He needs to take some muscle relaxants or something, used to lol at how he would stand the exact same way every week on talking footy, gripping his wrist so tight

Gripping his wrist eh? Hmm.

Gerard Whateley revealed today that Tom Brownie sent him a terse text after Gerard "liked" Jack Riewoldt's post on Twitter.

Tom is a strange one!
Bit of an insight here. Classic narcissist.

That was my first thought too.

Gerard mentioning it on-air with Huddo, Gary Lyon etc and having a laugh at it (him) probably made it even better/worse!
I'm sure he's as much of a laugh within the media as he is outside the media.

Total knob.

I think Gerard is just a bookish nerd who enjoys using big words where simple ones would do and over dramatising the most trivial situations.
And whilst has knowledge doesn’t have the classic voice for a broadcaster.
So he’s done really well for himself considering that limitation.
Like with race calling, it’s horrible on the ears. But he is accurate.

Turned on talking footy last night. Never watched the show before and the vibe I got is that he try’s to butt in and make a point and sound important, when you are getting told to be quiet by Luke ‘dumb as a doorknob’ Darcy, you have issues

In any other industry it would be clear cut that he is the worst. Yet when you compare him to some others within this industry not so clear cut. There are many contenders for the title...a true reflection on the number of poor humans that work as journos.
