Peter Brackley Football Italia commentator for Channel 4


#905

Another great iconic sports person. Think he used to do midweek commentary for BBC Radio 2 Sports, pre-5-Live. Or was it itv?


#906

A very good commentator, knowledgeable and treated the viewer as if they had a bit of intelligence. No endless waffle or talking up a shite game.


#907

Apparently he was a comedian as well and worked on Spitting image.

Loved watching Football Italia on Channel 4 back in the 90s


#908

Paul Allen co-founder of Microsoft.

Also owner of the Seattle Seahawks


#909

and Portland Trail Blazers I think


#910

Also has/had one of the most glorious business cards ever known to mankind.

Not a big fan of Huey Lewis and The News though I believe.


#911

I think he missed a great global comedic opportunity by not renaming the team the Seattle Shitehawks.

The King of Tory Island Patsy Dan Rodgers has died aged 74.

Mr Rogers passed away at the Mater Hospital in Dublin surrounded by his family on Friday.

He was born on Westland Row in Dublin, but was later adopted by a family on Tory Island, a mere few miles off the coast of Donegal.

Although only speaking English at the time of his adoption, he would quickly fall in love with the Irish language and culture of the Island.
