Time Magazine have their poll, and we at The Gurglers have ours – the 2017 Gurgler Person of the Year. It is under way for another year and our next nomination is one of Australia’s finest sporting commentating teams – Roy and HG.
Unlike Time magazine, we give the ultimate power back to the readers and let you decide the ultimate winner. Voting will open soon once all nominations have been announced.
The Gurgler’s 2017 Person of the Year is a celebration of the people we think are important or deserving of some much needed limelight, not necessarily the most famous people on the face of the earth, in fact some would have barely heard of some of our nominees. Possibly not with Roy and HG, but they do have a cult following, and especially by us.
That’s the way we like it, celebration the forgotten, the underappreciated, the unsung heroes, the lesser lights, the Gurgler People of the Year.
You can also Vote for 2017 Jerk of the Year. But we’re trying to be a little more positive here for the 2017 Person of the Year.
2017 PERSON OF THE YEAR – NOMINATION 3
ROY AND HG
Roy and HG returned to the airwaves full time in 2017 after a successful mini return doing an hour long Olympics show in 2016, and what a welcome return it was.
Sure it was on commercial radio on Triple M, which means it didn’t take long to be the best thing on that station, but the Saturday morning slot allowed for the meandering conversation that was more akin to the good ol’ Sunday afternoons on Triple M.
It that conversation was good, up to the standard of old, and they focused on the subjects too often neglected or completely avoided by mainstream sports coverage.
For instance, here is some of Roy and HG’s best topics from their 2017 run.
- Matt Lodge planting the flag for rugby league in New York
- Ex Sportspeople top replace Chaplains at every school. Featuring: Willie Mason, Dalai Lama and Winx.
- How kids can get a bet on
- How to move “Books”
- Don’t the Chinese love Winx?
- Gold Coast to become the permanent home of the Commonwealth Games and everything else.
- Doggo to replace Keno in our Casino, providing employment for thousands of Greyhounds.
- Grub of the Year
- Nude areas available at Australian Sporting venues.
They will be back in 2018, and move to a Sunday morning, which shouldbe even better as they get to digest the Saturday action in addition to the usual banter.
We sure can’t wait for more.
If you want to thank Roy and HG for their year long discussion about rugby league in New York, Special K Tennis Players and Winx racing a luxury car, throw your support behind them in the voting for 2017 Gurgler Person of the Year. Coming soon.
