Barney Rubble

Gerard Whately is a Moron

Recommended Posts

I have been Watching this moron on Foxtel, and listening to his diatribe on SEN for all of 2018.

I have also been watching him on FOXTEL in AFL360 for several years.

This year he has outgrown his own brains.

He now thinks he owns and runs the AFL.

From a guy that has not played decent football, but now thinks he is a football guru, is beyond me.

Earlier this year he stated he picked Melbourne for a Top 8.

Round 1, yes we lost a game we could have won (Against his team GEELONG)

Round 2 we won against the Lions (no comment )

Round 3  We won against the Roos (no comment)

Round 4 We lost against Hawks ( agreed a bad game ) (his comments were we couldn't make the the Top 8)

Round 5 we lost against Tigers (we were with the top team for 3 1/2 quarters)

Round 6 we  demolished the bombers (no comment)

Round 7  we demolished the aints ( no comment)

Round 8 The Dees have the most to lose this weekend. ( sorry Gerard Your Precious [censored] has more to lose than us Demons)

 

GERARD GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE AND START LOOKING OUT OF BOTH EYES.  (MORON No. 1)

You know what, I have been thinking this for the last 4 days, he’s an agenda hunter and started off the state of the game crap with his stupid forum. He likes the sound of his own voice. Used to be a fan, now I turn SEN off between 9-12 everyday.

Most boring presenter ever employed on SEN. Talks way too much cricket in football season & should be sent back to the ABC. Hutchy ruined morning radio when he put a Tobin Brother in charge of a prime time sports show.

Whateley is just symbolic of the footy media getting carried away from week to week.

I remember last year, at one point before Round 6, he said Sydney were no chance to make the finals. Fast forward to August and all of a sudden it's Sydney are unstoppable. September comes, they have a bad night and it's done and dusted.

The Hawks game for us was 4 lost points againat a very good side and a disappointing percentage drop. Nothing more. Whateley wasn't the only one to overreact.

This bloke loves horses more than is quite appropriate for a human being in my humble opinion.

Whatley is one of the best commentators going around and possesses a very football brain.  He certainly knows his stuff and has the ability to communicate this without ego or fanfare.

He and SEN aren’t a great fit though imho.  Commercial drive-time radio calls upon a different skill set.  

ABC grandstand and the Offsiders haven’t been the same without him.

Whately does not have a football brain. He is all about Whately. His EGO is skyhigh.

Agree - Gerard is a bit too 'cerebral' for the SEN milieu - they much prefer the bogan, 'Loveable Aussie Larrikin'-style of commentator

Well, that’s probably down to opinion.

The way I see it is that he confident, assured and articulate.  Some may see that as arrogance, and that’s fair enough.

The egocentric commentators seek to sensationalise, exaggerate, crack in jokes, make up nicknames, laugh hysterically at their own jokes and treat the viewers/listeners like they’re fools.

Basically Brian Taylor and all his ‘mates’.

We are talking about Whately, we are not comparing him to others.

Premier dipstik, is whately.  has good marriage with 'robbo'.  they speak the same lingo.  crraaapp.

It's more 'rockin'  horse',,,  in Gerards case.  not so high, just motions.

It's a bit like Steptoe and Son in reverse.

Yes he is, if Carlton beat Essendon the knives will be out. Goodwin bought himself a small reprieve from the headlines with comprehensive wins against two poor teams, Carlton have been utter garbage and if they beat Essendon the press will go bananas.
