    Most memorable piece of commentary

    So sports fanatics, what line uttered by a commentator is permanently embedded onto your brain - no matter how hard you try to get rid of it. It can be something clever, sarcastic, stupid, inspirational - whatever tickles your fancy.

    Mine has to be:
    Simon Hill:"Aloisi, Cahill, CAHILLLLLL, Tim Cahill has done it again, What a goal by Tim Cahill, 2-1 Australia. Oh what a wonderful moment in Kaiserslautern."

    Honourable Mention:
    Dennis Cometti on Tony Liberatore: He went back into the pack optimistically, but came out looking misty optically.

    Last night, can't remember who it was:

    "..and that was a great tackle on Barry from the much smaller Dick."
    Also, Craig Foster after Aloisi slotted it home was awesome. He just went nuts.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    "NICK DAVIS! NICK DAVIS! I DON'T BELIEVE IT! I SEE IT, BUT I DON'T BELIEVE IT"

    3:30 mins, and the commentary came from a Geelong supporter. Was awesome professionalism.

    Haha, was an epic scream.

    Wasn't commentary as much as cheer leading.

    I'll never forget the radio commentary when Tony Lockett kicked that point. Was insane.
