He went to primary school with my son so I can confirm he did get an education.
a fake one tho,its a freemason programme,its actually not an education, its a programme,we all go to those institutions & get brainwashed
just because someone turns up to a building labelled a 'School' does not mean theyre maximising or unlocking the ability of the brain
and it doesnt mean we're learning the truth

After Jones kicked his goal he started a ramble about how impressive he’s been playing as a small forward since he was brought in to cover Butters injury. Jones has been playing as a defender all year til the last quarter of tonight’s game when he was thrown forward cause he was having a mare. Jobe could not have been more wrong if he tried.
Heard this one last night and thought surely we deserve better. If you have no idea what you are talking about then probably talk about something else.

There was another good one last night where he said "they've passed the gauntlet" or something similar. The expression is "thrown down the gauntlet".

I also like when another commentator feeds a line out to Jobe because he hasn't said anything for a while, but it's just dead silent so they have to ask again, but this time specifically asking Jobe a question, and his answer is always something in depth like "yep".
The gauntlet bit was great because one of the other commentators had already used it in the correct context as you noted and Jobe was trying to keep up.

Many people are passionate about the game and read it well. The job though is to articulate that to the audience.
The gaffes are one thing, the lack of knowledge about some teams/players another, but it's his ability to actually complete a coherent sentence or two which should be the death knell of this career path. He has second long pauses in some sentences, he mush mouths simple words, he loses track of who he is talking about, restarts sentences 3 words in... the list of basic sins he commits is endless. He would be awful commentating anything.

These retired players need no training or have to meet any course requirements to speak on national TV, so the sky really is the limit. Or as Dipper used to say "Shoot for the stars and even if you miss, you'll land on the moon".

Young journos that want to get into commentary will spend wkends 'calling" races, football, any live sports on to a dictaphone, listen back, share with fellow students, take notes, rinse repeat, honing their craft until they're ready to actually do live broadcasts.

Ex-athletes do their training on live TV and we're the ones who suffer. It's a farce.

"That's a big discre... discretion between them and Port."

I think that 'discrepancy' is the word you're looking for, Jobe.
He tried a few times to get discrepancy out but couldn't get there - even though it was the right word - he instead just substituted it with discretion because he knew he could say that one even tho it made no sense

....or to run the gauntlet.

The journos you're talking about are the ones doing the play by play call though, not throwing in a 'special' comment here and there. There's a huge difference.

Interpretate the gauntlet
Throw down the gauntlet in medieval times was to throw your metal glove or gauntlet to the ground in a challenge to someone, if they accepted, they picked it up.

Run the gauntlet if /was a form of hazing or corporal punishment. A person would run between 2 lines of people and get beaten on the way through.

There's a 1970s movie named The Gauntlet, it's more in line with the running the gauntlet. It's a Clint Eastwood movie where he is escorting a witness to a trial. The gauntlet is the path to the courthouse with every man and his dog trying to stop him from getting the witness there.

Yeah I remember that one, by the end it gets to almost Blues Brothers levels.

Agreed. We're disgracefully unprofessional with regards to sports coverage in this country. Cricket just as bad. Too many boof head, flog ex players get a gig with that who shouldn't too.
