The Grandstanders

The Grandstanders Podcast - 1st October 2011

It's Grandstanders installment number 14 million and 62 (if you believe Craig), on the biggest weekend in the sporting calendar. So of course, we talk the grand final (although this show went to air before Geelong's spectacular win!). Not only is it big here in Melbourne, but also around the country and even other parts of the world.


Gary AyresThere was also another grand final last week - and Gary Ayres, coach of 2011 VFL premiers Port Melbourne, is our special guest this week. He's a former player too - with 5 premiership games and 2 Norm Smith medals under his belt - and joins us to share his thoughts and philosophies on coaching, learning, development and life in general. Plus whether he'd consider an AFL coaching role if a club came knocking...

The Grandstanders Podcast - 27th August 2011

deblovely.jpg (34315 bytes)Lots of sport. Lots of health. Lots of motivational stuff. That's how Craig introduces the show at least!


But it turns out he was right. Not just AFL but NRL this weekend - because the Storm's winning streak has been broken! Also post workout soreness: how do you relieve those screaming muscles?


And today's guest: Olympic weightlifter Deborah Acason.


Is Jane's top pink or purple?


It's driven a wedge in between the Grandstanders this morning. Jane says it's pink, Craig says it's purple. From the LightFM office, Stacey (pictured on the right) says it's purple, Tim says it's pink.


So the Grandstanders need your help! Text 0428 899 899 or call 1300 777 899 before the show ends at 10am this morning! Pink or purple??
