I am just an assistant producer for the radio station dedicated to WAFL football
Well, I reckon that alone is a "footstep in front of (many) competitiors." Its a 'foot in the door' and in a sports oriented station - great gig to start with - who knows where it may lead? Work hard at it, give it 100% and good luck may well follow.
Thanks for the info on George - brings back memories. Now Dennis Commetti has assumed the 'role model' mantel for WA commentators - even in Vic he was recently rated in HUN poll (so mostly only Victorians voting) as the best in AFL and a book on his on air witticisms a top seller.
Anyway, back on topic, please keep up this thread on WAFL - unfortunately don't hear near enough (next to nothing) over here. I follow grass roots football more than AFL itself. As a budding sports journo and working in WAFL, I recommend, if you haven't already read it, the book "The Footballers: A History of Football in Western Australia" (pub 1985 G Christian, J Lee & B Messenger). You will note this was published prior to the AFL coming to Perth. If you know of any other worthwhile WA football history reads, would like to know.
