its a shame. It's on TV, you can see and sometimes hear what's happening. They need to let the scene speak for itself at times; so much more powerful. The producers and directors are technicians with no empathy.
The problem is that the special comments people would normally be able to fill in with what is happening off screen. Calling off TV means they can't fill in those moments

Spearman, Hawkman - you're both spot on. Problem is, we have to get used to it.

The commentators for whatever reason won't arc up about calling off a TV. They're on good coin, no need to travel, and already think the sun shines out of their collective backsides. Why rock the boat?

Bit off-topic, but like last year's Olympic coverage, get used to Ch7 commentators staying in Australia and calling basically everything off a TV for this year's Commonwealth Games.

The viewers might not like it, but when it comes to big events, they are basically powerless - and the media proprietors know it.
