Simon was joined by Nick, Joseph and Jack for this Tuesday's URN Sport. They could only begin with one story: Lewis Hamilton's successful final race to win this season's F1 Championship. The guys also discussed which teams might challenge Mercedes next season.
The major news of the day was that Phil Hughes was in a critical condition after a bouncer had hit him on the head at Sydney Cricket Ground. The panel touched on this as well as Michael Vaughan's proposal for an FA Cup-style Twenty20 competition that could pitch amateur clubs against first-class and minor county sides.
Next on the agenda was boxing, and Tony Bellew's win by split decision against Nathan Cleverly at the weekend.
Finally, they debated Liverpool's problems following their 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace. The lads discussed the possibility of dropping Steven Gerrard or altering his position, as well as the future of Brendan Rodgers.

Quick overview of the best of this week show
Firstly, our panel discussed whether the Green Party should be included in party leaders' TV debates in the run up to the General Election.
Secondly, following a debate organise by Voice Your Rights Projects, we discussed secularism. President of Agnostic, Secularist and Humanist society came along as a guest speaker.
Lastly, after some reports suggested that a current tuition fees system is unsustainable and tuition fees should be lowered we evaluated the current and discussed possible changes to the system.
This week a video of the University of Nottingham men's hockey club stripping off to help campaign against homophobia in sport went viral.
Sam Boyle reports:
On Thursday's URN Sport, Sam Barker was joined by Calum, Elliott and James to discuss the story and the wider issue of homophobia in sport and how it can be addressed.
Elliott said that tackling homophobia in sport has to come from the top. The panel also discussed the Play with Pride match between the Universities of Loughborough and Nottingham.
Sam asked the panel whether they thought the Voice Your Rights group's attempts to have a zero tolerance to homophobia clause written into the manifesto of university sports clubs would be effective.
