    AFL media

    I honestly have no idea where to put this, but I'm sure people will have an opinion on it.

    2019 Movers and Shapers: 50-41

    46. Damian Barrett

    Journalist and broadcaster

    One of the leading football journalists for many years, he is now the face of AFL.com.au and will play a leading role with breaking news, analysis and feature interviews. He will also feature in the AFL Record and will continue his association with Triple M, the Sunday Footy Show (having ditched the Thursday night edition) and The Sounding Board podcast which he co-hosts with his old boss Craig Hutchison.

    He is one of the pre-eminent news breakers and it’s always an anxious moment for the game’s big names when his number appears on their telephone. But regulars to his podcast will know he is no beat-up merchant and he works and fact checks diligently before he runs with a big story.

    Words just have no meaning to some people, do they?

    That was the line I thought would make RWOers heads explode

    Yes, I feel as though it should have the tag, 'Written and authorised by D. Barrett, Melbourne, Victoria'.

    This movers and shakers list compiled by SEN is a fantasy world in the tradition of Barret's Sliding Doors column. Total w..k

    If it doesn't neatly fit in an existing thread, start a new thread rather than tack it onto a thread on a completely different topic.

    Quality laugh for a Monday morning....

    A lot of it is self indulgence.
