They have to be the unfunniest guys of all time.

I saw them do an interview on Sunrise a few weeks back where they had clearly paid for the air time.

Wouldn't be surprised if a few dollars changed hands again.

Just watching the Renegades v Strikers game on 7. So boring I keep falling asleep just about every over. 7 have ruined bbl coverage on free to air tv. Wouldn't be suprised if BBL ratings start to take a dive, the poor commentary teams (even with Ponting and other mainstays) as well as there terrible graphics have ruined what was a good tv attraction due to what 10 did. Channel 10 made the bbl what it is and now 7 have basically destroyed it.

why does Mel McLaughlin always look like she just got done shagging and didn't quite have enough time to fix herself up properly?

Don’t know what the biggest mystery of the summer is, why Marnus Labuschagne is batting at 3 or how James Brayshaw has a job

Where is Abbey Gelmi is a bigger mystery than both. She was on the early WBBL, she was in Adelaide, she's been at a few BBL games where she's gotten a total of about 2 minutes camera time... She might as well be Amelia Earhart.

Since I'm pretty far away from the work TV, I can't tell for sure, but it looked like C7 played a minute long highlights package of one catch (that happened about 30 min ago) from several different angles and speeds.

Why?

I'm wondering what it must be like for people at work, watching without sound, who are wondering what the fu** channel 7's obsession with fist bumps is. Seriously 4 different conversations about it today with commentators saying "I'm too cool for that", to them having just gone back to the archive's to show Viv Richards fist bumping.

The fu**?

she got engaged
Well that kind of breaks my heart a little :'(

1. the cage number 1 rated show
2. any given Sunday number 1 rated show
3. The footy show killed it when he hosted
4. Triple M football heads and shoulders above the rest
5. Commented for years on ING cup then internationals on 9 after averaging 42 in First Class cricket

I don’t know mate I think his resume speaks for itself

Weird thing to get upset over, and he is a cult figure among Indian fans at this point.
Not to mention every Aus fan I know loved the photo taken with Paine's wife. Not sure what the complaint is about JB's statement. People just like complaining about the commentary teams even when they're on the money, I guess.

Slats infecting Alison and Ed for an whole over about not having a pool and wanting to know if he could borrow some budgie smugglers from Cowan.

All off the back of a "classic" catch of a.kid diving into a pool.
