Sad news of the passing of legendary Channel 0 / Channel 10 commentator Phil Gibbs.
He called a great number of VFA games through the 70s and 80s.
Very sad news. VFA on a Sunday as well as the second division for Saturdays was legendary. Phil was a very good commentator and host with a wealth of knowledge. Was also invovlved when CH0 use to televise the races at long gone racetracks like Heathcote, Rochester and Bacchus Marsh.
With the passing of Phil Gibbs there are not too many of the old callers left. Ted Henrys, Craig Kelly, Bill Jacobs are not with us.
Peter Sharp is still around as is Don Hyde. Peter Sharp has been in Tassie for many years. Don Hyde was also a great caller.
