Trade you Zemilas for TVs biggest goose, Barry Hall. He is the worst so called sports presenter since 1956.
And whats with the Harry O diamond earring? What a tool.

Yep. Way too many superannuated ex footballers with nothing particularly insightful to offer.
Which makes it all the more important that the 'professional' callers and commentators know their stuff.

He needs to stop trying get people suspended. He's worse than Michael Christian and Andy Maher in that regard now. As if Buddy making contact with the goal umpire needs to be looked out by the Match Review Panel. What a tool.

This afternoon during Geelong vs. Sydney, he was talking about Nathan Vardy apparently bowling a perfect game at some Geelong bowling event and then said proudly (paraphrasing) "And did you know, Hame (sic), that in reaching the perfect game, Vardy bowled 12 straight strikes!?" :eek:

There was a brief pause before Harley gently suggested that the only way to bowl a perfect game was by bowling 12 straight strikes. Basil then muttered something about "strikes and spares" before Hamish interjected and saved Basil from further embarrassment. Was cringeworthy TV.

Is he blind? Serious question. He calls players by another name, he never knows whether it's a goal or behind.

If you didn't hear it 800 times during the game, Chris Newman is Richmond's former skipper.

Last night when Magic Daw and Nic Nat went up in ruck together for the first time he refered to it as "A significant moment in football". Why ?
I thought it was in reference to a Sudanese born player up against a player with Fijian parents going head to head. Probably not that significant, but a bit all the same.
