He can say whatever he wants....but the nasal voice is the thing that gets me. Like nails on a blackboard

So I've heard this rumour that Crocmedia own the "rights" of many media personalities - they get paid by Crocmedia who in turn place them. These guys get paid a retainer and Crocmedia on sell them. Make sense? This is why Hutchy bought SEN. Moves on Finey, Mark Allen etc and then brings in Crocmedia talent which he's already paid that then pays back on that retainer.
I wonder if Andy's on Crocmedia books? Explains a lot

Makes sense...but Barrett obviously has a seperate contract with MMM otherwise we would be hearing him all over SEN.

Says something that he is at his *best* as the straight man in Front Bar.

He is unlistenable on his radio show. Interview skills are awful. He presumes the answer to a question he hasn’t even asked yet, them takes 2 mins+ to spit it out anyway.

The constant self deprication shiver down your throat all the time is behind boring too.

Has to be his last year of seeing out a contract.

May well be the case at SEN, as for 7, I'm puzzled as to why they signed him in the first place.

With the expensive cost of running a TV station, they are over-staffed in their Football Department and it won't last.

The Front Bar was originally an AFL produced program on their website. I doubt he's on an exclusive contract that's high paying and he's shown that he has chemistry with the other two throughout the show's entire existence.

I'm not a fan of Maher but he works well on TFB and why take the unnecessary risk of replacing him with someone who wouldn't be cheaper?

His voice is pure disease.
Unbelievable he is on radio.
Sounds like he grew up nice and bogan.
He didn't though as far as I can tell, went to Marcellin College which is in Bulleen, hardly Bogansville. Agree his voice is awful though, not good for radio. Couple this with his never ending questions...

Far'kin weird body on the bloke. His shoulders are barely wider than his rib cage. Sorry if anyone's eating
:D

At the risk of perpetuating discussion of something I'm sure we would rather not discuss or even think about, what are the circumstances which have him appearing shirtless on TV? :huh:

It was a not-too-funny joke about the Brisbane players getting their gear off at half-time a few weeks ago when it was hot. Ten minutes into this:
