I might be more inclined to listen to Ch9 commentary if they hired Warren Smith.

Smith and Sterlo calling a game together would be golden.

What makes you think that, Barra? I've never found him to be anti-Tigers, he is always banging on about how good Tedesco, Woods and Taupau are and singing the praises of our up and comers etc. Sure he talked up a lot of the players in Manly last night also, but I wouldn't say his commentary showed any particular favouritism. All commentators will focus more on players from the team that is winning throughout a match and unfortunately Manly was winning.

He is just more annoying these days than anything, and bangs on about irrelevant things during the commentary, but I certainly wouldn't say he is anti any particular team, unless he has a wager on as some have suggested.
Just seems that when the call goes upstairs he's ready to support a decision against us... seems to gush about the other teams beating us.

I know he's gives the youngsters a good wrap, maybe it's just me.

I think the truth is somewhere in the middle. People are very sensitive in regards to their teams, and the slightest indication that a commentator isn't favouring their team, it means they have it in for them. The same way refs hate certain teams.

Word is definitely catching about about Rabs being past it. You hear his media cronies coming about a but publicly saying how good he is and there doesn't really seem to be a reason for them to be beating his drum. I think he knows the push is on.

The only commentary team I liked was Beetson, Boland and Peard covering the Saturday game on the ABC. Those were the days without BS, just pure footy.

I think you're right, but at the same time it was like he had his house on Manly.

I'm not going to go to lengths to whinge about how bad he was because he is generally like that every week. He normally backs a team and follows it through his commentary, I think everyone is only just noticing now because it was a Tigers game. I've long couldn't stand him, about time he gets the tap on the shoulder.

didnt hear any of ray warrens commentary as i mute the call and watch the action.

he may very well have backed manly and was thinking of his skyrocket.

ive always thought he had a soft spot for the western sydney teams - his son did play for parra and wests

and he is a hills resident i believe.

all commentators wear thin if you hear too much of them.

richie benaud believed, at times,no commentary is good commentary.every picture tells a story.

thats why i like the mute button.

Why in the hell do we need commentators anyway? Television is a visual medium last time I looked.
