Ep 077 – Australia Make The Soccer World Cup While Italy And The Dutch Miss Out

This is the MugPunters.com.au podcast for Thursday 16th November 2017 and in our breaking news headlines this week: Australia is heading to the football world cup despite more draws than an entire Ikea bedroom furniture department. Meanwhile, football powerhouses Italy and the Netherlands will miss out proving for once and for all that Australia is a far superior soccer nation. Former 10 time world boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya has called out Conor McGregor claiming he’s been secretly training for the last five months and suggests he’s faster and stronger than ever before. Well, get in line Oscar, because so far McGregor has been called out by former sparring partner Paul Malignaggi, current welterweight champion Aussie Jeff Horn and that’s not even to mention the others lining up for biffo in Warren Ryan, James Packer and I believe Bartz even you’ve put your hand up for a slice of the Pay Per View purse if Conor is interested? And Ian Botham has come out ahead of the Ashes suggesting David Warner and Steve Smith could end up with “serious back pain” given they will have to carry Australia’s batting load in the upcoming series. Ricky Ponting has hit back (no, not like the incident at the Bourbon and Beefsteak a few years back, verbally I mean) and suggested that Botham should know what back pain feels like, having had to constantly carry the fact that he’ll always be a whinging old Pommy git. Well, no Ricky didn’t actually say […]

This is the MugPunters.com.au podcast for Thursday 9th November 2017 and in our breaking news headlines this week: The Socceroos have arrived in Honduras with a do or die date with destiny awaiting. I’m not even referring to their match this weekend, that’s just their transfer to get from the hotel to the ground With the ashes getting closer by the minute, Mitchell Starc has reminded English batsmen they would probably be better off boarding the plane with the Socceroos to Honduras as he toyed with WA in a Sheffield Shield match in Sydney taking two hat-tricks in the same match. Meanwhile the English top order has suggested they hold no fears for the upcoming ashes as most of them only took up cricket in the last few months and aren’t even sure what a Mitchell Starc is anyway And South Australian jockey Dylan Caboche has sent his own warning signals to horses everywhere after dismounting behind the barriers and giving his horse a stiff uppercut for not behaving the way he wanted. Calls were immediately made for punters everywhere to be allowed the same luxury of dealing with jockeys themselves when they also fail to deliver as expected PLUS We’ve got tips for: Oaks Day – if you listen to the pod early!

Ep 074 – Contains Inside Knowledge That Will Change Your Racing Bets This Weekend And Much More

This is the MugPunters.com.au podcast for Thursday 26th October 2017 and in our breaking news headlines this week: Conor McGregor has once again dropped a bombshell with yet another fighter coming out of the woodwork to challenge the MMA star in a big money fight. Mug Punters can report that former NRL player, coach and commentator Warren Ryan is the latest to line up the Irishman after he had a successful comeback to the MMA arena by defeating some drunk 76 year old retiree at a pub in Sydney. Sources tell us that the fight was started after it was claimed that the chrome rims on Ryan’s walker weren’t street legal I know this is going to sound ridiculous gents but there’s outrageous allegations of match fixing once again in Cricket. Stranger still is that people are suggesting it’s taking place in India ahead of their One Day International with the Kiwi Black Caps. I know, I know… a long bow to draw indeed. For us at Mug Punters, we just wish the witch hunt would stop because we have absolute faith that any of our bets placed on sport on the sub continent are always decided fairly And as the Rugby League World Cup prepares to kick off, it has once again failed to be recognised as an international sport. Unfortunately gents, I’m not actually joking here, but this time, League has been left on the bench as sports such as foot golf, dodgeball and kettlebell lifting are elevated […]

