Does “gun” equate to “elite”?
Play in a simulated football league - find great movies and TV shows - play Werewolf - play video games (try our Minecraft server) - argue about politics - listen to music - keep up with science news - play board games - just gasbag - discuss true crime - and so much more.
Will I be able to see these tears on my screen?The best experience I have ever had at the footy. Left Canberra at 8am, straight down the highway, SEN the whole way. Walking to the G, lit up in red and blue in September. And then the roars from the Jones goal and the Hannan goal...might have had a bit of a teary.
I’m wondering how many dicey situations like that I’m going to end up in following this team.Think kick off was like 4.40am so finished ~7.30
Got to the job site around 9 which was 2 hours later then everyone else wanted but stuff em
I swear channel 7 makes them do weird shit so people talk about it.Just watching that Melksham goal again and, I know the commentators get a lot of flak on these boards. And probably justifiably from what I can tell, based on a lack of preparation (misidentifying Preuss in JLT the other night being a prime example). But for my money, when the action is fast paced in a footy match, the commentators do a great job in my opinion.
This call is exciting and perfectly amplifies the impact of the moment (he does mistakenly say that it’s Melbourne applying the recent pressure, but that can be forgiven). He takes a well timed break to let the crowd response have its moment as well:
Channel 7 want the commentary box to be like a sitcom. They want big characters with catch phrases and zany on air relationships. Maybe it's to keep people from switching off during a boring game, or maybe they don't have enough faith in the game itself and think they can get people to tune in for the commentary.I swear channel 7 makes them do weird shit so people talk about it.
On the radio BT is excellent an during the finals aswell because they have to be more serious
There should be an option to turn off the umpires mics aswell. ******* annoying campaigners I don't wanna hear a word the maggots say nor the whistle every 7 secondsWhy couldn't fox footy give people an option? Press red for crowd noise only. The amount of airtime Dermy has had through JLT is terrifying.
I can definitely do without the whistle. But as a new fan of the sport I enjoy (and learn) from hearing the umpires rulings/explanations.There should be an option to turn off the umpires mics aswell. ******* annoying campaigners I don't wanna hear a word the maggots say nor the whistle every 7 seconds
Comes in handy as to why they are paying the free sometimes. I find sometimes when I'm at the game I am perplexed as to why they have paid a free kick.There should be an option to turn off the umpires mics aswell. ******* annoying campaigners I don't wanna hear a word the maggots say nor the whistle every 7 seconds
That's almost all of the mainstream commentators nowBrian Taylor - commentates on Channel 7 and also on the radio for different games. Former player. Rather fond of his own opinions. Tries too hard to be the centre of the experience.
I wish I had that ambivalence. Bad commentary can ruin a moment or an entire game.As much as i miss the old channel 10 days, everyone is to focused on the commentators these days. I'm like Topkent with umpires, i couldn't give a stuff tbh, whether it's Huddo commentating or Basil Zampliss
Dennis Commetti was bloody excellent.That's almost all of the mainstream commentators now
It's so obvious they pre write jokes to slide into the commentary.
They all want to be the next Rex Hunt or Drew Morphett or even Commetti by having iconic moments of commentary.
I’m going to expand. Gun can mean two things. First is elite and the second isn’t elite - but it’s a particular type of potential (which may or may not mature).
