    Malcom Blight's Coaching Comments

    Does anyone else who gets Blight as a commentator get sick to death of his coaching comments.Instead of praising Reids great marking ability we get a involved comment on why he misses goals and what he should do. Go back to coaching Malcolm ,commentating should be on the action of the game.Its not that his comments are wrong its just inapropriate when your player has just missed another goal .

    Disagree 100%
    Blight was a great coach and a brilliant player
    His comments are different from some boring others ( I can't stand Hudson) who repeat theselves and state the obvious
    He has identified a problem and provided a solution

    His unusual and direct statements are good

    Must admit because of the mindless dribble from most of the "special comments" people (Roos is the exception) I like Blight's unique take on things. He's not everyone's cup of tea I realise but I don't mind him. As for Lloyd and Lane last night, I don't think the swear filter could cope with my thoughts on those 2 so I will refrain from commenting.

    I was still getting over spending the afternoon listening to Quarterbrain and Robert Balls call the pies/eagles game. God knows why I kept the volume up.

    I disagree 100% as well. Blight has identified how to fix Reid's problem. He is spot on. I really like Blights insights, refreshing after the dribble of others.

    On a slight tangent, I heard Wall's commentating on the radio the other week. He was great, way better than when he makes special comments on 10.

    I actually thought that Lane was really glowing in his comments on the young age of the Swans list during the game.

    Blight was indeed a great player I cannot accept he is a good commentator, I also remember 2005 when he never had a good word to say about us and tipped against us every week. A point I reminded him of when I met him after the GF that year, politely but firmly! On Walls he sank to new depths yesterday when he opined " isn't it ...... when Collingwood get possession of the ball how they all swarm forward".....dooohhhhhh...just WHAT has he been watching, he gets paid to make comments like that?

    Big of fan of Mal Blight , mainly cos he's outspoken and honest.

    I even like Brian Taylor , who talks some rubbish but calls the game with the wide-eyed wonder of a 14-year-old kid.

    You can't fault Gerard Healey for his knowledge , but his style is rather dull.

    What I like about Blight is he talks about the finer points of footy. I like his 3 goal theory. That is; if you are 3 goals down with plenty of time on the clock you are still in the game regardless of the circumstances. You are still a chance.

    I don't mind Blight. He states the obvious sometimes but can also be quite insightful. As to his style, at least it's different - I find him very funny (perhaps not intentionally!)

    I also think he was spot on regarding Reid's kicking action and Blight knows a thing or two about a big kick for goal:

    I didn't hear Malcolm. What did he say about Sam's kicking?
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    He gave a coaching clinic on how Sam should kick for goal, and pointed out appropriately how good his in play kicking is and why it works, and why Sam's goal kicking doesn't go as well. He is right. However his usual banging on a bit over the allotted time is still a concern. However he is right.
