    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.

    Fair call and I agree.
    BUT, surround with some Bogans, ala Billy, ANYONE on MMM etc., and he goes to shit.

    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

    I’ve always liked his commentary. He is one of the few who can add colour without his a actual call suffering as a result.
    Commentators like BT can’t do it, but JB can.

    I've always liked him. He is pretty blokey and lude on MMM but he keeps that in check on TV.

    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.

    Thats why you have to keep him away from the bogan element, they just encourage that shit.

    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".

    Can't stand him. Best way to describe it is the singer from Rush commentating.

    Better than BT, but so is 97% of the population.

    "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.

    Just keep him away from the TV cricket coverage. He’s good on MMM.
