Because every female appointment is thoroughly deserved and no chance of tokenism. She says 100 comments a game and yes some are on the mark but its just the constant voice and the tone of her voice that does my head in

Not really, that was their game to win, played on their terms. We didn't get 1 wood out all night. We were lucky to stay in the game to be honest, so taking a draw is good, even though we were up with a minute to go.

But if Acres had taken that mark.....

Nah we would have lost that game last year in the last 4 rounds so I’m taking it as a positive!

Kelly Underwood Channel 10 days, I'll accept tokenism. Daisy Pearce today is not tokenism, IMO.

So it's how she speaks, not what she speaks?

Say what now, reckon you meant to quote Booney. WRT her voice, could be worse, Kelly Underwood could still be calling or heaven forbid Judith Lucy

I streamed SEN with the tv volume down, it was only a second or so out. Derm was special comments with Gerard Whateley & Matt Hill calling

Also if big Harry could finish off you would have been home and hose.

I actually felt last night your forward line was dangerous. McKay and Curnow down there looked dangerous when the ball was coming in. Then with Silvangi resting in the forward line you really were stretching Richmond.

The problem was it just wasn't coming in as much ad Richmond had it in there's. It definitely felt like you were beaten in the midfield.
Read my reply. It is directed at you because you have double standards

Kelly Underwood Channel 10 days, I'll accept tokenism. Daisy Pearce today is not tokenism, IMO.

So it's how she speaks, not what she speaks?

Its both, if you're going to say 100 things you'll get a couple that make sense. Whenever they want an insight they ask Hodge, whenever its something obvious that any one off the street can see, thats when they ask Daisy. Honestly most of the commentators make it about themselves anyway

Players slipped over all night. The Ed Sheeran consequence.

Same may happen in Adelaide as the turf comes from the same place.
