    I’ve been watching most games with the volume down, so at least I haven’t had to worry about the commentators going on and on about them. I’ve actually been blissfully unaware on most occasions and have only realised after the games when someone has tweeted something about a team getting all 8 points or something.

    Glad I’m not the only one who watches with the volume down. Just out of interest Ian, why do channel 9 have to have a male commentating, they clearly know very little if anything about the game.

    Oh don’t ask me. It’s very annoying. They clearly think they know better and they think the women need a man to help them or to bring some sort of authority to the coverage or something. If Sue Gaudion is commentating with Liz Ellis or Cath Cox, then okay, I can listen, but anyone else, nope. But it’s not just the blokes. I can’t stand Anne Sargeant either (and nor can a lot of other netball fans here) but she just ALWAYS gets a gig. Not sure if it’s still the case but one of the bosses of the TV coverage used to be former Aust player Keeley Devery and she always has to get her friend Sargeant a job. It’s embarrassing. I’ve seen the schedule for this week and on Sunday, Costello and Sargeant are commentating together, so I’ll definitely have the volume turned right down for that one. Which is a shame because Laura Geitz is also on.

    In her day l think Simone McKinnis was the best, cleanest WD around.  Closely followed by Peta Scholtz/Squires.
