[quote="Waltzing St Kilda"]We should start a thread on dumb footballers who for some reason are allowed to become dumb football commentators.

The one commentator who has me diving for the mute button when the Saints are playing is the one & only Brian Taylor 'B.T'. Look he is probably a good guy but he shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the mic. Brian's commentary style is best left for the pub. It comes across as just another example of how cheap & nasty Ch. 7 always is. I didn't mention dumbing down but there must be a stack of alternative commentators with more to offer than Brian.
anyway there you have it. :(

I agree with you.

Except, I think the guy is a real creep and not a good guy at all.

I heard a replay of that segment. A Sainta actually rang in, and put forward some of the arguments expressed above.

The Moon-man then changed his rating of Seb's game, and declared it the best midfielder's game of the round.

So we can cut him some slack, at least this time. :)
It's Dave, man. Will you open up? I got the stuff with me! -------Who?
Dave, man. Open up ------------------------------------------ -----Dave???
Yeah, Dave. ---------------------------------------------------------Dave's not here.

It is grounded but it is aspirational, it is eclectic, everyone belongs, and we say how do we capture that as an identity? It would be a good move on so many levels for the club."

Get off it Dave. What choice did he have when he was confronted with the truth?

Just shows that he was unprepared and misinformed.

Double meat head.

Somebody's going to sleep in today. Hopefully the neighbours are renovating.

There were a few of them at Geelong then. Then there's that parasite Cameron Ling at Channel 7. How did these dumbasses get jobs in the media after their careers. We are living in the era of AFL idiocracy!

Cam lost me in his early days of reporting on the radio, not long after his retirement. He was talking about how much greater Nick R may have been if he'd been fed by Geelong's, rather than our midfield. That really put me off. There is no doubt that Banger, Aussie, Lenny, Dal, BJ, Joey etc. had (or have!) exquisite skills, by foot and hand. Further, Nick has never been anything like a stationary target (relying on being fed). He has been / is an incredible running machine. I doubt there has ever been a CHF who has covered as much ground as Nick over the journey. Needless to say, he has had some great team mates as well.
