A little crispy one Garry, a crispy chiko roll Hutchy and a crispy racist quip Eddie

When I first heard this I thought the complaints about Eddie were over the top. It was hardly to the Goodes level. Then when I saw the footage, the coin toss looked fine, so I wondered why Eddie was complaining.

Then came the “apology”:

“It had nothing to do with Cynthia Banham”
…Well it came straight after she tossed the coin, so not a great start…

“I just want to apologise if this was communicated the wrong way…”
If? Are we still getting these weasel apologies? If you think you were wrong, apologise! If you don’t, don’t! Don’t give conditional apologies, implying they are only applicable to over-offended snowflakes!

Ed, I try to approach this with an open mind, but you keep throwing more Gold Logies out the window!

formula 1 has gone down hill tragically in the last 5 years.

interest is only ramping up in the sport because of the netflix doco.


#2173

BT has always been my favourite. Reminds us all that footy is supposed to be fun.


#2174

Jason bennett and that italian bloke that commentates other off peak games.

■■■■ off the old blokes and give it to them.


#2175

According to a report in the Rage, Ediie wasn’t wearing glasses at the time and was not closely watching the C7 feed.
But somehow he knew it was a bad coin toss?


#2176

Eddie being Eddie, a ■■■■■■■■.

Would have been surprised if it helped something at Collingwood go under the radar at the same time.


#2177

At the moment most commentators get endorsed simply because they’ve played before, despite having no background in broadcasting. That is tokenism at it’s finest.


#2178

She’s better than anyone 9 have had post Richie.


#2179

I’ve seen this sentiment around the place lately. Haven’t followed closely enough to comment on a decline, but I still think it’s very, very good compared to a lot of sports.


#2180

No Bernie No F1?


#2181

Compared with the verbal diarrhea of BT - Warnie’s cheap and dirty pizza segment is almost a commentary masterpiece in comparison…


#2182

No sanction for E McGuire from the AFL over his latest gaffe. Not even a mildly worded statement.


#2183

He has an AFL vote and may be on one or more AFL sub- committees.


#2184

He’s a very important man.


#2185

And has multiple business interests with a number of the AFail Commision and Executive.


#2186

And he’s fat

Juat wanted to point that out


#2187

And an Idiot, and a scumbag.

A Fat Idiot Scumbag.

Yeah, that about covers it, … :smirk:


#2188

And very powerful…


#2189

Just a side note on player commentators, Nick Riewoldt is surprisingly ok. Informative and insightful without being intrusive or baffoonish.


#2190

Very informative, I hope he doesn’t go too far ala Cornes and Lloyd.
