You get a laugh out of the 25th time in a game? You're easily amused.I know he's not everyone's cup of tea but I like BT.
I always get a laugh out of nicknames like Jack "the package" stringer and ben "big boner" brown
It's weird. I hate BT commentating on TV, but last Sunday I had to drive for three hours and had MMM on in the car and for radio, BT wasn't bad. Complete cluster*, but it was tolerable.The worst one is 'poppy' when referring to Puopolo. I think it's only Bruce that says it but ugh makes me cringe every time.

For TV, the radio style bullshit doesn't work. It actually makes me turn the sound off.
The above monologue neatly encapsulates why Channel 7 are a disgrace to the game and should be charged with bringing the game into disrepute. And the BT/Darcy duo, with either meaningless or obvious insights from Ling, is the worst of a wretched bunch. Channel 7 are the masters at ruining reputations - they are fast turning Richo from a class act into another would-be comedian for whom banter is of far more importance than calling/observing the play with the barest modicum of accuracy.Highlight from the Cats game on Sat:
>Shot of Rioli stretching his groin
>BT - "Wowee is Rioli injured? Thids would be a massive story if he is. MASSIVE"
>BT repeats himself as Rioli is massaged on the bench
>Darcy shouts something because SJ has the ball
>BT repeats himself again
>Darcy remind everyone how Rioli doesn't need many possessions to be effective
>Ling speaks for 30 seconds on how Hawthorn really should take the critically injured Rioli off for the rest of the game
>BT - "So what do you think Lingy? Should Hawthorn put him on ice?"
>Ling repeats himself, with a comically over-somber tone.
>Cyril runs back on. Kicks two more goals.
