    I was listening to Ray Badley on 2GB who thinks David Morrow is a decent fellow.

    As a kid in the bush, I grew up listening to footy on abc radio.
    I recent years tho, when in the car listening to a game I will actually go to another station to avoid listening to this opinionated ####er and his old mate Warren Ryan, who frankly is past it. Please give us some commentators with some idea eg Sterlo

    That was low and the NRL should step in on this as they are the people giving the ABC the rights to broadcast.

    I actually don't mind Morrow. I've never heard him be overly critical of Manly and I listen to him a lot. Warren Ryan is a tool though, and has an obvious grudge against Manly.

    There are two things that I find wrong about this.

    The first is why are you listening to Ray Hadley?

    I'll hear the joke before I try and hang the bloke. Everyone has a few jokes that push the limits in their repertoire, doesn't mean they are a racist

    Morrow's a goose, and so is his sidekick. Funny thing is, they laugh continually at their own jokes throughout the 'show', and now get caught out with a very bad joke. The level of commentating throughout the game is incredibly shallow, be it press or on air.

    I think he is a goose and I can't abide his commentary. 1st rule of broadcasting - a microphone is always "on". Also the southern US jim crow accent has no place in the northern territory.

    Couldn't care less about the racist joke.Broke the golden rule of assuming the mike is off

    The bloke should go because he continually tells bad jokes ad nauseum to his old mate and Svenson, who then laugh at these said bad jokes before they move on to the next Manly war crime that has been perpetrated on the field.

    Good riddance

    I'm no fan of Morrow - couldnt care less if they sacked him for his ordinary on air performance overall. But the hysteria over such innocuous things is truly baffling to me. Not smart by Morrow certainly, but to have a 30 plus year career ended.......please.

    Why is the first answer always to pander to the alarmists and start sacking people ???
