How many commentators use ‘shake and bake’ now thanks to Dwayne!

Disappointed Ben left off “ made it his problem”

I would pay twice as much to watch it with the commentary muted.
Other than a very brief time, history would suggest that broadcasters dont want us to have nice things.

Our only hope is for when one of the streaming giants inevitably buys the exclusive rights to the game.

I think there are a heap of better callers than Dwayne but he is helped by the fact he played the game. There are not many that have played at the highest level and are good enough to call play by play.

Guys like Papalia are better callers but there are probably a hundred guys like that around the country. Same with special comments positions, there is just a bigger pool to pick from so more competitive. Only the best survive.

I don't think it's right or that it matters but I am sure that is how he has survived so long.

Also his call of Riolis poster in the last shows how s**t he is. Had as bad a last quarter as Tom Barrass
The ball actually smashed into the goal post (possibly even rebounding back into play), I'm not sure what game Dwayne was watching... But then again I'm never sure, as he just makes up what's going out on the field to suit whatever catch phrase he has at the ready.

Disgraceful commentator.
