Dennis Cometti

Dennis Cometti is one of the best known and most respected sportscasters in Australia. He had a promising career as a footballer, playing for West Perth. But his first love was radio, a career that took him to Melbourne in 1970 to work at 3DB and play football for Footscray reserves. Injury forced him to hang up his boots and he returned to Perth where, no longer being able to play,  he begin commenting on sports. Over the years he has worked at 6PR, the ABC, Channel 9 and Channel 7 covering everything from Test cricket with the great Alan McGilvray to Commonwealth Games and the Olympics. AFL remained Dennis's focus and passion which has earned him the reputation of being the most distinctive, eloquent and beloved football commentators the game has ever known.
