Nable was OK. A bit unpolished but no nonsense. Tempered Blocker a bit.

Butchered a few names, wondering whether Cheekum and Rockcow are playing next week.

Like the OP i thought he was very very good. Most refreshing commentary in years.

Who give a you know what if he was nervous and got a few names wrong. That wont last but his modern and fresh style will.

Enter the next great caller!

Ill reserve my decision to give him a fair go. I wasnt impressed and it did sound like it was just a bloke who had won a competition to call a game .

Each to their own but i think youll find most people will find his common man approach much more enjoyable than Andrew Voss's verbal diarrhea.

Just need to put a quota on the number of times he uses 'momentum"
Yeah,i can handle 'momentum' thou.,its when the commentators start throwing in 'pressure' every few minutes that i start to loose interest.

Couldnt agree more. Voss tries the comedy dribble, Ray Warren is past it and his verbal crap with Gould is annoying. I actually like Warren Smith or Brenton Speed. Just callers, a bit of excitement but not all the fanfare. But they need to know a fair bit about the game and players individually. I think thats why i said I'd hold off judgement for now.

Matt Russell is a good caller. I’m watching games on mute this year. I pretty much hate all of them.

I didnt know what to expect from him but i thought he was pretty good....not sure about Buderus as a caller....thought he was pretty average. Blocker is blocker....love him or hate...i actually like him....doesnt take himself too serious in commentary.

They went to comm cam at a few stages.....nable looked like Brad Pitt to me. Blocker looked like an old Italian Mafia character to me. The smiling Buderus in the middle of the two. His call reminded me of a Joel Caine I'd say.
Well its nearly time to have a 'CRACK'....Go you :sign:

Bloody good for a first call. He’s no Vossy but I’d be very happy if he called our game each week.

I get that Vossy isn't everyone's cup of tea but he calls the game like an excited kid because that is what the game does to him. He is the epitome of a footy fan. That's why I like him, he breathes the game and has an uncontrollable passion for it even if he is too OTT at times, it's not the type of OTT "look at me I'm league royalty" crap you get from Rabs.

Yeah he goes alright.

Still think Wazza Smith is the benchmark.
