    Cometti's commentary at the final siren is very lacklustre and ordinary, I would have thought he would have given more being a Dog's man.
    He might have been in shock like the rest of us though.

    You would have thought it's the last time anybody will ever hear from you commentating and it's "your" old team winning an impossibly romantic premiership that you'd put a bit of colour into it.

    Then again as you say maybe he was a bit speechless like the rest of us. I know I would have been no good commentating the moment. At that exact time I could only mumble the word *!*!*!*! over and over again and I don't think that's what c7 would have been looking for.
    Get yourself a suit and tie
    And get your hair cut way up high
    Get yourself a lawyer, son
    You're gonna need a real good one

    Probably wasn't what Triple M were looking for, but it didn't stop BT! That was a brilliant moment. I've watched the GF *several* times, and Commetti and Bruuuce's call was terrible.
    Our club was born in blood and boots, not in AFL focus groups.

    In fairness to Dennis , MMM tried to throw to Darce to call the last 10 seconds and he couldn't do it. He was overcome.

    It was Dennis' last game and he would have been extraordinarily emotional. Won't hold it against him.

    What a way for Den to go out, Bulldogs Premiership. A team he has had more than a little bit to do with over his career.

    It was great hearing Darcy trying to speak in those last moments. He just couldn't do it.
