    Podcast #87 – The Love of Goalkeeping, Maradona and Do You Have To Be A Certain Height To Be An Elite Athlete?

    Podcast #87 – The Love of Goalkeeping, Maradona and Do You Have To Be A Certain Height To Be An Elite Athlete?

    We are back with another show and as usual some interesting topics under discussion.







    Our guest on this show is former international water polo goalkeeper Tomaz Lasic who has just published his first book, “The Love of Goalkeeping.” The book is not a coaching manual but looks at what it takes to become a goalkeeper, not just the physical attributes, but the many other aspects that make this position so unique. Tomaz looks at the similarity in the skills needed to fill the position in a number of sports and how there is a crossover in the coaching. For those who wish to purchase a copy visit the website The Love of Goalkeeping.







    In our topics under discussion John looks at the passing of football great Maradona and asks whether his legacy would have been very different if he had admitted that he had punched the ball past England’s Peter Shilton. Clearly he was a genius on the pitch and had his flaws away from it. Should we judge him by those flaws or solely on his football? The debate as to whether he was the greatest will continue to rage, and for those too young to have seen Pele, he will always hold that position. For the record the documentary mentioned was “In The Hands of The Gods.”







    Following the discussion on Maradona and also the interview with Tomaz, Ashley looks at whether players are now being selected more due to their height or physical attributes rather than for their ability. Will we ever see the likes of Maradona and Messi again, as will those identifying talent select them or dismiss them for being too small? At the current time there is not a single goalkeeper in the English Premier League under 6ft (182cm). The average height of a Premier League goalkeeper is currently 6 ft 3 in, or 193cm. This is not just happening in football, in Tennis the last player under 6ft to win one of the four major tournaments was Gaston Gaudio in 2004. Certainly people are getting taller but from 1960-1980 there were only five players over 6ft to win Wimbledon, since 1980 there have only been five under 6ft to win Wimbledon! The same is also happening in golf where the average age of players on The Tour has gone down but their height up. Here was a sport that used to be for all body types but now size and strength are having a part to play as much as the equipment. All of the top players are now over 6ft, so do those under that height have a chance, or are they too being cut out of the sport? Is this discrimination? Or is it just proof that many sports are not as diverse as they used to be?

    Podcast #86 – We Touch On The Ornery Topic Of Racism in Sport, and Also Sport Evolving Into Becoming Work.

    Podcast #86 – We Touch On The Ornery Topic Of Racism in Sport, and Also Sport Evolving Into Becoming Work.

    There are any number of “Days” created across a number of sports dedicated to try and raise awareness of social issues. Yet are they working?







    In this show, after having many organisations whose role is to help integration or to educate in this space opting not to discuss racism in sport we are pleased to welcome South African journalist Simnikiwe Xabanisa who has written many articles on this very topic. South Africa’s emergence from the Apartheid regime is a good place to start as it has raised many issues that exist outside of South Africa but are not being addressed. He talks candidly and asks some pertinent questions on the issue. Unfortunately we only scratch the surface in this interview but hopefully it leads people to question, and to some clubs looking at how many people they have playing for them from different backgrounds. Are they truly diverse? Are they really equal in terms of the opportunities afforded to their members? We have seen that sport has the ability to unite, but do we see that unity as much as we should? Hopefully the points raised will make some think a little bit harder on this issue and realise that actions are what are important, not tokenism that leads to additional funding.







    In this how we really only have one topic under discussion as following the interview we review some of the points raised. John raises the issue of sport becoming a job, rather than remaining as it was recreational. That being the case do the same rules that apply in the general workforce exist in the sporting world? Is there a duty of care amongst the employers and do they live up to it? The conversation then meanders onto inductions into Halls of Fame and whether those athletes selected should be chosen purely on sporting merit rather than for any failings away from their sport. This leads Ashley into questioning the choice of winner in this year’s Herb Elliott Medal at the Western Australian Hall of Champions dinner.

    Podcast #85 – Football Ferns Coach Tom Sermanni joins us, while the broadcasting of sport during these times comes during under the microscope…

    The Covid Pandemic has been a tricky time for those who are coaching International teams. In this show we catch up with the Football Ferns head coach Tom Sermanni to hear how he is trying to stay focussed on pulling the New Zealand Women’s team up to a level where they will be competitive co-hosts of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup. He discusses how as a coach he refreshingly looks at ways to win games and how he longs to put one over his former team Australia’s Matildas.







