Bondis doing a great job and its great to have a window into the club at a very difficult time.

However drop the switching camera angles, actually made me feel sick!

Good God, if it's not Bondi, its the kit, or the beer, or the service, or the BoD, or the tannoy, or... (insert whinge here). Let the man grow into his role and get on with more important matters ie getting back to winning ways.

One of the main objectives of an interviewer is to help the interviewee answer the questions. It’s not about being Jeremy Paxman. Bondi’s style did nothing to help Andrea give clear answers. Borthwick was far more prepared and gave direct answers because he has been given training on how to face and address the media. He also gave away nothing more than he meant to.

It’s not just a question of the interviews being better than having nothing.

It is a reflection of the club and it’s supporters that critiquing and suggestions for improvement are seen as negative. Blind loyalty will not help the club improve, and every facet of this multi million pound entity must aspire to professionalism and continuous improvement.

Perhaps your original post came across as taking pleasure in making criticism rather than offering constructive and helpful suggestions.

I know it breaks the rules to say something positive on this forum but I now look forward to LTTV ( which is not something I always have said) and particularly Bondi’s interviews.

Falling chair during interviewing his new Boss - comedy gold :smt040

I wonder if we are allowed to make suggestions (Polite of course) for what goes on the whiteboard behind him?

Keep it up Bondi :smt023

One of the biggest things to come out of this is that it has brought people back to the Club through being informed of what is happening. The guests have been varied and some who you would not normally see such as the Club Doctor, Covid Manager, CEO talking in a relaxed manner rather than formal.
Bondi has his unique way of conducting the shows and seems to be very knowledgeable in his questions with the exception of one, "Geordie, can you tell us of any new signings?" :smt003

Or it’s a social media forum which 99% of the fans are enjoying and find informative. As others have said if you don’t enjoy it and can’t take it for what it is, don’t watch it

I totally agree. The interviews are entertaining, and in my view a great addition to our communications.
Keep them coming!

The LTTV haircut special is a must!

A certain barber by the name of D.Cole....
To win is not as important as playing with style!

I have to say the homespun charm of the LTTV segments has kept me entertained through this torrid time for our club. As for whiteboard suggestions, if I were Bondi I'd find the whinger commenters on here and put cheeky self reminders about whatever they've been whibbling about that week on the board, but then that's probably why they don't let me near the public at work :axe:
No, not that one!

Remember, whatever you do to the smallest of the backs you do to his prop, and you can't avoid the rucks and mauls forever...

I would suggest once Mr Cole is allowed to get hold of Sam he will need to be on permanent watch...bit like Kato & Inspector Clueso.
Or even my friend Inspector Clouseau! ~ I'm sure Telusa will be trying to avoid him! :smt002

Oh yes there are lots of beards to trim and long locks so "Barber Dan Cole" with the red and white pole should be involved on a LTTV hairlosing session ~ hardly hair raising!

Once we do get back to watching the games I can see the supreme talents of Bondi providing the on pitch halftime commentaries - it might even enlighten the "Big Boot Bondi!"
Yes Bondi & Welford but I would like to see Bondi & Wayne Barnes as that could be entertaining too. :smt038
