Media tart Moore knows how to fire up the crowd

WHAT about Billy Moore? He is fair dinkum a media tart of the highest order and in the words of Seinfeld's Cosmo Kramer: "Leave me alone Jerry, you know this is my busy time of year."

I spoke to the man himself nearly a week after Origin 3 and his voice was still hoarse. It sure is Billy Mania and good luck to him; he looked super going out the tunnel the other night to warm the crowd up with his Queenslander call.

He actually told me that he had to get there in the afternoon to rehearse what he was going to do? No script, but I do ask why would you need one? All has to do is yell 'Queenslander'.

So after he finished his thing the producer told him it was only a minute and they had to actually go for two minutes so Billy asked, "what do want me to do?" They replied "whatever you want, just fire the crowd up." He reckons his initial thoughts were "Gallen is a wanker" but decided against picking on poor old Paul.

Whatever he did worked, so he might have a job forever.
