    Brenton Speed is so shit. Knows sweet f**k all about the game but carries on like he’s an expert.

    Hughes was very good tonight.

    Hopefully he can replace Nable

    I thought he was pretty god. It'd be good to have him on a game that didn't involve Bulldogs. I know all commentators are perceived to have bias, but just interesting to see how he goes if given more games this year & especially one that didn't involve Bulldogs.

    So according to Buzz, Kent and Crawley, Ivan’s the bad guy because he wouldn’t answer questions about Penrith in the Tigers press conference.
    These blokes are unbelievable.

    He commentates afl and A League as well as the NRL. It seems there’s nothing he can do.

    Had a laugh about that.

    Either they’re retarded or maybe they didn’t wanna make creepy Crawley look retarded so they didn’t piss off their boss, his brother

    Ikin quoted that Gould made an offer to Cleary. Cleary said there was no offer. The 360 guys can't work out the misinformation. Based on what Ikin said that might be the misinformation.

    Tomorrow theyll have Crawley on to have his whinge.

    Anyone who won't talk to Buzz, Kent or Crawley are automatically bad guys. The main reason for the NRL existing is for DT gossip.

    Ivan and Trent are just terrible human beings for not helping them write their column.

    We’ve moved on from the ref crisis to the coach crisis. Give it another few days and we’ll be onto the next crisis of some sort that they will talk ad nauseum about for two weeks. Be nice if we had footy shows that actually talked about footy, here and overseas. But that would require employees that actually new and cared about the game instead of the media gossip tarts we currently have, vossy aside.

    I think there are quite a few shows that do cover footy on the field with analysis - Big League Wrap, Sunday Footy Show, the pre-game & post-game shows on Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday on Fox League & Channel 9. In my opinion, people on this forum will never all like what is on, but that's only natural - especially in an era when fans are more opinionated than ever (due to social media).

    Other shows have a mix of an entertainment angle (Thursday Footy Show, 2 Matty Johns shows, Professor), others have an approach based around the news cycle. (360, Controversy Corner, 100% Footy)

    I think we have more than enough, but it's like on-field decisions, people will never agree about this.

    The amount of shows is about right imo. Fox League don’t need to replay each of them 10 times though. I’d much rather watch a classic game than the 4th replay of last night’s 360 and most fans would be the same.

    The same goes for the papers. Crisis to crisis.

    Rarely talking about the footy.
