Hockey On Footy And Politics

The Federal Treasurer talks footy, politics and his rumoured 'punch-up' with PM Tony Abbott

Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey joined The Grill Team Brisbane to talk footy, politics and a bit about his workmate and Education Minister Christopher Pyne.

Now before Marto, Michelle and Ed grilled the Treasurer on the serious stuff, Marto wanted to clear-up an old story doing the rounds - that Joe Hockey had a punch-up with Tony Abbott back when they played Rugby together.

"It’s not true – I didn’t give him a bit of cheek, I shoulder-charged his kidneys," he said.

"I didn’t know that he’d got a Blue from Oxford University for boxing. If they had told me that before I’d charged into his kidneys.. it might have been a different outcome."

On Christopher Pyne

"Christopher is the funniest guy I’ve ever met in my life. He’s self-deprecating. He takes the 'mickey' out of himself. And the whole ‘fixer thing’ this week was a bit like that," he said.

"If you’re having a dinner party with the 10 most entertaining people in history, I’d have him there. (Other people he'd have would be Groucho Marx, Buddy Holly & Zayn from One Direction).

On representation of politicians (like Christopher Pyne) in the media

"It’s a bit like watching a highlight reel from the footy. You can watch a footy game which will go for nearly an hour-and-a-half and what they show on the nightly news is going to be the ‘big hit’.

"Parliament goes for ten hours a day. They will have one word on the nightly news, which is often taken out of context and that will be the impression that’s left." Listen to the full audio below.

Experts appalled by live baiting practice.

Sickening footage aired on ABC's Four Corners program on Monday night showing animals  flung around Greyhound training tracks as bait.

Live pigs, rabbits and possums were shown being tied to lures by some of Australia's most prominent greyhound trainers.

QLD Racing CEO Darren Condon told The Grill Team they will act quickly to deal with the offenders.

"We will deal with all of the people shown in the footage swiftly and promptly.. to make sure this practice is eradicated from the industry," he told Marto, Michelle & Ed.  

"They'd be banned for life"

RSPCA CEO Mark Townend echoed Condon's disgust, telling the Grill Team: "The human behavior and the way they treat animals isn't normal"

Michael Clarke To The Grill Team "I Would Play Under Steve Smith"

Australian captain Michael Clarke has revealed to Triple M Brisbane's The Grill Team that he would be happy to play under Steve Smith.

Michael Clarke joined The Grill Team yesterday for a pretty in-depth chat.

Marto, Michelle and Ed didn't hold back from asking Pup some of the big questions that have been surrounding his career at the moment such as if he would play under Steve Smith as captain.

"Most definitely I would, look that’s the thing, I’ve said it for a while now you know I feel for Smithy because I sat in his shoes when a lot of the media were calling for Ricky Ponting," Clarke told The Grill Team.

With the constant rumours around his captaincy, Clarke is staying positive and wants to return back to the Australian side as soon as possible.

"I’ve been so fortunate in my career, played over 100 test matches, I’ve played over 200, been fortunate enough to captain my country."

"If my time is over as a player or as a captain then you know the game moves on, people come and go the game will never change that’s life," he said.

He also commented on the reports of a "rift" between himself, other players and Cricket Australia.

"It’s news to me, I’d like to know where it’s coming from, Look I think, the only thing I can really say. It’s obviously disappointing because I haven’t been around the team."

"For the last 7 weeks now I’ve been away from the group so it is disappointing that people are writing that, but they are obviously getting their information from somewhere I feel like my relationship with Cricket Australia especially my team mates is exceptional."
 
"I speak to all my teammates regularly……..George Bailey, Steve Smith, Darren Lehman the captains and the coaches I will speak to regularly."

Listen to the full chat with Clarkey and The Grill Team below. He also talks about looking towards the future and recovering from the tragic loss of Philip Hughes.

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

 A long rivalry that started years ago with a bet over who has ‘the best dumplings’ (not a euphemism) has reached breaking point with Gordie and Dobbo arguing over who has the best racehorse. Dobbo's horse Peak Crossing has only run last and second last six races in a row.  Gordie's horse Signor Carlos has scraped only one win in Caloundra ever.  

DOBBO'S HAIR DO  

These are the two hair-dos that Gordie is favouring for Dobbo for forfeiting the bet. Vote for which one your prefer below.

Meet the Brisbane bloke who has knocked back an invite from the world's most powerful man, Barack Obama.

Marto's good mate Phil Hogan was invited by the President of the United States to attend his Brisbane speech at the G20 summit.

And as you can see and hear below his answer left us speechless.

"Sorry Barack, it's date night!," he said, on Triple M Brisbane's Grill Team.

Phil Hogan owns the popular Jade Buddha nightspot on Eagle Street Pier and he was the recipient of the QLD Young Achievers Entrepreneurs Award.

"I'm a fan of President and would love to hear him speak but I've just personally always had a policy that I never attend a function on the weekend unless my wife is invited." Listen to the full audio.
