I was a bit young when Askin & Galea were in their prime
By my reckoning that colourful pair paled into inconsequence in the mid 70s.
When you claim to have been bestriding the overs in both Sin City and mellow Melbourne each jet-setting weekend.
So while not in their prime, there was some overlap.
To the best of my knowledge that duo was into overturning despised wowser anachronisms such as sly grog, two up and casinos.
A far cry from drugs, child prostitution, money laundering and extortion that the new breed of Freemans and same seem to be hitting the headlines with.
