He and Hodge are a complete waste of space.

Brad Hodge was terrible, added nothing.

Jess Dane was much better apart from the interviews with dad.

Overall a good race, was SVG ever in doubt? No not really

Dave Reynolds getting close to Pussywagon territory with that comment about the hairless cat.
He wont last long in the commentary box if he keeps that up

Hodge was fine I thought, doesn’t pretend to be an expert and looks like he’s enjoying being at the events.

We complain that motor racing doesn’t get cross promotion or reach outside the normal channels, then we get someone that potentially has a reach to another sporting area along with actually loving Motorsport, and we pan him and say he adds nothing....

Those comments are why they’ve hired him for commentary! ARG knew what they were getting

Nobody enjoys cross-promotion.

It is tiresome.

Yet essential if you want to grow

Supercars has been saying that for 24 years

Mr Hodge might enjoy being at the events, but we don't enjoy him being there.

I've never heard any motorsport cross-promotion when watching the cricket, football, netball, basketball, or any other sport. Always seems to be a one way street. Likewise, never seen Crompton, Skaife, Murphy et al getting a "fluff" gig on any other sport, yet they ( Hodge et al ) all think they can have a go at motorsport "because I'm a self-confessed fan".

I have a set of golf racquets somewhere, but that doesn't entitle me to pollute the Australian Open with my 'knowledge' of the sport.

I’ve enjoyed Mr Hodge’s contributions to the telecasts this year.

Do people complain about Greg Martin being on the Fox Sports V8 telecasts?

Peter Brock used to get plenty of fluff gigs on Channel 7’s AFL coverage.

Scott McLaughlin used to get on AFL 360, likewise James Courtney on NRL 360.

What about the cross promotion that the likes of Grant Denyer have offered for years?

There are far more objectionable people on all sports broadcasts right now. Brad Hodge is fine, he loves the sport clearly and isn't a bad fit amongst their TV line-up.

PS The weekend of the 6 Hour was great fun up there, really good mix of categories, had 2010's 12 Hour vibe about it.

I would qualify that by saying that the other classes besides the 6 Hour ,most notably TCR,GT and TransAm,gave the meeting a very professional high quality feel.A lot of the support programs at both the 6 and 12 Hour meetings in the past have had the feel of a state meeting.
As a matter of fact it is a better line up than this years 1000 support line up-Utes,Toyota 86,Carrera Cup and Super2/3.
