Voss says Raiders most entertaining team of 2015

Post by greeneyed » September 8, 2015, 9:52 pm

Which team has been the most entertaining to watch throughout 2015?
Andrew Voss

The Canberra Raiders.

My criteria for this is heavily weighted on results, and by that I don't mean wins and losses.

I'm talking about the number of close finishes a team has been involved in; the number of good comebacks; the times a team has squandered a lead; individual brilliance.

And for mine, the Raiders are top of the list on the above terms.

It was good to see them get up in golden point last Sunday, because they have unfortunately been on the wrong end of some heartbreaking losses going down by two points or less in five games in 2015 – and all of those at home.

The free to air games are picked really early on in the season so they have to judge it based on last years performance, I wouldn't have picked us for much either... That said Channel Nine is still a joke... Good to see that under the new television deal they will be forcing a equal playing field for free to air games, although I'm sure the "better" spots will still be given to the popular teams like the forever Friday night Broncos matches.

And good to see Voss thinks that. Also this proves he isn't a Raiders fan, all us Raiders fans could list it as "Raiders most heart attack and depression inducing team of 2015".

He also put Rapana, Fensom, and Baptise under most underrated. I agree with the Rapana bit, not sure Fensom is underrated though, he is about where he deserves to be right now, same with Baptise.
Get Stuart to realise he is holding the club back and step down to player manager!

I would love us to be the team with the best work rate and the most miserly defence. Because that wins premierships. Being entertaining because all our games have 7 or more tries doesn't.

We only conceded less than three tries once this year.

We lost that game.

We've never won the comp by having the best defence. We did have good defence, however. Not the shemozzle that is our edge defence presently.

I think we are Vossy's other/ 2nd team. He has done plenty of calling for us in recent years, because we are only ever on Fox. So he sees plenty of us.

Interestingly he named both Rapana and Fensom in his underrated XIII.

Vossy is my favourite commentator. Loves the game and his excitement is so contagious. He's got great humour too. Had a good chat to him at the Manly game and he's just as good a bloke off the job.

Yep ch9s lose is foxsports gain. He seems to really like our style of play and loves calling the game.

He spent a bit of time in NZ calling Warriors games didn't he ?

I really like Voss also. He's actually got a brain and knows the rules, so when he berates the refs it's usually justified. I find him pretty funny.

Vossy is an NRL fan.. not a Sydney NRL fan, or a QLD NRL fan.. but just an over all NRL fan.. he seems to get excited commentating any NRL game, and as previously mentioned, his excitement for the game is infectious.

Worst thing Nein ever did to their NRL coverage is get rid of Vossy for Hadley

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

What a joke!

Years we've made the finals still see us only with two, maximum three games the following year. Results have nothing to do with it.

I like Vossy. Unlike the Channel 9 commentators, he is quite fair and will give praise where it's due. The few games the Raiders do get on Ch9, it's almost as though it's physically painful for them to say something nice about them - unless, of course, it's a player the Sydney clubs have their eye on...
And to all the people who doubted me, hello to them as well. - Mark Webber, Raiders Ballboy and Unluckiest F1 Driver Ever

I'm attacking in the right way, instead of just...attacking in the general direction. - Max Aaron (also eerily apropos for the Green Machine)
