Sorry but I think Barassi is a self-serving wanker. Never liked him.
Ice Temple everyone is entitled to thier opinion about a person.
My opinion, having met Ron Barassi when I lived in Mildura, his public persona may come across as a bit self serving, the man himself is a charming, well spoken, old school manners and a gentleman. Enjoyed his company very much.
I was there the day the point post broke. It was lucky for the Matthews legend that he was knocked back into it, with the extra force and timing giving it some sort of stress fracture, otherwise it would have been fine.
Of course if Dustin had broke a point post, he would have been rubbed out for the season.
