I liked Bruce particularly earlier in his career. I think he may of overcooked some of his gushiness by the end.
I don’t particularly the recent phenomenon of spending two thirds of the night awaiting one players involvement, be it Fyfe, Nic Nat or Dusty. By all means, call it when they dominate, but also call it when they duff it. Even better don’t talk about them when they are doing nothing.
Well done on an extremely successful career across all sports

In recent seasons, I muted Bruce more than any other commentator. Now he's gone, it's a straight choice between Dermot Brereton and Jordan Lewis.

I don't like any commentators to be honest. The less I notice who's commentating, the more I'm focusing on the footy and the better the commentary must be. I'm not after personalities, just a description of the footy.
Nathan: When did you get balls?
Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.
Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.

I like it when they tell me something I don't know about the footy. Rarely happens now. Captain Obvious Brereton particularly included.

I watch with the sound off. None of the muppets calling are impartial, and none tell me stuff I can't see for myself.

Richmond, 74 points up on the Deaf Cheats, fourth quarter - some Tiggy lines up and kicks a goal to go 80 points up - JB's comment (to go to a commercial break):

"Well, this is starting to turn into a rout."

Honestly, how bloody dumb is that commentary...

Drew Morphett was a great commentator from the past.

Dennis Commetti was a great commentator from the past, then he got a TV job.

Hypen - surely you don't mean John "DE-FENCE" Rogers do you?
He started the downhill spiral into American style commentary.

RIP Frank Sparrow

One benefit of being my age is I can remember Frank Sparrow, the best caller ever. he could make a 10goal shellacking sound like the best game ever played, he was especially good at calling the brawls.

Its stacks on the mill but I tell you what they want to get on with it, its a right a left, a right the umpire is sorting in out now and picking the teeth off the ground. a FREE KICK HAS BEEN PAID HE LINES UP FROM 30YARDS OUT HITS THE DROP PUNT AND ITS A ......point.
