Post your examples:

So, prematch vs Souuffs:

Apparently the Rabbitohs "came into fruition" in 1906.

WTF?

He has also twice referred to Ben Henry as the "Warriors captain" (presumably a hangover from his U-20s commentary).

Haha I'll have to re-watch, I didn't notice...

He at least hasn't yelled too much..

Haha wtf, Stray Dog copies his voice/pronunciation.

Has Lavina made any stunning comments?

I remember reading a comment last season that Lavina was interviewing Simon after one game and said "Congratulations on the win." Which was nice except that the Warriors had in fact lost.. Minor detail, Lavina...

Only line from Husband that I remember today was "And the fulltime siren sounds for the halftime break."

He's still not as bad as McIvor or Halligan though.

Lavina is the queen of leading questions.She tries to turn any innocuous interview into a sideshow.

And I guess the Warriors aren't eating oranges at half time, running across the ground like Mudd Bay Crabs or anything of that nature anymore....

One thing about being at the game - I guess that got shown on TV too - was they had a TAB guy there giving the odds. Not entirely sure how I feel about the relationship between the Warriors and the TAB and the open promotion at the game. I remember after every over of every cricket game this summer (or so it seemed) there was a TAB ad. I know, for someone who bets it's a bit of a double standard maybe but it does feel a bit iffy.

What happened to Alan Mac?

Why are NZ commentators so bad?

I don't really mind the new blokes. Their voice is easy to tune out if they start to annoy me.

Yeah, it really frustrates me when instead of asking questions, she makes leading statements. She gears the interview to go where she wants it to go, instead of trying to find out what the interviewee actually wants to say.

Nothing, as far as I know? I think he's still calling league on Radio Sport?

He doesn't enjoy commentating on TV - he much prefers radio.

Either way, I'll never forget: "Australia! You're dead! You're dead! You're BURIED!"

I'm a fan of Dale. At least he knows how to pronounce our players names properly.

What little I've heard of him - calling other games - I've been impressed with.

Sports commentary should take it's cue from a line from "The 12th Man Again": I want you to keep it up-vibe and keep it interesting, no crapping on with boring annecdotes.

And the "fulltime siren sounds for the halftime break": translation: The start of the second half, surely? :D

I've speculated before that it's something more...ahem...powerful than Red Bull.

Welcome to the forum btw.
