I'm curious to see all of the individual takes on commentators in these forums, so to make it a simplified process, I wanted to start a thread where people can share their opinions via making a list of their own with the link below:


And just to start us off, I'll also leave you with my completely subjective objective tier list :)

There are a couple absentees from the list. If Michael Christian or Tom Harley were on it than I'd happily rank them highly.

Can someone please tell Jordan Lewis to STFU.
Special comments not running commentary is your job Jordan.

We need a "poor" category for the likes of Eddie McGuire, Basil Zempilas etc. It is not right to have someone like BT who I like on Triple M but hate on Channel 7 in the same category.

Apart from Commetti, nearly all of them should be on the "E" list.

BT and Huddo at the top

Whately and his disciple Jason Bennett at the bottom

The others are all about equal in the middle apart from Kelli Underwood and her ear drum torturing voice

There are so few commentators who infuse the game with something more than what you’re already seeing. In the 90s when you had Sandy, Bruce, Drew Morphett, Dennis, and Peter Landy doing all the games, and each of them just had one offsider in the box - usually Bernie Quinlan, Ian Robertson, Peter McKenna etc - it was a great time to watch and listen to football.


He cops a lot of grief for some reason but I actually rate Nick Riewoldt’s commentary on the game and his insight in panel shows - even allowing for the incredible drag factor he suffers from being on the abortion that is Best On Ground. He doesn’t over rely on obscure stats and garbage analysis

I don't mind the level of analysis you get from Healey, King and Dunstall and would have them close to the top.

Brenton Speed , Bennett and Hudson are the best off the top of my head

BT , Carey are two off the top of my head i hate listening to

They have too many in the commentary box , as someone mentioned was better when one caller and someone on the side
