The absolute pinnacle of sports broadcasting. Simply the best.
The voice of cricket.
spent countless hours in his company, seemed like a wonderful man.
He set a standard that so many current commentators fall woefully short of in terms of knowledge, charm and class. A true legend of the game.
Goodnight Richie, goodnight everyone.
Will always have his voice ingrained in my brain.
Met him once. He was really nice to me and tore the shit out of some guys I was netting with who were spouting some spectacularly homophobic insults.
the voice of my summer my entire life really

God knows how long I spent listening to him throughout my life.
The greatest Australian.
to be banned from the internet/life forever please. Starting with Piers Morgan. Thanks.
A broadcaster of unrivalled élan. Only stopped commentating on UK television owing to his dismay at cricket being taken off terrestrial telly. Class personified in everything he did.

the snowy owl with the understated voice
RIP a true great
