Yesterday seemed to be the return to work day for many AFL football teams, and accompanying them, came the breathless reporting of every training drill and players and coaches wheeled out for the obligatory interviews and press conferences.
In the afternoon news hour on SEN, the young reporter covering the day reported these two gems:
- Dustin Martin still, according to Chris Newman, needs to work out the balance between his football and his social life, as during 2012 he had, according to the reporter, “a number of off-field discrepancies“
- Later, she reported the sad news of a likely 2nd knee reco for a young hawk, who injured himself “during match day stimulation” at training.
Say what you want about Healey, Slater and the rest of the Channel 9 cricket folk, or Bruce and his stats and passion, nothing mangles the English language like the return of the footy season!!
Looking forward to this club house leader opening the floodgates to Pandora’s box of worms to more mixed metaphors, buggered similes and simply wrong wordage through the 2013 season.
