Les Murray now – who next

For heavens sake – a state funeral for Les Murray!! I know he was a very good sports commentator (on Soccer) but that was what he was – a “sports commentator” of a sport that is far from being the Australian national game.
I am sure there would be someone who would qualify better to represent the real Australian game – started here in Australia and played and watched by many, many people every week….or in many other sports.
The “rot” started for the granting of state funerals with Kerry Packer, a businessman who worked for himself and when a state funeral was given to him, as far as I am concerned, it debased the value of a state funeral.
What next? The men who work on removing garbage in our streets, keep us healthy, do it cheerfully – they do it for us much more than most of others whose names come up in the papers.
Bill Shorten – I am surprised at you – and disappointed.
