I reckon Bruce is great!

His in depth analysis of who is the best KPF in the comp: "Buddy is Buuuddy and Cloke is, well Travis", you don't get that kind of insight from your run of the mill commentator.
Well done boys!

He would not shut up the entire match.
Why have other commentators?

no
The public is pondering if forward pockets have a inappropriate and misused name. People often refer to forward pockets as the front pockets on pants, shorts dresses or mankinis.

I raise you Dwayne Russell.


You didn't live in Tasmania in the 80s and so were spared Neville Oliver or, as he was known down there. "Fart in a Bath".

In case you're wondering, just say his name quickly putting the same emphasis on each syllable - you'll get it.

And has anyone mentioned George Grljuczyk, who used to haunt Perth?

Couldn't agree more. I'd like to sit in on the match review that Lewis Martin at Channel 7 told Rohan Connolly they have have each week. In fact I'd like to be the projectionist, and I'd like to be the bloke who clamps their eyes (see Alex on A Clockwork Orange) so they cannot miss some of the egregious "decisions" imposed on the game tonight.

What about the 25% of the screen dedicated to Gillbiee in the stands while play was on. FFS.

I got dizzy at times with the ground level shots. I didn't know where we were.

Ch7 is comprehensively shit.

I was at the ground fortunately, but it sounds like Bruce was anti-Collingwood again.

Don't tell me, he was having an 'orgasm' when the Bulldogs were winning and when Collingwood were controlling the last quarter his tone and excitement changed to drabness and disappointment.

Bruce (after wellers looked to be held) "wellingham looking for a free kick"

Now if Wellers wasn't a Pie it would have been "free kick on Wellingham missed"

I was told about that. Got a text from a mate while at the ground. It read: "Find out where ****wit Gilbeys sitting. Nobble the pr1ck. That ****head Bruce interviewing him constantly during play. Seven coverage worst ever!"

Sounds like my mate was 100% correct.

It's hard to believe this is the network that used to produce brilliant footy coverage. Bring back Sandy Roberts.

Given that his behaviour is habitual, Bruce is always orgasming during commentary. I just pray Seven doesn't decide to go with a commentary box cam. :oops: :P :wink:

Got to roll your eyes at Dwayne Russell, who came up with this little pearler:

"36,000 fans here at Etihad today, who have come along in order to get out of the rain."

Yeah, because it's not like their team was playing, or anything. They just usually watch the footy out in the street! :roll:

On the flip side, who are our BEST commentators? As much as I love the VFL, Peter Donegan is wasted at that level. Well read and across the detail of the game, never forgets a player's name, and has a sense of humour that makes ABC football coverage the best, an ironic twinkle in the eye, ratrher than the fart and d!ck jokes that other commentators make. And he is one of us! :D

Gerard Whately is in the same category as Donners, just as long as he's not talking about his beloved Cats or Black Caviar.

Sandy Roberts. Love him. Have done since the 1990 grand final. Guess it must be a 90's thing. I'm a child of the 90's.

Drew Morphett. He's not that bad, but works better as a secondary commentator, not as #1 commentator/compere. And works better on radio. Has no TV presence whatsoever.

Matt Granland. Don't listen to SEN that much, but what I have heard, he doesn't sound all that bad.

Very little made of the free kick discrepancy, even when it was 0-9 in the first. I thought that was strange. Wonder if it would have been the same if the calls were going against the Dogs.
Well done boys!
