The Tip Sheet turns itself over to the fans this week as Sixties and Forty20 are joined by a fascinating ensemble cast of Blue & Gold stalwarts.
First up is a rising star in the domain of professional eating. James Webb, who competed in front of over 40000 people to finish 3rd in Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog eating contest, talks to the boys about how he fell into the world of competitive eating. You’ll be stunned by how much food this athletic bloke can consume in one day.
James’ journey and achievements over a short period have been amazing, but there is footy to be discussed.
It turns out that a chance meeting with Nathan Hindmarsh set him on the path to supporting the Parramatta Eels.
The Parramatta Prophet (James Ada) is our second guest this week.
Fellow fans most likely recognise James for his amazing costumes at CommBank Stadium home games.
Believe us, you won’t mistake who he is!
With appearances as a pharaoh, The Mask, Woody, and Laa- Laa to name but a few, the Prophet brings extra colour to the footy.
Growing up in North Parramatta, and with a father who bleeds Blue and Gold, James was destined to be Parra to the core. So why did he take it that step further?
The boys talk to James about his passion for the Eels and entertainment, and the joys that connection has brought to young Parra fans.
The Tip Sheet then goes international as last up is Ron who hails from the US of A.
Ron provides a fascinating insight into international fandom after discovering the NRL during the COVID lockdown. The trio discuss how he became a fan of the Eels, what his learning process was and how he has connected to other fans over here in Australia.
Ron is passionate in his belief that rugby league is a gem that if marketed correctly would find many more supporters in America.
His observations on the game and some of the biggest stars make for compelling listening.
Of course there is a huge game facing the Eels this week, so Sixties and Forty20 quiz each guest on Parramatta’s journey through the 2022 season as well as the unfinished business that lies ahead!
Go you mighty Eels!
