Pablito: Tribute to Italy legend Paolo Rossi

In this Chronicles episode, we've lost another great of the world game. Recently Diego Maradona left us, and this week it's Paolo Rossi, the goalscoring star of the Italian 1982 World Cup winning team in Spain. Every Italian-Aussie soccer-loving kid growing up in Australia in 80s had the legend of the Italy '82 team passed down to them. We celebreate the legend of "Pablito". We also discuss an AFL draft nominee telling the media that he didn't want to be drafted outside of Victoria. Did Mercedes purposely throw away a Formula 1 victory for Lewis Hamilton's stand-in driver? Our fearful WA Premier backed out of a national cabinet meeting because he's scared of South Australians, insulting them and embarrassing West Aussies at the same time. Have you downloaded the SafeWA app or will you just write your name on the page when you enter localities? Millwall FC fans boo their own team taking a knee before their match with Derby County. Are sport fans tired of being lectured to? We also take on the pitch walk-off in the Champions League by the Instanbul Basaksehir and Paris Saint Germain teams in protest at a perceived racist slight by the 4th Official toward Istanbul's assistant coach. We discuss the Australian national anthem sung in the local aboriginal language before the Australia vs Argentina rugby union match. And do you know the second verse of Advance Australia Fair?
