Couldn't care less if he's commentating the game, he's a decent enough caller when his own club or one of the big 4 aren't involved. I'd rather him than pretty much any of the Channel 7 commentators (apart from Bruce).

I don't hate the idea of him being paid to promote WA either, when Eddie speaks most people in Victoria listen, it would be good to have a big Vic personality giving us a wrap I think.

Couldn’t care less. With no Victorian sides to barrack for he’ll probably stick to calling the game and drumming it up as an instant classic.

As long as Paps is on the call, I’m happy.
Paps usually always does the Perth game if Fox are producing it, I'd be surprised if he wasn't on it.

Met him an Eagles HQ when he was waiting to doorstop Simmo once, great down to Earth bloke.

Could be far worse. Basil, Dwayne, BT. He's ok if he's no calling Cwood. And yeah it could be ******* Basil. The entirety of WA dodged a huge bullet there.

No problem with it, don't understand the uproar. Eddie is one of the better commentators in the game when he commentates from a neutral standpoint. I'm most curious to see how the combination with Paps goes.

Couldn't care less as he's just another average commentator with all the rest!
Can't believe people somehow think this muppet should represent our state?
Liked the Premier's comments on him this morning..a bit like "who's Eddy McGuire?, outside of his own bubble?"
