You already have
I don't think he was ever a Waratah. How dare you tarnish us with your Loser Willie.
^^^^^^^ Wiki confirms he wasn't but I just have this mental picture of him in a light blue jumper back in the early days of SR. Any large Tongan/ Samoan/ Kiwi dudes in the 'Tahs back in those days?
Sam Domoni or Semi Taupeaafe?
Growing up, I thought his name was 'Maxted' and that 'Mexted' was just a pisstake on his eccent.
I'm still wondering how Brendan Cannon managed to slip through the commentators net. He's knowledgable, articulate and doesn't follow the sychophantic ARU line like the rest of them.
That has got to be a wind-up.
I fixed your post.
Drew Mitchell is appalling. Who thought he’d be good on tv?
Mitchell can also be chucked on the shit heap that is Australian Rugby commentary.
yeah i don't mind him. at least he's into it with a bit of imagination and mild fervor. Plus he hasnt got on my tits in a massive way yet which is more than can be said for 90% of them. Willie Lose isnt bad.
But Maaardo. Oh God, no. So glad he's still the pole front funner. WFT is his deal?
Havent heard from Gregan yet this season. Maybe he O.D'd on the rest of Drew Mitchell's cough medicine.
Commentators "Everyone Drinks" lines:Karl Te Nana: "100%"Richard Turner: "No doubt about it"Justin Marshall: "Synergy"Ken Laban: "Second man play"Tony Johnstone: "GO FUCK YOURSELF" (oops, that was me to TJ during every single match he calls, never mind that one)
Who did WSR have commentating the force vs Fiji game? Same on fox and 7? Any improvement over the one eyed cliche spewers?
Has Kearns been doing the 'tahs home games? I'll be hitting the yellow button but in the unlikely event the Bloos get up I need to know if I should have some waders & a flotation device handy....
You need a settlement pond for the solid waste, don’t wade into that untreated stuff
Considering closing this thread after the fox broadcast of WSR last night. Those guys were terrible. I was embarrassed for Lynagh who had to work with them.
Dismal has just pointed out on the 'tahs v Bloos match thread that the Phil Kearns Tears (Of Joy) are also a possibility so I'm going with a full wetsuit & a really big flotation device just to be safe...
Are there actually any commentators that people genuinely enjoy at a national/international level, can't think of any myself.
Of course there is Up, really if the commentator agrees with the person watching, and never rubbishes his team he is great!! Think perhaps this tread is more about the people posting on it than the commentators!
Nah Marto still gets on my tits, even when I agree with him.
Separate names with a comma.
