    I understand that he is in the media and sometimes has to make controversial comments to remain relevant and get his opinion heard. He should also understand that he needs to balance with not being a complete dickhead sometimes.

    Imbeciles have a limited life span in the media. Reasonable people get sick of them.

    If I hear another commentator congratulate a colleague on air for the crap job they are doing - “great call there BT” - I’ll spew up.

    It's shitful isn't it? Especially because it's rarely a great call. They aren't Peter Booth and Graeme Dawson.

    I'd never thought of working it the other way. Thanks mjp.
    Edit: Woops, I don't think I've thought this through correctly. Thanks for the effort anyway!

    Re: Football Commentators

    Brian was particularly obnoxious at the start of the game tonight. He seems to have toned it down a little though. Could he have gotten some feedback (maybe "cut back on the bullshit quotient BT") at quarter time?

    Bruce is just flat out creepy. He isn't as up on the game as he used to be either. There was one goal St Kilda kicked from a fair way out in the second quarter that Bruce didn't call as a goal until it bounced through. 5 years ago he would have been onto it from when the player kicked it.

    Re: Football Commentators

    Wonder how much Bruce calling it remotely from SA off screens has to do with his lack of broader vision.

    on another point, and some may have already seen this, but given I just found it I share for others like me: https://theconversation.com/why-afl-...-poetry-103604

    Bruce calling remotely is a good point actually.

    He's still creepy though.

    Thanks BT I really needed to know that Ratten has been digging into the flavored milk in the fridge behind him.
    I'll sleep better tonight.

    On another note how often do we see players mark the ball inside the field of play take a couple of steps back off the mark which then puts them over the line and when called to play on can take 5 strides to the right outside the field of play and get away with it.
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    Gotta love Alan Partridge's commentary. A lot better than BT anyway.

    Re: Football Commentators

    BT and the umpire being hit by the ball in line with the goal post, what a wanker. I just don't see the features of the product. Nothing positive, literally.

    How can it be that even for someone admittedly cynical, that not a single part of the product appeals? It's maddening.

    Re: Football Commentators

    And then Daisy asks a tactical question about Grundy not doing much around the ground, Cox not doing anything either, with EFC doing better at stoppages and stupidly thinks that asking whether Grundy could play forward or back gets silence from the white men in the box.

    Valid question, completely ignored. What a sexist shitshow. If Lingy asked it things would at least revert to Bruce giving Duck a virtual blow job.
