    Continually stating things like

    "Sydney Uni kick it to Sydney Uni" or "Bulldogs in the backline kick it to a Bulldogs player on the wing"
    "What a GREAT kick" - continually said after a long high bomb into the forward pocket

    I could go on and on but I'm sure you get the drift. Bring back the old commentators who had completed enough research and studied the player jumper numbers.

    Well Nettheim on Saturday copped a FALCON right on the specs and, hey, wouldn't THAT hurt if you were wearing specs ?
    No wonder he went off bleeding !!!

    It doesn't end well. I told my brother not to wear sunglasses when umpiring, 1. because you look silly, and 2. the players should be able to see your eyes when you are officiating, but he doesn't listen to me.

    Then this happened. Fractured orbital socket and broken nose, lucky not to lose sight in his eye

    Is the A Brawn who kicked 3 goals in the Grand Final for Pennant Hills reserves the same bloke that was playing in the 90's when Pennant Hills kept losing Grand Finals.

    Its not a common name.

    no attachment PK - was this:-
    1. a falcon ?
    2. a disgruntled player ?
    3. a rogue bounce-up that went wrong ?
    4. an old opponent using him to give referred payback to YOU ?
