Are you not entertained?

Guest: Goal - Own Goal
Today, much of what sport has always meant to true fans, has been lost in a blizzard of corporate communications, fireworks and froth. The attachments, that were once so strong, seem more trivial in the global age of televised sport as entertainment. What was once authentic, is increasingly staged. In this podcast, we’ll get back to the things that sport has always meant to true fans.
Episode 12: Grant is back in the saddle with Roger, discussing the closing chapter in the career of Lindsey Vonn. Beautiful memories of the magnificent Roberto Baggio bring to light how much sacrifice is part of becoming a champion. We then hear an incredible golf story of today: how, not tipping your caddie enough, can get you slammed. Finally, Roger and Grant argue over how much a dead player should cost and what price loyalty to the “land of your fathers”.
