'And the [Team] will be playing from in front tonight.'
The captain obvious stuff like "that's not what they wanted on the first set after points"
Ch 9 commentators after he pulls a big hit "Thats an Origin play"
Blocker has been saying the Raiders have "big forwards" all year. We actually have one of the smaller packs this season.
I'm positive Fittler once said "the team with the most points will win this game"
Drinking game - take a swig any time these commentators say one of the following:
Warren Smith: "room service bounce!"
Brenton Speed: "touch pass"
Corey Parker: "eyes up footy"
Dan Ginnane: "hello!" / "goodbye!"
Phil Gould: "that's not a penalty"
Ray Warren: "if memory serves me correctly [states interesting fact handed to him by statistician on a piece of paper]"
Peter Sterling: [during a video referral] "what are we checking for?"
Brad Fittler/Andrew Johns: [blank stare] "Ahh sdgsnn iyseb ahana!"
I hate it when commentators say a team has "totally ambushed" the opposition.
Like what, they didn't expect the other team to play hard and score points?
Darren Lockyer constantly offering excuses and defending Boyd all year. Wonder what he had to say yesterday
That was Daley
Ray Hadley - “centre/wing three quarter”
Blocker has no other point of reference for anything in Rugby League or for anything that occurs anywhere on planet Earth. It's all about forwards.
Laurie Daley: "they jam in" (thank god he's been banished to god knows where)
Anastaisms aplenty here. He is a walking, talking living cliche of the worst kind.
Speedy always letting us know his ability to multiply by 6 suggesting a late first half field goal. Always.
Anasta when a team is down by 20 with 5 to go - “its really important they are next to score”
Everyone - “its not his go”
Brenton Speed: "IF YOU DON'T MIND"
''Shut the gate''
''Put down the glasses''
''They won't catch him''
''Dead set, in the fair dinkum department''
Classic Rabs (actually the last one is classic Billy Birmingham)
I miss the good old days of commentary cliches... when they were good. Sadly you don’t here gems like this anymore..
On the burst
A big “don’t argue”
Face massage (although it has had an innocuous recent resurgence)
Turn of speed
"He's on fire" - Andrew Johns. Every game without fail.
NO NO NO NO NO!!!
Not a vowel to be seen.....
Separate names with a comma.
