Unsung Hero: Murray The Magpie



How good has Murray been this year? I think whoever they have in the suit is doing a great job, and really entertaining to watch (which is what you want from a mascot). And I've noticed over the past couple of games he's been getting a little more "naughty" showing his butt whilst the opposition shoot free throws, hanging from the back of the rings etc.

I just had to dedicate a Thread to him :-)

Keep it up Murray!!!

I certainly agree.

I was almost the victim of a robbery from Murray during the Hodge stomp game. Murray snuck behind and removed my hat, but kindly handed it back when I turned around. I laughed and said "cheers Murray"

Loved the energy and entertainment it's delivered all season.

murrays got heaps more energy this year, i love his pre game rev ups of bouncin around punchin the air, then yawning at the away teams lol. An his flips on the baseline when the away team is shootin foul shots is gold. Every game this year ive said murray needs a pay rise cos he has been classic this year


who ever you are murray you are freakin awesome!!!!

Murray has been a highlight this year for sure.

Sat the row below the concourse on Wednesday, the kids love him, running up and hugging him, having their picture taken etc.

Whatever it is that Murray is on to get all that energy on game nights, needs to shared with the rest of the team.

Murray is so much better than Sam Dunk ever was.

I think Mike Chappell has the job of Murray this year. Maybe Cortez is still required next season after all.

Absolutely agree. Must be a new person this season much more athletic and entertaining.
We also have a much better compare this year, he is able to get the crowd more into the games. Not to fault the previous one, he tried hard.

There are times he has been so good that he's taken my attention away from the game. Well done Murray and please come back next season.

Mark Hubbard has done an excellent job and got a "birds-eye " view of the action at the Dome- or is it Paul Bell?

Just out of curiosity does anyone know if its a guy or a girl under the suit?. He has done a great job this year, i was of the belief when they brought him back that they should have made him look aggressive like the croc but they have made it work and the kids do seem to really like him.

I'm pretty sure its a bloke, i saw a guy walk out of the players race with a massive blue bag (could it have the suit in it? hmmmmmmm) the mystery deepens lol

I know some of the previous Murray's had a chick in the suit...

Oh and Skip if you had a missed call from Wednseday night (at the end of the game) it was from me asking if the guy with the bag was murray hahahaha

Hi Everyone, 36ers management alerted me to this thread. I am Murray The Magpie this season.

Firstly I'd like to say a massive thankyou for your positive feedback. I'm stoked you like what i'm doing out there.

Secondly, if you have any ideas you'd like to see done out there, post em' up and I'll see what i can do (within reason). I can not kill the opposition though.

Thirdly, I'm a guy...with skinny, skinny, girly legs.

Thanks for dedicating a thread to Murray, you the fans...really are the ones who ROCK. Thanks for coming to all the games and supporting the 36ers this season. Thankyou again.

Kinda feel sorry for those up the top ( nose bleed section) When I see the disappointment on their little faces. They miss out on soooo much up there.

Get Murray right up in the stands for a game, roam the concourse and give the kids some love up there ;)

Have only had the pleasure of 1 game at the BMC this season but did notice Murray a lot more active than in the past. Good stuff!

One of the many off court improvements the SOS made.
Doing great job and entertaining.
GOOD ON YA MURRAY
Not only nose bleed area that gets forgotten by Murray , Dancers ,players etc .
In our area north of opp. players race where heaps of kids is missed as well .
But they at least have something to watch now.
Reminds me of glory mascot days
The Bullett
Magic
Croc
etc etc Who actually entertained.

Thanks for the feedback everyone :)

I'll see what I can do to get around to the nose bleed section.

Dunking off a mini tramp is on the cards, but it will likely happen next season.

Unicycling...hmm well ok, let me see what i can arrange.

I'll ask Chloe for her number on your behalf, but if she kicks me in the groin, I'm blaming you.

Sorry Tru Blue Emcee, I didn't read your message until after the game.

The videos didn't go to plan, sorry everyone. I think they will be used properly next season. Lets hope the next season will go a little better for the 36ers too.

Thanks again everyone for your support and feedback. I really appreciate it. It was a blast being Murray.
