George cant carry the load as good as he is.... hes not a young man ... T L would be great or bring back Hauby 

George is doing a fantastic job alright! Here there and everywhere atm.

They should be going for fresh talent not old talent. 

Will be putting the mute button into action at the finish as all he does is scream.

Greg Miles doesn't scream the arse out of the speaker does he? Quality 

Big call to bag Tony Lee's commentating!

I am not the only one who has that opinion but I just like to be able to understand what is going on at a finish, McNamara is great is brilliant at that - not going over the top

everyone has an opinion, like arse*oles - everyone has them

Yes thats the one... with the railway line overhead ... he would get p....t off if the train came through at the same time a race was on.. Bobs long gone... but never forget when they used to have a 2 day meeting at Kensington Park ,Friday and Saturday... he had a horse run dead last on the Friday backed up the following day and won..No RIU back then !!!

As a kid while waiting for a haircut I would gaze at Royal Fair ( Alpheus-Valda Fair ) trained by K J Cunningham

They need to stop pissing around and announce it sounds like worse kept secret out.

Jason I heard what I presume is your brother(Dan is it?) at the Christchurch greyhounds yesterday. Sounds bloody good and will be a handy addition to the ranks.

Andy  is his name and yes he is my brother so wrapt for him he has worked hard and reaping the rewards. He is doing chch Tuesday and Friday next week  while trev is away. Racing board in a good position having 3 commentators under 30 on the books (andy, Matt cross and Matt gardener) so get at least 30 years out of them as long as nz racing can keep them onshore.

Which you would hope with the current commentators ages they need young talent

But they also need to show faith in them... not like what they did to Tom Wood.

What did happen to Tom...was it because he didnt get to the call the big days ?? I thought he was very good...I did recall him saying that on his last raceday call he went to use the company cell phone and post last race it was cut off... Poor form by his employer  !!!
