Homicide appreciation thread

Hats off to the man.

Truth bombs about how the Kings players are "stealing money" etc. and the post-game interview with Majok.

Really making strides

Long timing coming - someone who is telling it how it is in the NBL commentary booth.

He had an appalling start but now he is legit.

Yup, agree he started off cringeworthy, but the last couple of games I've actually been pretty impressed...

Like the premature grey hairs on my head, I have accepted he's here to stay and it's not as bad as I thought it would be.

He wears his heart on his sleeve and his filter is set to brutally honest.

I'm an unshamed Homicide fan and i do not care who knows it.

"stealing money" - that was Gold. I think he was still keen to slip on some kit.

The whole crew they have on commentary this year is working well. Even Redhage is getting better, as sick as it makes me feel to say that.

Redhage only barely works if playing off of Homicide.

He's the most boring whitebread player in NBL history.

WHITEBREAD.

While I'm showing love, got to show love to the NBL and their match reporting. Been getting better over the last couple seasons

It would be nice now if the Aussie commentary would stop talking up there mates now as well, sick of how good Cadee is and Greer talking up his ex team mate Pineau up, we actually see what's happening out there.

No one believed me how boring Redhage was until he started commentating. Still not happy to be proven right because it's that painful to listen to.

What did homicide say about kings players stealing money?

Reply #652124 | Report this post

Yes, Redhage sounds like a 12-year-old reading his first speech to a school assembly, but I think he'll get better. There have been fleeting, and i mean fleeting, glimpses of personality.

we also have to remember he's new to this talking to anyone who doesn't have a whistle thing. Be patient.

He basically admitted he was pussy whipped by his wife in the first Perth telecast. Does that count as personality?

Homicide sayings Kings players stealing money is quite hypocritical.

One thing you have to give Homicide credit for is.. he isn't afraid to speak the truth!!

Most commentators are fence sitters(Greer,Redhage etc) or those who read from their Black books of notes from the early 90's and you have the one who really should stick to calling rugby.

Homicide has no filter when he's behind the mic and makes for good conversation.

Lets see if he's told to tone it down to avoid hurting some of the players or coaches feelings.

Like saying that he'd heard rumours about Childress signing with Adelaide, and then crowing that 'YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST!' when he got confirmation, despite starting those rumours almost an hour after it was officially announced?

I dont really sense good chemistry with the commentary team whenever Homicide is involved. In fact I wouldnt be surprised if his co-commentators want to punch him in the mouth at times. He may be entertaining for the under 12 audience, or the wannabe gangsta market, but hes pure garbage as a professional commentator who adds nothing of interest to the broadcast.

One massive annoyance I have of him at the moment: since when does a persons appearance mean anything?? Kyle Adnam looks more like a surfer than a baller? Give it a rest Corey! Sorry, I know this is an appreciation thread but I couldnt help it.

He's improved in leaps and bounds. When he came into round 1 I was wondering if he even cared about the league, now he's leading the debates on who is the best point guard, and is basically speaking truths many commentators are too PC to. He has got his act together and now I like him.

Since it's an appreciation thread... I may be a Perth member but Homicide I appreciate you asking Redhage, which of him, Vukona, Rychart or Boucher was the dirtiest player in league history... gotta love questions without warning!

Let's be honest here, we had all the twitter build up of who is the better point guard between Hammer and Homicide and yet we DON'T have them both on commentary, that would have been epic but it was a bit of a let down hearing Redhage.

Oh look to appreciate Homicide we have to hate on someone else.

He was spot on about Kings players not playing hard enough and not earning their pays. Singh is a massive man and yet he doesn't try to impose himself at all... why not set some bone crunching screens and show your team mates that you mean business... Sydney are going to be embarrassing until they get their shit together

I love the man honestly I have been a kings fan for over 25 years and the only reason I didn't switch off the Adelaide game at 3 quarters was because I wanted to listen to Corey. Loved him as a player love him as a colour commentator.

he is growing in me. I wasn't a big fan at all to start off with and while he can still get annoying at times, I love the banter and discussions he creates.

His Twitter game is hillarious at times and he is not scared to say what everyone else is thinking.

"Say what everyone else is thinking" is code for “speaks shit about things only dumb people think.” See Trump, Donald.

I think the issue two seasons ago was when he was used as the sole special comments guy. Whenever he's been in a three-man team I reckon he's entertaining because there is someone else actually analysing the game.

Re Redhage, while his delivery is plain I really enjoy his contributions, being straight out of the game his analysis is more up-to-date than the other special comments guys.

Homicide said today that if Melbourne was serious about winning today's game they would have to sit Goulding on the bench.

Good hard comments, I think most of the other commentators only praise CG43.

It did feel today that the commentary team was cheering Melbourne on.
