lol:

He was so honest. There wasn’t a single “well on that night, my girlfriend’s cat had just died, so she was emotional, I was emotional, so I really wasn’t in the right frame of mind and that’s why I lost!” BS.

With all the arguments about that dickhead cricketer getting a knighthood, I wanna know why he isn’t Sir Frank yet?

Really disliked this one. Typical of the BBBC, Smith refused to acknowledge any of the referees being shit and basically acknowledged that a judge isn’t sanctioned if they have a complete shocker, with lines like “if they see the fight that way that’s the way he saw the fight.”

Also refused to admit home cooking decisions. Always thought this guy was a bit of a cunt, now I know for sure.

I also think Tris is a bit of a pussy. He let’s so much slide, like Smith basically denying home cooking Tris just goes “ok”, when as a serious boxing journalist he should call him on such a blatant lie.

It's the way the game works. It's a relaxed podcast chat with people in the game not panorama. If he were to get uppity with fighters and other folk in the game he'd very quickly burn bridges which could cost him his livelihood

I get that when I view the site from my work computer, but Twitter is blocked on work stuff, where it doesn't seem to be on your device. Sorry buddy.

Yeah I know that, it’s pretty obvious. Doesn’t mean I like it though.

Anyway, I’m not saying he starts going all Piers Morgan on them, but people like Robert Smith have a duty to be transparent and honest. Not obviously lie!

Journalists also have a duty to challenge obvious lies. Go listen to this one. Smith asserts that referees do get taken to task if they make bad decisions, etc and journalist Tris quite literally goes “ok”. Why not query what happens?

It’s all too pally pally whilst also happily going along with the oh so typical and boring digging out of boxing fans, along the lines of “all these so called experts!”. There is a chance that actual boxing fans do actually know quite a bit about boxing, so when a ref or judge for example make a monumental fuck up, why is it accepted that they’re not in the wrong and people who point it out are “so called experts”?
