don't often agree with Gus, but on this one he has no argument from me.
He seems to be making a lot of sense latley.
In comparison to that Hunter Valley Commentary mob anyway.
I think they are making Gus look very good. Gus has always made a lot of sense but needs to drop his biases to get all-round credability.
Gus is a tosser.. but he knows his stuff.
I often agree with him... he just comes off as a bit of a dickhead at times but I don't doubt for a second his football knowledge.
Gus sounds familiar for some reason. Maybe he's just a misunderstood ENTJ?
Gus just loves his footy, since the Roosters have lost there way he's been a much fairer judge.
That is a very good point mate. My old man has always had a great hatred for gus gould... always saying that "he talk out of his arse" etc.
The other day we were watching the Penrith V Souths game (he goes for Penrith) and he actually said "Gus, is a good commentator these days isn't he??"
It took me back.
Gus is a fat no-nothing and you shouldn't get sucked in on his one-off comments. We beat the Gold Coast easily with Bailey in it. They're the retirement home imo. Buderus is a dirty mongrel who lookes good in a piss poor team. Smith regularly outplays him. Nathan Hindmarsh can tackle, and that's about all. Gould is a wanker, always was, always will be.
Dont stop there. You could submit your critics review on every commentator and player in the game. And then you move on to all the forum fans.
I must admit his love of the game that shown in his pre match commentary is worthy of a bucket being placed in the from of the TV for all the gladiatory tripe BS to flow into.
To me allot of this build up is aimed at the kids and the few people that live life through the NRL.
Is it fair to say that without Goulds over the top mutterings of how good Joey apparently was, Joey may not be regarded as "the best EVER"?
Face facts DSM5, Gus has probably forgotten more about footy than you will ever know
Still does not change the fact he can be so farking annoying at times.
Sure, but to try and suggest he is a "no nothing" on footy is about the dumbest thing you could read
Kiwi, Gus Gould was in nappies when I was running around in the ARL. He was an ordinary player and an ordinary coach sourrounded by a wealth of talent, similiar to Bozo in that department. I rightly reserve my crits to anyone who annoys me and lauds those who don't. That's what opinion is. He is a fat bag of wind, similiar in style to Warren Ryan. Always commenting after the fact and playing favourites.
You mean NSWRL?
The "surrounded by wealth of talent" can be applied to any successful coach, because to win, you need top players
The bit i have left is what i find most puzzling. Commenting after the fact ? He wirtes proactivley and is often the 1st to say something on many facets of the game, and more often than not, it is bang on the money.
Agree with that.
While I think he is a very biased commentator he is never short of praise for every player in the game. A credit to anyone who is a public figure of the game.
Well, this thread now explains why DSM5 doesn't like Matai much - DSM5 is from the old school.
