    Just goes to show we are all so different. I cannot fathom how anyone would like Vossy's commentary. It's mind numbing. His immature jokes are predictable and just 'landfill.
    I find i like bits and pieces from all over. Not as a caller, but i appreciate Fattys comments on how the game is unfolding. I like Rav's voice,but yes he may be on the way out. Lockyer just doesn't have it,no timing and to slow.
    Another season of Gould jibing Rav's will drive all away.

    Vossy irrates me a bit but as a pure caller I think he's the best of the current/ex Channel 9 crew. Needs to know when he's actually adding to the game and when he's just white noise though.

    This whole "Fox gets all the games aswell" thing - does it continue through the finals and to the GF? I may never have to listen to Rabs confuse Jack Reed & Alex Glenn again.

    Thats good enough - I wont be able to hear commentary for Origin and probably wont watch the test anyways.

    Yep different strokes for different folks.

    I personally like most of the Channel 9 commentators but just can't stand Rab's calls anymore - he is damaging his legacy.

    Vossy is the best caller and has been ever since he was at Ch 9.

    The 'experts' are much of a muchness as far as I'm concerned and I like Locky, Joey and particularly the Fat, as much as I like Gaz, Noddy and co.

    Sadly, the only bloke I really can't stand at Ch 9 is the King.
    Disappointing given he is the best player I have seen but he really should give up the commentary and footy show appearances.

    hate NQ games on fox, belcher and walters with tate on the sideline. i don't mind belcher but he is better off not being the play by play guy. he and brandy are the only fox experts i generally like to listen.

    Walters, gaz, anasta, tate etc are all worse then freddy, joey, locky and finch for mine

    fox also throws in a game a week called by matt russell, argh.



    i don't mind triple M's call when Ginane is calling with guys like girds or gordie, i do often mute the TV and turn them on




    I do the same look forward to the Monday night radio coverage. Ginane, Sterlo and Girds is great to listen too!

    It still pisses me off last year when Rabs and Joey talked about how Brett and Josh Morris looked alike... For fucking 15 minutes.. Yes they're twins how radical is that now lets move along

    As Honeysett said, last year on the Easter weekend games Kimmorley made some absolute pearler stuff ups. One of them was when he said horocious instead of horrendous or atrocious.

    The other one that weekend was "Stampled". He was talking about a centre getting run over by a second rower (can't remember who) and was trying to say stomped on and trampled over at the same time.
