Preparations for the rugby league Grand Final paused for a few hours today, as the man who called 33 of them was farewelled.

And fittingly, it was in the heart of Manly where legends of the game said goodbye to the doyen of commentators, Frank Hyde. Two days out from the decider, rugby league greats big and small converged on Manly's Mary Immaculate Church to honour a man who had seen and called it all. Frank Hyde commentated 33 grand finals in a row, affecting the game's gladiators. his death last Sunday deeply

He's like a brother to me to the public - of a lot of people. he got into the hearts to remember an icon. Hundreds gathering somewhere now looking down saying, I can imagine Frank sitting down there "Look at all these silly buggers "congregating because I'm dead." Memories came flooding back

(All sing) # The pipes are glowing from glen to glen. # To borrow one from the vast Frank Hyde phrasebook, the line-up of footy legends paying their respects was certainly long enough, their thoughts of him high enough,

to get straight to the point when asked if we'll see or hear his like again. I don't think it is to be contemplated - there is one Frank Hyde alone. Norths to a grand final once, And even if he did lead arch-rivals who he'd cheering for. Manly fans have no doubt I'm sure. I'm sure he's barracking for Manly,

The people in Melbourne don't even care about rugby league - go Manly! Most of these kids weren't even born when Manly last won a premiership. What do you think you'll do if they win on Sunday night? Probably run around the house naked! Today they were covering up in anything maroon and white. I notice you're actually wearing a bag. Oh! She could have borrowed a jersey off fellow fanatic Stephen Lucas -

he's got 54 of them. And that's not an isolated incident -

You wear a Manly jersey on the side

of the road and someone will scream

out, Many Sucks!

Manly have long been the team the people of NSW love to hate but the reality is if they want the trophy to stay here they'll have to board the Manly bandwagon.

The rest of the State may take some convincing - the reality is... you either love Manly or you hate them, and I hate them.

It's hereditary, I think. My father hated it, his grandfather... It's nothing new to the Brookvale faithful. I think I can see a bit of Max Killich's blood down there. Number one supporter Thomas Kenealley concedes even Melbourne's probably more popular

amongst the rest of Sydney's league fans. It's a question of comparative contempt - what do Sydneysiders dislike most? If they didn't win there'd be no tears coming out. Former Wests coach Roy Masters could be to blame. Well they continually push this God's-country view of the universe. He branded them the Silvertails during the '70s and '80s. while championing class warfare They like being hated, and I'll tell you what, they'll hate them even more if they win.

if the Howard Government is re-elected. Only one third of the road from Sydney to Brisbane is dual carriageway. As many as 25 people per year losing their lives in crashes. Labor is sceptical about the funding promise, demanding to know where the money will come from. Wild scenes today in Canberra They were demonstrating against a deadly showdown in their home country where at least nine people died

as the military cracked down on a pro-democracy uprising.

And new rules to govern the way hospitals treat pregnant women, following the shocking ordeal endured by Jana Horska, who miscarried in a toilet. All pregnant women attending emergency departments will now be referred to maternity units. Footy fever is catching.

They believe that expensive ads

are politicising sport.

Here we go. Hup! Well done. Aussie Rules clearly isn't the Labor leader's talent. is party has turned to two former footy greats to tackle the Government over taxpayer-funded advertising - rugby league legend Tommy Raudonikis lending his voice to attack the ads this weekend. ADVERTISEMENT: Tommy Raudonikis here. There's something going on right now that just wrong. And for AFL followers Peter 'Crackers' Keenan takes a swipe,

Grand finals are about playing footy, not playing politics. Labor estimates the Government is spending up to $1 million a day on the taxpayer-funded ads. This is starting to corrupt our democracy. But when it comes to democracy, Mr Rudd makes no apologies for dumping 100 years of tradition of the Labor ministry, to be the sole selector should he win government. He says it's time for the party to modernise.

In the past, the Labor leader has effectively been handed a list by the factions

as to who should hold the top posts. Not anymore.

I'm concerned about one thing,

which is the best team of talented individuals to serve the interests of Australia. John Howard hasn't ruled out quitting politics if he wins his seat but his Government loses the election. I don't know. I just obviously have to give thought to my future.
