Says a lot for kissing the right arses, hanging around footballers at nightclubs with drink cards. Ultimate sycophant. Unfortunately 90% of people kiss his arse now due to the influence he has. Nothing happens in Melbourne without him either ticking off on it or knowing about it.
I’m pretty neutral on him - probably because he doesn’t do many Freo games. That said, his commentary for the last 30 seconds of the after the siren win at the G against the Tigers a couple of years ago was pretty much perfect. Only ruined by Lynch’s groan when Mundy slotted it straight down the middle.
Underrated commentator. Take him over Derwayne easily.
I loved it a few years ago when he called a Crows v Hawks game back at Football Park, and absolutely ripped into an awful decision where Scott Thompson got penalized for the softest push in history, meanwhile you have Wayne Carey who tries to shove the shitty new rules down your throat as if Steve Hocking had a gun to his head while commentating...
I'd take Eddie commentating over BT or Dwayne Russell any day. Yeh sometimes his bias comes through even though he seems to either play it up deliberately or grit his teeth and pretend it doesnt exist when it does.
