The point of difference is she is a token female.
The award and constant how good is she...
Well it's bullshit

She's hopeless.
Her voice isn't strong. She almost makes herself believe she can do her job the longer she talks
The constant half giggling isn't professional
I get women are being pushed.
However.
If women want a job and to be rated equal...
Be bloody equal.
She is shocking
Giggle
Absolutely pathetic stuff from a keyboard warrior.

Somebody like Nat Edwards would be much better.

Don't just throw the likes of Holmes and Pearce in at the deep end with these huge gigs just because they're good players.

A few weeks ago she said a player can't even run, whilst the camera is directly on said player. What a comment, revolutionary.

Wow, what a howler. Probably the biggest stuff up by a commentator in the history of Channel 7's coverage, and one that totally negates anything else she's added to the broadcast over the last few years. Worse than any stuff up BT, JB, Jobe, Hame, Basil, Duck or Lingy have ever done. How they keep her around after that is beyond me. Another victory for the woke mob!!!

The paradox is she is a more confident TV presenter than radio one. When on with Whateley, she sounds like a nervous 17y.o talking to her new boyfriend (maybe it is the Whateley effect; I have a theory about dweebs, partly confirmed by Bill Gates' shenanigans)

Keeps getting better on special comments…although fellow comments guys are so s**t it makes her sound better. I don’t think she’s as good interviewing people but again no worse than the others. Hamish yesterday put Papley on the spot by asking him who he thought was best on ground …and it went on for a couple of minutes as well

Agree. Brown is particularly awful, all he says is players have to work harder etc. Zero actual insight.
Yeah, he's got nada to contribute. He's there because he talks like a tough boofhead, trading off barging through some packs 20 years ago. His co-commentators fawn over him every chance they get - as though being tough requires incredible insight which has to be repeated endlessly. He's the modern day equivalent of Wallsy's "throw him in the ruck".

I'd give him a run in the ruck Quarters

Browny makes everything so dramatic. On the Couch there was a discussion about West Coast woes and goes on some rant about how players don't want to "go into battle" with Jack Darling because he didn't vaccinated early enough.

It’s true. Not a male/ female thing, she is as genuinely s**t as the rest of them.
She fair dinkum giggles after everything she says.
Bloody hopeless

It's sad that anyone who has a negative view on a female has to defend themselves for not being a woman hater. It's got nothing to do with male or female

She's just no good on the radio.

The giggling shits me. A real nervous giggle. She's not confident when she speaks.

Part of the job description would be to sounds professional. She doesn't tick the box

Didn't Daisy move to Bright not too long ago (or somewhere around there)? How's she gunna work for Channel 7 and coach at Geelong when she lives 3 or 4 hours away? Has she come back to Melbourne?

I don't pay much attention to commentators, they're just a background noise along with the crowd so far as I care. However, I did watch the footy the other night. I've heard the criticism of Daisy Pearce, so I paid attention to what she was saying. I have to say, I had no problem with it. Sound knowledge and understanding of the game, spoke at the right time, can't see what the fuss is about, I've heard a lot worse over the years.
