Damian Barrett Reveals Why Bernie Vince OINKED On The Nine News

Damian Barrett has revealed why Melbourne's Bernie Vince "oinked" at the end of his cross with Channel 9 news last night. 

It was a throw back to the classic "Chompers" sign off which was made famous last year - much to the annoyance of Tony Jones.

However, Barrett says it was an in joke among Melbourne players...

Last night, Bernie Vince re-introduced the sign off.

JB: What’s with the oink?!

DB: I don’t think TJ’s taken too kindly to it. But to give Bernie his due - I think we can take this to the bank - I asked Bernie what he meant by that. He reckons it’s a word that Melbourne players use when ‘something happens’ - like when they’re playing golf and a putt goes in they all go “OINK!”

BB: Or if there’s a really good drive - “OINK!”

DB: I’m buying that.
