Bubba a) did you watch the game & b) if so what was your take on it?

There's a few things I know - Gould is paid to commentate, which is exactly what he was doing, he was calling it as he saw it, as he did later in the night when Roberts was sinned binned, no mention of that in the one sided story.

Secondly, he was 100% correct.  ;)

Yes I did watch the game, however even though he was correct , I believe commentary is more of the issue   Personally I could not care who won or lost, but as others have pointed out he is biased, which comes across in his commentary.

Umm, if you bothered to watch you would see that they have Fatty Vautin performing the same role.
He’s the bias Queenslander  ;)

WOD, As far as I could hear Fatty did not call the game, he is on the panel that analyses the game, he does not call the game, the bias of Gould is in his calling..

Let's be serious, that's nothing more than pedantic nitpicking.   :whistle:

You've got Sterlo, Wally, Locky, Johns, Fatty etc who all wear their colours on their sleeve due to their history.

Yet the nark singles out only Gould  :yes: At least he calls the game as he sees it and applauds good play regardless of who it was, unlike Wally & Fatty who might as well just have pom poms  :shutup:

btw can you point out how this is barracking? Or can you tell me what he should of said?


While the officials pondered what call to make, Gould — a former NSW coach — was in no doubt what the correct call was.
Almost immediately he said it was without doubt a penalty try — and he said it at least a handful of times after that.
“Should be a sin bin and should be a penalty try,” Gould added. “He was easily going to get there. Easily.”
Again, that was a sentiment he repeated several times before saying: “Come on, Mr Video referee. It’s a penalty try. No risk.”

That opinion piece  was by James Matthey at News.com.au..I should have made you aware that I cut and pasted his opinion, which if social media is anything to go by, is not far from the opinion of a lot of unbiased viewers.

Just a little more balance in his general commentary.

He emotionally addressed the NSW team before the game, how can he then sit in the commentary without being unbiased ?

Again I ask Bubba - What should he have said?

You're quick to throw rocks but light on evidence.

The commentators were watching replays of the incident when the quoted comments were made, he saw it, he gave his opinion on how it should be ruled, isn't that what he's there for? Any fair minded person would find it hard to argue with his opinion on that play.

Or would you rather he say a) nothing or b) lie

So again I ask what was so wrong with what he said and what should have have said 'to be more balanced'?

 ;)

Gintara, you are referring to that one incident, which BTW I previously agreed was the correct decision, I am referring to his general commentary, which I believe comes across as biased.

  :lol:  So you've got nothing to back up anything you say? Says it all really  :shutup:

You post a story about a specific incident yet when called out that it was wrong you attempt to defer to a different position about 'general commentary'

Face it, you were trying to shit stir about something you know zero about and got exposed  emthdown

I refuse to accept he is biased.

There is no doubt he supports NSW but he calls it as he sees it. If something goes against Queensland he is just as vocal.

There were plenty of occasions during the game that he was very critical of the blues

Who cares whether he is biased or not?

Turn the sound off and watch top quality Rugby League.

JWH exactly. Who gives a flying blank what Phil or any other commentator has to say ? Are people so devoid of grey matter these days that they cant watch sport and form their own opinions ?

Bubba's just showing his own bias in an attempt to shit stir which failed miserably, ya got to know the subject matter  :bulb: if ya want to throw rocks  :whistle:
