Bruce’s decline in commentating the footy is exacerbated by his brilliance on the Racing coverage. There he is still at his absolute best hosting the coverage where he can expand on all his knowledge and his passion just comes out naturally.

The play by play just isn’t working anymore.

Listen to this full piece of commentary from Bruce in 2001 (where people still say he was in his prime), this was the last year 7 had the rights before losing them to channel 9 and channel 10 in 2002-2006.

Honestly to the untrained ear, the way he calls the action then isn't widely different to how he would call it now IMO.
Reckon the lead-up to the mark was pretty good. Crapped on about it too much but looks like the game was over anyway with that margin.
