The Anchorman vs The Third Umpire

The brothers are united again in this episode but ever so divided in opinions, so stick in for this one's about to get real! Yes, our Third Wheel, Dom, again joins Mel and Simon as we briefly rehash last week's episode that never was because we (read: Simon) messed up the recording and lost what would have been one of our best episodes. Chronicles on the agenda On The Fly this week... We discuss Novak Djokovic being tossed out of the US Open tennis tournament for accidentally hitting a stray ball into a linesperson, and are sports stars role models? Cheating in football: Dom argues that diving, play-acting and cheating is rampant, but Simon doesn't think it's as bad as that, which leads us to discuss Diego Maradona's 1986 World Cup hand of God goal, and where the win-at-all-costs mentality comes from. VAR reviews in football and poor ARC review technology in AFL. The new offside rule interpretations in football have ruined the game. We talk about the announcement that Richard Garcia is the new manager of Perth Glory in the A League, and young football coaches; the tyrannical and oppressive state of Danistan; Australian citizens stranded overseas during COVID-19 travel restrictions; a discussion on American sports moving their franchises to different cities; and then Mel and Dom have the great raucous debate of 2020: should the government regulate the gambling industry? It's a debate and an argument that gets the brothers fired up and it's not to be missed!
