Ten AFL Coverage (2002-2011)

Lol rediciolous coming from an eastern stater . Considering most of the bias comes from eastern state commentary against eagles and Fremantle.

Bad commentary is bad commentary. I’ve pointed out plenty of biased Eastern state calls/ callers over the years.

And became the first female AFL commentator on commercial television. Who could forget her classic call on Jimmy Bartel’s match-winning point in 2009?

Slightly off topic, but is there a reason she is hated by many AFL fans?

Discussed elsewhere but she’s just not a good caller, and people single her out because she’s a woman, while her ability isn’t actually much different to the poor standard of FTA callers.
