    Sterlo and Rabs are both gambling addicts. As for the 'fake' controversy, i guess thats just what sells. Maybe more people tune into the postgame show/ dull as dishwater Footy Show or more crap for people to talk on Triple M.

    Gus wouldn't be gambling on games because of his involvement with Penrith. Fittler mightn't be allowed to either because of his involvement with City Origin depending on what the rules are.

    I think Gus is just more of a cheerleader for the teams he likes. He always pumps up Parra when they are doing well. In fact, I think he just likes Sydney teams and non-super league teams better in general

    When a young Adolf Hittler rose to power in Germany

    Coincidence? I think not

    Fox team has money on the Cowboys.

    Actually Roach doesn't, when he's the only one making sense that confirms it.

    You'd think commentators would be impartial but I can't think of even one that isn't which is a sad advertisement for the game from a broadcasting point of view. It's muddies the facts of a game and makes refs look worse as well. It's contrary conduct towards the sport they are making money from.

    I remember a few seasons ago coops scored an absolute miracle try in the dieing seconds that involbed a deflection and 3 or 4 kicks ahead after each other and generally pulled it straight out of their ass that left johns absolutely filthy (game was already won so must pushed it over the 1-12 margin or something like that). Next day on the Sunday footy show was still filthy, must have been a solid punt

    Anasta may not bet but he definitely believes in karma.

    Sadly it did affect result until the bunker was introduced. Channel 9 controlled what the video ref would see. Commentators would cry out for a replay of a call that went against their team or distract and rabble on about something else when a 50/50 went for their team.

    what the f**k does this mean? what we should just sit there watching moving pictures without audio.

    the games are resembling a charlie chaplin movie, so probably apt.

    be professional commentators and call what the f**k is going on, not biased opinions. if i want that, i'll come onto LU

    The worst part about the commentators betting on a team (or favouring them for whatever reason), is they called the game in a biased fashion, not exactly how things are happening.
