    I think at least part of that is probably to do with how quickly he turns in favour of whichever team is visiting if they happen to be winning a game against Australia. Loves it when Australia are losing. Goes back into fawning mode when they are on top.

    Yeah, they were (Grandstand). They had some young sounding Australian on, who I'd never heard before, didn't know who it was. Any idea?

    Don't mind the Channel 9 commentary as a whole. Healy can be annoying, and Mark Nicholas annoys the **** out of me. The others are mostly ok though as far as I'm concerned.

    There's usually at least one commentator that annoys me in every other telecast when someone else is commentating though. Maybe it's because I'm not used to their take on the game. Ian Smith is just a whiny girl though, and there seems to be a great many of the new commentators who are so concerned with fitting in cliches they're just boring. Hate Jim Maxwell. Heard him say some ridiculous things years ago, and seemed to be too concerned with renaming every shot to make himself sound semi-intelligent. He might have changed, haven't given him a chance though for the last 7 years to find out.

    Think the product placement that has come into Channel 9's commentary is detrimental to their efforts too. Should just let them talk about cricket and let the advertising people advertise.

    The worst commentator I've ever heard anywhere for anything though is Ben Ikin...****ing atrocious.

    Dravid, Punter and most particularly Sanga should become commentators after they retire. Sanga's articles on his favourite cricketers are fantastic.

    Ganguly should do ball-by-ball for Neo, IMO.
    Ponting as commentator would be awful.

    Step 1. Every player requires an adjective before he is mentioned.

    "Nicely hit cover drive from this sumptious batsman"
    "Turned down to fine leg by the magificent Ponting"
    "Great over from the ever-important Flintoff"

    Surely Packer's offer of a job for life to Greigy can't still apply now that PBL don't even own Nine.

    I think that's one of the reasons I don't mind them now. I keep thinking of the 12th Man whenever any of them speaks.

    That's true, always a great laugh.

    I'd just prefer a commentator who wasn't afraid to say what he actually thinks and that they could just shut up for a minute.
