    This maybe controversial but........ I'm almost over Bob.

    Absolutely loved him as a player but almost had enough of him in the media. Playing a poor mans version of Dermott Brereton he seems to love the sound of his own voice a bit too much. Always remember him interviewing Rob Sitch and forgetting that when you work with comedians it's best to let the funny one do most of the talking. Have been watching the new Barkly Street podcasts with Bob and Bont and have lost count of the time he would ask the guest a question but then not allow them the chance to answer by continuing with his own waffle. Ease up a bit Bob, it's not all about you. Shooting Bambi I know, Agree or disagree?

    I get what you mean, but I am not at the stage of being too much annoyed. I don't listen to his show with Andy Maher on SEN, so the only exposure I get is on the podcast.

    I struggle with him at club events and in the media but at least in the media I can't switch off. I like him but a little goes a long way
    Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
    Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up ó if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.
    And what started here will indeed have changed the world ó for the better.

    Disagree, Bob is terrific. That said, I donít listen to radio very much, so I donít hear everything he does. Love him though.
    Our club was born in blood and boots, not in AFL focus groups.

    Flip side is that I reckon that the Bont is doing well in that new role.

    I think Bob has improved on his radio program since he started. I enjoy listening to him when I have the chance.

    I find him OK but in smaller doses and I'm not exactly sure why that is

    To be fair I only listen in small doses too in the car. Waiting for Mrs BFL outside the supermarket for example. Never a full show.

    I don't watch any of the TV shows unless I hear a Bulldog player/coach will be on. That includes AFL 360 - (Robbo a dickhead), Talking Footy, On the couch etc etc.

    Not built for the camera. Great with pen in hand though.

    Re: This maybe controversial but........ I'm almost over Bob.

    I have forced myself to listen to all of this afternoons show. I mostly enjoy Andy Maher and Bob is OK it's just that he seems to pitch himself as the guy who chases the story behind the story and expresses a little too much effort in the emotional side of any story

    That's not a bad thing in itself and I get that might be his style but it's the reason why it wears s bit thin with me

    Heard a bit of SEN today. Is it just me or are there a lot of ads now?
