Memo Ray Hadley..

Post by Tiger_heart » Sat 10 Aug, 2013 10:46 am

Ray, as a professional broadcaster you are doing yourself no favours by not learning how to correctly pronounce the name of many rugby league players on Polynesian heritage, and what's worse, you and your co-hosts appear to have great fun in coming up with your own versions of the player's names - this is not only disrespectful to the players, but to all other sport commentators around the world, who at least make an attempt - I don't know if there is a code of professionalism that applies but if there is, I strongly suggest you go and learn it.
As for our players, go and do your research next time, or ask our media manager - but please avoid us the embarrassment!

Well said. This guy is a deadset joke. He's a commentator- the way he made fun of players names and at times the way he criticised their performances, he doesn't deserve to be a caller.

This can extend to Anthony Maroon on Triple M last night. He continually pronounced Seumanufagai's surname as

at times i think people are ridiculous with their whinging about commentators,but i have to agree with you on this.
tired of the bs when ava is involved.
i can't say i remember this crap when fox are broadcasting.
9 really is an amateur broadcast by world standards.

I could tolerate the mispronunciation, but not the constant fawning over Jaryd Hayne. That was worse than listening to Rex Mossop calling a Manly game.

You should try listening to Andrew Moore sometime. Some of the crap he's said in the past borders on slander

Don't criticise Ray - he'll call you an imbecile and then get that fat heap friend of his to heavy you.

He's obviously a world class commentator. Who else starts rambling about his favourite Lollies mid play

Seem that when he gets with Fittler they are out of control. Almost every broadcast I've watched with these two they are laughing at others expense - it's one thing to have light-hearted banter but how they carry on shows little or no respect.

Just out of curiousity, what is Ava's correct pronunciation of his last name? I've only ever really heard commentators say it out loud and I'm terrible with pronunciation, so I was wondering if anyone could clear it up?

Its worse when Johns is there. He and Freddie spend the entire game trying to one up each other.

Hadley is a tool. I got the impression he had money on the eels the way he went on last night. No kidding there must be someone, anyone else they can chuck in the booth.

I cringe every time I hear his annoying voice

Well how would you pronounce it?

I think this is a rubbish thread in my opinion. I don't think they are offensive at all. I also think they pronounce the names as they are advised.
I think some people have run out of trash talking the tigers they gotta start having a go at the commentators for name pronunciation?
Please.

I honestly can't believe this thread. Can someone point out a specific time he was offensive?

And be specific. Someone bagged Anthony maroon for Ava s surname but I'm trying to work out why ? That is how it is pronounced for fks sake. Try and say it different.
