To be fair, anyone would be disgusted to be in a box with mahery. I like how it's a running joke on the front bar that no one wants mahery there, but deep down I think it's true.I like him and I don't buy the sycophant angle. You can tell that his colleagues like him and that he gels well with them.
Andy Maher was mentioned alongside Howard earlier in the thread but if you watch the disgust wash across Mark Waugh's face during the Big Bash when Maher is in the box with him and then contrast it to the laid back joy that's visible when he's with Howie, it paints a telling picture.
Couldn't they use autotune or something on mark ricciuto so that it doesn't sound like an adult baby who's sucked a can of helium then smoked 50 cigars?Got to hand it Howey, he's actually very good at calling the game with a good tone (Excitement levels etc).
Interesting heard on Triple M that the producers at fox artificially lower his voice as well (equaliser).
He does a good job considering he has to put up with Warne & Waugh. My ultimate combo would be Howie, Isa & Hussey (I actually think he’s very under rated and improving all the time).Have listened to him quite a bit over the summer. Has many good points, but being such as suck is making him a poor commentator.
