Play in a simulated football league - find great movies and TV shows - play Werewolf - play video games (try our Minecraft server) - argue about politics - listen to music - keep up with science news - play board games - just gasbag - discuss true crime - and so much more.
I tried pausing the game at the game.AFL app has multiple streams of every game which is great! But quite delayed unfortunately.
Works well if not watching the game but doesn’t sync up at all if you are at the game or on TV, unless you can pause it.
Don't use the word at all. Star, superstar, legend, etc.I saw something in the news today about the Rance incident..."channel 7 STARS disagree on dive" - I'm paraphrasing but you get the point.
Stars?!?!! In their playing careers, Carey and Richardson might have been stars but shouldn't their former status be left at the commentary box door. Ch 7 are plain awful these days.
It’s about the ‘style’ of commentary. Different sports have differing levels of detail.It won't happen, but my wish would be for commentary-free vision and sound. There's a term for what you would be listening to as a result, can't think what that is - ambient?
I can't stand the way commentators crap on. I think my biggest gripe, among many, is how they call it thinking we can't see what is happening like in front of our very eyes.
"So and so kicks it out to the wing". Oh rly?
I didn't mind Blight as a commentator, he was a bit left field with his thoughts on the game, some of it was just plain kooky but he was at least interesting.Malcolm blight was the only thing worse than bazil. I remember one game when (might have been huddo) calling someone a running machine or goal kicking machine or whatever it was and blight goes "il stop you there huddo) then proceeds to go on this epoc rant how its impossible for human beings to be a machine as machines are mechanical intruments yada yada...lost the plot.
Also it irritates the shit out of me when dermie has too much of an ego to actuall call a shot before it is kicked. Someone will be lining up for goal, theyl kick and just about as the ball is going to cross the line he will sit back in his chair and say " now he will want to curl this slightly left to right....yea that will work" after hes just watched what the ball actually does
Absolutely. For special comments roles then former players are perfect because they can provide insight on something that is happening by giving a players perspective.To me the best caller in the business is Hudson, with Whatley being second best. I don't think it is a coincidence that the best commentators are not former players.
See it's funny you say that, because most Geelong fans would say he's painfully neutral and won't make a call. Eh, he must be on a long contract like BasilLing was OK when he started but now he's just another Ch7 sycophant like Darcy and his Geelong bias can be nauseating when he commentates their games.
