    ROFL at Michael Ennis tonight. Fair dinkum sounds like James Hooper with that tough deep voice. Corey Parker doesn't sound much better.

    Employed by Fox/News, paid by Fox/News. Looking at your list though makes realise they are carrying some sh*t in their line up and you left out Raymond, Yates to name a couple more. And let's not forget those on Qld(home of tards)only.

    Vossy is starting to shit me with his reminiscing during his commentary. Every kick or tackle is "a'la Jo Blo in the 82 quarter final", or some shit. Who gives a rats?.

    Kev Walters is the most Biased Turd of all time. Time to sack the useless dribbler

    As others noted, Sterlo, Andrew Moore and Jimmy Smith. I'd also add Ryan Girdler, makes good points on panel shows though I haven't heard him commentate.

    I know this will be rubbished but I like Gordie. Talks like he played, straight and hard with no bullsh*t. He often looks embarrassed to be sharing the couch with dribblers like Hindy and Fletch.

    Kevin Walters is deadset one of the worst commentators I've listened to. Doesn't seem to have much clue at all and has a real redneck voice. He reminds me of those 2 guys in the Spongebob movie that ran that gas station.

    Roach is quickly becoming the worst of the pack. He is getting almost unbearable. .

    It's amazing how few of them can actually analyse a game as it's unfolding and point out different teams tactics.

    Fox have got to Ch 9 cricket proportions of too many on the couch and too many in the booth/on the sideline.

    1 caller, 1 tactician, 1 colour/sideline clown. There's your recipe for success.

    Then again, you have to create jobs for all these blokes post-football so they can earn their TPAs. In the old days, they were just kicking coaches and waterboys for a few years after they retired.

    Fatty takes the cake. There are tribes in the upper Amazon that know more about the game.

    Phil Gould has the potential to be the best commentator and analyzer of any sport in the country but his constant negativity and crappy banter with Rabs makes him one of the worst. He is too sydney centric as well and rarely gives non sydney teams any credit when they win.
