    I have never heard a worse commentary performance in my life. It was just bizarrely bad. Like as if they had never commentated a game in their lives. Like everything they did was bad

    No excitement, constantly behind the play, absolutely zero knowledge provided. Is this normal for them?

    Just as a sidenote, this is the last 5 minutes. Go to 3 minute mark when Sheed gets the goal. Ive seen more excitement at a funeral then that. I understand the concept of bias but surely you can appreciate a good kick a bit better then that?

    Personally that just adds to the satisfaction, hearing the pain in their voices.

    As an Eagle supporter it should be gold.

    Wow. Yeah that's pretty bad. You can feel the lack of energy in the booth

    That mix of 4 have probably never commentated a game together before, which may have added to it, and none supporting either team. For the last decade and more I've listened to Triple M calls more than the tv (although a little less in the last 2 years now that it's not what it once was, and is in the Howie era..), but they're well recognised for their excitement and are normally over the top in those regards. Their style of commentary (well, JB and BT together mainly) makes even crap games worth listening to, so I don't think that 5mins sums them up at all. I do think the Sheed reaction is rather subdued by JB's standards though.

    Maybe he was tired, as he's normally left the box at that point during the handful of games he called for Triple M this year... ;p

    I'm not a fan of MMM nor am i a fan of Brayshaw and Darcy but that was rubbish to put it mildly.

    Pretty average commentating given it's the most important game of the year to be honest.

    Triple M Grand Final commentary jumped the shark at this point.
