Not heard him yet. Is he an aussie?


Lilly, Jacob and Isaac, what my life is about. Although our route through life is not how it should be, I am a blessed man.

Without wanting to create a big love-in, he has been brilliant so far. He even made Halifax sound like a great place to be.

If he can do that, then he could make London v Salford on a Monday night sound better than a Polish sausage from the 3 Pigeons.

The best food in West Yorkshire is one of those carry out chickens from on Leeds Road in Huddersfield near Healey Mill. That sir is a fact and Voss has missed out big time.

He said when the two french players went to catch the same ball "La poop happens!" Absolute class!

Whilst I have really liked him, I made the similar point on the Brian Noble thread - why do Rugby League commentators have to try and be funny?

 

 

Who says he is trying?  This maybe his natural self and just perhaps he is funny in all areas of his life.  He certainly comes across as natural, just making off the cuff statements dead pan.  Sounds like this might just be who he is and that is why he is successful in his field.

Ok, so why do RL commentators have to be funny.

 

Are there any other sports that has had so many comedy characters commentating?

It's actually really grating now, why do we need a joke every time Masoe touches the ball?

 

Voss just doesn't work with Halligan. Better with Noble.

Cricket and soccer for starters.

I did think cricket tbh - what they do have though is balance - they have to talk for around 8hrs, so they are more entertainers and they always have plenty of detailed analysis to educate and entertain the viewer.

 

Soccer generally has serious main commentators. They may have some pundits with character, but not trying to be funny with smart-assed comments every other line.

I'd rather they told us a bit more about the game and the tactical side rather than doing their comedy routine.

 

Eddie Waring used to get stick for apparently treating our game as a joke.

I notice that Tony Hannan and Martyn Sadler are saying it is too jokey too. 

 

Almost enough to make me change my mind!

Sid Waddell in Darts was a great example as well. Golf commentators make quite a few jokes too, I don't really watch it, but remember one line of 'I watched Countdown the other day and got aroused, 7 letters wasn't a bad score.'

In football for me James Richardson is one of the most knowledgeable commentator/pundits, as well as being genuinely brilliant with puns, I wish he was on TV more.

I think it helps to attract/keep new fans. In-depth tactical analysis is likely to bore/confuse someone who watches a couple of times a year.