    In the topics under discussion John shares with us how the overuse of certain words in commentary are driving him mad. (Ashley then uses one of those words!) Which leads us into the integrity of broadcasting sport as a media partner, does that prevent you from giving an honest assessment. Ashley sticks to a similar theme but looks at how production costs have clearly have been cut on the broadcast of many sports. In particular he looks at the return of the FIH Pro League, and the extra line-markings on the pitch used for the comeback game.Does this damage the broadcast product and the viewer experience? This leads John into a rant on the blue turf being used for day-time games.







    Experts then come under the microscope, do they give a true insight for those of you at home watching?

    Podcast #84 – Cricket And Putting the Players First, Should Olympic Athletes Be Paid and The Perth Glory Coaching Merry-Go-Round, plus so much more…

    Welcome back!







    Another great show lined up for you where we catch up with Former Leicestershire, Glamorgan, Somerset and Western Australia cricketer Jim Allenby to talk about the player development available through his company Players Choice, where the players are the centre of attention, and the coaches remain in the background. Jim also talks about something that many fans never give a thought to, being the centre of abuse. This is something that no amount of coaching can prepare you for and is another example as to why the hand-picked coaches at Players Choice offer more than just improving a player’s technique.







    IN the topics under discussion Ashley looks at the turnover of coaches at Perth Glory and the disconnect between the club and the community. He asks whether it is time to give the role to a local coach with a mentor behind the scenes to try and help the club reconnect with the local game and the public at large. This leads into whether coaching orthodoxy has become a blight on sport? After all how many people go to watch a coach?







    John turns his attention to the Olympic Games, and even though the International Olympic Committee is a Not For Profit organisation asks whether the time has come for the IOC to reward Olympic athletes with appearance or at least prize money? After all the Olympic Games turned professional officially in 1992, after some athletes hade been labelled “shamateurs” throughout the 1980’s. If professional athletes are participating, is it really too much to feel that the deserve to be remunerated for their appearance and success?

    Podcast #83 – Shaun Norris discusses the Classification changes in Wheelchair Basketball, while under discussion are the Integrity of competitions during lockdown, and the wicket-taking of Jimmy Anderson.

    Podcast #83 – Shaun Norris discusses the Classification changes in Wheelchair Basketball, while under discussion are the Integrity of competitions during lockdown, and the wicket-taking of Jimmy Anderson.

    The International Paralympic Committee has put a great deal of pressure on the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation to change its classification rules, but now the changes are in place those playing the game are far from happy. Many feel that the changes go against the Paralympic charter. We caught up with the captain of the Australian Rollers, Shaun Norris, a man who has won both World Cup and Paralympic gold to hear his views on the changes. Shaun makes some pertinent points and once again one wonders if those making such decisions spoke to the athletes before locking in a final decision.







    During these difficult times various sports have worked hard to resume competition. Some purely for financial reasons, some so that local sport can simply return, for people’s physical and mental health. In our topics under discussion Ashley and John discuss whether the integrity of some long-standing competitions have been harmed by the decision to continue them at this time, especially under different rules and conditions. What are your thoughts on your sport’s competitions?

    Podcast#82 – Tidying up the Rules with Terry Walsh, Will The Olympics Go Ahead as Planned or with Less Events, Will There Be Funding Afterwards If They Do?

    Podcast#82 – Tidying up the Rules with Terry Walsh, Will The Olympics Go Ahead as Planned or with Less Events, Will There Be Funding Afterwards If They Do?

    With many sports in a holding pattern this appeared to be the ideal time for many to re-structure or take stock of their operations. Many fans of a variety of sports feel that today we see too many changes to the rules each year. Former Hockey umpire Stan Imer felt that hockey was guilty of this in the 1960’s. On this show we sat down with former Australian International player and coach Terry Walsh to hear which rules he would like to see changed.







    In our topics under discussion Ashley and John look at the problems facing the organisers of the postponed Tokyo Olympic Games. Will it result in some events being cut back in terms of the medals on offer? Will the delay effect the level of funding that the International Federations receive?







    We also explain why there has been so much time between shows…
