When Huddo calls Ellis “Allis” .....
Nothing wrong with the term in isolation, but when Matthew Richardson says 'intercept' over and over and over again, because he has nothing of value to say, it's horrible commentary. It's like a new word has been discovered.lmao what are you meant to call it then? Intercepting is literally what a player has done in that situation
Agree but remember these guys have producers, who are their boss dictating how to call games. It is not just a bunch of l bokes who turn up 10 minutes before the game and start spewing bile. They are coached, coz thats what mr producer thinks you wantEverything from the opening introduction.... Basil..... If you were to down a beer for every time you has to listen to an irrelevant comment, drivel, or out and out error from this man, you'd de-gas your barrel by half time.
Any commentator that refers to a specific player as a plural.
BT when he overeggs players he likes, or, rails against umpiring calls he doesn't agree with (FFS, in order, announce it is controversial, go to the replay, make the call, let it rest). At times, he bullies other commentators seemingly oblivious that it is really all about the game, the game that has continued to play some time ago. I guess he makes it, all about him.
(As mentioned earlier) More experienced commentators, once very good at their craft have become parodies of their 1990's 2000's selves, regurgitating tired or suggestive homoerotic catch phrases. A lame attempt to show their love of the game.
Agree with others that had posted similar to the Ritchie Benaud mantra for television commentary “Put your brain into gear and if you can add to what’s on the screen then do it, otherwise shut up.”
It's like they can't call it punching anymore because that's too violent FFS fistingBT has just called Jake Lever "the best fister in the game"
LOLs but sounds like he himself has plenty of experience in the act. Giver or receiver is the unanswered question.
It's actually starting to completely do my head in.Commentators not being in the same state as the game they're calling is fast becoming one.
It started in the 90s. Bruce and Healy terming guy McKenna as suchThe “teams Quarterback” can GAGF.
I am a big NFL fan. But no player or position in AFL is remotely comprable, nor should it be.What’s more, most AFL fans could not give a toss either way trying to compare it to an American sport.
