Podcast #39 – Boxing and the Johnny Famechon Statue Project, As Well As The Closing of the Centre of Excellence

Once again thank you to those who downloaded the last podcast, we are averaging four figure downloads which is great.

On this show our interview it to do with recognising an Australian Legend in boxer Johhny Famechon. Gary Luscombe has been on the show previously and we are pleased to say that WA companies supported the Johnny Famechon Statue project. They are so close to completion and only looking for $19,000. You can contribute by purchasing memorabilia or purchasing tickets to the unveiling next year.

We must apologise for the sound issue at the start of this show.

In our topics under discussion Ashley looks at the closing down of the Centre of Excellence by the FFA. This was the AIS program that was supposed to develop the next generation of Socceroo. The FFA listened to their imported coaches and changed the way the system operated and now are going to rely on A-League clubs to develop players. Is this going to be good for Australian football?

With our second topic, John asked the question whether there is too much sport? We have seen cricket increase the number of its international fixtures in various formats, but is this what the fans really want? Are we simply being served too much international sport and is the quality being compromised?
