.Yonks ago, when Saturday midday meant The Goons on the radio, Thursday nights were for the happy strangeness of League Teams. Three former greats of Aussie Rules football announcing the weekly line-ups of the (then) VFL teams. Doesn't sound like much. Black and white, one or two cameras, no razzamatazz. They sat there, side by side, and talked. Not even that. Mostly it was only two of them talking, Bob Davis (Geelong) and Lou 'The Lip' Richards (Collingwood), while Jack 'Captain Blood' Dyer (Richmond) looked ahead blankly, possibly bemused. What was going on in that old ruckman's head, we wondered?

If you got it, if you liked it, you loved them.
Jack died in 2003, aged 89. Now Bob's gone, last night, aged 82.
