It's a workplace hazard, but somehow Gus seems to do it the most.

Being on the radio, you're bound to have said something you regret from time to time.

No one can relate to that more than the white ant himself, Mr. Gus Worland.

We recently heard about how Google are saving a lot of people a lot of grief by putting in an 'unsend' button for email that you can set between 5 - 30 minutes.

Well, that got the boys thinking, what if you could do that with what you've said?!

They pitched some things to Gus that he should consider taking back... like that time he compared childbirth to a toothache or when listed the 5 worst players (in his mind) in the NRL.

That's just the tip of the iceberg though, watch the whole video for all of Gussy's ridiculous gaffs.

MG's rags to riches story is a bloody incredible one.

We recently saw the Insight program where he talked about his problems with anger but this recent Footy Show interview really shows the man for who he is.

The interview tells the story of the Mt. Druitt local, with hard working parents who struggled to make ends meet, the footy star turned angry enforcer, all the way up to the family man who turned his life around.

These days, as we all know he spends his time on the radio but also doing heaps of charity work in his spare time.

And of course, he is still a westie through and through.

Supergrass On Kyle & Jackie O, QLD Maroons, Gina Rinehart & More

Triple M's Supergrass delivers another week of rumour and innuendo.

The biggest story in the media over the weekend was that Kyle & Jackie O were reportedly offered a $12m offer to return to 2DayFM.

The story might be correct but the station is wrong, they’re supposedly been approached by NOVA with Fitzy and Wippa under performing.

"You know what it’s very hard to appear to be a Sydneysider when you’re not, he’s an AFL player… people know they’re not from Sydney," Gus said about Fitzy.


Other stories on the Supergrass table include:

- A member of the Queensland Maroons is currently in an ‘open relationship’ but that isn’t the scandalous part, it’s the behind the scenes stuff that’s causing friction in the camp.

"So maybe a team mate is doing the deed with his girlfriend?" asked MG.

"Ahh I’ve got to move on from this one," said Supergrass.

- Gina Rinehart had a 4 minutes cut from ‘House Of Hancock’ earlier in the year. Now she’s withdrawn the lawsuit and the production company will put the full version online.

- Horse racing in Victoria has been scrapped from the Sky Racing channels with Channel Seven taking over the rights and a new channel being made, Channel 78 with 24 hours horse racing.

- The Dancing with the Stars lineup for next year can be revealed and it includes Larry Emdur, Jude Bolton and his wife Lynette, John Paul-Young, the Bachelor Tim, Emma Friedman and NRL star Matty Rogers.

Mark Wahlberg Is A Bloody Legend

Ahead of the Ted 2 premiere the boys caught up with acting legend Mark Whalberg.

Mark Whalberg has to be one of the hardest working men in Hollywood.

As a movie star he trades blows between comedy like the upcoming massive Ted 2 movie and serious roles in action films like The Gambler, Lone Survivor and The Fighter.

Behind the scenes he also works as a producer for shows like Entourage and Whalburgers but it's Ted that's got to be one of his favourite roles and even his very first sequel.

Matty interviewed Mark Wahlburg after seeing Ted 2.

"Now, why Ted 2? Was it Seth McFarlane, did you enjoy working with him so much the first time?" asked Matty.

"I had a blast, you know I've never done a sequel before... the only reason worth doing it was we could make it better than the first and when Seth told me the idea I thought it was absolutely hysterical," said Mark.

"Couple of real surprise appearances [in Ted 2], Morgan Freeman as a civil rights lawyers and Tom Brady makes an appearance who actually is asleep.... and wakes up as you're trying to steal his sperm, I thought that was a nice touch," said Matty.

"Hahaha, yeah well we tried to figure out the ultimate sperm donor for Ted and you know our second choice was then Flash Gordon but he doesn't have any left," joked Mark.

"I've got to ask you Mark, where's the weirdest place you've been in the world and been recognised?" asked Matty.

"It's actually weird just to be recognised somewhere anyway, we were walking down the streets of the Champs-Elysees (in Paris) after playing golf and people were coming up and asking for pictures," said Mark.

Listen to the full interview where Mark Wahlberg told Matty about what it was like filming some of the ridiculous scenes from Ted 2, what it's like to be recognised around the world and the success of some of his produced shows like Entourage and Wahlburgers.

Well it only took a couple of days for the Blues win over the Maroons to be soured by Roosters centre and Origin II star Michael Jennings being charged with "offensive behaviour" on Saturday morning.

"Only in rugby league can you be man of the match in a State Of Origin and arrested just a few days later," said Matty.

"My understanding is that this is a very minor offense and it would be ridiculous for him to miss State Of Origin becaue of it," he continued.

 

The other big talking point was Blues and Bulldogs second row Josh Jackson's possible suspension for a lifting tackle on Jamie Soward.

