The Grand Final

In the final Sporting Probe for 2018 Australia’s greatest broadcasters left nothing on the field. In the spirit of Aussie Olympic hero, Edwin ‘The Lion of Athens’ Flack, Rampaging Roy Slaven and HG Nelson tackle every big issue with gusto and flair. Like, CRICKET: What role did Michael Clarke play in the collapse of Aussie cricket? Have Smith and Warner met Justin Langer’s daughters? And, what is Australian cricket built on? (Hint: hate.) Then there are the BANKS and, Why bank CEO’s...

Or revealing how the...


HG Breaks Down

It is the moment every probester, patriot, pilgrim and punter will long remember as, overcome by grief, HG Nelson breaks down weeping over the loss of Bruce to the Melbourne Cup. You’ll be heart-broken as you hear the tears splattering his boots as HG demands Sco-Mo issue a Prime Ministerial-decree to move Bruce McAvaney to Channel 10 so he can call next year’s Melbourne Cup. Agreeing with his partner, Rampaging Roy Slaven predicted that without such an order ‘this is the end of the...


Winx Melbourne Cup Shock

Either Winx runs in the Melbourne Cup or Sports Minister Shotgun McKenzie must cancel the race. That’s the big call this week from Rampaging Roy Slaven and HG Nelson who also demand an auction live on every free-to-air TV station to win the once-in-a-lifetime-chance to ride the champion in the race that stops the world. (Hint: you’ll need deep pockets; Roy hears horse loving Saudi princes are willing to bid $150 billion for the honour.) In tragic news, HG reveals Roy has turned down...

Best Royal Tour Ever

The Sporting Probe has bravely and controversially called it early – Harry and Meghan’s Royal tour is officially the best ever. “There has been nothing like the magic that Meghan and Harry have smeared all over us this week,” says HG Nelson. Rampaging Roy Slaven opines: “What a great week to be an Australian with a couple of sandwiches in the glove box, a tank full of gas and a dream” In other words, this week’s podcast is chock-full of optimism. Mind you, there seems little hope for...


Bruce and Winx Sitting In A Tree

Ah Spring, when an old race-callers fancy lightly turns to thoughts of Winx. Yes, romance is in the air at Sporting Probe this week as Rampaging Roy Slaven and HG Nelson get all dewy-eyed over Bruce McAvaney’s love for Winx. But what will happen to this romance when Winx loses and, Why does Rooting King hate Bruce? And when did the romance begin? (Hint: About win number 10 …) In other gee-gee related matters, the world’s best broadcasters also have ideas on how to improve on this...


The Sausage Sizzle of Remembrance

People flock to the Sporting Probe for controversy. For hard-hitting opinions. For radical solutions. And most definitely for vision. And this week Rampaging Roy Slave and HG Nelson deliver in spades as they tackle the big issue of advertising a horse race barrier draw on the sails of the Sydney Opera House. In a nutshell, the world’s greatest broadcasters say, ‘A good start but how about the Parrot and the NSW Premier get real.’ First, Roy and HG propose punting on the barrier draw is...

The Big Dance v The Granny

It’s the week’s biggest issue: should the grand final be known as The Big Dance or The Granny? Well, here’s the tip from Rampaging Roy Slaven and HG Nelson – the Big Dance has to go. In fact, the world’s greatest broadcasters are calling for Government legislation imposing massive fines and points deducted from driving licences for anyone using the term. (Hint: The Granny is not on solid ground, either.) And what’s next for Sam Newman since he kind of, maybe, quit the Footy Show? HG’s...


The Double Date With Fate

While every Sporting Probe is jam-packed with old fashioned, no nonsense Aussie values this week’s podcast somehow finds room for more. Maybe it’s the time of the year as Spring blooms and Grand Finals loom that pushes Rampaging Roy Slaven and HG Nelson, the world’s greatest sportcasters, to new heights of Aussie excellence. Maybe it’s the way Winx goes clippety-clop, clippety-clop or the way Bruce McAvaney rides the champion to every win. Whatever, you’ll find the spirit of the nation...

Australia’s Au Pair Crisis Revealed

The issue ‘du jour’ on The Sporting Probe this week is the Murderer and the Immigration Minister’s involvement in Australia’s ‘au-pair’ crisis. WHAT is ‘au-pair-ism?’ WHY do au pairs only get paid enough to buy an end of week beer, pie and packet of fags? WHY must au-pairs be ‘au fait’ with AFL current affairs? These questions and more are answered by the world’s greatest broadcasters, Rampaging Roy Slaven and HG Nelson. But, of course, there are other pressing issues unpacked and...


As Good As A Dingo In A Dunny

How good were the greatest broadcasters in the world this week? Were Rampaging Roy Slaven and HG Nelson (a) good; (b) very good, or, (c) as good as a dingo in a dunny. You decide as you tuck in to The Sporting Probe’s smorgasbord of tempting dishes. There’s analysis of the Wallabies Bledisloe Cup loss (“The Wallabies are the best team I’ve ever seen,” opines Roy, “They’re just poorly coached.”) There’s outrage as The Probe calls on the South Australian Government to pave the road to...

Happy Birthday, Rooting King

This week’s Sporting Probe with Roy and HG saddles up to celebrate the Horses’ Birthday with timely revelations to help champion racer Chautauqua overcome his continued failure to jump out of the starting barrier.

Then there was Roy’s slightly more extreme way of helping Rooting King overcome his fear of barriers (Hint: Parental...
