Bartel’s comments were spot on, it’s no ones turn, it’s earnt. 

It was the tone in which he said it. like it was the MFC's fault that we had been touted as a premiership chance or why not The Dees. 

The guy is a first class blog he's a vanilla special comments blog.

He's a smarmy bastard. My God, that simpering grin ...

He thinks he's intelligent, but his mangling of the English language at times outs him as a meathead. His big stupid glasses simply confirm that he is a meathead who mistakenly thinks he is intelligent.

He is a living example of the Dunning-Kruger effect.

He’s definitely pro St Kilda for this game. Didn’t he coach them for a while? Might have a soft spot similar to when Roos commentates us

That commentary where he hoped McCartin was ok was fair enough in his concerns but how Jetta didn’t get some love for his courage is beyond me 

I was incensed when he mentioned that McCartin had a history of head injuries, but failed to acknowledge that Nev came close to retiring due to concussions.  

Ignorant or biased I don’t care - just poor commentary and poor research and knowledge of the game.

Watson he's a tool, wasn't he a great coach lol. absolute [censored] of the highest order.

Wasn’t StKilda going about as well under his tutelage as they are going now?  Or were they, could they be, worse ?

It kind of felt like the commentators were told to talk up St Kilda today, maybe they thought if they did that they'd be entitled to an easier whack when the wheels fell off?

Although in general how bad was BT, didn't know about Tracc's finger, said numerous times that Webster caused the 50 meter penalty which went to the saints (even argued with the others when they pointed out it couldn't have been a teammate the ran through the protected area. Was the guy drunk, or is he just that stupid?

 I had no idea what he was talking about, and clearly he didn’t either. 

As regards Tracc’s digit - it was all over the newspapers, and most footy media.  IsBT so wrapped up in his own opinion and his own world that he doesn’t follow the news?

Bartel he's a piece of work that pip squeak. Did you hear his comments the other week "Everyone is saying its Melbourne's turn to win a premiership, i don't know why everyone is saying it, it's not their turn" or words that effect.

He's a yes man no opinions of his own.

It's a fair point though

there're no turns - earn it

Tim Watson who today said

Petracca is one day going to break a game open

Tom Mcdonald just adds another dimension to their forward line

Melbourne are just applying so much pressure getting numbers to the contest and their set up is preventing St Kilda from moving the ball quickly

Yeah he hates us

Why does anyone care about Watson? Honestly he was one of the worst coaches of his generation. 

Let him stroke it over the saints, doesn't change the result.

Got to love Demonland.

For the past few weeks it's been all "god we are crap, we have no idea, phark Melbourne", then we win a couple and it's all "Tim Watson doesn't rate us, god he is crap, has no idea, phark Tim Watson".

It's a beautiful thing

He does not hate us, no one should ever be only positive about any team all the time and no one should be all negative about any team, everyone makes mistakes no team plays a. perfect footy. I think too many are making it personal with Tim, nothing he said about the dees today was over the top, or personal most people like to see the underdog win. The saints are really bad they tried their guts out to day, which is even more concerning for them, I always  thought that they never really hit the bottom when Lyon left, they are now there it starts from here their rebuild.

It's not about rating us, the entire commentary today was from the viewpoint of what the Saints did or didn't do, what they needed to do etc Completely unprofessional

Was that the Hawthorn game ? If so I thought his comments on us, our structures and game style were spot on (on the day)

I normally don't notice this kind of thing, but in the first half it was pretty clear.

Paul Roos is just as bad when covering Melbourne games though.

Irrelevant though? No. One of the best players I and many others saw through the late 80's and 90's. And coached at the highest level. I reckon he may know a bit more about the game than you and me.

Also played his 1st AFL game as a 15yr old.
So I'm tipping book learnin' wasn't a priority.

He is a bloke of morals. He came out swinging against the afl any their bad treatment of Essendon. He may have forgotten it destroyed his sons career. 

Guy is a tool. Hate when he commentates. More than eddy. Maybe

To quote from an old favourite show of mine:

"Tim Watson's only crime is being Tim Watson. It is also his punishment."

As other's pointed out, he barracked for the Saints today and will go home disappointed.

And that is the pattern of his life for more about a decade now.

Well I watched it, listened to him and was unaware of any bias

There was one point when the Saints finally got out in space and his comment was "here we go, come one" hahahaha. If that is impartial commentary then I am Santa Claus.

Most commentators start cheering for the side getting done anyway.
Makes for a far more entertaining telecast when it's close.

True by and large, though I can recall many occasions when we were getting done when the commentators chose to put the boot in rather than coach so enthusiastically - perhaps we deserved it.  However the amateur coaching Watson and co were doing started before it was clear who would dominate. And it was pretty much all they talked about in the first part of the game.  

If only we could have the option commentary replaced by the umpires' mike.

I'm not sure how some of the people on this website function in the real world. "Mummy, the mean man on the TV didn't say nice things about my football team". If you don't like the commentary, turn the sound down.
