    We know how bad they can be, but watching tonight they put me to sleep. Monotone, sparse, disinterested commentary.

    Darcy, Brayshaw, and Richo....

    It was a possible top 4 clash between the Cats and Power... and there was plenty of drama during the game. The Power were in the contest until the last 7 minutes.

    Try watching Fat F****** Eddie today.

    When he groans when the eagles get a goal late twice.

    The whole industry has just become a big boys' club with the same few guys rotating through the various radio/television outlets that cover the game.

    On Thursday night we had the WAFL on channel 7 and it was a pleasure listening to commentators simply commentating the game. Like old fashioned radio coverage. Too many commentators all thinking they need to talk endlessly about anything but the game in front of them.

    95% of the media commentators suck.
    The problem is they think they need to make it entertaining. They don't. The game is what we want to see. Just call it, we dont need your personal flavour on it.

    Be thankful BT wasn't there as well. Makes Friday night games close to unwatchable.

    The fact that there are more than 2 commentators in the first place...

    Think channel 7 should bring in Warwick Capper as the special comments commentator

    Bruce is the best sports caller in the world.

    Nooo ! Hearing from Daisy Pearce on the sidelines about wether it’s raining or not is an essential part of the commentary

    Can't stand the slavish reinforcing of every umpiring decision as 100% correct.

    They hired Carey as a commentator, a man no one likes that has no charisma, intelligence or integrity purely because he could play footy. Channel 7 just don't have a clue. How do you regularly have commentators people absolutely hate and keep them for years? To some extent I get Taylor but a guy like Darcy?

    If you listen to Terry Wallace on SEN, i think he has a segment on every program from breakfast to evenings.

    Darcy talks all week on MMM, then Talking Footy, then the Kick, then the TV broadcast.

    and so on...

    It seems that ownership of footy media has become concentrated in the hands of a few scrooges.

    Thank god for footy podcasts on the net. There should be live podcasts that commentate games.

    Watching games from the 80s the commentators used to smash the umpires week in week out. Especially the ex-players, Richards, Skilton would hammer the umps every week.

    The times before control by the Politburo.
