Mandy's Maroons Tattoo

Some people will do anything to get into our One Eyed Maroons Party

Only the BIGGEST MAROONS FANS were allowed through the front door of the XXXX Brewery for our State Of Origin Party for Origin One.  

Mandy called up saying she'd prove her dedication by getting a Queensland tattoo.. Marto wanted her to get Big Mal's face on her shoulder... .fortunately for Mandy that wasn't possible in such a short time...So we went with a very Queensland tattoo.

Marto went with her to check she was ok. In a strange twist it was Marto who wasn't.  

Huge thanks to the guys from UBET

Michelle KO's Floyd Mayweather On Domestic Violence

Michelle's challenge for people to 'Get your priorities right'

The Grill Team's Michelle today challenged people to get their priorities right regarding Floyd Mayweather. Annoyed by the lack of attention media had given to his domestic violence record and his complete lack of remorse on the issue.  

Michelle expressed her anger that despite 2 women dying every day in Australia from domestic violence, thousands of us still chose to celebrate this man. 

"He might be a 5 division world champion but you have to remember he’s a 7 time domestic violence offender & a denier of that fact”

"There are a lot of comments I have read since the fight of.. Oh it’s got nothing to do with his boxing well you know what it’s got EVERYTHING to do with who he is”

 “If it sits all right with you that 'Oh I just watch him for the boxing' maybe just today sit down and have a think why that’s ok for you”

 “Remember first that he’s a domestic violence perpetrator and then that he can box, because THAT’s who this guy is”.

The phone line jammed with men and women calling to thank Michelle for speaking up about a subject "that until now appeared had just been pushed under the carpet".

Grant Hackett Talks To The Grill Team Post Race

Grant Hackett Talks To The Grill Team Post Aussie Championships

Grant Hackett

Grant Hackett caught up with The Grill Team after his amazing swim at The Australian Swimming Championships to talk times, and old age....

On making the Aussie Team Grant told The Grillers “I can’t believe I’m actually on the team” and “I never thought I’d be swimming this quick”.  “I’m in touch now, and I’ve only got to do a little more work to get myself into being one of those top two positions”

On being one of  'The Old Guy On The Team' he says he was gutted to catch a replay and see he's now got grey hairs, and he also admitted nowadays he's finding harder to see the times up on the screen – in the pool he accidentally told new Aussie Freestyle Champ Mack Horton (who has worse eyesight than Grant) the wrong time when he asked him what time he'd done.

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.
