    This guy makes Fatty look like an absolute polished professional. Get him off the air!

    Battle of the half wits for worse commentator this year between Sammy and finchy.

    How many commentators are there now? It really bothers me how little training these guys have. JT certainly doesn't use the Queen's English.

    I like him but not as a commentator

    Give him the Footy Show, he could make a good comedy product

    A few minutes into the season opener and JT is calling Bellamy ‘bellyache’ and Milford ‘milf’. This sort of thing really adds to the amature vibe of NRL. You’re not commentating on your mates in the park, it’s the premier league of the sport. Thurston was a hell of a player and is a future immortal. Not a commentator. I swear he puts that stupid laugh on. Slater can f**k off too.
    Jobs for the boys!

    You can thank the Broncos and their “TPA’s/promise of work after playing if you play for less money” for this

    Sam Thaiday is there for a pay day. But he is a really funny gentleman, and I can't get enough of him..

    Solid gold comedy.

    What about that time he wore a dress?

    As opposed to when it was NSWankers getting all the jobs? I don't like JT or Thaiday either but I don't see the difference between them and Anasta, Kimmorley and a stack of others.

    Nothing to do with Qld or NSW. I agree, Anastasia is awful. Joey is shit too. I think Wally is at least professional. I’m sure Cam Smith, as unlikable as he is, will probably be quite good in the media.

    Not all the stars of our game need to be commentators.
