Sports (Talk about balls here.)
Broady, Tom, Jay the discussion isn't about the most famous sportsman synomonous to Wigan but the most famous from Wigan.
Whilst I'm not a wrestling fan it can't be disputed that just the wwe or former wwf is watched in 145 different countries and beamed in over 500 million homes. It's got the 2nd highest viewing figures on sky after football around the uk and there's other companies.
If we are talking about the most famous Wigan sportsman that people instantly associate Wigan with then I'm sorry to all you rugby fans but it's dave Whelan! He's literally bought himself the mr Wigan title.
I asked the missus if she knew any of the people we are talking about, she knows Whelan but that's from me going the football and she knows the British bulldog from when she was a kid but surprisingly she knew Sean Edwards..........as Heather smalls ex husband! She was surprised to find out he played a sport! Being a avoided she threw up a good name though, Roger hunt.
