Bomber Thompson: Essendon Players Will 'Start To Sue'

Explosive claims on the Hot Breakfast this morning.

Bomber Thompson believes that the Essendon supplement saga isn’t over despite players serving a year on the sidelines. 


Speaking with Eddie McGuire and Luke Darcy on Triple M’s Hot Breakfast, Thompson says players will sue the AFL.

"I don’t think it will be over next year either," Thompson said on Triple M.

When questioned further by Darcy, the former Geelong and Essendon coach revealed what he believes will happen once the players return from suspension.


LUKE DARCY: You said something before Bomber, you don’t think it’s over next year. The players return, they’ve got no further sanctions, why isn’t it over next year?

BOMBER THOMPSON: Because they will start to sue.

DARCY: Sue the club? Sue the AFL?

THOMPSON: AFL. About $50-million probably.

DARCY: Have the players told you they are going to do that?

THOMPSON: No, I just know it is going to happen.

DARCY: Have you got a case Bomber?

THOMPSON: I’m not interested in doing it, no.

Mick Molloy UNLOADS On The Tigers

"There was just no hope, no light, no chance that you were ever going to win."

Mick Molloy has unloaded on Richmond following their loss to Hawthorn on the weekend.

Sunday was the first time Mick had taken his two young boys to a footy game describing it as a ‘baptism of fire’.

“Get used to it boys. These have been coming down the pipe for years,” Mick said on Triple M’s Hot Breakfast.

“It was a classic Richmond effort. It was pretty insipid, didn’t go anywhere. Capitulated late. There was just no hope, no light, no chance that you were ever going to win."

“They never deviated from the game plan which is a load of shite. Which is just chip around very slow, move it sideways.”

“I would hate to be a key forward at Richmond because it takes that long to move the ball down the ground that you are absolutely swamped by the time it gets there.”

Mick went onto say the club need to consider making some massive changes in the off-season.

“The only excuse could be, if they are working away at some major seismic overhaul of the club. Because if nothing much occurs, if they rearrange a couple of the deckchairs on the Titanic and we all end up in the same position next year I’m going to go mad.”

“I’d like to hear something from the club. A mission statement about where we are at… Just tell us where we are.”

Mark ‘Jacko’ Jackson Launches Extraordinary Attack On Mike Sheahan

Drama at Fox Footy.

Mark ‘Jacko’ Jackson has verbally attacked Mike Sheahan during the filming of the latest episode of Open Mike.

Sheahan joined Triple M’s Hot Breakfast this morning to explain what unfolded.

“I am a bit shellshocked, still,” Mike said on Triple M.

“Fox management were keen for me to talk to Jacko, I must say I wasn’t quite as enthusiastic but we all do what we are told,” he said.

“As soon as we did the intro he just launched. He unleashed this fury that had been building for 30-years. I’m a big boy and I’ve been in confrontations before but probably not to this level.”

“It is unsettling to hear someone say that no-one respects you or likes you. Not withstanding the fact that I knew there was history between us.”

“It was pure fury in a verbal sense.”

In a preview to the program on the Fox Footy website a clearly fired up Jackson launches a array of verbal attacks on Sheahan.

“I just don’t like you Mike,” he says.

Crownbet's Matty Campbell On The Hot Breakfast

The Game Just Changed

Matty Campbell from Crownbet was back on Hot Breakfast with the odds on the weekend's big sporting action. 

The Kangaroos might be slight favourites in tonight's big game, but the value bet might well be the Pies, which was music to Eddie's ears.

Money has firmly been on Adelaide in their game with the Cats and the Doggies are favourites against St Kilda but they'll have a big battle on their hands with both sides having such a strong record at the Etihad. 

Matty also took a look at the latest odds in the race for the Coleman medal, which isn't as clear cut as we expected. 

And finally there's a look at Juventus vs Melbourne Victory in the Intercontinental Cup. Eddie fancies a big Black & White Double this weekend so Matty had the odds for him on that...

Some Melburnians Are Going To Extraordinary Lengths To Arm Themselves

“I got mine on eBay. The cheapest one possible and the biggest one.”

Triple M’s Hot Breakfast were inundated with call this morning from Melbourne residents who taking extraordinary steps to arm themselves in their own home.

There are reports that Baseball bats are in short supply across Melbourne’s west as frightened residents purchase them for protection.

Triple M listener Jordan from Hopper’s Crossing says he recently bought a bat for security.

“I got mine on eBay. The cheapest one possible and the biggest one,” Jordan said on Triple M.

“It’s more of a deterrent. I mean I don’t want to use it. I’ve got a lot of car parts out back and it’s more just to come in there and scare them off if anything.”

Peter from St Albans says he has gone one step further than a bat.

“I bought more than that, I can tell you now, I am ready to go. I’ve got a baseball bat, I’ve got a pick, I’ve got a handle, I’ve got many other things ready go. I can prove that things aren’t working in the Western suburbs and many other suburbs as well,” Peter said.

“Many other blokes around the areas, they are just as bad as me. Ready to go to protect their family.”

Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton told the Hot Breakfast that purchasing weapons is an overreaction to the issue at hand.

“Arming yourself with things in your home is a dangerous thing to do and really and overreaction to what we are currently seeing,” Mr Ashton told Eddie, Mick and Darce on the Hot Breakfast.

“The fact is if you’re arming yourself with a baseball bat, if you think that is going to be an adequate deterrent for a group of people breaking into your home. That’s probably going to end fairly barely unless you are Jason Bourne or something,” he said.

“Taking on a gang, just with yourself and a baseball bat just in a underwear at night. It’s not going top go well so the best thing to do is call police.”

“It is an overreaction, because Victoria, certainly Melbourne is one of the safest cities in the world. You’ve got to keep that in perspective.”

“Your chances of being a victim of a home invasion are very, very low. But the fact is we can’t turn a blind eye to the fact that we are getting increasingly violent offending from some young people.”

Chief Commissioner Ashton is holding a youth summit at the MCG today which will aim to tackle the rise in serious teen crime.

Motorcyclist Speaks Out Following Sickening Maribyrnong Crash

“That Driver Should Be Brought To Justice”

Two motorcyclists are in hospital after a sickening crash in Maribyrnong over the weekend.

Dashcam footage of the incident shows the pair of riders on Raleigh Road about 1.40pm on Sunday.

The vision shows the motorcyclists being collected as the car turns into oncoming traffic.

One of the men spoke with the Hot Breakfast from his hospital bed, calling for the driver to be "brought to justice".

"The driver pulled out straight in front of us. We were doing the limit just cruising along and she has just pulled out without even looking," Steve told Triple M’s Hot Breakfast.

"Our bike have got headlights on, they are not quiet bikes so you can hear them coming. And she has just pulled straight out in front of us," he said.

"If you do 5kms over the limit you get fined. She nearly took 2 peoples lives, and I reckon that is pretty serious."
