    Solid diagnosis, Doc.

    Very handy to distract from the damage.

    The man thinks and speaks like a Queenslander in full retard mode. I wish Fox had kept on with Sharpe, despite his occasional F-bombs. He really spoke intelligently about the game (and yes, I know where he came from, its how you commentate that matters).

    what is interesting is just how long it takes for such revered legends on the field to completely exhaust their quota of test match rugby goodwill by their dopey deeds in the comm box

    "OK, I'm Tim Horan so I can say anything I want." And he seems to have run with that premise. His legend status seems to have given his mouth a free pass from where his brain should be. And he's still thought of as Tim Horan rugby legend so I'd venture he still has a long way to before he's run the status dry

    Justin Marshall comes to mind, a DICK who has long since exhausted his goodwill quota and is now just a shrieking fuckwit. As opposed to a shrieking fuckwit who won a lot of test matches in black.

    Kearns didnt have enough legend points in the bank iHOMO and promptly shot himself in the ballsack with his mouth after what, 2, maybe 3 minutes in the commentary box.

    Say what you like about Kearns, and as a commentator I would probably agree with anything you say, but he did have some points from his playing career - 2 RWC winning squads / teams; Bledisloes. Did allright.

    yeah sold him a bit short there, kind of a golden generation. THAT'S the effect I'm talking about though, deeds of the gab undermining deeds on the field, call it for what it is, The Kearns Tears Gab Test Match Paradigm Reverse Brownie Points Effect

    Totally agree with his playing accomplishments, as with Horans, but as commentators they'd be flat out making Subbies

    I hear thata Sky have prepared a special commentary box for TJ on the weekend. Seven monitors showing highlights of all Crusaders Super titles on continuous loop, photos of famous Crusaders (Ritchie, Dan et al), cold shower and ice bath. Anthony Mundine has donated a pair for boxing gloves for TJ to wear.

    some of those test patterns need a LOT more red and black pencilled in

    No wide zoom though please, we should spared the horror of exactly where TJ's other hand is...
