Just watched highlights of last nights game. This guy has to be the worst play by play commentator in at least 20 years. There was that kiwi commentator who called Warriors games for a while who was so bad Fox Sports started using their own commentators. But apart from him, no one else comes close.
Could not agree more, FOX has some good commentators, but he is not one, I hate when he is on, he must know some one to have kept his job.

I like him - he’s understated.

Prefer his relaxed approach any day over Voss’s self indulgent trash
Lol... I'm a Voss fan but no don't like Nable
Me too, Vossy is good

Vossy is way too dramatic lol
Gus Gould with spit and polish basically
Do you remember Vossy used to host a show on 9 with Gus Gould. Gould hated being there. He kept saying, “you’re a funny man Vossy”. Was awkward to watch at times

Good friends with Matthew Johns apparently. Bit like Gus Worland making a career out of being mates with Hugh Jackman.

He is used more as an analyst as compared to a commentator but he would suck at both.

But he’s better than Hadley by a mile
Yep, Hadley is so bad. He doesn’t seem to know very much about the game. Just talks a lot.
Need more props.

You mean he is there to trash talk teams ?

Thats all Anasta does. I have to mute half time chats otherwise the TV is in serious danger of some damage on the days we are playing rubbish

I agree. Anasta is very negative hey. No wonder he was so unpopular with his peers

I don't have Fox but the games that I have been able to watch I really enjoyed because Vossy is such a good commentator.

I’m with the OP - I’m not a fan of Matt Nable. He doesn’t have the voice for commentary... he’s got a similar voice to Ricky Stuart, and it just sounds awful in the commentary box. Vossy is my favourite.
Year of last finals appearance:
2018 - Roosters, Storm, Rabbitohs, Sharks, Panthers, Broncos, Dragons, Warriors
2017 - Eels, Sea Eagles, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers

Ray Hadley is a terrible commentator for TV as well. Stick to radio Ray... you don’t need to provide commentary on every detail... we can see the game!

Every time 😂
He usually does the out-of-Sydney games for channel 9 because Rabs doesn’t like to fly. The only thing worse than watching another broncos game on free to air, is watching a broncos game with Ray Hadley commentating

I stopped watching when he was commentating a few years ago. Before Fox could do the Friday night games, the Broncos were always the delayed games. Hadley , ads and the boring broncs. Pure cap.

No matter how hard I tried to stay awake, those delayed games always put me to sleep

You could get a homeless guy on metho and he'd be better than Hadley.
