    Thats great news i enjoy Dennis Cometti’s commentry, I dont mind Bruces his not as good as before but still ok. I still wonder who Seven will get the do the two saturday games which they will cover? I personally want Mathew Campbell and John Casey. I found John Casey’s commentry back in 2008 to be better them the idiots they have now at Fox. So if Seven were smart they would hire him, because i know Ten wont for the NBL coverage.
