Maybe in part because channel 7 commentators are so awful. I think he's their best one. I never really appreciated him in the past but he's been a breath of fresh air on their Saturday night games.

He is fantastic I have been on this bandwagon since 2003.

He is polarizing because of his confidence not because of his commentary/hosting ability.

I enjoy him on Triple M and on 7. Different mediums different style of calling.

The biggest thing for me is that Saturday night football has gone from unwatchable to must watch

Wait until he starts calling everyone “an absoloute Star” or the ball gets smothered or kicked out of bounds on the full and comes out with “OH NO!!”

Brayshaw is the shining light of sevens commentary team.


Absolute indictment on seven.

I don't think he is being his true self. When he is on MMM and was on TFS he was himself. It seems like he is a little restricted and surrounded by flogs.

Great footy commentator, average cricket commentator: "Finchy's an unbelievable talent who has an enormous ability to hit the cricket ball an extraordinarily long way".

"With his massive levers"

Commentating well currently. We will see how long it lasts before he goes back to the Channel 9 cricket version

There is no doubt in my mind that the Triple M crew called the game off the tv.
