Vautin in the grand final with Lockyer
Commentators should be seen and not heard
There are no standards to be a RL commentator it seems. As long as you have a name, you're in. Hodges, Lockyer and Parker ffs.
At least Parker can speak clearly...Lockyer is terrible to listen to and Hodges mumbles most of his words.
the NSW team is harder to get dropped from, than get picked. Boys club
There was a replay of the '09 GF on last week and Daley was one of the commentators.
I had forgotten how bad he was, awful is an understatement.
Obvious, cliched dribble.
Well it sounds like league viewers everywhere have dodged a bullet because Daley is now rumoured to be staying on as NSW coach.... except those league viewers who are NSW fans of course - in which case the news is bittersweet as your Origin team will likely continue to plumb new depths in 2018....
It's hard to believe he lasted at Fox Sports as the main colour commentator to Warren Smith for 11 years (2001-12, 2008 excluded as he was at Ch9 that year)
I was OS in 2008, what was Daley like with C9 crew and why did it not last?
Darren Lockyer is probably the worst, not only does he have a terrible voice for TV he is completely boring and offers almost no insight into the game at all.
Separate names with a comma.
