Very strange timing, this thread.

I logged in just now just to comment on Speed's work, and somebody has made a thread about it just before I got here.

Anyway I enjoy his commentary in the A-League and the AFL. Amazing that he can do both so well.

Doesn't just know the players better than most others, but he understands the game.

To top it off, he puts the game and the viewers before himself. Very unusual.

And he commentates the NRL too! Triple threat. Consumate professional.

He calls it straight and accurately without the ego but if I had a criticism it's that sometimes his voice is very low, almost giving the impression of boardem.

One of the best going around.
Huddo, Jason Bennett and Speedy are the best callers of the game

Clicked on here and thought surely people can't be bagging him. Nice to see professionalism appreciating. Know some ABC guys do lots of sports but none as well as he does imo.

Time for channel 7 to throw the kitchen sink at him. He needs to be calling at least 2 prime time games a week.

Would be pretty hard for 7 to steal him from Foxtel given he is a staple A League commentator as well for Fox Sports.

But yes, he is terrific

Why is it that neither Brenton Speed or Adam Papalia ever appear on camera during AFL broadcasts? Are they really that ugly?

Probably not the kind of face you would rush onto a network

Kerry O'Keeffe is no oil painting either, but he has a prominent on-screen role.
I wont argue with that. Or the fact Carro and Hutchy get a TV gig too.

Id be much more interested in a show with Speed hosting
