    Are they actually allowed to?

    It's ruining games for me. The cheer leading of teams has got to the point of being ridiculous. Last night was the cresecendo....

    The peachey call was 50/50 and given it was given a try when it went up it was 100% the right decision

    Uate knocked it on - absolutely no doubt

    Walker definitely looked offside to me but again, 50:50 at absolute worst

    So all this shit with Penrith being given no credit and the commentators insinuating that manly were robbed is a joke. They are on it again this morning on the footy show

    Am I missing something?

    Commentators should live like monks.

    I don't know if last night is an example of that. Check the match day thread here, seems to be the common thoughts. It seems like you're just having a tantrum more then anything.

    Fittler and Joey are by far the worst of this though, you can tell who they're on every game.

    Johns and Fittler are f**king great
    They appear half cut with thousands on a team each game
    It's amazing

    Also depends on who they're mates with.

    If they're Barretts mate they're going to be on manly.

    Gould dick riding Parra was the best.

    "They deserve" a try.

    Gould was insisting that Storm players should be penalised for slow play.

    Something that hasn't happened since 1936.

    Yeah Gould was pretty unbearable. I'd say he wanted melbourne away from Penriths side of the draw.

    'The pass was forward but they deserved a try' is one of the stupidest things I've ever heard a commentator say

    I distinctly remember Gary Freeman's commentary during Souths vs Cronulla in 2007....dead set felt like he had a punt on the match

    Yeah, drives me nuts every time I hear that.

    There's always that team that gets favoured by the commentary team/media each year, this year it's a toss up between Parra and Penrith

    If parra won storm would be on the opposite side of the draw to Penrith. Now if Penrith beat Brisbane they'll play storm in Melbourne

    If channel 9 implemented a no betting policy on its commentators, a few of them would stop showing up to work.

    Actually.... that ain't a bad thing. They need a clean out

    Vossy was on Triple M the other day telling a story about how he had money on Logan Swan FTS in an Anzac game he was calling and lost because of a video ref mistake or some such (can't really remember the details).

    Anyway, he prefaced the story by saying "Yes, all commentators bet on games - get over it".
