YANKEE FOOTBALL IN QUEENSLAND? THE DOCKERS,THE PRIDE & THE COWS – PHIL STALEY’S THOUGHTS ON SPORTS

14 Mar

2013 Pro Bowl

Rarely do politicians earn a spot in a sports report, but Queensland Premier Campbell Newman gets a mention this week. He’s in the US, where he’s invited National Football League chiefs down under, with a view to putting on an NFL match in Brisbane. Mr Newman reckons it would generate tourism, and could become an ongoing arrangement.

We explore this possibility on this week’s Thoughts on Sports with Phil Staley, and we preview the AFL season opener between the Fremantle Dockers and Collingwood, the NRL Queensland derby between North Queensland Cowboys and the Brisbane Broncos, & the Q-Cup Northern Pride v Redcliffe match in Cairns.

Australians love their sport – but I reckon no-one loves their sport quite like our Phil Staley. Indoor, outdoor, winter summer or somewhere in between – Phil loves it all. Stand at his desk here at ABC Far North and you get the feeling you’ve just run on to Lang Park or the MCG. Phil has a gift for talking about sport in a way that even people who can’t stand sport will enjoy.

He gets past the hype and the stats to the magic ingredient that makes sport so compelling – the people who play it and the people who love it. Phil talks about sport each Friday on ABC Far North at 5:15pm – now you can tune in online as well. Phil’s Thoughts on Sports are podcast too – search Phil Staley in your podcast app.
