Goanning ... Goanning ... Gone.

I hear Australia's richest man, founder of World Series Cricket, and owner of Channel 9, Kerry Packer, died this morning.

The way the aging rabble of former Test cricketers - who somehow pass themselves off as TV commentators - has been rabbiting on about the Goanna's death would make you think Nelson Mandela had passed away.

Richie, Bill, Tony and Ian have been pestering Australian cricket fans all day with reminders that a special extended Channel 9 news will air tonight to remind us of just how great a bloke Packer was.

I wonder if Channel 9 will do the same when Rupert Murdoch dies?
