The South Sydney Rabbitohs, a rugby team partially owned by Russell Crowe, won the Australian National Rugby League championship yesterday, its first victory in 43 years. "It's all about the bunnies down here," said a Channel Nine reporter, live at the scene. Wrong. It was all about one fan's swinging dick.
Crowe's 2006 financial rescue of the team was a major subplot of the Souths' victory over the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, just as a guy in red in and green casually dropping trou and waving his donger at the camera for several seconds was a major subplot of the live post-game coverage.
Channel Nine's Tom Steinfort has already issued an apology for the on-air dick-flop, which, from an ignorant American perspective, was the only part of the rugby coverage that actually made sense.
Soooooo, the perils of live TV.....apologies for that nudity in my live cross just then
