    If SBS have the rights, Fox won't be showing it.

    I thought both had the rights?

    Fox have exclusive rights. They will more than likely use the feed, and probably have their own commentators.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Ahh, I stand corrected then. If the India and New Zealand tours are anything to go by, Fox will just show the feed as they recieve it and go back to their "expert panel" during breaks. This is a blessing, as we will get the decent Sky team and not have to deal with Dean Jones or Jeff Thompson.

    On the contrary Ray, my callers have insisted that i come on and set the record straight. There seems to be a few too many plodders on here and ive taken it as my responsibility to restore some kind of order.
    With respect to Les's offer, ill be writting him a detailed email this afternoon outlining exactly why i believe i am the man for the job.

    Yes, yes I understand John...you're morally bound to do what your callers want.

    But when it comes to this SBS gig I'm their man, for obvious reasons. As long as they don't employ that hippy plodlodyte, Damien Lovelock, it'll be a great production. I've already sent a detailed email to Les outlining what I think should be the production specs. I've done a few of these, so I've plenty of experience to offer.

    Yes Ray, I understand all that and i fully support you in your quest to commentate the ashes. Ive been a big fan for a long time as you well know. However, if im not given a place in the SBS commentary team then Les Murray and co will lose my support altogether. Ive followed 24 ashes series, ive forgoten more about it than they'll ever know.

    Geez, Johnny Warren would have been perfect for this. But in his absence (god rest his soul), Les Murray has got to make some tough calls. He's ballsed it up in the past by using that Lovelock bloke, who couldn't sing for his life. What makes him some sort of sports and social commentator has got me stuffed. I'd pull his f'n ears if I could see them under that hair.

    As a tax-payer funded organisation they duty bound to employ the best that's on offer. There are no more experienced people than either you or me.

    Looks like it will be Channel 4, led by Richie Benaud. Anybody know who else is usually on the channel 4 commentary team?

    Well, I guess John Howard commentated during the Tsunami match, so anything is possible.
