    Michael Ennis is good.

    Gasnier is the worst. Last Saturday he may as well have dropped to his knees for the Roosters and be done with it.

    Can't disagree more.
    His dribble on the TV (I refuse to call it commentary) is nothing more than biased agenda driven rubbish. His "insights" into RL are are nothing more than predictable rantings awash with hindsight and hypocrisy.

    Without doubt Gould has an incredible knowledge of the game but it definitely does not translate as soon as he gets near any form of media.
    I always refer to there being 2 Goulds, football Gould and idiot clown Gould which is the one that appears in the media

    Bolts Hadley and his centre-3/4's are the worst. Just terrible. He should not be allowed anywhere near Rugby League. I don't watch Ch Nein anymore which helps with avoiding this turd on legs.

    My second vote was for Steve Roach. He tongues the nut bag in a big way. 160kg sack of shit that squeaks like a 10 year old girl.

    Is it Andy Raymond that said Matt Scott looks like he's come from WWE Hell In A Cell earlier? I'm sure he makes wrestling references every year (tackles looking like World Championship Wrestling and whatnot) so I can't hate on him.

    Even if his Bob The Builder style commentary used to irritate the hell outta me (has he scored it? Yes he has).

    Kevin Walters. Listening to him try and pronounce Radradra did my head in.

    Walters was abysmal yesterday. He obviously had a punt on the Dragons. How could anyone familiar with the game not know how to pronounce Radradra?

    As I've said before, it's amazing Fox persisted with him as one of their match callers for a decade

    Thats right "CHAMP"

    How good does the dickhead think he is when he does those halftime interviews and just ends it and snatches the microphone back.

    Cringeworthy.

    Saw Blocker towards the end of last year standing at a bus stop in Randwick (not sure what the hell he was doing there).

    The last time I saw him in person was on the sideline at the Knights-Dragons match in 1999. Since then (and leaving Ch9), he's put on a LOT of weight. Seriously, these guys such as Blocker and Big Marn must be pigging out on junk food 24/7.

    Halligan has been commentating for Sky NZ since 2001 (when he joined Costigan, who replaced Graeme Hughes). Quite amazing someone of Halligan's calibre has lasted that long in a commentary job.

    Surely he either must have friends in high places or got some confidential info on some of the tv executives