This is the MugPunters.com.au podcast for Thursday 19th October 2017 and in our breaking news headlines this week. Grab yourselves a beer gents, these might take a while: Paul “The Fatman” Vautin has been given the ass by Channel Nine without even being given the common courtesy of a goodbye episode after 23 bloody years. Sources suggest The Fat was booted whilst on an end of season holiday and despite the fact I haven’t bothered watching the same homophobic jokes, head wobbles and sexual innuendos for about 8 years myself, that doesn’t mean you can treat the longest running prime time tv host ever in Australia like this – wait… was that a 60 second soapbox? And Angela Postecoglou… no wait… sorry Ange Postecoglou is set to sensationally quit the Socceroos coaching job even if they do manage to qualify for the World Cup next year. Just like Craig David and to a lesser extent Lisa Wilkinson, Angela, sorry Ange is set to be Walkin Away and word on the street gents is that it has to do with the fact he’s sick of wankers calling him Angela and that the Aussie national side is still called the Socceroos and not the Footballroos And David Warner has come out ahead of the Ashes series asking umpires to let the banter and sledging flow like State of Origin football. I’m with you Dave. Get rid of this nanny state of dribble where a crap stare down from a medium paced English […]

This is the MugPunters.com.au podcast for Thursday 12th October 2017 and in our breaking news headlines this week: In a stunning turn of events, the USA will NOT be making an appearance at the 2018 soccer world cup after an embarrassing defeat to Trinidad and Tobago this week. Meanwhile, Americans remain as confident as ever that they will still be able to produce world champions in the NFL Richmond president Peggy O’Neal has confirmed the club is indeed investigating some photos that depict a nude woman holding a sherrin footy and wearing one of the Tigers premiership medals. I can also confirm that the team at Mug Punters have been investigating the photos closely and although the medal seems legitimate, we are still unsure as to whether it’s a regulation Sherrin in the picture and thus will probably need the careful investigations to continue And Conner McGregor is back from his well earned vacation after making his boxing debut against one of the greatest of all time. Now it seems the Irishman has set his sights on the WWE, claiming that the current crop of stars are “dweebs” and that he wants to get in the ring with them and have a “real knock”. I’m not sure how many of Mayweather’s golden gloves McGregor ate, but someone should probably tell him that the WWE isn’t actually real wrestling.

Roosters coach Trent Robinson has suggested although it’s tough his team can’t be there Sunday, it’s always easier bowing out in oblivion than being embarrassed on the big stage Richmond’s Dusty Martin has taken out the Brownlow Medal this week ahead of Saturday’s AFL Grand Final against the Crows. He wasn’t the only player who polled well on the night though, as you only needed to look at some of the wives and girlfriends on the red carpet to get an idea of what happens after the players head home England’s Ashes campaign has been dealt a blow after Ben Stokes was arrested in the early hours of Monday morning following what is described as an “incident” in Bristol.

When asked about the deal, Bogut says he is excited to head to LA and looks forward to his new extended role of assisting the development of the Mexican league where he hopes to watch some games of Juan on Juan Rumours are flying around that JT may yet have a pivotal role in the action this Saturday night when the Roosters take on the Cowboys in the NRL semi final.

Ep 068 – Massive Footy Finals Preview With Head To Head And Multi Specials

This is the MugPunters.com.au podcast for Thursday 14th September 2017 and in our breaking news headlines this week: With just five months to go before the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea, organisers are concerned as to the lack of ticket sales. Games officials are hopeful fans are waiting until the last minute to get on board with the Olympic spirit and fans are hopeful North Korea don’t wipe the peninsula off the map in the time being West Coast’s Luke Shuey has ended Port Adelaide’s 2017 premiership run with a goal after the extra time siren. Furious Port Adelaide chairman David Koch said after the game that “players who were happy being in the AFL rather than striving to win a premiership had no place at the club.” Strong words from the bloke who I still look at as a finance reporter for the evening news and has no place on breakfast television. And in a stunning surprise, fans of NRL clubs eliminated in the first week of the finals all blame the refs. Sure, there were some decisions dodgier than Lance Armstrong in there, though let’s be honest folks… if your team was any good, they a- wouldn’t have been playing in an elimination final and b- would still be good enough to beat the opposition because the same referees with the same 50/50 decisions come out every single week. Unless you’re a storm supporter, because I’m not sure any of this applies to Cameron Smith. And we’ve […]
