BT, Richo and Darcy's comedy routine are the only ones worth listening to. Why do people need play by play on tv anyway? Don't you have eyes?

BT and Dennis are by far the best. Don't really care for the others.

Mark Ricciuto is tough to listen to though!

The bloke that always does the Suns games showers me too. That might be Dwayne Russell actually...

I absolutely LOVE the MMM 'A' team of James Brayshaw, Gary Lyon, Jason Dunstall and Danny Frawley. Would never gets sick of those blokes calling the footy or even just general chat/banter.

Best - Huddo for mine, his call on the Lions comeback v the Cats was superb.

Worst - It's between Eddie and Dwayne Russell. Russell just always says the same things and Eddie well I just don't like him.

Best Special comments: Lingy or David King.

Worst: Can't think of a worst really, don't really like many of them though.

Maclure cant stand him

This

Cant stand Roo or Barry Hall at all sometimes you can barely understand what they are saying.

Dermie can flower off.

This

Forgot to have a dig at Roo. Has his voice not broken yet or what? Feel like I'm listening to a 13 year old just hitting puberty the amount of times his voice cracks and squeaks during a game

And this!

Great topic Quinny

First of all, what you said about Bruce in regards to how he stretches out his words, I LOVE IT SO MUCH! I find it so funny!  ;D

Squeeeeeeeeeeezy! And of course "Delicious" and other lines are just pure gold to me

You forgot the Dwayne Russell line, when a player just kicks the ball out quickly "Make's it somebody else's problem" LOL he has such dodgy 1 liners

Channel 7: Bruce and Dennis are great, Basil is even worst than that Channel 10 chick from a few years ago lol Basil is such a flog. BT was good on MMM years ago but now his crap. Lingy is just a legend and if anyone doesn't like anything he does they have problems. I love Richo but shower he is not a very intelligent guy lol says way to many obvious things and yeah Hamish is awesome and Darcy goes alright too

Foxtel: Huddo would be their best caller. Cant stand Eddie calling a game and don't think Sandy Roberts fits in with the type of existing people they have. Love when Ricciuto is involved with any game and of course Derm is a mega flog who loves himself David King is great if you love the analytical side of the game as I do, and I actually really like Matthew Campbell calling games too.

As for Radio:

I absolutely LOVE the MMM 'A' team of James Brayshaw, Gary Lyon, Jason Dunstall and Danny Frawley. Would never gets sick of those blokes calling the footy or even just general chat/banter.

The Saturday Rub with JB, The Lone Wolf, Spud Regis and The Purple Headed Warrior is the best radio you will hear anytime of the week. I would actually pay money to be able to spend a day in the box with those guys, they are just great mates and their banter makes for the funniest listening ever. Absolutely love the MMM A Team

Massive +1 for me!

Regarding TV probably Anthony Hudson I find the best. Dennis Cometti is still ok although I think Bruce brings him down a bit.

Where to start with the bad ones. Can't stand Bruce's orgasmic commentary and his obsession with reeling off stats and comparing every incident or player with something or someone else. Dwayne Russell exaggerates so much in his commentary eg. he'll say a player out marks 4 opponents when there is actually only 2 or he'll say a team is still a chance to win even though they are 30 points down with 2 minutes to go. Sandy Roberts (why on earth did Foxtel resurrect him?) calls so many players by the wrong names. Basil Zemplas is about 30 seconds behind the game with his commentary - by far the worst.

I actually like the banter of the Saturday night crew although sometimes I think they take it too far. Lingy and Spud are two of the best special comments guys, Gerard Healy and Tom Harley ok as well (although Clarko clearly doesn't agree ::))

I'm not sure why Mark McClure is even on for, he clearly doesn't want to be there and seems to hate life in general. I'm not sure why Roo is on every Crows game for. It's impossible to not be bias when you love a team as much as he does.

Most overused phrase in finals footy or high intensity games - "Perceived pressure". I HATE IT!

I pull my hair out whenever Bruce says "it's a good looking kick but is it coming baaack..." only for the kick to be completely off target dead straight 2 metres away from the goals.

Bruce also drives me crazy with "don't you think Dennis?" "SPECIAL" "CLEVER" and of course "HE GOES BANG!!!!"

Seriously, every match with Bruce commentating feels just like a complete rerun of every week since 3 years ago
