I'd buy any TV remote that renamed the 'mute' button the 'Dwayne Russell' button. Maybe have a picture of him on it instead of a megaphone with an X.
Fox Footy basically had that in the 2000s with their viewer's choice option where you could watch a match without commentary if you wanted as well as choose your preferred camera angles.

Was a terrific option; baffled with the advancements in technology why they don't have any of that now.

Footy is pretty expensive to produce so we lost a lot of these little extras. On the plus side for Fox Footy their coverage is still 10x better than Channel 7 in terms of cameras, replays etc.

I recall during the final evening of the trade period before he was booted off early for Barrett and Clearly because trades starting dropping, Derwayne was continually saying "thanks for tuning in from wherever you are on the planet". Just rubbish

I heard there was a ceasefire in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict as both sides came to a mutual agreement that Dodo is a flog. Derwayne contributing towards peace in the Middle East

I'd honestly pay extra to Foxtel if they removed him from all broadcasts. He makes the NBL completely unwatchable and we all know his AFL cliches

"SHAKE AND BAKE...THAT'S AS GOOD AS IT GETS...OH BABY". It was a layup in the first quarter Dwayne, calm down. Not everything needs to be screamed into the mic

Anthony Hudson was calling the NBL on Saturday, and was excellent. Interestingly all games in Australia are commentated from Melbourne so Derwayne does not have to travel to infect our TVs.

Yeah don't really like that commentating from a studio idea. Quite a few times they've been calling replays as though they're live or just not seen what's happened at all...

Huddo is good, no gimmick, just calls the game. Also like Brenton Speed for this reason. Derwayne is a farking flog!
