    C'mon he's better than 90% of the shit they get on there.

    Also, I'm not fan of the NBL but they don't even mention it when it's the finals. But wait! WBBL gets 10 ******* minutes.

    And for no good reason either. Watch for his weird little giggles whenever he makes a funny.

    His cricket views are remarkably misinformed.

    Will be good to have Whately back.

    Mel McLaughlin never adds much.

    Is there any possibility they could talk about women's sport without name-dropping Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry?

    Darren Cahill's use of stats that matter is rare in tennis. Great to see a subject expert join the program who also happens to be easy to listen to. His strong all-sport background means he also had more to say about them than the others did.

    I'll miss Kelli Underwood's hosting. Knowledgable, but knows not to take over the entire show and turn it into a personal vehicle (hi, Gerard).

    Mel is a bit boring but then again she's not like the regular hysterical shit stirrers they get on there.

    I found Cahill really interesting yesterday. Made Tennis seem interesting to someone who doesn't get in to Tennis.

    She sounds bored, she looks bored. I also get the distinct impression she'd much rather be talking about T20 and the English Premier League than anything to do with her current employment. But hey - money talks, so I don't blame her.

    They do select the experts well. Lisa Alexander, Ange Postecoglou, Cahill - they're all good analysts and surprisingly diverse in their knowledge of other sports.

    The worst thing about him is that he's smug and superior when dealing with 'the public' on Twitter but almost always is reverential around other media types on Offsiders even when they say stupid things.

    With Kelli in the chair, there's significantly less gushing, breathlessness and big words for the sake of appearing intelligent.

    It's the shutting down of alternative views that I struggle with, along with the fact he can't separate his hosting role from his former role as a panelist.

    Very irritating and carries a sense of superiority.

    Bit rich she stuck the boot in to football considering she's a journo covering rugby union which is a clear fourth in the football code war at the moment.

    Our friends over at League Unhinged aren't big fans of the show, they have a 300 page thread dedicated to it, apparently they don't talk about RL enough lol.

    It's always worth tuning in if Gideon is on there.

    Still trying to get over Gerard saying Michelle Payne's Melbourne Cup win was the tipping point that changed women's sport.

    He lives in a bubble.

    The push to professionalise women's sport is just but I groaned upon realising that's what the entire ******* episode was about. No A-League or international cricket in the last week?

    It was probably the WBBL. When it's unexpected popularity got up and going. I think it brought forward the AFL's plans to do so.

    His massive blind spot where the nags are concerned will never stop being humorous.
