well summed up.I don't find him all that bright, maybe he has this intelligent image just because he's a skinny bald guy who pronounces words properly and sits next to Robbo. A lot of football and football media is myth, Whatley's intelligence is probably one of them.
he is very articulate and has a penchant for the rhetoric, which, when you actually break down what he says makes very little sense at all.
i think he regards himself as an intellectual and judging by his commentary on afl, cricket and even getting sent over to commentate the superbowl by hutchy, displays his inflated sense of importance.
as much as bruce has become a caricature of himself these days, his theatrics at least sound a tad genuine unlike whateley's attempts at injecting excitement into a game.
