Commentary Team For The Grand Final

With the Melbourne based commentators available - I like Santamaria, Homicide and Gaze to commentate all Grand Final games.

Thoughts?

Has Casey even called a game yet this season? Doesn't seem like they even want to pay to fly him over from Adelaide to call any games doubt they start doing it come GF time.

Yep, I'm with Homicide.

Dwayne Russel has his place in commentary - AFL. I don’t mind his AFL calling but the NBL knowledge is cringeworthy. He tries to put a spin or a pun on every play. Tone it down Dwayne, you’re not Marv Albert.

They should move the hub to Adelaide and John Casey can cover all the games by himself

He is the nostalgic voice of the early 2000's, is a pro, knows his stuff, doesn’t talk for the sake of hearing his own voice etc. he really is a wasted talent, being crossed to, to discuss hungry jacks burger giveaways

I'm too young for Casey to hold any nostalgic value, but he's such a professional and I think is clearly our best caller.

The sideline reporter is obviously going to depend on who's playing, what time the games are, who's broadcasting them, etc. If the games are on SBS Lachy Reid can't do them, for example, so Redhage would be in place in Perth. Not sure if there are similar clashes in other states.

I love Santamaria as a colour guy, and it irritates me that they try to get him to do play-by-play but he still gets plenty of opportunities to offer insight over the course of the broadcast so it's not a huge issue. Casey would be great if they can fly him in for the grand final. Heverin and Luke haven't been too bad.

Gaze, Hooley, Santamaria, and Heal are all capable, although with Heal it can depend who's playing.

But we can construct these dream rosters all we like, I think we all know Homicide's getting a gig. If Melbourne make it they might be content to put him on the sidelines but otherwise he's going to be in the commentary booth.

That said he's honestly not been that awful this year. He seems a lot quieter. Again, depends who's playing - he's obnoxious during United/Kings games - but there have been games where it feels like he goes minutes at a time without chipping in.

should be really simple: if you have a financial interest in any of the players on either team you should not be commentating on that game.

Commentary should be neutral, Heal obsession with his mates is horrendous.

We will all end up making our own commentary on here anyway.
