Was he the one that said "couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch of people" after McGrath bowled Vaughan on a no ball?
I think that was Nicholas.

In contrast to Boycott, who I can put up with, Nicholas is one I am finding myself increasingly disliking.

At least with "Geoffwey" there are no pretences. :p

I reckon Boycott is funny and shouldn't be taken too seriously.
Don't like Nicholas much. Too smarmy. Could be a game show host.
Tony Greig I'm not sure about. Seems to have brain damage a lot of the time, but that can be funny too.
Slater has been quite good. I didn't used to be too keen on him, but he's done OK.
Atherton - An acquired taste. Not as funny as he can be, but fairly reasonable.
Jones and Matthews - bearable, just.
SBS host Simon Hill - good.
Simon Hughes - great stuff.
Channel 4 in general - very good.
SBS - great.

Boycs is okay.
He may appear overly biased at times - but he also called it pretty fairly and squarely when Martyn was given out lbw in the second innings.
Openly admitted he couldn't believe the decision.
Not really the act of a totally biased commentator is it?

How could he actually defend that decison. HE HAD NO CHOICE.

Desperately trying to turn the situation away from your pathetic sniping doesn't change it, troll.

:rolleyes:
please take your obsession elsewhere. This is the cricket board and people discuss cricket not your violent tendency towards people on TV.

Yup, perfect troll behaviour. You just got completely exposed and now you're trying to change the topic and backpedalling so fast your ass is about to hit your face.

Childish troll! :)

You might be able to answer this question for me as you are one of them. Why do loonies follow me round the boards?

Surely Slats has been as one-eyed? Who can forget the reaction when Warne got Strauss out in the 2nd innings at Edgbaston?
Atherton went off at that as well, that's selective memory

It was a ball worthy of reaction such as Slats'

Yep, it was an awesome ball. Made Strauss look a fool.

The point Im making is that no-one batted an eyelid at Slats reaction. It seems ok to be one-eyed as long as your an Australian commentator. If your English and show any signs of bias, then preapre to be shot at.

Personally, I like a FEW biased commentators as long as each side is represented. Again somthing that C4 seem to be better at than Sky.

I see your point.
There actually has been some discussion on Slater's bias commentary. He's not really that biased and neither are some of the poms.
SBS has got good commentators except Boycott - he's the only i can't stand.

All commentators are biased towards their country, it's nature. I don't mind, but when it's blatant bias, then i get annoyed, like with Sky and that David Lloyd bloke, man he's a knob.