"I don't think he'll miss Origin because of it, I've seen very similar and people not get penalised for it, I'd hate to see him miss Origin for that," said MG.

"If he does, if he misses State of Origin who comes in?" asked Matty.

"[Tyson] Frizell" said MG.

"I'm thinking maybe Fifita," said Matty.

Daniel Johns' Memories Of Silverchair, '97 Mad Monday and His New Album

Matty interviews long time mate and Newcastle local Daniel Johns about the bad old days and his brand new album.

Daniel Johns and Joey Johns (no relation) during the 1997 Newcastle Knights mad Monday celebrations.

Daniel Johns is, obviously, not your ordinary Newcastle bloke.

Growing up on the north coast, Daniel's life changed massively as an early teenager with Silverchair becoming on of the biggest artists in Australia and at the time, overseas.

Since then he's gone from strength to strength becoming Australia's most awarded artist (with over 20 ARIA's) and now recently released has his first solo album Talk.

As you would expect, growing up in Newey in the mid-90s, Matty and Joey knew Daniel, actually he grew up down the road and have shared some bloody funny times together.

"Living in Newcastle, it's always been a great musical city, it's produced so many unbelievable bands but they've always been those pub rock bands... they've never had a Daniel Johns and you come out of the blue, how crazy did life get for ya?"

"It was pretty weird, the start of Silverchair's career it's a strange time anyway when you're 14 years old... you don't really know who you are as a person let alone an artists so I felt that part of my life [was] pretty awkward," explained Daniel.

"I remember people from all over the world... they'd go [into] Australian phonebooks and the obviously knew you were from Mereweather, so they'd look up 'Johns' and 'Mereweather' and mate I'd be getting calls in the middle of the night asking 'where's Daniel?' sometimes if I was pissed I'd just pretend I was you..."

"Yeah, excellent, that's what I would do in the same situation," laughed Daniel.

"Another overwhelming moment, 1997, when you wake up in the morning... Andrew Johns is sitting at the end of your bed singing and dragging you out to Mad Monday [after winning the Grand Final], really, does it get any bigger than that?" joked Matty.

"That was absolutely one of the most bizarre wake up calls I've ever had," Daniel said.

"I remember you've turned up to mad Monday and we're all there and honestly Daniel I felt so sorry for you mate," said Matty.

"I was completely overwhelmed... I think my mum was downstairs, I still lived with my parents at that point and Andrew Johns rocks up at the back door and just comes in, walking up the stairs and had obviously been celebrating quite a hard, just busted into my bedroom... then [I] was chucked into a van and taken to Marathon Stadium," laughed Daniel.

"Hijacked..." said Matty.

"Exactly" responded Daniel.

Listen to the stories of Newcastle in the 90s below, playing massive gigs like Rock In Rio and his relationship with legendary producer Van Dyke Parkes.

 

Listen to the first half of the interview where Matty asked Daniel Johns about the new album and his need to 'always evolve' as a musician.

Morons Interrupt Moment’s Silence Before Origin II

The Grill Team have their say on the interrupted moment’s silence at the MCG.

Origin II got off to a sour start last night when a number of individuals shouted and yelled during a moment’s silence for Australian sporting legend Ron Clarke.

Clarke, one of Australia’s greatest ever runners, passed away on Wednesday at the age of 78.

As players and a vast majority of the crowd paused to pay their respects to Clarke shouts and jeers echoed around the MCG.

“Let’s face it, 90,900 were perfectly well behaved but it’s just the tiny, minute (individuals) that just spoil it,” Matty Johns told the Grill Team.

“The English Premier League gave up on that a little while ago. When the great George Best passed they had a minute’s applause which I think for sporting heroes is probably more apt,”

“It shows great respect and it just covers up the idiots. Unfortunately, but that’s just the way it is.”

Hayne Plane's Roosters Link

The Grill Team go over the biggest NRL topics from the weekend including the Titans revival, Origin and Jarryd Hayne's link to the Roosters

Jarryd Hayne on The Grill Team last year Photo: Triple M

Jarryd Hayne is back in town, having been in the US trying out for the San Francisco 49ers. He was spotted driving a Toyota Kluger - which there's nothing wrong with that - but it was supplied courtesy of Roosters boss Nick Politis! 

"Nick Politis is the patriarch of the Roosters and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is leaving the Roosters [so] there is a vacancy there," said Matty Johns, on Triple M Sydney's Grill Team. 

Now, we reckon no-one at the Roosters would like to see Jarryd Hayne fail in his bid to play NFL, but if he were to miss out could we see the former Dally M Player of the Year return to the NRL in a Roosters jersey?

"The question is, is there room in the salary cap," said Matty. Listen to the full audio below.
