Canberra 2 hours behind us ??.Daylight saving has really f*cked things up.
He should have been put out to pasture 30 years ago.
Now he's a corpse with a microphone in its mouth.
F*Ck the old merkin off. He's had his day.
Rabs reckons it was 'an origin like atmosphere' last night. Idiot
It's sad what's become of him.
Growing up him voice was iconic, but now he's useless.
Forgetting names, mispronouncing, getting confused with the play...it's embarrassing.
I remember in the 2017 Grand Final every single try was called the same way...
"Dale Finucane has got himself a Grand Final try!" As a fan, it makes watching replays pretty underwhelming.
I'm sure Roosters fans will feel the same when they sit back and listen to his call of last nights game.
Gus is gotta go too.
Spends the whole game whinging about the refs.
Is there any other commentator in the world who spends as much time bashing the sport he's supposed to be commentating on ?
Andrew Voss is the best caller in the game. Shame the bullshit that went down with him and the assclowns at 9, but I’d rather him be on fox with their superior coverage. It was embarrassing listening to Rab’s f**k it up time and time again last night.
You can add Rothfielf to the list of people that need to go.
Every article is bashing someone, usually the refs.
These guys don't realise they do more harm than good. For a casual fan tunning in and all they hear is negative commentary, they'd turn off pretty quickly, what's the point of watching a game if even the commentators hate it.
They cover it with "rugby league thrives on controversy". Such BS.
The contrast between the gf call and the nfl matches this morning is chalk and cheese. Opinionated dinosaurs vs experts.
He will retire soon enough and replaced by Daryl Sommers.
Seems the DVD's these days use the Fox Sports commentary, which is done for when they show the replays.
I thought it was interesting on the last Matty Johns podcast, Paul Kent telling a story where Buzz got trollied at a 1993 Dally M after party and tried to wrestle Ricky Stuart’s Rothmans Medal off him. Ricky also nursing a freshly broken leg.
They were all cracking up about it but could you imagine the outrage Kent and Buzz would manufacture if a player did that these days?
Poor blokes can’t even nude up at a Mad Monday party without guys like this writing a 4 page spread about it and getting the player charged by police.
It was time to go 10 years ago
Edit: holy shit... I didn’t even notice the OP time stamp haha
No. There isn't.
His whining is the worst advertisement for the sport. And it it seems to be influencing Andrew Johns as well.
his carry on after that 6 again call reversal was more of an embarrassment than the blunder itself. i like him on 100% footy, but he's awful during games. why does he have such a high standing as a co-commentator at 9?
That was hilarious
Dicky knee on the sidelines wouod be awesome
The most embarrassing bit was how often he mentioned auskick. No one gives a farke that a player kicked a sharon in their life. Stfu and call the game you're watching
I called some time ago when minnichello was still playing.
RTS and tupou were the wingers, RTS copped a nasty split in an earlier round from memory and wore headgear for a few rounds against the norm.
So you got 2 polynesian wingers which already has rab in turmoil (like the racist uncle at xmas that everyone just accepts and is an unwritten law that you cant pull him up for anything). 1 is 8 foot tall and the other is wearing headgear, he couldnt possibly still get them mixed up.........yep he did.....MORE THAN ONCE
LOVED Rabs as a kid. As alluded, he WAS the voice of the game for many years... But it's not even funny anymore just how bad he has become
The bloke doesn't give a f**k, he collects the pay check and that's all.
Separate names with a comma.
