Podcast #33 – Cricketer Greg Dyer, the Super Rugby debacle and Athlete Responsibility

There has been plenty happening in sport in recent weeks and in this podcast we look to try and cover off a few.

On this show we have as our guest former Australian Wicketkeeper Greg Dyer. Following Virat Kohl branding Australian Captain Steve Smith a cheat during the recent tour of India, we would talk to Greg Dyer as here was a player who was also given such a label during his playing career. The difference was he was never allowed to front the media and give his view of events. Dyer’s cricket career not just at Test level was over within a year. We also discuss how a professional athlete copes with their career coming to a close. This is a long interview but we are sure that you will find it interesting.

In our topics under discussion John looks at the Western Force and whether those who made the decision to expand Super Rugby are taking any responsibility for that decision now the competition is being trimmed back to 15 teams. Ashley questions sporting organisations protecting athletes who break the rules outside of ether jobs. Should these athletes have to face the consequences of ether behaviour like the common man? Are clubs in fact doing them a dis-service by protecting them?

We hope that you enjoy the show as usual and would love to hear your thoughts so feel free to share them with us, but no swearing please.

    Great Podcast as always. How good was Greg Dyer? Brilliant interview and he came across as a great guy. I remember the treatment he received at the WACA it was awful. He is obviously a special individual to come through that and still be so positive. Clearly loves the game and feels honoured to have played for Australia. Wonderful stuff.
