Vossy is my favorite. Sad to see him getting phased out.

It's been announced that Sterlo will move up to be the play-by-play caller when Rabs and Hadley go to the Olympics.

I reckon the best caller out of the lot of em on Channel 9 is Tim Gilbert. He called a game last yr on a Friday night and i thought he was flawless

Still would love to hear David Morrow be given a TV gig at Channel 9

Easily the best caller in Rugby League

Ray Hadley is like listening to nails on a chalkboard!

Ray Warren is like listening to an 80 year old Parra supporter reminisce about the 80s - and then the 90s when he started earning again!!

All the Foxsports commentators (since David Tapp fortuitously left) sound just like Vossy or Warren Smith as they all go through the same voice training!

David "the Dragon" Morrow still sounds like the work experience kid trying to suck up to & garner favour with their overseer (aka the Wok) - and that is after 30+ years!

Morrow & Ryan are the best callers in the game. Would hate to see either of them be ruined by channel 9.

Morrow and Ryan put me to sleep. They don't seem to realize that they are on the radio, hence their lack of play-by-play calling. And then when the Wok is giving his insight he takes an entire set of six instead of being short and sharp like any other co-commentator. Doesn't help your audience when you take two mins to give your analysis when they can't see whats going on. But in saying all that the Wok is still one of the sharpest minds in Rugby League. He just has a boring disposition

Morrow and Wok get too bogged down in something that's happened five minutes ago instead of keeping up with the play. Morrow is biased towards St.George when he calls their games.

Voss = Tool
Rabs = well passed it, and a tool

The good thing about going to the game is you don't have to listen to any of them, just the sounds of the game. You don't get 'swayed ' by anyones opinion then.

I used to like on Fox when you could turn up sound at the ground and turn off commentators. Don't have fox anymore so I don't know if they still have it.

I like Voss. He comes out with some Good Ones. Hadley is a major bore. A dogmatic motor mouth of the highest order. As for Sterling, he may be ok. He loves to take over the call when Warren pauses. However, a great player does not a great commentator make. Just look at Daley & Fittler!
